July Ipsy Glam Bag

When I say I'm utterly shocked by this month's glam bag, that's simply an understatement!

July's Ipsy Glam Bag was full of surprises and tons of new brands/products I've never tried before. And they are all new favorites of mine that I've reached for lately. And this cute little bag is everything you need in a summer makeup bag! It's easy to wipe off clean, holds so much, and the zipper details is screaming summer vacation, or these days, a trip to the beach!

BELLAPIERRE COSMETICS Banana Setting Powder - This setting powder is perfect for setting your face on these hot and humid summer days! It leaves your makeup looking airbrushed and smooth, minimizing any creasing in those specific areas, and the yellow tones help to naturally color correct any darkness on your face. This banana powder is vegan and is made with naturally derived ingredients.

CIATE LONDON Watermelon Burst Hydrating Primer - This hydrating watermelon primer instantly adds a hydrated base for makeup. Made with hyaluronic acid, it acts as a moisture magnet helping to keep your skin glowing and hydrated. The watermelon extracts also add vitamin C, which helps to brighten and protect. Personally, I don't lean towards hydrating/dewy primers as my skin is already dewy enough, but this would be perfect for someone with dryer skin.

RE:P Phytocell Moisture Cica All in One Serum - An amazing moisturizing serum! Made with ceramides, this serum is made to help prevent your skin from losing any natural moisture. This would be the perfect product for someone who suffers with eczema, inflamed skin, or acne. And I know you're thinking, all this hydration -- will my skin be oily? Absolutely not! The serum sinks into your skin leaving it looking hydrated but not feeling sticky. It also pairs well under makeup! This primer is vegan and cruelty free!

/SKIN REGIMEN/ Cleansing Cream - This creamy cleanser leaves your skin stripped of all makeup, dirt, unneeded oils and spa without stripping your face of all it's natural oils. You won't feel any tightness or dryness after washing your face, which is perfect for any skin type, whether your naturally oily or dry. And the best part! I have a 20% off code for this cleaning cream -- "plantchemistry" so get shopping babes!

SPACE CASE COSMETICS Eyeshadow in Gold Base - This has to be my favorite item this month! I love anything shimmery, so of course its a give-in! Vegan, cruelty, and non-toxic, this is the perfect shadow that can be used on the lid or as a face highlight. And either way you use it, you won't be disappointed. The soft, pressed-powder texture applies and blends easily without any creasing! The perfect summer shimmer for that glow you've been looking for.

I hope you found some inspiration for summer beauty/skincare shopping! The Ipsy Glam Bag is also the perfect subscription bag for anyone out there interested in trying new products without the hassle or feeling of wasting a full bottle of anything.
