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
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:
- Repairs dry, damaged hair
- Protects from split ends & breakage
- Shiny & healthy hair
- Transforms frizz to silk
- Maximum heat protection
- Seals and protects hair
- Removes tangles
- Restores natural body
- Abyssinian Oil for shiny hair
- Fuses silk amino acids
- Protects your color
- 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
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
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
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!
