Ipsy Bag – July

Ipsy Bag

First let’s get the introduction out of the way for those who may not have heard of Ipsy.

Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. You fill out a survey about your preferences and with a paid subscription, you’re sent a themed bag geared to your preferences. Each month you get 4-5  full size or deluxe-sized products, plus a cute makeup bag. Once you get your bag, you can review your items online and tell Ipsy what you think to earn points that can be redeemed for items. Contents of the bag may vary.

Now for the fun stuff! I like the bag to be a surprise so I stay away from my glam room and spoilers.

What’s in my bag?

The first thing that caught my eye was the bag. It’s a bright pink waterproof bag that will be used to hold my cell phone, keys, and other small items when I go to the beach.

I was disappointed with the bareMinerals cream eye shadow. The color does absolutely nothing for me I will be gifting it to my son’s girlfriend who loves experimenting with different makeup looks.

I was very  happy to receive the Befine Food Skin Care daily moisturizer. It came just at the right time because  I’ve been wanting to try a different moisturizer that was less oily. I also enjoy the light and pleasant scent.

 I was really surprised to see the Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil because my beauty quiz clearly indicates I have a darker skin tone. But hey, stuff happens. After reading all the different oils listed in the ingredients, I decided I will use it as a nightly after shower oil.

I was excited to see the Pixi Beauty Mini Tinted Brilliance Balm. Although I don’t see any tint when applied, I love the way it feels on my lips.

Those who know me know that I love nail polish.  So I was  excited to see the wHet Nail Polish in Facetious. I look forward to wearing it during the cooler months.

      This is the first I’ve heard of Vain Pursuits. I will have to look them up to see if it’s a good fit for me. Have you tried them? If so, what did you think?
