Ipsy June 2013 Review

This Ipsy bag was really awesome. The bag itself was so nice. The colors, the prints + even the quality was amazing to me. I think this will be replacing the chevron bag in my purse as my new favorite.

In my bad this month I recieved the following:
Starlooks Lip Pencil in Tickle Me Pink: Full Size $12.00
J. Cat Eyelashes + Eyelash Glue: Full Size $3.99
J. Cat Sparkling Cream Pallete: Full Size $4.49
Nyx Blush in Angel: Full Size $5.00
Cailyn Cosmetics  Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner w/ Brush Builtin in Iron: Full Size $21.00
As you can see, this bag is already valued at more than you pay for the subscription itself.
Total Value = $46.48

I'm excited to try these. I have been wanting to try false eyelashes for a while + I'm hoping these will do great for me. As I said above, I have really long eyelashes + don't really NEED false ones but it's fun to try new things.

 I'm a fan on NYX. I reviewed one of their lip products a while back + it's my new favorite. NYX is an affordable brand that offers awesome products that are cruelty free, so when I heard that NYX was in this months bag I was stoked. The blush is a color I wouldn't normal go for but I think it pairs well with my skin. The color is described as a soft matte pink, but when applied I would say it's more like a peach. The color on my skin is very pretty, very subtle with a slight glow. I am pretty excited about this product.

I've never used a lip liner before + to be honest, I was kind of scared to try this out. I used it on my lips + the pencil broke but the color looked awesome on my skin. It looks more like a pink color but when on my lips, it was a really light red color. I am excited to pair this with some of my lip colors to see which one looks best. What color would you pair it with?

I love sparkles + I was really excited about this product when I saw it. At first, I thought it was just glitter with a bad payoff but after playing with it for a while, I realized it has a creamy texture to it. The payoff still isn't amazing, but I think you could do a lot of neat things with this.

I think this gel eyeliner is going to be good. I wish it was darker but over all, the product is great. I swatched it on my skin + the brush applies a nice straight line so I may actually be able to do a good cat eye. I think this would be great added with a smoky eye.

What did you get in your Ipsy bag? Are you a fan of Ipsy? Where there products in your bag that you didn't like or did you get different products than me? Let me know below!

If you're thinking about trying out Ipsy, it's only 10$ a month + you get 4-5 beauty products plus a cute bag
every month. There is always at least one full size item, but I've always recieved many full size items in my bag. Each bag is worth the 10$ (usually double that). If you're looking to try out new products, it's a great way to introduce yourself to different brands. If you're interested, click here to sign up.

This product was purchased with my own money. All Thoughts stated above are my own + I was not paid to say any of it. This blog post may contain referral/affiliate links.

  1. I love the idea of this box, something that I will have to look into. When it comes to fake lashes, yah I am pretty bad also! But I have been trying them out and we just need some practice. You'll get it though :) Another thing, who doesn't love some sparkles?!
