Ships to: US and CANADA

Now let’s take a look at the goodies inside my August Glam Bag:

August Ipsy Glam Bag Subscription Good Vibes Bag

Ipsy Glam Bag – August 2017 ‘Good Vibes Only’ Cosmetics Bag

The first item you see when you open the shimmery pink envelope from Ipsy is the cosmetics bag, which holds your month’s goodies inside. For the month of August 2017, there were 3 different makeup bag sayings and colours. I received the bag that I was hoping for! I love the statement “Good Vibes Only”, it makes you feel positive each time you read it. The picture doesn’t show it well, but it has a sparkly effect to the word vibes. I love the colours and ombre effect, the gold zipper pull gives it some bling and the inside has a fuschia pink liner.

August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag Good Vibes Only Insert

Ipsy Glam Bag – August 2017 ‘Good Vibes Only’ Insert

The insert tells you what to expect from your Ipsy membership, including: Ipsy Glam Bag, IpsyCare and Ipsy Shopper. Ipsy Glam Bag is the monthly subscription bag you’ll receive when you subscribe. IpsyCare offers 24/7 member support and guarantees your happiness. Ipsy Shopper is a newer offer for members to earn 10%-30% cash back on every single purchase. There’s over 20,000 beauty products from beauty brands like MAC, Smashbox and more. Plus Ipsy Shopper will provide personalized shopping recommendations too.

The Balm Voyage II Travel Shadow Ipsy Glam Bag August 2017

The Balm Voyage II Travel Eyeshadow Luminizer in Kuwakaribisha

The Balm Voyage II Travel Shadow is a small, super cute book style shadow palette which fits perfectly in a small cosmetics bag, purse or even a big wallet. There’s a concealed magnet inside the cover, so it stays closed while in travel. I love neutral eyeshadow shades, so it was a perfect match for my style. I couldn’t find the single Balm Voyage eyeshadow palette for sale online, except one on eBay that sold for $5 US (likely from an Ipsy Glam Bag). The full size palette can be purchased at The Balm Cosmetics.

Secret Key Nature Recipe Tea Tree Sheet Mask Ipsy August Glam Bag

Secret Key Nature Recipe Tea Tree Calming & Soothing Face Sheet Mask

The Secret Key Nature Recipe Tea Tree Calming & Soothing Face Sheet Maskis made with tea tree leaf extract. It helps calm the skin and provides soothing relief for redness and irritation. This face sheet mask helps to improve the skin’s radiance and improves the appearance of dull, tired skin. They sell for $3.64CAD at YesStyle, an authorized seller of Secret Key products.

Secret key Nature Recipe Honey Face Sheet Mask August Ispy Glam Bag

Secret Key Nature Recipe Honey Nutrition & Smooth Complexion Face Sheet Mask

The Secret Key Nature Recipe Honey Nutrition & Smooth Complexion Face Sheet Mask is rich in nutrients to revitalize and nourish your skin. It contains both honey and royal jelly extract to help enhance the skin’s elasticity and provide a healthier glow. They sell for $3.64CAD at YesStyle, an authorized seller of Secret Key products.

Crown Medium Face Contour Makeup Brush Ipsy August Glam Bag

Crown Medium Face Contour Makeup Brush

The Crown medium face contour makeup brush have indentations in the handle for precision control and comfortable handling. The bristles are made with synthetic materials, so you can rest assured knowing that no animals were harmed in the making of these brushes. The bristles are super soft and gentle on the skin. The Crown medium face Contour Brush can be used with both powder and cream contour products and provides medium to full coverage. This brush sells for $6.99 US at Crown Brush.

Steve Laurant Precision Eyeline Ispy Glam Bag August

Steve Laurant Precision Tip Eyeliner in Black

The Steve Laurant Precision Tip Eyeliner in black comes housed in a gorgeous rose gold tube (it was tough getting a good pic, with all that ship). It has a fine precision tip which is ideal for creating the iconic winged eye look. And it has a water resistant formula, so you won’t have to worry about runny makeup on hot, humid summer days. This precision tip eyeliner sells for $24 US at Steve Laurant.

Paula Dorf Universal Eye Brow Pencil Ipsy Glam Bag August

Paula Dorf Cosmetics Mini Universal Eye Brow Pencil in Taupe

Paula Dorf Cosmetics Mini Universal Eye Brow Pencil in taupe colour is the perfect size to carry in your purse. The formula of this pencil is very blendable which is the key to creating natural looking filled brows. I’ve seen this selling online for $8 US at Poshmark but unfortunately they do not ship to Canada. I haven’t located a Canadian retailer online yet which sells this but will update if I do.

What I Think of Ipsy Glam Bags

The August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag is valued well over the price I paid, even with the US exchange rate. The makeup bag is perfect for me; I love the bright colours and the positive message ‘Good Vibes Only’. The selection of makeup and beauty items that the Ipsy staff selected for me are a pretty good match, however, I don’t really glam up my brows. My favourite items are the contour brush (because I am building my collection of makeup brushes) and the face masks (because I love treating my skin with masks and I’ve never tried these before). The makeup bag will get put to good use too! I plan to keep and use all of the items in the August Glam Bag and I’ll even give the brow pencil a try. Why not, at least I can say I’ve done that before! I’m looking forward to what Ipsy send me in September. I love receiving surprises like these.

Bonuses for Ipsy Members

Once you’ve tried the products in your Glam Bag, you can review them on Ipsy to help the Ipsy staff customize your next Glam Bag. Plus completing the surveys provides Ipsy members with points, which can be turned into bonus items in a future Glam Bag. This is the time to communicate to Ipsy whether you love, like or dislike the products that you received, so they can customize your Glam Bag with products that you will use.

Another great feature of Ipsy is they host lots of giveaways every month. This month they even have the chance to win a year of free Glam Bags. The giveaways are open to US and Canada, 18+, however, you must have an Instagram account with a public profile to enter.

Plus if you want to purchase makeup and beauty items from the brands you’ve received in your monthly Glam Bag, Ipsy has negotiated discounts for their members and there are brand offers too. The offers are only available for a limited time, so check the offers tab at your Ipsy page each month for new discounts and deals.

And rest assured, if your beauty preferences ever change, you can simply complete the beauty profile questionnaire again to let Ipsy know what products you love most!

Enter to WIN IT!

I am giving one of my readers the chance to try Ipsy for free for one month. Because you must setup your beauty and makeup profile at Ipsy, I will be awarding the prize in PayPal funds. The winner will receive a $20 CAD PayPal deposit, to cover the Ipsy Glam Bag membership cost for one month.

Rules:

  • Open to Canada, including Quebec and US
  • Must be 18+
  • The giveaway ends September 20, 2017

      I wish shipping was free in Canada too Jessica. I was impressed that one product alone exceeded the price paid. I certainly hope they continue that trend.

    No. I haven’t tried Ipsy before. But I did use a beauty subscription before – a long long time ago. I think it was called World of Beauty and I believe it was based out of Malton.

    I have never tried ipsy before but have wanted to and seen photos of the products, it looks great!
    I have tried boxycharm and Glossybox but only with the deals for a period of time since it’s very expensive to get it here in canada plus the shipping costs. Thank you so much for the opportunity to be able to enter and try this wonderful subscription!
