August Glam Bag First Look

So I'm excited to say I got my first Ipsy bag today! I'm even more excited about this because looking at the Website I wasn't supposed to get a bag until next month but for whatever reason I got one early :)

Here's a look inside my bag and I have to say for ten dollars I'm pretty happy. 

First of all I got Trust Frund Beauty nail polish in Elegantly Wasted. I'm almost positive I have a dupe of this color somewhere in my collection but this is a new brand for me so I won't complain. This retails at $15 so right there I got more than my money's worth.

Next to my love of nail polish is my love of lip gloss so I was ecstatic Hikari Merlot was included in my bag. Just from the packaging this reminded me of a Julep lip gloss I have and don't use much. I was very surprised by how thick and creamy this is. It actually makes me think of like a creamy lip stick instead of a gloss if that makes sense. Fortunately I'm one of the people who can pull off wearing berry lip colors. This retails for $13.

 I also swatched my Starlooks Pro Luxe Longwear eyeliner pen. In my opinion it's just too hot and yucky right now to be wearing makeup so I'll probably wait awhile before actually using this. Just from the line I drew on my hand I can say it handled nice and smoothly and I was impressed by how fine the line came out. This retails for $19.

I also received the Briogeo Blossom and Bloom gingseng and biotin volumizer and the Lather ultra mild face wash. I'm definitely not a fan of gingseng scents but  I look forward to seeing how my hair deals with this. I'm probably least thrilled with the face wash simply because I usually just use plain old bar soap to wash my face, nothing fancy here. But I still feel like it's an Ok addition to my bag. The volumizer retails at $18 for five ounces but I only got one ounce so we'll just call it worth $3.53. Again the face wash sells at $19 for 6 ounces but I got one ounce so let's call it $3.17.

So by estimation I received $53.70 worth of products for just $10. Not too bad at all!
