Humble Beauty Opinion #93 :: August 2021

Last Saturday of the month = my August Humble Beauty Opinion! 
My monthly subscriptions, purchases, reviews, wishlists & empties!

As per usual lets start with my monthly subscription to Ipsy!
This months bag was eh 🤷🏻‍♀️
Also got an email that Ipsy is raising the price to $13 a month, a $1 increase...
I think it will still be worth it, 
might be worth it to lock in the $11 by switching to an annual plan

This month I picked the Verso Skincare Facial Cleanser,
haven't tried it yet

Also added on two perfumes that I am excited to try,
 I already know I love the Kensie perfume 
& am excited to try the English Laundry 

Picked up a couple other skin care duos this month too!
I love the Caolion Black Head mask

After getting a Porefessional Super Setter sample in an Ipsy bag,
I really wanted to try the full size, 
stopped by Macys to pick one up and got this Girl Boss free gift,
I was so exited but when I went to use it the sprayer was broken 😔 
Ended up moving the liquid into my old Urban Decay Setting Spray bottle 

Got some goodies on my monthly makeup wishlist!

This is the first Urban Decay Naked palette that I have been excited about in a little while, 
to the point of contemplating purchasing it


Lights Lacquer put out a little trio "truly, madly, deeply
and it is so pretty!

Loved my August horoscope from @lightslacquer's Instagram Story:

Another polish I want to get on my fingertips {especially this fall} 
is Essie's "Easily Suede"

reminds me of OPI "uh no roll down the window" another ones of my faves

I love the Nicki Minaj perfumes, 
mainly for the packaging but also like the scent.
I gotta find this on to add it to my collection:

Speaking of perfumes how beautiful is this Gucci Flora
would love to try this out! 

I need to get a retractable brush for my work bag 
and I think I might try this one from Sephora

This month's empties, what I used up, loved, hated  
& all my humble opinions in between:
beauty: Garnier Fructis "Texture Tease"- I love this stuff to give my hair a little grit and volume | Lights Lacquer "Magic Strengthener"- I got this in the holiday trio and really enjoyed it! Will purchase the full size when I am done with the little elixir | SW Basics “Cinnamon Lip Balm”- loved this, lasted a very long time | Trader Joe's Brazil nut Body Butter- LOVED this, it was so luxe felt like the feels comparable Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Body Cream | Raw Sugar "super berry" hand cream- this was just okay, I don't think it left my hands moisturized for very long | taste "quench" hydrating primer- I like this primer, I don't think it does anything for my pores but does make my skin tacky and ready for makeup | the POREfessional "Super Setter"- got this from Ipsy I enjoyed the sample size enough to buy a full size but I didn't like the sprayer on the little one either (and it didn't work at all on the full size) |  

bath: Revlon "Deep Burgundy"- this is my go to hair dye | up & up "jumbo cotton balls"- these are my favorite size for taking off my eye makeup or using toner | Freesia & Fennel candle from Target- my sister Bianca recommended this and it is such a good one! Scent carries through the room and lasts a long time, I enjoyed it | Lavender soap from Trader Joe's- this is one of my faves, smells nice and is exfoliating | CVS "Advanced Healing Hydrocolloid Bandages" I cut these are use them as pimple patches, they are pretty good at drawing the infection out | Dental Whitening Treatment from Target- I think these do work, I use them sparingly since my teeth are sensitive | Freeman Brightening Sheet Mask- a pretty standard face mask | Origins "Flower Fusion"- I liked this mask, even Charlie said my skin looks brighter after using it!

What is your vote?

Mine is #2 
BUT only picking out the outfit not actually putting it on,
using the colors from the outfit to decide my eye shadow and lip combo,
