June 2013 Ipsy Bag

Hi guys! I just realized I'm a little behind on my monthly Ipsy bag review, sorry! It could possibly be because I wasn't as intrigued by it like I normally am. Keep reading for the deets ;)

I loved, loved, loved this month's bag! It's probably the cutest one yet. It has neon yellow detailing with leopard print canvas.

Chella Lace Highlighter 
I was sort of confused by this product. I couldn't find an exact description of what it was "actually" for. My first thoughts were brow highlighting considering Chella makes brow gel, and I think that is its main purpose but I saw a lot of people using it as concealer and eye primer on YT. I wasn't amazed by this product.

J. Cat Sparkling Cream Palette
This product was a TOTAL turn off for me. If you remember, I have reviewed a similar palette from a different brand and I mentioned that I thought the glitter was WAY too thick to be used around the eyes, well this palette is THE EXACT SAME WAY. It's like loose glitter is laying on top of a Vaseline square? Odd, but that's the best way I can describe it. This palette seems childish to me (if it's even safe for children to use this) - sorry.

NYX Rouge Cream Blush
 I was glad to see a NYX blush. This color is in "Natural". However, I barely use cream blushes considering I hardly ever use liquid products. It is nice to have a couple on hand when I wear my Tarte BB Cream though, so, no complaints here.

Star Looks Lip Pencil
This product was nice to try out. I can't say I'm a fan of the color or the quality, but hey, that's what these things are for, to try. The pencil actually went on pretty creamy and the color is called "Tipsy" and is like a bright salmon pink (not flattering on me at all). The wood from the pencil smelled awful and caused my bag to have that same scent. Pretty unpleasant after being shut up in the mail for a few days!

Bauble Bar Stud Wrap Bracelet (extra)

This is probably the only thing I was very excited about in my bag this month. I received this Bauble Bar bracelet as an extra due to referrals. It is the neatest little thing and I've been getting so many compliments on it. Mine came in this coral/orange color with gold detail. It was a nice surprise!

I forgot to post a photo of the "Psst Dry Shampoo" that came in the bag- will update ASAP!

 Overall, this month's bag has been one of the most disappointing in a long, LONG time. I wasn't really a fan of any of the products except for my extra. Now, that's not saying that Ipsy is an awful company, they've just had better months. Redeem yourself next month, Ipsy! ;)

Again, if you're interested in joining it is $10 a month with 4-6 full size/deluxe size products as well as a new monthly makeup bag.

Thanks for reading!

Until next time...

  1. Hmm, perhaps the Chella Lace Highlighter is used to line the lower waterline?
