June Ipsy Bag

It seems as though my Ipsy bags get better and better every month! Each time I think it's the best bag yet, until another one comes around and I change my mind. 
As always, Ipsy is a monthly subscription for just $10.

Here's what I got this month:

What They Say:
Starlooks' long-lasting, full-coverage Lip Pencil enhances the shape of your lips and gives them perfect definition. This creamy, moisturizing formula glides on softly to smooth lips and ensure lipstick stays in place, while extending its wear. Can also be used as an all-over, highly-pigmented lip color. Comes in several shades and various finishes to pair with any Starlooks Lipstick, Lip Gloss, or Tendergloss!

Starlooks Makeup Line is entirely Lead Free, and Cruelty Free.

What I say:
While I've never heard of this brand before, I really liked the quality of this pencil. It's super creamy and long lasting. Only thing is that I normally never where Lip liner and hardly ever wear darker shades like this one is. 

 What They Say:
Everyone loves a little sparkle! Add a healthy dosage of sparkle in your life with the cream palette that comes in a variety of complementing colors. The creamy texture allows the sparkle to be applied easily with an applicator onto your skin.

This product should be used on the body and not on the eye area. 

What I say:
If the swatches above don't give you any indication on this, take it from me. This is terrible.
It's so blotchy and not creamy at all.
Oh Yeah, see that last part? You're not supposed to use this on your eyes. 
So what is the point? I certainly am not going to wear black glitter on my body.
Maybe I'll save this for halloween, or not. 

What They say:
Whether you are trying to create the eyes of a runway model or the classic look of a 60's Hollywood star, the Cailyn Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner can make any style possible! The easy to use built-in brush makes it perfect for taking on-the-go. Create a chic yet casual look right before work, and then update it for a night out with the girls. The Cailyn Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner brushes on smooth and stays moist just long enough for wearers to perfect their look. Once dry, the gel is smudge-proof and waterproof for 24 hours. The highly concentrated pigment of the liner creates lusciously smooth lines and is safe for sensitive eyes.

What I say:
I like this! At first, I was worried that it was going to be too bright to actually wear, but the color turns out a lot darker than it is in the pot. I love that there is a built in brush which makes this perfect for travel. 

For some reason, I can't find the picture of the blush...sorry!
What They Say:
The NYX Powder Blush delivers sheer, silky color that glides on and blends beautifully creating a natural glow. 

What I Say:
I've been wanting to try these for forever, so I was super excited when I got this!
I really liked this blush. The pigmentation is wonderful, I swiped my brush once and had to tap off the excess because it was that pigmented. The color is really pretty too!

What they say:
Chella's Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil is a fresh and pretty neutral pencil that will brighten and visibly lift your eyes when lightly applied on the brow bone, dark circles, blemishes and red spots. Draw a line under the brow with this creamy pencil and then pat gently into place using your ring finger. May be used above the brow for additional highlighting, as well as anywhere you would use a concealer.

 What I say:
I loved this too! It works great (very creamy) and goes well with my skin tone. It's great to highlight under your brow bone, and above your cupids bow!

 Here's a swatch of all the products (Except suspicious "body" glitter):
