June 2015 Ipsy Glam Bag – Swim Into Beauty

Ipsy’s Glam Bag is a beauty subscription service that sends out 5-6 deluxe samples or full sized products every month in a cute makeup bag for $10. Bags are customizable based on your beauty preferences and ratings of past samples. You can check out my past Ipsy reviews here or subscribe to Ipsy here! They do have a waitlist but every now and then they have a skip the waitlist thing where it takes just a few easy steps to skip the queue and start getting your bag.

Ipsy’s theme for the June Glam Bag was “Swim into beauty.” Let’s see how swimmingly they did…

J. Cat Beauty Liptitude Hydrating Lip Stain in Hikilicious – I first met J. Cat Beauty through Ipsy last year and I’ve liked their products so far. This is thicker than the average stain and really more like a very thick pigmented gloss. It definitely stains though so fair warning! This color is really pretty and wearable for me. I did have to go hunting for the shade name which is a little annoying. The packaging only lists the color code so I had to go figure out that LLS117 is named Hikilicious. This is full sized and worth $5.99.

Highly pigmented, hydrating, semi-matte lip stain. A delightfully creamy and lightweight stain for any occasion. Silky, smooth and packed with Vitamin E and plants extract, this stain is your go-to glam tool for sexy. Liptitude will last 24/7 and give you some serious ATTITUDE.

Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Foundation Primer – Smashbox is known for their primers and I’ve gotten quite a few samples of them over the years. I’m always happy to get some more though! The full size is $36 for 1 oz so this 0.25 oz sample is worth roughly $9.

Create a perfect canvas for foundation application with this silky, lightweight blend of vitamins A & E, grape seed extract and green tea. Worn alone or under foundation, this best-selling, oil-free primer helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for flawless skin with a velvety-smooth finish.

This primer diffuses the light hitting your skin to blur out imperfections for an even, soft-focus look while also making your makeup last all day long.

Glamierre Flat Top Concealer Brush – I always love getting brushes from Ipsy! I find the thought of using a brush like this for concealer a little odd though. This brush is supposedly $12.95 and on sale for $5.95 but it looks like everything I see on the Glamierre site is on sale (which I always find fishy) so I’m valuing it at the $5.95 price.

This duo-fiber synthetic hair brush is perfect for all around use to improve your complexion! This brush flawlessly applies concealer and is perfect for contouring and blending in your makeup!

BeFine Cucumber Facial Mask – Love face masks! Always happy to try a new one and this is a pretty good size for a mask sample! Time for an at home spa night soon I think! The BeFine website is a bit dated and not very user friendly but I managed to track down the full size which is $25 for 4 oz so this 1 oz sample is worth $6.25.

Exactly what your skin craves, this Cucumber Cooling Mask revitalizes, repairs and rejuvenates the complexion. Cucumber Extract removes dead skin cells while soothing and tightening the skin. Pomegranate Extract, which is loaded with antioxidants, helps repair the skin and keeps it looking its youngest. Watermelon Extract reduces the break down of DNA in skin cells while keeping them hydrated.

tre’StiQue Mini Shadow Crayon in Venetian Gold – I’m not a big fan of shadow crayons… This is pretty much a miss for me. It looks like all of the products on the tre’StiQue website are crayons so I guess that’s their schtick, bad pun intended. The full size is $26 but I can’t find the fill amount. They do sell the minis in trios for $32 though so I’ll put a value of about $10.67 on this.

This amazing 12 hour eye shadow has customizable color that you can build from a subtle wash to intense vibrancy. It’s also super blendable with a crease free, smooth finish.

How to Use: Glide directly on eye lid, use as a highlighter on upper eye lid or in eye crease as a contour. Colors can be layered over a lighter shade for a softer look or layered under a darker shade for a more dramatic eye. Customize, blend and build as you wish.

This product is free of d5, parabens, talc, synthetic fragrances, petro chemicals and also cruelty free.

This Glam Bag is worth roughy $37.86 which makes it a tie for lowest value bag ever. That being said I’ll use all but the shadow crayon and that’s easy enough to gift/swap so while the monetary value may be a little low I’m by no means disappointed in the products. I’m not sure they really executed well on the “Swim into beauty” theme but it’s still a decent bag!
