July 2013 Ipsy Review: Beach Beauty

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 Beach Beauty.

What I got:
Benetint from Benefit

Colour: Rose

Cost: $10.00

Thoughts: I thought it was appropriate to start with the item I was most exited about. First off, Benefit is a really good brand. Second, for a lot of women, the benetint is a must have item. I don't need to make my cheeks any more pink than they already are, but I absolutely love the colour it gives my lips.

Mineral Face SPF 20 Rose Essence Tinted Moisturizer


Thoughts: I was so happy to get the tinted moisturizer. The colour is great on my skin and it feels nice as well. The fact that it has SPF in it is even better. I just wish it was a bigger sample.

Big Sexy Hair
Weather Proof Humidity

Cost: $9.00

Thoughts: This coud not have come at a better time! I absolutely need this product in my life right now. I spray it in my hair after flat-ironing it and it makes my hair stay straight, all day! Despite the hot weather!

bh cosmetics
California Collection Eyeshadow Sample

Cost: $2.00

Thoughts: The full sized version of this is only $10, which is a really good deal. I like that we got three different shades, all of which I'll use.

Pouty Pop Crayon

Colour: Rose Romance

Cost: $4.15

Thoughts: I'll be honest; I thought this was lip liner at first. It isn't. It goes on the whole lip. I think it's meant for girls with bigger lips than me. Didn't suit me all that well.

The whole Glam Bag, with the bag!
Not only is the bag super cute, but I was really impressed with its contents. Even though the crayon didn't suit me all that much, I still plan to use everything in this months bag. I also noticed that the contents of this bag were not valued as high as other months, but it doesn't change my opinion of the qualities of it.

Total cost of bag: $30.15
How much I paid: $14.95
Savings: $15.20

  1. Wow, this looks like a great bag! The big sexy hair is a great brand, that's my favorite hairspray. So awesome they gave you a tinted moisturizer, they are a must in the summer!

  2. It actually looks like you've gotten better things in this months bag than in past months. But I'm also obsessed with benefit so I suppose I'm not an impartial judge. xx

  3. I saw my bag and was really excited about this one. Then I saw yours.... I want benetint!! :( but im glad you got a good one!

  4. Gah I missed a good one! I need to get this back ASAP!

  5. I'd love to get a bag of goodies like this each month!! How fun! I'm a huge fan of Big Sexy Hair products, I use their volumizing powder but totally need that spray!

  6. great review! what an awesome bag.. maybe you can add the deals that ipsy gives us too! :D
