June 2015 Ipsy Unboxing and Review

Ipsy is a monthly subscription service available residents of the United States and Canada and it costs $10/month – shipping included. North Carolina, New York, and California charges tax while the remaining states do not.


Ipsy sends out 4-5 deluxe or full sized samples in a beauty bag each month! These products can range from beauty, hair, and skincare products and tools.


What I love about Ipsy is that it seems to be focused more on makeup – at least the bags I have gotten so far tend to be that way!

This month’s theme is “Swim Into Beauty” and the bag this month is just so amazing! I love the material and the pop of color the zipper has! This is definitely my new favorite Ipsy bag!
Ipsy sent their subscribers 5 fun beauty products this month!



I have super frizzy hair so I’m excited to try the Keratherapy out! I have had Keratin treatments done in the past and they did help so I’m curious to see how this at home treatment works. You put it all over your towel dried hair and blow dry it! 
I’ve tried the Dr. Brandt and Smashbox Primer before and I’m not a fan of either of them. I know so many people who love and swear by both of these but they just don’t work for my skin type (dry-combo). I find that the Dr. Brandt does nothing for my pores (I wasn’t too surprised since this is for oily-combo skin) and the Smashbox Primer makes the dry parts of my skin flake more than usual. 
I’ll be adding both the Dr. Brandt and Smashbox Primer to my giveaway prize though! 

I am sold with these two items! I haven’t had much luck with previous J Cat products I tried but I am in love with this lip stain so far! It’s super pigmented and doesn’t dry out my lips! 
The shadow crayon is so creamy and such a pretty gold color, I know I’ll be using it often! I’m really tempted to purchase their mini trio for $32, I’d love to have some of their other colors! However, I did have have a mini freak out with the packaging since I thought the product was uncapped when I got it! Did any of you get fooled with it?
The lip stain is a bit bold and bright for my liking but I’m trying to go out of my comfort zone so I will definitely use it! The Venetian Gold is so pretty, I did not expect to love it as much as I did! 
The retail value of this month’s bag is $40.54 which is 10 times more than what I paid! Overall, I am pretty happy with this month’s IpsyI wasn’t thrilled when I saw my online preview but it was definitely one of those bags where seeing it all in person made me love it more!
