Hello everyone! It’s finally time for me to review what I got in my August Ipsy bag! The theme was Beauty Schooled. In case you haven’t heard about Ipsy before, it’s a $10 a month subscription service where you receive four to five deluxe samples and/or full-size products from skincare, makeup, hair and beauty brands. When you sign up, you take a quiz about your preferences, skin type and tone, etc., and then the products each month reflect your interests. In case you’re interested in signing up, click here! I’ve been using Ipsy for about nine months now or so, and I’ve been happy with my bag every single month so far.
August Ipsy Bag Review
Jersey Shore Sun Mongogo Nutrient Dense Anti-aging Lip Conditioner
This was the one product I forgot to use this month, so I can’t review it for you yet. I can say that it smells really good, though!
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
Like I said before, I’m pretty sure I’ve already gotten this in an Ipsy bag when I first joined, so it’s kind of a bummer to get a repeat product. It works fine, but I’m not in love with it. It does have a nice, light scent to it, and even though it sprays out white, it blends into your hair nicely.
J. Cat Beauty Flying Solo Eye Shadow in the shade Half Naked
I really like this color! I have to use it over an eyeshadow base, like the Maybelline Color Tattoos, to get it to last throughout the day, but it is really beautiful. I really like using it as an inner corner highlight or pop of color on the center of my lid as well. This shadow will definitely get a lot of use in the future!
Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner
I loved this! It’s similar in color to Benefit’s Porefessional, but I liked this product more. I noticed immediate results after I pressed this into areas where I have noticeable pores. It worked like a dream, and it didn’t feel heavy or cakey on my face. I put this on before my foundation, and I’ve found that my foundation just glides right on top of this product without caking up or anything. I really like this!
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
I have mixed thoughts on this mascara. At first I really liked it. I love how dark black it is and how it made my lashes look, but it made my lashes feel hard and weird, and throughout the day I noticed my lashes started to clump up a bit. I really wanted to like this, and I did for the first week or so of wearing it, but then for whatever reason I started disliking it and I haven’t used it now in about two or three weeks. I’m pretty disappointed because I’ve tried and loved other mascaras from Urban Decay.
