IPSY July & FabFitFun Summer 2014

Hey you! Today I'm sharing two posts in one, because it's TWOSDAY! Get it? Yeah, I'll see myself out with that one! ;)
First up is my IPSY bag for July. Let's see what I got:

The theme is Sensationally Sunkissed and everything came in this leather-like scalloped bag.

  • wHet Nail Polish in Facetious-- playfully jocular or humorous, and that’s exactly how you’ll feel in this flashy shade from wHet Nail Polish. This chip resistant, high shine, vegan polish is "three free" and void of harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, toluene, and dpd (dibutyle phthalate). Plus, it’s exclusively made in the USA, and never tested on animals. Took 2 coats to get the blue shade that was true to the bottle.
  • Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil SPF 8--Highlight your healthy glow with our organically indulgent dark tanning oil. Rich in vitamins, antioxidants, & exotic plant extracts. Tan naturally! I haven't used this yet as I don't tan, but will pass it on to family.
  • Pixi Beauty Mini Tinted Brillance Balm--Packed with lip-loving ingredients, this glossy gel balm protects & hydates lips instantly. After the balm wears off, lips are left tinted with a flattering, personalized hue just for you (color & intensity depends on pH level of lips). This didn't produce enough color for me--I like a similar product from tarte much better--but good to keep in the purse.
  • Bare Minerals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow Broad Spectrum SPF 15--Meet the next generation in eyeshadow: creamy, long-wearing color meets exceptional skincare benefits and broad spectrum SPF protection. Chock-full of skin-loving ingredients, this breakthrough product delivers 5 benefits in one luxurious formula: 1.) 12-hour long-wearing color  2.) Super-charged primer 3.) Powerful brightening benefits 4.) Smoothes fine lines 5.) Protects with SPF. Goes on wet and pigmented and was worried at first I wouldn't be able to work with it, but once blended I loved it.
  • Befine Food Skin Care Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15--This lightweight moisturizer from Befine Food Skin Care features SPF 15, as well as rosemary, pomegranate & rice to provide instant hydration and protection. It is easily absorbed into skin, and is packed with powerful anti-oxidants and proteins to help balance the skin’s moisture levelsThis exploded out of the top somehow and got all up in my bag, so I haven't been able to really test this one. Whomp whomp.

  1. Nice products. Thank you for sharing them.

  2. I skipped out on this fabfitfun box, even though I had plenty of chances to sign up. I kind of regret it because I would have used everything in that box. I've even been meaning to get the infuser bottle. Oh well, I'll get it next time around. Great stuff in both ipsy and the fabfitfun.

  3. Well from my glam room we have the exact same bag!!!! Mine has been sitting in Indiana for the past 3 days and my Birchbox too! Same Facility and City and State and Birchbox has been there for the past 7 days! I go my Tracking info on the 7 and its the 15. At least I can live through other bloggers! xoxo- Cyndi

  4. wHet Nail Polish in Facetious is such a gorgeous blue! That would look great on toes, love it!

  5. cool, never heard of the fab fit fun box! thanks for sharing.

    $300 J.Crew Giveaway!

  16. never heard of it! that colour is awesome though. how cute is that little scalloped bag? twosday, you silly ;)

  17. I love that so many of the products in the Ipsy bag have SPF! The scalloped bag it came in is adorable!

  18. Well, this actually sounds like a great subscription service. That tinted balm sounds good too, even though it's not like Tarte. I love Tarte products as well.

  19. I have a sample of that Bare Minerals cream eyeshadow and it is really nice!

  20. So many fun goodies! Can we also talk about how cute the pink Ipsy bag is?? Love the scallops!

  21. Ooh, I love the nail polishes! I keep thinking about getting an infuser and then for some reason I don't. :P

  22. I have been wanting to try that Bare Minerals new eye cream! Thanks for the hand swatch! I like to see color before I try! And the pixie lip balm sounds amazing! Thanks for the great reviews! Susan

  23. I wasn't thrilled with Ipsy this month. I really wanted the Bare Minerals Shadow Duo and the Pixi Lip Crayon. I still think Dec 2013 and Feb 2014 have been the best bags for me so far. I have been subbed since Dec 2013.

  24. OOO that bareminerals eyeshadow looks like fun! The name is a little gimmicky, but the shade looks pretty good! I have one of their primer shadows (Urban Nature) and I really like it! Time to bust it out again :)

  25. Hello dear,
    I like your blog and find your ideas very interesting.

    Would you like to follow each other?

  26. Oh no- I hate when products explode during transit and end up everywhere! Bummer!

    Great reviews- it sounds like I need to check out the Bare Minerals cream shadow. It sounds interesting!


  27. That Ipsy bag looks awesome! Would love to try the moisturizer with the spf in it! The pouch from the second bag is so cool!


  28. The bare minerals eye shadow sounds great!

  29. Lots of great goodies!

    I want that blue polish hehe.

    Hopefully it'll be in my Ipsy bag this month which isn't here yet....boo!

  30. Both boxes are so nice! I wish we had more of these in India! New post on my blog -

  33. The ipsy really looked great! Never heard of fabfitfun- what a tongue breaker! I can not believe how many subscription boxes are out there!!! Hugs, Sissi www.beauty4free2u.com

  34. Unique Pink is one of my all-time favorite lip products! I wish I had an Ipsy subscription just for the mini ;) It's a shame the color isn't bright enough for you- I have pretty skintone colored lips, so a little pink goes a long way for me!

  35. Aww the Ipsy bag looks so cute this month. I'm kinda sad I stopped subscribing, but it was all part of cutting down on makeup spending. But I lived vicariously through this post :)

  36. Wow.Bright nail polish color. I m eager to see my ipsy bag too :-)

  37. Wow, the fabfitfun box is totally incredible!! We seriously want everything in that bag.
