June 2013 Ipsy Review: On the Wild Side

What do you get when you sign up with Ipsy?

For $10 a month (plus shipping for some; $4.95 for me), subscribers receive a Glam Bag with samples and full-sized beauty products which are unique to them and the profile they filled out when they signed up! You don't know what you're getting ahead of time. The only thing you know is that it follows a theme. This month's theme was On the Wild Side.

What I got:
NYX Cream Blush

Colour: Rouge

Cost: $6.00

Thoughts: I'm not a fan of blush (my face is red enough already); I also got blush in my April Ipsy bag, so I was very disappointed to get it again. Although, NYX is a really good brand.

J. Cat Beauty
Sparkling Cream Palette

Cost: $4.49

Thoughts: I've always liked glitter! I'm pretty happy with the colours too, so I'll definitely being using this at some point.

Cailyn Cosmestics
Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner with Brush Built-In

Colour: Black

Cost: $21.00

Thoughts: This is my favourite product in this months Ipsy bag. I haven't tried it yet, and I'll probably make a mess the first time I do, but I'm determined to make this work for me.

Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil

Cost: $18.00

Thoughts: Since I'm completely clueless with makeup, at first I wasn't sure what this was (at least I'm honest!). I'm a big fan of my eyebrows, and I like trying new things, so this works well for me. Very smooth application as well!

Starlooks Lip Pencil

Colour: Bare

Cost: $12.00

Thoughts: When I wear lipstick, I wear pink lipstick. This colour does not go with my lipstick at all. I probably wont use this at all.

The whole Glam Bag, with the bag!

The product names in this bag were really good, but unfortunately, most of the products weren't right for me. Some people received dry shampoo and I wish I had gotten that instead. It wont deter me continuing my subscription though. Plus, I love the bag!

Total cost of bag: $61.49
How much I paid: $14.95
Savings: $46.54
