It’s time for my monthly review of the Ipsy Glam Bag. If you aren’t familiar with Ipsy, it’s is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription where you get five full or deluxe size samples of a variety of products and a cute makeup bag all for $10! You never know what you’ll get and I’ve been lucky to receive a great selection of products almost every month so far. This month’s theme was Summer Lovin’ and the products came in a cute ikat print bag. Here’s what was inside this month:
Nicka K New York HQ Quad Eyeshadow
This full-size eye-shadow quad retails for $4.99. This palette of versatile neutral shades felt velvety and was richly pigmented. It applied smoothly and had staying power (I primed with Urban Decay eye-shadow primer).
Teeez Cosmetics Read My Lips Lipstick
I loved the fun skull motif and the fonts on the packaging of this product. The Killing Me Softly shade was said to be a light red but it was more of a bright coral. It applied smoothly and my lips felt hydrated but the color was not for me and gave me a washed out look.
Eva NYC Freshen Up Dry Shampoo
This dry shampoo is aluminum free and had a fresh scent. It worked as promised. There was no residue and it gave my hair a little volume and the instant refresh needed in the summer heat. The retail price of the full size product is $24 and Ipsy was offering a 65% off coupon which would bring it down to $8.40. I love the Bastie dry shampoo for $5.99 so I think I would use this as a backup.
pūr~lisse pur-bright ultra skin brightening serum
I loved the pur~lisse cleanser that I received in my March Ipsy Bag and was excited to try their serum. This serum brightens your skin tone and helps to prevent future damage. I used this before my moisturizer and loved how it made my skin feel. The retail price for the full size product is $76 and Ipsy is offering a 20% off coupon. It’s pricey but if you are looking for something to help reduce sun damage it might be worth trying.
City Color Cosmetics HD Powder
This finishing powder sets your makeup with a smooth matte finish and helps prevent shine. It blurred fine lines and gave me a soft glow. It’s affordable with a retail price of $5.99.
