August ipsy Bag Review

 I honestly kind of forgot about my ipsy bag this month, so I was pleasantly surprised when I checked the mail and it was in there a few weeks ago. Things have been so crazy I had not tried a lot of the products until last week.

 The first product I want to talk about is the HD Powder from City Color. I had no  clue what it was when I took it out of the bag. I opened it up right away and put some on my finger tips and it was so weird! It made my skin feel very silky. It even weirded out Jess 😉   (I might have shoved my hand in his face saying “Feel this! Feel this!” lol) Later that day, I dusted it on my face and liked the smooth finish it gave. Still, I had to Google it to figure it out!

This is what the City Color website says about it: “City Color HD Powder sets your foundation for a smooth, matte finish. This finely-milled powder helps blur any imperfections and fills in fine lines to make sure you are always camera-ready. The translucent shade creates a shine-free and airbrushed look that works with all skin tones!”

Here’s the thing for me- I don’t wear foundation, so I can’t tell you how it works for setting that. I didn’t really notice a difference in the look of my skin, but it felt awesome! It’s made out of milled silica, which I thought was kind of interesting.

 The item I like the most from this bag and have used the most (I put it on right away when I opened the bag!) since I got it has been the Hikari lipgloss in Salsa. I love the color, but the name just makes me think of the food and it made me pause. I like the formula, even though it’s a little sticky. But, just look at it!

I adore the label on this Glamour Dolls eyeshadow in Sorcery. I love the name and the shade. It goes really well with a bunch of eyehsadow I already have and it blends nicely. I would buy this again.

The last item in the bag was Batiste in Original. I wish I would have gotten the ‘Blush’ scent, described as floral and fruity because that’s more my thing. The original is fresh smelling though, so I will use it. Here’s the thing, I haven’t used it yet so I can’t really review it other than to say the sample size it great for carrying in my purse!

 Do any of you get ipsy bags? What was your favorite product this month? Let me know!
