Ipsy is an online beauty subscription where you sample five different products (e.g. mascara, eyeshadows, etc.) mailed in a collectible bag. There’s a lovely theme each month and the products you receive are personalized according to your answers in a quiz, which is taken at the beginning of the subscription.
Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday ❤
The theme of July’s Ipsy glam bag is “Hot Summer Nights,” an accurate description for the Southern California weather that I’m currently experiencing. The inspirations behind this month’s bag according to Ipsy’s website were “Bonfires, BBQS, and Pool parties.” As you can see below, the bag itself has many mini umbrellas on the front (which reminds me of peppermints lol) and a chrome/oil spill pattern on the back.
The products I received July 2016:
- Ms. Amazing & Queen Bee Masks by SHRAY – Although I have never heard of this particular brand, the sheet masks both look promising. The first mask, Ms. Amazing, is catered for sensitive and dry skin (something I personally struggle with). I’m excited to try out this moisturizing mask and the second mask, Queen Bee, since it’s an acne-treating mask.
- Delectable Lemon & Cream Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream from Delectable by Cake Beauty – I typically don’t care for hand creams in the summer because the heat makes lotions feel extra greasy. Luckily, I sampled this hand cream on a cool (indoors) day and found this product has some nourishing skin benefits. The fragrance “lemon & cream” lingers a bit though and is pretty strong.
- Professional Contour Eyeshadow Brush (4) by VASANTI COSMETICS – I. love. brushes. I enjoy receiving them in my glam bag and so was looking forward to trying this one out. The long bristles are meant to make contouring your eyes easier and I feel like it will work well for the crease.
- Hangover Replenishing Face Primer by Too Faced – Too Faced is one of my favorite high end, cruelty-free makeup brands out there. One of their most talked about products in the beauty community is the Hangover Face Primer. I’m excited to finally try this beauty out and share if it;s worth purchasing full-size in the future.
- Meet Matt(e) Trimony Eyeshadow (in Matt Moskowitz) by theBalm Cosmetics – theBalm Cosmetics is (also) a cruelty-free brand and one I wish to explore more of. I heard (and read) raving reviews on several of their products in the past, so I was thrilled when I discovered I was going to be able to try one of their eyeshadows. The color I received is a moody purple, plum and it’s quite blendable.
P.S. I post every Wednesday and Friday now!
