August REVEAL - Ipsy

Revealing Spoilers, Sneak Peeks and More!

Guess what?! It's that time again! Huzzah! The time for detective work, speculating, guesstamating, and surprises...and we are off to a FABULOUS start!

So we have our first sneak peek/spoiler and it is in the form of a Join Now email...and here it is:


I nearly fell over squeaking with anticipation! THIS is the one, the only, URBAN DECAY! Here is what the Rejoin Email had to say:

"We think it's time you give the Glam Bag a try! August's bag is going to be AMAZING. Many lucky subscribers will get this product from Urban Decay. And EVERYONE will get 5 personalized beauty products in an adorable makeup bag. Secure your spot on the Waitlist for a chance to get the August bag! JOIN NOW!" - from ipsy email

So based off of this email, we know the following:
  • The August Glam Bag will have FIVE products in it! Woohoo!
  • The Urban Decay lipstick will be an OR product, not in every bag
  • There IS a Waiting List currently, but there is still a chance to sign up for this August Glam Bag!
Looking at this picture, I can tell this is NOT a full-size Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick, but definitely a deluxe size. This is what the full-size looks like:

 Notice the difference of the legnth of the purple tube and the design/size of the lipstick tip and product itself. 

STILL, it's a DELUXE Urban Decay item! I am SO crossing my fingers for this little beauty. Now, I'm not 100% sure just yet, but judging from coloring of the email picture, this lipstick looks an awful lot like Turn On or Anarchy especially when I compare it to other colors and swatches. I'll update as soon as I know for sure which it is. I'd definitely love these colors though!

So has this gotten you all upside-down crazy excited like me? If you're not signed up for Ipsy yet, well then what are you waiting for! There is still a chance to get this already awesome looking bag! If you would like to use my personal referral link to sign up for Ipsy and possibly receive this month's Glam Bag, please CLICK HERE.

Now that it's almost the 1st, we should start seeing more Sneak Peek pics coming up soon, so stick around! I'll update as I get them!


Well this new update came up faster than expected! Haha! So this little gem popped up on Ipsy's Facebook today -


"Pro-lips at your fingertips from start to finish with one of these awesome August Glam Bag items"

Judging from the picture it appears that the two lipsticks are the deluxe sized Urban Decay lipsticks. Still unsure as to what shade that pink is in (bottom center), but I'm still leaning towards either Anarchy or Turn On, but the other on the top looks like it could be 69 or Bang...

Now as for the OTHER products in the pic, a match has been found! Here they are:




While I must say I'm not too impressed with Ipsy for making OR items either an Urban Decay lipstick or a Noya Lip Balm, I'm still very curious to try the Vanilla one and I wouldn't mind having either. However, I did start wiggling with excitement when I saw the Urban Decay...the Lip Balm, not so much ::giggles::

So I wonder what the fun and funky purple glitter could be about in the sneak peek pic! Girl's Night Out? Party? "from start to finish"...hmmmmm.....very exciting! What do you think?

I have been hearing that people are getting off of the waiting list, so if you're interesting in signing up and possibly receiving this August Glam Bag, join soon! There may still be spots that will open up! CLICK HERE TO JOIN IPSY.

More Updates Soon!


The updates are starting to roll in! Here's the next Sneak Peak on Ipsy's Facebook!


"Skin perfection is in session with one of these awesome August Glam Bag items!"

Once again, we have another OR item. It seems that everyone will be receiving either the dark purple tube or the light purple. More good news! It has also been confirmed on that these items are:


and we also know exactly WHICH two products these are from the Michael Todd are some screenshots:





Of course, these are shown in full-size and the items given in the Ipsy Glam Bag appear to be a deluxe-size. (EDIT - Zadi from just informed me that the tubes being sent in the Glam Bags will be in a 1 oz/30 ml size! The full-sizes for these products are 3.4 oz/100 ml. Thanks Zadi!). Also now I'm even MORE curious as to the theme! You can see a paper trophy that says Award of Excellence covering of the the product tubes so hmmmmm....and also the wording in the Sneak Peek "is in session"....I'm wondering if this is going to be some sort of Back to School theme? Or many just a Best Of Beauty theme.....VEEEEERY interesting and intriguing! What do you think?


 Sneak Peek #3 is out! Without further ado...


"Boost your look from good to glam with this eye-popping item!"

and whilst my lazy little self slept in this morning (Cookie needs to go to bed at a more reasonable hour ::giggles::) the fab girls at figured out what this awesome product is!


The mascara in the Sneak Peek picture appears to be a travel-size.

So this mascara comes in two different colors:


but since there is only one mascara tube in the picture, I'm guessing we'll only receive ONE shade. I could be wrong though! I'll definitely edit and update this post once I find out for sure, but it looks like this is a one-option-everyone-will-get product. Especially since the first two Sneak Peeks have been OR products. If we do only receive one, I'm hoping Ipsy will think out of the box and send the Blackest Blue because I'm LOVING the color! So gorgeous!

Once again, I'm leaning towards a school theme with those professor-esque glasses!

Which color are you hoping for? and what are your thoughts on the theme!


Guess what I've got for you! An Ipsy Sneak Peek multi-product picture! I knew you'd be pleased! Teehee...

From Ipsy's Facebook:


"Class is in session with TWO of these amazing items in your August Glam Bag!" 

Ohhhh my goodness! So we've got seven products shown above! Once again, we see the Back to School theme that I wondered about earlier last week! Let's go through the products one by one, shall we....

Mystery Item 1 - top left corner

Well this looks an awful lot like Nailtini to me! It especially looks like the Mai Tai color sent out last month in the Ipsy Glam Bags, however, Ipsy assured everyone on their Facebook today that there is NOT going to be any repeat if that's the case I wonder if this possibly could be Nailtini's Madras

It looks awfully orange in the sneak peek photo, though. However, keep in mind that Ipsy uses filters in their photos to throw people off sometimes. This is the only color that's possibly similar to the picture, other than Mai Tai and Bloody Mary, which both have been sent out in Glam Bags. Now ALSO, Ipsy may be using fancy sneaky wording and mean that no one that has RECEIVED Mai Tai will get a repeat. If that's the case ::raises hand in class:: I didn't receive one! Send it over here!!!

Mystery Item 2 - top center

This could be various things, but after some debate on, we've concluded that it could possibly be the Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil:

(Shown here in Dark Brown, not necessarily color that will be sent out)

It could also possibly be a Pixi product, but I'm leaning more towards the Chella given the size of the tube opening, the possible swirl of lettering barely shown in sneak peek pic and well phooey....gut instinct! I wonder which color they might send out?

Mystery Item 3 - top right corner

Well this is SO intriguing as this looks an awful lot like either a Nyx Cream Blush or Be a Bombshell Blush...BOTH of which have been given in previous Glam either this is a different product all-together or there is some sneaky-sneak-sneaking going on here! I wonder if Ipsy is playing with the wording in the sneak peek? "Class is in session with TWO of these amazing items..." so that doesn't necessarily mean that all seven products are possibilities in this month's Glam just says Ipsy could have thrown in the blush and nail polish to throw us off. Hmmmm, what do you think?

Mystery Item 4 - center right

And here we have a pigment! This could be SO many different's very hard to say as we have so little to go on with this picture. For the time being, however, this is what I've come up with as possibilities until I get further insight and updates:

Mica Beauty Mineral Eye Shadows
(possibly in one of these three shades)




Again, the brand is not confirmed AND another thing to note is Mica Beauty WAS a variation in the February 2013 Glam Bag in the shade Earth:

Obviously Earth seems much more pink toned than the picture, but ONCE AGAIN...there could be a filter and this could be another tricky post...hmmmmm....I keep saying hmmmm in this REVEAL, don't I?

Mystery Item 5 - bottom right corner

Hooray! Cookie actually knows what product this is! 

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
(Shown in full-size compared to sample size in sneak peek pic)

I am very excited to try this out as I always love looking for new primers and I've yet to try this one. ::crosses fingers:: here's hoping I get it!

Mystery Item 6 - center

What's that, Cookie? You know what this item is too?! YES! Thanks to some awesome detectives at makeuptalk (seriously, Cookie needs internet at work so on her downtime she can go and update in the threads and look up products! For real!), we now know based off of a product's website that this is what it is:

City Color Cheek Stain

(screen shot from

It appears from the sneak peek picture that this product might be in their Cheek Stain color Rose:

Mystery Item 7 - far left centered

There is some guess work with this item, as it's a bit tricky to read, but it appears that this may possibly be a Pacifica product, specifically the:

Pacifica Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream

How beautiful is that bottle? 

So most of this is guesswork and ideas, of course, none save the City Color Cheek Stain have been verified yet and even then, the color may be different. 

Of course, I shall update everyone once I hear more, but for now we know that TWO of these SEVEN (?) products will be featured in each Glam Bag! 


The bag! The bag! The bag has been revealed! ::eeps!::

From Ipsy's Facebook page:


"Get ready to learn about what Glamour is all about this August."

So the theme looks like it's going to be: GLAMOUR ACADEMY

How funny is that since Birchbox's theme this month is Finishing School!

I know a lot of people aren't happy with the design of this bag, but personally I think it's positively ADORABLE! I sooooo want to enroll at a Glamour Academy ::bats eyelashes, flounces hair:: We've been waiting a while for a purple Glam Bag as well as fancy print ones, and Ipsy listened! Love it!

Happy Guessing and Makeuping!
Love, Cookie

  1. I thought Obsessed was a good match for it too.

    1. Indeed! Obsessed looks very close, too! :-D

  2. I hope I get the Urban Decay sample in a fun color. The neutral colors ipsy has been sending me haven't been good matches for my skintone. :/ But still, I'm already excited for the August bag! :P

  3. Can't wait! Can't wait! Can't wait! <-- too excited.. *had too much caffeine before reading this post* Thanks for the sneak peek. xo Kelly

  4. I would really prefer the Urban Decay over the chapsticks, as many probably will. I have so much lip balm already...give me some COLOR! Not that I don't already have tons of lipsticks, but I feel I can never have enough of those since they are all *different* colors, unlike colorless lip balms which all look the same when applied. :)

  5. I would adore a cute little UD lipstick! I am all about color for my lips. The balm...well...uh, not so exciting.

    1. lol absolutely and I agree, those little lippies are the cutest things!

  6. Cookie - the sizes for the mask and scrub are 1 oz / 30 ml.
