Subscription Addiction | Ipsy August 2015 Glam Bag

My Ipsy August Glam Bag just came in today (8/12) and it shipped on 8/5, so 7 day shipping time, not too bad. The theme for this bag is Prep School since it's almost time for back-to-school! The bag this month seems to be made of plastic instead of cloth so I'm a little skeptical on how durable it is but it has an embossed cube pattern on it and the herringbone pattern is very nice.

Marc Anthony Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco Oil Treatment 20.7 mL/0.7 fl. oz ($3.31) - The scent reminds me of cool cucumber. I love hair oils and this one seems strong and hydrating for my dry ends but light in texture and weight so it doesn't bring down my volume.

Skone Cosmetics Luxe Double Eye/Lip Pencil in Wine ($12) - I don't own too many different colored eye pencils besides black and brown so this wine color will be a change for me and I am ready to experiment. The color is very pretty, wine/burgundy are my favorite autumn colors.

noyah Natural Lipstick in Desert Rose 1.4 g ($5.60) - Desert rose is a fitting name for this color, it's a kind of muted pink. Glides on smooth and creamy. Other colors: valentine pink, empire red, apricot swirl, hazelnut cream.

Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk

Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk 15 mL/0.5 fl. oz. ($1.65) - I've recently decided to overhaul my entire skincare routine starting with my cleanser. I've been breaking out more than usual so something must be wrong. Anyways, this cleansing milk will be a good first start, I like how the ingredients are organic. Hopefully they'll work with my sensitive skin.

AILA Cosmetics Luxury Nail Lacquer in Mister Pookies 14.8 mL/0.5 fl. oz. ($17) - Online this polish looked like a dark grey color so I am happy to report it is actually a dark mauve in person! The website has the best picture of what the color actually looks like and it is described as steel grey with purple undertones which I believe is pretty accurate. I love love love nail polishes and this one helps build out my collection since I do not have any similar colors.

Overall Value: $39.56 Rating: 5/5

I'm very happy with the selection of products I received in this glam bag, I'm planning on using them all. The colors were on point too, they get me excited for fall!
