The best day of the month is here again - my Ipsy Glam Bag arrived! While I usually look ahead of time to see what treats are on the way, this month had me particularly excited; a couple of my favorite brands were selected for me this month! So deservedly so, I watched my shipping information all day today, and rushed to the mail box once it arrived. In case you aren't familiar with Ipsy, Ipsy is a subscription service that bills you $10 per month to send you 5 deluxe (and sometimes full sized!) beauty samples in a makeup bag. I've been a subscriber for about three years now, and if you're interested, you should totally check them out! I really like the mid month pick me up, and it really is a great way to try out brands you might not have seen otherwise.
This month's theme was Summer Friday, so the bag was packed with cute essentials for the summer. This months bag was a clear plastic bag printed with popsicles and ice creams, and while this isn't my favorite bag they've ever done, it will totally get some use this summer at the pool.
Here's all the treats I got!
The first item that I received is from Adesse New York! I received a polish in the shade "Surfer Girl" which is a really pretty tiffany blue. I need fun colors in my nail polish arsenal so I am so excited to try this brand out this month! I tend to only go for bright pinks, so this blue is so different!
This is one of the most exciting products of this month! It Cosmetics is one of my favorite brands, one that my mother got me started on years ago. I never have had the chance to try a mascara from them, and this one looks incredible! I'm doing a fair amount of traveling this summer, so this tiny travel size is going to be perfect to take with me. I'll probably do a separate review for this mascara, because I have been on the search for a good mascara for what seems like ages, and if this is amazing, I'll totally want to share the results with everyone!
I am hardcore obsessed with lipsticks. I haven't counted recently, but I would guess that my collection is nearing into the hundreds of tubes of liquid lips and sticks and balms. I love how lipstick can totally change a makeup look easily, and fun colors are totally a must. I love the shade of this Cailyn lipstick, its a nice nude pink shade, perfect for work and every day wear. I'll totally toss this in my bag to take everywhere with me, just because the shade is so easy to wear.
This is the product that got me over the top excited for this bag to come. I have loved Urban Decay for years, and never got any in a Glam Bag, until this month! I am a bit obsessed with highlighters, so I am so excited to get to try out this pan of Afterglow highlighter.
I've never tried Beauty and Pinups, but my hair is always in need of a little TLC. With summer coming up, I need all the moisture I can get, so I am really looking forward to trying this masque out!
Overall, I am really pleased with this months bag. I have a Play! by Sephora bag coming later this month, so we'll see if it stacks up to the competition!
Have a happy Wednesday!
