July 2013 ipsy Glam Bag Review

Ohhh I can't even begin to count the ways I love ipsy and how much good it does my soul to spend a mere $10 a month on this subscription.

Look at this amazing bag! Full disclosure, I got the nail polish because I referred two friends. Whenever you refer two friends you get an additional gift. this time I got Pretty In Plum from the Selena Gomez Nicole by OPI. It's gorgeous and I'm so excited about getting it! Thanks to anyone who used my link to sign up, you made my day.

Now let's talk about the July ipsy glam bag.

COOLA Mineral Face SPF 20 Unscented Moisturizer .23 fl. oz.
I am a beach bum so sunscreen is super important to me. I've found it's tough to find non-tinted, unscented facial sunscreen. I'm excited to try this out. 
POP Beauty Pouty POP Crayon Fucia Flirt 0.1 oz
This reminds me of the neutrogena lip balm I tried before.  I'm kind of bummed out that you can't buy replacements individually. However this product is great. I love the color and this is going to get used up. 

Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray 1.7 fl. oz.
These beach texture sprays are a huge trend as it seems. I've gotten quite a few samples of them. This one, I love. The scent is great like hyacinth or maybe lilac. Either way it has a perfect floral scent, doesn't over grease my hair and works like a charm. I love it. 

benefit benetint Rose tinted lip and cheek stain 0.08 fl. oz.
I swear by lip stains and tints. They are perfect for using as a base coat for really great lipsticks.
Especially ones where eating and drinking are involved because as your lipstick fades, you'll still have that nice base tint to get you through reapplying. Overall I'm pretty happy with this sample, but I don't think I'll switch from my TonyMoly because 1. the tint colors are fantastic 2. the tops are shaped like cats. 

bhcosmetics California Collection eyeshadow sample (3 colors)
The colors look beautiful I got three. Hollywood a plum purple with a hint of sparkle, San Francisco a bronze and brown shadow with gold sparkle and Malibu flashy gold shadow with flecks of gold glitter. I love both San Francisco and Malibu but I have found better plums than Hollywood. The Hollywood doesn't have the kind of pigmentation that I typically like. 

There we have it! My July 2013 ipsy Glam Bag. I love it. If you're interested in joining ipsy feel free to use my referral link. For only $10 a month you get some really great beauty products to try out.
