Review: June Ipsy Glam Bag


Have you heard of ipsy? Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription that sends you five beauty items (plus a cute little bag) based on a survey of your interest. This is my second month as a subscriber. I used to be a Birchbox subscriber, but I wasn't getting things I loved. Ipsy sends out larger sized items and after seeing what other people have received in their bags, I felt like it was a good fit for me. Also, bonus, it comes every month in a bright pink bubble mailer. Who doesn't love pink mail?!

Here's what I got this month: 

Each month's subcription always comes with a cute little bag, too!

My thoughts on the products:

I feel like they were spot-on with what I want this month. 

This was a full-size mascara. I only opened it to smell it because other people who got it said it smelled bad...and it does. But, I haven't used it yet because I like to open a new mascara each season. I've learned a little about mascara/eye make up bacteria, and I like to keep it at bay, so I go through 4 mascaras a year. I'm always excited when I get a mascara as a sample! (retails for $15)

I'm not a huge lip gloss girl, but the color of the NYX one I got was great.  It is is called "lip butter." I'd say it does feel nice and not sticky like some other glosses I've tried. I'll probably throw this in my purse for when I need a pick me up. I got a full-size product. (retails for $5)

I've been trying to figure out my eyebrows.  Some peoples' look so nice. Mine, not so much. It may be the amount of time, or lack thereof that I spend on them. This eyebrow pencil came at the right time. It's a full-size product! (retails for $13)

I just got the Not Your Mothers' brand sea salt spray and have been spraying on my hair after I curl it. I feel like it gives my hair some texture and thickness that it lacks naturally. I tried this Marc Anthony one out, and I couldn't tell much difference from the Not Your Mothers'. This was just a sample, but a very generous one at 1.52 oz, so I'll get many uses out of it.  (retails for $9 full-size)

I'm not much of a fragrance wearer. I have a spray from Victoria's Secret that I spritz on from time to time, but that's it. This was just the travel sprayer size, but I probably won't use it up for a long time. (travel size retails for $7)

So, if you do the math, I got 3 full-sized products that total $28 retail plus the $7 sample and the sample which is about $3 of the $9 spray. That's $38 of products for my $10 subscription. I'd say that's a good deal.  If you feel like giving ipsy a try, here's my referral link. I get some points toward free products if you join.

This was my ipsy bag from last month: sunscreen, facial mask, eyeshadow, moisturizer, and some sort of spray water for my face. I haven't quite figure out the spray water thing, but I love the moisturizer and have almost finished the sample.

Also, tip: if you want to take top down picture of bottles and other things that might roll, stick a little roll of tape on them and tape them to your flat surface. Worked like a charm to keep the beach spray in place!
