This June, Ipsy has decided to go "on the wild side" with glittery fun things. After seeing the spoilers running around the internet, I was pretty excited for this bag. I know I was supposed to be cancel last month, but because last months bag was so awesome, I decided to keep them until I receive a bag I absolutely dislike.
Cailyn Gel Eyeliner in Iron ($21.00)
The first thing I picked up was this eyeliner. It comes in a pot with a built-in brush. According the box, it claims to be "water resistant, smudge-proof, 24 hour wearing and safe for sensitive eyes." While swatching this on my hand, I noticed the formula to be slightly creamy and easy to apply. I first thought it was very light, but then noticed that the color was Iron. So it isn't meant to be jet black eyeliner. As for all the other claims, I still have to test them out. Possible full review later.
Nyx cream blush in Orange ($6.00)
The next item is a blush from Nyx. I was kind of hoping for any powder blushes, but it's okay. I'm willing to try anything. At first glance, the color was a tid bit on the scary side of orange. But once swatched and fully blended, it came out to a gorgeously sheer peachy shade. It was quite lovely actually. I can't wait to use this.
J. Cat Beauty sparkling cream palette in Volta ($4.50)
You know that glitter you used to play with as a kid? Imagine that in an eyeshadow form and you have this palette. I'm not really sure if I'd ever use this palette. Once swatched on my arm it was just that - glitter with a clear wax that helps it stay on the eyes. Perhaps this would look lovely as an add additional add on for evening looks.
Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter ($18.00)
This highlighter looks lovely. I have yet to use this one but it looks promising.
Starlooks Lip Pencil in Bare ($12.00)
I've been noticing a lot of Starlooks products in beauty subscription boxes, so I was quite excited to try this one out. The formula was creamy and nice. The color I received was a mauve taupey kind of color. Probably not my cup of tea but I'll definitely try this.
Overall: For $10, this was a pretty good box. Everything in my bag was full sized which is amazing. I love when subscription boxes do this. I could see myself using the eyeliner and blush quite often (which is more than twice the price of the whole bag.)
