Ipsy Glam Bag: July 2014 – with unboxing video!

Hi everyone!

I finally had time to do an unboxing video of my July Ipsy Glam Bag, yay! For those of you new to my blog, I’m a new mom and time has become a bit of a luxury lately. But my videos are unedited one-time run productions so they don’t take long to shoot.

This month’s theme is Sensationally Sun Kissed: Here comes the sun and a Glam Bag full of beauty products so good that even the sun would worship it. There isn’t a gray cloud in sight this summer as we give you an amazing selection of brands and products fit to help keep you looking your best during summer’s brightest days and warm long nights.

Usually I would do a post with a bunch of picture collages to show swatches of the makeup items, but since I don’t have much time to do that right now I only did the video and I did some swatches in the video. But I’ll still add all the item descriptions in this post in case you want more information on the products.

Here’s my video:



$ Note: all prices are in US dollars. $

bareMinerals – READY® Eyeshadow 2.0 in “The Inspiration” | 0.03 oz sample | 0.1 oz / $20

bareMinerals READY® Eyeshadow 2.0 provides vivid, pigment-packed color with seamless blendability that lasts up to 12 hours. Powered by the proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral™ Complex, it delivers skin-nourishing benefits including reduced appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness plus boosted moisture levels.

I always like getting makeup and these colours are definitely colours I would wear so I’m looking forward to trying them out. The light shade (pearly pink) is called Muse and the dark shade (plum) is called Passion.

derma e – BB Creme with SPF 25 in Light | 0.5 oz sample | 2 oz / $29.50

Instantly erase the look of imperfections and turn back the clock on aging skin. This multi-functional mineral beauty balm is an advanced skincare formula that also conceals with lightweight, color-correcting coverage. As a quick, easy, all-in-one skincare product, this BB Crème provides all-day hydration while softening and smoothing skin. Wear it alone, over serum, gel or moisturizer, or to replace foundation.


100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten free, GMO-free.

I love BB Creams so I’m looking forward to trying this one.

Pixi Beauty – Mini Tinted Brilliance Balm in “Unique Pink” | 1.8 g sample | 3 g / $20

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).

I love my tinted lippies and can never have enough – even though I already have too many! 🙂

POP Beauty – Sunkissed Bronzer in “Secret Sunshine” | full size! | $12 (this is a guess – the site says $0)

This radiance enhancing bronze glow delivers a soft honey beamed hue, adding warmth and a sun-kissed lift to your complexion. With added vitamin E.

Bronzers are new to me, but I’ll give this a try.

Pur~lisse – pur~protect essential daily moisturizer spf 30 | 0.5 oz sample | 1.7 oz / $55

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.

Sunscreen is always good to have.



And that’s my Glam Bag for July. The value comes to about $53 which I find pretty darn good!
