hello everyone! i hope everyone is enjoying their summer thus far. how beautiful it is in my part of Canada today.. i've been going on many-a bike rides lately. :) :)
anyways- today i happily received my monthly 'ipsy glam bag' in the mail in it's lovely shiny fuschia pink package! how i always look forward to that every month. theres something so thrilling about not knowing what you'll receive. makes me feel like a kid again when you'd get treat bags from your chummies birthday party.
i am actually SUPER excited about what was sent this month.. so many amazing products. this is what i wanted from glossybox, but since that has discontinued, ipsy has been an amazing replacement.
in the july glam bag i received six items (including the make-up bag)...
- 'bene-tint' by benefit rose tinted lip and cheek stain - SAMPLE
- 'coola' mineral sunscreen tinted moisturizer - SAMPLE
- 'healthy sexy hair' soy renewal beach spray - SAMPLE
- 'pop beauty' pouty pop crayon, shade = "coral crush" - FULL SIZE
- 'california collection' eyeshadow trio by bh cosmetics, shade = "hollywood," "san fransisco," & "malibu" - SAMPLE
"bene-tint" benefit rose-tinted cheek and lip stain
when i swatched this on my hand i think that i instantly loved it. it smells like roses (i know some people aren't a fan of rose scented things, but it smells so pretty). and the colour turns out so natural! i have another cheek and lip stain, but its a very intense pink whereas this particular one is great for an every day natural look. i have a little obsession with rose coloured lip products, and this is entirely up my alley.
"California Collection" by bhcosmetics eyeshadow trio
i have heard a lot of amazing things about bhcosmetics and just haven't taken the time to purchase anything from their website. these shades are absolutely gorgeous. i think they'd look so pretty together in more of a sultry smokey eye. i always use gold tones on my eyes, so naturally i'd love these. this is such a great little sample pack to throw in your make-up bag for travelling when you need to pack lightly.
in order = "malibu, san fransisco, hollywood"
i am very ecstatic about this ipsy glam bag and i CANNOT wait to try all of these products out!
