I like that it is nice compact size and travel friendly. The pigmentation seems to be nice and its NYX product they are nice drugstore options.

 Now let’s get on to this months products 🙂

This month they decided to go on with back to school Theme.

The Orange Polka dot Bag !!

This month they sent out this plastic orange polka dot bag, it goes with back to school theme. I like these kind of bags they good to carry stuff when travelling.

My bag came with 5 products and not all full size but some good brands 

The first one which I was very excited to try was the Lip Balm and I got the Grape one 🙂 The balm seems to be pretty good and it doesn’t have any color plus it is a  full size item, I can surely make a good use of this product.

 The second product is by Dr Brandt’s Best Selling Pore Refiner which is said to minimize the pores ,blur imperfection and Erases shine & mattifies skin. All subscribers received a sample  size of 0.25oz. Thats quite a good amount to get some usage as we need very little primers. Also the most expensive product out of the products which i received.

The primer tube was nicely sealed and not opened. 

I also got a deluxe sample of Urban decay Perversion mascara. Yes Ipsy throws out high products in most of the bags.

 I tried this mascara and I am so happy. It makes my lashes fuller and lengths it and i can put as many coats I want 🙂

Might get a full size !!

The fourth product was Coastal scent forever Blush duo.

We got this sample of the 2 blushes Fresh and Elegant. They swatch nicely and pretty pigmented.The only problem is how do i get my brush into this small blush duo..its too small 😦

The fifth product which I received was a sample of  Silk Kajol Pencil By Lord & Berry.

This kajol pencil was pretty darn black,soft, smudgeable and it can used on the inner eye. I like how creamy and soft it is and easy to apply on the lower lash line.
But the only regret was that it was  very small sample 0.02 oz. I guess this would a great fit for touch ups and when travelling lite.
Final thoughts : I paid $10 and got $29.5 worth products. It wasn’t a that great month but not that worst too.
I can make use of all the products but not super impressed.
Ipsy sent out bags with different combination of products, what products did you get ? How was your experience ?
