Ipsy August 2014

Sorry about the super delayed IPSY bag post - I think that it may be due to the fact that I really wasn't that excited about this month's bag. The only thing I liked would have to be the double ended crown brush. I will most likely be giving away the Cailyn lipgloss to a friend, the cleanser and hand lotion I will be saving to take with me on any future trips. 

TIP: I normally like to keep deluxe sample sized, or take regular sample sized products with me on vacation so that I can just dispose of them when I am finished. It beats lugging a huge containers of product with me there and back... this applies to lotion, shampoo, conditioners, body wash. Sometimes worse case scenario I will buy those small bath and body body washes, and then just refill them with my own body wash at home... It honestly simplifies a lot when packing and you save a lot of room! Try it out!


Not too sure how much longer I want to keep this subscription going - I am thinking of perhaps cancelling in the new year - we'll see.. maybe I will finally try memebox?

Thoughts/Suggestions/Recommendations?

    1. Have you had a look at your October Room? looks a bit more promising? I am giving them until the new year, my cut off date will be March (just because I am optimistic that they will do something cute for christmas, my bday in Jan - maybe? and for valentines in Feb...) .. but honestly if they still continue at this rate.. I might be bailing out sooner than later....

    2. Yup I looked at my October box and I like it more. I'm curious to see what colours I get for somethings though. LOL, I like how you have your months set up each with a reason. :) I was thinking the same. I will wait until after the new year. I've been pretty happy with ipsy as a whole, but I would also unsubscribe because I want to use up some product first before getting more!

    3. Lololol Thanks .... i dunno if the products are good i wouldn't mind keeping the subscription... However, the products aren't even good enough lately for me to stay invested... :( Lol lets see how it pans out ... tip for you... i actually save these sample sized products to put in my travel toiletry bag or my gym bag so i dont have to lug full sized products around.. its actually helping me to use up the products quickly... even sample packets you get at sephora or anywhere else
