August Ipsy | 2016

Another month, another ipsy!

I loved this month’s bag and products! A range of products- one I really needed, and lots of travel essentials which is perfect for the traveling I’m going to be doing.

Details on the products and my thoughts below:


This month’s bag is so cute! I have already moved my travel essentials in there…Side note: I have way too many bags now from these Ipsy subscriptions!


I can never have enough Makeup Cleansing Wipes. Besides, having them at home for late nights when you’re too lazy or tired to actually wash your face, these are sooo perfect for traveling! Use them to wipe makeup or use them just to refresh after a flight, or a hike or waking up. These are Symphony Beauty’s Makeup Cleansing Wipes – Moisturize in Cucumber & Aloe Vera. These are already in my bag…

Summer is too hot and too much for foundation or a crazy makeup routine. I am loving putting either moisturizer, primer and/or BB cream on my face and calling it a day. That’s why I got excited about these Marcelle BB Cream, Golden Glow. I want a BB cream, and I definitely one that gives me that golden glow in the summer. I am trying this out tomorrow. You can count on that.


Yes, yes, yes! I need a new beauty blender bad. And now I got one! This was such a much needed, useful product to get this month. This alone made this month’s subscription worth it.

I love getting cleansers and face washes in my subscription boxes. They are smaller but last awhile! I love being able to try different ones out and easily take them when I travel. I am finally getting through all the ones I have received in the past so was happy to receive The Organic Pharmacy Rose Facial Cleansing Gel. I am excited for this one since it seems like it will be gentle but refreshing. I also know from using my rosewater toner how it purifies your face so very excited to use this as a morning or evening to wash my face.


A tiny waterproof gel eyeliner? Getting the iT Cosmetics No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner was a pleasant surprise. This one is small enough for travel – can you notice my joy for travel sized items, makes packing so much easier and compact! I also have enjoyed a couple iT Cosmetics products as of late, so it’s nice to try another one. Finally, someone was telling me how the love gel eyeliners the best, so I’m excited to give this one a go.


Finally, this Winky Lux Diamond Powder…yeah, had to read up on this! It’s a finishing powder, that get this, has diamond technology (like diamond bits!) in it :O Yeah, so it smoothes and brightens. You put it on top of any concealer you put on your face, and it helps blur imperfections and makes you glow. AND because it’s yellow based, it hides dark circles. This sounds amazing, right?! I need to test this out.

Let me know if you got different products in your ipsy box or what you thought of the products I got!

Until next time,
