Ipsy’s June Glam Bag!

Sorry I’m so late this month it has been a bit hectic with the kids and the Hubs being deployed. But there’s no time to waste let’s get right into it. This month Ipsy’s theme was “Volume Up”.

“This loud and proud pouch is a not so subtle reminder to ‘always’ speak your mind!”

I’m not going to lie I was initially not excited about this bag. Nothing seemed appealing if maybe only the nail polish. But once I looked into it I was stoked.

What got my attention the most was this Privai Matte Moisturizer. During the summer I love to have a very matte base because I do tend to get a lot more oily.

Enhanced with Vitamins A, C and E, this oil-free moisturizer is perfect for normal to oily skin types. Natural anti-bacterial properties from Sage Extract help repair blemished skin while Grapefruit Peel Extract clarifies the complexion. Privai Website 
This product retails for $30 for a big bottle. Yikes! Although I will say  so far I like it. Its taken a lot of trial and error with primers and foundations because I’ve experienced some break up with my foundation and I’m not sure whats causing it.

Up next is this nail polish by Margaret Dabbs London. The color is phenomenal. It screams summer days at the beach! This treatment enriched nail polish in Green Dailily is super thick and pigmented that one swipe guarantees a streak free application. I already tried it and love it. It reminds me of the “gel” nail polishes that are out there now a days.

To me this formula screams salon quality at home!

I can’t find the price in dollars on the website only in pounds. which 14 pounds is about 17 US dollars.

This is another little gem I was surprised to like!

Doucce Maxlash Volumizer Mascara. Let me begin by saying the brush and bristles themselves remind me a lot of the TooFaced Better than sex mascara. Also, the formula is very similar in the sense that it makes my lashes very dark and full looking. Except it isn’t as thick and that makes removing it super easy!

The big bottle retails for $22. The website claims, “The creamy and buildable formula is clump-resistant, flake proof, smudge proof, and resistant to sweat and humidity.” And its all true! So far I LOVE it!

I’ve received Hey Honey products in the past and thoroughly enjoy them. This is the second mud mask I receive and I’m very excited to try it!

Ok, question! Am I the only that can’t figure out how to use these small samples of blush?  I love The Balm and therefore use these as eyeshadow.

Drive your beauty routine into full swing with Balm Springs® – a new long-wearing blush from theBalm® Cosmetics. This earthy rose shade compliments all skin tones. The talc-free, fade-resistant formula is perfect for hot days and even hotter nights… The Balm Website

In the end this months bag provided a lot of hidden gems.
