June Ipsy Glam Bag

Month two of my Ipsy subscription!  And again I'm incredibly pleased.  These are FULL SIZE products, not some dinky little samples.  Legit peeps.  

Here's this month's aborbz bag.  Leopard and neon.  I want a dress like this or something.  Seems a wee bit smaller than last month's bag but, really, who cares.  

First up, NYX Cream Blush in Orange:  I totally love NYX products and I already own a ton of them but I had no clue they even made cream blushes.  And if I had known, I probably wouldn't have picked Orange for myself.  I was sure it was gonna make me look like a doofus but oh my goodness I love it so much.  It's crazy pigmented but it blends really easily.  And on the cheeks it's more coral-y then orange-y.  Be not afraid.  

Chella Highlighter Pencil:  It's a nude peachy color.  I've recently been using a Rimmel nude eyeliner for my lower waterline (instead of a typical white liner) and love it.  This gives a similar effect but it's smooth and creamy and easy to apply.  I like to use it as a highlighter right on my brow bone or even blend it onto my lid if I want my black eyeliner to pop more.  

Starlooks Lip Pencil in Bare:  I'm still prreettyyy new to lip pencils.  I mostly only use them if I'm applying a really bold color and I want to prevent it from feathering around my mouth.  However, this pencil is a lovely mauvey shade and applies really smoothly.  I'm excited to try this out more.  

J.Cat Sparkling Cream Palette: Take the word "sparkling" very literal.  There is straight-up glitter in this eyeshadow.  When I first saw it, I audibly gasped because I like shiny things.  Then I realized it's not really daytime wearable since I'm no longer 13.  BUT I think it could really be a fun night-time shadow.  If I ever actually went out at night instead of eating Starbursts in my pajamas while watching Vampire Diaries.  
Cailyn Gel Eyeliner in Iron: This stuff is for real.  It's a dark grey color and it would take a lifetime to use everything in that little pot.  It also comes with a built-in brush which are usually pretty low quality but this one is great.  I tested it on my hand when I first got it and this stuff did not smudge ALL DAY. I even showered the next morning and it barely faded off my hand.  Awesome quality.  

Ipsy is really kicking butt lately.  If you're interested in giving it a try, click HERE.  (<< that's my refer a friend link!  If you sign up, they might give me extra goodies in my bag to write about!)


  1. I am loving Ipsy. It was great to see that they included 5 full sized products. I love learning about all the other boxes and none of them do it as well as Ipsy

    1. I agree! I think they're a lot more makeup focused than the other subscriptions and I'm a bit of a makeup junkie so it's perfect.
