August ipsy Review

What are my favorites in the August ipsy makeup bag?

FYI: Ipsy is a monthly makeup bag subscription.

This month, I received NYX Professional Makeup Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam, IT Haircare 12-in-one Amazing Leave-In Treatment, Dermelect ‘ME’ Peptide Infused Lacquer in Unscripted, Pacifica Sundreams Lotus Infused Bronzer in Sunkissed, and Lory & Berry Maxi matte Crayon Lipstick in Intimacy.

My favorite three items this month are the following:

NYX Professional Makeup Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam

NYX Professional Maekup Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator Ipsy August 2016

This is a great highlighter. I like the color and how it looks on my skin. The product is pigmented and easy to apply. I like wearing this when I go to work or when I go out at night. This is versatile product and I recommend it for daily use.

It Haircare 12-in-one Amazing Leave-in Treatment

This is a fantastic product! I use a pea-size amount and distribute it evenly into damp hair. My hair feels and smells amazing afterward. According to the label, the product claims the following:

  1. Repairs dry, damaged hair
  2. Protects from split ends & breakage
  3. Shiny & healthy hair
  4. Transforms frizz to silk
  5. Maximum heat protection
  6. Seals and protects hair
  7. Removes tangles
  8. Restores natural body
  9. Abyssinian Oil for shiny hair
  10. Fuses silk amino acids
  11. Protects your color
  12. Transforms brittle hair

For background information about my hair, the tips are colored and were previously bleached. Therefore, I occasionally experience split ends and dryness. But overall, my strands are typically non-frizzy, straight, and thick. This product helped my hair feel smoother, silkier, and more healthy-looking.

This sample is also huge and can last several months!

Lory & Berry Maxi matte Crayon Lipstick in Intimacy

Lord and Berry Ipsy August 2016

I love wearing lipstick, lip stains, lip balms, lip crayons, etc. I wear lip color almost every day. My daily makeup routine is plain, so I like wearing colorful lips to make my face look brighter. When applied, the lip color resembles the natural color of my lips, except enhanced. The lip crayon has a matte finish and the color is not long-lasting like it is claimed. Overall, the color pigmentation is impressive and the lip crayon is good for everyday wear.

The other  two products in the bag were the following:
Dermelect ‘ME’ Peptide Infused Lacquer in Unscripted

Dermelect Nail Laquer Ipsy August 2016

This is nail polish is a beautiful shade. I  like the polish, but it’s not my favorite this month.

Pacifica Sundreams Lotus Infused Bronzer in Sunkissed

Pacifica Bronzer Ipsy August 2016

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of bronzer, but this is a pretty shade. I would probably give this to my sister, who likes wearing bronzer more.

Ultimately, I really liked this month’s makeup bag and was certainly one of the best bags I’ve received so far. I can’t wait for next month. Style By Sis hopes you found this review helpful. Good luck on your makeup journey!
