July 2015 Ipsy

My Ipsy bag FINALLY came in yesterday.  This is the latest it has ever been.

Seeing that bright pink mailer in my mailbox did brighten my day instantly.

Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription that is $10.  It contains makeup, skin care, hair products and other beauty related items.  You take a beauty quiz first and they pick out 5 products for you each month.

The theme this month was “Summer Lovin’.”

  

This month’s bag is super cute!  I am planning on giving it to my sister since it would be the perfect bag for her!  It is completely her style!

Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics 2 in 1 Shadow/Liner

This uniquely formulated crayon doubles as an eyeliner for thick, precise lines as well as a perfectly-blended eye shadow.  Creamy texture with long-lasting hold.  Made with pure beeswax.  100% cruelty free.

This shadow retails for $16 (full size) on jellypongpong.com

I received this in the shade “bronze” and am so glad I did!  I love bronze shades and will totally use this as both a shadow and a liner too.  I’m hoping this really is creamy and long lasting.

Octavio Molina Hair La Play Salt Spray

A spray infused with Algae Extract for added moisture.  This spray uses the richness of the sea to create texture plus volume.

Use it on wet hair for extra volume and texture.

Use it on dry hair for separation and movement.

Spray on the roots and blow dry for extra lift.

100% cruelty free.

I’m not a huge fan of sea salt sprays.  They tend to leave my hair really dry and crunchy.  But the fact that I can use this as a volumizer spikes my interest.

The sample I received is half the size of the full size product.

The full size retails for $15.50.

Aurora Gel Effect Nail Polish

Gel Effect Nail Polish is made with the pros of gel polish and regular polish.  Like regular polish, it is easy and convenient to use and dries fast without a UV lamp.  Like gel polish, it stays shiny and durable for up to 2 weeks.  Finally, it can be easily removed with nail polish remover.

I have never tried a nail polish like this before.  I know Sally Hansen came out with their own version a while ago and I heard nothing but negative reviews on that line.

I received the shade “4 Alarm Fire” which is such a beautiful color!  I was expecting a red, but this is definitely more pink.

It also looks like I received the full size!  The only thing that concerns me is this:

“HOW TO USE?

  1. Apply the base coat.
  2. After 30 second, apply the nail color.
  3. After 45 second, apply the second coat.
  4. After 1 min, apply Aurora GEL EFFECT top coat.
  5. AURORA GEL EFFECT top coat dries in 3~4 min in the air.

For the best result, AURORA GEL EFFECT top coat is a must.”

 I don’t have the top coat!!!!!!  I’m going to try using it without the top coat and see what happens.
Vasanti Cosmetics Brighten Up! Exfoliating Cleanser

Rev up your skin with this powerful exfoliating treatment that’s packed with the natural ingredients necessary to get a bright, sexy glow.  The best part?  One step and you’re done!  You’ll see smoother, brighter skin as soon as you rinse.

100% paraben-free

100% vegan

Not tested on animals

I love trying out new cleansers and exfoliating products.  This is made in Canada and is 99% natural.

It’s pretty pricy though ($34).  I will make sure to use this sparingly!

Be a Bombshell Cosmetics Lip Balm

Formula: Hydrating formula to leave lips feeling silky smooth with a hint of color.

Bombshell Application:  Apply to top and bottom lips for full coverage.

Bombshell Tip:  Reapply as needed to keep lips hydrated all day.

This is probably the product I am least excited to try.  I’m not a huge fan of be a bombshell products and the color I received (French Kiss) is not my color at all.

I think I will pass this on to someone else.

The crazy thing is this retails for $14!!!

The stand out products for me this month and the eyeliner/shadow pencil and the exfoliating cleanser.

I’d love to know or see what you guys received this month!  Send me a picture or let me know on my social media accounts!
