Ipsy Glam Bag Review July 2013

My boys get so many boxes, I decided to start getting a few for me.  I have loved all the “unboxing videos” of Ipsy and knew I had to try it.  Ipsy sends out a “Glam Bag” each much filled with deluxe samples and full size products.  As a busy mom, I don’t get time to shop around for new beauty and makeup items.  When you sign up, you fill out a survey about your skin tone, make-up habits etc.  Each month there will be a group of products.  If you want to cancel at anytime, you can do so right from your online account.  You will be sent 4-5 that match your profile. 
This month’s theme was Beach Beauty.

This is what is in my bag:

All glam bags are shipped in these cute pink envelopes.
First look after taking everything out of the bag
Ipsy doesn’t have a traditional information card.  There are many different products for each month and then you get 4-6 products that match your profile.  The card has all the companies that Ipsy partnered with that month.
Each month, the 4-6 deluxe samples and full size products are in a little glam bag.  This is a cute little pink page.  This is perfect for the beach or pool since it isn’t made of fabric.
BH Cosmetics California Collection eye shadow collection There are 3 sample eye shadows from California Collection: Hollywood, San Francisco and Malibu.  I love the Hollywood color.  I am not certain about San Francisco and Malibu.  I look good in cool colors and so I tend to stay away from brown and gold.
Benefit Benetint 2.5 mL (From Ipsy) “Benefit’s original rose-tinted stain is kiss-proof, see-through color for lips & cheeks that lasts for hours. Naturally sheer & sexy on all complexions…it’s innocent yet provocative. It’s loved by celebs, makeup artists and gals around the world. It’s the sexiest flush you can get from a bottle!How to apply: Brush three strokes on the apples of your cheeks & blend quickly with fingertip. Apply on lips & blend. For a deeper “pop” of color, repeat. Amp up the staying power of your lip color…wear benetint under your favorite lipstick or lip gloss. Wear under high beam on cheeks for a healthy, dewy glow. “This look really neat and I can’t wait to try it.
Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray This is supposed to give you that beach hair look.  It has Argan oil in it and is supposed to be heal damaged hair.  I have naturally curly hair that I straighten.  I am excited to try this and see if it keeps my hair curly.
Pop Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon in Romance Rose (Full Size $4.17)   This is a light pink/neutral color.  I tend to wear brighter lipsticks, so I will probably wear this with a brighter color.  I like how smooth it goes on.
Coola Mineral Face Sunscreen SPF 20:  (From Ipsy) “Keep the sun and environment at bay with this SPF 20 broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen; a clear, Titanium Dioxide based formula (for those who are Zinc sensitive) made with 98% natural ingredients. Organic Acai Oil – high in Omegas-3/6/9, Vitamins B1/2/3, plus antioxidant Vitamins C and E – delivers a powerful defense against aging. Organic Sunflower Seed Extract promotes elasticity while organic Linseed Oil, containing Alpha-Linolenic Acids, reduces redness and irritation. The phyto-protector Plankton Extract rejuvenates, as organic Cucumber Extract calms skin.This sunscreen is hypoallergenic, paraben-free, ultra sheer, anti-aging, and water resistant for 40 minutes. “This will be perfect to put in my carry on for future beach vacation.

Final Thought:  I really liked my first Ipsy Glam bag.  I will use every product I received except for maybe the gold eye shadow.  I love the glam bag and will use it in my diaper bag or purse.  If you want to try out Ipsy, click HERE.  Do you subscribe to Ipsy?  What do you think of the glam bag?
