Ipsy‘s June 2014 bag is here! This month they teamed up with Rebecca Minkoff- that means a designer bag for all you Ipsters! The theme is Pretty In Paradise so there’s lots of goodies for pampering and summer looks. My bag was shipped out from NC on 6/10/14 and I got my bag in NJ on 6/14/14.
If you missed the sneak peeks you can see all the products in my Ipsy June 2014 Sneak Peeks post.
Let’s see what I got:
Be A Bombshell Lash Out Mascara. Retail: $15.00.
This was a hot item but I won’t get to try it because this mascara has parabens. It’s suppose to lengthen and feather out your lashes. Too bad its not waterproof since summer is hot (and wet if you go to the beach).
DERMAdoctor DD Cream Dermatologically Defining BB Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Retail: $14.82 for .3 oz.
This multi-benefit DD cream has it all- self-adjusting coverage, anti-aging, hdyrates, defends, events skin tone, minimizes pores, blemish soothing, reduces redenss, firms, brightens, primes, enhances vibrancy, refines, mattifies and nourishes. Plus, no parabens! I can’t wait to try it.
Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray. Retail: $3.18 for 1.52 oz.
I really like the smell of this hair spray- coconut. I tried this on my dry hair when it had a little wave from tying up my hair. It looked great after scrunching my hair but it didn’t hold for long. My hair is thick so it didn’t hold. I’ll try doing this on wet hair and seeing if that works better.
Nicka K New York Shimmer Eyeliner in Green. Retail: $4.99.
I was really impressed with the color payoff and stay power. It’s really glittery but the green color really pops. It really is waterproof and smudgeproof- all you need is waterproof makeup remover and it comes right off. Since I have oily skin- its hard finding any eyeliners to stay (even with primer).
NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair. Retail: $5.00.
For some reason I was picturing this gloss to be in a chapstick form but it’s actually a lipgloss applicator. I got the lightest color, Eclair which is light pink with a lot of shimmer. I like the gloss, its not too sticky and it has sheer coverage. This would look nice over a lipstick.
Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Bare Rose. Retail: $20.00.
(Bonus item!) This lipgloss is sheer and slightly shimmery. I’m not sure whether it has parabens or not because on the Ipsy and Birchbox’s site say they say it does but the Jouer’s site said they don’t. I emailed them so I should be getting a response soon.
Here’s some swatches of the Jouer Lip Gloss on top, the NYX butter gloss in the middle and on the bottom is the Nicka K Shimmer Eyeliner. I put the Nyx lip gloss on pretty thick but the Jouer lipgloss and Nicka K eyeliner is just a swipe. Since these lip glosses are sheer- I tend to wear them over lipstick since my lips need more coverage.
Baksshi Sheet Masks in Aloe Vera, Vitamin C, Honey , and Marine Algae. Retail: $27.96 total or $6.99 each.
The Baksshi Masks are paraban free, cruelty free, all natural with no artificial preservative and are a botanically rich formula. Each mask is different so it’s up to you if you want to moisturize, hydrate, brighten, or add collagen to your face.
I really liked my Ipsy bag this month, it was worth $90.95 and I’m going to use all but one product! These bonus products are so awesome, I can’t wait to see what July’s bag will have!
