This month's Ipsy Glam Bag came early for me. Usually I get mine around the 20th, but mine came on the 14th this month. The theme for this month is "Jetsetter". As usual, I fail to see how the products actually fit the theme, but whatevs. I'm meh about the bag; nothing special or super cute, but I'm sure either Fynn or I will find a use for it.
Bare Republic Naturals SPF 30 Mineral Face Sunscreen Lotion (~$5)
I had forgotten that summer Ipsy bags= awesome sunscreens to try out. I love the small bottles, they're perfect to throw in a beach bag or diaper bag. Since I'm a Casper in terms of complexion, daily sunscreen is a must for me, so I will definitely make good use out of this.
Nuxe Reve de Miel Facial Cleansing and Make Up Removing Gel (~$1.50)
I'm shocked by how cheap this is, but a 200 ml bottle is $19, so it's actually an affordable item. I love Ipsy and all, but a lot of the items are more expensive then I would ever spend on beauty products. It smells kind of funky, but the reviews on this look awesome, so I can't wait to try it out... sometime when I actually wear some make up... so probably not for another 2 weeks when I go back to work :)
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil + Bonus Revolution High-Color Lipgloss in Failbait and Bittersweet. (~$5 for the pencil)
I was perplexed by this at first; the lip pencil is white and goes on clear... what's the point? But I read the info sheet which explained that it helps color stay on longer and gets rid of the lines you sometimes get when lipstick settles on your lips. The second part of this was two samples of their Revolution Lipgloss. Not a fan of the lipgloss. It's thick and sticky and oh.emm.gee. does anyone actually wear color like this in public? Gross.

At first I laughed... and then I tried it. See that picture above? I had use this on my eyebrows too. It's not something that I'd think of, but usually I have nonexistent blonde brows so this added a little definition and I actually liked it... It will be interesting to see how it looks when I have more than just nasty purple lipgloss on with it.
Luxie Tapered Blending Brush ($12)
I love make up brushes, even though I'm sure I don't use them all the way their intended. This one is soft and smooth, and it's pink which means I automatically love it.
Although I didn't get the theme, or love the bag, I did love the $32 worth of items I got for $10 and I love all the items except the lip pencil/gloss, I could have gone without those.
