August Ipsy Bag-Love It or Leave It?

I am loving my Ipsy subscription so far! I just signed up in June after debating for awhile, but I am so glad I finally jumped in and did it! I reviewed my July Ipsy bag picks here. I highly suggest signing up for Ipsy! It gives you a chance to try out new products and brands, and you definitely get your money’s worth – sign up here!


The bag this month was a surprise… Ipsy subscribers didn’t know which bag they would receive until the day it arrived – so fun! I got the Wild & Free bag, and it’s super cute!



fileAsset-1This A-True Spring Green Tea Watery Calming Cream is so soothing and I loved it so much! I don’t use new moisturizers on my face because I am loving my current skincare
routine, so why change a good thing, right? But I did use this on my elbows, arms, and also my legs after shaving. It was so cooling and felt great on my skin. So, this is a LOVE for me! Get yours here!


fileAsset-2Oh my goodness, these face masks are my new love! I have already ordered more since I received them in my Ipsy bag. These are the Face Food Yoghurt Masks – Kiwi & Strawberry. They smell exactly like yogurt, which was a little strange in the beginning; but I guess they don’t call it Face FOOD for nothing! The Kiwi one was definitely my favorite. It felt amazing when I was applying it to my face, and dried to a more mask-consistency after about 5 minutes. I let it sit on my face for about 15 minutes, then washed it off to reveal skin that was now baby-soft. This product is absolutely a LOVE for me! Get yours here!


I am not a fan of these eyeshadows, maybe it was the dark brown color that I don’t fileasset-3.jpegusually use. I’m not sure, but there was just something about it that I did not like. The pigment was okay in this shadow, but I noticed it took some layering to make the color appear as dark as it looks in this picture. I have found so many amazingly pigmented eyeshadows that I am obsessed with, so it’s hard to steer me away from them. With that being said, this product is a LEAVE for me. This shadow is only sold in a full palette, so maybe some of the other colors are great. Get yours here!


Okay so when I received my email telling me what was going to be in my Ipsy bag, I was most excited for this mascara! I love that it comes in a squeeze tube, so you don’t waste near as much product because you can just squeeze it all out; right down to the last drop. This was the first product that I tried and the brush is great and covered my lashes so well. I noticed I have to apply 2-3 layers of mascara in order to achieve the look I’m going for, but it doesn’t get clumpy or anything. I am used to my Too Faced BTS brand mascara and my Loreal Voluminous Lash mascara because it only takes one layer for my lashes. But I am so in love with this tube design, I’ll get over having to apply a few more layers! This is a LOVE for me! Get yours here!


This eyeshadow brush is a LOVE for me! I am a sucker for anything brightly-colored, andfileAsset-5 I love the teal blue of this brush! It picks up a good amount of product, and the eyeshadow applies and blends so well with this brush! You can purchase the entire Teal Glam Brush Collection here!
