If you follow me on Instagram you already saw what I got in my June glam bag.

This month’s bag is one of my favorite bags yet.  It is a sturdy weight tan canvas material with a cartoon looking mouth on it.

Here is what I got in my June 2017 ipsy glam bag:

Beaute Basics Travel Face Blender in Light Pink

Do not be deceived by the look of this face blender.  It may resemble the shape of a Beauty Blender.  It may be the same color as a Beauty Blender… but this, my friend, is no Beauty Blender! This thing is TERRIBLE!!! I may as well get a rock from my back yard and try to apply my makeup with it.  NOPE!

The instructions say to “wet the blender, give it a squeeze, and use a towel to absorb any excess water.” I assumed that the blender would become larger like most other sponges. It did soak up a ton of water, but it didn’t get any bigger or softer.  Save yourself $9.99 and buy a Real Techniques beauty sponge for $4.88.

NYX Professional Makeup Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé in Plush

So far the things that I have owned from NYX are some of my favorites.  As a brand overall, I really enjoy their products, this is not one of the things that I would ever consider buying on my own. It claims that it can be used on lips and cheeks.  It is a really pretty color, but it doesn’t really show up on my lips, and is not comfortable either.  Also, I will never use it on my cheeks because of the oily texture.  Kinda a waste of a sample for me.  Maybe someone else will get some use out of it because it really is a pretty color.

ipsters who got this product in their Glam Bag received the shades Cocoa Bean, Pink Cloud, or Plush (I got plush).

  • Cocoa Bean is a super versatile nude brown that also works great for contouring. 
  • Pink Cloud is a warm pinky coral that’s perf for a lit-from-within flush. 
  • Plush is a cool nude pink that looks awesome on literally all skin tones.

PÜR Mini Fully Charged Magnetic Mascara

I really love mascaras, but for some reason, I am just really tired of getting them in my glam bags.  To be honest, I haven’t even opened this one up to look at the brush.  Maybe I will just pass this along to someone else.  Kinda a waste of a sample…

Surprisingly this is the thing that I am looking forward to using the most out of my 5 samples this month.  I have been really into skin care recently.


I have finally made up my mind and I am planning to get a 3-month subscription to Boxy Charm… but I haven’t signed up for it yet.  I have seen a few posts about what is in the June box.  I think that the RealHer eyeshadow palette looks great, but I am never going to wear the liquid lipstick and I’m not sure if I want the brush, face masks, and highlight.  I think that I’ll wait until next month.

  1. I got the same Lip & Cheek Soufflé from NYX and I completely agree! The formula is not up to par with the other products NYX has to offer. What did you think of the Balm blush?

  2. So my friend basically begged me to sign back up for ipsy. I did and now she’s been telling me how much she hates it lately and she’s signed up for boxy charm. Now after reading your post, I kind of see your point. Sure boxy charm is more, but it seems like the quality of products is so much better!

  3. Huh, that’s the first time I’ve heard of that NYX Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé. Sucks it doesn’t work well as a cheek product and doesn’t show up on your lips!

    The Skyn brand of skincare has really good reviews, I’ve always wanted to try something!

    I hope you’ll like Boxy Charm!


    1. Right now I have a few other skin care products that I am sampling first, but I am looking forward to trying Skyn out! I think I have used makeup wipes from them before, and despite not being a fan of makeup wipes, I do remember liking them.
