Ipsy Glam Bag Review - July 2014 - Beauty Subscription Bag

This post contains referral links.
What is it? Ipsy Glam Bag
How Much? $10 per month, plus $4.95 shipping to Canada
What’s in it?  4-5 beauty products every month  

My July Ipsy bag shipped July 10th and arrived July 16th. The theme for July is "Sensationally Suns Kissed". All the products came inside a hot pink vinyl pouch.

Here comes the sun and a Glam Bag full of beauty products so good that even the sun would worship it. There isn't a gray cloud in sight this summer as we give you an amazing selection of brands and products fit to help keep you looking your best during summer's brightest days and warm long nights.
Pixie Beauty Mini Tinted Brilliance Balm in Pretty Pink (1.8g, $8.40)
Packed with lip-loving ingredients, this glossy gel balm protects & hydrates lips instantly. After the balm wears off, lips are left tinted with a flattering, personalized hue just for you (color & intensity depends on pH level of lips). 
This is a really nice sheer pink colour on my lips. It feels like chapstick but colours like a sheer gloss. Love it. (Full size is 3g for $14, available from Target.com)

Models Own Nail Polish in Red Sea (14ml full size, $8.55 US)
The Models Own SPLASH collection dives straight into summer. Revitalize your entire polish collection; wear alone for a wash effect, or over your favorite color polish for a glistening top coat. 
This isn't for me and has been added to my swap/sell board. (Full size price converted from
£5 GBP)

pur~lisse pur~protect Essential Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 (15ml, $16.50)
Stay protected with pure flower power. Pur~lisse's unique peptide complex, Lotus Lupine 5, and Hydra-Shield Complex, offers superior full-spectrum sun protection in a light weight nourishing moisturizer. 
I go through a lot of SPF all year long, but especially during the summer months. Products like this are always welcome. (Full size 50ml for $55 from purlisse.com)

bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0 in "The Inspiration" (1g, $7.14)
Provides vivid, pigment-packed color with seamless blendability that lasts up to 12 hours. 
This is a great deluxe sample, modelled after the full size version but about 1/3rd of the size. I love the colours too (Muse - a "pink frost" & Passion - a "glimmering plum") - great for my green eyes. (Full size 2.8g for $20 at Sephora)

Clear Clinic Laboratories Vanished Clear Spot Treatment (2ml, $9.33)
Vanished is an on-the-go, clear spot treatment specially formulated with menthol, glycolic acid and salicylic acid.
Perfect timing as a hormonal eruption has just appeared on my chin. (Full size 7.5ml for $35 at clearcliniclabs.com)

The July Ipsy Glam Bag included five products valued just under $50 ($49.92 to be exact). I'm happy with four out of five products. The nail polish isn't for me so I will try to swap or sell it. I love the Pixie Balm and the bareMinerals shadows. The pur~lisse SPF and the Clear Clinic treatment will both be put to use immediately. My Ipsy bag is a win this month!

  1. I got the same bag, except my Pixi is very light. I actually love the nail polish. It's such a cool holo flakie jelly. I've been wearing it for 3 days so far, and no signs of wear at all.
