For those of you who do not know what Ipsy is, it’s a monthly beauty subscription service that is about $10/month. Each month, you will receive 4-5 full size or deluxe samples inside a cute makeup bag. If you want to check it out, or subscribe, I have a link to Ipsy below this post.
Let’s do June quick & dirty…
June’s theme was “Swim into Beauty”
First was the J. Cat Beauty Liptitude Hydrating Lip Stain. It is a full size product worth $5.99. It is one of my fave lip products right now! You can get it HERE & 25% off using code IPSY615.
Next was Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Foundation Primer. It is only 0.25oz (full size is 1oz worth $36.00) making this worth $8.50. I like how sheer it feels! You can get it HERE (sorry, no discount)
Next was BioRepublic SkinCare Sheet Mask Trio. The masks have a nice cooling effect. Right now, you can get the 8 mask skin kit for $30.00 & free shipping with the code IPSYBIOREPUBLIC HERE, otherwise, one mask is worth $4.99, making this set worth $14.97.
Next was Glamierre Flat Top Concealer Brush. It’s a small brush and right now, I have no use for it. If you want one, you can get 15% off using the code IPSY15 HERE. This is worth $5.95.
Last was the tre’StiQue Mini Shadow Crayon. This is only one side of the product. The full product has the smudger on the other end. With that in mind, the full is worth $26.00, and I figured half that price would make sense ($13.00). I really like how nicely it glides on. If you want one, you can get 15% off $35.00 or more & free shipping with the code IPSYINSIDER15 HERE.
This makes June’s bag worth a total of $48.41! I would call that a WIN!
July is next!!! The theme is “Summer Lovin”
Let’s get the ball rolling with the Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics 2-in-1 Shadow/Liner. Right out of the bag, I would say this pencil is too sharp/hard for my eyes, but with a little work on the tip, it actually looks and feels nice! I’m not sure if this is a full size product yet because according to the website HERE, it’s not yet available for purchase. However, when it does become available, it will be worth $16.00.
The next item up, is the Jersey Shore Cosmetics Mongongo Vanilla Coconut Cream Lip Conditioner. It does smell like vanilla/coconut, but I can’t say it does anything more than any other chapstick I use. If you like this product, you can get it HERE and 50% off lip conditioners with the code IPSY50. This product is worth $10.00.
These Crown Brush Professional Tweezers is one thing I am happy for! I was in need of new tweezers, so I’m glad to have gotten these in my bag! They are a hit & miss when it comes to pulling out hair, but I think it works well enough for me. If you like this, you can get 30% off with the code IPSYTWZR30 HERE. These are worth $6.99.
Next up is the City Color Cosmetics HD Powder. This is only 4g worth of product, compared to 7g for full size ($5.99). This product is suppose to ‘set your foundation for a smooth, matte finish.’ I think it feels soft, and it leaves my face shine free. If you like this, you can get a free contour effects pallet with purchase of $30 or more with the code IPSY30HD HERE. This size is worth $3.42.
Last is the Coolway Beachy Salt Spray. It is meant to leave you hair looking wavy and beachy. I don’t think it does that to my hair, but then again, my hair is already wavy. The full size is 3.3oz worth $12.95 making my 0.5oz product worth $1.96. If you want this, you can get 35% off & a free knotty girl brush with the code IPSY4U HERE.
So it looks like this bag is worth a grand total of $38.37! I call that another WIN! I am very happy with the products I received in both of these bags! I use them all almost everyday!!
Just keep in mind, I am not a makeup professional, nor do I claim to be. I don’t know everything there is to know, heck, I don’t really know a lot. However, I do like learning new things, and I do like sharing what little information I know. Is this makeup subscription right for you? Maybe, maybe not. There are tons other subscription services out there, this is just one that I chose to subscribe to.
That’s all I have for now! Thank you!
