Unfortunately July glam bag subscriptions are on wait list right now so if you haven't heard of IPSY its a company co-created by Michelle Phan my idol! I love her! And its a subscription for a monthly glam bag where you can receive 4-5 cosmetics in one bag for just $10/month. Check out what I got for last month's bag here. So just today IPSY released the 1st sneak peak for the JULY glam bag.

SNEAK PEEK #1 A pop of perfect color will be yours from sand to sundown.

Obviously they are lip crayons but the question is which brand of lip crayons are these???

A.  Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm  (from top left to bottom: Curviest Caramel, Mightiest Maraschino, and Plushest Punch)

B. Tarte LipSurgence™ lip luster  (from top left to bottom: glitzy, fever, and frisky)

C. POP beauty Lip crayon  not sure what name of the colors

D. REVLON Just Bitten Kissable balm stain  (from top left to bottom: honey, romantic, and sweetheart)

In my opinion I don't care if its A, B, or D as long as its not C. And I am hoping not to get the nude lip color again I would really love the red or pink color from this Although from the description of IPSY  "A pop of perfect color will be yours from sand to sundown." It kind of veering towards the POP beauty. 

UPDATE: I got this from this blog. That she got an email this morning for one of the products for July glam bag.

SNEAK PEEK 2 : Sun or city, guard your skin from spots and wrinkles with this instant summer fave!

Michelle Phan posted like 2 days ago in instagram a product she really liked that would be the COOLA Sunscreen collection  which one specifically am not sure but that Michelle posted was this one on her instagram. Its the face spf 30 cucumber matte finish this would retail around $36. I am personally looking forward to having this on my ipsy bag this July. If you havent subscribed yet you should now!

SNEAK PEEK 3 Have fun finding the perfect beach-look with this gorgeous combination of California colors!

It has been leaked that this item is going to be BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow, this eyeshadow comes with 3 colors, the colors are Hollywood San Francisco and Malibu and the cost of this item online is $18 for the whole collection.

Some one posted a BIG SPOILER IN  INSTAGRAM 

This just keeps getting better and better! So IPSY just released SNEAK PEEK #4 ONE of these is yours for summer's salt air and beachy hair!

SNEAK PEEK #5 Turn up the heat and top off your summer look with ONE of these sun-ready finds!

So I guess only one of these items would be the 5th item on your IPSY bag this month.

So I guess the July glam bag will include:

So its summertime time to get your tank tops, shorts and flip flops out and head down to the beach. But how can you enjoy going out in about this summer with make up when it makes your face more oily and melts your makeup which is always a nightmare. I have a bad case of oily skin on top of that I have acne and blemish problems so I cannot wear a light coverage makeup. I love that the summertime is my birthday month coz I get a reason to shop for what I want in time to get ready for summer! HAHA... 

So I recently went on a Sephora beauty haul thanks to my Uncle and what I got that I have been using everyday is the Cover FX mattifying primer with acne treatment. Its really expensive though but I have been using this like everyday and it really helped with my breakouts coz it has 1.0% salicylic acid and its also a mattifying primer so it helps with my oily skin. Its paraben, fragrance, gluten, mineral oil and talc free and vegan.

I was looking for a BB cream that I could use this summer with  SPF and I was looking at the tarte BB cream but then they don't have the medium shade in Sephora anymore so the sales lady told me to try the Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer in Medium 1 . I have never tried a Josie Maran product before and I was skeptic at first coz I have oily skin already and it has argan oil in it but when she swatch it on my hand I was amazed by the coverage of the product with just a little amount. I have been using it everyday and its just amazing I love the coverage, its also fragrance, paraben , and cruelty free, and vegan. This also has SPF 30 which is good coz you dont need a sunscreen before applying your BB cream. 

The next product is an impulse buy coz Kandee Johnson has been using this and I was really curious to try it coz its her must have for summer. I have sparse brows so I haven't found a product that makes my brows look good. So I got the Anastacia Beverly Hills Brow Genius Kit in Brunette. I have tried their clear brow gel from my Sephora birthday gift and I loved it so I was really curious to try this coz its waterproof which I like coz I sweat a lot during the summer. Its a little work coz you have to mix a gel to the loose powder to make a paste but it worth it though coz first it matches my brow color it not that dark so that it makes your brows looks natural.

The next summer fave I really love it my JUNE IPSY glam bag its theme for this month is the INTO THE WILD. What I really loved the Chella highlighter I got been using it for highlighting my brows, cupids bow, inner corner of my eyes and also a concealer for my under eye. Its really creamy so its easy to blend with your ring finger. The next one is the Cailyn gel eyeliner in IRON which I really like coz it not to harsh color not like if you put a black liquid liner and you can smudge it to make it more softer looking and that it also has a built in liner brush. The Starlooks lip pencil I love the texture but I wish that I have gotten TIPSY or TICKE ME PINK instead of BARE coz I dont really love wear nude color lip I thinks it doesn't suit me. I haven't tried the NYX cream blush and the J.Cat glitter cream palette which you can use for body art or even nail art so I am looking forward to trying it out. This whole IPSY bag cost lioke $10/month and this is my second bag and so far I am really loving what they send me and I get to discover other beauty brands. 

Its not just the make up and skin care that's important but also hair care with the more exposure to the sun your hair can get damaged so I recently purchased this Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Moroccan sleek oil treatment  which is $4.69 at TARGET. It doesn't leave an oily residue on your hair and it helps in making my hair more softer, shine and frizz free. I put it on wit my damp hair and when my hair is also dry for more shinier and polished look.

I am so lucky tha I not only have oily skin but also oily hair! GRRRRRRRRR!!!! I have been shampooing my hair everyday but it makes it more dry and makes my hair color fade easier so I finally tried LOREAL's Everstyle energizing dry shampoo and I really loved this coz it smells great and really cheap and neutralizes odor. 

For summer hairstyles please check out my ipsy lookbook  on ways you can style your hair with minimal or without heat at all.

That's it for now, but I have more products that I have purchased but haven't tried yet I would post a review of those that I really like but these products I think are my go to products and if you have products that you really love for this summertime that are really inexpensive or even if its expensive but it really worked for you do comment below! Have a great SUMMER everyone!
