This months theme for Ipsy was "Summer Lovin'," containing products fit for a great summer routine - being nice and refreshing and a perfect match for the heat and sunshine.
Spoiler: I'm overjoyed to announce that I didn't receive any sunscreen!
The bag this month is colorful and fun. I love the front-zippered bags better than the ones that zip on the top. I use these bags as a wallet in my purse, and they're super easy to just carry what I need. It's also canvas instead of pvc, which is nice if I'm going to be out in the sun.
1. Teeez Cosmetics: Read My Lips Lipstick in Killing Me Softly (matte coral)
I've been trying more lipsticks lately, and was excited about this one because I love matte lipsticks and I loved the packaging of this one - but coral really isn't a color that intrigues me. This is a great formula, but not the color for me.
2. Crown Brush: Professional Tweezers
The color options for this product were either black or pink, and I'm thrilled to have received the pink one! I'll be honest, I really don't need another tweezers, but this may end up in a giveaway someday!
3. Jor'el Parker: Classico
This scent is described as exotic - with hints of Indian Tuberose, Turkish Cyclamen, and Spanish Mandarin. I hate perfume. There are two perfumes in the whole world right now that I will wear when I feel the occasion calls for it, and this is not even close to being one of those. I will say this is a great summer scent, but I do not like it. It will also be in a giveaway someday.
4. Pur~Lisse: Pur-Bright Ultra Skin Brightening Serum
I always get excited when I get new skincare items in a subscription box, and then am usually let down by ingredients or being a product that I really have no use for. This serum is supposed to brighten and even out your skin tone - perfect for those sunspots I've been racking up this summer - but it contains alcohol so I cannot use it. I did recently change my Ipsy Quiz to indicate that I do not want anything but makeup, so fingers crossed for next month for some good makeup items!
5. Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics: 2-in-1 Shadow/Liner
This is an eyeliner claiming to give a thicker line that is easily blend-able into any eyeshadow look. The color is a nice neutral brown, which honestly isn't a typical eyeliner color for me, but I'm debating trying it as a lid color or just tossing it in the giveaway pile.
I also received shimmer tattoos as an extra points-bones item this month. I'll be 100% honest and admit that I only purchased them to use up my points before them expired. I won't use them. They are pretty though!
This month was nice. I know I sound harsh about some items, but I've been in a slump lately and honestly haven't touched my makeup in about 3 weeks - so it's not that I don't want to try the products that sound good to me, it's just that I don't know if I'll use them or not. I love makeup, and trying new makeup, but it's just not in me lately. On the plus side, if I don't use them, they'll be in the giveaway pile for one of you to win in the near future!
If you'd like to try Ipsy for just $10 a month, I'd be flattered if you'd use my link to sign up. It doesn't get me too much, just a few points that can be used to"purchase" an extra product to be included in the following months' bag. You'll get a referral link if you sign up too!
