June Ipsy Glam Bag & First Impressions

After a three day delay (I tweeted out to Ipsy and they were really accommodating), my June glam bag finally arrived yesterday. I have to say, I am obsessed with everything I received this month. Granted, I always get a sneak peek by sharing on social media before they even send it. The theme for the month is “Rebel Rebel” so the bag is super cute (all graffiti) and, like I said, I’m loving the items. Here’s an image with descriptions below.

If you’re wanting to experiment with new makeup or try new brands, I highly recommend subscribing to the Ipsy Glam Bag. It’s only $10 per month and you get these full size samples every time. Fill out your profile and pick your favorite brands and you’re good to go.

May Ipsy Glam Bag

Have you heard of the deluxe makeup sample subscription service called Ipsy? I hadn’t until a few months ago when a former coworker from my banking days told me about it. To get started, you fill out a survey on about your preferences, skin, eye and hair color, and what brands you frequently buy and where you buy them from. Then, you pay $11 per month and get five deluxe samples. Each month has a theme, with the bag to match (you get to keep the bags, by the way).

I loved what came in my April glam bag, so when I was able to get a sneak peek of my May glam bag, I did. Here’s what I got:

  1. Slmissglam contour brush. I don’t normally contour, but this brush is great for adding a thin line of blush to your cheeks.
  2. Smashbox x-rated mascara. I am finishing up my They’re Real mascara by Benefit right now, so when that’s done I’m excited to try this Smashbox mascara. I’ve heard great things about it.
  3. Hanalei lip treatment. I am always looking for a product to keep my lips hydrated. Excited to try this Hawaiian product.
  4. Eva NYC hungry hair oil treatment. I don’t normally like to put oil-based product in my hair as my hair can get pretty oily, but I am looking to grow out my hair even longer, so I’ll give this a try.
  5. Hikari Cosmetics shimmer bronzer. Just like contouring, I don’t really bronze, but maybe I should start. I am digging the shimmer in this palette.

I have been thoroughly pleased with my first two glam bags and can’t wait for my June bag. If you’re interested in trying out ipsy, click here.
