This months theme was “Hot Summer Nights” featuring this shining beach umbrella makeup bag! It’s adorable, but I am probably being biased because Summer is my favourite time of year.

Here are the products I received this month:

Mellow Cosmetics Baked Eyeshadow in Plum

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this brand because I have never tried them before and have had bad experiences with baked shadows in the past. I have to admit I was disappointed with receiving a cranberry shadow two months in a row however when I swatched this everything changed. This is STUNNING! It swatched beautifully and effortlessly with amazing pigment.

Eau Thermale Avène Thermal Spring Water


I don’t understand this product at all. Claims to soften/calm skin, remove makeup, tone, clean, hydrate, heal ecxema and more… Guess what the ingredients are though. Ready? Spring water and nitrogen, that’s it. I get that having nitrogen in it may do something but it honestly just feels like water on my face.

BeFine Food Skin Care


I haven’t used this product yet but it intruges me. It’s a nigh cream that is supposed to help reduce wrinkles and premature aging as well as even it out for a healthy colour/tone.

Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash Mascara


I gave this away. I recieved 2 samples of it from generation beauty in Toronto but didnt like it then and gave away those as well. For me personally it just doesnt give me full, volumous lashes.

Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Small Angle Eye Brush 215


Great brush! As many of you know from a previous post that I almost have the full luxie rose gold collection so this is my fourth duplicate but they do come in handy!

Points Products!

I spent some points to try out this eyeliner and it is amazing quality! After swatching it was stubborn and didn’t want to remove right away which show the quality of it is good.


Overall I did not care for this months products much. I love the Mellow shadow however the rest don’t do it for me. That is bound to happen with these kinds of services though and the bag makes up for it!

What did you get in your bag this month and what product did you like the most? Leave me a link or let me know in the comments!

  1. Agreed! This month’s products were so boring.. they even recycled a lot of the products that were in the June ipsy bag.. I wasn’t impressed either. But you’re right – the bag def makes up for it 😊

  2. I’ve been keeping up with everyone’s subscription boxes and I must say, I cancelled Birchbox at a very good time because their point system made the subscription lose value. On the other hand, ipsy is kind of up and down. Their products are getting better but a lot of people seem more disappointed than before.
