JULY ipsy 2014

I already had a bad feeling about this months bag when it arrived in my mail box wide OPEN. Luckily the bag and contents were still inside and thankfully I hadn't cashed in any point this month or that product would have been loose in the bag and probably would have fallen out at some point.

It should also probably go to show you that I usually am so super excited to get the ipsy unboxings up that they usually are filmed, edited and posted within 24 hours of the bag arriving to me. Well..lets just say its Friday and I received this sometime early last week...I still think ipsy is a fabulous subscription service. I mean I still think that for $10 a month you get some new products to play with that you may never have purchased or tried before. I don't know. I am going to keep subscribed. And YES I do pay for ipsy with 100% of my own money.

Products that came in this months bag :
bareMinerals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - I've never tried this before. While it is a tiny little sample, I think I can get a decent grap of whether I like this product or not. I like seeing brands like this one in my ipsy bags !

Befine Food Skin Care Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 - I have never heard of this brand and before. Great purse sized hand lotion. Smells like rosemary, which for some reason just reminds me of either chicken or dead people. I know. Random.

Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil SPF 08 - I am still not sure if I am going to open this just yet. For me Summer is basically over. My kids are back in school and I already have a decent tan already. Plus I don't know how I feel about them sending a same brand sunscreen 2 months ago and now a tan enhancer now ?
Pixi Beauty Mini Tinted Brilliance Balm - I have not been overly impressed with other Pixi products I have received from ipsy in the past. This scroll up tiny pencil lip balm is perfectly pocket and purse size. The formulation is similar to any other lip balm, it is however a tad tacky in texture.

wHet Nail Polish in Facetious - I haven't tried this out yet because, well it is a jelly type polish. Or seems to be. Don't get jelly and gel confused. Gel you need a lamp to set where as jelly's are intentionally see through and I am just not normally a fan of that formulation. The color is gorgeous bright blue. Maybe I will try it on Sophia first, she can be my guinea pig.

Overall the bag is OK. Not overwhelmingly amazing but not a total dud either. 
What do you think about this months bag ?


  1. This is lovely i would like to try this myself

  2. i think this is not such a great bag this month. i would have expected more. i am glad nothing broke or fell out during the shipping process.

  3. I would actually love to try this bag! Could you also review Vain Pursuits? I'd love to hear what you think of their skincare!

    1. I keep hearing about Vain Pursuits! They do personalized skincare right?
