June Ipsy Review

About a week an a half ago I got an e-mail saying my June Ipsy bag was on its way. I was psyched to get it, in the hopes that I would like it a lot better then Birchbox, which didn't really do it for me. 

So I waited.

And Waited.

And Waited.

I saw on a bunch of blogs what other people got, and still no pretty pink envelope in my mailbox. FINALLY it showed up yesterday. I'm not sure why it took so long to get here, does anyone else get their Ipsy really late? Is it because I'm in Maine? I should look to see where it ships from.

First look: I love the pretty pink envelope

Second look: The leopard print bag isn't exactly my style, but it's cute and a good size for putting makeup in for travel. There's no real info card for Ipsy, they just tell you the brands that were featured in this month's bag. I would have preferred a card, just because I like knowing more about what I got, but it's not a big deal. 

J. Cats Beauty Eyelashes and Eyelash Glue- $3.99

I'm not a big fake eyelash fan, mostly because I don't know how to wear them without them looking fake and I don't exactly have anyplace to wear them to... so I probably won't use these.

Starlooks Tickle Me Pink Lip Pencil-$12.00

This lip liner goes on smoothly and the color lasts awhile... not sure Tickle Me Pink is my color, but it is pretty. 

NYX Mosaic Powder Blush- $7.00
I love how cute this powder is... in fact I didn't want to use it because that would mess up the design, but I wanted to check out the color. I'm quite pale, so blush often looks silly on my, but this one was perfect. It added a hint of color without being overpowering. 

J. Cats Beauty Sparkling Cream Palette- $4.49

I thought this was eyeshadow at first, which I was okay with. I don't usually use sparkly eyeshadow, but it would be a fun change up... but then I saw that it's not supposed to be used on the eye area so I'm a little confused. Not sure what I would use "body sparkles" for since I'm not in middle school. The colors are pretty though. 

Cailyn Cosmetics Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner with brush- $21

This was my favorite item in the bag. I've never played with gel eyeliner before, and was a little scared because my previous attempts at liquid eyeliner were a bust, but this was so easy to use and didn't smudge or make a mess. The brush is easy to use and you can use just a little for something subtle, or a lot for a smoky eye look. Love love love this! 

Overall my bag was valued at $48.48 not including the bag itself OR any of the discounts you can get on purchasing items from the bag. Not a bad deal at all for a bag of full-sized beauty products that I paid just $10 for. While I didn't love all the items in my bag, I loved more than $10 worth, so I'm thinking this subscription bag is a keeper for me. 


  1. I got the same bag. I wasn't too impressed with the eyelashes or the glitter either, but even if you just count the other three items, I think it was well worth the $10!

  2. I'm not into fake eyelashes either but I do love the mosaic powder!

  3. I too get ipsy. The fake eyelashes and the cream did not work for me either!

  4. The glitter was not good for me at all...

  5. i was seriously confused by the glitter.. what on earth were they thinking?
