It's Ipsy time!!! When I saw this month's bag in the mail all I could think was, "I sure hope it's better than last month's!" I was still somewhat disappointed but at least it was a little more promising to the point where I will give Ipsy another chance for September.
Please excuse the horrible quality of this picture, my normal camera has been acting up
I have never splurged on mascara before, so when I got this in my bag I got all giddy inside. However once I tried it I couldn't tell a difference between the Urban Decay mascara and my everyday Covergirl mascara other than it clumps up really easily on the brush. I'll stick with my cheapo Covergirl.
// Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner & Primer
I don't have oily skin and I don't have large pores so all in all I saw no difference. I will say that my foundation went on a little smoother than normal however, but I think the medicinal smell of this product is a big part of what will keep me from buying it in the future. I just felt like I smelled like my grandma's medicine cabinet all day and that is no fun.
// Klorane Extra- Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
I got super de dooper excited when I found this in my bag. I have been wanting to try dry shampoo for a while now and couldn't wait to use this the next morning. I don't have anything to compare this to seeing as I have never tried dry shampoo before but I really liked this stuff! I was skeptical because fine straight hair and hair products don't always mix but in this case I was quite impressed.
// Jersey Shore Sun Mongongo Lip Conditioner
I mean it's chapstick... nothing too exciting. I like the fact that it smells like an Orange Julius and it goes on super smooth but again, it's chapstick...
// J. Cat Beauty Flying Solo Eye Shadow
I thought this would be more of an intense gold but once I put it on but it turned out to be a very pale, nudish gold... does that make any sense? It's actually quite pretty and good for everyday use but once again it's not so amazing that I would buy it once my sample runs out.
