It's that time again!!! Getting a little package in the mail every month is such a treat!! I was very impressed with the contents of my Glam Bag this month......let me show you what I got!!
As you can see, the items came in a bright neon pink clean tube-shaped bag. It's definitely not my favorite looking bag, but it's very appropriate for the Summer!
The first item I noticed was the BH Cosmetics "California Collection" eyeshadow palette trio. The purple shade is from the 'BH Hollywood' palette, the bronze/taupe shade is from the 'BH San Francisco' palette, and the yellow gold shade is from the 'BH Malibu' palette. They were so tricky!! They gave us a shade from three different palettes -- a pretty smart marketing scheme...since if we like a color, we'll obviously want to buy the whole palette it comes in.
I am a huge fan of purple eyeshadow on brown eyes, but from the swatch, the purple shade seemed to be a bit light in color-payoff. The San Francisco shade seems more of my style -- a shimmery neutral color. You can never go wrong with neutrals!! I can't wait to try out all three of these!
The other four items included in the Glam Bag were:
Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray
First of all...this spray bottle is HUGE!! This product alone makes this $10/month ipsy subscription worth it. I am always willing to try out beach sprays, even though my hair is straight (thanks to being half Japanese....thanks, mom). I couldn't wait and have used this beach spray twice in the past week. It smells like the beach. There's no question about that. I noticed that it actually did add a lot of texture and spunk to my hair. What a great sample product!
Pop Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon in Fuchsia Flirt
Lip products are my love! And easy crayons like this make life so much easier! This Fuchsia Flirt shade is actually more of a baby pink shade when I applied it to my lips....not so much fuchsia. It has a twist-up bottom, so you don't have to worry about bringing a pencil sharpener in your purse. So convenient! The crayon applies extremely smooth and is even shiny!
Let's all just take a moment of silence for this Benetint.
Okay. I have been wanting to purchase Benetint for YEARS! For some reason, every time I walk into ULTA or Sephora, I HAVE to try on Benetint....and yet I have never purchased it. Crazy, right?! Anyways, I was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ...O excited that this teeny tiny bottle of Benetint was in my bag this month. I practically squealed when I saw it! Benetint can be used on your cheeks as a blush, or on your lips as a very light lip stain. It has such a beautiful and yummy rose smell to it. It is to die for. It is worth all of the hype. I will be using it for my lips -- not so much for my cheeks -- for just a natural looking pink tint. Thank you, ipsy!!!
COOLA Mineral Sunscreen Tinted Moisturizer
This is the only product that I wasn't very excited about. I've heard of the COOLA brand before, because I've received a mini bottle of sunscreen in a previous box. This, however, is a tinted moisturizer. More intriguing, but just not as exciting. It claim to be 20 SPF and have environmental protection (whatever that means). Small samples like this are just not my cup of tea, but that won't stop me from trying it :) You never know....it could be amazing!
I hope you enjoyed seeing the contents of my July Glam Bag!
Do any of you have this same subscription?! Did you get the same items as me?!
