I guess last month was a fluke when Ipsy arrived within a week of the ship date because this month we're back to the normal two and a half week wait. :( August's glam bag has a"sugar highness" theme which made me smile because it made me think of everything happy like sprinkles and colorful candy and unicorn farts.
It Cosmetics No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner - Black (0.35g, value $15) - No tugging? Check. Waterproof? Checkity check. It's smudge proof, too. I swatched this on my wrist and had to rub pretty hard with water for it to come off. My go-to eyeliner is Julep's When Pencil Met Gel but I'll definitely be using this one when I run out.

Peter Lamas Supreme Radiance Complexion Booster (10ml, value $14.50) - This is another expensive find. This complexion booster is lightly tinted and contains light-reflecting particles for a luminous finish. It also contains retinol and salicylic acid to reduce fine lines while CoQ10 and Vitamin E help protect and hydrate your skin.
This month's Ipsy is an example of the super high value ($80!!) you can get for just $10. Lucky for me, I can get use out of most of these things even if I can't afford to purchase the full sizes later on. :( My favorite is definitely the gel eyeliner. I know, boooring - but I do love when I discover a keeper and this eyeliner is exactly that.
