It’s almost the end of the month so that means that it’s time for the August Ipsy Bag Reveal. This month had a few changes for the Ipsy bag so if you’re wondering what those were, and want to see what was in my Ipsy bag, make sure to check out the video below. You can also keep scrolling to see my August Ipsy Bag Reveal.
Ipsy cost $10/month and you get 4 – 5 beauty samples that run from mini to deluxe to full-size. Products can be from drugstore, independent, or high end brands and can also be cruelty free and non-cruelty free. To cancel your Ipsy subscription you need to do so by 3pm EST on the last day of the month and you HAVE to click on the link in the cancel confirmation email that you will receive.
Bag & Theme
The theme for August’s Ipsy Bag was “Good Vibes Only”. I don’t know if the contents hold to the theme but the bag surely does. The first change for the August Ipsy bag was that for the month of August there were different bag variations sent out. Now I’m not talking contents, there’s always been variation there, but the actual bag itself. There were three different bags that were sent out and I received the “Wild & Free” bag, the other two were “Good Vibes Only” and “Peace Love Lipstick”. I actually had the sneak peek up up on my Facebook page so for information like that make sure you like and follow the page here.
Paula Dorf Brow Pencil
The first item in my August Ipsy Bag is the Paula Dorf Universal Brow Pencil in Taupe. I believe I already have the full-size of this brow pencil so I’ll either be passing this on to a friend or popping it into a giveaway!
Make Up For Ever Mascara
The second item in my August Ipsy Bag is the Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash Mascara in, I’m assuming, black. I actually saw one of the YouTubers I watch talk about this mascara before I received my bag so when I saw it in there I was super excited. I’ll actually be reviewing this on the blog in a few weeks!
The third item in my August Ipsy Bag is the Catrice Highlighting Powder in Champagne Campaign and this is a full-size item! This is another product that I saw a YouTuber rave about and I was super excited to see in the bag. However, if you watch the video above you’ll notice that when you swatch it you get good pigmentation on your finger but there’s hardly any when you swatch it. I’m going to try it with different brushes, wet application, etc. to see if it gets any better and will pop up a review in a few weeks as well.
Pacifica Blush Duo
The fourth item in my August Ipsy Bag is the Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo which I totally thought was a full-size product but it turns out that it actually isn’t! If you watch the video you’ll see the size of this thing and will possibly feel my astonishment as well. Both of these shades are very pretty but they are very powdery and of the shades constantly dusts away to almost nothing.
First Aid Beauty Cleanser
The last item in my August Ipsy Bag is the First Aid Beauty Deep Cleanser with Red Clay. This is a foaming cleanser so once you add water to it it’ll give you a nice deep clean. This is meant for normal to oily skin, don’t ask me why I received it, however since it’s for unclogging pores I’ll use it as a once a week deep cleanser for my pores.
Final Thoughts on August Ipsy Bag Reveal
Honestly, I felt like this month’s bag didn’t fit the theme or really have a cohesiveness that last month did. That being said I am very excited for several of the products in the bag, I loved the way the bag itself looked, and I can’t wait to review some of these new-to-me products!
