August Ipsy Bag Review

I treated myself to a birthday present this year and got an Ipsy bag. For just $10 I was able to get a bag with 5 products for me to try out. I'm not a huge makeup wearer, but I do love nail polish, hair products and lotions/potions. Here's a look at what I got!

Doucce - Ultra Precision Eye Liner in Black

This eyeliner was great. It went on smoothly and had a nice deep black color which I loved. My only complaint is my typical eyeliner has a smudger (is that a word?) on the other end so I can blend the color easier so I don't end up with a harsh line along my lashes.

Briogeo - Blossom & Bloom ™ Ginseng + Biotin Volumizer

I wasn't impressed. This volumizer left my hair feeling greasy and didn't provide hardly any volume. The smell and application technique was fine but I certainly wouldn't purchase this on my own.

Hikari Cosmetics - Lip Gloss in Salsa

This is not a color of lip gloss I would've normally purchased but I loved the way it looked once it was on. My only complaint is that it was quite goopy (my descriptive words are on point today) and almost left a stain on my lips once it wore off. This meant I had to keep reapplying all morning as the majority of it ended up on my coffee cup.

OZ Naturals - Amino Herbal Hydration Mask

If you are looking for some extra hydration this winter I would highly recommend this mask. It's easy to apply and works great. I will be using this daily or weekly come this winter when my skin really dries out.

Trust Fund Beauty - Nail Polish in Elegantly Wasted

This vegan, cruelty-free nail polish was awesome. The coverage was way better than I expected and I remained pretty much chip-free for a week. The light purple/lavender color wouldn't have been my pick but they have a bunch of other options that I would buy!

Have you ever tried a monthly subscription like this? Want to try Ipsy? If you sign up through my link I get 250 bonus points that I can use towards products in addition to my bag. So thanks in advance if you do that. I can't wait to see what I get next month!

  1. You got completely different products then me! That lavender colored nail color would be really pretty in the spring! I have a black and also a brown eyeliner with a smudger on the end and I always use it for my eyeliners that don't!



Thanks for taking the time to comment. I really do appreciate every one I get!
