August Ipsy Bag

make up monday new

It’s ipsy bag time! Red lips


My bag came in Friday so I had a chance to try out the products a little bit before this post.

So let’s dive right in:

Pore No More by Dr. Brandt: Full size retails for $45


This stuff works great for filling in pores but the smell is a little medicinal which I am not a big fan of. The smell does go away pretty quick though but for $45 I am not sure if I will buy a full size.

Coastal Scents Forever Blush in Fresh (left) & Elegant (right): Full sizes retail for $3.98



These blushes are so pretty and for the price you really can’t beat it.  They go on beautifully and the color pay off is really good.  Definitely will look into getting some of these.

Absolute Lip Balm by Nicka K: Duo retails for $5.99


This smells like grape candy which I happen to like that scent but if you don’t this may not be for you. The verdict is still out on how moisturizing it is though.

Lord & Berry Silk Kajal Eye Liner: Full size retails for $16.00


As you can see I could literally rub this pretty much right off. I have used it twice and both times by about 2-3 hours it was pretty much gone or I had raccoon eyes. Confused smile 

Red lips

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara: Full size retails for $22 (right now it comes with a eye primer)



I did not think I was going to like this mascara but I really do. My only complaint is it did transfer just a little bit on my eye lid other then that I love the formula and the brush.

Me and Mr. Scary Mask wish you a happy Makeup Monday!!

  1. Oh! You got the grape lip balm! I'm a big fan of the apple green one and now I'm thinking about getting that one too :) Have you ever tried out Vain Pursuits btw? I think they do smthg similar to ipsy but more specifically for skincare?

    1. I have never heard of Vain Pursuits. Will have to check them out :)
