Ipsy August – “Beauty Schooled”

It’s that time of the month again! This month’s theme is “Beauty Schooled”. There are many sources you can use to learn more makeup tips and reviews, from books to YouTube to blogs (wink, wink). There’s always more to learn!

I’m so happy they finally did a different shaped bag! Last time they switched it up was July 2013’s “Beach Beauty”. It’s a really cute orange and white polka dotted plastic material; although it’s not my fav bag I’m glad it’s something different and fun. Let’s get into what’s inside:

🌊Coastal Scents Forever Blush(sample duo; reg. $7.95)
This is a tiny sample of colors “Fresh”, a light peach-y color and “Elegant”, a dark pink shimmer color. These come in little pans that you can pop out of the plastic if you want to transfer them into a palette. There are 18 beautiful colors in the collection and they are actually 50% off right now til 8/22 on the coastal scents website!

🌾Dr. Brandt Pores No More ($45 for full size)
This is a pore refining primer for oil/combination skin and can be applied under or over your makeup. Primer is an important step in makeup application and a good one can help make your foundation look smooth and flawless. We were given a good sized sample especially for the hefty price of the full sized one. I haven’t tried this yet but I’ll keep you posted!

🌊Lord & Berry mini kajal kohl-liner(#1001 black silk)
This is a new brand to me that was established in Milan and describes itself as a fashion forward makeup brand. This eyeliner applies smoothly and easily and can also be smudged for a more smoky look.

🌾Absolute New York You’re The Balm in “Green Apple”($5.99 for duo)
This balm if from the Nicka K New York brand and on the website is only sold in duos; Green Apple with Grape & Strawberry with Bubblegum. This balm smells amazing and makes your lips soft and smooth.

🌊Urban Decay Perversion mascara($22 for full size)
This is the brand new mascara by UD so it’s cool that ipsters can try a deluxe sample of it. According to UD, it won’t clump at all and is made of a complex blend of proteins and amino acids to stimulate lash growth. We’ll see if this actually works!

This was an interesting blend of products and a unique bag! I love that some different brands were used as well. Can’t wait for next months ipsy! ❀ Michelle
