Makeup Monday: August IPSY Glam Bag

Before we get into this month's review of the products, I want to share a story...
Last month, I griped about the time period it takes for me to get my Glam Bag each month. I was really fed up, and this month my shipping information showed me that my bag sat in the warehouse for SEVEN days. I was really annoyed, so I contacted DHL about the issue. I got the run around via e-mail, their website and the phone. I got zero help from them at all, so really annoyed, I contacted IPSY asking about what we could do. Quite frankly, I was ready to unsubscribe from this service because of how long it takes to get to me. Some months they bill me for the next month, and I still haven't gotten the previous month's bag.
So suppose my surprise when I got to my mailbox and found a glam bag with an apology from IPSY! When I checked the shipping, it had been 2-day shipped to me. THAT, is great customer service. Ipsy, you win, you can keep me!

I've been using this product religiously for several days now and love it. It's really neat that it is all natural AND kosher, and even better that its probably the best chapstick I've ever used!

I really was hesitant to try this scrub, even though all the reviews raved about it. Charcoal based scrub? So I tried it out, looked like I rolled out of an episode of Duck Dynasty, but found that I LOVE it! It's fantastic! 

I love BB Creams, and I've used up almost all of them I've received, so trying out another brand had me really excited! This one left me feeling fresh, it was lightweight and smelled GREAT. It even helped me with concealing some acne!

I am all about my eyelashes, so I am consistently trying to find new mascaras and different wand styles to create the biggest look for my lashes. Mini's are by far the best for creating huge, dramatic lashes! I love this lash booster mascara, the wand is great and creates HUGE lashes! 

I love all the products and colors I've gotten from Nailtini. Each one has come at the best time possible for the color, (glitter during Christmas, peach in the spring, and now a vibrant orange for fall!) and is a great quality polish. You'll be seeing a Mani Monday with this color soon!
