Review: July Ipsy Glam Bag


Oh July's Glam Bag. After the excitement from June's bag, I wasn't too excited for July's. There was just something about it that left me disinterested. Not all the products were duds though! So here are my thoughts:


 Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray Conditioning & Texturizing Spray
I was very excited about this product when I first opened the July bag. But after numerous attempts at using this product it just didn't do anything to my hair. I was left with crunchy sort-of waves and it looked like I just didn't brush my hair for the day. I think this could be a good product for people with shorter hair since my long hair really is quite heavy. It just didn't work for me.


 Nailtini Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer in "Mai Tai"
Tied for my favorite product in the bag, this nail polish was completely fantastic. Incredibly pigmented and easy to use, "Mai Tai" was a very bright orangey-red color that looked awesome on the nails. Even though it was very pigmented I still recommend doing two coats (that's nothing new for most if not all nail polishes). I've never tried this brand before, and after looking at their prices on their website I understand why. I'm happy to have this in my collection and it's a color I didn't have before.


 COOLA Mineral Face SPF 20 Unscented Moisturizer
Sigh. This product had me so uninterested right from the start that I didn't even end up trying it. For being "unscented" it definitely had a weird smell to it that put me off of the product. I use BB Creams/Moisturizers with higher SPFs already and nothing about this product appealed to me. I'll be looking for a friend to give it to so it doesn't go to waste.


POP Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon in "Coral Crush"
A "so-so" product from this month's bag that I didn't hate, but also wasn't crazy about. It worked as you would expect a lip crayon to, and it also has the traditional minty smell that lip crayons usually have. It wasn't all that moisturizing and didn't have a very good color pay-off on the lips either.


BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Sample
The other favorite from this past month's bag. I loved this little sample palette and actually used all the colors (purple was quite the experiment for me). They were very pigmented and easy to use. There was a bit of fallout though, but nothing too catastrophic to make me not like using them. "San Francisco" is of course my favorite but "Malibu" was a nice change of pace. I look forward to continue using this little palette.

Overall this was probably my least favorite bag out of the one's I've gotten so far. Usually I like 3 out of the 5 products but this month only 2 really stuck with me. Throughout the month I found that I had to constantly remind myself to keep trying and using the products, something I hadn't had to do before this bag. I'm looking forward to August's bag and getting more excited about Ipsy again!

Do you subscribe to Ipsy? What did you think about your July bag?
