The July IPSY Summer Lovin Glam Bags have some pretty amazing goodies inside. This subscription allows you to try products that you may have otherwise not purchased. I find that it’s sometimes good to change up your beauty products, just to explore and see if there are other products that work in a different way to give you a different result. Any who, let’s see what in this bag!
I was totally happy with the bag itself. The colors are so vivid and bright and they just SCREAM summer to me. The bag is not cheap (which was a surprise) it is made of durable material (including the zipper). This was a BIG PLUS for me because, I love collecting beauty/makeup bags. (You can never have enough of them).
Now let’s take a look at the products that I received.
- Be A Bombshell Lip Balm – Ruby- This lip balm retails for $14. It’s very hydrating and leave a tint of color to your lips. Perfect for teenagers and adults who don’t want a lot of color to their lips.
OFRA Eyeshadow/Highlighter – Bliss – Retails for $15. This eyeshadow/highlighter is extremely pigmented and suitable for most skin tones. It is formulated for sensitive skin. It can be applied with a wet or dry brush for a shimmery finish.
Tarte Bronzer – Park Ave. Princess– Retails for $30. This is a highly pigmented, yellow gold, bronzing powder. I was in love at first swatch!
4. JOR’EL Parker Classico Perfume– Retails for $16. This perfume has gotten mixed reviews. I actually like it. It comes in a roller ball which makes for easy traveling and carry. It has a sweet, yet, unique scent, which has impressive staying power.
5. Eau Thermale Avene Cleanance gel– Retails for $20. Deep-penetrating, soap-free cleanser eliminates impurities and excess sebum without stripping the skin.
As you can see, this Ipsy bag has certainly paid for itself with the quality of products received.
