Yay It’s time for another IPSY Bag!! I get so excited when I get that email that says my IPSY Bag has shipped, and then I check it a gazillion times like a mad woman (not really, but maybe). It’s just so fun not knowing what you are getting, you can view the items beforehand but I choose not to. I like keeping it a secret until I open it myself! Keep reading to see exactly what I got this month!
What is IPSY: I say this in every time so if you already know you can skip to the juicy stuff! IPSY is a $10 monthly subscription service full of beauty products, skincare, hair care, and more. You take a beauty quiz upon signing up and that determines the types of items and colors you receive each month. If you don’t like a product, tell them and they won’t send it to you again. You can also cancel at anytime. It’s super easy and fun so why not? These also make great gifts! :) Click here to sign up.
First things first I’m the realest… sorry I had an Iggy Azalea moment! But seriously first things first let’s talk about this adorable bag.
The bag is a Rebecca Minkoff bag (a luxury handbag line) and oh so cute! It’s such a fun summer print with pinneapples and palm trees all over it. This is probably going to be my new inside-the-purse-beauty/catchall-bag… you know what I mean right?
Inside the Bag
Be a Bombshell Lash Out Mascara: The packaging of this mascara is nice and sleek, but as soon as I opened it a super strong scent wafted at me. It smells like a nail salon inside of a gas tank or something. Something that smells that chemically strong doesn’t sound too safe to put near your eye. But I tried it anyways. When I first tried it it made all my lashes clump into one big giant lash. That’s not what I look for in a mascara. I was in a hurry so I just switched to my fave instead. I tried this again today and it definitely worked better than the first time, but it’s more of a natural looking mascara so I wouldn’t say this is volumizing at all. | $15
NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair: I LOVE this lip gloss. I already have several colors that I’ve picked up from my local Ulta. They are super creamy, really pigmented, not sticky, and smell (and taste) so yummy! I’m much more of a lipstick girl but if I’m going to wear a gloss it’s going to be one of these babies. This color is the perfect pinky nude color. It would look great over nude lipstick or a subtle pink lipstick, or all on it’s own. Love it! These even won a Oprah Award in her Magazine! | $5
DermaDoctor 15 in 1 Benefits DD Cream: With all these creams and such I feel like soon there is going to be a ZZ cream. We just keep going down the alphabet! Anyways I love things like this for pool/lake/beach days when you want to wear a little something on your face but not a full face of makeup. I don’t usually wear any makeup on swim days but if I do it’s something like this. I love that this is also doing 15 great things to my face besides just sitting there. Great to throw in your purse or beach bag. | $19
Nicka K New York Shimmer Eyeliner in Green: I just used this today and I really like it, the color is really opaque and very easy to apply! I love eyeliners like this for the summer because they are the perfect pop of color. These can be really work appropriate too just do the rest of the eye pretty neutral with browns, golds, bronzes, or champagne colors and this could definitely work at work haha see what I did there? The color is beautiful, but these also come in a ton of other fun colors or neutrals too! | $4.99
Fun Fact: After scrubbing my hand with a makeup remover wipe until my hand turned pink, then using an eye makeup remover this bad boy is still on my hand. Talk about staying power.
Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray: I’ve used this before and I remember liking it! I love creating beachy hair waves in the summer. It’s so easy and summer time appropriate. This beach spray smells really good and feels good in the hair. It doesn’t weigh it down or make it sticky. Perfect to throw in your beach bag, just spritz in your hair after a pool day and let it air dry. | $7.99 full size
Overall this was one of the best IPSY bags I’ve received in a while. Everything I got I was really excited to try. I’m going to review all of the things on their website, so I will get more things like this in the future. 3 of the items in the bag this month are full size. The value of this bag would be $52. Pretty great deal for just $10! Click here to see what I got in my May bag.
Do you wear makeup to the pool/lake/beach?
