Ipsy June 2014

Yay! My first Ipsy bag has arrived!! For those of you who don’t know, Ipsy is a $10/month beauty bag that includes samples and full-sized products. I was on a wait-list for about 3-4 weeks until I was sent an email saying my first bag would arrive the middle of June. It was delivered in gorgeous pink shipping material and opened up to this lovely bag. The bag itself probably costs $10, and the beauty products are amazing. The theme is all about summer and the products seem to all correlate to create one main look. Overall, I was really impressed with my first bag and plan to use all of the products included. Let’s begin!

The first product is Nicka K New York Shimmer Eyeliner in Blue. This is a full-size liquid liner that is super shimmery. The bright teal color adds a nice pop for a winged look. I applied this and it went on fairly smooth. One thing that did catch my eye was even though it doesn’t say it is waterproof, it sort of is. I wore this liner for about an hour then tried to take it off, but after scrubbing with a makeup wipe it was still somewhat on my lids. This is good for beach or pool wear because it won’t glide off after jumping in.

Next is NYX Butter Gloss in Éclair. This is a full-size gloss that is the most creamy gloss of the century! It is a bit thick so be mindful when building up. The color is a lovely nude/baby pink and works great with all skin tones. If you were wanting to stick with a waterproof theme, like with the eyeliner, I wouldn’t recommend this, but would rather go for a lipstain. Still, this is a great product!

Carol’s Daughter Sacred Tiare Anti-Breakage & Anti-Frizz Styling Cream is the only hair product of the bag. This sample-sized product is used for blow-drying or flat ironing in order to prevent breakage. It smells like fresh flowers and has a medium consistency. I haven’t heard of this product before, but am excited to try it out.

Ofra Universal Eyebrow Pencil is next and is a light-brown matte color. This pencil is supposed to match all skin tones, hence “universal”, and is a waxy texture in order to keep hairs in their place. The pencil is full-size and isn’t retractable.

The final product is Realtree for Her Eau de Parfum. At first when I smelled this sample-size perfume, I was a bit turned off. It has a strong floral scent, but fades into a sweet smell. My go-to perfume is Daisy by Marc Jacobs, and so I typically go more towards the crisp scents. This product may get used, or it may not. I will test it by wearing a full, busy day and then decide it’s true fate.
