Hello lovelies! I’m sorry I’ve been gone for so long. I think I really needed a break for a little while to get myself together. Anyway, I’ve missed you all terribly and I’m ready to be back to blogging! Today I want to share my Ipsy bags from July and August. I was so busy most of this summer that I barely even noticed that I got my Ipsy bags, so I’m really excited to start using some of these samples.
For the month of July, I got five mini samples.
First up is this Bare Minerals 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow. It looks like it would be a great base for eyeshadow, I also think it would work well on its own with a little eyeliner for the perfect everyday look. I’m excited to use it this month!
Next is the Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t thrilled to find this in my bag because I’m not a huge fan of tanning oils. I’ve barely mastered regular mousse fake tanning! I don’t think I’ll be using this sample much at all, so maybe I’ll see if one of my friends want it.
I also got a Lavilin Jojoba Skin soother Gel Cream. The packaging says to use it after physical activity and to massage it into the skin. I don’t think I’ll use this the way it suggests, but I’ll probably keep it as a travel sized hand cream.
I thought this Tints & Sass cheek and lip stain was so adorable! I love the packaging and I’ve never used a cheek stain before so I’m excited to try it out!
I’ve had a couple of samples of the they’re Real mascara before, so I would’ve liked to have a different sample, but I’m glad to have another good mascara on hand.
Overall, my July Ipsy bag was ok. I was happy about the Bare Minerals, the Tints & Sass cheek stain, and the Benefit they’re Real mascara, but I could’ve done without the tanning oil and gel cream.
My August Ipsy bag came with five samples as well. I love that they came in this super cute polka dot pencil case that I think will be perfect for back to school.
First up is this single eyeshadow from J.Cat Beauty. I’ve never heard of this company and I don’t typically use single eyeshadows because palettes are easier to travel with, but this one is a pretty shimmery nude color that I think would be great to add to my collection. It also comes with a tiny mirror and eyeshadow applicator under the eyeshadow pan.
I was really excited to find this dr. brandt Pores No More primer. I’ve been running out of my favorite Hourglass primer, so this one came at the perfect time! I can’t wait to try this one out and let you know what I think.
I also got a lip balm from Jersey Shore Sun. I have a ton of lip balms, so I’m not sure this one will get a ton of use, but it does smell really good.
I’ve gotten this Klorane dry shampoo before and I’m actually not a huge fan of it, so I was a little disappointed to get it.
I also got a mini sample of the new Urban Decay Perversion mascara. I love having mini mascara samples, so I’m really excited to try this one out.
That’s all for my July and August Ipsy bags! Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!
