Welcome back to another monthly Full Face Review using my August glam bag.

August Ipsy Glam Bag
This month's products:
Labotica: Honey & Bamboo Skin Soft Mask Set
Glamour Dolls: Romantic Blending Brush
theBalm Cosmetics: theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Kuwakaribisha 
Make Up For Ever: Excessive Lash Arresting Volume Mascara
Hey Honey: Come Clean: Propolis & Mineral Facial Scrub
 Peace Love & Lipstick

To begin with I had just shower and every time I jump out the shower I have the driest skin ever. Its so bad that I have to moisturize as soon as I'm out.

Since I need some moisturizer I used Labotica: Bamboo Skin Soft Mask. The Bamboo mask is for deep skin moisturizing and let me tell you it did its job. 

Ah, I'm sorry but I thought my skin looked amazing and it was glowing AND of course moisturized. It said to leave on for 10-20 minutes, but I always do in between, so I left it on for 15 minutes and I patted in the left off serum and it looked pretty good. 

Like always I continue to the makeup segment of my Full Face Reviews. At this point, I had my foundation, concealer and eyebrows done. I used one of my palettes to use a transition color. I was surprised how much product the Glamour Dolls: Romantic Blending Brush picked up. 

I blended out the eyeshadow, but I was not impressed.

The first picture is the theBalm Cosmetics: theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Kuwakaribisha swatched. My first impressions was that it was so light; meaning it could easily be a highlight instead of eyeshadow. In case you are wondering, No I did not read the instructions or anything about it. So I applied it all over my lid. And well I was somewhat disappointed, so I went a little crazy and applied it on my eyebrow done for some highlight. 

To finalize my eyes I added Make Up For Ever: Excessive Lash Arresting Volume Mascara.  

This was the overall look with all the products except one...

So on the first picture I had to take off my makeup and on the second picture I used Hey Honey: Come Clean: Propolis & Mineral Facial Scrub. 


Labotica: Honey & Bamboo Skin Soft Mask Set || So I ended up using the Bamboo Skin Soft Mask and its purpose was too moisture the skin. The Bamboo did exactly what it claim. When I first opened it I realized that it had a lot of serum; which is always a good thing. Once
 I put it on it smelled like the standard hand soap. But in honest, once I took off the mask but skin was glowing! I thought the mask did such a good job. The mask did its job in moisturizing! 
Glamour Dolls: Romantic Blending Brush || In our blending eyeshadow trial I was not impressed. I felt like the brush picked up a good amount of the product and it did blend out, but it was not the best thing. Did it do its job? Yes. Is it my favorite blending brush? No. 
theBalm Cosmetics: theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Kuwakaribisha || Off the bat I did not like it, but my opinion changed. I read eyeshadow, so what I tried doing was applying it over the eyelid. Biggest mistake. I ended up going on to Ipsy's how to and well I felt so dumb. This eyeshadow is not meant for an over the lid color. So I ended up applying it to the under the brow bone. And it was so much better! 
Make Up For Ever: Excessive Lash Arresting Volume Mascara || I love receiving mascaras, so I was excited to try it on. Once I started applying it, I could tell a difference on how it was giving my lashes volume. What I also like was how black it was and the fact that it did not clump my eyelashes together. But unfortunately its not waterproof. My eyes tend to get watery once I step outside and I had mascara coming out of my eye, but other than that it. Two thumbs up. 
Hey Honey: Come Clean: Propolis & Mineral Facial Scrub || Omg. Can I just say it tastes and feels nasty. It tasted like so much sweat and I felt like the greasiest thing ever. BUT it did do its job, haha. So they scrub claims to: minimize pores, hydrate and brightens up the skin. I did see the first two except brightens up the skin.
 Peace Love & Lipstick || This month they had three different Ipsy bags. I received the Peace Love & Lipstick one and I was happy because I love lipsticks, so I felt like it was right.  

Overall August Ipsy Glam Bag? 4/5

Thank you for reading yet another Full Face Review. Stay tune for more to come.

  1. I am so bummed I didn't get that mask! I swear I feel like I haven't been receiving any masks in my ipsy bag. 😫 I got that Hey Honey facial scrub and I normally like their products but now I'm second guessing this scrub. I need to smell it, I hate weird smelling products.

    1. I'm loving these masks! Try out the scrub and let me know how you like it!
