Ipsy Glam Bag: June

Hey everyone! We are back from our UK Vacay and back to the disgusting heat of Texas in the summer. We had an awesome time and I picked up quite a few beauty items on the trip that I’ll share with you guys in a future post. BUT FIRST! Waiting patiently in the mail when we returned was my Ipsy Glam Bag for June and it did not disappoint at all.

Ipsy Glam Bag: June

Ipsy Glam Bag: June


Here’s the breakdown:

Let’s first start with the bag itself. Animal print and neon? Duh! Super cute and it feels more durable than the bag last month. (Not that I’ve had a problem with the bag from last month, just an observation!).

1. J. Cat Eyelashes and Glue Style EL99. These look really nice for a super glam look. The are long and a little flared at the ends, which will be great for a cat eye look. The band doesn’t look bulky or thick so I have high hopes that they will go on nicely. They also say they are 100% human hair….which I can’t lie, kind of creeps me out…are all lashes human hair? I don’t know. Anyway, I’ll try to remember to do a post when I wear them…maybe that false eyelash post that I’ve been meaning to do forever!

2. J. Cat Sparkling Cream Palette in Volta. Another J. Cat product. I’ve never heard of the brand but I’m going to go check out the line for sure. I’m not sure what to think about this glitter palette. It says to use caution around the eye area and I can see why since the glitter comes out super chunky. I’ll stick to my eye-safe Eye Kandy glitters for eye looks. So I guess it’s supposed to be a body glitter product? I’m not quite sure what I’ll use it for but I’ll put it in my professional kit and see if I can come up with a use for it there.

3. Cailyn Line Fix Gel Eyeliner in Iron. I actually have heard super good things about the Cailyn liners and had wanted to purchase one myself. So thanks Ipsy! I got the color Iron which is a pretty gunmetal grey. This stuff lasts for sure. I swatched it on my hand and literally had to scrub to get it off! The only thing to take into consideration is that it dries super fast so you have to work quick. Other than that, I love it and will have to invest in some more colors for super long wear.

4. Starlooks Tickle Me Pink Lip Pencil. I have heard of the Starlooks brand and had been cruising their site not to long ago so I was happy to see something from the brand in my bag. Lip pencils are something that are seriously lacking in my collection. I don’t really wear them as often as I should and never find myself gravitating to them at the store. So many more exciting things than lip liner. Tickle Me Pink is a really pretty true pink color and the pencil glides on very smooth. Not much other to say than it’s a lip pencil, and I like it.

5. NYX Mosaic Powder in Dare. Loves me some NYX and I don’t have any of their blushes so holler again to Ipsy! The Mosaic Powder is a powder blush comprised of 5 colors that you swirl together. The color that Dare comes out being is quite lovely. Not sparkly or matte but a nice satin finish that turns out peachy pink. Savy Likes!

So again, my Ipsy experience is a win! I also got a bonus Bauble Bar Bracelet for having 2 people sign up for the service! Shout out to Monica and Kymberli!

Ipsy Glam Bag: May

I’ve been wanting to try a beauty subscription service for a while now. (I do get the Beauty Test Tube from QVC but it only comes 4 times a year) I went and did some research and after coming across one too many unfavorable reviews on BirchBox, I decided to go with Ipsy! Ipsy was started by beauty bloggers and YouTube beauty Gurus so of course, I had to throw my support their way. They have partnerships with some great brands that include Urban Decay, NYX, Josie Maran, and The Balm, just to name a few. And as an extra bonus, your items come in a different cute little cosmetic bag and you get special discounts on full sizes of products featured that month. I just received my first bag and I am not disappointed.

Here’s what I got in my first “Glam Bag”:
Pacifica: Island Vanilla Perfume Roll-on:
This smells amazing. I used to have a Blood Orange Body Butter from the brand that I loved so I’m excited to try something else from the brand. Plus it’s not just a little, teeny sample, but an actual roll-on size product.
Anastasia: Travel Size Clear Brow Gel:
I’ve heard great things about the Anastasia line’s brow products. Brow Gel is not something I would spend a lot of money on so it’s nice to have a small ‘fancy’ one.
Mirabella: Colour Sheers Lipstick in Posy
A full size lipstick ya’ll! This has the consistancy of a lip butter and feels very good on the lips. I love the color too! It comes off pretty sheer and says it has a mango butter base to nourish your lips. Oh La La! I’ve never heard of the brand but that’s why I do this, to try new things!
Yaby: Concealer Refill in Honey:
Let me start off by saying that the actual product seems awesome. I swatched it on my hand, and the consistancy and coverage is amazing. I’m only disappointed because they sent me totally the wrong color. Like, I had to go back to my profile to make sure I didn’t screw something up….but it definitely says FAIR. Honey is the brand’s second to darkest color. NOT for a fair skinned person. Oh well, I’ll put in in my kit and I’m sure it will work great on someone with the right skintone. I’ll probably end up purchasing it in my color though, maybe even a range of colors to put in my professional kit. I liked it that much.
Zoya: Nail Polish in Gie Gie:
Again, I’ve heard great things about this brand of polish and was so excited to see another full size product in my bag! It’s a precious baby pink color with silver sparkle. Perfect for the season and I can’t wait to try it out!

All in all, I’m thrilled with my first Ipsy experience! Super cute bag, (because who can’t have enough cosmetics bags), a couple full size products and some new brands to try. Everything I was hoping for. Use the link below if you want to try out Ipsy for yourself. For only $10 a month, you can’t go wrong!!!!
