June Glam Bag

Finally after a few weeks of playing with the products, here is my overview of the June Ipsy Glam Bag. If you decide to subscribe to Glam Bags, please please please use my referral code (! This month's theme was on the wild side.

I absolutely love the bag itsself this month! Anyone that consistently reads this blog can probably tell that I'm a huge animal print lover. In this bag there were 5 products: Psssst! Dry Shampoo, Starlooks Lip Pencil, Nyx Rouge Cream blush, J.Cat Sparkling Cream Palette and Cailyn Line-Fix Gel Liner with Brush in Iron.

                                                          Psssst! Dry Shampoo

(Please ignore the rock in the background, I had to take the pictures for this post outside.) At first I was a little disappointed that I received this instead of the false eyelashes others received in their Glam Bags. But, as soon as I tried this, I was extremely happy that I did. This is an awesome dry shampoo! I used it after sleeping over a friend's house. The day before were extremely hot and humid, we had spent the day shopping and doing some errands. Then we got caught in the rain. Needless to say, my hair was gross the next day. I used this dry shampoo and it was as if none of that ever happened. It made my hair clean, soft and shiny. It also added some volume. I don't use dry shampoo often, but whenever I run out of this I definitely plan to repurchase. I should also mention the size is perfect for on the go.

                                                              Starlooks Lip Pencil

I received this lip liner in Tipsy, which is a coral/melon color. I don't have any lipsticks that would match this, so I wore it alone as a lipstick, instead of just a liner.  It is very creamy and went on very smoothly.  It is very pigmented and stayed on well until I ate. The color is also very bright! I actually really did like this lip liner, I just wish I had gotten it in a pink or red shade so I could get more use out of it.

                                                            Nyx Rouge Cream Blush

For about a month now I have been looking for a good cream blush. I had actually been looking at Nyx's Stick Blush, but I was so excited to see that I got this particular blush in my Glam Bag. The shade is Boho Chic, which is the absolute perfect shade for me! It is a nice natural looking pink, which is the type of color I really need. I have a fair complexion, if I wear any bright blushes I tend to look like a hooker. This blush is perfect for me. It is super creamy and blends extremely well. It can be worn sheerly (which is exactly what I've been looking for in a cream blush) or you can build it up. It is lightweight and I feel like it lasted all day. I would love to get more of these, they are great!

                                                          J. Cat Sparkling Cream Palette

 I received this palette in Suzie. I really, really wanted to love this product. I love glitter and when I saw this beautiful glitter palette I was excited to play around with it. Unfortunately, it wasn't as great as I hoped. I tried using this as a glitter eyeliner above black eyeliner on my lid and it just would not go on or stay. This product is like Vaseline packed with glitter. Even worse, I found out that this is not eye safe, yet there aren't any warning labels on the packaging. It is meant for use on the body. I don't really use body glitter, but I'm sure I could find a use for this as nail glitter. I was very disappointed with this product.

                                                     Cailyn Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner with Brush

I received this is Iron, which is a gunmetal color. I was hoping to get the purple colored one, but I'll probably get more use out of this one. I really really like this liner! It is so cool that the brush is included and it is a pretty good brush. Also very convenient for traveling, you won't lose your brush. The eyeliner is very creamy and glides on. It is pigmented, though it is a bit sheer on the first layer. I had to apply 2 layers to make it fully opaque. The lasting power is awesome! It lasted all day through heat and humidity. I would totally try out more colors! If you're just starting to use gel eyeliner, this is a great product to start with.

I really liked this bag, it would have been perfect if the J.Cat palette were better. This was my second Glam Bag and Ipsy continues to impress me. I can't wait to see what will be in next month's bag!


  1. I got the glitter palette in different colors but I wasn't impressed either. Your description of it was perfect. I am giving it to my niece because she loves glitter.. (: I wouldn't wear glitter anyways because I'm 20 years old + all glitter eyes just..isn't me. haha I love glitter though.

    1. Hi Sabrina! First off thank you so much for reading and thank you for your comment! From what I've seen, not many people were very impressed with the palette. I'm sure your niece will love it though! I did find a use for it after writing that post, it works pretty well as nail glitter. The only problem is it gets all over the place before adding a top coat. It does, however work and look great after adding a top coat.
