June Ipsy Glam Bag - Giveaway Details!

Happy Monday lovelies! I was pretty excited for this week to start since it was just a 2 shift work week for me, so after tonight I have a week off to help my sis with the wedding and to celebrate, eek! 
I was pretty excited to see my June Ipsy Glam Bag in the mail, because all the products are great!! You're going to love what was in the month's bag - such great brands so I was super excited to try them all! Plus - I have some other exciting things to tell you!
June Ipsy Glam Bag Review
NYX Butter Gloss Review - Ipsy Glam Bag
How cute was this month's bag?! Love the tropical print. I know I can look at it this winter and it will give me that Florida feel! 
NYX Butter Gloss - I was dying to try this stuff anyway, and I love this brand! The color is a touch brighter than what I would have picked out for myself, but it's great to try the product to see if I will like it. I can always go pick a new shade. I love the glossy look of this!
Be A Bombshell Mascara Review - Ipsy Glam Bag
You have NO idea how excited I was to see this in my bag! I have heard nothing but awesome things about this stuff on a ton of blogs!
Be a Bombshell Mascara - I really like how this goes on and the finishing look that it gives. I am still just a touch partial to the Buxom that I use, but I think that's because I have used it for so long I know how to use it best. The only weird thing about this was it has a slight smell to it, which I found odd. Not a good smell and not a really bad smell so not a deal breaker. Who are we kidding - I smell way worse than that at my job at the hospital :) Overall, I am so happy with this brand!
Jesse's Girl Eyeliner Review - Ipsy Glam Bag
Jessie's Girl Eyeliner - This was another product that looked pretty awesome. Until I took off the lid. Eyeliner EVERYWHERE! I kid you not this was leaking stuff all over the place. It may be how it was handled in the mail, but still - what if I wanted to pack this on vacation?! Would it spill all over everywhere? So I have yet to actually try this product, as I am waiting for it to dry up a bit. But the packaging so far is deterring me from really wanting to because I am afraid of the mess. However, the tip does look like it would be very precise.
Laneige BB Cushion Review - Ipsy Glam Bag
This product really intrigued me, and I was super glad to try it out on Sunday.
Laneige BB Cushion - I actually love the packaging of this. With so many BB creams out there that I have tried, I feel like the best way to apply it is with your fingers - which I hate doing. This makes it super east to apply, and the applicator worked great. It was really soft and went on even. This truly is a BB cream - it doesn't give as full coverage as regular foundation. Some days, that's what I want. Laneige is actually a new brand at Target I found out with some research. It looks pretty interesting, and I can definitely see myself trying some things from there line!
