August Subscriptions

I just realized, I never shared what was in my August boxes!!! I was too busy thinking about my birthday in Vegas that I never shared. So, here is the quick low down as to what I got back in August.
So I'm going to share my Ipsy Glam Bag, Birchbox and BeautyBox5!



Ipsy
Coastal Scents blush sample. I wish there wasn't a divider in between the colors, they'd be great mixed together, so I try to make sure my brush gets both colors.
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara sample, a favorite for sure. That stays in my makeup bag in my purse.
Mongongo lip balm smells so good, its tropical goodness all in one cute tube. I put it on while I was on the plane flying to Vegas, and my husband could smell it the whole time. Score one for me.
Dr. Brandt Pores No More its a good primer. I have enjoyed it when I used it. I am currently trying out a few different brands of primers that claim to minimize pores and then whichever one(s) I love the most I'll end up buying. I do love my POREfessional from Benefit, but there are some good competitors.
Manna sheer is nice to put on your face, however, not all over. I put it just on the areas I want to highlight because it perfectly highlights it.

August ipsy glam bag!! @ipsy #beautytipsters  My fave beauty tip: "know how long your makeup is good for! Makeup expires too! Either write it down somewhere, or put a sticker with the date purchased!" Love the urban decay perversion mascara! Can't wait to try the pores no more tomorrow! #beauty #makeup #subscription


Birchbox
I wasn't too happy with this box this month. I join these subscriptions in order to try new makeup I may not otherwise have tried. So when I opened this, I wasn't happy.
BUT, I do love two things from here...
Dizzolv'It Makeup Melt Cleansing Balm. It really does what it says. It even removes They're Real liner from Benefit. Any makeup that is waterproof, this cleanser will get it. I 100% love this product.
Marcelle BB Cream. It has sunscreen in it, which is great. However, its a bit too dark for my face. So I won't be using this. It will sit in my drawer of samples for a while.
Supergoop hand cream. I swear Supergoop is in every other box these days. I'm over it. I like the lotion and hand cream I use. But I'll keep this one in the sample drawer and maybe pull it out and keep it in my purse for emergencies.
Not A Perfume by Juliette Has A Gun. I know, the randomest thing you'd ever hear, but apparently, it isn't a perfume LOL. But it smells good. A little goes a LONG way. I do like it.
ModelCo Shimmer Bronze. Not too much shimmer in the bronze, and its a bit too dark for my liking. I've been getting a lot in all my boxes from ModelCo, the other items I've gotten I really do like.
While this box was a disappointment, the most recent two have been good. Octobers was AMAZING! And I'll be sharing that soon. If you want to join, click here.

BeautyBox5
If you've seen my past posts you know I love this box. The brands are all so attainable and affordable! This box was pretty good.
LA Fresh Travel-lite oil free makeup removers. I LOVE this. I took it with me to Vegas and just, amazing. It's really oil free, and it leaves my face feeling great. I plan on buying a whole pack.
Purlisse moisturizer. Its decent. I'm not jumping over the moon for it, but I will use it when I run out of something else or am between purchases.
Nanacoco lip gloss. So many colors! I love this brand. I just bought another color from BB5 website. It's smooth, and glossy and really shows! New fave lipgloss brand.
Novex nail polish. Despite its looks, its clear with sparkles. It does have a blue-ish tint to it, but its ok. I've worn it by itself and over other colors. I've put it by itself on my daughters toes. She loves her toes polished.
Novex Brazilian Keratin Hair Treatment. I haven't used this yet, but have seen rave reviews online for them. My hair is pretty healthy at the moment, so I don't think I want to use it until its needed (like after I color it).
All this stuff is super affordable. You can find locally and even online its pretty affordable. If you want to join me on BB5, click here.
