Who is ready for another Makeup Bag Monday post? I love really focusing on a few products each week. It’s really giving me more time to develop my feelings on each product and to try them all out in different ways! This week was a pretty busy week and I had a lot that I managed to get done.

August has been such a busy month for me. I also found that this month just flew by. I feel like it was only yesterday that I was writing up my July monthly favourites. I’m a little sad that summer is coming to a close but I’m so ready for all the perks of the fall season! I have the craziest September planned out so I was really trying to enjoy all that I could when it came to makeup while I had a bit more time to play around with it.
During August, I was playing around a lot with makeup but there wasn’t a lot that I was obsessed with. I definitely ended up loving my hair care and skin care routines a lot more than my makeup. This probably had a bit to do with the fact that I started my Makeup Bag Monday series this past month. I kind of forced myself to play around with a lot more makeup that I never use and as a result it kind of hindered me from using something a million times over the course of the month. But I really don’t regret doing that because a lot of the products in my collection need a lot more love than what they were getting before I started the series!

I’m back with the second installment of my Makeup Bag Monday series. This definitely has become something that I’m enjoying so far. It’s been fairly easy to keep up with. I’ve also found that it really brings out my true feelings on products. I can usually just get away with trying something out once, not liking it and throwing it into a drawer to forget about. But forcing myself to use it basically everyday for a week makes me know for sure whether or not I’m truly into the product. If I dread using the product then it’s probably time to get it out of my collection.
In my Makeup Bag Monday series I try out 5 products over the course of a week. Each Monday I post my feelings on those 5 products. It’s a great way to get mini reviews of each item.
Ipsy is one of my all time favourite subscription services. I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy long before I even had an idea of how to use a majority of the products that I received. It’s an inexpensive way to try out a bunch of different beauty products on a regular basis. Each month, subscribers receive a Glam Bag with 5 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. The service costs $10 USD, shipping is free within the US and an additional $4.95 USD to ship to Canada.
The theme this month was Good Vibes Only. They were trying to make a bag that looked like the sunset. Ipsy was hoping that it would inspire you to be a free spirit and pass on good vibes this month.
I’ve decided to try introducing a new series on my blog. I’ve been seeing this go around social media and youtube and I thought it would be fun to try out. I’m going to post a makeup bag Monday post each week talking about a few products that I tried out over the course of the week. I want to try to use these almost every day over the course of the week. I’ll stick to around 5 products each week because that seems manageable in my mind.
This week I went for a lot of simple products that I’ve been neglecting recently.
