The August 2017 ipsy glam bag finally made it to my front door! I don’t know why, but it felt like I waited so much longer for this one. Whether I really did or not, it was SO worth the wait! The products were all “full-size”…every single one of them. And the theme was boho…which I’m all about! I can’t say enough good things about the bag, so I won’t even try. Let’s just say it was one of my favorites of the year! And now, let’s jump in and look at the contents:
Vitamasques Yoghurt Mask Duo – Kiwi and Strawberry
I can’t think of anything more “boho-skincare” than a mask made of natural, foodie ingredients. The kiwi mask is said to soften and revitalize, while the strawberry smooths and illuminates. I’m super excited to try these, as right now I only use two facial masks. I use this overnight mask every night, and this mud mask once every two weeks or so. A new yogurt mask would totally be a fun way to shake up my mask routine!
the Balm Cosmetics the Balm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow – Kuwakaribisha
I love anything that is the Balm. And this Balm Voyage eyeshadow is no different! Kuwakarisbisha is a pale-neutral shade, with quite a bit of shimmer. It has a total glow factor that reminds me of a highlighter. Apparently, the reason the Balm eyeshadows are so buttery and soft is because the pigments are triple-milled. They are so soft, that one dig of the finger into my eyeshadow pan resulted in the huge divot you see pictured above. Courtesy of my toddler! 🙂
Aurora Pro Cover Up Concealer – Pale Ecru
This one doesn’t immediately scream “boho” to me, but then again, neither does dark circles or hyper-pigmentation. I guess you could say this product is “under-cover boho.” ha! This is my second Aurora product from ipsy, as my first was a felt-tipped eyeliner in my December 2016 glam bag. In ipsy’s description of the product, they mention that this can be used as a highlight or even as a contour (not this shade) if it doesn’t match perfectly. I could definitely see this working as a highlight, especially since it is a full-coverage product.

Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo – Beaming and Tenderheart
I was floored when I saw this product in my ipsy bag. A coconut blush single is currently retailing at Ulta for $12.00, and my entire ipsy bag cost $10! So I’m looking at $24.00 worth of blush in my $10 ipsy bag, which so happened to contain 4 other products…SUCH A DEAL. Digression over. Since coconut is a main ingredient here, these blushes are not only beautiful, but also healthy for the skin. While they are intended for blush purposes, I will definitely be trying these as eyeshadows. The shades are too beautiful not to! Plus I think having an eye look that imitates a cheek look would be super beautiful, especially if both were worn at the same time. I’m pretty excited this arrived in my glam bag!
SLMissGlam Brush – T35 Precise Blending Brush
But…there is nothing I was more excited for in the August 2017 ipsy glam bag than THIS BRUSH. I received my first SLMissGlam brush in my November 2016 glam bag, the W20 Angled Eye Brush (in diamond white). Then, my sister gave me another W20 brush this past summer. So now, this is my third SLMissGlam brush and the excitement is making me think I should probably just invest in a complete set. I can’t put my finger on why I love them so much, but I feel like the faux diamonds are 98% of it. I think the bristles are soft and perfectly dense. The brushes hold up very well during cleaning, and I haven’t seen a single bristle come out! Unfortunately, I did stain on of my W20’s and haven’t been able to get the stain out. Doesn’t matter because they are still my favorite, stains and all!
