Ipsy’s June bag took a while to reach Seattle! I received my email on the 10th and saw that it started in North Carolina and visited Hebron, KY, Compton, CA, and Auburn, WA. It finally reached Seattle on the 15th and finally reached me on the 17th. I have no idea what happened at/with DHL, but… that looked a little weird.
The bag itself is definitely interesting this month. I don’t yet know if I’ll keep it or give it to a friend, but… it’s definitely not a “boring” design.
NYX Mosaic Powder (Paradise) – Pretty! I like the container and what I can see of the product. I don’t normally wear blush so I’m likely to give it to a friend, but… maybe I’ll keep it. Haven’t decided yet. Just opened it a few minutes ago! The website looks fine… I would have just rather received a lip product from them. :)
Psssst!® The TRUE Original Dry Shampoo – I’m subscribed because I’m interested in new products, but… I don’t normally buy products on my own, so I’m actually happy to see a product that I’ve owned before! This was the first Dry Shampoo I tried several years ago, and I remember being a fan. Hope that’s still the case! Oh, and sample size (1.76oz) is good. Website looks fine. (WIN!!!)
Cailyn Cosmetics Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner with Brush Built-In (Purple) – I like what I see, but… it’s still eyeliner. I can’t get into eyeliner, so this is likely to become a gift… just like all the others I’ve received from Ipsy and Birchbox.
J.Cat Beauty Sparkling Cream Palette (Suzie) – I’ve seen a few confused reactions to this product on Ipsy, blogs, and YouTube, and… I’m in the same place. I’m not a teenager and I don’t go to clubs. I don’t know how I’m going to use this product, so… maybe I’ll find a teenager that wants it. (Note: They say it’s best to keep this product away from the eyes.)
Starlooks Lip Pencil (Tickle Me Pink) – The product looks good and it’s smooth, but… I don’t like how the color looks on me. Likely to give this one away.
I’ve watched a few videos and read a few blog posts about this bag, and… it looks like most people are excited about most of the products. I guess I’m not really surprised because I’m pretty sure I just don’t like make-up as much as many people seem to. I love that Ipsy added a new feedback survey for each item… I hope they start using the data/feedback right away! Maybe then I’ll get more products that I’m super excited about and won’t end up giving away most of the bag. ;) Too bad it starts with this set of products… I’d love to tell them how much I loved the products I got last month!
