June Ipsy has arrived!

Good afternoon, my darling readers!  How is everyone this HOT afternoon?  I hope y'all are able to keep yourselves cooled off.  My a/c isn't working so it's hot, HOT, HOT here!  And the heat has made my pain levels go a little off the rails the past few days so I've been behind in getting things done.  To the winner of my give-away, I do apologize, your prize package will be going out with the mail first thing in the morning and I'll e-mail the tracking number to you!  Now let's get on with why we're all here....today it's not nails, but make-up!  That's color too, right?  *grin*

I received my Ipsy glam bag last week and let me tell you, I am so in love with the bag itself!  Anything cheetah print is just too cute, in my opinion.  Even though I don't wear it myself, I think it's just too adorable on those who can and do wear it.  I might be able to wear it, in all honesty, I've never really tried before.  Most of y'all have probably already seen what other bloggers who belong to Ipsy have already posted, but let's take a look at what I received this month, shall we?

I always love seeing this pink bubble mailer in my mailbox.  I always know it's Ipsy time!

The theme for June is "On The Wild Side".  On the back of this card is discount offers from all the companies that had products in the bag this month.  Not everyone received an item from each company but it's nice they offer a discount to every member any way.

Isn't it adorable?  I forgot to get a shot of the inside of the bag, but it's the same color as the zipper, a neon green, which for some reason looks yellow.  Forgive my camera please.

And now for the items I received: Cailin Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner in Purple, Chella Ivory Lace Highligher Pencil, J.Cat Sparkling Cream Palette in Volta, NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Glow, and Starlooks Liplining Pencil in Bare.

The cost break-down:
Cailin Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner          $21.00
Chella Highligher Pencil                $18.00
J. Cat Sparking Cream Palette     $  4.49
NYX Rouge Cream Blush           $  6.00
Starlooks Liplining Pencil             $12.00
                              Total Value  $ 61.49

All of my items were full size, except the Chella Highligher Pencil, which was a deluxe size.  I did list it at a full-size price in the break down as they didn't have a size listed on their full sized one on their website and the one I received has a different cap and does look smaller.

For those not familiar, Ipsy is a monthly subscription service you can sign up for that cost $10 a month.  You can take a quiz to find your own beauty profile and they base the product that is in your bag to your profile.  It may take a month or two for it to become a bit more custom to you, but they will get it eventually. :)  They also started something brand new in the month of June and that is the ability to leave feedback on what you receive in your bags and you can rate it from Yes, I'd love to receive it again! to No, I never want to get that again! which I think is awesome.  Sometime there is a wait list, so if you want to sign up, I wouldn't wait.  And if you'd like to help a gal out, here is my handy dandy referral link.  If two people sign up, I may get a little extra something in my next bag!

As always, thank you all for spending a few moments of your day with me and please, stay cool, we don't want any of you getting heat stroke!  Huggles!
