August Ipsy Bag

Hi :)
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?

  1. Don't, donnnn'ttttt even get me started on my August ipsy crap bag. I say yes to unboxing and first impression video, I love those!

    And not sure about the cream blush, I love cream blushers but never seen one separates that way? Seriously, I am a little fed up with ipsy and planning to tell them to shove their glam bags up where the sun don't shines. *insert dull face emoji*

    1. Ugh I'm sorry your bag is crap! I've been pretty fed up with them too. But I'm afraid once I cancel the bags will start getting good LOL!!

  2. The lip liner looks like a color you can wear with a bunch of lipsticks. I got that blush too but I'm not sure if its the same color. I also go the Hikari gloss which is a pretty wine color. I'm filming my unboxing video today. Hopefully I'll have it up next week. I just signed up for the new Sephora subscription service. I hope its good because I'll end up dumping ipsy.

  8. I like the lip products you got in this bag. I agree; this seems just okay this month. I keep going back and forth on if I want to get an Ipsy or not.

    1. Yes the lip products were good! I honestly dont recommend subscribing. I seem to just get okay bag or just plain blah bags lately. I mean it's only $10 so that's not a lot if you want to subscribe but I feel like there's better ones out there. Sephora just made one that's also $10 and I bet its way better!
