Today I need to tell you about how much ipsycare rocks! ipsycare is the customer service email for ipsy that you use to report any problems with your subscription or bag.
This month, I had redeemed my ipsy points for a Real TECHniques concealer brush so I knew my bag would be a little later than usual. I love the brush which is valued at $8. I patiently waited to receive my bag however, when it arrived, it was quite obvious that I did not receive the items shown in my glam room sneak peek. I was a bit bummed that because of this I would not get any ipsy points this month because you only get points for the items you receive. I emailed customer care in hopes of getting the points I would have earned and they did me one better. They sent me the bag I was supposed to received at no charge! That is how I ended up with 2 August Glambags. How cute is the design of the bag this month? It is plastic on the outside and I love the pink interior.
First off, I will show you bag #1 – the “wrong” bag that I LOVE!
Nail polish in “MISTER POOKIES”
I love this shade. It is a shade of what I would call midnight purple. It looks almost black at first but lightens as it dries. It does require two coats for full coverage.
FULL SIZE Value $17
Luxe Longwear Eyeliner Pen in Black
I am always iffy on liquid eyeliner pens but this one is terrific. The tip is versatile enough to create thin or thicker lines.
FULL SIZE Value $19
Marc Anthony Argan Oil
This is a really nice oil that is easy to apply, just a couple drops onto towel dried hair. It leaves my hair feeling soft and smooth without feeling oily.
ecobeauty Good Night Night Cream
I received the day cream in a previous ipsy bag and loved it so I was really happy to receive the night cream. It has a light non-greasy formula that really moisturizes and there is no scent to it.
HIKARI lip gloss in Merlot
This was my favourite item in the bag! I love the shade of this gloss, it is dark and well pigmented but not too dark for this ginger! The formula is thick and stays on without being too sticky.
FULL SIZE Value $13
Total Bag Value for Bag 1 with 3 FULL SIZE items: $63 + $8 for the brush
Here is what was in Bag #2 – the one I was supposed to receive:
Luxe Doubler Eye & Lip Crayon in Wine
The colour of this liner is gorgeous. It is actually a perfect compliment to the Hiakri gloss I received in the other bag. It will also be a fun eye liner for me since I have green eyes and like to experiment with colours.
FULL SIZE value $12
Noyah lipstick in Desert Rose
This has to be the cutest mini lipstick I have received. I love the soft pink shade, desert rose is the perfect name for it. The formula is nice and soft and it stays on well.
JUARA Tumeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask
I was excited to see I was getting this in my sneak peek as I love a face mask so when I saw I got the wrong bag, I ordered it with my ipsy points so I will now have it twice! I am looking forward to trying it out.
Briogeo Blossom & Bloom
Volumizing Blow Dry Spray
I love the smell of this. It really does add volume when heat styling. I love this because often I find my hair feeling a little flat when heat styling.
TRUST FUND BEAUTY polish in Elegantly Wasted
I love the shade of this polish and I was most disappointed when I thought I was not going to receive this. Unfortunately, the formula is not a creme as I thought and requires a minimum 3 coats for full coverage but oh that shade!
FULL SIZE Value $15
Total Value of Bag 2 with 2 FULL SIZE samples: $39.30
I am so impressed with ipsy. They really do care about their customers. I received a quick response and had my bag within days. They consistently provide me with samples that are relevant to me and are brands I would buy.
