Our IPSY Glam Bag Plus June 2020 Review
Here is our info card complete with all of our items.
Our bag this month is a poolside pattern with sunbathers lounging. Hope they remembered sunscreen!
Now, on to the items!
Thrive Causemetics Lip Mate High-Shine Reviving Topper in ‘Effie’, 6.8 ml – Retail Value $24.00
I am always happy when I get a product I love from a brand I love! I am a gloss addict. Before mask wearing became a thing, it was my go-to for an effortless no-makeup look. My face might be bare, but at least I have lip gloss to make it looks like I tried, just a little! I still find myself wearing glosses often and this one is a stunner. It is filled with (hard to photograph) iridescent shimmer in blue, orange, pink, and purple. While it is pretty clear on the lips, those sparkles give loads of dimension on bare lips or when layered over a color. I also love the hollow style doe-foot applicator that snatches up the perfect amount of gloss.
The electric shimmer is notoriously hard to capture, but this one must be seen in person to appreciate.
FLESH Flesh to Flesh Highlighting Powder in ‘Jump’, 8.8 g – Full Size! Retail Value $28.00
I can’t decide if the branding for this brand is really cool or a little creepy, but everything I have tried from them I really like! This is an incredibly soft and smooth highlighter with just a little bit of a golden champagne sort of glow. It leans more towards the natural side of things, and literally gives a soft shine and shimmer rather than anything super dramatic. The packaging feels quite nice too, and I appreciate the large mirror inside!
This is a pretty heavy swatch, but with a large powder-style brush, the look is much more diffused.
Ciaté London Marbled Metals Eyeshadow in ‘Wicked’, 4 g – Full Size! Retail Value $24.00
This little pot of purple shimmer was really interesting! It looks like chunky glitter inside, but when you use your finger to apply it the chunks smooth out to a much smaller silver glitter on a metallic purple base. It is very smooth and super pigmented! While I am not sure I would have chosen this shade, I have to say it is gorgeous and I am going to tuck it away for a dramatic night look. Maybe a date night look? I really miss restaurants.
NACIFIC Fresh Herb Eye Cream, 1.01 fl oz – Full Size! Retail Value $30.00
I have loved every NACIFIC item I have tried and this cream is no exception! It is an eye cream but I thoroughly enjoy applying it to my whole face. The texture is a creamy gel that absorbs easily and leaves a softness and no film behind. Inside is niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and adenosine, and together they plump skin, lock in moisture, and help with fine lines. This citrus-scented gel is also perfect for tossing in the fridge for an extra cool application.
JayJun Cosmetics Wakepure Sheet Mask, 6 masks – Estimated Value $15.00 (Buy 10 for $25.00)
Finally, our last item is a set of six sheet masks from Korean brand JayJun. There are three formulas here: a nourishing avocado, calming shiso, and brightening seaberry. These masks were all totally loaded with serum and they fit well. I did notice they leave a little texture behind, but some light moisturizer helps with this and the softness my face felt was totally worth it. My fave was the avocado!
Verdict: This month, my IPSY Glam Bag Plus has a value of $121.00 which is fab for a $25 box. I also loved everything inside this month too, and thought the brands were really nice. I am a sucker for Koren skincare, so the sheet masks and dreamy eye cream were both faves. The remaining items were all makeup, and as someone who likes both glosses and highlighters, I am very happy with my selections from FLESH and Thrive. The Ciaté eye pot was also a pleasant surprise that I liked much more than expected.
