June 2015 Ipsy Bag

This month's Ipsy Bag theme is "Swim into Beauty", perfect for summer! The contents of my bag include the following:

1. J.Cat Beauty - Liptitude Hydrating Lip Stain
2. Smashbox Cosmetics - Photo Finish Foundation Primer
3. Aurora - Intensive Eyeliner Pen
4. Altchek MD - DePuff Eye Pads
5. tre'StiQue - Mini Shadow Crayon

Most of these products have pretty good lasting power. The Shadow Crayon didn't budge all day on my lids until removed with makeup remover, and same with the Lip Stain and Eyeliner. 

I love that the Eyeliner had a very precise felt tip that was quite firm, allowing for a sharp cat-eye to be created. 

I decided to use the contents of this month's Ipsy Bag to create a fresh makeup look for you all.

 Products used on the face:
1. Primer - Smashbox Photofinish Primer Water
2. Foundation - Lancome Cushion Foundation
3. Concealer - Maybelline Fit Me
4. Setting Powder for Concealer - Laura Mercier Brightening Powder
5. Eyeliner - Aurora *this month's Ipsy Bag Product
6. Brows - NYX Eyebrow gel - first time using it, not sure how I think.
7. Lips - J.Cat Beauty - Lip Stain * Ipsy Bag Product
8. Mascara - Maybelline Lash Sensational. 
9. Blush - Clinique Color Pop - Heather

Also, I found a dupe of this product, so for those of you who are looking for a wayyyyy cheaper dupe from Laura Mercier Caviar Stick - Rose Gold, you can turn to tre'StiQue. I saw on the site, that they are selling two shadow crayons with a lipstain for $12, that's a steal. 

For those of you who subscribed? What'd you get? For those of you who havent, do you currently subscribe to any services? And would you consider Ipsy?

Until next time, XO - M.


  1. The liner turned out really nice! When I was subscribed I got something from J. Cat and quite enjoyed it!

  2. I got the smashbox primer and the shadow crayon too and I'm loving it so far. xxo
