Ipsy July Glam Bag Review

Hi, loves!

It is my second week getting the fabulous ipsy bag, and I must say…I love ipsy! There are some great products in this months bag that you for sure will want to check out.

Makeup Bag

All I have to say is…what the heck is a gudetama? My 13-year-old sister, who is fluent in the world of anime, told me it is a Japanese anime and he is a lazy egg. Well, ok then…He is a cute little fella, but not one I would publically carry around as my makeup bag.

Jersey Shore Cosmetics

Mandarin Green Orange & Ginger Mongongo Lip Conditioner 

This lip conditioner will definitely make your lips feel silky smooth and soft, which I absolutely love. I am not a big fan of the orange taste I tasted when I put it on my lips, but I am not a huge orange fan in general. If you like oranges, then I would definitely try this product out. I might try out another flavor because I do like how this makes my lips feel. I also like that all of the products used to make this lip conditioner are organic, that is always a plus. I would not buy this exact product, but I am curious to see how the other flavors are.

The Mandarin Green Orange & Ginger Mongongo Lip Conditioner is $10.00.

Ciaté London

Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Hybrid Liner In Black

My go to eyeliner is always black liquid eyeliner, and this one is a pencil eyeliner. I am not really a huge fan of this eyeliner mainly because it is a pencil. I do not like how pencils do now show up as dark and they do not glide on as easy as liquid eyeliner does. I would not buy this product.

The Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Hybrid Liner In Black is $18.00.

Seraphine Botanicals

Lychee + Gold

I love EVERYTHING rose gold, and this blush is no exception! It is a gorgeous color, and I love it on my skin tone. It is a very bright blush, which I do not normally even wear blush. This one would be fun to wear for a special occasion, but probably not my everyday wear. I would buy this product, but maybe just for the summer.

Lychee + Gold is $14.00.

Winky Lux

Double Matte Whip In Angel Food

I love love love matte lipstick. I was super excited to try this product! The color is subtle, but it looks very pretty on. It dries a really pretty color and without any cracks. Do you want to know my favorite part? My lips still feel super soft, which is always a plus for me when it comes to matte lipsticks. I would absolutely buy this product.

The Double Matte Whip In Angel Food is $13.00.

OFRA Cosmetics

Gold Rush Eyeshadow

The color of this eyeshadow is absolutely gorgeous, but it is very bold. It is not a color I would normally wear, but I think it is a fun color for summer. I might not buy this exact product, but if I did it would only be during the summer.

The Gold Rush Eyeshadow is $15.00.


The only other products used beside the items in the glam bag are: Sephora foundation and Two Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara.

Make sure to comment what your favorite products in this months glam bag are! I would love to hear your must haves and

Ipsy June Glam Bag Review

Hi, loves!

I am so excited that I have finally jumped on the ipsy train and decided to try out their monthly glam bags, so I can review them for y’all and give you my thoughts on the products. Friendly reminder that glam bags can be different for each customer due to preferences/wants/skin complexion, etc. Still, I am hoping this can give you an idea of what products out there are worth the buy and which ones are not.

Makeup Bag

This makeup bag is simple but cute. On ipsy’s website, it describes the bag with the caption: “this loud and proud pouch is a not-so-subtle reminder to *always* speak your mind!”

BioRepublic SkinCare

Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask and Green Tea Detox Purifying Fiber Mask

I literally got the worst sunburn on my face today while I was laying out at the pool, and the Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask felt like literal heaven as soon as I put it on. It automatically cooled my face down and made it not feel as dry and painful. I am literally obsessed with this facemask and now I want to go buy a bunch of them. This product is definitely one you should look into for the summer.

The Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask and Green Tea Detox Purifying Mask are both $14.95 for a set of 3 or $44.95 for a box of 10.

NYX Professional Makeup

Whipped Lip & Cheek Souffle: Cocoa Bean

I used this as a lipstick for this review post. I am a lover of all nude lipsticks, and this one was no exception. It is light feeling on my lips and super easy to put on. It is nude, so it does not stand out a whole lot as a lipstick, but I still love it. I would definitely buy this product.

The Whipped Lip & Cheek Souflee: Cocoa Bean is normally $6.00, but is currently on sale for $4.20. 

theBalm Cosmetics

INSTAIN Long-Wearing Staining Powder Blush in Pinstripe

This blush is a little darker than the colors that I normally go for. I tend to go for light pinks or I just do not wear blush at all. I actually think this blush turned out very pretty when I put it on, and I was happily surprised at how much I liked it. I would not buy this product during the summer, but I might during the fall.

The INSTAIN Long-Wearing Staining Powder Blush in Pinstripe is $22.00. 

City Color Cosmetics

Shimmer Shadow: Cheers to Life

I tend to keep my eyes looking pretty natural and I mainly use various pinks (I know what a shocker). I did not think I was going to like this eyeshadow at all because it is very orange, very sparkly and very bright. However, I think this would be a super cute summer look. You literally can just brush it on, throw on some eyeliner and mascara and be good to go. I think if I was brave enough I would buy this product for the summer.

Shimmer Shadow: Cheers to Life is normally $4.99, but it is currently on sale for $3.99.

Skone Cosmetics

Insanely Intense Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner: Brown

I was super excited to get a liquid eyeliner because that is literally all that I use, but I was not excited to get brown because I only ever wear black liquid eyeliner. This liquid eyeliner is super easy to use, and I actually do not mind this brown tone at all. It still looks pretty dark, and I absolutely love it paired with the shimmer shadow above.

Insanely Intense Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner: Brown is normally $20.00, but it is currently on sale for $15.00. 

PS: The only extra makeup item I am wearing in the photographs is: Sephora foundation and Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.
