June 2015 - Ipsy Glambag! [Review]

Should we just dive right in?

The bag itself is black and says ipsy all over one side. It feels like it may be waterproof, but other bloggers have stated it's not. The theme for the month was "Swim into Beauty" and this is what was in my bag...

Too Faced - Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Candy
There were two items that ipsy was sending everyone. Either this Melted lipstick, or a Smashbox primer. I made sure when I signed back up to only have lip products selected, and luckily enough I got the melted. I received primer in a past bag and rated it low as well. I'm not a fan of primers. Anyway, I love this product. The lipstick is long lasting, and its easy to apply. The applicator has a sponge tip on the end which makes it easy to put on, and not messy at all. The colour is a little bit brighter than what I'm used to, but it's a fun colour.

Aurora Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in the shade 4 Alarm Fire
This is more pink than red. I actually really like the shade. I tested it on one of my toes and it has lasted weeks. I haven't had a chance to wear it on my fingernails, but I like the colour and it seems to have good staying power.

OGX - Healing and Vitamin E Penetrating Oil
So this is for your hair. I didn't think much of it until someone had to point out the penetrating oil part on my instagram. Anyway. I haven't tried this yet as I'm almost always wearing my hair up and haven't used heat on my hair since... well, I don't even remember lol. I'm sure this works okay. Not the biggest fan of OGX but I will try it eventually.

TreStique Mini Shadow Crayon in Pink Pearl
Okay, I know I'm not the only one that thought the cap was missing. Almost everyone I have talked to did the same thing. Searched the bag for the top. But, it's all just for show. The crayon is under that clever cap. This shade is nice, it's like a champagne. But another champagne. Ipsy is famous for this. Staying power is good, but I wouldn't repurchase. I have enough eyeshadow in this shade.

SwissCo Eyelash Curler
Is this not the curler that they gave out before Christmas and people had huge issues with? Remind me if it is, please!
I tried this and it's not the greatest. It has a weird curvature and doesn't match my natural eye shape. It doesn't curl all my lashes either. But it's lightweight, so theres that.

While the bag was okay, I have decided that I will get July's bag, and I will be cancelling again. I love getting the pink mailer every month, but nothing has wow'd me, and judging by July sneak peek, theres nothing WOW there either. I also went through all of makeup again this week, and I have SO much. I really need to cut back. I'll miss it, but we have to part ways again!
