What was in my August 2019 ipsy Glam Bag?

            This package got lost in the mail for almost a week which happens sometimes and it made it to my apartment okay so I can’t be upset that it went from Memphis, nothing for five days, and then it was at the post office in my city suddenly. 

            I love the bag design though, it looked black on the website and in some pictures but I am pleased to say that it is a dark hunter or forest green and it is giving me major mid-2000’s emo studded belt vibes which I love because that was my aesthetic during that time. Seriously I was a pre-teen and into my teenager years during that period so I approve. This is also my mother’s favorite bag of all of the Glam Bags I have gotten and she usually judges me for how many makeup bags I am now hoarding. (They are great for moving!) 

            So what did it get? 

            All of these thoughts are my own, per usual, I am just putting in full sized prices (if I can find them) in this one because it’s information for me as well as for you. 

Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Face Primer-Matte 

            This is a really small sample but it is K-beauty so I am hopeful that it won’t react with my skin. I like the simple packaging and it is a nice size to throw in a makeup bag fro after the gym or when you want to throw on a more natural makeup look while protecting your skin from some of the environmental elements. A full size is $20 on her website and it comes in matte and illuminating. 

Luxie Beauty Periwinkle Blending Brush 

            I got a Luxie brush in my September bag last year (It was my old format for posting photos so it will look different than my posts now.) Their brushes are really soft and actually according to the Luxie website I think this is part of the Dreamcatcher collection, you can no longer buy the single brush anymore but the rose gold in the same style (237) retails for $12. They have a nice selection of brushes on their website and I am always in the market for new good brushes. 

Papa Recipe Bombee Honey Moisture Cleansing Foam

            There is Korean on the front and usually to me (in my experience and opinion) that usually makes it a product that is great quality, it seems when it’s a K-Beauty brand it doesn’t seem to affect me in the same way that other cleansers do. A full size is $15 on their website and according to the website it has things like honey, sage, rosemary, and royal jelly extracts in it. Their webpage listing gives a lot of information on the product as well if you want to know more. 

Sol De Janeiro Coco Cabana Body Cream

            I already have this product and I love it! Sol De Janeiro has such a great product line and their scents are all amazing. This is such a cute little container and since I have the small size of the full size product I am really excited to use this for travel and refill it as necessary. The small regular size (75 ml.) retails for $20 on their website and the larger size (240 ml.) retails for $45. This size actually is available as well and it retails for $10. I love the scent already but they have recently improved the scent as well and I am so excited to smell the new and improved scent as well. 

Suva Beauty Eyeshadow in Tumeric

            According to the insert in the bag it is a cream/powder hybrid and I must say first of all, the color payoff is great and the shade itself is absolutely gorgeous. I cannot wait to actually put this in a look. It is a more orange gold not a yellow gold and it looks so nice. I wish I would have gotten this shade in like May because it is a very summer-centric color. This shade was in their eyeshadow palette called Saffron so you can’t buy a single pan eyeshadow pan of this one but their single shadow pans go for $11 and the Saffron palette (which is beautiful) retails for $35. I mean for the color pay off on one swatch that price point makes sense. 

            So I loved this bag, it has for sure been one of my favorites of the year because not only the products but the bag as well. If you want to read the rest of my Glam Bag unbaggings for the year you can click on the month and go and read them! January, February, March, April, May, June, and July

            I will see everyone during the week with another post!
