July Ipsy Bag – Hot Summer Nights

A photo posted by Lara (@knobbygirl) on

July’s theme is “Hot Summer Nights”…and that’s pretty accurate here in Texas…it’s hot as fuck 24 hours a day. Oh, oh those summer nights…

Is the design on this ipsy bag a repeat? I swear I’ve seen it before…or am I just losing my mind?

Let’s see what i’ve received…Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in “No Filter” (a bizarre greyish lavender); theBalm Cosmetics Meet Matt(e) Trimony Eye Shadow in “Matt Moskowitz” (dark matte maroon – reminiscent of Manischewitz); J. Cat Beauty Perfect Duo Brow Pencil in “Dark Brown” (YES – always ready to try new brow pencils…until someday I can scrape up enough cash for micro blading); Vasanti Cosemtics Eye Shadow Brush (meh); and Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre (I’ve gotten this before, but still haven’t tried it).

The products don’t seem all that summery, but they are definitely products for a night out, so I get it.

September Ipsy Bag – Face Fashion

/

“Face Fashion” – is “face” being used as a verb or a descriptive noun? I am so confused…am I being told to look toward fashion or being advised that these products are fashion for my face???

In any case, all of the products in this month’s ipsy bag are for my face: NYX Cosmetics ipsy eye Shadow Trio (LOVE these limited edition colors); Evelyn Iona Cosmetics Cream Blush in “ASH” (Looks pink to me); J. Cat Beauty #MOTD Waterproof Slide on Pencil for Eyes in “Bronze” (cool color, but UGH – waterproof); ACURE Argan Oil Cleansing Toilettes; and Crown Brush Oval Concealer Brush (I was hoping for a lip brush).

The bag this month…so sophisticated! I’m adoring the bronze pattern.

August Ipsy Bag – Prep School

/

School started up yesterday, so Ipsy’s August theme is fitting – “Prep School”. (Ugh, I was SO not a prep – give me black eyeliner or give me death.)

Inside this month’s cute houndstooth bag: La Fresh Eco-Beauty Good Night. Night Cream; Skone Cosmetics Luxe Doubler Eye/Lip Pencil in “Wine” (how has no one ever though of this before???); Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Ginseng + Biotin Volumizer; Noyah Natural Lipstick in “Desert Rose”; and Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in “Elegantly Wasted” (eh, ok).

I also finally got my j. cat Beauty Hydrating Lip Stain – points!

November Ipsy Bag – Girl Meets Glitter

/

I got my ipsy bag on Friday, so sorry for the delay!

November’s bag is “Girl Meets Glitter” and I totally LOVE the glittery plastic bag from Forever 21 Cosmetics. I haven’t stepped foot in a Forever 21 in over a decade…maybe not since the 90s?

Inside my bag: Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Eye Base in “Submission”, a creamy gold taupe; J. Cat Beauty Lip Paint in “Red Potion”Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Argan Oil Volume Shine Hairspray; Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil in “Ultra Orchid”; and TEMPTU S/B Highlighter in “Pink Pearl” – and now I have 2 of these and have no idea what to do with them.

This is a pretty decent bag, but none of the products seem to go together. Gold eye shadow base with purple eye liner and red lipstick? Maybe if I was Lady Gaga…
