Ipsy | July Edition “Beach Beauty”

I very much enjoyed the July edition of Ipsy as it was quite a bit better than June’s in my opinion. The products were much more to my liking and came in a fun pink cosmetics case that definitely appealed to the teenage girl in me! 

sexyhair | Soy Renewal Beach SprayDSC_0120

Creates beachy undone texture that looks and feels like you’ve spent a day at the beach. Contains argan oil which helps nourish, protect and heal hair damage.

Thoughts: I have received an almost overwhelming number of textured/beach sprays from sample services this summer season so  I can’t say I was thrilled to see another bottle of it, but with argan oil, I’m curious to see if this as moisturizing as it claims to be as other beach sprays I have used have felt somewhat drying on my hair.

Full size: 170mL/$18.50

I received: 50mL/$5.44

Coola | Mineral Face SPF 20 Rose Essence Tinted MoisturizerDSC_0121

Keep the sun and environment at bay with this SPF 20 broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen. This tinted, light rose scented, titanium dioxide based formula (for those who are Zinc sensitive) is made with 98% natural ingredients. Ingredients like organic acai oil, vitamins B1/2/3, vitamins C, and vitamin E delivers a powerful defense against aging. Also contains skin calming and elasticity promoting ingredients such as linseed oil, organic sunflower seed extract, organic cucumber extract and phyto-protector plankton extract.
This sunscreen is hypoallergenic, paraben-free, ultra sheer, anti-aging, and water resistant for 40 minutes.

Thoughts: I was really excited to see this product because I love Coola, but rarely come across this line very easily without going online. I can’t wait to use this the next time I have a day off in the sun!

Full size: 50mL/$36.00

I received: 7mL/$5.04

Nailtini | Mai TaiDSC_0122

Pure all-premium nail color in vibrant sunrise coral

Thoughts: What a pretty colour! It’s so bright and gorgeous, I love it!

Full size: 15mL/$13.00

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Pop Beauty | Pouty Pop Crayon in Fuchsia FlirtDSC_0123

POP's Pouty Pop Crayon nourishes, treats, and adds that perfectly-plumped pop to lips. These extra-nourishing balms gently bounce onto lips creating a plumped & pillowy pout leaving them with luscious, long-lasting colour with a super-smooth texture. Available in six shades.

Thoughts: Another pretty colour and awesome product! I love Pop Beauty products and I can’t wait to use this!

Full size: $24.85 (Amazon.com price, so not too sure how accurate it is)

I received: *FULL SIZE*

BH Cosmetics | California CollectionDSC_0124

This BH Cosmetics makeup palette includes a shade from each of the California Collection palettes: Hollywood, San Francisco, and Malibu.

Thoughts: The colour payoff is not bad and the colours are quite wearable. This is a cute little sampler that gives us a taste of each of the three palettes from the California Collection. I have a few BH Cosmetics palettes and I have been pleased with the quality

Full size: $8.95/palette

I received: Hard to say since these shadows are minis and there is no weight on the packaging.


This bracelet was my bonus for Ipsy referrals. It’s adjustable which is nice for someone with a small wrist like myself.


Total Value of July Ipsy Bag: ~$48.33

I’m not too certain of the value since there were a few things that I was not able to price, but overall I was quite pleased with what I received especially the nail polish, sunscreen and the lip crayon. I just received my August Ipsy a few days ago so I will have that for you soon!
