July 2014 Ipsy Bag
I was totally surprised to see my Ipsy bag yesterday. I got my email last Thursday and I thought it said it would be delivered on July 17th, so I wasn’t looking for it. But YAY! it is here early! I think it is a pretty great bag this month. It has skincare, makeup, skincare/makeup combo LOL. All my favs! The theme for July’s Ipsy bag is Sensationally Sunkissed. That means BRONZER!

The bag is a hot pink faux leather laser cut bag. I think it is one of my favorite bags so far. Not something I would be immediately drawn to but I like it more each time I grab it.

Let take a look-see at what I got:

July 2014 Ipsy bareMinerals
July 2014 Ipsy bareMinerals READY eyeshadow in Inspiration
bareMinerals READY® Eyeshadow 2.0 in Inspiration   $20 @ulta.com
bareMinerals READY® Eyeshadow 2.0 provides vivid, pigment-packed color with seamless blendability  that lasts up to 12 hours. Powered by the proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral™ Complex, it delivers skin-nourishing benefits including reduced appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness plus boosted moisture levels.

This is my first bareMinerals eyeshadow. I have heard great things about them and wow they were right. These shadows are pigmented, soft and buttery. They blend so easily. I cannot wait to try them out. Plus I am a fan of purple so they had me as soon as I opened the compact. Oh the teeny compact! It is so cute. It is a mini version of the regular duo shadow compacts.

derma e BB Crème in Light with SPF 25     $29.50 @dermae.com
Instantly erase the look of imperfections and turn back the clock on aging skin.
This multi-functional mineral beauty balm is an advanced skincare formula that also conceals with
lightweight, color-correcting coverage.

I am always down with trying new BB creams. I am so glad they gave us the light version but it does look a little dark when first swatched. Derma e is a brand I quite like. I am a big fan of their Microdermabrasion scrub. Love that shit!

Pur~lisse Pur~protect Essential Daily Moisturizer SPF30     $55@purlisse.com
Stay protected with pure flower power. Pur~lisse's unique peptide complex, Lotus Lupine 5, and Hydra-Shield Complex, offers superior full-spectrum sun protection in a light weight nourishing moisturizer. Skin is pampered and protected against premature aging caused by the day's rays. This moisturizer dries down to a healthy glow, and is perfect for sensitive skin.
I always bump up my moisturizer’s SPF in the summer to a minimum of SPF30. So I was glad I got this sample. I used it this morning for my morning moisturizer. So far so good. Skin is soft. My makeup is staying on quite well today although I did use a primer.
July 2014 Ipsy Pixi
July 2014 Ipsy Pixi Mini Tinted Brilliance Balm
Pixi Beauty Mini Tinted Brilliance Balm in Unique Pink      $12 @pixibeauty.com
Packed with lip-loving ingredients, this glossy gel balm protects & hydrates lips instantly. After the balm wears off, lips are left tinted with a flattering, personalized hue just for you (color & intensity depends on pH level of lips).  Twist-up crayon requires no sharpening. Secure lid after use.
I am kind of in awe of this little balm. I have had self adjusting tints before but this one is the most flattering. After using this, my lips were a natural rosy pink. I just looked healthy. Plus it is very moisturizing and has a nice little minty scent.

July 2014 Ipsy pop beauty
July 2014 Ipsy POP Beauty Sunkissed Bronzer
POP Beauty Sunkissed Bronzer in Secret Sunshine       @popbeauty.com
This radiance enhancing bronze glow delivers a soft honey beamed hue, adding warmth and a sun-kissed lift to your complexion. With added vitamin E.

This bronzer is sofffftt. Like buttery soft. I am so going to use this as an eyeshadow. It blends that good! It is not a matte shade but neither is it shimmery. You can just see a hint of sheen when swatched or blended out. I probably wouldn’t use this as a contour with but I definitely as a bronzer.

Overall a great Ipsy bag. My favorite item so far has to be the Pixi Lip Balm. What did you think of this month's Ipsy bag?

  1. I always hear mixed reviews about Ipsy. Like most subscription boxes I guess it's a love/hate thing. I don't think I could commit to not knowing what I'm buying but good bags always make me wish I did! Great post, I'm glad you're happy with what you got! :)
