It’s the middle of the month again, which means my Ipsy glam bag and other beauty subscriptions will be popping into my mailbox. Today, I’m going to be talking about what I got in my Ipsy bag for August. The theme for this month is “prep school” and I’m guessing the general theme was “back to the basics” so many people received brushes, liners, glosses, etc. Things that are simple, yet glamorous for the school year. I will admit that getting school related things makes me feel anxious and brings back horrible memories of tests, but that’s another topic for another day.
If you’re unfamiliar with Ipsy, they’re a beauty subscription that costs $10 per month that sends out 4-5 deluxe samples or full sized items based on your beauty profile. They typically have a pretty great variety of products that are sent out. I will link my referral code at the end of the post, but please don’t feel pressured to use it. I just leave it there in case anyone wants to sign up and give me some points in the process.
This month, I actually received a lot of full sized items, which is always exciting!
Marc Anthony Nourishing Argan Oil Treatment: This is a deluxe sample size, but in terms of hair oils, there’s a lot in this sample. I was really happy to see this in my bag because I use an oil of some sort in my hair everyday. I have naturally curly and frizzy hair, so oils are a bit essential to my hair care routine.
Pencil Me In Cosmetics Liner in “Boysenberry” This is a full sized liner, and it’s more of a bluish-purple color…or a blurple type of shade. Eh, I swatched this already and while the color is pretty, it didn’t swatch too smoothly. I don’t tend to wear many blue shades on my eyes because I feel it looks weird with my eye color. I might end up passing this on to someone.
Hikari lip gloss in “Salsa” I have received quite a few Hikari items in the past, and I do enjoy their brand as a whole! This lip gloss is a very pretty shade of red, and we all know how I am about my reds. This is another full sized product, and I can’t wait to try it out!
Skone Cosmetics Liner in “Wine” This is the first time I’ve ever gotten anything from this brand! This is another full sized item. At first, I wasn’t thrilled because I have a lot of wine shades in my lip liner collection already, but then I saw this one doubles as an eye liner as well! I’ve actually been wanting a wine shade of liner because I don’t personally feel comfortable putting things designated for the lips near my eyes. It’s just a personal preference. Okay, it’s actually because the last time I put something lip related near my eye I freaked out all day and was convinced I was going to get an infection of some sort #dontjudgeme Anyway, I’m excited about this product and I can’t wait to include it in a few fall looks!
Marsk Pro Line Shadow Brush I know that some find getting brushes to be annoying, but I love it! I am constantly getting brushes dirty because I wear so many different colors, so having more is always a necessity. That and I have discovered some awesome brush lines through Ipsy, including Luxie brushes. From what I felt, this brush is dense and will be ideal for packing on shadow onto the lid.
Well, that is everything that I got in my Ipsy bag this month! What did you get? Chat with me in the comment section if you want!
Have a good day, lovelies.
Stalk and talk to me:

This looks so good! I’m waiting for Ipsy to ship to the UK because I’ve heard nothing but good things!
Receiving brushes is the BEST! I’m with you – I use up so many brushes, I like an endless supply, lol!
Yes! I feel like I use so many darker colors that I just need at least 100 brushes to get me through a few weeks >.< I await the day when someone invents the self cleaning eye brush…because I'm lazy 😛
I love Ipsy and I hope that one day they expand to the UK as well!
Haha omg I probably would have freaked out about the maybe-infection too. That’s prefect though so now you have one just for eyes! I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee using a wine colored liner in the Fall! Some people say it can make you look sickly but I kinda like that “undead” look as long as I’ve done a REALLY good job concealing my undereyes lol. I like to use the NYX Jumbo pencil thing in Rust to line my lower lashes only and then I typically pair that with a cool toned gray/black smokey eye orrrrrrrr something from the Revealed 2. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Great bag! I got everything the same as you except for getting a night cream instead of the brush. I would have so rather had the brush! I love getting brushes too! ❤ I haven't tried anything out yet but I will this week. I hope to get my post up sometime soon. 🙂 xo
Let’s be real, it’s obvious at this point that I do not mind looking sickly lol. I totally forget that Nyx has other jumbo eye pencils other than the black and white ones lol….so now I probably need rust as well.
That night cream looks really interesting! I can’t wait to see your post and thoughts 🙂
Yeah I just put it on tonight after I got out of the shower. It’s quite moisturizing. I will have more to say about it in my Ipsy post which I want to get up toward the end of this week. Tomorrow I’m trying to get up my Boxycharm post. 🙂
Bahaha OMG I just laughed so hard! It’s a good look for you though so totally 100% get you some rust, girl 😉
