Ipsy Review : August 2018

For those of you who don’t know about this subscription bag it is  $10 and contain 5 deluxe size samples (and sometimes full size products)  each month.

Ipsy starts with a beauty quiz that asks you questions about different things you like as well as your different features (i.e. Blonde hair, green eyes, fair skin). Each month you also can review the products your received; so if you love something you let them know and if you hate something you let them know.

Lets get into this months bag!

img_1682For some reason I forgot to get a full photo of the bag this month but it’s a bright orange canvas type material with bright yellow trim. It’s not may favorite bag just because I’m not the biggest fan of orange and yellow but I always find ways to use my bags after the fact.

Now for the goodies I got this month!

Pixi by Petra Blush- Shade: Beach Rose

This is such a nice blush! I always love getting powder products like this because it allows the ability to try them without the full commitment. This shade is a beautiful dusty terracotta shade and the pigment is there! I have s couple of other Pixi products and I think it’s a really luxe but affordable brand! I have loved everything I have tried from them so far and this was a really nice addition to my collection for the summer! I couldn’t find this on the Pixi website so I wasn’t able to link it to day.

Hikari Cosmetics; Cream Pigment Eyeshadow; Shade: Fierce             Retail Price $13

I am going to have to check but I’m pretty sure I have gotten a shadow from Hikari before. These are really nice high quality shadows with fantastic pigmentation and amazing shine! I don’t normally go for red shades like this so I will be stepping out of my comfort zone using it but I am really looking forward to giving this a try this coming fall and winter. This has a really nice and buttery consistency that I find amazing!


Glow For A Cause; Lip Love Lip Blam; Shade Flirt

This was a cute addition to our bag this month and for such a good cause. Glow For A Cause donates a good portion of their proceeds toward lots of non-profit organizations that range from cancer research to college scholarships to no-kill animal shelters. Which is really awesome that we are getting a product that serves a dual purpose. This is a really nice lip balm as well. It has a really nice smooth application and is buttery and leaves my lips feeling hydrated. I really enjoy that this came in our bag this month! I can always use different lip balms for at night and for the upcoming cold months.

Glamour Dolls; Sweet Treat Popsicle Lip Gloss; Shade; Peach                     Retail $4.99

This is my absolute favorite item I got this month! First off it’s the most adorable packaging which I am a sucker for and secondly this is a really nice gloss that smells like candy! The peachy color is one of my favorites and it has an very so slight shimmer to it that I absolutely love! I have been pairing this with a few of my other lipsticks as a center lip topper and it’s been the most adorable lip gloss! I am really loving this!

Ciate London; Glow-To Highlighter; Shade- Moondust                       Full Size Retail $29

Last but not least is this amazing highlighter from Ciate London! I was so impressed to see this in our bag and to be a really nice size I just couldn’t believe it! This highlighter is absolutely beautiful and makes such a statement when applied! It has a very smooth and buttery texture and I have been using it almost every day since I got it! The shade has a pink undertone which I am totally drawn to and love to apply! This also works really well with my more cool tone make up looks! The only thing I didn’t like about getting this in out bag is that it came in a plastic pan. Normally these come in metal pans and I can add them to my magnetic palettes with out any issues…this one will just have to sit on my desk and get used….clever marketing maybe on their part? you be the judge!

Any how that concludes my August Ipsy bag. I really loved this month! I hope I keep getting good bags like this! Do you get Ipsy? What did you get in your bag this month?

Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
