The theme for the June 2015 ipsy Glam Bag is Swim Into Beauty. Five products that are Summer beauty must-haves, so says the glamazons of ipsy!
The bag is no match for last month’s bag which was made by Breakups to Makeup, but none-the-less it’s black with a fun hot neon coral zipper. It’s got a spongy feel which I’m not totally a fan of.
From Formula X, Nail Color. I got the shade Power Source which is a bright, cheerful rosy pink shade. It’s a mini size and completely adorable! I love polish minis!
From Lavanila, The Healthy Body Butter in Pure Vanilla. I love how Lavanila body butter feels but I cannot stand the scent of vanilla. It gives me a migraine and just isn’t for me =( Luckily a lot of people love it so I can easily give it away.
From Smashbox, Photo Finish Foundation Primer. I’m one of the few people that is just not a fan of this cult fave product. It doesn’t do anything for me but sit on my face and feel awful. Maybe I’m too oily for it? I have found primers that I love, so if you’re like me check out the ones from PUR Minerals or the Murad Invisiblur (which is spendy but amazing).
From OFRA Cosmetics, Turquoise Eyeliner. I LOVE OFRA! Their products are wonderful and this is an awesome, full-size product to get in this month’s ipsy bag. The shade is totally on point for Summer and is easy to apply. Also, it lasts all day. WIN.
From tre’StiQue, Mini Shadow Crayon. I got the shade Kona Coffee which is a deep brown, but 3 other shades are also floating around. I was shocked to see how easily this pencil glided and how pigmented it was. It creases so make sure you use a secondary primer underneath if you check this one out.
Again this month I cashed in some referral points for one of my favorite products of all time – the skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels. Since I had some points expire I’ve been nervous about the ones I have left so I’m trying to use them up before it happens again lol However I am obsessed with these eye gels and I’d have bought as many as possible if I weren’t limited to one.
This months bag was definitely worth the $10 even with not liking 2 of the 5 products. The OFRA pencil was my fave and full sized and even though the polish and eye crayon were mini’s they’re those mini’s that I’ll get a lot of use out of.
Ipsy has profile pages, so here is mine. There is also a pretty decent referral program in place. You refer friends and redeem points to get a sweet little bonus in your next bag (use the points to choose your own!). I’ve gotten some really fab full sized products but definitely read the description because some of them are a lot of points for just a sample size. Previous bonuses have been from NYX, Tarte, Revlon and more! Note: These points DO expire. I didn’t know that until recently when I was logged in and noticed my point total… I left for dinner and came back and it was 300 points less. I wish I’d have known that ahead of time so I could have spent them, but hopefully this message will help you out so you don’t lose your points!
What do you think about the June Glam Bag? Are you going to subscribe for July? You Should! I’m always excited to see what they have in store!
