fivezero's Ipsy Glam Bag "Volume Up" (June 2017)

Ipsy — June 2017 Glam Bag “Volume Up”

I usually don’t get my Ipsy Glam Bag (referral link) here in Canada until the middle of each month, at the earliest—and yet, yesterday, the twelfth, I got my shiny hot pink June bag!

This month was the first time I tried emailing Ipsy to request an item to be included in my bag—apart from the one time they emailed me to let me try out a new system (I chose a mini of Ciaté Liquid Velvet Matte Lipstick in Pin Up).

From the initial list of spoilers released by Ipsy, I thought a black Make Up For Ever eyeliner was the best option I had (it wasn’t a great list! I’m not a huge black liner person) so I went ahead and asked if I could get that in my June bag. Customer service was happy to oblige.

Of course, a while later I saw more spoilers which included some great options I’d have picked instead (see my list below of other June items that Ipsy sent out). Boo! I actually think it makes more sense for me to just let Ipsy pick for me from now on, unless I see an item in the spoilers that I truly want. They’ve actually been doing a pretty great job for me—if only I could convince them that it’s OK to send me more than one nail polish per month!
