Ipsy myglam bag – $10/month

My June glam bag FINALLY arrived. I think it was lost for a while, but I had faith it would find its way home. My neighbor ordered her first Ipsy bag this month, we kept tracking our orders and they were suppose to arrive at the same time. Nope. Mine decided to keep me in suspense almost a week longer!! It totally killed the thrill since I thought I knew what I was getting since I could see it online when I logged in to my Ipsy.com account. Plus, they did a sneak peak of everything this month, what happened to the mystery of a monthly subscription? Haha I guess it’s my fault for stalking their Facebook and other blogs for hints, but I didn’t think they would give it all away, sheesh.

Yeah! Animal print bag with neon zipper! I was in too much of a hurry to take individual photos of each item, but at this point everyone else has already received their bag and posted photos off what they received, I feel like this is the tall end of this month’s Ipsy excitement.

I have to say I was hoping to get any other color than the NYX Cream Blush in Bronze Goddess. Apply this color lightly out it will look like a dirty tan. I like the cream texture, though, it does blend easily without having to mash your face with pressure, know what I mean? I thought about wearing this over the weekend, but it’s redundant to wear bronzer if you’re in the sun anyway, getting darker without product that will probably wash off in the pool. Ilk be wearing sunblock. I just don’t think I will ever use this NYX Bronze Goddess Cream Blush. Oh well, can’t win them all!

The Starlooks lip pencil in Bare I traded with my neighbor; she got the color Tipsy which is a pinkish coral color. Bare was too dark for me. It looked blue-ish lavendar on my lips, nit “bare”. I would’ve never used it, glad I traded!

Loving the Ivory Lace Chella highlighter pencil!!! This is awesome to use as a brow highlight, I have been wanting something like this. This bad boy is going to be used up for sure!

I saw the pictures in my “glam room” on Ipsy’s website and I thought I was getting the Cailyn Gel Fix Liner with built in brush in purple (!!!) But I got the color Iron. It’s like a pewter grey with a metallic glint. Oh, how smart! Built in brush attached to the handle off the container! Ooo, like that. I’ve seen this in other reviews for other subscription boxes and it gave me box envy. I am thinking this gel liner is coming in my bag with me this weekend. I will need a sturdy eyeliner for Saturday night! Hmm, the black Xtreme Lashes liner I got in Glossybox has really great staying quality, too. It will be a tough decision. Or do I pull out my liquid Urban Decay color liners?? Must decide!

The J Cat Sparkling Cream Glitter Palette in Volta is an interesting idea, but this had to be targeted at a clubbing type, I bet most people will never use this other than to swatch the colors. It’s basically 5 different colors of glitter but with the glue built in! Maybe I can put it on all the girls this weekend. There will be 8 co-workers with me in Palm Desert this weekend at the Marriott resort for a girls only trip. Poolside all day tomorrow, dinner and dancing at night. That’s what glitter was made for, right?

Because I referred friends to subscribe to Ipsy I got an additional item in my bag this month. Last month the extra item was an Urban Decay eyeshadow, this month it was an o ring bracelet from Bubble Bar with a unique 20% off coupon code (sorry, I will be using this one). It’s cute, it feels way nicer in person than it looks in photos.

Okay, even though I was bummed about the blush color, who am I kidding thinking that I needed another blush anyway. This month’s Ipsy bag was a score! the Cailyn Gel Liner and the Chella highlighter pencil are sooo worth more than the $10 paid for my subscription. I am loving Ipsy more and more, this is only my 3rd month so I hope they keep it up!

If you haven’t tried Ipsy, I highly recommend you get a subscription here.

      I used the eyeliner Saturday night and it didn’t smudge at all the entire night! It’s my new fav!
