Hello! Hope you're doing well. I'm sad to see Saturday already come to a close; I wish I had another long weekend like I did last week. It's getting harder and harder to wake up every day and go to work, but hopefully things will improve soon since my husband and I are both in the market for new jobs! We might look into working part-time and then using the rest of our time to pursue our passions (me crafts, he streaming videogame playing).
This is going to be the unboxing and review of my August 2014 Ipsy subscription! I love Ipsy; it's only $10 a month, shipping included, and I feel like I always get my money worth! $10 for a beauty surprise every month? Yes, please!
This month, Ipsy really wanted me to ruin the surprise; they kept sending me e-mails saying I can "sneak peek" at what I was getting in my Glam Room. Isn't part of the fun of these subscription boxes the surprise? It's bad enough I have to be careful when I'm on social media so I don't get spoilers! Unfortunately, through my Instagram browsing, I did catch a glimpse of the bag and a few products. At least I didn't know that I was getting those items for sure.
The theme for this month's bag is "Beauty Schooled", which is always popular with subscription/theme boxes this time of year.
Apparently, this mascara has "triple black" pigments. It also has something called "Hairdensyl", which sounds kind of made up, that is a "complex blend of proteins and ammino acids". This mascara also has honey extract, which is cool, and a lot of marine stuff because beauty seems to come from the sea these days. The full size retails for $22, so this 0.1fl oz sample is worth $5.50.
In my bag I got four other samples, bringing the grand total to five products (which is the norm; getting any less is disappointing, getting anymore is amazing).
Because I need more lip balms in my life, the next item I got in my bag was...
Finally, I got a travel-size bottle of the Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk.
And that's my August 2014 Ipsy bag! I got five products: two full size and three deluxe sample sized and the total value of my bag is $31.70, which is three times what I paid (though it's only $20.45 without the Pores No More which I still can't accept as an $11 value). I'm happy with this bag, especially with the Perversion sample, and I look forward to September.
Thanks for reading! <3
