My August 2015 Ipsy bag is here! I have been a long time subscriber to Ipsy. I have subscribed since their second bag. I seriously love this subscription! It is so inexpensive, yet they usually have a great value to the bag.

The bags are so fun. I use the bags to keep my makeup and brushes in when I travel. They often include brands I have never heard of and brands I have. They include FULL-SIZE products and deluxe size samples. I have found many holy grail items because of Ipsy.

Cost: $10.00/month

Ships: To the US and Canada


August 2015 IPSY FIRST IMPRESSION:

I love the bag this month! It is so cute and totally reminds me of back to school. The bags are one of my favorite things about Ipsy. I couldn’t wait to dig in and see all I received!


REVIEW OF ITEMS:

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush

This is a sample size! It is the perfect size for traveling. I really like Batiste dry shampoos. I have received them in many subscription boxes. I honestly don’t need any more dry shampoo, so I will be giving this one away. It smells very feminine.


Eco-Beauty Good Night Night Cream

Eco-Beauty Good Night Night Cream

This is a sample size! I love the packet it comes in because you can seal it! All samples should do this! I have dry skin and this cream is supposed to be super hydrating. I can’t wait to try this. I am going to save it for fall and winter.


Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in Elegantly Wasted

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in Elegantly Wasted ($15)

This is a FULL SIZE! The name of this polish cracks me up! I seriously wish I could have a job in naming nail polishes! Wouldn’t that be awesome? Have you ever wanted to do that? Or am I just weird? If you know anything about a nail polish naming career, hook me up!

Anyway, I have over 500+ nail polishes and in that whole collection, I don’t have a color like this. I am not sure how it will look on my skin tone, but I am going to give it a go.


 

Hikari Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Merlot ($13)

This is a FULL SIZE! I love the deep color of this gloss! The gloss is extremely thick and most likely very long wearing. I love this color for fall! I can see myself reaching for this color a ton.


Doucce Cosmetics Ultra Precision Eyeliner in 500 Doucce Cosmetics Ultra Precision Eyeliner in 500 swatch

Doucce Cosmetics Ultra Precision Eyeliner in 500 ($22)

This is a FULL SIZE! That is an outrageous price for a black eyeliner! However, it is very creamy and it is waterproof. I thought I would give it away because I have a billion black eyeliners. However, at that price, I need to test it out and see if it is some miracle black eyeliner. It better be for the price!


OVERALL IMPRESSION:

Omgsh!!! I am actually impressed with this bag! When Ipsy had their bag reveal, I was disappointed and did not think I would like my bag! However, I am pleasantly surprised. The lip gloss definitely made me a lover. I can’t believe Ipsy is only $10! I will continue to subscribe to Ipsy! DUH!! What did you receive in your August bag? What do you think of the products this month? Let me know in the comments below!
