Ipsy Glam Bag "Swim Into Beauty" June 2015

Ipsy — June 2015 Glam Bag “Swim Into Beauty”

My Ipsy (referral link) Glam Bag arrived yesterday, and I’m reasonably pleased with it this month! It took a few moments of considering all of the items (let’s be honest, I’m disappointed whenever there’s no nail polish or lipstick in there!), but I think I will be happy to use every product I got this month!

The item I least like is actually the bag, which is a rarity! This month’s cosmetic bag is made out of a cheap sort of foam-fabric that looks like it will pick up dust and snags really easily.

What I Received

  • IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil in Universal Taupe
  • J. Cat Beauty Liptitude Hydrating Lip Stain in Hikilicious (LLS117)
  • Lavanila The Healthy Body Butter in Pure Vanilla
  • Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer (mini)
  • trèStiQue Mini Shadow Crayon in Kona Coffee
  • Ipsy makeup bag

Here are some photos and swatches:

IT Cosmetics Brow Power Eyebrow Pencil in Universal TaupeI’m pleased to have received this, since I’ve been wanting to try IT Cosmetics for a while now. This looks a lot like the Korean Lioele Eyebrow Pencil I recently bought. The IT Cosmetics Pencil is even made in Korea. I’ll have to do a comparison!

J. Cat Liptitude Hydrating Lip Stain in HikiliciousThis applies darker than it looks in the tube. They’ve sent me a J. Cat lip product once before; it was OK but I’m not thrilled with receiving yet another one, even though it is a slightly different product.

Tre'Stique Mini Shadow Crayon in Kona CoffeeAt first, I thought the cap was missing, but then I realized that is part of the cap. It just looks like an actual chubby pencil tip.

I look forward to reviewing a couple of these items this month!

  1. They look lovely! Can’t wait for the review!! When you don’t like products, what do you do with them? Also would you recommend the ipsy glam bag every month or other ones like glossy box etc??x x

    • I usually give them away! Or sometimes I forget about them and they end up hiding in random places. LOL.

      So far I have only tried Ipsy and Birchbox. Being in Canada, I don’t think Glossybox is available (though I have checked it out and it looks great!). I didn’t like Birchbox and canceled after just 2 boxes. Too much lotion and shampoo!

      I generally like Ipsy so far. The customizing does help after a while, so you do have to keep up with rating the items you receive on their website.

  2. Why would they make the cap look like the actual product. Trying to be all cute? (I guess it’s similar to the MJ kiss pop lipsticks)
    I only have one IT Cosmetics item and I received in a beauty kit from ebeauty.ca (I miss that site! TSC is not the same). It’s the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Airbrushed Bronzer and I was SO impressed with it. I’ve been curious about the CC cream that people rave about.
    Not a bad bag at all. Only 1 body stuff and NO hair stuff.

    • Haha, the hilarious thing is that the actual tip does NOT look like the cap’s fake tip! So weird.

      Yeah, I’m not a fan of TSC shopping. I find shipping is quite high over there. :/ Nice to hear you really liked that bronzer!
