Ipsy – August 2014 Review

ipsyalBeeju and I were bag twins this month. Yay!

ip0syD Lys: My bag came crumpled into a ball. It has yet to regain its proper shape. At least it looks cute…

Beeju: ❤ it. I love that ipsy sends such a nice variety of bag styles too!

ipsyprimerDr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner

D Lys: It’s minty smelling! I don’t know about this one, I didn’t see much of a difference in my skin and pore. I’ve honestly never used a primer before though (I don’t wear any sort of foundation).

Beeju: It’s ‘aight. I’m not big on primer but I’ve heard excellent things about this brand.

ipsyshamKlorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk

D Lys: I’m saving this for the next time I go on a trip. It should prove useful.

Beeju: It smells like oatmeal 😦

ipsymasUrban Decay Perversion Mascara

D Lys: After the mascara debacle of June’s Ipsy bag I was not thrilled to find more mascara in my bag this month. Given my propensity to react to mascara I stayed away from trying this. It didn’t smell like machine oil, so that’s a plus!

Beeju: I like Urban Decay. I can’t try this yet but I am saving it for when I can. I’m excited about it!

ipsyshadowJ. Cat Beauty Flying Solo Eye Shadow in Half Naked

D Lys: This is a really pretty shimmery nude shadow. I also really like the tiny mirror in this. I don’t wear powder shadows, but the quality of this little guy makes me want to check out this brand’s other products.

Beeju: It’s the same color as my skin so I didn’t open it but I am digging the tiny mirror and brush in the bottom! 😀 I hear good things about this brand so I’ll probably pick up a different shade.

ipsymongo Jersey Shore Sun Mongongo Lip Conditioner

D Lys: Hooray, a lip product! I’m sure it’s just what this month’s bag needs to save it from mediocrity!

IT’S GINGER FLAVORED. WHY IPSY? WHYYYYYYYYY? MINUS ALL THE STARS. ALL OF THEM.

This is supposed to be Mandarin Green Orange Ginger. All I get from it is ginger. It’s such a shame, as the formula is fantastic. It’s very, very moisturizing. Were it any variety but ginger I would’ve loved it. I may have to try the Vanilla Coconut variety.

Beeju: Okay yeah beside her obvious hatred for all things ginger, I loved it. It feels amazing, smells amazing, and is easily one of my most favorite items ipsy has ever sent. I NEED THE REST OF THIS LINE.

The Verdict

D Lys: I was not a big fan of this month’s bag. Ginger products two months in a row makes me a sad blogger.

Beeju: I actually liked the bag this month though it wasn’t my favorite overall. I loved the balm and I’m excited to try the mascara. Here’s hoping the bags get better, ipsy seems to be on a bit of a downward spiral as of late.

  1. I got the same bag this month too! The Klorane dry shampoo was the standout for me. I have already ordered a full size one!

    • It seems like this was the most common bag variation this month.

      I wish my bag would’ve arrived a week earlier than it did, the dry shampoo would’ve been perfect to use down in the Caribbean. I wound up just washing my hair around three times a day…>_>

        • They absolutely will… ipsy is one of the most popular subs here in the US. Honestly the bag is probably one of the only things I really like about the sub itself. I hope ipsy comes over soon, shame the UK doesn’t have anything like it. :<
