June’s Glam Bag theme is “Volume Up”
“Better turn that dial wayyy to the right. This month #ipsyvolumeup challenges you to fearlessly express yourself. Be seen! Be heard! Shout your message from teh rooftop!”
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.
“This loud and proud pouch is a not-so-subtle reminder to *always* speak your mind!”
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…
skyn ICELANDGlacial Face Wash with White Willow Bark
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.
