"Glamour Academy" Ipsy's 2013 August Glam Bag

Monday, August 26, 2013

Hey ladies,

This months Ipsy glam bag was called Glamour Academy. It featured products from brands like Urban Decay, Michael Todd, Pixie, Mica Beauty, Pacifica, Smashbox, Chella, City Color, NYX, Noya, and Nailtini. Out of all these brands, we got 5 products based on our personal Ipsy quiz. The products were either a lipstick, lip balm, mascara, eyebrow pencil, cheek stain, nail polish, eyeshadow, facial scrub/mask, or blush. I was fortunate enough to get products from Urban Decay, Michael Todd, Pixie, Mica Beauty, and Pacifica.

The first product I got was the revolution lipstick by Urban Decay in the color Anarchy. It's a creamy lipstick but way too bright for my preference. Preferably a product that I would use if I was going to a night time party or club. It's very small and travel sized. Pretty moisturizing to the lips as well. 

The second product I got was this Pixie lash booster mascara in darkest black. I really like this mascara, it gives you a good even distribution without causing a lot of clumps. It makes my eyelashes more longer than giving it volume. Definitely a product that you can build up to achieve the lashes you desire. It's also a travel size. 

The next product was a Mica Beauty eyeshadow in the color Bronze. To get the color to pop more, I would use a nice eye primer or maybe even a lighter brown shade. You can get a nice brown smokey eye with a little bit of glam using this product. It lasts pretty well and is easy blendable if you don't want too much shimmer. 

Probably my favorite product ever from this months bag is this Michael Todd jojoba charcoal facial scrub. Yes, it is black because of the charcoal. When using this product, you want to gently rub it into your face, not too much though and if you let it sit for a few minutes, it's like you can feel it working on your face. I love it, sometimes I just want to keep it on my face for a while but after rinsing your face feels nice and soft. 

Last but not least, I got Pacifica's multi-mineral BB cream. It feels pretty light and gives good coverage. I can't say how good it is though because I don't really get break outs or anything. It gives enough coverage to make your skin tone even but also if you have beauty marks, you'll still be able to see them. 

This was what I got from my bag that was personalized for me.
