Ipsy: August 2013 Glam Bag Sneak Peeks!

Monday, July 29, 2013

Here we go folks! Spoiler time for Ipsy's August Glam Bag!

First let me start with the August referral items.
July 29, 2013

Those who refer at least two people in August will get either an Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow OR Lime Crime nail polish in Crema de Limon.

Now that we know Lime Crime is working with Ipsy it's HIGHLY possible we'll see MORE Lime Crime products in this month's bag or in near future bags. Personally I hope we get Zodiac glitters, Shadow Helper or even Lime Crime's eyeliners. Oh sure I'd LOVE to get more lipsticks or lip glosses from Lime Crime (Velvetine Pink Velvet for me please) most likely we'll see a product other than lipstick or eyeshadow.

E-Mail Reveal - July 30, 2013

Stephanie, one of my Facebook readers, alerted me that Ipsy has FINALLY sent out the first reveal via email. It's late since in recent months the first reveal is sent out to non-subscribers a week before the end of the month but this month it was sent out a couple of days before the 1st! This means we probably won't see Sneak Peek #1 until tomorrow.
Keep in mind a few things.
  1. MissTrix on MakeupTalk pointed out that the Urban Decay lipstick shown in the email appears to be the new Revolution line however it does NOT appear to be full size. Compare it to Temptalia's picture of the new Revolution lipsticks. At this time we just don't know for sure if it's a deluxe sample or if it's indeed full size.

  2. This is an "OR" item which means SOME members will get it while others won't. It's not even guaranteed that those who sign back up for August will get it. We do know that there will be FIVE items in this month's bag and that some people will get the UD lipstick.

  3. We don't know if only one color variation is being sent out or if there are other colors being sent out. As of this post the Revolution lipsticks are not on Ipsy.com as far as I can tell.

Sneak Peek #1 - July 31, 2013
Lips Lipstick

Pro-lips at your fingertips from start to finish with one of these awesome August Glam Bag items.
So it appears all subscribers will receive either the Urban Decay Revolution lipstick deluxe sample size ($7.33, 0.03 oz) OR a NOYA Beauty (retail $3.99) in Vanilla or Cherry.

Sneak Peek #2 - August 1, 2013
Face Face Treatments

Skin perfection is in session with one of these awesome August Glam Bag items!
It's confirmed on the Michael Todd site that it's their products - Jojoba Charcoal Scrub (value: $5.29) the other a Pumpkin Mask (value $10). Both are 30 ml / 1 oz travel size not full size.

The promo code is for 30% off items on their website but at this time we don't know what the promo code is.

Sneak Peek #3 - August 2, 2013
AUGUST GLAM BAG SNEAK PEEK #3: Boost your look from good to glam with this eye-popping item! http://mygl.am/AugustGlamBagSneakPeek3

It's surprising that Ipsy gave this one away so easily. It's Pixi Beauty Lash Boost Mascara. Retail: $17. Keep in mind this is probably going to be deluxe size though.

Sneak Peek #4 - August 5, 2013
AUGUST GLAM BAG SNEAK PEEK #4: Class is in session with TWO of these amazing items in your August Glam Bag! http://mygl.am/AugustGlamBagSneakPeek4
So, this is the final picture of all the remaining items. Remember the first three items all subscribers are getting one of the "OR" items - lipstick or lip balm + scrub or mask + mascara + two of the seven items now shown.
  1. Nailtini nail polish [CONFIRMED]
  2. Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil [CONFIRMED]
  3. NYX Rouge Cream Blush [CONFIRMED]
  4. MicaBeauty (formerly MicaBella) in Bronze [CONFIRMED]
  5. Smashbox Photo Finish primer, 0.25 oz [CONFIRMED]
  6. City Color Cosmetics Cheek Stain (retail $2.99) [CONFIRMED]
  7. Unknown item (possibly NYX, possibly Pacifica) Pacifica BB Cream [CONFIRMED]

Sneak Peek #5 - August 6, 2013
AUGUST GLAM BAG SNEAK PEEK #5: Get ready to learn about what Glamour is all about this August. http://mygl.am/AugustGlamBagSneakPeek5
The final sneak peek is the bag itself. The bag is a purple bag with gold lettering that says Ipsy Glamour Academy. I know some people love the bag, some don't.

Personally I'm not crazy for the bag but this would make a great DIY project depending on the fabric of the bag. If it's vinyl you may want to pick up some E-6000 and some rhinestones from a craft store and if it's fabric some spray glue or fabric glue along with glitter. The possibilities are endless. I'm hoping it's a vinyl bag and that Parian Spirit will remove the lettering but we'll have to wait and see.

So recap (links will go to Ipsy):
  1. Urban Decay Revolution lipstick (deluxe sample, 0.4 oz) OR NOYA lip balm7
  2. Michael Todd Jojoba Charcoal Scrub OR Michael Todd Pumpkin Mask (both 1 oz / 30 ml)
  3. Pixi Beauty Lash Boost Mascara
  4. Nailtini nail polish AND/OR Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil AND/OR NYX Rouge Cream Blush AND/OR MicaBeauty (formerly MicaBella) in Bronze AND/OR Smashbox Photo Finish primer, 0.25 oz AND/OR City Color Cosmetics Cheek Stain AND/OR Pacifica Alright BB Cream
  5. The bag.

  1. I wonder if the delay is due to the entire bag being leakedlast month? Either way I'm excited last month wasmy first bag and I was impressed.

    1. Most likely since they're not uploading the individual product pages yet.

  2. I will be sooooo upset if I don't get that lipstick in at least one of my bags!

    1. The UD representative I emailed said this, "I'm sorry, but we do not have any deluxe size samples available yet. I cannot provide you with the weight and size of them, because we do not offer any deluxe sized samples. We are currently only offering our full-sized Revolution lipstick." This leads me to believe that the samples sent via Ipsy are going to be limited so it's going to be one of those not everyone is getting it items.

    2. Dang it! I really hope to get one! However, I never get any of the higher end stuff when it's limited. I looooove UD!

  3. I am LOVING this bag so far. And the purple glitter would be a very cute bag!

  4. So far my dream bag would be a vanilla noya lip balm (I wonder if they have SPF?). And the pumpkin mask... But it all look amazing, and as long as I don't get ANOTHER dusty pink colored lip product then I'd be happy regardless :)

    1. Unfortunately the NOYA lip balms do not contain SPF protection. The ingredients are: Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Flavor, Organic Stevia.

  5. So far my dream bag would be a vanilla noya lip balm (I wonder if they have SPF?). And the pumpkin mask... But it all look amazing, and as long as I don't get ANOTHER dusty pink colored lip product then I'd be happy regardless :)

  6. I've been wanting to try that Pixi mascara! I've already got quite long, dark lashes, so for daily wear I like a relatively lightweight mascara that just gives a bit of definition. I currently use Tarina Tarantino's Fleur de Lash, but the reviews on this one have given me a good impression for a soft/light daily mascara.

  7. all of the purple glitter and jewels makes me think of royalty :)

  8. I don't think that the Pixi Mascara is full size. You can see on the full size photo the product name (Lash Booster Mascara) is in a straight line under the fairy logo. However on the Ipsy photo, the product name is on two lines Lash Booster, with the word Mascara underneath it, implying that the tube is shorter than the full-size product.

    1. I think you're right. It's most likely a deluxe size.

  9. Fir once the ors aren't too bad.

    1. My phone hates me. For once the or's agent bad so far. I seem to always get the crappier stuff and it's frustrating and sad. I've cancelled in an effort to cut back.I've just got too much makeup for someone who only wears it in the weekends.

  10. Omg seriously? Where did you find that? I am getting a referral product in my August bag. Do you know if that's what you get for having two people sign up in July (shipped in the August bag), or two people sign up in August (shipped in the September bag)? I'm kind of dying now lol. Urban Decay shadows are my favorite, and I've wanted to try Lime Crime polishes forever!

    1. From the Ipsy website. When logged in clicked on ipsyPoints and it'll show it to you. Looks like each month the items will rotate.

  11. Do i have to sign up every month? I'm already subscribed

    1. Nope. You're already subscribed so it'll renew each month until you cancel.

  12. any reason you havnt put up sneak peak #4?

  13. Number 7 is a bb cream from pacifca!

  14. Number 7 is Pacifca BB cream

  15. Wow.. Great spoilers! My ideal bag is: cherry lip balm, Pumpkin scrub, Pacifica and the NYX blush. The city colors stick isn't great (tried one) and I hate lipstick!

  16. it looks to me like a pixi highligter rather than a chella eyebrow pencil! Just my thoughts but I can never figure these out so I always come to your site :) im excited though bag looks amazing!

  17. instead of a chella eyebrow pencil it looks like a pixi highlighter to me! Just my thoughts, but im never good at figuring these things out so I always look on your site! :) im excited though bag looks amazing!!!
