Ipsy August 2016 Review

Ipsy is a makeup, tools, haircare, and skincare, beauty subscription. You receive samples, deluxe samples, & full size products with a makeup bag each month.

Ipsy is $10 a month with free shipping. Everyone does not receive the same thing. It is based on your profile/prefrences.

You can check them out HERE.

We pay for this subscription. If you read my Bag Reveal Post you know I’m a bit underwhelmed this month.



The August 2016 Bag. There are 2 variations of the bag this month.

These are the 2 options. Both are so cute!


Everything comes inside the bag.


Ciate London Paint Pot in Spinning Teacup. Value $15. I was surprised this was a full size and not a mini! It’s a pretty soft purple. This color is different than my bag reveal. I was actually wanting that color.


The Organic Pharmacy Rose Facial Cleansing Gel. 30 ml. Value $25.50. Rose and Rose Hip infused wash.

NYX Liquid Born To Glow Illuminator in Gleam. 13 ml. Value $5.41. This is some serious Illuminator. A little goes a long way! It’s pretty dark too.


Olive Natural Beauty Anti-Aging Facial Moisturizer. 1 oz. Value $19. I’ve tried Olive Natural lip balm and really liked it. So I’m actually ok with trying this out. It absorbs well without any greasy feeling.

Nomad Makeup Eyeshadow in Spice Market. Value $5? It looks like they only sell palettes. I love the color!


It’s buildable. This is about 4 swipes with the brush. Nomad Eyeshadow on the left, NYX Illuminator on the right.


Total Value $69.91. Not including the bag. Cost of the box $10. That’s an amazing value! Even though I was disappointed in my bag this month, one thing I noticed is that the size of these samples are great! It kind of makes up for it. ☺ Kind of..

I just feel like if you say you can put in prefrences and have some kind of control over what you receive then you should actually provide that for your subscribers. If you send random bags then we should know we have no control & you get what you get. The only thing that matches my prefrences this month is the eyeshadow.

If you’d like to check them out you can do that HERE.
