Ipsy Glam Bag {July 2015}

It's Ipsy time! The July bag is all about Summer Lovin' aka sun-kissed, shimmery skin, moisturized lips, and fresh hair. I'd give this bag an A since I loved every product except for one. 

What I got:
 Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess (sample $10, full $30)
 Eva-NYC Freshen Up Dry Shampoo (sample $5, full $24)
 Be A Bombshell Lip Balm in French Kiss (full $14)
 Ofra Eye Shadow & Highlighter in Bliss (full $15)
 Bare Republic's Natural Tinted Face (sample $4, full $15)

This month's bag is worth $48!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess 

I've always wanted to try a product from Tarte! A bronzer would not be the first thing I'd pick to try from this company since I don't wear them all that often, but this particular bronzer is beautiful. The color is subtle (which is great for my pale skin), metallic but not shimmery, and the powder itself smells fruity. Also, I really love the packing. The full size is pricey, but I would recommend this if you're looking for a great product. 

Eva-NYC Freshen Up Dry Shampoo 

This doesn't beat my holy grail dry shampoo from Batiste, but it's still a fantastic dry shampoo. It smells very fresh and light, it doesn't leave my residue, and it doesn't leave my hair white. I wouldn't say it works as well as Batiste at soaking up oil, but I would still recommend this. 

Be A Bombshell Lip Balm in French Kiss 

You can't have enough lip balms, right? This one feels silky on the lips and not greasy. It's thick but not too thick. It also has a subtle light pink color, which sadly makes me look sickly, so I've only been putting it on at night. It leaves my lips moisturized and soft. I would recommend this, but maybe get the red color instead. 

Ofra Eye Shadow & Highlighter in Bliss 

Wow! This eye shadow-highlighter combo is the most beautiful color I've ever seen. It's like a bronze-champagne color and it's super pigmented. It's the smoothest shadow I've ever touched. It's seriously like silk. I would 100% recommend this. 

Bare Republic's Natural Tinted Face 

I like BB creams and tinted moisturizer's because I don't like having thick foundation on my skin, but this tinted face cream is too thin and watery. It's smooth and blends well and smells nice, but I can't get over how water it is. I wouldn't recommend this.

  1. You got a good one! One of my co-workers got a very similar bag, I was really hoping for the dry shampoo, since I never have that when I travel, that would have been perfect! Also, the Tarte bronzer is a really solid sample! I love wearing bronzer all Summer long. I can't tell exactly what the eyeshadow looks like, but it SOUNDS perfect! I just put up my ipsy/Birchbox review for June. You are so on top of things, haha.

    Btw- in my planner THIS WEEK is to write you back!! Sorry it's taken so long. Hope you are having a great week Sara!

  2. I feel like I will need to make the transition from Birchbox to Ipsy soon. This looks like such a great bag, especially in comparison to my most recent box. I literally got a bronzer that's so tiny, my brush doesn't even pick it up. So lame.

  3. Gahh I haven't gotten my ipsy bag yet this month due to the month and sucks - love everything you got though! Batiste is my absolute favorite dry shampoo - seriously, it rocks. But hopefully I'll get to try this stuff too.

  5. That eye shadow sounds amazing! Such a great bag!!

  6. Wow $48 worth of product is a lot! That Tarte bronzer looks so so pretty on your skin. It looks like it would be worth the splurge!


  7. You got the tarte bronzer!!! ahhhh! SO jealous. I was pulling for that product. Last month's bag was great and this months was so meh for me.

  8. Wow a Tarte bronzer?? Awesome! I don't use any face products but I do know those are quite popular!

  9. Sounds like a great bag! P.S. I am obsessed with Batiste too!

  10. It's great! I'm glad it's a subtle color because I'm so pale!

  11. I opened the bag and was like whhhhattt? My month's are the complete opposite because last month was meh and this month is pretty good.

  12. I hope you get your Ipsy bag soon!!

  13. I generally hear better reviews about Ipsy than Birchbox, which is why when I was looking into which to pick, I went for Ipsy. I feel like Ipsy gives bigger and better samples.

  14. Thanks!! It's a pretty good dry shampoo, but I don't think I'll be getting it again because the full bottle is $24! Yikes! Too much for me!


Hello, beautiful! Thanks for leaving a comment!
Have a lovely day!
