Ipsy: August

As far as past Ipsy bags go, this one was just so-so.  The products that were good were really good!  But then again, the products that weren't my favorite weren't awful either.  There was only one thing I'm just totally not going to use.  So those aren't bad odds!

Isn't this an adorable bag?  They have been doing really well lately on their bags! I love the ombre, the glitter accent, and the tassel zipper was a really nice touch.

These are Face Food masks.  I always prefer makeup to masks and skin care, but I'm not upset about these because they are cream instead of sheet masks, which I'm not into.  One is a strawberry yoghurt brightening mask and the other is kiwi yoghurt revitalizing mask.  They feel and smell exactly like flavored yogurt, which I think is honestly really cool!  The packaging is also super cute!

This is the Aurora Pro Color Correcting Concealer in Pistachio.  I never did get into the whole color correcting craze, and though I have tried a few different products it just never really worked well for me.  So that's to say, I wasn't super crazy over this product.  I don't have color correcting marked as something I was interested in on my survey, and I gave this a poor review, so hopefully I can avoid these from now on.  

This is an eyeshadow from theBalm Cosmetics from their Balm Voyage Vol. 2 collection in the color Kuwakaribisha.  Don't ask me to pronounce whatever that is...  This is a really nice champagne shimmery color!  I always love theBalm eyeshadows, and this one did not disappoint.  This is the perfect all over lid color to use as a base, and I will be using it frequently!

This is the Air Repair Super-Hydrating Eye Cream.  Though eye creams aren't something I am in love with or use too frequently, it is something I would potentially like to get into to save the area around my eyes in the future.  The only other product I have like this is also from Ipsy, but it is very light, so this will be nice for the winter months.

This is a Pacifica Coconut Blush duo in Beaming and Tenderheart. This is probably one of the nicest products I've ever gotten in a Ipsy bag.  A full sized Pacifica makeup product?  One of these blushes retails for $12 and I got two!  These are extremely pigmented with a really nice and lasting color payoff.  The darker one actually almost looks like a bronzer and I had been using as such (up until now I guess!)

I received mine in the color 006 My Bae (fourth from the left), which is very... pink.  I love pink toned eyeshadows, but you've got to be careful!  It is sometimes difficult to walk that line between sunset eyeshadow look and child who broke into their mom's makeup.  Using this as a standalone eyeliner almost takes it a step further to, my child stole used my makeup and the gave me pink eye. Sorry, extended metaphor, moving on.
It is like a paintbrush style applicator, but it is hard like a silicone tip instead of brush hairs.  It makes applicati…

Nadine West: Fourth Shipment

So this wasn't the most successful shipment ever, but I still got one nice piece out of it!  And they left me a sweet surprise which I'll tell you about at the end, so I wasn't upset at all!
This is actually two items from my shipment!  This outfit contains both the shirt and leggings from this month, and they kind of go together!  
Though I really liked the pattern of the leggings, they are much more like tights.  They were totally see through, which made me pretty sad.  If they were marketed as tights then I wouldn't be too disappointed, but these were called Leggings.  They retailed for $14.49, and I didn't keep them.
The shirt fit very well and was extremely comfy.  I have been looking for a shirt this color, so I was pretty excited to see it in my bag, even though it is pretty basic.  This shirt also retailed for $14.49, and I did elect to keep it!
These are the "Beauty Within" earrings, and I'm actually pretty sure I received the matching neckl…

VoxBox: Tressemé Beauty-Full Volume

I know I don't usually post at 9 o'clock on Monday nights, but I wanted to go ahead and get this out to you all while I had time, because... I got another VoxBox! This one was the Tresemmé Reverse Your Routine box with a full sized shampoo and conditioner.

This is a Volumizing system, and is reffered to as "Reverse Your Routine" because you conditioner before you shampoo... Weird right?  I have to say I was a little confused and skeptical at first. The concept is that when you put conditioner in your hair and rinse then residue is left on weighing down your hair.  My thoughts were that the residue left were the moisturizing properties and that you wouldn't want to rid yourself of all of them... It just seemed a little pointless.
I have been using this combination periodically for a few weeks now, and surprisingly I actually really like it!  When I get out of the shower my hair does feel much lighter than usual.  Though it is hard to tell if I have much more volu…
