My bag:

 

eQ5EP3H.png

 

I'm pretty happy with it! The only thing I'm not too enthused by is the conditioner, but I guess since in my quiz I said that I have frizzy hair and that it tangles easily, they decided to send me something that targets those things. I haven't tried NYX products, but I'm just happy the texture is matte instead of glossy. I hope they send it to me in the "soft spoken" shade because the other two they're offering are kind of too bold.

^ Your bag is kind of my perfect bag right now based on the combos of glam  bags I'm seeing people posting.

 

I got:

- MUFE primer (it's hydrating and I have oily skin, plus the sample is TINY)

- Temptu Bronzer (REALLY annoyed about this as I have blush and highlighter checked in my quiz but not bronzer. There were many other options I could have gotten instead of this)

- Beau Gachis Eyebrow brush (this is okay) 

- Dead Sea mask (will use but not particularly exciting)

- Starlooks eyeliner pencil (okay)

 

Not really like this bag at all. 2/5 This is the second so-so bag I've received in a row.

I'm getting:

 

-Illamasqua Precision Ink eyeliner. I'm normally not big on liquid liner, but ones with brushes like this I can usually manage to apply halfway decent so I'll try it.

 

-Pixi Blush Highlight Duo. Happy with this! This was something I was hoping to receive so yay.

 

-Mememe Powder Brush. Love getting brushes.

 

-Nourish Organics Rosehip Body Oil. I've never tried a body oil before and I like the brand so yay.

 

-Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo. I so wanted to get this product as well so I'm really excited.

 

This is actually a really good bag for me. It has a good variety not too much makeup and products in excited for

Pretty happy with my bag. Is the bag they show the color we're getting? If so I got the mint & really like it.

 

Illamaqua liquid eyeliner- super excited! First product from this brand and I've been into trying liquid liner recently.

 

Me Me Me Loose Powder Brush - Super Excited! I love getting brushes & was hoping for this.

 

Be a Bombshell Baked Bronzer- happy to get it. If it doesn't work for me as a bronzer, it looks like it might be a nice eyeshadow shade.

 

ModelCo. Lip Laquer lip gloss- iffy about this. I'm a gloss girl so I have no problem with glosses but several of you have received it in the past and hated it. Also depends on the color. I don't like anything bold.

 

Organic Surge Lavender Meadow hand and nail Cream- the one item I hate. Don't like getting lotions or hair products. I also suffer from eczema and avoid scented lotions on my hands.

 

All in all I'm very happy with my bag.

Like usual my bag is just ok. 2 of the 5 items I've already tried in my sub boxes (the concealer, which I love so I don't mind another) and the zit cream, blah).

post-93138-0-88886600-1457369207_thumb.png

Never really thrilled with BAB stuff, they call this a bronzer but it appears to be a blush. Either way, I'll give it a try.

I feel like I get too many eyeliners from Ipsy, at least the color is unique. But this item has been around the sub box circuit too.

And another lip gloss. It's just ok.

 

I would have loved to try so many different items. Oh well.

I really like my bag this month:  mint green bag, first aid beauty, manna kadar eyeshadow, illamasqua liquid eye liner, pixie blush duo and alterna caviar volume hair spray.

I'm getting:

-Illamasqua Precision Ink in Abyss (while I'm on black eyeliner overload, I've had good experience with this brand)

-Pixi by Petra Blush Duo in Rose Gold (looks pretty)

-Manna Kadar Eye Shadow in Fantasy (meh. Another piece of clutter)

-First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Serum (I just finished up a deluxe sample of this from Sephora, and liked it enough that I was considering buying the FS, so this is good timing!)

-Alterna Hair Care Caviar Anti-Aging Volume Mist (was hoping I would get this!)

 

Overall, a good month. Only thing I could do without is the eyeshadow. I typically reach for palettes over singles, there's nothing original about this shade, and I have not had good luck with Manna Kadar's lip products or face products. Plus I've been having some eye allergy issues lately, and powdered shadow seems to be exacerbating the issue.

 

My kvetching aside, this is a really good bag for me. I returned to ipsy last month, after over a year away. I initially unsubscribed because it seemed every bag was full of private-label-made-in-China mascaras and lip glosses and drugstore hair spray, but they seem to have upped their game considerably. I've been more impressed with these past two bags than I have with my recent Birchboxes.

Bag twins! I never seem to find a bag twin, but here you are! 

 

Also, is everyone's bag page showing the mint green as their bag? Because I feel like that's the case, like when they send the May 2015 ones, it showed the same bag for everyone but they varied?

@ yeah, my page is showing the mint bag. It does seem like that is the page display default, rather than a promise of which variant we'll receive.

I forgot to add, I got two of the items I wished for! I'm excited for the liner and dry shampoo! The Pixi blush/highlighter duo looks nice and I still use my bronzer from them from forever ago and LOVE it. Powder brush, I'm okay with. The one I have/currently use is a bit scratchy so I hope this one is softer on my face. And the body oil, meh? I'm okay with it but I'm also scared of smearing oil on myself.

Heres what I got in my bag, not so excited about yet another brush but its a different brand so hopefully its better than the 4 other brushes theyve sent me (Ive seriously went 1 month without getting some sort of brush since I subscribed)

SUPER excited about the eyeliner, I dont really use bronzer but I guess Ill have to give it a try. I sorta like all the variety of different products I tend to get! Im really liking this bag!

I hope I get the bag with the mint zipper pull but I wouldnt mind if I got either bag, if there are variants

I'm getting

 

NYX suede lipstick, fingers crossed for mauve shade, Ipsy knows by now that I don't do bold lipstick.

 

Manna Kadar eyeshadow, sigh* I don't ever want eyeshadow.

 

Crown small chisel brush, always happy for brushes But what is this one for lol?

 

Temptu Bronzer, I still haven't opened the highlighter they sent me from this brand. I'll have to try them out.

 

Global Dead Sea mask, always happy for masks

 

This bag is at least 2/5 for me. I really wanted dry shampoo! I'll probably trade the eyeshadow.

Ugh can't wait to see what I get! I had to cancel because they bumped me up to yearly without telling me so not only did I lose my early access but my cute little hand cream that I redeemed points for is gone now too :( at least I got the points back though! I really really hope I get that Illamasqua liner and mellow blush.

Here's what I got this month!

 

Beau Gachis Paris Eyeshadow Brush- I'm always happy with brushes!

 

Pixi Blush- I'm actually running low on blush so this is a happy surprise. I tend to lean more towards peach or nude blushes but this one doesn't look awful. 

 

Nyx Cosmetics Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick- I like matte lipsticks but I'm not thrilled with the color selections. 

 

Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Miracle Multiplying Volume Mist- I love Alterna products! Ipsy sent me the CC Cream before and I've been hooked ever since!

 

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Fantasy- This may be a very useful eyeshadow color for me. 

 

Overall I like my bag product wise. I'm a little unsure about some of the shades but that's about it. I'm a little sad though. I'm dying to try Colour Pop but can't seem to get Ipsy to send me anything from them. I think I'm just gonna place an order on their website soon.

I'm just ok with my bag this month. I'm getting:

 

Starlooks eyeliner

Marc Anthony blow dry cream

Pixi blush duo

Nyx liquid suede

Me Me Me loose powder brush

 

I love a good eyeliner, but I've got so many eyeliners from sub boxes that I almost hate getting them anymore. Next, I never blow dry my hair so the Marc Anthony is useless. On the plus side, I love blush and brushes and I love the NYX liquid suede lippies. I'm just hoping for a color that I don't already have.

Make Up For Ever Primer

eSalon Leave In Conditioner

Vera Mona shadow

Pixi by Petra blush

First Aid Beauty Ultra repair hydrating serum

 

I try not to be unhappy since it's $10 and is usually way over the value of the bag but I really don't want anything that I'm getting this month. And my birth month boo :(

I'm pretty happy with my bag this month; they're all items that (theoretically) I will use, and I have some ColourPop highlighters already that I love so I have no doubt it'll be the same for this one!

 

Starlooks luxe eye pencil (black)

ModelCo lip lacquer lip gloss

Me me me loose powder brush

Global Beauty Care Dead Sea mask

ColourPop highlighter (Wisp)

I just realized that the same Pixi Blush in Rose Gold that is being sent out this month is also made in a color called Peach Honey. It's beautiful and I wants it. Why no multiple color variations with this item Ipsy?! Meanwhile as I stare down the swatch and the possibility of getting my NYX lipstick in the color Pink Lust. Lets be honest does that color really look good on anybody? Maybe a black girl could wear it well. People with dark skin tones are able to wear bright colors and look amazing. Meanwhile I end up looking like Frankenstein's monster. Big lips + pale skin + bright pink lipstick =  :sick: I'll look like a cartoon character and not in a good Jessica Rabbit kind of way. More like a Shannon from Despicable Me 2 kind of way.

I wear bright and dark colors alike (full spectrum, from bright purple to black) on my lips and I think it looks great on me. I am ghost white too. I think it just depends on who you ask. Personally, I don't ask anybody because I don't care what they think. I wear it because I love it and the people who criticize me for it and go suck rocks. [:

my bag

Beau Gache eyeshadow brush

Marc Anthony Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco 3 Day Smooth Perfect Blow Dry Cream

Ofra Cosmetics Green Go Eyeliner

Nyx Liquid Suede lippie

Temptu Warm Glow Bronzer

 

What a bag of fail, Ipsy. Out of all the choices its like they threw whats left over into a bag and said, here Amanda you look like you need to buy a blowdryer and maybe you'd look prettier with green lines on your eyes and some sparkly bronzer! Chances are I'll probably get that bright pink lipstick shade too, that'll make my eyes POP.

Here is my bag

 

-Organic Surge hand & nail cream (never heard of this brand)

-Vera Mona eye shadow in clover

-NYX Liquid Suede in Kitten Heels

-Beau Gachis brush

-Mellow Bronzer

 

I'm happy with my bag and look forward to trying these. I'll pass the NYX liquid lipstick to someone else since it's not my shade. It's too red for me. This bag is way better then the few bags I got last year when I subbed. I felt like all I got then was left over bags. So far after re-subbing I've been luckier with last month's bag and this month's.

SUPER happy that they sent me the NYX in the Soft Spoken shade. This is only my second Ipsy bag but so far it looks like they're actually listening to my preferences because they would know not to send me either of the other two shades if they are.

I got my bag today. The MeMeMe brush is soft but feels a little cheap? Which I'm not against, I'm an equal opportunity brush user. The Illamasqua is incredible in pigment and wear. Unlike the Eyeko in my glossybox, this liner STAYS. I'm trading the body oil stuff for a NYX suede lippie. The Living Proof is huge to me for a sample size and I'm in love! And the Pixi blush/highlighter duo is gorgeous. I think it's beautiful and I'm ready for this golden glow on my face!

 

Edit: I got the coral/pink bag. Meh.

    • I like Aveda Oil Control Lotion. It hydrates and absorbs oil. And it smells delicious. Be careful not to over wash your skin, no more than twice a day. Drying it out will make your skin produce more oil, not less.
    • Interesting. They have found that our bodies produce a substance similar to THC, especially during childbirth. Since marijuana can cause short-term memory loss, and during childbirth is when you'd want some of that. I keep hemp oil for my dog's skin and sometimes I make myself a scrub out of it sugar or salt. Whatever I have on hand.
    • Nice empties @EdithS2!! Great work! Look froward to hearing about your empties in September. I love the fact that you are setting bigger, seasonal goals for yourself! Thank you for posting about it and being such an inspiration to others!
    • Hi all, I underwent a  liposuction surgery few weeks ago. However, I am worried regarding how to maintain it. I have heard a lot of people say that, even though this is a permanent procedure, it’s results can deteriorate if not maintained well. So I have been looking for some tips and suggestions on how to maintain myself and I read this article, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/blog/liposuction/5-tips-for-maintaining-liposuction-results/. They are suggesting some tips like having a healthy diet, maintaining adequate body fluid levels, eating meals at proper time. It is said that regular exercise is the best way to maintain liposuction results. What do you all have to suggest? Has anyone here undergone a liposuction? And how did you maintain it? Looking forward to your replies. Thanks in advance.
