What is ipsy?
Each month, subscribers will receive a beautiful Glam Bag with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Members can watch and play along with the stylists with the same products that they are using. All for only $10 a month. (From ipsy's site.)
This month the theme was "Beach Beauty" and the bag included items that would help us get ready for the beach.
I apologize for the photos you are about to see. They looked better on my phone's screen than they do now... but whatever.
The bag was adorable this month!

- Pop Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon in Coral Crush. Full size. 6 crayons for $25 if you buy it from Pop Beauty's website. Estimated value: $4.17
I was excited to get this product, but I'm kind of disappointed with it. This coral color is really wrong for me, and the product gets patchy after not too long and makes my lips flaky. I haven't decided yet if I want to keep it or see if one of my sisters want it.
- Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray Conditioning and Texturizing Spray. Travel size. $2.70 if you by it from Amazon.
I used this for the first time today. The smell reminded me of a hotel I've stayed at. I can't remember exactly which hotel, but I want to say it was Venetian in Vegas. This spray is supposed to give your hair texture, like the texture you'd get from playing in salty beach water and then letting your hair air dry. To be honest, my hair dries like that anyway, and using this instead of letting my hair dry without product actually tamed my hair down a little bit so it wasn't quite as wavy and wild. I am absolutely in love with the bottle! The spray nozzle is very high quality, and I honestly can't wait to reuse it for something else that is yet to be determined (but mostly likely water, since that's what I use to style Lily's hair).
- Coola Mineral Face SPF 20 Unscented Moisturizer. Trial size. Full size is $36 on Coola's site. Estimated value: $4.87
This sample is teeny tiny. I use a lot of sunscreen every single day: I cover my face, neck and chest in it because I'm embracing my porcelain skin and trying to keep it healthy. I used this once, and I probably only have enough to use it once more. I didn't notice anything super special about it.
- BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Sample. Complete collections are $8.95 on BH Cosmetics' site. Estimated value: $2.94
|I swatched them on the inside of my arm.|
- Nailtini Straight Up Nail Lacquer in Mai Tai. Full size. $13 if you buy it from Tini Beauty's website.
|This is Emilee's hand modeling the polish. :)|
Overall this bag was a good bag, just the coral/orange color of the lip crayon and the nail polish were misses. I'm a little sad I didn't get Benetint, but I'll get over it. I'm already looking forward to the next bag! I wonder when the first sneak peek will be...
Total value of ipsy bag: $27.68
Not as good as last month, but good enough to continue my subscription. Besides, it's fun getting new things in the mail to try.
