Ipsy Review #2 – June 2020

ipsuy june 2020 beauty subscription box review june 2020

Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. Each month you get full-size or deluxe-sized products, plus a cute makeup bag.

This is one of Liz’s top recommendations if you are looking for a subscription box – the value and sample sizes are amazing. (Check out our list of the best beauty boxes for 2020 and our reviews of Cheap Subscription Boxes for more recommendations!)

(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).

My Ipsy Glam Bag June 2020 Review

Included is a card outlining some general makeup tips and a giveaway opportunity.


Each month, Ipsy subscribers get a makeup bag in addition to their items. This month features some sunbathing cuties on a yellow background.


Hanalei Sheet Mask Pair in Pineapple and Pear, set of 2 – Estimated Value $8.00 (Buy 10 for $40.00)

I have always done a lot of sheet masks, but since I am working from home, I feel like I do even more! This is a set of two fruit-inspired formulas, both of which feel pretty unusual for sheet masks! I can’t say I have ever had a pear sheet mask and I can think of maybe only 1 or 2 pineapples ones I have tried. Though these were made in Korea, they are inspired by Hawaiian beauty. The shape of the mask was a good fit on my face and they were both covered in a plentiful amount of clear serum. These were both really lovely after some time in the sun, especially after half an hour in the fridge.


Suntique I’m Pure Perfect Cica SPF 50 Cream, 15 ml – Estimated Value $7.20 (Buy a full-size 50 ml for $24.00)

I am all about sunscreen season (spoiler, all year is sunscreen season) and I have been getting some really great samples so far this year! This Korean-made formula combines 2 of my greatest loves: cica and SPF. Cica is great if your skin is prone to redness or reactivity, and the SPF 50 is awesome if you burn easily (but also still great even if you don’t). I think we can all agree that one of the main reasons we might not be faithful sunscreen users is that most of them just feel really bad on our faces. Greasy, shiny, ew, no. This is a great example of a formula that feels a lot more like a normal daily moisturizer. It doesn’t leave any icky film behind, so you are protected and happy. And the full size is a super affordable $24! Count me in, adding to cart.


Pacifica Cherry Gold Highlighter and Blush – Buy the complete palette for each powder here and here for $18.00 each

Pacifica makes some really great powders and this duo is so pretty! The ‘Rose Gold’ shade is a pinkish gold highlighter with a lot of fire! Seriously, the swatch below is heavy and you barely need anything on the end of your brush to snatch your cheekbones and nose with that good sort of artificial sunlight! The blush is also just a great shade: a soft earthy pink with a very subtle glow. It is actually a shame these two shades come as members of entirely different palettes because together they are such a winning combination. The back of this compact is a big mirror, too!

LOVE these.


Eddie Funkhouser Domed Blending Brush – Retail Value $11.00

This little black brush doesn’t seem to really go with anything else inside the bag, though I highly recommend trying both of those Pacifica shades out as eyeshadows if you also received them! This is a solid little blending brush with a soft domed head. It is great for getting inside your crease and adding soft dimension.


Pop Beauty Pout on Point! Lip Liner in ‘Risque Rose’, 0.35 g – Full Size! Retail Value $6.00

Finally, our last item is a little triangle-shaped wedge-style lip liner. The shade is a potter’s sort of pink, like if terracotta and a rose had a very pretty baby. It is a matte finish and works great as a liner, though I liked it all over my lips even better. It has that true matte finish but without the dryness that often comes with liquid matte formulas.


Verdict: This was one of my fave Ipsy Glam Bag assortments! Though the spoilers for this bag were totally different in my Ipsy app (no clue what happened there) I liked this assortment even better, so happy accident! Everything in here will be used happily, and I especially am thrilled with that powder duo from Pacifica. Though the overall value is hard to calculate since I could not verify everything, this bag has an estimated value of at least $32.20 even without my powder duo, making it a nice value for $12.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Possibly! As of publication, there was no Ipsy waitlist. Check here to see what month you’ll get first.

Good to Know: Ipsy sends out variations. You may get a completely different bag than me.

Value Breakdown: At $12 for this box, each item has an average cost of $2.40. (I calculated this value with the mask pair as one item!)

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. I’m still waiting for my June glam bag I was charged for it and still haven’t received it

  2. I received a green bag instead. I really want the yellow bag. The green one will be in my plus bag also. I was trying for the complete set. Hopefully Ipsy can correct this

  3. Aw, after seeing your review and pics here, I kinda regret not picking up that Pacifica duo during add-ons. I read on other posts here that it was chalky and not that pigmented. And their makeup is sub-par as compared to their skincare.

  4. How does this sunscreen compare to the ROC one?

  5. I have those masks coming too. I always use my facial roller to get the serum in deeper. I know they read our reviews for I mentioned doing this 2 months before they put the rollers in. I am happy knowing they do hear us and the customer service is great.

  6. I LOVED that sunscreen! Picked another one up in second chance add ons and was about to purchase full size from Soko Glam but found out it’s not cruelty free so I passed. That said, Ipsy does feature a good amount of cruelty free products—unfortunately not 100% but enough to make the sub worthwhile for me.

  7. The ipsy app has been glitch, at the top of the page at least, it’s been showing links to, like, “Yay, you’re getting Product X, here’s more about it!” So maybe that’s happening to you? But if it’s the whole bag that’s different, I’d definitely contact customer service.

    I read some reviews on the Pacifica cherry palette that says it smells fruity. Does this Ipsy version have a fragrance?

    • *has been having a glitch

  8. Still haven’t gotten my bag yet (delivered today but I’m still at work lol) but I’m so grateful for your review of the sunscreen! I’ve been looking for a sunscreen moisturizer and like you said, every single one has that greasy filmy feeling. I’m so looking forward to trying it!

  9. If you box is totally different than the spoilers – then you got someone else’s box. If that happens, if you reach out to ipsycare they’re really good about fixing that.

  10. I got the masks and sunscreen too!

    Full bag:
    Pear and Pineapple duo masks
    I’m Pure Sunscreen
    CC cream by Hey Honey in Light to Medium
    DOUCCE Highlighter in Glisten
    SUgar Cosmetics Matte Crayon in Viola (picked this one)

    While I put “rarely” for highlighters and CC cream, I’m glad I got some skincare in my bag anyways. I’m actually excited to try the CC cream anyways. Really didn’t want the highlighter, because I already have so many highlighter palettes! Overall, I’m alright with my bag!

    • Emily — you and I are bag twins! Interesting because I picked the sunscreen as my choice this month.

  11. Not my favorite products this month, but it isn’t always a perfect curation. Looking forward to July. I love Ipsy.
