Ipsy August 2017 Review

Ipsy Reviews August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

Ipsy August 2017 bag was a wonderful bag surprisingly.

Overall, it was a good balance of products, most of which are from well-known brands.

As for the Ipsy bag design, I thought it was cute, and it actually matched Ipsy’s bag theme this month.

In fact, it will be a nice bag for repurposing. On another note, this month I discovered Ipsy Sample Options, which is a pretty cool concept.

Ipsy Sample Options

Ipsy allows you to select a product you really want to sample. It’s relatively new to me.

All you need to do is let them know what product you would like to sample from the list by emailing them by the 28th of each month.

I started using this option (sample of choice) in July, and I am happy with the idea.

Most times if I receive a product I really want to try, I am happy even if the other products suck.

Thus, overall this is a good way to sample something you want to buy, but you’re unsure about the quality.

Anyway, on to the August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag review.

Ipsy Bag Design

The bag design represented the theme well.

I think it would be a great makeup bag – it’s colorful and bigger enough to hold a decent amount of makeup.

Moreover, it looks like it would be easy to clean if you accidentally spilled some foundation on it also the short positive message printed on the bags was a nice touch.

Ipsy Bag Theme

So Ipsy bag theme for August was Good Vibes Only.

I liked the general idea of the theme – it’s all about good vibes and being positive, so Ipsy bag theme resonated with me.

Ipsy Reviews August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag | Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay by First Aid Beauty | Chiclypoised | Chiclypoised.com

Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay by First Aid Beauty


  • Contains red clay – a powerhouse ingredient.
  • Skin will feel squeaky clean, but not stripped.
  • The gel turns into foam, removing makeup, dirt, and oil.
  • No artificial colorants, or fragrances, but it smells great due to rosemary oil.


Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay by First Aid Beauty was my Ipsy sample choice for my August Ipsy bag.

I really wanted to try it out because of the rave on Sephora.

However, after trying it, I think it is just okay – I did not think it was groundbreaking based on my experience.

This cleanser smells like a minty candy, which isn’t a bad thing unless you dislike the smell of mint.

I did not experience any excessive drying of the skin, so that is a plus.

However, it does not lather up enough. Since I have extremely oily skin I prefer using cleansers that lather up a lot to give me the deep clean I need especially when I wear a full coverage makeup look.

Overall, I think it is a good everyday cleanser for those who rarely or barely wear makeup.

SS035 Medium Face Contour Brush by Crown Brush


  • The synthetic bristles are insanely soft.
  • It holds onto the product, which makes the application way more precise and less messy.
  • The brush can be used for blush, contour, highlight, foundation, setting, and more.


The bristles are soft. I haven’t used the brush as yet, but from observation it’s the perfect size for contouring, highlighting, or adding blush to the apples of the checks.

Ipsy Reviews August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag | Black Magic Mascara Deluxe by Eyeko | Chiclypoised | Chiclypoised.com

Black Magic Mascara Deluxe by Eyeko


  • Cruelty-free mascara.
  • This water-resistant mascara.
  • Comes in a squeeze tube packaging means less waste.
  • Conditions your lashes with keratin and shea butter it contains.
  • The curvy brush grabs onto every lash and curls even the straightest lashes.


This mascara is good. I really like the squeezy tube – that is a great packaging idea.

Now I can cut the tube to get every bit of the product out when the product starts to run out. Moreover, the formula is good – it is jet black, it dries quickly and lashes are soft after application.

The mascara is also water-resistant, and I didn’t experience clumping or flaking. It added length to my eyelashes, but not a lot of volume.

The brush is wonderful – it was easy to apply mascara to the root of my eyelashes. This product retails for $26.00 for 0.29 oz.

Overall, it’s a good mascara for adding length but not volume, so that’s a pass for me.

Ipsy Reviews August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag | Nourishing Coconut Milk Face Lotion with Hibiscus by Promise Organic | Chiclypoised | Chiclypoised.com

Nourishing Coconut Milk Face Lotion with Hibiscus by Promise Organic


  • Conditions skin.
  • Leaves us looking lustrous.
  • Improves texture and blurs fine lines.
  • Won’t irritate skin – dermatologists tested.


The face cream smells good, it absorbs in the skin really quickly, it’s non-greasy, leaves the skin soft, and gets the skin ready for applying foundation.

It definitely helps with my dry patches, but as for blurring fine lines … I don’t think so.

Products retail for $14.99 for 1.7 oz. – pricey, so in the meantime, I will sparsely use the 0.5 oz. sample.

Ipsy Reviews August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag | Nail Polish in No. 28 by Sundays | Chiclypoised | Chiclypoised.com

Nail Polish in No. 28 by Sundays


  • Shiny lacquer finish.
  • Toxic-free nail polish.
  • Cruelty-free nail polish.
  • Curated color selection.


I was really hoping to receive color No. 7, but that was not the case, but color No. 28 is a perfect color for the fall, so I will live.

The formula dries quickly into a shiny finish.

The nail polish didn’t chip for the first three days, so that was great.

If a topcoat was added, nail polish would have probably lasted longer without chipping.

The polish currently retails for $18.00 a bottle – that’s pricey. Overall, the nail polish, but I don’t know about the price.

Fortunately, I received a full-size bottle, so I will make do.

So here you have it, guys. August bag was a great bag. I got the mascara, full-size nail polish, and a brush I can’t complain at all about the August Ipsy glam bag.

Thumbs up to Ipsy.
