Ipsy Glam Bag June 2014

Happy post-4th of July! Hope everyone had a fabulous time celebrating.

I got my first Ipsy Glam Bag last month. Since I was new, of course I was probably the last person ever to get it. I was super excited for the shiny pink envelope to show up in my mailbox though!

Like Birchbox, Ipsy is $10 a month and ships mostly makeup as compared to Birchbox, which seems to ship a bit more variety of skincare, body, makeup and lifestyle products. Or maybe its just my bag this month. I guess I’ll find out!

Ipsy Glam Bag June 2014 Review

Ipsy Glam Bag June 2014 Review / hellorigby!

Ipsy Carol's Daugher Sacred Tiare Styling Cream /  Ipsy Glam Bag June 2014 / hellorigby! Carol’s Daughter Sacred Tiare Styling Creme – This smells good! It seems to work well too for taming flyaways and keeping my hair looking smooth. While it is mostly preservative free (no Parabens, no Phlalates, no Petroleum, no Mineral Oil, and no Artificial Colors) I noticed it had BHT in the ingredients list. (More on BHT from the EWG, if you’re interested.) Basically, it’s an ingredient to I try to avoid, so I won’t be repurchasing. (Value $2)

Nicka K Shimmer Eyeliner in Blue / Ipsy Glam Bag June 2014 / hellorigby! Nicka K Shimmer Eyeliner in Blue – So not only do I not wear liquid eyeliner, but blue is so not my thing. This gives me flashbacks to 8th grade when I went a little overboard with the blue eyeshadow because, hello, my eyes are blue so obviously that is the best color to wear! Ha. I will be trading this to someone who will enjoy it more than I. (Value $5)

NYX Butter LIp Gloss in Eclair / Ipsy Glam Bag June 2014 / hellorigby! NYX Butter Lipgloss in Eclair – I really love this! The scent is nice and sweet, and the ingredients list doesn’t scare me half to death like their Butter Lipstick does. I will definitely be seeking out other colors of this! (Value $4.99)

Ofra Eyebrow Pencil / Ipsy Glam Bag June 2014 / hellorigby! OFRA Eyebrow Pencil (Universal Shade) – Unfortunately this is too dark for me. It just didn’t look natural, so I will be passing this along to someone who’s brows it would better suite. I also noticed the ingredients list included Parabens which is a big fail in my book, considering this is the first pencil I’ve ever seen that listed on. Womp womp. (Value $13)

Realtree Perfume / Ipsy Glam Bag June 2014 / hellorigby! Realtree for Her Perfume – This smells very, very sweet. If you like Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy, I’d say its similar but even sweeter. The vial came broken and leaking, so I contacted Customer Service to see if I could get a replacement. They responded to me in about a day and a half, and mailed me a replacement… which ended up being this Demeter Roll On Perfume Oil in Salt Air. Kind of fun getting a bonus sample! (Value ~$1 + Demeter Value $2.50)

…And that’s a wrap on my June Ipsy Glam Bag! For $10, I received about $28 worth of product, plus the super cute Rebecca Minkoff make up bag. Seems like a great deal to me!

    I’m not an Ipsy subscriber. It seems the problem here is you could very well get more for your money, but if there is no use for it for you, then that can be disappointing.

      So true! I really liked the lipgloss, makeup bag, and the two perfume samples were great. I’m glad I’m in a swap group that swaps makeup otherwise it would probably be a bigger bummer!

      I know right? So bizarre! I almost always have to get the lightest shade because I don’t like my eyebrows to look filled/penciled in!

      I’m excited for my next bag! I changed up my quiz a bit to hopefully avoid the crazy colored eyeliner in the future, but I definitely like the bag overall!

    I’ve been so curious about trying either Ipsy or Birchbox but I have never committed mostly because I tend to use the same stuff over and over and over again and I don’t do well with change haha! The bag is so cute though and NYX butter glosses are my favorite!!

      birchbox is still my favorite of the two, but that’s because this is my first ipsy bag and half of the products didn’t really work for me. i’m excited to see what next month brings!

    Aaah that’s annoying when half the products in a beauty box/bag aren’t your thing! It looks okay, we don’t get Ipsy in the UK (I don’t think anyway) but I do quite like birchbox so I’m happy with them. My favourite at the min is actually wantable, and i love their accessories box too!

      I love Birchbox too, they’re just a bit different. I think Ipsy focuses on budget friendly and more on the make up side, whereas Birchbox is mid to higher end and skin/body/makeup.

      I joined a swap group through MySubscriptionAddiction, so even when I get things that I don’t care for, I can swap them for other items! Win-win :)
