{late post} Ipsy Glam Bag June & July 2013


Warning: This is a late post due to our CA vacation and this was sent to our Iowa address. :)

Although it's a late review, I was still surprised at how many brand new things I could get out of the June & July 2013 Ipsy Glam Bag! But first, we will start with June 2013 Ipsy Glam Bag. 

The theme was "On the Wild Side". Channeling this theme is first off the animal printed bag. One thing I noticed is that the zipper is not in its usual form (on top) but this time, it was an inch from top, giving it an interesting flair. I personally like it when they change their bag designs. 


Whether you are trying to create the eyes of a runway model or the classic look of a 60's Hollywood star, the Cailyn Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner can make any style possible! The easy to use built-in brush makes it perfect for taking on-the-go. Create a chic yet casual look right before work, and then update it for a night out with the girls. The Cailyn Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner brushes on smooth and stays moist just long enough for wearers to perfect their look. Once dry, the gel is smudge-proof and waterproof for 24 hours. The highly concentrated pigment of the liner creates lusciously smooth lines and is safe for sensitive eyes.

Choose from 13 rich, deep, luminous colors. 

I find it creamy and easy to apply! You don't need to be a pro to use this. I like it especially because it has a built-in brush from the handle. No need looking for an apparatus that might be hidden under our makeup stashes. I got a dark violet one which also works. You can't just wear black forever, right? :)

Lip Pencil
Starlooks' long-lasting, full-coverage Lip Pencil enhances the shape of your lips and gives them perfect definition. This creamy, moisturizing formula glides on softly to smooth lips and ensure lipstick stays in place, while extending its wear. Can also be used as an all-over, highly-pigmented lip color. Comes in several shades and various finishes to pair with any Starlooks Lipstick, Lip Gloss, or Tendergloss! 

Starlooks Makeup Line is entirely Lead Free, and Cruelty Free. 

This lip pencil is very creamy! I got the color Tipsy and its peach color. The length of the lip pencil gives you the clue that this will be a very good buddy for a long time. You can use it to trace the lips or just apply it all over the lips. I do the latter. :)

J.Cat Beauty
Sparkling Cream Palette
Everyone loves a little sparkle! Add a healthy dosage of sparkle in your life with the cream palette that comes in a variety of complementing colors. The creamy texture allows the sparkle to be applied easily with an applicator onto your skin. 

This product should be used on the body and not on the eye area. 

I didn't read the instruction that this is supposed not to be used in the eye area but a lot of people in Ipsy's website says its ok but just don't rub it in. The glitter are larger than usual cosmetic glitter. I did it on my eyes and nothing happened so its probably okay once in a while. To apply this is to press it on the skin and not the swiping motion.

Adding a healthy glow to cheeks is effortless with the variety of blush styles and shades available from NYX Cosmetics!

The NYX Powder Blush delivers sheer, silky color that glides on and blends beautifully creating a natural glow. 

The NYX Mosaic Blush contains five matte and shimmery shades in one compact blend to create a flush of color and dazzling glow! 

The NYX Cream Blush offers radiant color for a dewy, sultry, long lasting finish! 

Ipsy sent me the Tickled color and boy how it suits me! I love how creamy it is and it last at least half day for me.You will have to put up with the oily look it gives but just think of it like a dewy makeup look. :)

Freeman Beauty
Psssst!® The TRUE Original Dry Shampoo
Psssst!® is the TRUE original Dry Shampoo to put an end to bad hair days! Passed down from generation to generation, and friend to friend, this 40-year Dry Shampoo legacy now includes a system of essentials, dedicated to extending the life of your hair color and style.

Lightweight, talk-free formula soaks up oils, sweat, and product build-up, taking hair from dirty, flat and matte to refreshed and revived. Water not required: just spray, brush and go for hair that feels and smells freshly shampooed! Stash in your gym bag, work bag, or overnight bag. 

To Apply:
When needed, shake can vigorously and hold 6” to 8” from hair. Lift sections of hair and lightly spray scalp and roots. Shake can between sprays for best results. Wait a few minutes, then brush and style as desired. 

I love that this gives you volume and the smell is very fine. I don't usually use dry shampoos but I will definitely give it a try! This works better on a dirty one day hair too.

The look I did: J.Cat Sparkling Cream Palette on my eyelids, Cailyn Eyeliner near lashes and under, NYX Blush on cheeks and Starlooks lip pencil all over my lips.


I was excited for the July Ipsy bag just because the bag looks so different. Its a plastic tube that immediately signifies water-proof summer! It holds a lot of makeup goodies too instead of the usual pouch that is tight. With this, it is rounded and most of the round beauty stuff can be accommodated inside. 

Perfect bag!


POP Beauty
Pouty Pop Crayon

POP's Pouty Pop Crayon nourishes, treats, and adds that perfectly-plumped pop to lips. These extra-nourishing balms gently bounce onto lips creating a plumped & pillowy pout leaving them with luscious, long-lasting colour with a super-smooth texture. Available in six shades.

Following shades available in the ipsy Glam Bag: Rose Romance, Coral Crush, and Fuchsia Flirt. 

I got Rose Romance which is pale pink. But what I did is I tinted my lips with Benefit Benetint first then added this pouty crayon on top of it so I don't look to pale and it adds gradient effect. Its like a chubby stick that's easy to handle. Very creamy and easy to apply too!

Benefit's original rose-tinted stain is kiss-proof, see-through color for lips & cheeks that lasts for hours. Naturally sheer & sexy on all complexions...it’s innocent yet provocative. It's loved by celebs, makeup artists and gals around the world. It's the sexiest flush you can get from a bottle! 

How to apply: Brush three strokes on the apples of your cheeks & blend quickly with fingertip. Apply on lips & blend. For a deeper "pop" of color, repeat. Amp up the staying power of your lip color...wear benetint under your favorite lipstick or lip gloss. Wear under high beam on cheeks for a healthy, dewy glow. 

I like this because it does give you a natural blush. The brush is small so you might have to dab a few more in your cheeks to get a brighter stain. This is one of my favorites in the makeup world. it really does work and it doesn't give you a clownish look.


Mineral Face SPF 20 Unscented Moisturizer

Keep the sun and environment at bay with this SPF 20 broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen; a clear, Titanium Dioxide based formula (for those who are Zinc sensitive) made with 98% natural ingredients. Organic Acai Oil - high in Omegas-3/6/9, Vitamins B1/2/3, plus antioxidant Vitamins C and E - delivers a powerful defense against aging. Organic Sunflower Seed Extract promotes elasticity while organic Linseed Oil, containing Alpha-Linolenic Acids, reduces redness and irritation. The phyto-protector Plankton Extract rejuvenates, as organic Cucumber Extract calms skin.

This sunscreen is hypoallergenic, paraben-free, ultra sheer, anti-aging, and water resistant for 40 minutes. 

This gives me a  whitish pink cast on my face. I just used a little because of that matter. It didn't give me a breakout so that it's a good sign that we will be buddies. I just wished that it would be a little bit bigger. :)

BH Cosmetics

California Collection Eyeshadow Sample

This BH Cosmetics makeup palette includes a shade from each of the California Collection palettes: Hollywood, San Francisco, and Malibu. 

The San Francisco palette was inspired by the classic California city and style of San Francisco! This new magnetic paper palette brings together a beautiful mix of coppery golds and skyline blues reminiscent of the bridges and bay breeze. With 16 eyeshadows and 4 blushes, the San Francisco palette will transform you into a sophisticated bay-area girl, every time. 

The Hollywood palette has you covered with red-carpet reds to limelight greens that are sure to take your look from ordinary to extraordinary! This makeup palette includes 16 eyeshadows and 4 blushes and comes in a compact magnetic paper palette. 

Be a beach babe year-round with the Malibu makeup palette. Get that sun-kissed glow with 16 warm and cool-toned eyeshadows and 4 blushes, inspired by the hot summers on the Malibu coast. Select from deep blue and aqua to sandy browns and sunset oranges. 

The full size magnetic palettes come with a foldable mirror, making it perfect for when you are on the go! 

I love this sample palette. Purple goes great with my dark brown eyes and its very flexible. Pair it with gold and you have very nice looking eyeshadow tandem. People gave me nice compliments the moment they see it. It has a shimmer that is not overpowering so you don't have to worry for too much sparkle.

Sexy Hair

Soy Renewal Beach Spray Conditioning & Texturizing Spray

Creates beachy undone texture that looks and feels like you’ve spent a day at the beach. Contains argan oil which helps nourish, protect and heal hair damage. 
I was so excited for this but when i used it, I was disappointed. I have very fine hair so it really didn't give me beachy waves, just crispy texture. It did give me a little volume, just a little. I will still try though for a few times and I will see if there's a chance it will work for my hair.

The colours of the Sparkling Cream Palette look so so pretty *-* It's just sad that it's not to use on the eyes :(
