Ipsy June 2016 review

I *love* the envelope mailer. Of course I’m thrilled that I got a graphic envelope! The Ipsy theme for June is “Rebel Rebel. ”

Everything in my bag for June!

Sephora FORMULA X Nail Polish in Wingwoman ($3.50) A bright, bold, almost red pink. I’m afraid we probably won’t see too much more of Sephora in ipsy now that Sephora Play is rolling, so it was nice to see this polish mini!

Crown Brush 3 Tone Bronzer ($3.60) A bronzer, blush and highlighter (swatched below) – I thought this size palette was just too small to make this combo effective. Ipsy suggests swirling them all together, which is what you pretty much have to do. It’s pretty but does contain talc, so it went in “the pile.”

clariSEA Deep Pore Detox Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Mask ($3.81) I like this brand and this is a cool product, combining Activated Bamboo Charcoal, Kaolin Clay and Calendula to help draw out impurities and soothe your face at the same time! I do wish it actually wasn’t a powder, but that also means it won’t go bad.

theBalm Cosmetics Meet Matt(e) Trimony Eyeshadow in Matt Kumar  ($1) It actually took me too long to get the name – Matt(e) Trimony = Matrimony.

I’m not very good with dark matte shadows, but a small sample like this gives me a chance to play and have some fun with it without buying a whole palette or pan. Of course the Balm’s shadows are always great!Ipsy June 2016 (7)

Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Pout Potion in Secret ($14) This is marked as a shimmer gloss on BAB’s site, and it’s clearly not shimmery. I can’t ever get pumped up over another BAB item. It’s fine but not really exciting when there are so many other fantastic brands that you can try that don’t appear exclusively in subscription boxes. (Has anyone ever seen Be A Bombshell for sale… ANYWHERE?!).

I… didn’t really like my bag all that much – except for the awesome graffiti pouch. It was really kind of blah and the value wasn’t there this month – about $26. That’s probably the lowest value ipsy bag that I’ve ever received.

    Got exactly the same things you did. Since I actively dislike lip gloss, and also since I cannot wear pink lip color, that item is worthless to me. I like the eyeshadow (and particularly like that it isn’t another beige one). Glad the polish is a mini since it’s so similar to the red that was in the Serendipity box. As you said, the size of the 3-tone bronzer makes it a bit difficult to do much experimenting with. You pretty much have to swirl it together or else use a tiny brush to get a single color. The mask stuff is new to me and something interesting to play with.

    Things I got with points in this package: BioRepublic Cucumber Breeze Soothing Fiber Mask, Ice Water EYES by ToGoSpa, Elizabeth Grant Vitamin C Hydrating Cleanser, City Color Highlight Trio palette, Mellow Matte Lipstick in Electro (which unfortunately arrived broken with most of the lipstick stuck up inside the lid), and Clarisea Sea Salt Solutions Mattifying Healing Dust that seems to go with the mask in the bag.

    Don’t care for the graffiti bag myself but then I’m legitimately old and consider graffiti to be vandalism.
