June Ipsy Bag

June was a good Ipsy month! This month was called Pretty In Paradise! As always the items come in a use again pouch and this months was designed by Rebecca Minkoff.  It's so perfect to take to Hawaii. Out of the products that came inside,I got some products I can use now and a few I can save for later. I love that!
Now for the actual products...
 
I had never heard of this when I pulled it out of my bag. I mean I'd heard of the singer Marc Anthony but not this spray. I have yet to try it but I'm packing it for Hawaii because I think it's going to be great there since my hair will be wet most of the day and I'll need it dry in the evenings.
I have green eyes so for me to get the Nicka K Eyeliner in green, I was pretty excited. I also try to do my eye make-up in a different color other than green but to have the eyeliner in green works! This eyeliner has a built in glitter that makes it shimmer. I've used it once so far and it goes on smooth. The eyeliner is a liquid so I've got to get better at practicing it.
This was probably the one item that I wasn't too thrilled about getting. I have very sensitive lips and rarely use a gloss, lipstick or tint on them. I love the NYX brand but this gloss won't get used for a long time or I'll gift it to someone else who will actually use it.

This is a cover up/sunscreen! It makes your skin feel moisturized, look even, cover up imperfections and protect your skin from the sun. I'm saving this gem for Hawaii evenings. It came in three different shades so the darker I get, the more I can keep using this product. I'll have three options and I'll be able to keep picking a darker shade. If the sun dries my skin out this will help moisturize it in the evenings.
 
This brand is amazing. When I saw that it was included in my June bag I smiled. I've used this before but the full size bottles seem a little pricey to me. Since I'm going to Hawaii, I'm saving this sunscreen sample to take to the beach. It won't be a giant bottle that I'm lugging down to the sand. This will also be a good bottle to take on excursions and hiking.

That was my June bag! Are you an Ipsy subscriber? What did you get in your bag? I was hoping to get the new Bombshell mascara but sadly I did not. I had just bought the new Loreal Manga Mascara so it worked out that I didn't get it. I would have just had to wait to use it. I'm weird like that. I won't open up two mascaras at the same time.

Ugh, I need to get on the Ipsy bandwagon, I get jealous every time I see these online!

My two main hits from June's Ipsy was the pouch itself and NYX lip butter. Loved the color! I was also wondering if you've heard of Vain Pursuits? I think they're doing smthg similar to ipsy but for skincare?

Oh! I've been hearing a lot about Vain Pursuits as well but have yet to try their products. I wanted to read up on some reviews first!

I do love me some Ipsy though. Am I the only one who actually liked June's?
