July 1st is a great time to talk about June’s ipsy bag, isn’t it? Can you tell I’ve been super busy lately?
Don’t worry – a post is coming soon all about the reason why!
The theme for June was Swim Into Beauty and all of the products came in a cute neoprene-like pouch! The samples (ironically) had nothing to do with swimming but they’re all perfect for testing out this summer. Separate reviews & looks will be coming soon!
1. Up first, we have… Liptitude Hydrating Lip Stain by J. Cat Beauty! And a dead flower.
Which I totally didn’t notice was dead until after I was done taking pictures and inside the comfort of my own home, so this is the picture y’all are gunna have to live with!
This is a lip “paint” (says their website) that is full of vitamins, semi-matte and ready to party for 24 hours if you are. It says that it will last “24/7” but I’m just gunna go ahead and assume they meant 24 hours.
Cost of Product (12g): $5.99
Cost of Sample (Full Size): $5.99

JUNE IPSY BAG TOTAL: $5.99
2. Photo Finish Foundation Primer by Smashbox Cosmetics
So, I don’t use primer. Like ever. Because I don’t use foundation. But, this primer was apparently featured in the Martha Stewart Weddings Big Day Beauty Awards in 2013 so it must be good! I’m actually looking forward to trying it out, and of course I will let you know how it goes!
Cost of Product (1 oz): $36.00
Cost of Sample (0.25 oz): $9.00
(Sorry, no discount code for this one!)
JUNE IPSY BAG TOTAL: $14.99
We have surpassed the cost of the ipsy bag with only two products! I’d call that a success.
3. Flat Top Concealer Brush by Glammiere
How cute is this little brush? I’m a little in love with the company’s name too – Glammiere. I’ve never heard of it before but it sounds French and beautiful and romantic… is that just me?
Glammiere also has a bunch of other cute brushes (some fat ones too!) so I would definitely suggest you hit up their website.
Cost of Product: $12.95 but ON SALE NOW for $5.95
Cost of Sample: $12.95 (Yes, I decided to go with the retail price!)

JUNE IPSY BAG TOTAL: $27.94
4. Cucumber Face Mask by BeFine
Maybe this one will make an appearance for Mask Monday…?
The website is very hard to navigate because the products aren’t organized – they are all just listed and I had to go page by page trying to find this mask. So, if you’re interested in more details, I have linked it above to save you time and effort and stress!
Cost of Product (4 oz): $25.00
Cost of Sample (1 oz): $6.25
USE CODE “IPSY” FOR 20% OFF!
JUNE IPSY BAG TOTAL: $34.19
5. Last, but certainly not least – Mini Shadow Crayon by Tre’stique
This one is one of my favourite samples! I love eyeshadow crayons, mostly because I get super lazy when applying makeup and they’re so fast and easy to use.
However, Tre’stique doesn’t actually sell these mini crayons unless you buy a trio of them, so I had to do some very complicated math equations to find you the price.
Cost of Product: $32 for three
Cost of Sample: $10.67
USE CODE “IPSYINSIDER15” FOR 15% OFF + FREE SHIPPING!
You can also buy a full size version (which looks to be about double the size) for $26.
And *drum roll please* the grand total for June’s ipsy bag is a whopping $44.86! Since the ipsy bag only costs $10 plus shipping, I’d say you’re getting your money’s worth… and then some.
