For those of you who don’t know about this subscription bag it is $10 and contain 5 deluxe size samples (and sometimes full size products) each month.
Ipsy starts with a beauty quiz that asks you questions about different things you like as well as your different features (i.e. Blonde hair, green eyes, fair skin). Each month you also can review the products your received; so if you love something you let them know and if you hate something you let them know.
Lets get into this months bag!
This months bag is cute! I love the iridescent blue color. The fabric is feels like swim material which is interesting. This one is slightly smaller than bags have been in the past but I really think this would be cute to put in you beach bag to keep things clean and dry!
Now for the products!
This stuff is so nice! When I initially pulled this out of my bag I wasn’t super excited about it because I really just thought it was another lip balm that I would throw in the drawer and get to later. However when I used it the first time over night I was shocked! My lips felt amazing and looked incredible! They were super soft and plush and ready for my favorite liquid lipstick. The nice thing about this is that a little bit goes along way. I just barely have to apply anything to my lips and it spreads amazingly! I have been using this almost every night since I got it!
The nice thing about getting products like these that I know I won’t ever use all of them so I get to try out different brands without the commitment to purchasing a full size of something I know I won’t use in total. Now for this blush. The color is a beautiful rosey pink and adds just the right amount of color to the cheeks. One thing I did notice about this blush is that it does have some kick up when I dip my brush into it but nothing to terrible and as long as I tap my brush off I don’t end up looking like I came straight out of the 80’s. The formula isn’t anything crazy special but I do like this blush and I think it will get good use in my collection.
Finally!! A full size item from The Balm! I didn’t think it would every happen but FINALLY it has come about! Now I should say I don’t know that this is truly a full size but it’s much bigger than any sample size we have gotten from The Balm in the past. This is a really nice warm transition shade. In the pan the shade actually looks darker than what it actually applies. This also has some kick up when I put my brush into the pan and the shade does seem pretty powdery to me. I had to dip in a few times to really build up the color which isn’t a bad thing but not as pigmented as some other shadows I have. I really do like this shade however because it helps to warm up any crease when applied.
I have only used this cream once and it was really nice. I’m not the biggest fan of the smell as it’s got a perfumy smell to it. I’m not really overly hyped up about moisturizers because ever since I have found my Glow Recipe Watermelon Juice nothing else really compares to me. I will continue to try this out and see if it changes my life but at the moment it’s just another moisturizer.
Ipsy doing it again with a full size lipstick! I have gotten a Mellow Cosmetics lipstick in the past and it was one of my favorites to wear in the fall! This one is so much fun! I don’t know how often I will get to wear it because of how bright it is and I don’t like to wear this kind of bright color at work. The formula is really nice and this is really a beautiful. I find that this is more of a stain finish than say a cream matte in my opinion but none the less this is a great lipstick and an awesome full size product!
And that concludes my Ipsy bag for the month of July! I kind of have mixed feelings about my bag this month just because it’s not something I am totally swooning over but it is still a nice little collection of items. I think I may need to go in and redo my beauty profile just to freshen things up.
What did you all get in your Ipsy bags this month? Did you absolutely love all of your products or did you have some duds in your bag as well?
Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
