I just realized that I've been holding out on you guys; my last Ipsy review was back in May! Fast forward to August, and this month was definitely a big hit in my books! From the first peek at this bag, I knew I would be happy with my items. I also especially loved the bag this month, which was designed by Ipsy founder Michelle Phan.
The theme for August was Sugar Highness. Let's take a closer look at what was inside the bag...
I love nail polish, so it's always nice to find a brand and/or shade that I don't already own. I've been looking around for the perfect lavender shade so I was very happy to see this in my bag. The formula was amazing, the polish hugged my nails so it didn't leave streaks and so far, it doesn't seem like it will chip easily. Very impressed with Ciate!
2.) Tarte Cosmetics LipSurgence Lip Creme in Wonder
I loved this lip crayon in a deep rosy shade. It was so easy to use on my lips, and kept my lips feeling soft with a hint of color. I wore it as a tint, but you can also build up the color for a darker look. This will be a great color for fall. I also loved the hint of mint flavor. I couldn't find this exact color on the website, but there are so many others in the line that are worth trying out!
While this wasn't the most exciting item, it was definitely something that I will use. The only reason I haven't opened this up yet is because I already have so many in use! I got the Coconut Vanilla flavor and I can't wait to give this a try.
Now here is another useful item that will be a lifesaver during the workweek. These wipes have already gone into my work bag. This travel size is great because in comes in a 10-pack, making it easy to carry around. I love wipes to freshen up midday or when I'm feeling lazy at night, hehe. So excited to use these.
I'm not usually one for wearing eye shadow, but after swatching this, I would definitely use this palette! The shades are gorgeous and they all pair well together. Have I mentioned how cute this packaging is?! I'm really loving this brand.
Overall another great month for Ipsy. Loved everything I received and the bag will definitely be put to use as well. Now to wait for September sneak peeks...
