June 2016 Ipsy Unbagging


I want to just start off by saying that I am not too into this months bag. The bag itself is a graffiti style, and is just too busy for me. Just going to give it to a younger family member. Probably my sister, who is 8. Because that is the age range it makes me personally think of. If you are into that stuff, more power to ya, want this makeup bag, haha?

The Contents:

Bio Republic Sheet Masks: I hate sheet masks. I am not even going to go into these. I will be passing these a long.

Formula X Nail Polish in “Wing Woman”: The name is cute and the color is a pretty red shade. But I do not like this brand, haven’t had good experiences with it. I also do not like the little polish sizes. Looks like Aden is getting another thing.

Hey Honey Day and Night Cream: As mentioned before I am on the look out for a good cruelty free face cream. Maybe this one will be it.

Seraphine Botanicals Happy Hibiscus Blush: I am excited to try this.  It is CF, Vegan, and Non- GMO. I will be reviewing this soon!

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Pan in “FireBall”: When I saw this was in my bag I was super excited. It is beautiful and I can not wait to try it out for ya’ll. Did the pan feel a bit small to anyone else?

What did you get in your Ipsy bag!?

Sephora ( inside JC Penny) It’s a Perfect 10 Set 2015( more like a many products mini review!)

Though this specific kit can no longer be purchased itself, the products included inside the kit can. Therefore, I decided it was worth while to review its contents and do a simple look with them and see how much lasting power they have as a whole! So, continue reading if you are interested in my take on the 10 products included in this nifty little kit!


As you can probably see from the image above there are some pretty awesome products included in this kit. BUT sense, as I stated before, this kit is no longer available (unless some lucky person can find it on Ebay) take this as a product by product review. Let’s get started.


The first product I pulled out of the kit was the Original Beauty Blender. I don’t want to spend too much time on this product, because we all know it is a tried and true way to do many steps of your makeup routine. It’s safe to say I love this product and was glad to receive it.

Price: $20 at sephora

( Amazon links are included because of my affiliate account and because there are usually great deals. I will ALWAYS be honest of how I feel about a product, no matter what!)


This perfume (Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black)  was the main reason I purchased the kit. I absolutely love it! With its notes of sandalwood, violet, and vanilla; this perfume gives off a really warm, sexy scent.

Price: Roller ball at Sephora is $22


Does the Urban Decay all nighter makeup setting spray really need another review? No, but I am doing one anyway! I love this product, I have gone through a few full sizes of this sucker and was very pleased to receive a travel size of it within this kit. Travel size setting sprays come in handy much more than you would think in a 20 year old woman’s life!

Price: Travel size: $14; Full size: $30

I was not very fond of the Makeup Forever primer that was included. It didn’t actually do much as a primer and acted more as a moisturizer, which I should have expected because of the name. There are a few other formulations of this primer ( only at Sephora) that I am willing to try, but this one just was not meant for me, which is surprising, sense my skin tends to be very dry. I would also like to mention that this sample literally had one use in it. How can you truly judge a product with only one use Sephora?!
