Ipsy Review – August 2014

Hi everyone!!

August has been a super busy month for me, so I haven’t been able to post as often as I’d like!  Hopefully, September will be a better month for crafts and blog posts!

I’ve been an Ipsy subscriber for three months now, and August is my favorite month yet!

DSCN2792It’s always a great day when I see this shiny, pink envelope in my mailbox!

DSCN2806August’s theme is “Beauty Schooled.”  It’s a cute theme for “back to school” time!

DSCN2800Here are all my goodies!!

  • Manna Kadar Cosmetics – Sheer Glo
  • Urban Decay – 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil
  • Coastal Scents – Shadow Palette Sample
  • Bee All Natural – Organic Lip Balm

I’m going to apologize in advance for my blurry pictures!  I don’t know what was going on with my camera, but it wouldn’t focus on the products.

DSCN2810Manna Kadar –  Sheer Glo

I’m not sure how much use I (or anyone else) will get out of shimmer lotion. 


I’m really excited to try this mask! 

My friend, Lindsey, loves all the GLAMGLOW masks and has been telling me to try them for quite some time!

I haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but I’m hoping to sometime in the next few days.

DSCN2841Urban Decay – 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil – Plushie

I love Urban Decay eye liners!  They are so smooth and have fantastic pigmentation!

Plushie is a smoky purple, so I’m not sure how often I’ll use it!  I’m still excited to get it though!

DSCN2827Coastal Scents – Shadow Palette Sample

Shadow colors (clockwise starting with the top left):

  • Peach Fuzz
  • Sea Spray
  • Sand Dune
  • Deep Viridian

I don’t like this sample palette at all.  The packaging is very plain and unimpressive, and only two of these shadows are useful to me. 

DSCN2833Bee All Natural – Organic Lip Balm – Grapefruit

I am absolutely addicted to Burt’s Bees lip balm, so I’m pretty excited to try this product! 

Bee All Natural definitely won’t replace my Burt’s Bees, but I’m more than willing to give it a try! 

The grapefruit scent is a huge plus! I’ve been wanting to try the grapefruit Burt’s Bees for a long time, and now I don’t have to go out and buy it!  (Yes, I know it’s not exactly the same, but it will do!)

DSCN2800The Urban Decay eye liner and the GLAMGLOW mask make this bag worth it for me! These two products make the bag worth over $30!

I also really love the makeup bag for August!  It’s festive, fun, and perfect for pencils in your backpack!

What did you think of your August Ipsy?!
