IPSY’S JUNE GLAM BAG

“Misfits. Rulebreakers. Bad ass babes. The riot starts this June. We’re hitting the streets with serious sizzle and signature looks. Coloring outside the lines is encouraged.Sitting on the side of the lines is not.”

This month’s “Rebel Rebel” Ipsy Glam Bag is all about making your own rules, and sometimes breaking them. Below you will find all of this month’s products along with my reviews. Did you receive a glam bag this month? Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know what your favourite product was!

Formula X Nail Polish in Wingwoman
I was so excited to see another polish by Formula X in my bag! This was the third time receiving one of their pretty shades, and although I would usually be a bit disappointed in receiving duplicate products from Ipsy, all three have been different colours. This little bottle goes a long way, and the high quality of the polish means you can expect a chip-free manicure for days.

Seraphine Botanicals Happy Hibiscus Blush
I love when my makeup products have dual uses, so I was thrilled to see this cute blush compact also included a mirror! At first, I was worried that the colour would be a bit too dark for me, but it has a sheer quality to it that allows you to layer until you find your desired shade.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Fireball
Finally! Ipsy hooked me up with a bright and fun colour for the summer! This peachy-gold shimmering eyeshadow is absolutely gorgeous, goes on super smooth, and (as a fun bonus) transitions to a pink hue depending on the light. This was the first time every trying an Urban Decay product, even though this brand has been around for years, and it definitely won’t be the last!

Royal & Langnickel MODA Crease/Smudge Brush
If you’ve been following my Ipsy reveiws for a while now, you’ll now how much I love getting brushes. This beautiful brush is a brand new product from Royal & Langnickel and I was instantly drawn to its bold, bright colour. It also makes my morning makeup routine a breeze – one side blends my shadow perfectly, and with a quick flip, the other side fills in my creases.

Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray
I left this review until the very end because I was very disappointed when I pulled this product out of my Ipsy bag. Many months ago, I received a beach spray product by another company, and it did nothing for my hair – my hair is too thin and too short to get good results. So, I rated it poorly in my Ipsy profile thinking I would never receive this product again (isn’t that what their rating function is for??). I was wrong. I should have prefaced this review by saying that I LOVE Marc Anthony products. I have both received them in previous Ipsy bags and bought them on my own. But once again, this particular product just wasn’t for me.

GOLDEN GLOBE STYLE: RED CARPET BEAUTY

With the post-Golden Globe week coming to an end, it’s time to share the last installment in my red carpet inspired looks, and this is one is a bit of a change from my previous fashion looks.

I’ve invited Toronto based makeup artist, Alyssa Antonio (owner of Makeup By Aye) to share her favourite beauty look, along with the products you’ll need to recreate the look yourself!
“I loved Jenna’s look! Her soft pink lip colour and smokey blue eyes are right on trend with Pantone’s Colours Of The Year. This is a great look for someone who wants their makeup to make an impact without overdoing it – perfect for a night out on the town!”

73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

For the face: You’ll want to go with products that leave you with a dewy, sheer finish. I recommend NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, along with Chanel’s Vitalumiere Satin Smoothing Fluid Makeup, and Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer Kit as the base. For effortless golden contours, I love Benefit’s Sun Beam and Benefit’s Hoola Matte Bronzer. Finish off the face with naturally flushed cheeks by using Makeup For Ever’s HD Blush in Nip Slip.

For the lips: NARS Lip Gloss in Orgasm will give you a perfectly pink pout.

For the eyes: For a night where you’ll want your makeup to last, I always start with an eyelid primer like Laura Mercier’s Eye Basics. To create this smokey look, I would use MAC Eyeshadow in Saddle for the crease, Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Ebony for the outer corners, MAC Eyeshadow in Mystical Mist to blend from the lids to the outer corners of the eye, and MAC Eyeshadow in Shroom for the inner corners of the eye. To finish your dramatic look, false eyelashes and a few swipes of mascara are a must! I love Benefit’s They’re Real mascara.

For the brows: With the smokiness and drama of your eyes, you’ll want to keep your brows looking clean and natural. To add definition, I  recommend Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow in Dark Brown. To keep your brows in check, Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel will do the trick!

Have you tried any of the above products listed? If so, which ones do you love? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks to Alyssa for sharing her favourite Golden Globe beauty look with us. I hope you’ve enjoyed all the looks this week, and can’t wait to see how you incorporate them into your daily style.
