Ipsy July “Hot Summer Nights”πŸŒžπŸ’‹πŸ‘™

This month’s theme is Hot Summer Nights, and I’m in love with the look of this month’s bag! It is a sort of silver/pink/blue duo chrome with a pink and blue zipper. The front design are umbrellas on a beach as seen from high above-just a really cute summer-y bag!

πŸ’‹The Balm Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette “Matt Kumar” ($42, for full size)

Thebalm recently released a new “special occasion palette” featuring 9 versatile shades with a velvet smooth texture, triple-milled formula, and true-to-pan payoff. This shade Matt Kumar is a matte maroon shade that’s very smooth and pigmented and would be great as a crease shade or alone as the lid shade. (Swatch below without primer)

πŸ’‹Vasanti Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow 2 Brush (CA $21)

This eyeshadow brush is made with soft nylon bristles and has a pretty flat width which probably makes it better for applying pigments and foiled eyeshadows. I’ve used this once applying a loose eyeshadow wet and it worked really well this way.

πŸ’‹Avene Eau Thermale Spring Water ($9-$18.50)

This is a facial water spray that is supposed to calm, smooth, and soften the skin. They also say this is perfect for post workout, travel, or to freshen up makeup. I wasn’t too excited to receive this product however as it is just canned water and I don’t think I would use a product like this.

πŸ’‹Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer ($32, for full size)

This primer is described as a revolutionary makeup primer infused with coconut water, probiotics, and skin revivers that boost radiance, promote elasticity, and lock down makeup. It’s a very creamy, slightly heavy-feeling formula that feels really comfortable on the skin-it also smells like coconuts! I feel like it did make a difference in how my foundation looked-just really flawless without having layers of foundation on.

πŸ’‹Cake Beauty Delectable Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream ‘Lemon & Cream’ ($12, for full size)

Body lotions, along with hair products and nail polishes are the items I really don’t like receiving in Ipsy. Not to sound whiny but I do have them checked off my profile and there were a lot of other great items to get this month. That being said, there’s not much I can say on this lotion because I haven’t opened it-but it is cruelty-free, vegan, GMO-free, and Parabate and Phthalate-free.

  1. The eyshadow and brush definitely seem like the highlights this month. Although the makeup bag is really cute too!

    The Cake handcream is actually pretty good – and it smells like lemon cookies. How annoying that they ignore your preferences though. πŸ˜•
