ipsy June

 

This month’s ipsy bag theme is Pretty in ParadiseHere’s what I received:

Realtree for Her .16oz deluxe sample – This scent was created by a camo pattern maker. The fragrance snob in me is glad I didn’t look into the fragrance notes and details before trying. This was my favorite item (of the items I’ve not tried before) from my bag! I tested the scent without looking up the notes before hand, which I find to sometimes help in reviewing. Here’s what Realtree says about their scent:

Realtree for Her opens up with the sweet taste of pomegranate, a hint of persimmon and an exotic scent of orchids. It blends with lotus blossom and champaca flower and it’s followed by the rich scent of amber, the transient scent of violets and the depth of mahogany wood.

I am surprised it doesn’t have peony in it, because that was what I immediately thought of. I would describe this scent as a sweet and juicy floral, somewhat reminiscent of Hanae Mori. It lasted several hours on me, and had the perfect amount of throw for my liking. I really am pleased with this scent, and wouldn’t hesitate to purchase the full size bottle and body lotion.

NYX butter gloss in Creme Brulee – I have most of the NYX butter gloss shades and absolutely love the formula!

Ofra universal eyebrow pencil – I just received this in my Wantable June makeup box, and love it!

Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray – I’ve been wanting to try this brand, so I will probably give this a try.

Be a Bombshell cosmetics Lash Out mascara – I love this brand and I’m pleased to receive a full size. BUT it smells like chemicals and tires. Or something gross…This will not be going near my sensitive eyes! I know everyone else has had this problem as well, and some brave ipsters tried the mascara without any problems. Personally, I’m just going to toss this and not even try it.

The bag was designed for ipsy by Rebecca Minkoff and has a cute abstract pineapple pattern. Love it! What did you get this month? If you’d like to sign up for ipsy, please use my referral link. Thanks!!

    I got the same Ipsy bag as you and let me tell you.. I tried the mascara, braving the horrible smell, and it did absolutely nothing to my lashes. So even if it didn’t smell like a dumpster it still wouldn’t be a good product. Disappointing. You can read my blog post about it at http://www.ladybugsandlemonade.com

    Rebecca has made it into my purse now and I’m using the Ofra daily. My garbage can has the mascara now since it scares me.

    Wow, I had no idea that Realtree even made a fragrance. The Carolina country girl in me will have to try this! :)
