So I finally took the dive, and bought an Ipsy subscription! I have enjoyed watching these videos for years, but could never bring myself to go ahead and buy it, but I'm so excited I did!
First of all, can we talk about how incredibly cute this bag is? It is a metallic brown pleather above the zipper and on the back, and below the zipper is textured. I thought is was so cute, that I used it as a clutch on my Anniversary!
So the first thing I received on the far left is First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. This is a very thick unscented hand cream, which will be great for Winter!
The second thing I received was Elizabeth Mott Queen of the Fill tinted brow gel. I was really excited about this, because I've never tried a brow product before, but I have been wanting to! Sadly, because I don't pluck or wax my brows, they were very thick and dark to begin with and the thick brow look did not work for me...
The third thing I received on the far right, is Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Primer Style Prep. This is basically a heat protectant, for sleek (I'm assuming meaning straight?) styles. I have been using this, and haven't noticed a huge difference in my hair, but it smells amazing! It is almost a spicy, fruity, fall kind of scent! Really unexpected, yet very pleasant! My only complaint with this product would be that it had leaked all over everything else during shipping...
I also received this eyeshadow from a NYX and Ipsy partnership, that can't be bought in stores! I have really been enjoying it. It has a champagne light brown that is very shimmery, a medium brown color with a bit of glitter, and finally a soft black. These colors are very pigmented and buildable.
The final thing I received J. Cat Beauty #MOTD Waterproof Slide on Pencil for Eyes in Bronze. It is a very smooth and pigmented pencil that is made to last for the whole day! Though I have quite a few pencils in this color already, it's nice, so no complaints.
Finally, since I have been slack and not shown you my July or August bags, I thought I would show you the highlights from both!
In July I received this cloth, almost tie-dye bag, that fit the "Summer Lovin" theme quite well! My favorite product from the month was Octavio Molina Hair La Playa Salt Spray. I have tried the Not Your Mother's Beach Spray before, and I like this one a lot more! It has a good hold, and a very salty beachy smell. I have found it works best on dry hair, and does well reviving tired curls and scrunched hair.
In August I received this black and white bag that has almost a vinyl texture, which I was too crazy about. My favorite thing by far in this bag was the Starlooks Luxe Longwear Eye Liner Pen. I have tried eyeliner pens before, and tried winged eyeliner before, and neither have ever really worked out... until this! This glides on so smoothly, lasts forever, yet when you make a mistake, easily wipes off! This is probably my favorite makeup item I've ever had!
