Beauty Box, Ipsy

Ipsy August 2018


Alot is changing for Ipsy, in the best way possible.  No longer do you have just your glam bag to contend with.  Opening up  a new online store, daily 9am deals and a cash back option that rivals just about the best of them they are growing in a big way.  Another steal for $10  I have seen bigger brands be packed into our monthly ipsy bag each consecutive month.  Working their web page as almost an interactive platform (not to mention Ipsy GEN Beauty) coming to New York October 13th and 14th 2018 they are really diving into what us ipsters want and giving us more learning content for this generation alone.  I am over the moon with my picks this month so lets jump in to the end of summer with this August bag of bomb products.

Ofra Cosmetics, Eye shadow in Blue Jeans – Retail $15

Blues must be the c0lor of the fall.  Ive had 3 blue shadows sent to me in the past 2 months.  I’m not complaining though.  Like jeans, you can have a million different kinds and they still are all different.  Super pigmented with flecks of pearl for an ultra fine shimmer wear this shadow wet or dry depending on the statement your trying to make.  Don’t worry about this bad boy fading.  OFRA Cosmetics are known for their long lasting wear and pigmentation.

This antioxidant-loaded black tea extract helps protect your skin from harmful environmental conditions (like pollution) and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines. Pat into your skin for maximum absorption and fight those signs of aging. This serum also includes a blend of niacinamide (which brightens things up) and tea tree oil (which soothes and revitalizes). Apply after your toner (or right after cleansing) and watch it absorb quickly.
