(FYI – Just like Birchbox, Ipsy sends out many different variations of their bag each month – so my review is just one of the bag variations you might receive!)

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Ipsy Review – June 2015 Pure

dr. brandt pores no more blackhead extractor mask – .25 oz Value $11.25

This mask is free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, etc. and you only have to leave it on for 5-10 minutes! I’ve used it before and liked the results, so I’m happy to have more.

Pure Brazilian Miracle Leave-In Conditioner – 1 oz Value $6

I just tried this out on dry hair (the instructions recommend towel-dried hair), and so far I like the formula. It’s very lightweight, and the scent is pleasant.

Ipsy Review – June 2015 Primer

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer – .25 oz Value $8

Thanks to subscription boxes, I never need to buy primers. This is another product I’ve tried before and really like – the formula is lightweight and the finish is smooth.

tresStique Mini Shadow Crayon in Aspen Pine – Value $10

When I first opened my bag, I thought this eyeshadow crayon was missing its cap! (The pencil-looking top is the actual cap). This is my favorite discovery in the bag. The formula is super pigmented, and it goes on so smoothly. (Swatch below). Plus it is free of parabens and synthetic fragrances!

Ipsy Review – June 2015 Lip

Shea Moisture Lip Crayon in Sarah – FULL SIZE! Value $10

I’ve sampled Shea Moisture products before, but I didn’t know they had a makeup line! I like this lip crayon, and I might buy it in another shade. This Sarah color is a pretty bold fuschia with some shimmer:

Ipsy Review – June 2015 Swatch

Verdict: I’m really happy with my Ipsy bag this month. The items total to about $45 in retail value, and the sizes of all the products included are great. What did you get in your June Ipsy glam bag? Did anyone else get fooled by the eye crayon cap?

  1. Ipsy has sent me Too Faced melted lipstick before and I absolutely hate it lol so I am sooooo glad I didn’t get another one.

  2. I love my bag. I got the Smashbox primer,Formula X nail polish in bright pink,full size IT cosmetics eyebrow pencil in taupe,a cucumber face mask and the eye shadow crayon in pink pearl. I also got Skyn Iceland eye patches that I used my points for. I will use everything and love love love the nail polish and eye shadow colors. The cucumber face mask feels amazing at the end of a hot Summer day. I can always use primer and I love the Smashbox brand. IT cosmetics is a new to me brand so I’m happy to try it. Great Ipsy bag!

    • The IT Cosmetics brow pencil is a deluxe sample size, not full size.

  3. It is annoying when people complain so much about there ipsy bags.
    It is only $10 a month. They have over one million customers and can’t cater perfectly to everyone’s profile. I never like all of my items but that’s okay. People love getting makeup samples as gifts!

    Anyway I received the primer, eye shadow stick in dark brown, eyebrow pencil, formula x polish, and cucumber face mask. I’m especially excited about the primer, mask, and polish. Peace and love to all. 🙂

  4. Totally fooled by the cap on the crayon and sincerely disappointed that I did not get th too faced lipstick. 🙁 I would much rather get just make up in my boxes and I totally wish that was an option! I love the primer too but overall I wasn’t too excited about this month. Hopefully my boxycharm will lift my spirits!

  5. I totally thought mine was missing the cap too. Lol

  6. i got the dr. Brandt pores no more…smashbox photo finish….tresStique in gold i liked it, but it is light it says it’s buildable but it would take a lot…keratherapy..i like this too i really like the smell of it and it makes your hair really soft without being weighed down…and then there is the j cat i tried all sorts of ways to make this look good on me and it just isn’t happening it looks like a very bright orange on me that my face, mind, eyes, and husband doesn’t like lol

    • i did like the bag though … i thought it was simple but cute..

  7. I received the Smashbox primer, cucumber mask, Formula X nail polish in Power Source which is described as a hot coral on Sephoras website, tre’Stique shadow crayon in Pink Pearl, and a purple eyelash curler.

    I have the primer in full size, so I might give this to my daughter. The mask seems okay and I’ll use it. The nail polish isn’t a color I would ever use, its going to the womens shelter. The shadow crayon is so close to my skin tone that you can’t see it, I too thought the cap was missing. Ipsy gave us the faulty eyelash curler in February, I lost a few eyelashes with that, no plans to use this on my poor lashes.

    Not really happy with this months bag.

  8. I love my bag. I was about to cancel and then I got this. It’s all the same as liz’s but instead of her hair product, I got 3 bio republic face masks which I love! Plus the two full size items (lip crayon and eye shadow crayon), I’m super excited to try the dr. brandt pore mask,and the smashbox primer. The value was incredible and I love the bag, it’s a neat foam feeling squishy thing. Super bright orange makes it easy to find in my bag! Thanks ipsy!

  9. I was a tad dissapointed with this months bag.the bag itself is feels like some kind of wetsuit material.i recieved the lip stain which is a no go for me so ill be gifting that one.the TreStique Eyeshadow Crayon,the keratherapy,dr brandt mask and the primer.I gave the hair smoother to my twin because i know i wont use it.she got the lavanilla body butter which she let me try and i absolutely loved it.i will be buying that for myself and my mom.i pretty much will only use the primer from this months bag.the rest i will give to friends who cant afford the splurge.

  10. I really liked my bag this month, the value was like $70!!
    I got $40 vitamin c serum,
    Pink lip stain
    Face primer
    The same eyeshadow crayon but in pearl and something else. Was great!

  11. I really liked my bag! I like having a neutral plain bag for travel or my work tote full of all the crap I need each day to survive. 🙂
    My products were okay, I got the Smashbox primer, which I am excited to use. J. Cat lip stain which is eh… not bad, not great, not really my color but I’m trying to be bolder. Keratherapy hair smoother which is amazing. Tre-stique mini shadow crayon in gold which looks great. And the Dr. Brant mask which didn’t seem to do much, but I like trying new masks.
    Overall I would say this bag is okay. I feel like it is worth my $10, but def not my favorite. I do want to know what profiles people have to get all the makeup products!! But I like skincare as well and my birchbox is all skincare! I’m excited about July’s birchbox sample choice!!

  12. I got the Too Faced Melted lipstick and
    IT brow power pencil and brush in taupe (I have black/dark brown Asian hair color). I would love to trade for dry shampoo . If interested email me at

  13. I didn’t like this months ipsy at all. My ipsy profile stylist is Michelle. I don’t usually wear make up and I got mostly make up this month, how aggravating.
    I received:
    Too Faced Melted lipstick
    IT brow power pencil and brush in taupe (I have black/dark brown Asian hair color)
    Aurora BlackBerry eyeliner
    Shadow crayon in gold
    3 face masks from BioRepublic

    • I also have very dark hair and eyebrows, and the IT pencil in taupe actually works amazingly well. I was hesitant to even try it, but it says it works for all hair colors – and it does!!! It looks darker when applied, I think it reflects the pigment, and looks more natural than any other pencil I have tried. I use it every day now just to even out a few spots, and even though I have naturally dark, thick brows I love it!!!

    • Adeline, I’d be happy to swap with you for the IT Cosmetics brow pencil or the Too Faced! It’s funny how different people’s tastes are. Your bag sounds fantastic to me!

      I received the Kona Coffee eye pencil, Smashbox primer, Formula X polish (which has been swatched), OFRA Cosmetics turquoise eyeliner (also swatched), and the LaVanila lotion – it smells fantastic but was not very full to begin with. Email me at if you are interested. 🙂

    • If you would like to trade your Too Faced Melted lipstick, I’ve got multiple skin care products (not from this month, just multiple things ive collected throught subscriptions etc )I could trade for it. If interested email me at

  14. I was dying to try the Too Faced Melted….so of course I got the smash box primer. It is so teeny. Meh.

    I got a J.Cat lip stain. I don’t like that brand, and have said so every time they send it to me. I tried the product just for the heck of it, and I don’t like it at all. It has a weird flowery scent, and has one of those “minty” feeling “burn” type feelings. It is going in the garbage.

    I got the Dr Brandt pores no more, which is fine, but Ipsy has sent it to me before.

    I got a hair product that I haven’t seen anyone mention yet. Keratherapy daily smoothing cream. I’m glad to have this to play with. It’s a blow dry treatment.

    My last item is the treStique pencil thingie in “Venetian gold”. I like the formula a lot, but the color isn’t me.

    Usually Ipsy nails me, but this month was a disappointment. I struck out with glossybox too, so I am 0 for 2 so far this month. Pleeeeease Birchbox, be a good one! 🙂

    • I got the same exact bag and cancelled my subscription. I am happy to have recieved the Karatherapy but won’t really use anything else. I have no idea how anyone can like the J. Cat lip products. I see so many rave reviews on youtube etc and don’t understand. That stuff stays completely slippery and wet and gets all over my teeth (never had this problem ever before), face etc. Sad clown. Literally.

    • I was seriously wondering why my ipsy bags were not for me and then all of a sudden I got one great bag a couple months ago! April. Even the bag was so me. I stopped changing my profile after that and have had better (not perfect) bags since. Maybe it takes a while to start getting better-for-you bags. I still don’t love everything, but I’m enjoying trying them out. Keep reviewing everything and updating your profile until the bags start being more you. Hopefully that will help in time.

  15. I actually cancelled my ipsy subscription in a fit after seeing what was in it. I got the cucumber mask, the rose exfoliating gel, the lip stain, the smashbox primer, and the pink trestique. I’m overloaded with skin care items from birchbox, and I have the two subscriptions so I can get mostly makeup from ipsy, and everything else from birchbox.

    – Smashbox is a great brand, but I don’t wear foundation, just a tinted moisturizer or BB cream occasionally – giveaway.
    – The smell of the rose gel SMOTHERED me as soon as I opened the pink mailer, and immediately listed it for swapping.
    – The cucumber face mask is boring but I will likely use it.

    But that lip stain. Terrible. It definitely works, because it took me 5 minutes of scrubbing to get the SWATCH off! If the color had been anything but neon coral it might have been fine… I don’t want to look like a clownfish.

    The only thing I’m liking is the trestique because I got the pink pearl color, which is wearable (but not super noticeable) – although a color dupe of about 6 other different things I have.

    I do have to say that I did the exact same thing with the eyeshadow stick cap – I tried drawing everywhere on my arm with the lid, and got SUPER annoyed when I thought the only thing I was kind of liking was dried out! Then I felt silly when I realized what I did wrong, haha.

  16. I was thrilled this month. A full sized lip stain in a gorgeous coral color, an eyeshadow mini crayon in brown (large enough to get several wears), sample of Smashbox primer, microdermabrasion cream, and something else that I can’t remember. Worth $10 to me!

  17. I love your reviews as always.. I received a trio of masks; the smashbox primer; the same eye crayon; the Derme scrub; and the IT cosmetics eye brow pencil. I have received the primer from various subs and also own the travel size (larger version). I was most excited about the brow product and then probably the Derme since I own a few products and love the line.

  18. I LOVED this months bag…i got a trio of face masks, the dr. brandt mask (i love masks, so getting 4 in one box was not a deterrent) , the smashbox (i have a million primers, but i’m a regifter of things i don’t use), the eye shadow in a nice nude golden shimmer, and the j. cat lip stain which i’m definitely giving away as it was not the right shade of pink for my brown skin. Regardless, that was 7 items in 1 bag!

  19. This month I’m not happy with my “only samples” box no even one full size! 🙁
    – Gentle exfoliating gel 0.50oz
    -Smashbox foundation primer 0.25oz
    -Formula X nail color 0.13FlOz
    -Befine cucumber facial mask 1oz
    -TreStique Mini shadow crayon
    🙁 🙁 🙁 saaaaad

    • I had the same bag as you. I think they put branding in front of quantity this month.

  20. I hate complaining about subscription boxes. The reason I subscribe is to try new things but, because of the way Ipsy advertized this bag, one of the things I was excited to try was a Too Faced Melted. I’ve only read a few reviews from people that actually received that. I try not to look at spoilers but Ipsy even sent me an email that said, “see what’s in your bag” & the Too Faced Melted was pictured. Having my heart set on that meant that I was disappointed and my review may be a little tainted because of that.
    Here’s what I got:

    J. Cat Lipstain- No thanks. I am not a fan of J. Cat.
    Derma E Microdermabrasion scrub – I’m happy to try that. I love scrubs.
    Smashbox PhotoFinish Primer- Not only do I own the full size (I understand Ipsy doesn’t know that) BUT this is the second time they’ve sent me this sample. Eh.
    Be Fine Cucumber Facial Mask- I also love masks so I’m okay with this.
    TreStique Mini Eyeshadow Crayon- (Same thing…I thought the cap was off) It is basically my exact skin tone with a sheen. Not sure how much use I will get out of this. I wasn’t impressed by the swatch.
    Bag- I DO NOT like this bag, it feels and looks cheap.

    This is probably my least favorite Ipsy bag ever. Unless the J. Cat is full sized I didn’t get anything full size. I have reviewed the J. Cat several times and said I didn’t like the brand. What gives?

    At least I don’t feel alone. I’m not seeing a whole lot of people who were satisfied this month.

    • I own the smashbox primer already so I was hoping for the Too Faced as well (The spoiler said everyone would receive either the smashbox or the too faced) this month.

  21. I actually cancelled my Ipsy subscription after this month. I’m getting too many eye makeup products when I don’t wear shadow and rarely liner. While the value is there, I’m not happy with the products I’ve received.

    The only thing I was happy with getting, this month, was the Smashbox primer.

  22. This months bag makes me want to resubscribe to Ipsy! 🙁 they seem to finally be getting back on track. Thanks for the review Liz 🙂

  23. Uhg, got my bag two days ago and this was the biggest Ipsy disappointment I’ve had in the two years I’ve been a subscriber. I got:
    -The brow powder pencil, which would’ve been cool except I’m a red head and the color was 100% wrong
    -La Vanilla lotion, which would’ve been cool except it’s 1/4 full and I had to roll the tube to get any out
    -Smashbox primer–uhg, I have a million of these little guys
    -The mini eyeshadow crayon in the most boring, awful, flat brown ever. I put it on and my eyes were like WHYYYYY THIS IS HIDEOUS TAKE IT OFF
    -A J Cat Beauty lip stain, which was a super pretty color but the formula does NOT agree with me and gave me a cold sore within an hour of putting it on

    I’m not cancelling Ipsy or anything, but man did this month suck buns.

    • I got the same bag as you, this bag was by far one of my best Ipsy bags lol. I loved the Lavanilla lotion, but agree it’s nearly half gone which sucks. It smells wonderful. I love the IT brow pencil it’s amazing, but I have light brown hair. I too have a ton of the smashbox primer, but I like it alright. I hated the J.Cat lipstain, it’s a terrible color for me, it transfers to everything it’s not a traditional lip stain that dries matte. The little eye shadow crayon was ok, don’t hate the color but yes seems very flat.

      • my lotion was half empty too so i sent ipsy and email and they are sending me a new lotion free!

  24. I got this exact bag and am very happy with it! The shade of the lip crayon isn’t for me, but I love the bag itself and everything in it.

    I thought the shadow crayon was exposed without a cap too hahah. Happier with this bag than I have been in awhile 🙂

    • What are your settings on your survey? I would love this bag but I keep getting stuff I do not want. I am about to give up.

  25. I loved the contents of my bag, but I wasn’t a fan of the bag itself. Oh well, I have a pretty good collection of cute Ipsy bags as it is. 🙂

  26. I received the same eye crayon, and like many others when I initially saw it I was thinking “noooo…oh wait well that’s cool” I also received the cucumber mask aka death mask…I had to get my husband to pull the mask out of the bag and away from me because I am deathly allergic…so that was a fun moment. I received the rose facial scrub which the scent reminds me of my grandmothers poppouri. I also received the coral nail polish and the smash box facial primer!
    By far the miss with me is the cucumber mask…hopefully someone will trade and I can get that death trap outta my house ☺️

  27. I got similar items, with the exception of the lip crayon. I got nail polish instead, but I like the color they sent.

  28. Oh and if anyone is swapping the Shea lip crayon let me know 🙂

  29. I liked my bag overall. I got a really pretty blue nail polish but the weird thing is that the bristles of the brush are literally cut so that only 1/2 of them are there. I can’t even use the brush what the heck Ipsy?????

  30. This is my second Ipsy bag.

    – Smashbox primer. I actually bought one of the TF melted lipsticks yesterday at Sephora. 😛
    – Universal Brow Pencil. Super excited to try this!
    – Cucumber face mask. Good for summer.
    – Eye pencil in a light taupe colour. Totally was trying to find the cap like everyone else!
    – Coral NP. I do shellac polish every two weeks so this will be swapped.

  31. Got the same bag as Liz and love it! 🙂

  32. Loved my bag this month. I got the smash box primer, pretty mini nail polish melon color, eyeshadow Cream in pink pearl, 3 bio-republic face masks and Jules and Esther facial serum delux sample. I also loved the bag this month.

  33. Even w the primer, I still liked my bag. Just still trying to figure out the ‘winning’ profile to get more make up items. Those who got two faced lip, who is your make up guru from your quiz?

  34. I got the exact same bag as you. Was not impressed at all. The only full-sized item was the SheaMoisture. All of the others were either travel or trial size that didn’t really impress me. I have gotten horrible bags the past few months, so I cancelled my subscription as soon as I saw what I got. It’s not worth the money anymore in my opinion.

  35. I did not like my bag at all. I don’t like primer. I’m tired of nail polish. My eye crayon is boring and I received lotion. And I got something else too but for the life of me I can’t remember. So that tells you how much I liked my bag. This month was two thumbs down. Last month and the month before were great.

  36. Not gonna lie, I was pretty upset I didn’t get the Too Faced lipstick but reading your thoughts on the primer makes me excited to try it! (once mine finally arrives to Canada…)

    can’t wait for the next month’s bag, hopefully it’ll pamper to my tastes more 😀

    • What is up with all of this nail polish and lipstick that could belong to clown

  37. Nice I like the Shea Moisture crayon 🙂

  38. I just got my bag today and I am pretty happy with most of the products,
    J. Cat beauty lip stain: was probably the biggest miss for me, the shade did not go well with my skin tone.
    It cosmetics brow pencil: two thumbs up
    Smashbox primer: I have sampled this many times. It is an ok product but I was really hoping for the melted lipstick.
    Be Fine cucumber mask: I will hopefully try this out tonight.
    tre’stique eye crayon in pink pearl, I would not really call this color pink, but it adds a nice shimmer to my eyelid.

    • P.s. I really liked the actual bag this month too. I love the feel of the material this month 🙂

  39. I got the same eye pencil in Aspen pine and was fooled about the cap too! I searched my box forever for the missing cap! I won’t use it because it’s too green so it’ll get swapped. I got the nail polish in the pretty blue green color—- I didn’t like it at first and planned on swapping, but since I’m going to a pool party next weekend this color will work perfectly! Plus it will give me a bold new change from my everyday light pink colors. This was my very first IPSY bag and was pleasantly pleased!

  40. I have Liz box envy since her box looks great, although my box was not bad. I got the eye shadow with the cool cap but I got it in a bland color (not so bad I guess), the Smashbox primer (it’s good but I already have some), an eyeliner pen (I’m skeptical I’ll be able to put this on right), two eye gel pads, and the most ugly shade of lip stain for my complexion imaginable.

    If the lip stain had been a different color then I think I’d be happy – seriously, what is up with all of the cool-undertone lip products? Some of us have warmer or yellow undertones and cool pink just makes us look bad.

  41. I love this bag!! I have had it a few months now (4?) and I keep changing my profile, finally got an amazing bag!!
    I received:
    Too Faced Melted lipstick
    IT brow power pencil and brush (my favorite discovery!)
    Aurora BlackBerry eyeliner
    Shadow crayon in gold
    3 face masks from BioRepublic
    So happy this month!

    • I want YOUR bag! Mine was mostly a bust.

    • I want your bag!!! What did you change your profile settings to???? My bag was awful this month 🙁

      • I added both Christen and Desi as my stylist (never knew you could pick 2 before this month!) and I said I am ‘Very Adventurous’ with makeup. Those were the 2 changes, and I am so happy with it. We will see what happens next month!

  42. I recieved the Smashbox primer, and the crayon. I had the exact thought! I was thinking oh man they sent me one without a cap until I felt it and discovered that was the cap lol! I recieced the Melted lipstick a few months ago when they had it the first time, so I was happy not to get it again!

  43. The cap fooled me! I pulled it out and was like “Noooooooooooooooo…oh it’s fine! The cap must have just come off as I pulled it out.” Dig around in the bag. No. Cap. I looked at the cap again then SLOWLY reached out and touched it. IT’S FAKE! Hahahaha I love it.

  44. I got the Too Faced Melted lipstick. This was also my first month since I signed back up for Ipsy (have been canceled for 6 months or so). So I’m wondering if they gave only new subscribers the Melted lipstick? I am happy that I received it but I really dislike when companies don’t treat their loyal customers as well as new customers.

    • This was my first month and I got the Smashbox primer. I’m fine with it, but I wish my other items had been more fitting for me, especially considered the quiz/profile I took the time to fill out.

    • This was my first month too and I got the Smashbox Primer instead of the Too Face Melted lipstick as well.. I was really hoping for the lipstick too, but I can’t complain as I love the primer as well and this is a perfect travel size.. Plus I loved the lip stain I got in my bag after trying it, so I’m happy with at least one lippy item 🙂

  45. Did ANYONE get the Too Faced Melted? I have seen a ton of reviews and NOT ONE person has gotten the Melted instead of the Smashbox. Disappointing.

    • I thought the same thing no one got the two faced lip product. Every one got the smash box primer. But I did see in some of the comment that maybe a few people got the two faced lip product. I’m guessing a very few .

  46. I actually liked my Ipsy bag this month, I got the Smashbox primer, a J.Cat lip stain, It Brow Pencil, Lavanilla body butter and the tre’StiQue in Kona Coffee. I have a ton of the Smashbox primer, but LOVE the It Cosmetics Universal brow pencil, I normally hate getting brow products because I don’t use them. I tried this one and LOVE it, great for beginners like me lol. I’m not excited about getting lotion as samples, but love Lavanilla and love the body butter it smells delicious!! The mini shadow crayon is nice, I like the color. The only thing I didn’t like is the J.Cat hydrating lip stain, it’s not really a normal stain that goes matte and stays on your lips it comes off on everything. Plus the color is a really odd shade for my skin tone; the upset it has a nice minty scent. I would’ve loved to have gotten the Melted lipstick or SheaMoisture lip crayon, I didn’t know they made makeup either.

  47. I got almost the same bag as you. The only difference is I received a pretty blue nail polish which I was quite happy with until I used it and it began flaking off within 2 hours of painting my nails *grumble, grumble*. I really like the leave in conditioner, it made my hair so soft and silky!

    P.S. I too had the moment of confusion over the eyeshadow cap.

  48. I really love my Ipsy subscription. For $10, you really get your money’s worth. I received the eyeshadow crayon and the primer, but everything else differed. I received a microdermabrasion scrub, a eyebrow pencil, and BioRepublic SkinCare Sheet Mask Trio. I am excited to use everything I received! I have to say, I really like this sub more than Birchbox. Birchbox has been very disappointing lately.

  49. I was getting ready to write Ipsy about the missing cap. I didn’t know until I saw your post. I thought the crayon had dried out from missing the cap and that’s why it didn’t work. Hahahahahaha

    • Glad I’m not the only one – I only figured it out when I tried to swatch it! 🙂

    • LOL, I tried to swatch mine on my arm and was like, seriously?! No pigment whatsoever?! Then I realized it was the cap! I’m glad I’m not the only one. 🙂

  50. It took me awhile to figure out the eye crayon, too! I got the dark brown shade. I wish it had been one of the two lighter-colored ones. I would have gotten so much more use out of those. I considered swapping mine, but it was slightly smushed from the cap and it seems like everyone is listing them, anyway.

    This is my first ever Ipsy bag, and I don’t love it…but I’m going to give it a couple more months and see how it goes.

    I got the same Smashbox primer, which I have used in the past but think it might have broken me out. I might give it another try, though.

    I also got a turquoise eyeliner pencil which wouldn’t look good with my coloring at all, plus I specified on the quiz I didn’t want eyeshadows or eyeliners. I can understand that everyone got the eyeshadow crayon, but I don’t understand why I got an eyeliner. On the other hand, I put that I especially like lip products, but didn’t get any.

    I also received a body butter that I’ll use, but I wish it were a bigger bottle, and a nail polish in a color that isn’t really my style. I also don’t love the bag this month.

    Hopefully, the next couple of months will be better!

    • I got your exact same bag. I wasn’t thrilled with the brown color eyeshadow either, or the bright pink nailpolish since glossybox sent me almost the same shade in a different brand.

    • Don’t worry, if you like lippies you will get PLENTY of them with Ipsy!

    • My daughter got the same bag as well. She was deeply underwhelmed. She didn’t like the makeup bag, doesn’t use eyeshadow crayons and does not do pink, though my other daughter loved the color. I put the pencil and bag for swapping, though if someone doesn’t show interest I may keep the pencil for myself.

      The lotion smells nice, but hers came pretty much empty. I wrote to Ipsy about it, and they haven’t replied yet.

      She did like the eye pencil because it matches her hair and she will try the primer.

    • If you had wanted to trade your dark brown eye pencil for the golden one I got 2 and had wanted to try the darker shade. Just let me know =)

    • Same bag as you right down to the colors. I got the coral/pink polish which i will use on my toes but I’m never happy with blue liner… or anything blue so that will be given away. A lot of people are disappointed with the bag but i like that it is black it will go great in my purse without getting stained/dingy
