July 2013 Ipsy/Myglam Bag

Whoo! Perfect timing! I received my July Ipsy bag right before I left for my California trip which means these photos and video were from beautiful San Diego! The theme for the month was Beach Beauty which couldn’t be more appropriate as I did hit up a couple beaches during my stay in Los Angeles. Overall, I really liked the variety of products in the bag and how well it worked with the theme!
The cylinder-shaped bag was a clear hot pink vinyl – very different from bags of the past! It definitely feels very summery and would be perfect to throw in your beach bag! Since it’s vinyl, you don’t have to worry about getting it wet and it’s easy to clean off makeup stains.
In the Bag:
Healthy SexyHair Soy Renewal Beach Spray – I love this brand, and a spray that can condition and give me textured beach waves is a win in my book. It also smells really nice and is the perfect travel size for future trips.

Pop Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon in Fuchsia Flirt – Loved this. I love how it feels and it’s super pigmented. I’m also so glad I got this color as I’ve been on a fuchsia kick recently haha.

Nailtini Nail Polish in Mai Tai – Another polish from Nailtini! I prefer this one over the last one I received since I’m not a huge fan of sparkly polishes, but I do love summer colors, especially coral.

Coola Mineral Sunscreen – This is a nice little tinted moisturizer/sunscreen with SPF20. The tube size is a little small and will probably only last me a couple uses. Ipsy must know I love scented products because while I’ve seen a couple people get the unscented version, mine was scented “Rose Essence.” The fragrance is very light and doesn’t completely cover up the sunscreen smell, but it’s pleasant nonetheless.

BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Palette – I found it funny that I just happened to get a “California” themed palette while I was visiting the state. All three colors looked really nice, but once swatched, I was very disappointed with the purple “Hollywood” shadow. It wasn’t nearly as dark and rich as I was hoping which is a pity because it was the one I was most excited about. “San Francisco” was quite nice, but my favorite of the trio was “Malibu” which was almost the most pigmented.
