Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription – get five makeup, beauty, skincare, and haircare items in a cute bag for $10 a month! It’s the most popular subscription box and a great way to sample new colors and beauty brands.

Gudetama is Sanrio’s egg mascot – he’s lazy, maybe depressed, definitely experiencing ennui. I’m sure we can all relate to him in some form or another – and that’s why he’s so popular!

The theme this July is Over Easy. Perfect.

Everything in my July bag. There are many bag variations every month for ipsy –  log in to your account to check out how-to videos and tips for your products. They’ve also started emailing out product information and tips from their influencers!

Ahava Active Dead Sea Minerals Dead Sea Water Mineral Hand Cream ($6)  This is a great mineral-enriched handcream with a lovely scent! I find it incredibly soothing and am always super excited to receive it in a box. It’s deeply hydrating and I just like it.

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Gel Cleanser ($1.25) This is a nice gentle cleanser that also removes your makeup without drying out your skin. It’s imbued with Tarte’s “Rainforest of the Sea complex: “a proprietary blend of algae and marine flower extracts that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while smoothing and softening skin.” And it’s vegan!

trèStiQue Mini Concealer Crayon in Bisque ($10) I like this brand (even with the weird mind-bending cap that looks like your product is open) and I’m thrilled to get an on-the-go concealer! It blends well and was a pretty good color for my summer skin. I liked the light gel formula!

Beau Gachis Illuminator Brush ($9.95) This little beauty is perfect for applying all those highlighters and illuminators! It’s precise as far as larger areas go and picks up just the right amount of product so you can build instead of overdo.

Ciaté  Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Eyeliner In Black ($10) This double ended liner is perfect for applying and then smudging with the included blending brush!

This liner is cream, but stays put once it sets. I’m really happy with the gel-kohl formula! It stays a long time and you can do sharp to smudged with the same formula. Win!

I got about $37 in value in my ipsy bag this month and I really enjoyed everything I received! Everything was indeed easy – and with enough product to last me quite a while. I got 2 new product discoveries too sent straight to my door, in the most adorable glam bag Ipsy has ever done! So “Gude”!

What did you get in your Ipsy this month?

    I also really enjoyed the hand cream and the brush! The brush packs on more highlighter than the Luxie brush I use, and that makes it great for my very subtle highlighters. The lotion smells so clean. It isn’t my usual fragrance, but I really like it!

      You can download the Ipsy app, it tracks your bag. Or use their website and email Ipsycare. 🙂

      I thought this month’s bag design was cute, but mine smelled SO strongly I had to get rid of it. Made me sad.

    I got the gold bag & that cash back offer! I didn’t even realise this wasn’t added to everyone’s sub.

    I love the Trestique highlighter. I got one in a lighter shade from another sub & used it last month. Worked really, really well. Plus it’s small so I can take it everywhere.

    Mine came in a yellow metallic mailing bag instead of the pink one! It was cute

    • Brandy

      !!! That’s so neat! I just scrolled through Instagram and it took me 10 pages to find just one, so it really must be a small percentage of bags. I think that’s adorable!

      • gonesmithing@gmail.com'

        I had assumed that everyone got a gold bag! So I wonder why some people got it and some didn’t?

        • Brandy

          Because you’re special!! It’s probably an inventory thing (I mean they have to have an entire warehouse to just store the pink bags right?) but what a fun surprise!

            Actually people who reveiced a golden bag get exklusice access to their new cash back shop and 5$ off their first purchase 🙂
