After last month’s amazing bag I couldn’t wait to dive into my June ipsy bag. As soon as I got it I set up my camera and got to opening it. The video has far surpassed my expectations, getting over 700 views on ipsy’s website! Apparently my little blooper in the middle really cracked people up…I even made somebody spit out their iced tea! Score! So, check out the video, look for my “eewww” face, and then check out my reviews!
The June ipy bag claimed to have customized this bag to my skin tone, eye color, hair color, and quiz questions from when I signed up. There was a lot of different shades that I saw in other YouTube videos…so I’m sure they actually did. I suppose it would help if I remembered what my answers where. I will say that I’m beyond thrilled that EACH AND EVERY product in my June ipsy bag was a FULL sized product! Here is my June ipsy bag breakdown!
Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil~ $18.00
This is a great shade and a great product. I tested it on my water line, in the inner corner of my eye, as a brow bone highlighter, and even as an under eye concealer and it worked fantastically for each application. It is definitely the stand out item of the June ipsy bag! I love the NYX blush but not necessarily as a blush which makes this a winner for being great at exactly what it is meant for!!
This blush is not a color that I will use for blush BUT I did try it out as a bronzer and as an eyeshadow and I loved it. It wasn’t as strong for a blush as I thought it would be and for a sun kissed, straight from the pool glow, it could actually work. I played with my stipple brush and with a bit of control it could actually be worked with as a blush. I doubt it will be a “go to” blush for me but still a NYX product I’m happy to add to my collection.
This lip pencil is perfectly fine in texture, usability, and quality it is just not in a color that I will use. I did try it and it was a pale, washed out, brownish tint and it made me look incredibly emo and 80′s. Since I don’t bother with lip liner typically I certainly won’t be bothering with a color that doesn’t work in my favor. I was, however, happy to learn that they are cruelty free!
Well, you guys saw in the video that I just straight up SUCK as applying false lashes so I haven’t actually tried applying these yet. The company seems to be newer and I couldn’t find many reviews on the product themselves but I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. As soon as I use these I will instagram a picture and tweet my thoughts.
This company is incredibly affordable and I appreciate that. They also don’t shy away from the dramatic and that’s fantastic as well. I did try this product out on my eyes and it was a HUGE mistake. I was fishing glitter chunks from my eye for most of the night. That doesn’t even begin to speak of how long it stayed on my face. A couple people suggested using it as body glitter and I’m sure that would work—but I LOATHE glitter. I won’t be using this.
Total Cost of my June Ipsy Bag~ $43.98
Overall I love the look of the bag this month, the products were good quality but unfortunately this was not a favorite for me. Much like the ‘pink’ bag there were just too many I couldn’t use or use the way they were meant. That lip liner and glitter shadow will never see the light of day again. As for the rest I’ll work them in.
