Ipsy teamed up with quite a few brands for their August 2013 bag:
This months theme was Glamour Academy. The bag was purple with gold Ipsy emblems:
(My daughter got into it hence the tiny indents)
My bag this month contained products from NOYA, Pixi, Pacifica, Michael Todd, and NYX:
NOYA kosher lip balm in Vanilla (value, $3.99):
Michael Todd true organically JoJoBa Charcoal Facial Scrub (1fl oz, value $5)
I was a little surprised that it's actually black:
.... but it does have charcoal in it. I plan to use this. (Full-size 3.4fl oz, $18)
Pixi Lash Booster mascara in Blackest Black (value $7):
Pacifica Alight mutli-mineral BB cream (.34fl oz, value $7):
I love BB creams and am so happy to have got this! The tube says it has shade-matching technology.
NYX Powder Blush in Copper (full size, value $5):
Honestly I'm not to pleased with the color for a blush. I mean, who uses COPPER for a blush?😱
All-in-all I am pleased with Ipsy, as usual. The total value for my bag this month was about $30. Not too bad.
(ETA: I'm not 100% sure of the value of each sample this month, I just looked at others blogs and seen what they valued them at. I will update this if needed when I'm on my PC)
