JULY IPSY BAG 2017

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day! It’s July!! Well half way through July. We’re past the “omg it’s already July stage”, but don’t worry we’ll be on the “omg it’s August” stage in no time! With it being already being the middle of month, it’s time to share my Ipsy bag subscription! This is my second month with Ipsy and being IMG_8380completely honest, I wasn’t all that thrilled with the June bag and wasn’t really looking forward to the July bag. OH BOY WAS I WRONG! The July bag is awesome! Save to say i’ve used every product this month and 3 have become an everyday staple. So enough rambling i’m just going to jump right into the products!

Before actually getting into the products, can we just take a second to droll over the makeup bag. It’s so adorable like guys it’s an egg! This month I only had two goals. First goal was to get up IMG_8382earlier and make the most of my day. The second goal was to take more time to myself. I am taking 3 classes, working full time, and making YouTube videos. So i’m a pretty busy woman and this month’s bag is all about taking the time to yourself to relax and sleep. Which I can proudly say i’ve been doing all day. Right now I am in a messy bun, oversized sweater and leggings, which is a rare sight for me because i’m always on the go. So today is all about catching up on work cuddled up with a warm tea in my cozy bed. I’m getting off topic- the bag is cute! Okay moving on.

The first product I pulled out of the bag is this Tarte Amazonian clay waterproof bronzerIMG_8383 in the shade “park ave princess”. I was so happy and shocked that a Tarte product would appear in my bag! I have been researching this bronzer and having my eye on it ever since it came out! So i’m just over the moon happy that I get to try it out before I go make the full sized purchase. The packaging is adorable with a nice snake like print on the front. It sucks there isn’t an attached mirror but it’s a travel sized product so we can’t get too greedy.  The formula is so smooth and has that perfect dewy shine on the face. Overall so happy about this product! It’s made it’s way into the everyday makeup bag!

Second product is the Ginger + Gold Illuminating Peach-Gold Blush by Seraphine

IMG_8385botanicals. I’ve never heard of this brand before and was a little skeptical of the blush part of it because it does have some shimmer to it. But oh my goodness when I applied it to the face it just made everything come together. It wasn’t as harsh as I thought it was going to be, it was that perfect amout of shimmer to highlight my cheekbones. I wore this the other day when I w

ent out for patio drinks with my girlfriends and I got complements on my dewy makeup look. I paired this with the Tarte bronzer (see above), and the Becca Opal highlight. Also not bad to mention that it’s vegan, gluten-free, andGMO-free, so feel free to take a bite it’s healthy! (I’m totally joking, please don’t eat this).

 

Third product I was so confused about. I opened the top to a brush and couldn’t figure out what to do with it…until I realized the bottom part came off. It’s the IMG_8400Chella Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Cream. The top part is the brush which comes apart to dip into the taupe cream at the bottom of the tube. It’s very pigmented so be careful when applying this, you only need one dip of the brush to do both brows! It’s very nice in application and has a beautiful natural finish on the brows! It’s a great staple to an everyday no makeup/makeup look!

Fourth product I honestly had no idea what it was (again till I figured out how to open it). It’s the treStique mini concealer crayon in the shade Porcelain. IMG_8392Now this shade is a bit light for me because i’m covered head to toe in fake tan but it works well as a nice brightener. I use my regular concealer under my eyes and over some imperfections and then I apply this concealer on my forehead and nose. It works wonders! It blends nicely with a brush (which I love because some concealer’s suck at that) and really brightens my face. I’m excited to use this product in the Winter when my face is the same shade as a piece of paper.

Finally, the best product to ever enter my skin care drawer is the Puretem Purevera Emulsion.IMG_8396 First of all the smell is amazing! It’s very calming and soothes my skin. I apply this after I wash and tone my face. It’s an aloe infused moisturizer to calm dry and irritated skin. Now it’s summer time and my face isn’t all dry but after putting this on I didn’t realized how dry my skin really was! My skin especially around my nose and under my eyes feel so soft now and it has to be this cream! I haven’t changed anything in my skin routine except adding this in as my final step. I’m so happy about this cream and can’t wait to use this in the winter when my face is 10X drier.

Overall, I am so happy this month! I was so bummed about June’s bag as I only got 1 product that I tolerated, all the other products just didn’t work on my skin or weren’t my right shade. However they really stepped up this month and I am happy to say i’m in love with every product I received this month! If you guys have July Ipsy bag, comment down below if you received any of the same products or different ones! I’ve love to hear to your thoughts! Thanks for reading, and enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂
