June ipsy Glam Bag

June ipsy Glam Bag

The theme this month was - On the Wild Side. Love the pattern on the bag - so cute!

In The Bag.........

Lip Pencil
Color: Bare
Sample Size: 2.4 g
Starlooks' long-lasting, full coverage Lip Pencil enhances the shape of your lips and gives them perfect definition. This creamy, moisturizing formula glides on softly to smooth lips and ensure liptstick stays in place, while extending its wear. Can also be used as an all-over, high-pigmented lip color. Comes in several shade and various finishes to pair with any Starlooks Lipstick, Lip Gloss, or Tendergloss. Starlooks makeup line is entirely lead free and cruelty free.

I like the pencil and how it goes on so easily. The color, eh, not my favorite, makes my lips look even more pale than they already are. But is certainly creamy and easy to use!

Rogue Cream Blush
Color: Natural
Sample Size: 0.12 oz / 3.5 g
Adding a healthy glow to cheeks is effortless with the variety of blush styles and shade available from NYX Cosmetics!

I really like this blush - love the color. Looks so natural on my skin tone which is nice. I like that I can make it as light or as dark as I would like and so easy to put on too.

NYX Cosmetics: $6.00 for 0.19 oz / 5.3 g

J.Cat Beauty
Sparkling Cream Palette
Color Palette: Volta
Sample Size: 0.1 oz / 3g
Everyone loves a little sparkle! Add a healthy dose of sparkle in your life with the cream palette that comes in a variety of complementing colors. The creamy texture allows the sparkle to be applied easily with an applicator onto your skin.

These are...nice. I'm just not sure what to write about them :) Not something I would have ever bought myself. I could see for a night out to put a little to add a little extra sparkle to yourself. I noticed on me some of the darker glitter shades if I didn't spread them out well enough that it just made my skin look dirty. I plan on trying these in other places to see how they work, look. They are fairly easy to spread out/put in with the little brushes that come in the package. Next time I am going to try to use my finger instead to see how that works with applying it to the skin.

J.Cat Beauty: $4.49

Cailyn Cosmetics
Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner with Brush Built-In
Color: Purple
Sample Size: 0.14 oz / 4g
Whether you are trying to create the eyes of a runway model or the classic look of a 60s Hollywood star, the Cailyn line-fix gel eyeliner can make any style possible. The easy to use built-in brush makes it perfect for taking on-the-go. Create a chic yet casual look right before work, and then update it for a night out with the girls. The Cailyn line-fix gel eyeliner brushes on smooth and stays moist just long enough for wearers to perfect their look. Once dry, the gel is smudge-proof and waterproof for 24 hours. The highly concentrated pigment of the liner creates lusciously smooth lines and is safe for sensitive eyes. Choose from 13 rich, deep, luminous colors.

I love the color of this eyeliner. But unfortunately I have not figured out how to exactly apply eyeliner to my eyes, so after I tried this out it ended up looking like I had bruised eyelids :-/ I didn't even make a very thick line (thanks to the built in brush, made it easier than some I have tried to get a thin line) I'm not sure if some of it is the shape of my eyes and eye lids or what, but I can not figure out how to apply eyeliner so it looks nice and like it should and like I see others have on their eyes. I like the built in brush so I don't have a brush to loose or anything.

Cailyn Cosmetics: $21.00 for 0.14 oz / 4g 

Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil
Sample Size: 1.4 g
Chella's Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil is a fresh and pretty neutral pencil that will brighten and visibly lift your eyes when lightly applied on the brow bone, dark circle, blemishes, and red spots. Draw a line under the brow with this creamy pencil and then pat gently into place using your ring finger. May be used above the brow for additional highlighting, as well as anywhere you would use a concealer.

I was amazed at how well this works! I had some darker circles under my eyes today and so I used some of this pencil on there and it really helped to diminish the color there! I tried it how they said about to my brow bone, and it did brighten up my eyes. Works very nicely and able to blend it in so it works but so it isn't super noticeable.

Chella: $18.00
