Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription. It’s one of the most popular there are because of the ridiculously affordable $10 price tag and the slight customizations you get. Typically you’ll receive about 5 makeup (sometimes skincare) items in a unique bag each month.

Here’s the Bag Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside for July and we aren’t swooning over the bag to be honest
Everything that we received in our July Ipsy Glam Bag. This is a nice mix of items! And for the first time in a while we didn’t peek before we did our unbagging! The theme is “Hot Summer Nights” but as you guys may have already realized it really has nothing to do with the contents of the bag
So what is all this stuff?
Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish
We love the colors that Trust Fund Beauty makes. They are PERFECT. Other colors come close but theirs are exactly our taste
We received a very, very, subtle lavender. The name of this one is “No Filter”. We love it! Perfect for brides as this is a very subtle shade!
Eva NYC Get Glossed Hair Serum
So this didn’t wow us when we unbagged it. However, we did test it out on Penelope’s hair and the smell was much nicer than we stated in the unboxing video. It also gave her texture and instead of just weighing her hair down with oil like a lot of oils do this actually gathered her hair together in pieces to create beautiful large curls! Very impressed!
Mellow Baked Eyeshadow
This is a pretty shade called “Coco”.
This definitely shows up as a much more dramatic color than we’d normally use in the everyday. Baked eyeshadows are shimmery and so this is a bit shinier than we’re used to as well. Still pretty and we’ll definitely give it a go on a night out!
Make Up Forever Excessive Lash Mascara
Love the packaging on this one! And the wand is RED which is pretty cool….
except the mascara covers it up so we’re a little confused by this to be honest.
Also… the black mascara debate… can you have to much? If so… how much is too much? Leave us your thoughts below… we’re curious!
J.Cat Beauty Perfect Duo Brow Pencil
This is pretty cool because it has the spooly attached. That way you don’t have to dig around for one.
It has a unique oval shape which we aren’t sure we’ve ever seen before
The effect of the pencil is the creation of fine lines that mimic eyebrows. We really like this one and think it’s super useful!
So in summary
This was a great month for us with Ipsy! We received a couple of items that we’ll definitely be using and a few that we’ll give a shot! Our favorite item was the Trust Fund Beauty polish and the underdog was that eva nyc serum that we didn’t give enough credit to! All in all we received $34 in items and that’s without the mascara! Not bad for a $5 bag!
