Review: June ipsy Glambag

Well I'm finally caught up with my glambag reviews! While May was pretty disappointing, June was definitely redeeming and I was super pleased.

First and foremost, I totally adored this little makeup bag by Rebecca Minkoff for ipsy. I've checked our her site since then and she's got some pretty fabulous stuff! That I will probably never buy myself. Whomp.

Anyway, here's what I thought of the products...

Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray
I've always wondered whether beach sprays are all that better than regular mousse. Oh yes, this one definitely is. I got the curls without the crunch. I can totally see how this would be great for the beach after getting your hair wet b/c it makes your hair look good so effortlessly. I loved it on my short hair so I can just imagine how awesome it would be on longer hair. I am tempted to save it till my hair grows longer! haha Or I could just buy the regular-sized version.

Butter Gloss by NYX
I received the gloss in Creme Brulee, which is cool with me. I like the colour and I've wanted to try the NYX brand forever but honestly, this lipgloss was just meh for me. It was nothing crazy different from any other [good] lipgloss I've tried and despite claims that it's not at all sticky, it was definitely a bit sticky in my books. I will gladly use this gloss but I don't think I'd buy it again.

OFRA Univeral Brow Pencil
This brow pencil could not have come at a better time! I normally use the e.l.f. eyebrow kit but was running low on the wax and this is the perfect replacement! The shade is awesome - dark brown without being almost black. Plus, unlike the brow kit that took me a little while to get used it, it's an easy to use pencil. I'd definitely buy this again.

Realtree for Her
I was pumped to get a perfume in my bag this month. The scent is nice - it's not what I would normally go for but I'm ultra picky - however I love wearing it & it always gets a compliment. My favourite part is the size. In the summer, I often go out after work and it's great to be able to refresh my perfume without having to bring a full size bottle.

Be a Bombshell Lash Out Mascara
This is another product which I was really excited about. I've been on the hunt for a good mascara lately so I thought this could be the one. Unfortunately, it's not. It's another product I don't mind using until it's done, but I would not purchase it myself. As much as I want a separating mascara, this one barely goes on at all and it takes several coats to be able to see it. The good thing is it doesn't really flake throughout the day but it's a flake disaster once you start to remove it. Oh yes, and it does smell terrible but I feel like that about all of the mascaras I've bought lately.

Have you tried any of these products? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
