Like usual, I was so excited to get my Ipsy July 2016 Glam Bag.  This month’s theme is “Hot Summer Nights”.  These products are all meant to help us with our summer beauty needs.  Well let’s see and get right into it.

Eau Thermale Avène
Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Make-up Remover

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Meet the micelles—these gentle oil molecules dissolve the dirt, grime, makeup and other gunk on your skin.

  • Does it all. 3-in-1 cleanser, toner and makeup remover.
  • Look, ma! No rinsing necessary.
  • Leaves skin smooth, moisturized and soft.

This Brand’s the Bomb

Making waves since 1743—when the medical quality of the water in the Saint Odile spring in Avène, France was discovered. The water begins as rain and then takes a 40 year journey through the Cevennes Mountains, gathering minerals along the way. The brand built a full line of skincare featuring this soothing water as the key ingredient. Its calming effects on sensitive skin make it a favorite of dermatologists. And we happily go with the flow.

My thoughts:

This is very fragrant, if you are sensitive to scents, it is very strong.  I haven’t given it a try yet, but if you have read this blog long, you already know that I am a fan of micellar cleansers, I’m excited to give this a try.

This sample is .8 oz, Full size is 6.76 ounces, sample value: $2.37

This Brand’s the Bomb

Beauty in 5 minutes. That’s a philosophy we definitely dig. Founder Marissa Shipman believed women should feel their best all the time with just a few simple products. But “the ones” she wanted hadn’t been created yet. In 2004, she took matters into her own hands—quickly turning her kitchen into something resembling the trailer in Breaking Bad (but without the whole explosive part). Ten years later, her paraben and cruelty-free creations have taken the world by whimsical storm, fast becoming one of our favorites.

My thoughts:

This shade isn’t that wearable for me.  Maybe sheered out, I could try it.  But really I don’t have the patience!  As usual, theBalm packaging is awesome and their names of products always gives me a grin!

The sample is about 1/2 of a full-sized.  The full-size is actually a palette of many shades and is $42 and is .9 oz. (each color being .1 ounce). Sample value $2.33.

Too Faced
Hangover Replenishing Face Primer

Ipsy July 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

We love drinking coconut water. This is the first primer to bring the probiotic’s brightening benefits to beauty. Good hydration starts here.

  • Look fresh and flawless for longer, helps your makeup go the distance
  • Does dewy duty. Doubles as a moisturizer and leaves you radiant.
  • 100% said skin had the appearance of a full night’s rest in a consumer study

This Brand’s the Bomb

Did someone say over the top? Sorry, they’re not sorry. Unapologetically audacious founders Jarrod and Jeremy put the provocative in beauty. Adding glitter into eyelid primers. Scenting shadow palettes with chocolate. Making matte bronzer cool again. Creating a mascara that’s better than sex (literally). Ultra-feminine and ultra-fun, they love breaking the rules and bringing us the most amazing formulas. Leave it to these guys to always go there.
