SUBSCRIPTION: Ipsy Glambag June 2017

by - June 16, 2017

As you can see, I'm still hanging on with Ipsy... I feel like my unbagging posts have become a running commentary on how I feel about the service and I'm not sure how you guys feel about that, but I don't want to ramble on too much about it in this one. I'm still subscribed for the moment - which I'm chalking up to wanting to redeem some of my Ipsy points before I unsubscribe. I still definitely recommend the service for people who are interested, because it's a great way to try out a bunch of new products each month, oftentimes ones that aren't easily available locally or are from smaller, less buzzed brands.

Anyway, if you want to see what I got this month, keep reading!

NYX Whipped Lip & Cheek Souffle in Pink Cloud
8ml Full Size - This pretty little two-timer can be used on your lips AND cheeks—perfect for the matchy matchy monochromatic look we keep seeing everywhere!

For me, this is a kind of meh inclusion. The shade, a really light, white based pink, doesn't suit my lips, but it actually does make a really pretty blush and I tried it out that way once already and I really liked the way it applied and wore on my cheeks. I think that's ultimately how I'll use it. Also, this is a full sized product, which is always nice in a subscription.

Peek Beauty Multiuse Black Primer
1.5g Deluxe Size - Everyone knows that amazing eye looks are all about that base, and this groundbreaking black primer is the perfect one! It amps up bold shadow hues, deepens smoky shades, and makes metallics pop.

I didn't really know what to think of this when I first got it - and the packaging is HORRIBLY designed, so it was really hard to get into. I was expecting it to be a sort of inky black, but it's actually pretty sheer, which I think makes it more usable for me personally. I'm going to try this as a base for metallics and see how it goes, but overall I'm still not really excited about this one.

doucce Maxlash Volumizer Mascara
Deluxe Size - We’re kinda self-conch about our puny lashes, but this lash-fattening formula makes our fringe look insanely lush, fluttery, and fab. Instant confidence boost!

I once got a doucce mascara from Ipsy that I basically fell madly in love with, so I was excited to try this one as well. Unfortunately, I don't think this one is for me. The brush is interesting, with the bristles being in basically three strips that form a sort of triangle shape, but it's absolutely huge and the formula is a little bit too wet for my tastes. I don't think it's bad, but it doesn't measure up to the one I loved from the brand.

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in What's A Budget
Full Size - Ultra-opaque. Insanely shiny. Unbelievably chip-resistant. You’re NOT gonna find a better polish out there. #trust

This is actually the third polish from Trust Fund Beauty that I've gotten in a subscription and I absolutely love the brand. I also really love this colour, especially in the summer, so I'm really, really happy with this. Keep an eye out, I'll try to include a photo of a manicure using this polish on my Instagram!

SPF Rx Ultra Clear Daily Skin Hydrator SPF 50
12.5ml Sample Size - This daily moisturizer has hyaluronic acid to help keep your skin hella hydrated AND boasts SPF 50 with 9% zinc oxide to help protect you from harmful UVA/UVB rays.

I haven't gotten the chance to actually use this on my face yet, but testing it out on the back of my hand made me pretty optimistic about it. Facial SPF for me can be really tricky because I'm picky about the texture, but this one had that really light, silky feeling that I prefer and I'm hoping that it'll wear really well under makeup.

Honestly, overall, this definitely isn't a hugely winning bag for me. I'm more than happy to test out the products that I got, but the only one that really excites me is the Trust Fund Beauty nail polish. I think that if I were a newer subscriber, I might have been happier about this bag overall, but as it is it's really just okay for me and probably not worth what I paid as far as how much I'll actually use the products. 

I realize that my Ipsy posts are getting a little bit less and less enthusiastic every month, but like I said at the beginning of this post, I think that's because I've been subscribed for so long that some of the shine has come off. I still think Ipsy has a lot to offer and would recommend trying out the service to people who never have before!

Anyway, thanks for reading and if you're a subscriber, I'd love to hear how you're feeling about Ipsy lately and see what you got this month in the comments!
