August 2013's Glam Bag theme was "Glamour Academy".
It was all about looking great for back to school.
Pixi Lash Booster Mascara - $17 for 7g
$2.43 for 1g
Lash Booster? Nope. It didn't hold a curl, didn't volumize, and didn't lengthen. It seemed more like runny black liquid.

Michael Todd True Organics Jojoba Charcoal Gentle Exfoliator Facial Scrub - $18 for 3.4 fl. oz.
$5.30 for 1 fl. oz.
If there is one skincare product I have heard of more than Proactive it is Michael Todd. I was so excited to get this product and fell in love with it like everyone else. It is a black (hence the charcoal) which can be quite scary but it really gets in there and cleans out our pores.

I was excited to get an eyebrow pencil in my glam bag but the Brunette shade, even applied with a light hand was WAY too dark. And after using my It Cosmetics Universal Eyebrow Pencil for the past month I can't go back to anything else.

NOYA Beauty Cherry Lip Balm - $3.99
If you like cherry cough syrup then you will love this stuff! I on the other hand hated it and actually already threw it in the trash. The smell and the taste was revolting.

Pacifica Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream - $16 for 1 fl. oz.
$4.70 for 0.34 fl. oz.
Every Pacifica product I have tested have quickly become my favorite and this product is no different. It is light but gives great coverage. I love how it gives a very healthy glow to the skin. If you have oily skin, I wouldn't recommend it but normal/dry this will be a dream. I need to pick up a full size the moment my sample runs out.
