July’s bag was an adorable gudetama theme! The bag is thick and plasticky, very sturdy. I thought it was hilarious that his little butt is on the back! The idea behind this bag was easy/lazy makeup days and taking good care of your skin.
The first item in my Glambag was the Ofra Gold Rush eye shadow. This single went straight into my Z Palette. It is pretty and I have never had an Ofra eye shadow before, so I was excited to try it.
It seems like I get a lot of gold and bronze eye shadows, though, and I am not a big warm-tones person, so it will take me quite a while to get through them. I know a lot of people like them, though, so I understand why Ofra would choose a shadow like this to send out.
The second item in my Ipsy bag was the Ciate London Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Liner with a brush smudger. I was very interested in trying out this product. I’ve used it a few times. It is very inky black, which I love, and applies very smoothly with no tugging. The brush smudger is very interesting and easy to use.

However, I had the issue I usually have with non-liquid liners: transfer. I have hooded lids and this liner definitely transferred up onto my upper lid pretty badly.I will try it again to see if I can get it thin enough not to do it, but it drives me crazy.

The next product to come out of my Ipsy bag was this herbal lip balm from Hempz. After I rated the lotion I got before highly, it made me more likely to get more from them, which is one of my favorite ideas behind the ipsy bags. The more you rate the products you get, the more personalized your bags become! I like this lip balm so far: it has a little bit of a pineapple kind of smell, I think. It feels really nice on the lips.
The next item in my bag was this BRTC Jasmine Waterful Sleeping Pack. I have not tried it out yet.
The last item in my bag was this Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Ultra-Natural Mascara. I haven’t tried it yet, because I’m almost done with my Wide Awake mascara and my Grande mascara from a previous Ipsy bag.
Overall, my July ipsy bag was really cool, and I am really excited to try it all out. I feel like this bag could be a whole face of makeup all on its own, which is really cool to me.
