After vacationing it's way thru the south my Ipsy Glam Bag for June has arrived in California! I have to say this is not my favorite month and I think one of the main products was a poor choice for this bag all together. I do like the majority of items I received however I may be swapping them for different colors so no swatches for those products this month.
This months theme:
Funny thing is I actually have this blush in this exact same color just in powder form. I do like the color but since I already have it in another form I'm thinking of swapping it out for another color.
Chella | Ivory Lace Highlighter *this was an "OR" product
Again not sure if I will keep this one but it is meant for highlighting your brow bone, inner corners of eyes, and even your cupids bow above your lips.
Starlooks | Lip Liner in Bare
Again not really my color I'm more of a pink gal when it comes to lip products.
I'm really pleased I received this in purple it's the color I was hoping for. I like that this goes on smooth and has a lot of staying power after I took the swatch I tried to rub it off my hand but it was not budging.
I am so unimpressed and disappointing in this product, this is the item that I think was a poor choice for this months bag. The glitter in this palette is very gritty and the petroleum it's suspended in doesn't help make it any better. When swatching these I had tons of fallout and even swatched with my finger they came out very sparse. The prodcut did not seem to want to stick to my skin at all and I was left with a glittery mess instead of smoothly applied look. These are suggested to be used as body glitter or for body art... How old am I? Too old for body glitter that's for damn sure!
I do not recommend using this product in the eye area as the glitter could be potentially harmful if it were to make it's way into your eyes.
Ipsy has stated on their FB Page:I wont be using it for any of those things because it's such a poor quality product. I hope in the future they tread more carefully around products that market themselves as one thing but are actually meant for another purpose.
Ipsy It is meant to be used as body glitter not eye shadow. Use it for body art, body glitter, or a little added shine to your lipgloss! Hope that helps!
Overall I think this was an OK month it wasn't the best but it's also not the worst. I feel the J Cat Palette was a poor choice and removing it and putting a good quality product would have taken this month to a better place.
The other "OR" products this month were J Cat Beauty False Lashes or Psst! Dry Shampoo.
