June 2016 Ipsy Unboxing

 

Yay! It's that time of month again, Ipsy time! In case you're not familiar with Ipsy, it is a monthly beauty subscription that comes with personalized make up and beauty products. Each month, there are exclusive offers from the brands that are featured in the bag and Ipsy stylists create special how-to tutorials. Every subscriber receives a glam bag, a small makeup pouch, filled with deluxed samples and full sized beauty products. I've been a subscriber for about three years now and have discovered so many great beauty products. The best part? It's only $10 a month and every time the pink mailer shows up on my doorstep, it feels like Christmas or my birthday. 

This month, I wasn't too excited about the makeup pouch. The theme of the month is Rebel Rebel and the pouch itself had graffiti all over it which is not necessarily my cup of tea. However, as soon I opened it and looked inside, my feelings about this month's bag completely changed. Here's what I received this month:

June 2016 Ipsy

01. theBalm Cosmetics // Meet Matt(e) Trimony Eyeshadow
I received this in the color Matt Moskowitz, a beautiful matte plum. This is super pigmented and perfect for the crease as a transition shade. Personally, I like to keep my eye makeup soft and subtle but I will definitely be reaching for this on days when I feel like I want a bolder eye look. Perfect for a night out!

02. Elizabeth Mott // Show Me Your Cheeks Blush
I always love trying new bushes and bronzers. When I pulled this out of my bag I was so excited! This blush came in the color Peach Pink, a beautiful iridescent peachy pink blush with just the perfect amount of sparkle. Swept across my cheeks, it gives me the perfect flush of color for those summer days ahead.

03. clariSEA // Deep Pore Detox Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Mask
This product might be a tad messy but it's very cool! This charcoal mask comes as a powder and is activated by water. I read that it can be used two ways. The first, create a paste with it and wear it as a mask. The second, mix equal parts with your daily cleanser and cleanse as usual. It claims to clear blackheads and breakouts plus it gently exfoliates. I'm already intrigued! I always enjoy sampling face masks and I'm so excited to try this.

04. Royal & Langnickel MODA // Crease & Smudge Brush
This dual ended brush is so cute and tiny! The bristles are so soft and I love that it's dual ended. It's one of those items that is easy to throw in your makeup bag when you're on the go. I'll definitely be using this to apply me Meet Matt(e) shadow I mentioned earlier.

05. ColourPop Cosmetics // Creme Gel Liner
Last but certainly not least is ColourPop. I already LOVE ColourPop Cosmetics, so I was very excited to see it included in my bag. I received the color Swerve, a rich onyx black. It is so smooth and creamy! I'm already thinking it will be great for a smokey winged liner. It would also be perfect to line the top waterline which helps create the illusion of bigger eyes. Now, who doesn't want that!

Lately, I have truly been enjoying all of the products in my Ipsy bag. This month, I'm genuinely excited to try everything I received. Are you subscribed to any monthly subscription services? I'd love to know! If you're interested in Ipsy, feel free to click here to sign up.
