Ipsy review! August didn't seem exciting at first glance, but I was pleasantly surprised by the items in my bag. Let's start off with my favorite!
1.) Doucce Ultra Precision Eyeliner in Black
While I wasn't excited for the eyeliner at first (Ipsy sends out too many eyeliners!) I ended up loving it. It's highly pigmented and felt rich and creamy as I applied it. It was long lasting me for as well. This will definitely become a go-to eyeliner in my makeup bag. I've never heard of Doucce, so I'm excited to try more from this brand. Looks like they have a full range of products!
2.) Hikari Cosmetics Lipgloss in Merlot
Finally a darker lip color in my Ipsy bag. While I'm not the biggest fan of lip glosses, this is such a pretty color, especially for the fall.
3.) Marc Anthony Nourishing Argan Oil
I love Argan Oil, and I'll pretty much try anything that may tame the frizz in my hair. This oil definitely softened my hair and added some shine without feeling greasy. This smells great too! I think this is available in drugstores, so I will be looking for this the next time I'm out shopping!
4.) Marsk Eyeshadow Brush
This is a high quality brush that does provide a precise line! I'm so-so on this because I don't wear eyeshadow that much, but I'm always looking to perfect a smokey eye, so maybe this brush will help!
5.) Aila Polish in Mister Pookies
I'm always a fan of trying new polishes, especially ones that are all natural and non toxic. This brand is another that I hadn't heard of but is intriguing me this month. Aila has a fun collection of colors; I love that the names all have personal meaning to the founder. I haven't tried this yet because I already have polish on, but you can be sure that I'll share a swatch on my Instagram soon!
I don't typically try to calculate the price of my Ipsy bags each month, but this really surpassed the $10 monthly fee for the subscription! I'm impressed with the quality and the amount of full size items I received! And it was a great mix of products. I can't wait to see what brands will appear in next month's bag!
