Ipsy Bag August 2014 | A Clothes Look

I feel like Ipsy took forever to come in this month but I loved my bag so it was worth it for me! As always Ipsy is a $10 a month subscription service and if you want to sign up I would love for you to use my referral link sign me up!

This month the theme was “Beauty Schooled” and it came in an adorable pencil case-esque white and orange polka dot bag. 



The first thing I saw was the Urban Decay sample size of the Perversion mascara, which is new. I’m excited to try it. 


Dr. Brandt Pores No More, facial primer, I’m guessing it will resemble Benefit Porefessional we will see. 






Klorane Dry Shampoo, I’ve never heard of this brand but I do enjoy dry shampoos. 









J. Cat Beauty single pan eyeshadow in the color Half Naked.  It looks gold/peachy in the pan but shows up as a beautiful champagne color.

Lastly, a lip balm called Mongongo. It smells nice and it’s always nice to have a few of these laying around. 




What was in your Ipsy bag this month?

School Year 2014 | A Clothes Look

With the new school year starting in just a few weeks I wanted to put together a collage of some things I try to buy new of every year around August. 

What I Like To Re Buy Every August


One of my favorite things is a new planner, I especially love the ones from Target.

A rollerball perfume is a great way to test the scents of the season and is easy to carry with you in your bag.

A new pair of jeans that fit like a glove.  These ones are the super high, skinny jeans from PacSun. 

A new pair of comfortable, versatile shoes.  I like Vans but Target has a knock off of Vans for a fourth of the price. 

A reusable water bottle.  This will save you a ton of money while you’re on campus whether it’s plastic (BPA free) or glass the one in the photo is from Target. 

Boots.  I wear boots the most out of all shoes, granted if you buy a pair of Doc Martens you will not have to replace these every year but if you buy a cheaper pair of Target you may want to replace them depending how often you wear them. 

Luna Bars or any type of snack bars, I tend to really stock up on these just because they make a great snack in between classes or even a small breakfast if paired with some fruit. 

A new bag, whether it is a messenger bag or a book bag, I tend to be super rough on my bags for school so I do tend to buy a new one every year.  This bag is from Forever 21 Mens. 

Headphones another object I tend to be hard on, I usually repurchase these about every year – two years. I either lose them or break them.  These are Apple ear buds. 

A good bra is expensive, I tend to buy a new one or two every season change. This way I’m not spending a huge amount of money at one time. 

Lastly a really nice laptop sleeve, I usually take my laptop to school at least twice a week so I want it to be protected. This laptop sleeve is by Herschel. 


What do you tend to always repurchase every school year or August? 

Kat Von D Studded Lipsticks | A Clothes Look

Today I am showing you five lipsticks that I bought from the newly released Kat Von D Studded Lipsticks. A few of these lipsticks are colors from her previous collection but they vamped up the packaging and reformulated the lipstick.

With the re-vamp, the price of the lipsticks went from $19 to $21 a piece, Kat Von D is exclusive to Sephora.  The box is a shiny black, with a raised texture of studs. 




The case is a gorgeous black, studded case that feels very sturdy in your hand. 

I will say you might want to swatch in store before buying because the formulas are across the board.


Coven, a light lavender color, is probably the most wanted Kat Von D lipstick, it was the first to sell out.






Coven applies patchy and is a bit drying. The best way I found to apply it to get the intensity above without a lipliner is to blot in between layers of lipstick.  This is about three layers. 


Poe, a dark navy with sparkle, has been blowing up on Instagram.




This is a gorgeous color but needs a lipliner! It slides around on my lips and it is a little grainy because of the sparkle.


Lovecraft, a mauve-rose nude.




This color is a beautiful, your lips but better nude. It applies smooth and fully opaque in one coat. I highly suggest this color.

A-Go-Go, a bright neon orange. 





This color also applies smoothly and opaquely on the lips with no problem.

L’ECole Des Femmes is a bright coral color.





This is a great color for Summer, it is smooth and comfortable to wear and opaque. 



I have a few other colors on my list but I decided to wait until I can swatch them in person to see the consistency of the product.  Have you picked any up? Will you?
