I know I’m a little bit behind with August’s Ipsy bag but things got in the way. However, I still figured I would share these great products with you all. I’ve also got a special treat in the coming days. A friend of mine received her first Ipsy bag during the month of August and agreed to do a review to share with you all! I’m excited to incorporate this into the blog later this week (and hopefully in the future!)
This month’s theme was Prep School!
Hey Lovelies, ipsy here, your one and only source to the best in beauty. Who? What? When? Where? Why? All the deets are in your August Glam Bag. You know you love it. xoxo, ipsy.

BWC – Beauty Without Cruelty
Premium Aromatherapy Leave-in Conditioner
Sample Size: 2 fl. oz / 59 ml
Full Size: 8.5 fl. oz / 250 ml
BWC Leave-in Conditioner maximizes your hairs luster, body, and manageability. This light, plant based formula provides all day protection from harsh environmental elements, chemical treatments and heat styling. Provitamin B5 and jojoba combined with premium aroma-therapeutic essential oils condition and protect. Works as effective, leave-in detangler for all hair types, especially chemically treated. Helps prevent split ends and control frizz. Will not dull or weight down your hair. Ideal for everyday use.
To Use: Apply a small amount evenly to clean, damp hair, working from the ends up. Do not rinse. Dry and style as usual. For best results, use after any BWC Shampoo and/or conditioner.
To be honest, I really do not like the smell of this leave-in conditioner (or other BWC products I’ve had). The smell reminds me of a chemical smell. However, I will give this a try and see if it does work for my hair. I’d love to have a great detangling product.
Hikari Lip Gloss
Merlot (Intense Red Mauve)
Sample Size: 4.6 g/0.16 oz
Full Size: **Full Sized Product**
Check out Hikari’s collection of gorgeous, high-shine matte lip glosses. With these high-pigment lip glosses you can wear them alone or layer them over your favorite lipstick to create intense new colors. They will give you the perfect sultry lip with just the right amount of shine! -ipsy.com
I’m not a person who wears dark lip colors. I’m all for the barely there, you lips but better colors. This one, however, is a beautiful color and is definitely wearable when layered thinly. Definitely something to keep in mind. However, again I am not a fan of the smell of the product. I’ve received some lip products that smelled amazing and that I couldn’t wait to try. This wasn’t one of them.
HydraGel Cream Blush
Sample Size: 3.15 g / 0.11 oz
Full Size: **Full Sized Product**
HydraGel is a revolutionary formula with hybrid gel technology. The ease of a powder with the fresh, natural look of a cream — HydraGel Blush makes you look like you’re blushing, not like you’re wearing blush. Formulated with beneficial ingredients Shea Butter, Avocado Butter and Jojoba Seed Oil to hydrate the skin while Lavender extract provides luminosity for a fresh, natural-looking flush of pure color. -ipsy.com
It is my first time trying a cream blush (that I can remember) and I love it. The color is beautiful and natural. When worn it gives you the natural flush look, as if you are just coming in from a cool Autumn stroll in the park. I am definitely looking forward to experimenting with this in the future.
Ultra Precision Eye Liner (Waterproof) in Black
Sample Size: 0.03 fl oz
The Liner is an ultra precise moulded plastic eye pencil that provides a soft application that lasts. The smooth and velvety waterproof formula glides on easily for seamless blending.-ipsy.com
So far I have only swatched this product. The pencil glides on easily and seems to be great for smudging for that ever-popular smokey look.
All products came in this cute little black and white houndstooth bag with a bring pink zipper.
Well that was all for this months bag! Overall, I am most excited to cream blush! Do you receive the Ispy subscription each month as well? If so, what is your favorite product that you received during the month of August?
