AUGUST SNEAK PEEK #1:
Pro-lips at your fingertips from start to finish with one of these awesome August Glam Bag items.
First off, I would like to say that I’m happy to see this sneak peek being released first! Last month, they sent an email sneak peek for Benetint, but then didn’t release the OR options until sneak peek #5.
It doesn’t look like they’d be equal in value but the Urban Decay lipstick looks pretty small, especially in comparison to the lip balm. The values of the products shouldn’t differ from one another by more than a few dollars.
What we know:
- We get either an Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick, probably deluxe size (to me it looks like 69 or Bang, and Anarchy), or a Noya Lip Balm from Makeupgeek in Vanilla or Cherry. It’s unsure if these are the only variations or of they’ll send more colors/flavors.
- The bag consists of 5 items.
I’d hope to get either the fuchsia lipstick by UD or the Noya Lip Balm in Vanilla, leaning more towards the Noya. I really hate cherry flavored anything (thanks to modern day cough medicine, lol) and that red color looks unappealing to me. It reminds me of the Be a Bombshell Lip Gloss in Hot Mess that we received a while back that had a hint of orange to it. I’m really sick of corals and orange hues. I hope now that summer is coming to a close, Ipsy will start transitioning to deeper colors (wines, plum purples, burgundy).
In any case, I’m pretty happy after seeing this sneak peek. This is what I was hoping Ipsy would do. For a high end product they advertise, they give ONE decently comparable alternative. And in this case, for everyone who doesn’t have lipstick selected as an item they’d normally want (I’m in that category), then there’s a comparable lip product more suitable for those less likely to wear bold lips.
Ipsy has gotten great at selecting the perfect items for me, but their color choices still aren’t on par with what I’d wear, otherwise I’d be more willing to try lipsticks.
