June 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

My current makeup subscription box is from Ipsy. I was a bit skeptical about a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box because I didn't want to end up with a bunch of products I couldn't use or didn't know how to use. Each month you get full size or deluxe-sized products in a cute makeup bag, and I was sold after checking out their previous bags. If you're not very adventurous with makeup like me, it's a great way to build your makeup collection on the cheap and expand your makeup expertise!

The June 2017 glam bag theme is Volume Up and I'm so in love with the bag design. I plan on using this bag to keep my lippies organized :) but I must say that this is the first time in a long time that I'm so disappointed with what I got :(

In my bag:

Margaret Dabbs treatment nail polish

City Color Cosmetics eyebrow powder
theBalm Cosmetics powder blush
Doucce mascara
Delectable coconut & cream body lotion

While I always appreciate lotions (especially Delectable!) I was very underwhelmed with everything else. I rate the June Ipsy Glam Bag a reluctant 2/5.

More about the products inside:

Margaret Dabbs treatment nail polish- I wish there was an option to tell Ipsy that I already have strong nails and I certainly don't need a treatment nail polish. I'd also like to tell Ipsy that I don't fancy turquoise. UGH! I'm sure I'll give this a go one day but for now I'm not impressed. I can't comment on if this actually works but it does look promising. Sorry guys 😕

City Color Cosmetics eyebrow powder- Full disclosure, I'm a bit of a Benefit snob when it comes to brow products...more specifically a Benefit KaBrow fiend. I could talk all day about what I love about Benefit products but I'll save that for another day *hehehehe!* I tried so hard to find something I liked about this City Colour powder, but I couldn't for the life of me lie to you like that. I needed to use so much of this powder for it to show up and it doesn't have the lasting power that I'm used to. I'm sure this might work for someone looking for barely there brow makeup, but if you're looking for proper pigmentation and brows that last then this product isn't for you. 

theBalm Cosmetics powder blush- I do love a good blush but I've gotten so many from Ipsy over the past year. I rate this blush as "just ok". I do like the formula and pigment of theBalm products. They're also fantastic for popping in my travel bag or purse :) I really like that this blush can also double as an eyeshadow...BONUS!

Doucce mascara- Again...I'm not sure why Ipsy keeps sending me things I don't need, but I've gotten so many mascaras I can't use them or give them away fast enough. I was happy to note that this mascara didn't smell like plastic and the brush was higher quality than some of the other mascaras I got from Ipsy. 

Delectable coconut & cream body lotion- Finally a product I'm happy with! I love love love this lotion so much! I'm always a fan of coconut oil and shea butter and this lotion has a heavy dose of skin nourishing goodness! It's perfect for summer and I recommend this lotion for anyone looking for a light and fast absorbing summer fave :)

I can't wait to see what Ipsy has to offer next month and I'm hoping a redemption is in the cards since this month was a bit of a dud. What did you get in your June Glam Bag? I'd love to hear from you!
