Ipsy Glam Bag | July 2015

Last week I received my July Ipsy Glam Bag. What is that you ask?


Ipsy Glam Bag is a monthly beauty subscription bag for $10/month. Each month you’ll get 4 – 5 samples in a cute little cosmetic bag.

Here’s what I got this month:


  • Jersey Shore Sun Mongongo Nutrient Dense Anti-aging Lip Conditioner – Vanilla Coconut Cream (yuck :-X )
  • Jor’el Parker Classico (perfume?)
  • Bellapierre Cosmetics Lipstick – P.I.N.K.
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer – Park Ave Princess
  • Eyetini Swizzle Stick Eyeliner – Blue Hawaiian

Unfortunately, the card included didn’t have the products and values listed, which is kind of annoying, but whatever.


I wasn’t that impressed with this month’s bag, but the Tarte bronzer itself made it worth the $10. I have this bronzer already but it would make a nice gift for someone.

Normally there is a long waitlist to sign up to receive the monthly Glam Bag. It took approximately two months for me to be able to sign up because it was in such high demand. Once you sign up though, you’ll receive it monthly as long as you don’t cancel. I received an email yesterday that for a limited time there is no waitlist to sign up. You can sign up here. I believe there is only one day left on this no-waitlist offer.

What did you guys get in your Glam Bag this month?

How about another flash giveaway?

You guys have been so amazing the past few days, checking in on me and being really patient through my car accident recovery and my dead computer. I really wanted to do something to show my appreciation so I knew it was time for flash giveaway #3!

One winner will receive a full size Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara (one of my fav mascaras) and three pairs of my favorite falsies, Ardell Glamour Wispies.


To enter, just comment what your favorite mascara is. BEFORE you leave your comment, be sure to read the giveaway rules here. As a refresher, you need to be subscribed to my blog AND my youtube channel.

Also, please share this post on social media if you can. The goal of these flash giveaways is to bring more awareness to this blog. I want to continue doing these kinds of things but I need your support! It’s not required to do this but it will be good karma for you! 🙂

This giveaway ends Thursday, July 23 at 10 a.m. EST. Winner will be contacted within 72 hours after giveaway closes. I’ll also update this post with the winner after I’ve gotten in touch with them.

Good luck everyone and thanks again for all the love the past couple of days.


Life happens.

    I loved the actual bag more than my products this month, but I still feel it was worth my $10. My favorite mascara I actually found because of Ipsy! I fell in love with Urban Decay Perversion. I also really like Tarte Gifted and Benefit They’re real.

  • July 21, 2015 at 6:40 pm

    My favourite mascara is the Clinique Lash Power Mascara because it’s so light and makes your lashes look lovely and fluttery instead of clumpy 🙂

  • July 21, 2015 at 6:41 pm

    I like the way your Ipsy bag looks, that lipstick looks really pretty! I’m glad you’ve recovered from your accidents, and it’s so sweet of you to keep is updated.

    I’m glad you’re well enough to start blogging.
    My favorite mascara would have to be the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+

    It may be uncommon? But I love the 3D Fiber Lashes from Younique. You can add as many layers as you want and they are closest to false lashes as I have ever found/used. They are very easy to apply and remove.

    So sorry you have had a rough couple of days, glad you are back though!
