ipsy August 2013 Bag


Hi everyone!

I was finally able to stop by my apartment to pick up the new August ipsy bag! Looking at all the sneak peeks online have gotten me quite excited!

ipsy August 2013 Bag

It's back to school season and that theme is clearly reflected here! I'm loving the purple and gold combination! Glamour indeed!

#1. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick - Anarchy
Urban Decay's Pigment Infusion System™ delivers insane color payoff with creamy shine, Maxi-Lip™ plumps and nourishing oils leave lips cushiony soft. Get the color you crave. Addictive to apply (and even more addictive to wear), this creamy formula glides on without dragging or skipping, hugs every curve and gives you a BIG laydown of color. There's a wide range of colors - from gorgeous nudes to bold brights, there’s something for everyone. Our luxe, custom-designed gunmetal tube (lined in dark purple) features organically shaped facets that practically beg to be touched. You’ll want to keep pulling it out of your bag—whether it’s time to reapply or not. 
This is probably the most anticipated item for me. I have swatched these lipsticks at an UD counter before and they made a fine impression on me. Plus I have been on a fuchsia trend lately, so Anarchy is perfect for me!

#2. Michael Todd Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub
The Jojoba Charcoal Gentle Exfoliating Facial Scrub is formulated using the powers of Jojoba Wax Beads and Activated Charcoal. This mask effectively removes dead skin, impurities and toxins, but is gentle enough for sensitive and acne prone skin types. Jojoba Wax Beads provide gentle exfoliation without leaving microlacerations on delicate skin. Highly absorbent Activated Charcoal penetrates deeply into pores to draw out impurities and toxins. Also refines texture and encourages skin renewal, leaving skin smooth and refreshed. 
My second most anticipated item! I have never tried charcoal skin care before, so I am most excited to try this out! Hope my sensitive skin agrees! I've used only once with no negatives yet!

#3. Pacifica Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream
The Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream hydrates, primes, illuminates, and perfects leaving a sheer bare skin finish. Specialized mineral pigments instantly adjusts to your skin shade allows one color to work for many and can be built up for just the right amount of coverage. Your skin will look natural, dewy, youthful and radiant without looking like you are wearing heavy make-up. 
Another BB cream on the Western market! I'm interested to try and compare to others! The first application is nice. It gives a great light dewy finish. Thank you ipsy for introducing me to Pacifica. This brand has some lovely items!

Pixi Lash Booster Mascara - No. 2 Blackest Black

Pixi Lash Booster Mascara - No. 2 Blackest Black


#4. Pixi Lash Booster Mascara - No. 2 Blackest Black
This unique mascara truly boosts your lashes, giving them a "push-up" effect that lasts all day. The dense, rich formula coats lashes with maximum pigment, for long-lasting full color and the cone-shaped brush coats each lash evenly. Long lasting, smudge-free and waterproof. 
A girl can never have enough mascaras ( or blushes, or lipsticks, or shoes...). Unfortunately I'm not seeing much improvement with my lashes, but that's just the first application! We'll see how this little guy will perform!

#5. Mica Beauty Cosmetics Shimmer Powder - 17 Bronze
MicaBeauty Mineral Eyeshadows are extremely gentle, free of preservatives, chemicals, dyes, talc, oils, and other fillers. With this unique formula, the eyeshadows will look ultra smooth and stay put for hours without creasing or pulling the delicate eye area. Can be mixed with clear lip-gloss, clear mascara, and clear nail polish to add pigment to lips, eyelashes and nails! 
I already have a Mica Shimmer Powder in Earth from the April ipsy bag, which was a pretty earth toned pink color! Bronze is just as shimmery and pigmented as Earth. It can be great for a Summer or Bronze Goddess look!

And that's it! What are your go to products for the beach? Do you have a signature summer scent?

Until next time,

  7. You have an awesome bag. I wish I would get the UD's revolution lipstick everybody is raving about. I got the Pacifica BB cream as well. As much as I love Pacifica products(especially their body butter), find the coverage is quite sheer. But overall, I'm happy with my bag this month.
