The beginning of fall means it’s back to school time.

And that was the theme of the August ipsy Glam Bag:

Prep School.

I’m sharing the products I received in my August Glam Bag and my thoughts on the products.

August ipsy Glambag

Nail Polish in the shade Elegantly Wasted from Trust Fund Beauty: I received a full-sized bottle of this dark lilac nail polish. This nail polish and non-toxic and cruelty-free. I absolutely love this color because I think it’s great for all seasons and can be flattering on anyone. The formula goes on smoothly and you get a true-to-color application on the first try. There’s no need to apply multiple layers before you actually get the color that matches the one in the bottle. Also, it’s pretty long-lasting, which is great for someone like me who usually chips her nails on day 1.

Ultra Precision Eye Liner in Black from Doucce: I also received a full-size of this eyeliner pencil. This waterproof pencil glides on smoothly and gives a bold, black line. However, I’m not the biggest fan of plastic pencil eyeliners because I always hope to get more product than you actually receive. This isn’t a retractable pencil or one that can be sharpened, so what you see is what you get. Overall, I did enjoy this product and it has been my go-to liner lately for a quick and easy application.

Lip Gloss in the shade Merlot from Hikari Cosmetics: I received a full-size of this intense red-mauve lip gloss. This product is very pigmented and has a non-sticky formula. I also really love the color! I’ve been wanting to try the lip products from Hikari for a while, so I was happy to receive this in my Glam Bag.

Eyeshadow Primer from Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics: I received a deluxe sample size of this product. This cream eyeshadow base aims to provide long-lasting eye looks. I’ve used this product a couple of times, but I’ll need to wear it a few more times to take better notice of how long it helps my eyeshadow to last.

Blossom & Bloom Ginseng + Biotin Volumizer Blowdry Spray from Briogeo: I received a deluxe sample size of this volumizing spray. This natural and vegan-friendly spray aims to provide hair with a fuller appearance. This is the only product I haven’t had a chance to use since I haven’t used heat or blow-dried my hair recently.
