Ipsy Glam Bag: July 2013

Hi readers!

I received my first Ipsy Glam Bag on Tuesday and I’m so excited! The theme for this bag is Beach Beauty and it has great items for the summer.

How cute is this see-through hot pink bag that it came in?!?

$ Note: All prices are in US dollars. $

Nailtini Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer in Mai Tai | Full Size! | $13

Beach-ready doesn’t stop at your coverup! It goes all the way down to your toes! Nailtini is making sure your toes are nothing less than intoxicating this summer with our seasonal fave shade, Mai Tai. This rich creamy tangerine sunrise is the perfect complement to sandals and sun-kissed skin.

This is not a colour that I wear, but I’ll still give it a shot, and it’s always good for nail art.

Sexy Hair Weather Proof Humidity Resistant Spray | 40ml sample | full size: 100ml / $18.95

A high-performance humidity resistant spray that combats frizz by providing a protective barrier against moisture. Weather Proof promises to leave your hairstyles intact, removing any chance of humidity attacking mis-haps.

I don’t find that my hair gets really frizzy in the summer, but I’ll still add this to my routine to see if I notice any difference.

COOLA Mineral Face SPF 20 Unscented Moisturizer | 7ml sample | full size: 50ml / $36

Keep the sun and environment at bay with this SPF 20 broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen; a clear, Titanium Dioxide based formula (for those who are Zinc sensitive) made with 98% natural ingredients. Organic Acai Oil – high in Omegas-3/6/9, Vitamins B1/2/3, plus antioxidant Vitamins C and E – delivers a powerful defense against aging. Organic Sunflower Seed Extract promotes elasticity while organic Linseed Oil, containing Alpha-Linolenic Acids, reduces redness and irritation. The phyto-protector Plankton Extract rejuvenates, as organic Cucumber Extract calms skin.

This sunscreen is hypoallergenic, paraben-free, ultra sheer, anti-aging, and water resistant for 40 minutes.

My current daily lotion is about to run out soon so this is great timing!

POP Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon | 1 crayon sample | full size: 6 crayons / $25

POP’s Pouty Pop Crayon nourishes, treats, and adds that perfectly-plumped pop to lips. These extra-nourishing balms gently bounce onto lips creating a plumped & pillowy pout leaving them with luscious, long-lasting colour with a super-smooth texture. Available in six shades.

I got the shade coral crush. I have not tried it yet, but I will do a post update when I do.

BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Sample | full size: $9.95

This BH Cosmetics makeup palette includes a shade from each of the California Collection palettes: Hollywood, San Francisco, and Malibu.

  • The Hollywood palette has you covered with red-carpet reds to limelight greens that are sure to take your look from ordinary to extraordinary!
  • The San Francisco palette was inspired by the classic California city and style of San Francisco!
  • Be a beach babe year-round with the Malibu makeup palette.

The San Francisco colour is definitely the one I will wear the most; the Hollywood colour I see myself wearing for a night out; and the Malibu colour I’m not sure about, it feels a bit too yellow for me. I will do a post update once I’ve had the chance to try them out.


The total of this bag is approximately $30, that is double what I paid for it so that’s pretty good! And I will be using all of these products too.
