We got our IPSY bags for August 2017.  Things are insane at work for me, so I can’t figure out the prices right now, but will try to come back and update that later.

I am most excited about the Josie Maran foundation and the Derma E serum, as I have wanted to try both!

theBalm Cosmetics theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Kuwakaribisha

Ipsy Glam Bag August 2017

Why You’ll Love It

Kuwakaribisha

  • Our fave new way to get glowing: this pale peachy powder is super pigmented, shimmery but not sparkly, and is totally buildable (in case you want your highlight to be extra extra).
  • We apply this underneath our brow bones and at the inner corners of our eyes whenever we need to wake things up a lil bit (AKA every day).
  • Looking for a neutral eyeshadow to balance out cat eyes, cut creases, and all that fun stuff? Look no further.

How to Use It

Eye Makeup 101

Not sure what goes where? Check out this chart to become an eye makeup pro.

  1. Inner Corner Tap a light, shimmery shade here to brighten and make you look wide awake.

  2. Crease Add major definition by sweeping a neutral matte shadow in the hollow curve above your eyelid.

  3. Brow Bone Add highlighter (or pale shadow) just beneath your brows for an instant lift.

  4. Outer V Blend a darker shade here for even more lifting, defining, and fierceness.

  5. Waterline Intensify your eyes and make whites look crazy bright by tracing waterproof liner here.

  6. Lower Lashline Blend a neutral shade along and beneath your lower lashes to balance out your top lid and create a subtle smoky effect.

  7. Lid Last but not least: Sweep your fave shade across entire your lid. Make sure to blend!

AURORA Pro Cover Up Concealer in Pale Ecru, Balmy Beige, or Caramel Syrup

Ipsy Glam Bag August 2017

Why You’ll Love It

  • Pale Ecru, Caramel Syrup, and Balmy Beige are three of twelve fab shades from the line. If one doesn’t match perfectly as a concealer, it can work just as well as a highlighter or contour.
  • The formula goes on creamy for instant full coverage, and quickly turns matte for hours of budge-proof wear.
  • It blends in so seamlessly, you can wear it alone without foundation.

Ipsy Glam Bag August 2017

How to Use It

3 Ways to Get the Most Out of Your Concealer

1. Always use your ring finger to blend concealer beneath your eyes. Why that one? The skin around your eye is super delicate and your ring finger has the softest touch. (Same rule applies to eye cream BTW.)

2. Prime your lids with a teeny dab of concealer before applying eyeshadow. It will hide any discoloration on your lids, make your shadow look extra opaque, and keep it in place all day.

3. Use a touch of concealer and a flat, dense detail brush to make the edges of your lipstick or winged eyeliner extra crisp.

All sheered out the color is a very good match for me.

FORMULA 10.0.6 Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask

Ipsy Glam Bag August 2017

Why You’ll Love It

  • You’ll instantly feel the tingle of this clarifying mask as it sucks the gunk out of clogged pores. (We know: ew. But it’s awesome.)
  • It smells delightful. Think: fresh strawberries and herbs like rosemary.
  • There’s a reason that the OG mask ingredients of kaolin and bentonite clays have been around forever. They’re the best for removing impurities, and they come straight from nature!

How to Use It

 Apply a thin layer to cleansed face and neck, avoiding the eyes. Let dry for 10-15 minutes then rinse with warm water and pat dry. Use up to 3 times a week.

Steve Laurant Precision Tip Liner in Black

Ipsy Glam Bag August 2017

  • New brand alert! We are v. excited about Steve Laurant’s debut makeup collection, which includes a signature precision tip eyeliner.
  • Housed in the chicest, of-the-moment rose gold tube, this fine-tipped waterproof liner will ensure a rockin’ winged eye.
  • We tested it out during a recent summer day and the water-resistant formula held up like a champ. Makeup meltdown avoided!

How to Use It

Winged Liner Shortcut

1. Draw a short line from the outer edge of your eye angled up toward the end of your brow.

2. Connect the end of the line to the center of your lid, creating a skinny triangle shape.

3. Draw a thin line stretching from the inner corner of your lash line to the the triangle.

4. Fill in the large triangle.

5. Add mascara and you’re done!

6. Bonus: Clean up the edges using a dab of concealer on a small brush.

Clarria Cosmetics Tinted Primer in Light

Ipsy Glam Bag August 2017

Why You’ll Love It

  • You can’t paint a masterpiece without priming the canvas, right? TBH we’re not painters so we don’t know how all that works. But we do know that pores practically disappear once this tinted primer hits your skin.
  • Layer under foundation for the smoothest application ever or wear it alone for a dreamy, dewy look.
  • Light is a neutral beige. Toffee is a warm medium shade. Even if they don’t match exactly, they’ll still blend in once your foundation goes on. (Promise.)

How to Use It

3 Ways to Wear Primer

1. Makeup prep Pat—don’t rub—a small amount all over to create a smooth canvas for your foundation, soften fine lines, and even out your skin tone.

2. Lipstick booster Apply a pea-sized dab to freshly exfoliated lips before swiping on lipstick to make it last way longer.

3. Nix shine on the go If you get oily midday, apply a small amount along your t-zone to mattify.

Naked Cosmetics HD Finishing Translucent Powder

Ipsy Glam Bag August 2017

Why You’ll Love It

  • This finely milled powder is super lightweight so you’ll never look chalky or cakey.
  • We dusted it on before heading to ipsy HQ in the AM and our foundation looked mysteriously good all day. It definitely helps lengthen the wear of other makeup.
  • You can also wear it alone (just dust allover, no foundation needed) to quickly even things out, brighten, and tone down shine.

Ipsy Glam Bag August 2017

How to Use It

3 Ways to Lock in Your Look

1. After applying your complexion products, use a large fluffy powder brush to sweep the powder from hairline to decolletage.

2. Before you line your eyelids, use a firm eyeshadow brush to press an extra layer of translucent powder along your upper lashline. This creates the perfect base for pencil or liquid liner and will prevent smearing and fading.

3. Swipe on lipstick. Then grab a tissue (separate it first if it’s two ply—you’ll only need one), place it over your lips, and dust some more powder over your lips with the tissue as a barrier.

Hikari Cosmetics Shimmer Bronzer in Flush

Ipsy Glam Bag August 2017

Why You’ll Love It

  • It’s basically like getting five pigments in one. You can swirl your brush over the entire palette for a blend of sun-kissed shimmer, or concentrate on one of the four corners for a specific shade.
  • Depending on your skin tone, you can use it to highlight, contour, or allover for a faux post-vacay glow.
  • Apply to lids for a gorgeous bronzy eyeshadow, too!

How to Use It

Like highlighter, bronzer looks most at home when it’s on places where the sun would naturally hit. Think cheekbones, nose, forehead, chin, even collarbones. Play around and see what floats your boat!

Josie Maran Cosmetics Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation Fluid in Euphoric or Awakened

Ipsy Glam Bag August 2017

Why You’ll Love It

  • Like a skincare treatment and makeup in one, this foundation hydrates and treats with organic Argan Oil.
  • This versatile formula is totes buildable, so you can customize your coverage for any skin scenario.
  • Cruelty-free and without synthetic fragrances, parabens, and gluten, it’s ideal for sensitive skin. (Or anyone who prefers natural stuff.)

Ipsy Glam Bag August 2017

How to Use It

3 Ways to Apply Liquid Foundation

1: For full coverage, apply to face using a flat foundation brush. Start in the middle of your face in order to avoid noticeable makeup lines. Sweep out towards the temples using long strokes.

2: For medium coverage, use a buffing brush—the kind with a domed head and densely packed synthetic bristles for blending. Apply from the middle of the face using circular motions.

3: For sheer coverage, wet a beauty blender, then dip it in foundation. Press and roll the sponge over skin in a tapping bouncing motion.

The color match is pretty good for me.

SUGAR Cosmetics SUGAR Stroke Of Genius Heavy Duty Kohl – 01 Back To Black

Ipsy Glam Bag August 2017

Why You’ll Love It

  • If you’re looking for a softer way to rock eyeliner, we love the look and feel of SUGAR Cosmetics’ kohl pencil. Apply and then smudge to your heart’s content for a gorge customized look.
  • The creamy, wax-based formula glides on smoothly and stays put for up to 8 hours.

How to Use It

3 Ways to Use Pencil Liner

1. Sparse lashes? Tightline your upper waterline to create a fuller-looking fringe.

 2. Have trouble drawing a straight line (who doesn’t)? Draw little dots along your lash line, then connect them and magic—a smooth line.

3. Eyeliner won’t stay in your waterline? Start with a pencil liner, then top with a powder eyeshadow in a matching color for extra staying power.

DERMA E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum

Ipsy Glam Bag August 2017

Why You’ll Love It

  • Dry, uneven skin. Fine lines and wrinkles. You name it, this Vitamin C packed cure-all treats it.
  • It’s also jam-packed with hyaluronic acid, which helps to plump up your skin, boost collagen health, and protect from environmental damage.
  • You NEED to pack this for your mid-summer getaway. The little tube twists to close, so you won’t have any leaks in your luggage.

How to Use It

Give Yourself a Face Massage

They increase circulation for brighter, more youthful-looking skin (yes, please) and can also help lift and firm, and K.O. puffiness and wrinkles. Not to mention that it just feels pretty amazing.

1. Start with clean skin.

2. Dab on a light layer of facial oil or slippery serum for a smooth glide and no tugging.

3. Focus on the sides of your face, massaging in circles, pushing skin up and out, never down. Do this for one minute.

4. Focus on your eyes, sweeping your fingers from the outside of your eyes and temples in and up toward your forehead.

Tip: The skin around your eyes is supes delicate, so add a little more oil or serum here to prevent tugging.
