July Ipsy Bag 2016

It’s that time of the month again!  My little beauty bag has arrived with some great samples this month.  This month’s theme is laid back summer vibes and the umbrellas definitely make me wish I was on vacation!

The five samples I received this month are Makeup Forever’s Excessive Lash Mascara, the Balm Meet Matt(e) Trimony eyeshadow single, Eva NYC Get Glossed Hair Serum, Skyn Iceland The ANTIDOTE Cooling Daily Lotion and a Vasanti eyeshadow brush.


Everyone has been raving about the Makeup Forever Excessive Lash Mascara, so I was excited to receive it in my bag!  Honestly I wasn’t that impressed.  A review I read online, compared this mascara to having fake lashes and the end result is nothing close to that.  While I do think this is a great everyday liner for a simple look, it doesn’t have the ‘wow’ factor I look for in mascaras.  I will continue to use it but will not repurchase when I finish the sample as I already own mascaras that give me my desired voluminous result!


I’ve been wanting to buy the Meet Matt(e) Trimony eyeshadow palette so I was excited to receive an eyeshadow from the palette in my bag.  I am already a fan of the brand and their highlighters.  I received the shade Matt Kumar, which is a gorgeous, matte wine color.  It will be great as a lid color or a transition color.  I am definitely buying this palette!


I was so excited to receive this Eva NYC Get Glossed Hair Serum as I love hair serums and have been wanting to try this brand’s products!  It smells amazing, is lightweight and adds instant shine to your hair.  I love that its free of sulfates and its safe for color-treated hair, which is what I pay attention to when trying new hair products.  I also love that it has Keravis Protein which helps improve hair’s strength and elasticity.  I’m ready to purchase the full size to continue to use it and add it to my routine when I straighten my hair!


I have never heard of this brand before but did some research before trying this out and I definitely want to try some of their other skincare products.  I tried this ANTIDOTE Cooling Daily Lotion on a really humid day.  Oil started to resurface on my face about 5 hours after wear, which isn’t terrible but not a product I would use for my everyday routine.  I think I might try this in my night routine and apply after cleansing my face.


You can never have too many make-up brushes, especially eyeshadow  brushes.  I’ve received Vasanti skin care products through Ipsy but have never tried their brushes.  This Vasanti eyeshadow brush is very soft and is good quality.  I love the tapered end and think it will be great for applying cream products as well.
