IPSY August Glam Bag 2016

This months theme is Sugar Highness.  What in the heck is Sugar Highness?  The card says:  Pop the champagne cans.  Deck yourself in ring pops.  Get gorgeously slammed up and dip into everyday decadence-gone wildly galore.

Did that clear it up?  No?  I didn’t think so.

Well who cares, I like getting this each month and I like sharing it with you!

Let’s get into it!

The bag was designed by Michelle Phan – “to inspire the dreamer in all of us”, I kind of like it.

This Brand’s the Bomb

Fiercely real. Co-founder Jamie Kern has had every beauty issue in the book. From rosacea to acne, from under-eye circles to limp lashes, sparse brows and dry lips. She puts her heart into every product she creates with the help of leading plastic surgeons. The result? Problem-solving color cosmetics and skincare that let us be our most beautiful. It’s a confidence-first philosophy we celebrate at ipsy.

My Thoughts

I love IT Cosmetics, it is one of my favorite brands.  Eye liner, however isn’t one of my favorite products – I love their foundations, CC Cream, Brow pencil, and tight-line mascara.  I will give it a try, but doubt black would be the way to ease into wearing eye liner!  I don’t see a discount code either!   Buy IT (it haha) here.

Value

Full size is $22 and .017 ounces.  This sample is .012 oz.  Value: $15.53
