I forgot to share my ipsy bag last month for July, but I wanted to share the one i got for this month in August! You all know I've had mixed feelings lately about this subscription service, the bags are really hit or miss for me. This month was a mix of both, so let's get into what I recieved!
This months theme was 'Prep School'. It's almost back to school season, (here in Michigan we don't start till after Labor Day) so I'm guessing this bag is in honor of that.
I did like the bag this month, it's a shiny plastic-ish material which isn't my favorite, but I love the houndstooth pattern, with the pop of pink on the zipper.
Eco-beauty Goodnigt night cream. I'm testing this out right now with the day cream I got from ipsy a while back. I was actually excited about this because I just finished up the night cream I was using. So far, there's nothing special about this but I will be doing a full review of this and the day cream in a skin care Sunday post next month.
Albertini Divine Skin Hydrator. This is an 'in shower body moisturizer'. I will never use this so this wasn't too exciting for me.
Lord & Berry Lip Liner in Nude. This was the item I was most excited about. I've been super into lip liners and this is a gorgoues color. Props to ipsy for picking me a shade I don't hate.
Noyah Lipstick in Natural. This is a cute mini sized lipstick that's great for keeping in your purse because it doesn't take up too much space. The color is just okay to me, it's a little too bubble gum pink but I can't make it work with certain lip liners.
Doll 10 Beauty HydraGel blush in Flirt. This is a cream blush and it's a very pretty shade, but I don't really do cream cheek products. I may try this but I don't have high hopes for it. Also I did notice that some of the blush looked a little wet/oily, and I'll insert a picture.
I've never seen any cream blushes I've owned do that before so I was a little confused. It's probably just the oil or 'gel' separating but ugh.
Over all in going to rate this bag a 3/5 stars. I was excited about the lip liner and night cream, the bag is cute, and the lipstick is okay.
What did you recieve this month from Ipsy? I was also thinking about doing an unboxing video for next months bag so you all can see my first reaction (first impression??) to what I recieve, which is either usually really good or bad. Would you all be interested in something like that?
