Ipsy Glam Bag {June 2014}

This month's Ipsy Glam Bag (join here!) is all about being Pretty in Paradise. These products are probably meant for a less is more kind of look that's easy to wear on the beach or in the heat. I'm not 100% in love with the products I received, but there are some gems. Also, this bag is so cool. It's by Rebecca Minkoff and it's covered in artsy pineapples!

This month I received:
♥ Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray (full size $9, sample $3)
♥ Be A Bombshell Lash Out Mascara (full size $15)
♥ Realtree For Her Perfume (full size $20, sample $1)
♥ Nyx Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee (full size $5)
♥ OFRA Universal Eyebrow Pencil (full size $13)

This bag is worth $37!
MINI REVIEWS

Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray

First off, this smells AH-mazing! I don't like the taste of coconut, but I love the sweet smell of it. I already have waves, but I like the way my hair gets even more wavy when I'm near the water, so of course I want to replicate it, and I think this works pretty well. You spray it on your hair lightly and scrunch your hair. It made the waves in my hair a little more messy and wild! 

Be A Bombshell Lash Out Mascara

This mascara has a terrible smell, like burnt rubber and chemicals, though the stench did lessen after a few days. I wanted to try the mascara nonetheless and it's a nice mascara, but I wouldn't say it's amazing. It's supposed to lengthen your lashes, but I wouldn't say it lengthened them as much as my go-to Sephora mascara, though it did make them look thick and it didn't clump. You win some, you lose some. 


Realtree For Her Perfume


OMG guys this smells so wonderful! On the website, this is how they described the scent: "Realtree for Her opens up with the sweet taste of pomegranate, a hint of persimmon and an exotic scent of orchids. It blends with lotus blossom and champaca flower and is followed by the rich scent of amber, the transient scent of violets and the depth of mahogany wood." This describes it perfectly; it's sweet, flowery, rich, and just all around lovely. 

Nyx Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee

I'm not a lip gloss girl. The color is okay, a little too light for me. It's a bit sticky with the lip gloss on, and left a sticky residue even after I wiped it off. I'm also not a fan over the overly-sweet vanilla scent either. 

OFRA Universal Eyebrow Pencil

This is a nice eyebrow pencil. It's a good light brown color that will work for a lot of people, though maybe not people with really light hair. I've been wanting a more defined brow and a few light-handed swipes makes them more defined and frames my face better. I've also been using this pencil as an eyeliner for days when I don't want to use black eyeliner. 

What did you get in your glam bag?

  4. I got the same items in my bag! I also liked most of them, and I am a lipgloss gal so I do enjoy the Nyx butter gloss. However I am partial to Bite's glosses, which are made of better ingredients I think :)

    I would love to see how the beach spray looks on you and how it works in your hair as I have always been curious about the effect of beach sprays! :)
