August Ipsy

It's finally arrived! My August Ipsy bag is here!
 
If you don't know what Ipsy is you are missing out! It's a monthly subscription box that send your 4-6 beauty products every month. Each box is filled with great samples of make up, skin care items, nail products etc. in a cute little bag. It all comes right to your doorstop for 10 dollars and that includes shipping. This month I felt like the August bag was never going to get here! This month's theme was Beauty Schooled. Since this was the second fall that I've been with Ipsy I knew that it would have a school like theme to it. This month's bag was a pencil shaped orange and white polka dot bag filled with 5 products. Let's dive right in...

1. Urban Decay Perversion Mascara.
2. Coastal Scents Forever Blush: Fresh & Elegant.
3. Dr. Brandt Pores No More Primer.

4. Absolute New York You're the Balm: Grape.

5. Lord & Berry Eye Liner: Black Silk Kohl.

The Pros: I loved the bag that everything came in. Super cute and sturdy. I also loved the Urban Decay Mascara. Great brand and always a great product. I also love that they gave me the flavor grape for the lip balm. Dr. Brandt pore primer. I love a good primer!

The Cons: The sample blush. Super flimsy packaging and the tiniest blush samples ever. The mascara pencil is smaller than my pinky. I mean really it's probably worth a dollar if that. While I love that they gave me a grape flavor lip balm, I DO NOT use lip products. RARELY will I ever put anything on my lips. Maybe twice a year. They give me fever blisters. I have sensitive lips people. Come on Ipsy. Stop sending me these. I thought we had an understanding two bags ago.

So sign up! Let me know what you get! Tell me which products you love and which one's you'll be passing on to a friend. Get your best friend to sign up, if you don't love something you can swap it with her!

I am so bad at using primer- do you really think it makes a difference?

I was ticked that I got dry shampoo. First, I hate the stuff. Second, my profile says I have dark hair. At least send me dry shampoo for DARK HAIR. Seriously.
