Sorry for posting this bag a bit late but what can I say? I have three jobs this summer! 😅
I’m loving the June Ipsy Glam Bag theme, Flying Colors. I’m not only an eternal lover of bold color, but the theme is in line with Pride month. I’m all for it. Love is love. Live and let live. Plus, the bag is too cute.
As for the products…
My favorite was hands down the…
Moisturizing Eye Bomb by Belif
I was beyond stoked to get this in my bag in June. I saw a few other people had received it and kept my fingers crossed I would too. As someone unwilling to shell out exorbitant amounts for skincare products I’m not sure will even work for me, I’m totally down to try any for a fraction of the cost. Let me tell you, this does what it claims to. Though I haven’t been using it long enough to say I see a totally different person, I can see the difference in my under eyes. They are refreshed and plumped every time I use this and it is so nice for the summer due to how cooling and refreshing it is. I need to try more K Beauty and purchase a full size of this asap.
Kaleido Cosmetics Skin Blush in Primadonna
As a lover of peachy glowy blushes, I feel like this blush is a perfect fit for me. As an added bonus, it is “100% cruelty-free, vegan, talc-free, phthalate-free and para ben-free.” Yay! The formula is glowy, creamy, and buildable. I will definitely be using this a lot and already have. Also, the creator is pretty awesome and the company’s team took the time to comment and reply to me on ig, which is so cool!
In the words of Ipsy,
“We’re kinda obsessed with the founder of Kaleido Cosmetics and her relatable, fun-loving attitude. In her own words: “I have lots of fun with the product descriptions and shade naming, most of which are done over a glass of wine with a big bowl of nachos and guacamole with my fantastic girlfriends!”
Ferdinand Lipstick Mini Lipstick in Rose Gold
I love the color of this lipstick, and anything rose gold, but it’s not the best formula honestly. It’s not as opaque as I’d like and requires many layers to look close to how it does in the tube. On the plus side though, it’s super creamy which I’m all for. I’ve been layering it with liquid lipsticks to make them more comfortable on the lips. It’s perfect for sticking in your purse for an easy lip.
Bare Minerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Serum
As someone past the age of 21, which I’m honestly not too sad about as 21 wasn’t my best moment, (bad friends and boyfriends are a toxic combo), I’m stoked to finally have a skincare routine. I would always look at the Lancome and Clinique counters with wonder as a kid and want to slather all of my mom’s skincare all over just for fun. Now I can do it for real and I have totally seen a difference in my skin. I’ve only been using this for two weeks along with everything else I’m using, but I love my skin’s renewed looking texture and how refreshed it looks. Ipsy’s description says it all:
“It packs a special blend of ginger extract which helps brighten, and antioxidant-packed California poppy which protects your skin from damage like fine lines and sun spots. Even though it’s concentrated, it’s really lightweight and sinks into your skin immediately—so right after applying you’ll feel fresh, hydrated, and super glowy” I would have to say that so far, that’s pretty accurate and my skin is super sensitive and prone to breaking out and I’ve been happy with it.
Kokie Cosmetics Be Bright Illuminating Concealer
I’ve been wanting to try this, and like with so many products, Ipsy seems to read my mind. After hearing my girl Tati rave about this in so many videos, I was sure I’d love it as I usually agree with her. It’s not as full coverage or matte as I’d like as a girl with acne scars and who is oily, but surprisingly, I like this for a no makeup makeup day. It’s prefect for under the eyes and to highlight for natural glowy skin. This is great for the summer, when you don’t always want to wear a full heavy face of makeup. I’ve been wearing it to work and love it combined with my L’Oréal Infallible Pro Matte. The combination works well for me.
Overall, I am happy as I really needed to boost my skincare game even more and I received two great skincare products. I’m obsessed with the blush, can totally make the concealer work, and the lipstick is a great color but wish it was more pigmented. Still great for easy makeup days.
In terms of boxycharm vs. Ipsy if have to say this month, it’s a toss up! Loved both.
What did you get in your Ipsy bag? Any goodies? Any flops?
Love you all!
