Like my Allure Beauty Box, I wasn’t too thrilled about the ipsy July Glam Bag when I peeked at the contents. But unlike Allure, once I got the products in my hands I fell in love! They are all products I wouldn’t reach for normally, but interesting enough to make me want to try them.
If you’re new to ipsy, it is a monthly beauty sample bag with 4-5 random products each month. You also earn points for shares & reviews and can redeem those points for pretty things – like more makeup! It’s only $10/month and you can cancel anytime. Click here to sign up.
The theme for July is Summer Lovin’ and the included makeup bag is one of my favorites so far. It’s bright, colorful and features a playful pattern.
Let’s see what’s inside:
AURORA Gel Effect Nail Polish
I prefer not to receive polishes in my bag, but one sneaks through every once in a while and it usually ends up being a super cute shade.
Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics 2-in-1 Shadow/Liner
I’ve heard of Jelly Pong Pong and was curious about their products. It’s nice to finally be able to try the brand.
Eau Thermale Avène Cleanance Gel Soapless Cleanser
This cleanser claims to eliminate impurities and excess sebum without stripping the skin. I’m excited to see if the claims hold up!
Octavio Molina Hair La Playa Salt Spray
Sea salt sprays and my hair do not get along. They typically make my hair hard and icky feeling, but I’m always up for giving one I haven’t tried a shot. Who knows – maybe this one will work for me.
Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Lip Balm
I’m a fan of Be a Bombshell and am so glad I learned more about them during Cosmoprof. I haven’t tried this balm, but it’ll be interesting to see how this $14 balm compares to my less expensive favorites.
