Ipsy Glam Bag Review-August 2018

For spanish version, click here.

Hey there! Welcome back to yet another Ipsy Glam Bag post.  For those of you that don’t know what’s Ipsy, it is a monthly $10 subscription of 5 samples (makeup, skin care, hair care).  The samples come inside a beautiful makeup bag that varies in style and color according to the theme of the month.  The samples are chosen to cater your preferences as stated in a quiz taken when you subscribe.  Want to know what I got?  Well, keep reading then.

The first thing was the Cryo Activating Hydra Gel from 111SKIN.  This moisturizer says to protect your skin, plump it up and look “lit-from-within”.  Its gel formula is quickly absorbed by the skin and left my face feeling somewhat tacky.  Have used it a few times and this moisturizer didn’t impressed me.  I mean, it felt good on my skin, but it wasn’t out of this world.

Next, I got a Mineral Face SPF 30 Rosilliance BB+ Cream from COOLA in the shade Golden.  This product is supposed to even out the skin tone and “brighten up dark spots”.  Its formula is so sheer that it didn’t cover or even out anything.  Also, left my skin feeling extra sticky and looking like an oil mess at the end of the day.  As for helping with dark spots, I can’t really say if it does because I haven’t noticed anything.

Another makeup product was the Glow-To Highlighter from Ciaté London in Moondust.  In the pan looks pinker than in the face (looks more silvery-white).  It’s blendable and very shimmery.  But has a lot of fallout (it’s powdery), it always leaves shimmery particles all over my face.


The last makeup product included in this bag is a Lipgasm Lipgloss from Trust Fund Beauty in the shade Text Me.  It’s a peachy shade that look really shimmery, but it doesn’t have a sticky formula.  I don’t use it much because of the glitter.  Also, the smell and taste aren’t great.

Finally, we have the Instant Health Hair Treatment from the brand 12 Benefits.  Is a cream-like product that has a great scent.  This product basically says is going to leave your hair looking A-MA-ZING.  Sadly, I didn’t feel it did that for me, it was fine but nothing miraculous.  The product never made it through the sprayer, I had to unscrew the cap to get it out.  That could be because it is a cream product, or the packaging was defective.

Overall, this month’s bag wasn’t my favorite.  Most products didn’t work for me or they weren’t impressing enough.  Let’s hope September’s bag makes up for it.
