IPSY GLAM BAG ⋆JUNE 2017⋆ REVIEW & SWATCHES

Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service that includes 4 to 5 beauty items (varies from makeup, skincare, fragrance, haircare, and tools based on your personal preference survey) for $10 a month including shipping and tax. All the items come in an exclusively designed cosmetic bag. There are also detailed tutorials and exclusive offers for each product on Ipsy site. Ipsy is available in both U.S. and Canada (additional $5 fee applies).

This month’s cosmetic bag is a canvas bag with a big bold smile on it.

All the items add up to a total value of $39.30. The product selection became more relevant to my personal preference as I keep my Ipsy profile updated and write feedbacks about the received item. I enjoyed all the products, continue reading to find out the reasons!

Item #1

NYX Professional Makeup
Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé in Cocoa Bean – Nude Brown – FULL SIZE! Value $6.00!

First I want to thank Ipsy for sending me this beautiful shade (not sure if it was a random selection), I was praying for it when the preview came out because nudes/browns are my favorite range of colors. This multitasking Lip & Cheek Stain is lightweight and moisturizing at the same time, similar to the YSL lip & cheek stain. The formula is creamy and soft just like Soufflé. It was easy to blend out and applied evenly when using as a liquid blush. It has a medium coverage with a creamy/satin finish. The shade is a nude brown with a red undertone, and it is a very elegant color. The pointed applicator provides precision when applying on lips. I love everything about this product except the strong scent (the signature NYX Vanilla/sweets smell), but it is just my personal preference and it does not affect the performance of the product.

No special offers for NYX at this time, but here is the link to shop: NYX Professional Makeup

There were a lot of textures on my lips because they were dry and cracked due to my unhealthy schedule, not because of the formula (TBH, it still applied nicely even my lips were not in a good condition).

Item #2

Luna By Luna Cosmetics
Eyeshadow in Jace – FULL SIZE! Value $15.00!

This single eyeshadow is my favorite item from Ipsy glam bag this month (and we have the same name, what a coincidence lol). It is my first time trying a product from this brand. I was not sure about the color when I first saw the color on the website, but I was enchanted the moment I put this on my lids. The shade is literally a warm rose-hued baby born out of the pink and orange. It is so unique and flattering with a velvety matte finish. The texture is smooth and effortless to blend with a buildable pigmentation and no fallouts. I used this single shade for a soft, monochromatic eye makeup look. Both swatches and makeup were primed with LORAC’s BEHIND THE SCENES EYESHADOW PRIMER.

Item #3 

Pure Brazilian
Shine Ultra Light Nourishing Oil – SAMPLE SIZE (0.5 oz)! Value $3.30!

I think Ipsy is listening to me in some ways and they answered me with more hair oil! I have extremely dry and damaged long hair due to my hair’s natural texture, permanent perm, and coloring. With some hair oil, I can mask all that imperfections while I strive to improve it to a healthier state. This lightweight hair oil gives my hair an instant shine and a defrizzing effect. The scent is perfumey, but it became subtle once evenly distributed. I applied a small amount to my no-heat curls; my hair felt soft and shiny throughout the day. I really like the oil and I am probably going purchase the full-size bottle.

Item #4

PÜR
Mini Fully Charged Magnetic Mascara – TRAVEL SIZE (4 ml)! Value $12.00!

I have short and point-down eyelashes, the heated eyelash curler cannot even save them. This mascara instantly lifted my lashes with its thickening and lengthening results (about 3 coats). It does not say waterproof anywhere but this mascara was actually smudging free and my makeup looked defined and clean over a prolong period of wearing. I consider it an amazing mascara and my lower lashes looked very nice.

Item #5 (the last but not the least!)

theBalm Cosmetics
Balm Springs Blush- SAMPLE SIZE (0.8 / 0.028 oz)! Value $3.00!

I am a huge fan of theBalm, and I always enjoy receiving their sample because they make beautiful/travel-friendly/lovely-designed minis! Also, Balm Springs is such a cute pun and perfect name for this earthy rose shade. It claims to be looking “amazing on all skin tones” because the shade is basically an enhancing blush color for your healthy and natural glow. I love its sheer coverage and light formula, no need to worry about putting too much on the cheeks.
