Ipsy Bag: August 2014

It's Ipsy time again YAY! I got this on my birthday (the 13th) so what a nice birthday gift! The theme is Beauty Schooled. The bag is cute this month it's white with orange polka dots. This is what I received in mine:

-Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
-Dr. Brandt pores no more pore refiner primer
-Klorane Extra Gentle Dry Shampoo Flying Solo Eyeshadow: Half Naked
-Jersey Shore Sun Mongongo Nutrient Dense anti-aging lip conditioner

I can't wait to try the Urban Decay mascara! I have already used the primer, it's OK and smells strongly like tea tree oil which is used as an anti-bacterial. The eyeshadow was a miss for me, kinda powdery and I would compare it to e.l.f. The lip balm kinda has a Burt's Bees vibe to it...I like anything that's organic. It has a very citrus scent and i'm liking it so far. Last but not least the dry shampoo, I haven't ever heard of this brand but I am super excited to try it out!

Softilps Cubes 5 in 1 Lip Care

The Softlips Cubes are a pretty new version of lip balms. I have read that they were meant to be similar to the eos ones we all know and love! They come in 3 flavors: Vanilla Bean, Pomegranate Blueberry and Fresh Mint. They are clear so no need for swatching. The packaging is an acrylic type plastic with a screw on lid. These contain spf 15, shea butter and vitamins A, C and E. They cost around $3.50 each, I am seeing them pop up at more stores every week.

As you can tell, the Softlips cube is somewhat smaller than the eos sphere. I really like these, they are moisturizing, protect the lips and the flavors are great. Will you be trying these?
