Ipsy August 2013 Glambag

I guess for all the Ipsters out there that are going back to school soon, this bag was made for you! Ipsy have themed this August's Ipsy Glambag "Glamour Academy".

The nice purple color of the bag actually matches my toe nail polish color! And it reminds me of the OPI by Selena Gomez "Pretty in Plum" nail polish they gave away last month as the bonus item! This will go in my Ipsy stash box for now until I do need a bag for travelling. Love how the quality of this bag feels pretty good and not flimsy at all.

Moving on to the items I received this month, first is this Michael Todd Pumpkin Nutrient-Rich Facial Mask
*click on the product names to see the discount code!

"The Pumpkin Nutrient-Rich Facial Mask is a nutrient rich mask that is blended with Pumpkin and Glycolic Acid. This rejuvinating facial treatment removes dead skin, impurities and toxins, moisturizes and firms, improves elasticity and pliability of the skin, unclogs pores allowing skin to breathe and facilitates movement of skin oils. Adds brightness and radiance to the skin and significantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. "

I am pretty excited to try this brand since I have been reading such great things about this skin care line! I was hoping to get the Jojoba Charcoal Gentle Exfoliating Facial Scrub which is one of the "or" item for this month, but I am still excited to try this out!
Since this is like doing an at-home chemical peel and I being already on a prescriptive retinoid cream and other acne meds, I really have to be careful of what I use on my face right now. I could check with my dermatologist but I couldn't wait last night to use it, so I just applied it on after I washed my face. Felt all the tingling sensation when I left it on for 3-5 minutes, and I can actually feel my skin is pretty soft and see it glowing! Like I just had a nice facial at a fancy spa! This morning, I don't see any allergic reaction or redness or any bad reaction to the mask, so I will use this again next week. Once a week for now.
It does look like mushed pumpkin with glycolic acid, hence the tingling. The scent on this mask makes you want to eat a pumpkin pie, so now I can't wait for pumpkin season and have a real pumpkin pie with whipped cream! 

Next is this loose pigment Mica Beauty Eye Shadow in Bronze. I just swatched this and OMG! I love this eye shadow! It's basically my skintone color, tan, but shimmery. I know this will look gorgeous just all over the lid for a simple eye look, especially when you are running late to your class!

The Pacifica Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream is another item in the bag which I am not thrilled about. I do love the Pacifica brand, you can actually read my review on this here: Pacifica Wanderlust Beauty Set Review. Not really excited to see this so this will go to my friend!

I am intrigued to try the Pixi Beauty Lash Booster Mascara in Blackest Black

"This unique mascara truly boosts your lashes, giving them a "push-up" effect that lasts all day. The dense, rich formula coats lashes with maximum pigment, for long-lasting full color and the cone-shaped brush coats each lash evenly. Long lasting, smudge-free and waterproof." 

If this will really keep my curl up and not smudge throughout the humid day, I will let you know. I have been looking around for a nice waterproof, smudge-free mascara and this claims all that, so I will definitely put this to the test!

Another product I am not really excited to get is this Noya Lip Balm in Cherry. But hey, a girl cannot have enough lip balm, right?!?

"The noya Lip Balm is a lightweight, all-natural formula that moisturizes, smooths, softens your lips and packs a full punch of flavor. And because it’s natural, you can lick your lips as much as you want – and trust us, you’ll want to often."

This will either go in my lip drawer or to my cousin as part of her little Going-To-College gift bag I am putting together *ssshh! So I have not really took it out of it's packaging.

And this month since two of YOU! My lovely awesome readers, used my referral code, I received this month's bonus item which is the Lime Crime Nail Polish in Crema de Limon! Again, thank you so much and hope you are enjoying you're Ipsy goodies!!!

I might add some nail art in a few days, I will post it on my Instagram: _j4ckie_ 

This polish is pastel yellow which is not something I would buy myself. After putting this on, I love how the yellow just pops and compliments my tanned skin!

Lime Crime is a cruelty-free and vegan so it's all made with great quality ingredients! They are known for their lip products which is in my beauty wish list, and their cute packaging, and that purple unicorn, OMG!
