July & August Ipsy Reviews.

Sorry, still playing catch-up on my Ipsy posts :(.

Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription box. Each month you get 4-6 beauty products inside a makeup bag. If you’d like to subscribe to Ipsy, I’d appreciate you using my referral link. It arrives each month in a pink bubble mailer!

July’s theme was ‘Sensationally Sunkissed’. So this is what I go in July:


Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil SPF 8. Do people still use tanning oil, seems so 1987 to me 🙂
Pur Minerals Big Look Waterproof Mascara in Black. Love this, and it was in black. Score!
Lavalin Jojoba Gel Cream. Not even sure what this is, I’ll have to do some research. Anyone heard of this product?
Pixi Beauty Mini Tinted Brilliance Balm. OK, kind of too bright of a pink for my liking.
bareMinerals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow. Nice neutral color, interesting product.

The bag itself kind of reminds me of a giant pink ravioli. Not the biggest fan, not sure how I feel about it.

I give this month’s bag and products a 2.5/5. Not the best.

Let’s move on to August’s bag. August’s theme was ‘Beauty Schooled’, since it was back to school time. The products I received were:

20140831_133927Coastal Scents Forever Blush Sample. Nice little sample set. I really need to get one of those Glam Rx palettes.
Dr. Brandt Pores No More. This is like the 3rd time I’ve gotten this from a beauty subscription. It’s a pretty good product overall though.
Absolute You’re The Balm in Green Apple. The balm itself is a transparent red balm. It really does smell just like apples!
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara in black. Love, love, love this.
Lord & Berry Silk Kajal Kohl Pencil in black. Black eyeliner score. Goes on nicely.

The bag this month is a orange polka-dot pencil case, it’s so-so. Overall I give this bag a 4/5. It was a pretty good one!

I also finally redeem some IpsyPoints! They were offering  a mystery glam bag for 1000 points. I decided to go for it because I haven’t really liked any of the single items that were available. This is the bag and products I received:

20140831_134030Starlooks Eyeliner in a blueish/teal color. Just not a color I’ll wear.
Pop Beauty Eye Shadow Trio in neutral colors. Great palette for neutral eyes.
Klorane Smoothing & Relaxing Eye Patches. Haven’t tried these yet, but I’m excited too.
Pacifica Indian Coconut Nectar Body Butter. Love this smell, also moisturizes nicely.
Coastal Scents Eye Shadow Brush. I already have this brush, but you can’t have too many brushes right!?

The bag is a leopard print accented with neon green, I like it.  Overall this was a pretty good bag & products. I’d rate it 3.75/5. I think it was worth the 1000 points.
