Sensationally Sun Kissed ☼ July 2014 IPSY Glam Bag


☼ Hello my gorgeous glamour stars! Today I am going to share what arrived in my IPSY July 2014 Glam Bag as well as my first impressions of the products. I love my IPSY subscription because through the glam bags I get the opportunity to try out amazing products and discover new brands that I might have not given a second thought to before. Plus it feels like you're opening a present every time the hot pink bubble mailer arrives in your mailbox :-) This month I received...


Bare Minerals 5 in 1 BB Cream Eyeshadow

gorgeous neutral cream eyeshadow that lasts on your eyes! The BB trend continues, it looks like the newest trend will be BB Cream Eyeshadows and I'm okay with that! The formulation is lovely and most importantly it does not crease or smudge once it sets. Bare Minerals promises that these shadows will... 

1. (Provide) Long-Wear Color
2. Prime
3. Brighten
4. Smooth
5. Protect (SPF 15)

Sounds great right? Everything you need to create a perfect eye look in one small tube. The BB cream eyeshadow comes in 10 "seductive" neutral shades which I can't wait to check out in Sephora. So far I am really enjoying the sample size of the product and I'm happy that IPSY let their subscribers try a hot new product that recently launched.  

Befine Food Skin Care ~ Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15

A daily moisturizer for your face, neck, chest, and hands. The sample size is perfect to pop into your purse or makeup bag, and it's definitly a decent size so good job IPSY! It's formulated with rosemary, pomegranate, and rice. Awesome combination, right? Befine is a natural brand so this moisturizer is free of artifical colors, fragrance, and parabens. I am enjoying it so far but I'll keep you update. 

Whet Nail Polish ~ "Facetious"

I have one word for this nail polish... stunning! It's a beautiful cobalt blue that grabs your attention. It's bold, it's bright, and it's one of my favorite colors. I am really happy that this shade was included in my IPSY glam bag :-) 

Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm ~ "Unique Pink"

A crayon lip balm! I love it! I am a huge fan of lip products that come in a crayon-like form because they are convient and super easy to apply. I received a sheer light pink shade so it does not give much pigmentation, however I'm not dissapointed because it's not supposed to give opaque coverage. I popped this into my makeup bag, and I am loving it so far. It's moisturizing, gives the lips a beautiful sheen, and it smells super nice (a delicate mint scent!). 

Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil SPF 08

The last product in my IPSY glam bag was the Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil. It has a fun beachy-coconut-y scent with a hint of sunscreen, which I find very appealing. Once applied with the handy dandy spray pump it gives the skin an amazing healthy glow the makes you look radiant! The formulation is great as well, it sinks into the skin nicely and doesn't feel uncomfortably greasy. I only tried the oil out on my arms so far, but I can't wait to give it a whirl the next time I'm down at the beach. Beach Tip: everything is best in moderation including the sun. So protect your skin and limit your exposure to the harsh rays, however take the opportunity to expose your body to the sunlight so your body can soak in the Vitamin D it needs to function :-) 

Hot Pink Scalloped Bag

Each month all your goodies arrive in an adorable makeup bag. I now have quite the IPSY glam bag collection however I always get excited to add a new one to my stash. I find them to be incredibly useful, they are great for your makeup, as purse organizers, and jewelry pouches, just to name a few. Plus they are almost always cute. The July bag is probably one of my favorites, it is a hot pink "leather" zippered bag with scalloped edges. Adorable, right? 

I hightly recommend IPSY if you are looking to join a beauty subscription service. It is totally worth the $10 a month charge especially since the value the bag is always a lot more, plus the shipping is free so in my opinion it is a bargain! 

Are you an IPSY subscriber? Let me know what was in your July bag and how you like the products so far!
