June Ipsy Glam Bag Review

My Ipsy* glam bag is in! And oh my goodness I love the bag! Amanda hated hers and gave it to Bug but I think it's super cute and unique. You can check out the rest of my Ipsy reviews here. Check out what I got!
ColourPop Cosmetics Crème Gel Liner in Get Paid
I am so happy I got this! It's not a color I would have normally picked for myself, because I'm a complete chicken shit. But I love it! I already have Swerve and knew I loved the liners in general. And I kind of think these are underpriced. ColourPop has some amazing products for such a great price! I got the full size liner.
Original Price: $5 (actual value: $5)

theBalm Cosmetics Meet Matt(e) Trimony Eyeshadow in Matt Kumar
I've heard of theBalm. It's not a bad brand. You can only get this color in the full pallet. It's a nice enough color, and the sample is big enough that it seems like it will last a little while. I also like the magnetic clasp. Nifty. There are nine colors in the full pallet so it's 1/9 of the retail size.
Original Price: $42 (actual value: $4.67)

Delectable by Cake Beauty Everything Balm
So this product didn't come in my bag. It was supposed to, but I got something else instead. Which was weird, but whatever, Ipsy sent me the two products I was missing anyway. I first heard about Cake Beauty in Ipsy. I got a hand cream in February. I like it, but it has aloe and, as I'm allergic, I don't use it often. Seems like everything has aloe these days! I got a - oz sample and retail is 1.6 oz
Original Price: $16 (actual value: $2.5)

Seraphine Botanicals Happy Hibiscus Blush
This is great for a few reasons. First of all, it's vegan/cruelty free. That is becoming more and more important to me. Plus, it's full size! The color is great, and I will probably have this double as an eyeshadow. That's a trend for me, things that aren't made as eyeshadows usually end up on my lids anyway. Cute packaging too! (I thought it was full size before even checking their site because the box has a barcode.)
Original Price: $18 (actual value: $18)

Soap & Glory Face Soap And Clarity 3-in-1 Daily Detox Vitamin C Facial Wash
I also didn't get this in my bag. Again, Ipsy was great and sent it out to me anyway. I love their customer service. I will have to try this. I've been taking better care of my face lately and I'm glad because I'm seeing major improvements. I got a - sample and retail is 11.8 oz.
Original Price: $12.19 (actual value: $1.03)

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Lounge
I wasn't supposed to get this, so this was a very happy surprise. I was a bit upset that I didn't get this when it was announced as a spoiler. Especially because Amanda did get it. I love this color, it has an undertone of green to it that looks really cool. I'm glad I accidentally got it, lol. I got a 0.03 oz sample and retail is 0.05 oz. That's more than half, which is great!
Original Price: $19 (actual value: $11.40)

jelly pong pong Fairy Lashes CURL mascara
I wasn't supposed to get this either. And it's not even one of the products Ipsy was doing this month. I have no clue how I got it instead of one of my other products. It's not bad, it works pretty well and it's pretty waterproof (I was crying a bit writing my Father's Day post...). Just another mascara in my bag, I guess. I do love that it's cruelty free. That is such a huge plus for me, like i said. I got the full size mascara, too which is always a plus. This is the third full size item I got, which is amazing.
Original Price: $21.95 (actual value: $21.95)

Total Retail: $121.95; Total Actual Value: $64.55 (plus the others that haven't come in!)

(I'm counting the two extra products because I still got them for $10 with my Ipsy bag.)

All in all I think this was a great month. Ipsy really redeemed itself, and because of a mix up I ended up getting two extra products. And when one of those extras was full size, and the other more than half size, I'll take that any day. The bag, again, is super cute and unique. I love all the bright colors on it, and the graffiti is pretty cool. Even without the mistake, I was supposed to have two full size items in this months bag, which is pretty good. Yeah, one of them was a $5 eye liner, but ColourPop is such an exceptional brand. The value for what I paid makes this well worth it to me. And to think I was going to unsubscribe if I got another brush!
