Ipsy | June 2014 “Pretty in Paradise” Glam Bag

So odd to be posting about June when the gears have already shifted into what’s coming for Fall, but luckily most of the items included in June’s Ipsy Bag can be carried over into the coming seasons. I don’t remember much about June only that I was starting something new career-wise and my brain was somewhat scattered. I DID remember being really excited that Michelle Phan decided to included the Korean brand Laneige in this months’ bag which is something you will never see a North American beauty sub do.

June Ipsy Glam Bag

Be a Bombshell |Lash Out Mascara

Be a Bombshell Lash Out Mascara

A rich pigmented mascara with a lengthening formula that offers a multidimensional look.

Thoughts: No more mascara…OMG…please make it stop! The wand on this looked pretty standard and I’m sure it would have worked just fine, but there are other mascaras in my life that I would prefer to use. Sorry!

Full size: 3g/$15.00

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Marc Anthony|Dream Waves Beach Spray

Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray

Create natural, effortless, beach hair worn loose, soft and wavy. It adds body and texture to straight, fine strands or pumps up the curl in already wavy hair. Add extra definition to your wavy layers. Hydrolyzed Silk and Provitamin B5 protect your tresses while adding moisture and shine. Powerful UV Protectors absorb ultraviolet light to save your mane from harmful sun exposure, dehydration and color-fade. You’re left with manageable, touchable waves. Even the straightest hair can achieve tousled beach hair any time of year.

Thoughts: I feel like beachy/texturizing spray is given out every year and honestly, does anyone EVER get through even one bottle? I have so many bottles of this type of product that I will have to give it away.

Full size: 125mL/$8.79

I received: 45mL/$3.16

NYX|Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel

NYX Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel

Buttery soft and silky smooth, our scrumptious new Butter Lip Gloss tastes as sweet as a sugar cookie—and makes your lips look downright luscious. Swipe it on alone or over your favourite lipstick for creamy sheer to medium coverage that melts onto your lips and is never sticky.

Thoughts: I LOVE Butter Glosses and incredibly enough, I do not own this colour even though I have 6 as is. I love the colours, texture, scent and how creamy and comfortable they are on the lips.

Full size: 8mL/$5.00

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Jesse’s Girl|Waterproof Liquid Liner in Black

Jesse’s Girl Waterproof Liquid Liner in Black

This true black liquid liner creates a bold, precise, ultra-fine line that's both waterproof and smudge-proof. The unique, calligraphy-style brush allows you to create lines as thin as one millimeter!

Thoughts: This is my favourite type of liquid liner. A sharp tip and a formula that promises total longevity. I love trying things from Jesse’s Girl because it’s hard to find and we don’t have it here in Canada ( I don’t think?).

Full size: 5mL/$6.99

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Laneige|BB Cushion Foundation

Laneige BB Cushion Foundation

Thoughts: I am so glad that this was included because not many people had heard about cushion BB foundations at the time. I also love that there are three different shades included so you can even mix and match if one shade doesn’t quite work for you. This is a hot product and I am happy to see it in this month’s Ipsy!

Full size: 0.50oz/$34.00

I received: 0.21oz/$14.28 (I’m guessing this amount is for all three shades)

Total value of June Ipsy Bag: $44.43

Overall, I was pretty happy with the contents and value of this month’s Ipsy bag. Yes, the mascara and beachy spray weren’t items on my hot list, but they would have been if I didn’t already own so many!
