Ipsy – June

Whoever curated the June bag for Ipsy
was in a frisky and fun mood.

June’s Theme:  On The Wild Side

IMG_4098

Definitely all goes together!

My photo does not capture the true neon color on this bag.
In a weird way it works and is kind of cute – and I don’t do animal prints!

J. Cat Beauty Sparkling Cream Palette
Retail $4.49 – Full Size Sample

Um, where to begin…

I told my husband I got eyeshadow that made me “think of
the hookers along Aurora Ave in Seattle” or “a sports boat
with a metal flake paint job.”  When he saw it he could not
believe how accurate that description really is – no exaggerating!

Maybe in small doses – such as used as an eyeliner – or a highlight
along your brow…or for Halloween!
Otherwise, it seems like cheap kiddy make up.

J. Cat Beauty Eyelashes + Eyelash Glue
Retail $3.99 – Full Size Sample

Now false eyelashes I can get into!
These have a great length with a natural look
that would be easy to trim for your needs.

Not high-end – but good for four bucks.

Starlooks Lip Pencil in Bare
Retail $12 – Full Size Sample

Starlooks created three colors exclusively for Ipsy.
This is one of them.

I don’t use lip liner
– don’t need to –
so this will be going to someone who can use it.

NYX Mosaic Powder Blush in Peachy
Retail $7 – Full Size Sample

Peach is not my color.  Great deal if this was a color I could use.
My neighbor is going to love this 🙂

Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter
Retail $18 – Full Size Sample

Here is my favorite thing in the bag!!!
At first I was WTF is this crayon thingy???
However, this works better than my Benefit Eye Bright!!
Because it is not as pink it works better at concealing dark circles.

Bonus, it has Jojoba in it – so it is very moisturizing – not drying.
Keep in mind – this is hard to correct if you use too much
so a light touch goes a long way!!

Total Value for my June Ipsy bag – $45.48

Even with a couple of misfires this month rocks for value!!

Ipsy – May

Wow Ipsy is shaking things up this month!!
They are introducing rewards for referrals
PLUS
they are making the bags more personal based on your preferences.

Here is what I received in my bag this month.

May’s Theme: Spring Fling

IMG_4009

So far so good!

Collage

Um, if you can’t tell by my blog colors – then let me clue you in…
I’m really digging the theme and colors!

IMG_4012

Pacifica Coconut Crushed Pearl Luminizing Body Butter
Retail $24 for 8 oz or $7.00 for 2 oz (Sample Size)

This has a strong coconut smell that reminds me of suntan lotion.
I love the sparkle effect – it’s not over the top – but noticeable.

IMG_4013

Yaby Concealer in ‘Buff’
Retail $4.85 for 3.5 g – Full Size Sample

Yep, this really is a full size sample.

Now that MAC is testing on animals – I have to find some new
concealer and foundation.

I kinda dig the idea of smaller sizes so the make up doesn’t get so germy.
The Buff color is too pale for my complexion 😦
I found the formula too creamy and pools – so it accentuates even the smallest crease.
Not ideal!

IMG_4014

Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss in ‘Fig’
Retail $15.00 for .28 oz – Sample Value $7.50 for .14 oz

I love this gloss!!
Great color for the summer – kind of a rosy-bronzy color.  Great aroma!
Not sticky and VERY conditioning with no taste.
My hubby was impressed!

IMG_4016

Zoya Professional Lacquer in ‘Blu’
Retail $8.00 – Full Size Sample

I was soooo excited to get a Zoya polish!!  Then I opened it…

Not really digging this color.  It’s more chalk grey with a hint of blue.
Looks like an ink pen dribbled into some White Out.

Update:  For S&G’s I tried this out.  Definitely got people to notice my toes!
My feet are VERY tan now – and it looks more baby blue.
But even my girlfriend said she first thought of White Out 🙂

IMG_4017

NuMe Finishing Serum
Retail $29 for 2 oz/59 ml – Sample Value $4.92 for .33 oz/10 ml

I have not tried this yet.
I am in the middle of an Aveda product test so this will have to wait
a couple more weeks.

Total Value for my May Ipsy bag – $32.27
