On The Wild Side (My Glam by Ipsy June 2013 Bag)

Hey guys! So I know this is a little bit late but I still wanted to share with you what I got for my June Glam Bag (Ipsy) in case you're thinking about signing up for it. I love, love, love beauty subscriptions because it opens up my world to products that I wouldn't know about or try if it didn't come in them. 

Right now, I am subscribed to My Glam, Beauty Box 5, and New Beauty Test Tube. I am also gonna be sharing what I got in the other two in the next posts if you're curious about them! I'm actually cancelling my Beauty Box though. I'll tell you more when I talk about June's box.

Anyway, I am particularly happy with this month's glam bag. It come's in around the 15th of the month so I'll try to share July's bag as soon as I get it.

So on to the items.....

As usual, it comes in the pink bubble mailer. And in case you didn't know, every month, you also get a small make up purse! This month's purse is a leopard print bag with neon green zipper. It's made out of water resistant material so it's perfect for bringing to the beach or the pool!

There's a PURPLE GEL LINER BY CAILYN (retail: $21) I love the packaging on this! The top part comes of and reveals a brush. SO convenient! I've never really used colored gel liner before but I think this might be good for summer days when I want to wear a little liner. It would be a little bit softer and more subtle than black.

J. CAT SPARKLING CREAM PALETTE (retail: $4.49) - This one, I'm not crazy about. It's basically just glitter in a palette. I THINK Ipsy is coming up with some kind of costume makeup contest so I think this one's in line with that. Not sure what I'm gonna use this for. Halloween maybe? Or it could be fun for holiday make up.

There's also NYX ROUGE CREAM BLUSH IN ORANGE (retail: $6) - I love NYX products! I've never tried their cream blushes before and this one's pretty good. Cream blushes are perfect for the summer since generally, cream make up holds better in the heat. The color pay off's pretty good too. I love this shade as well. It's perfect for my summer tan. Woot-woot!

And then there's STARLOOK'S LIP PENCIL in TIPSY (retail: $12)- This is one of those things that I'm glad I get in subscription boxes. This lip liner is in a really pretty matte peachy-pink color. It's something I wouldn't necessarily pick up but I'm excited to try. I think it's gonna look really pretty with a nude-ish lip gloss on top.

Lastly, I got the PSSSST! INSTANT DRY SHAMPOO (retail: $5.99) - Cute name, huh? I love dry shampoos and have tried a few from different brands. This one works as well as others but I'm not fond of the smell. It kind of smells chemically like hair spray. I don't love it but I don't hate it either. It works, so hey! I'll use it.

There's also the little product and offers card that came with this month's bag. 

There you go. All in all, I'm very pleased with this bag and I'm looking forward to July's! I hear there's gonna be a deluxe size Benetint in there as well as a lip crayon. Woohoo! 

I highly recommend signing up for Ipsy. It's one of the cheapest out there. Not every product is a great fit but you definitely get your money's worth with the stuff that do! The overall retail cost for all the products this month is about $50 and subscription is only $10!)If you decide to sign up, use my referral link, will ya? Sign up here. :)
