Ipsy July 2018 Glam Bag


Hey guys! Here is the variation I received of the Ipsy July 2018 Glam Bag. Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription that costs $10.00 per month with free shipping within the US and includes 5 sample to full size products. The products range from makeup, skincare, hair care and makeup tools. Active members can earn points to use in the points store by reviewing their full Glam Bag, reviewing the individual products in their bag, following the Ipsy Creators on Twitter and YouTube, and by referring people to Ispy. Members also get access to Ipsy Offers which are promotions they feature every weekday to help their members discover beauty products and deals from brands that Ipsy loves. Ipsy Shopper is another great perk of membership that allows you to earn cash back on purchases that are made through the Ipsy Shopper store. If you are interested in subscribing to Ipsy please consider using my referral link at the end of this post. Thanks!

Now, let’s talk about the products!


Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Peppermint Oil Cooling Jelly Conditioner



First off is the Briogeo scalp revival charcoal + peppermint oil cooling jelly conditioner. This hair conditioner is unique in that it is in the form of a jelly. The blend of peppermint oil, tea tree oil, and spearmint oil helps to relieve the itchiness from dry scalp while the Binchotan charcoal soaks up impurities that cause buildup on the hair and scalp. It is free of phthalates, silicones, sulfates, paraben, DEA and artificial dyes. This conditioner is also safe for color treated, keratin treated, chemically-treated and relaxed hair. It also smells amazing!

Value of sample: $4.50 for 1oz

Retail price for full size: $36.00 for 8oz

Vegan?: Yes

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Flawless Finish Dual Powder in the shade C3


Next is the Manna Kadar Cosmetics flawless finish dual powder in the shade C3. This powder can be used by itself as a medium coverage face powder or to set your makeup. A damp sponge can be used to attain a more full coverage look. The pressed powder is soft to the touch and goes on smoothly.

Retail price for full size: $34.00 for .33oz/9.35g

La Beaute Fatale Lipware in Vibrate


The La Beaute Fatale Lipware in Vibrate is a creamy and pigmented hot magenta lipstick that is hypo-allergenic, cruelty-free and non-comedogenic. It is enriched with vitamin E to moisturize the lips and has vanillian extract that gives it a light vanilla scent.

Retail price for full size: $28.00

H2O+ Beauty Oasis Ultra Hydrating Cream



The H2O+ Beauty oasis ultra hydrating cream is a “water-gel” cream moisturizer that is geared toward dry and extra dry skin. It absorbs rapidly into the skin and hydrates the skin for 24 hours. The key ingredients in this cream are a hydrating active blend, illuminating pigments, water lily extract and sea grass extract. This moisturizer seems like it would work well in the Winter months when skin is most prone to dryness. The tube says it can be used in the morning and night as well as when the elements leave your skin feeling dry.

Value: About $8.23 for .34oz/10mL

Retail price for full size: $42.00 for 1.7 Fl oz

Vegan?: H2O+ Beauty’s website says while most of H2O+ Beauty products are vegan-friendly, they recommend reviewing the ingredients list on the packaging to see if there are any ingredients you don’t want in your skin care product.

Cruelty free?: Yes


Ofra Cosmetics eyeshadow in the shade Syrup



Ipsy included a full size eyeshadow from Ofra Cosmetics. I received the shade Syrup which is a golden amber with a metallic finish. It is a really good size at 4g and works with magnetic palettes. It swatches well and the pigmentation is definitely there. I’m looking forward to using this shadow with a wet brush and seeing just how intense this shadow can get.

Value: Same as retail price

Retail price for full size: $15.00 for 4g

Vegan?: Yes

Cruelty free?: Yes


The total value of my bag this month is $65.33! For $10 that is a pretty good deal!

Next up is going to be my review on the July 2018 Liveglam brush subscription.
