Ipsy - August 2014

You're probably wondering why I'm posting late tonight and yes it's a bit unusual for me too but I recently arrived home from doing a bit of school supply shopping and guess what showed up in my mailbox? Ipsy! This month I was totally psyched mostly because my glam room was revealed to me earlier than expected and I just couldn't wait for my glam bag to show up. I love that the bag sort of mimics a pencil case which is great since school is almost in session! It's also no surprise that this month's theme is "Beauty Schooled". Check it out!

Now this is what I'm talking about! So far I don't spot a product that I'll be disappointed with. Sadly this is not one of my much pricier glam bags but I still did receive over $30 worth of products so I won't nag about it since the subscription only costs $10! I also did receive a full size item so I'm super happy about that for sure.

Free Your Mane Reviving Spray 
Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner
Jersey Shore Sun Mongongo Lip Conditioner
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
Lord & Berry Silk Kajal Kohl Eye Pencil

First up is the hairspray. I love anything for my hair as it's great to try out new products. This is a pretty decent size that I can travel around with. I've never heard of this brand before but I love the mellow smell this hairspray gives my hair. This is something I can definitely see myself purchasing in the long run since it's inexpensive.

Next up is the one and only "pores no more". I've been hearing and seeing a lot of hype about this product all over the blogger and fashion world. It's no surprise that such a great product is made by the famous Dr. Brandt. Even though it's mainly used as a foundation primer, I think I'll be using it as a base below my moisturizer, especially around my t-zone. Those pores sure can get ugly!

The lip balm wasn't necessarily a huge surprise for me since I usually consider a lip balm to be just a lip balm. I think I'm slightly wrong about this one though. Not only is this an organic lip balm, it's also an anti-aging lip conditioner and boy does this smell sweet! I'm glad to be introduced to yet another brand that I can already see myself indulging in. 

Now you all know that I love my mascara. Seriously, I can't live without it! And what's better than a deluxe sized mascara by a popular brand in your glam bag month after month? I surely can't think of anything. I've never tried this specific one before and the brush is quite the fluffy type so I'm not so sure if it'll work for me just yet. I still won't hesitate to enjoy it while it lasts!

Lastly is the eye pencil. I'm not your typically kohl kind of girl as I've finally transitioned from pencil to liquid. I gotta admit that this is a dark one which I don't mind at all. However I do mind that the size is so itty bitty. Depending on how careful I am, I can probably get quite a couple of uses out of this but I really do wish the size was slightly larger. However it's still a great product from another brand that I've never heard about.

Overall I love the new brands that I've discovered through Ipsy this month. I'm still proud to be a glam bag subscriber and I really hope I don't lose touch with this subscription anytime soon. It was such a great month and I hope next month can be even better, if that's even possible! :)
