Hello everyone! Today I wanted to share with you the items I received in my July Ipsy bag. The theme of this month’s bag is Sensationally Sunkissed, and everything looks really fun! In case you haven’t heard about Ipsy before, it’s a $10 a month subscription service where you receive four to five deluxe samples and/or full-size products from skincare, makeup, hair and beauty brands. When you sign up for the bag, you take a quiz about your preferences, skin type and tone, etc., and then the products each month reflect your interests. In case you’re interested in signing up, click here! I’ve been using Ipsy for about eight months now or so, and I’ve been happy with my bag every single month so far.
July Ipsy Bag
Here is what I got in my July Ipsy bag!
The bag this month is just kind of a plain pink plastic bag with ruffles around the edges. I like the color but I’m not crazy about the plastic and ruffles, but that’s just me.
The theme this month was Sensationally Sunkissed.
Marrakesh Hair Care Marrakesh Endz
What Ipsy says: Our powerful blend of nutrient-rich Argan Oil, from Morocco, ultra fortifying Hemp Seed Oil, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, and Panthenol seals and repairs split ends, while preventing future damage. Ends will naturally look and feel thicker with long lasting frizz and static control that is safe for color treated hair!
What I say: I love hair products and argan oil, so I think I’ll really like this!
Models Own Nail Polish in Red Sea
What Ipsy says: The Models Own SPLASH collection dives straight into summer. Revitalize your entire polish collection; wear alone for a wash effect, or over your favorite color polish for a glistening top coat. Inspired by the sea and distant shores, this pretty collection will have you dreaming of summer haze and tropical sun. Each polish contains five different chunky hand-cut glittery flakes that are guaranteed to glisten, sparkle and refract the light. ipsy subscribers who receive this product will receive Red Sea, a wave of energetic fuchsia-red.
What I say: I love nail polish, and this seems like a really bright, fun color for summer. I think I’ll probably use it as more of a top coat than color on its own.
Pixi Beauty Mini Tinted Brilliance Balm in the shade Pretty Pink
What Ipsy says: Packed with lip-loving ingredients, this glossy gel balm protects & hydates lips instantly. After the balm wears off, lips are left tinted with a flattering, personalized hue just for you (color & intensity depends on pH level of lips).
What I say: I love lip products and I love the color pink, so I think I’ll really like this balm. It has a hint of peppermint scent to it, which is really nice and refreshing. I think it’s kind of cool that it changes color a bit depending on the lips of the person wearing it, so I’ll let you know how it works for me!
Pur-lisse pur-protect essential daily moisturizer spf 30
What Ipsy says: Stay protected with pure flower power. Pur~lisse’s unique peptide complex, Lotus Lupine 5, and Hydra-Shield Complex, offers superior full-spectrum sun protection in a light weight nourishing moisturizer. Skin is pampered and protected against premature aging caused by the day’s rays. Recently featured in Vogue as Editor’s Favorite Summer Sun Product,this anti-aging moisturizer has SPF 30 built-in, so you’ll get extra protection for incidental sun exposure. You’ll love the lightweight, yet nourishing, texture. Plus, it doesn’t leave skin with a white tint, so you can use with or without makeup. This moisturizer dries down to a healthy glow, and is perfect for sensitive skin. The ritual: After cleansing skin, apply liberally. The most effective use is 30 minutes before sun exposure.
What I say: I’m always down for trying new sunscreens, and this one doesn’t have too much of a strong or perfumey scent, which is nice. The bottle says it’s for normal to dry skin tones, so I don’t know how well this will work for me with my combo to oily skin, but I’ll still give it a try.
Bare Minerals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in the shade Divine Wine
What Ipsy says: Meet the next generation in eyeshadow: creamy, long-wearing color meets exceptional skincare benefits and broad spectrum SPF protection. Chock-full of skin-loving ingredients, this breakthrough product delivers 5 benefits in one luxurious formula:
1.) 12-hour long-wearing color
2.) Super-charged primer
3.) Powerful brightening benefits
4.) Smoothes fine lines
5.) Protects with SPF
What I say: Holy longest product name ever! Haha. I’m not crazy about the color, which is like a chocolate taupe color, but the formula feels nice and creamy. After I swatched it on my hand, it blended nicely and then stayed put so I had to scrub a bit to fully get it off my hand. So it looks like it has good staying power, and it’s cool that is has sunscreen in it, so we’ll see how it looks on me and how it wears throughout the hot summer days here.
