Ipsy Bag Review and Almost Weekend Recap

Hello Monday! I can't believe the weekend is over already - I spent Thursday through Sunday in West Virginia with my husbands family and the weekend flew by. We went on horse back rides, white water rafting, and I had no cell service so I completely left blogging behind for the weekend and took a break.

I am still waiting on some pictures from other family before I do a recap, but I wanted to come back today with my Ipsy bag review for the month of July!

My bag took forever getting here this time - I'm not sure why. But I was so excited to see it come, because the actual bag this month was so stinking cute. I think I liked it more than any products inside; but I loved those too!

July Ipsy Glam Bag Review
 
pur-lisse Sunscreen Review

Pur-lisse spf Sunscreen - I actually received the face lotion in this brand from a Birchbox last year, and was only mildly impressed with it. But I actually liked this sunscreen. It was a great consistency (not runny like previous spf samples) and didn't smell. And 30 spf is always a great level for my face. I feel like I could wear this under my makeup and wouldn't even know I had it on.

POP Bronzer Review

Pop! Bronzer - This product actually looked so great, but I will never be tan enough to use this. So I never used it. It seems like it got some good reviews on other sites, but I plan to give this to my sister to use. Do you have any experience with any other products of this brand? I would love to know what you think!

Derma E BB Cream Review

Derma E BB Creme - I was most impressed with this product out of the whole bunch! For a brand I have never heard of, this worked so great. It had zero smell, went on really smooth, and was really light and felt like I was wearing no make up at all. The shade looked dark out of the tube, but it was perfect for my light toned skin. This is something I will definitely be repurchasing in the future! (The color pictured is "light" )

Pixi Brilliance Balm Review

Pixi Tinted Balm - I love Pixi products, so I was excited to see this in my box. I was even more excited to see the shade. I am not a lipstick wearer, because my lips are so dry from my eczema and any color just looks dry and flakey. This shade is perfect because it gives a little pop, but looks more glossy than anything. And the sample size is perfect for my clutches!

Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 Review

Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 - I love anything Bare Minerals, and I knew this would be a bag favorite for me. The shade is "inspiration" . This shadow is supposed to last up to 12 hours, and I feel like it did. I had no creases, and these colors were so easy to blend together. I also loved the packaging, but I always do with this brand. I would highly recommend this in any shade, especially if you are looking for long wear!

  19. I have never tried Ipsy but they seem to have a great variety of products! I am also too pale for bronzer, but so many women look great with it applied! I am a huge fan of Bare Minerals and love this shade! I hope I can find it on their site! Susan

  24. The bag itself is adorable! I love the scalloping around it! And I've never tried any Pixi products! I'm curious about them now!

  25. I really like how you went through your products after you had tried them and knew enough to form an opinion - I find that much more helpful myself!
