Ipsy June Sneak Peaks + Master list of products.
What Ipsy says:
If you’re looking for instant hydration, this is it. This velvety smooth, all-natural body butter absorbs instantly for deeply hydrated, luxuriously soft skin. 100% pure Shea & Cocoa Butters blend with powerful antioxidants and essential oils for long-lasting hydration. Completely non-greasy, prepare for the ultimate indulgence.
About the scent: A grown up expression of vanilla. Its sensual blend of fresh Madagascar vanilla and tonka bean will leave your skin softly scented.
No paraben, silicone, mineral oils or harsh chemicals.
Weight: .85 oz -- Ipsy
What I say: It truly is hydrating and smooth. I like how it is FAST DRYING however I will say I am incredibly lazy with body lotion. I use oils after the shower because it dries fast and I can apply before I walk outside my shower. I do however like this and will use it as lotion instead. THIS SMELLS DIVINE! It's very sweet and a true vanilla. If you're not a fan of sweet scents, you won't like this.

OFRA COSMETICS - Turquoise Eyeliner
What Ipsy says:
This Turquoise Eyeliner is a gorgeous color that applies smoothly and lingers with a velvety finish. Not only is this pencil perfect in complimenting your eye makeup, it can also be used as a bold lip liner. The creativity is completely in your hands! -- Ipsy
What I say: It IS a gorgeous colour but it's not as smooth as some other eyeliners I own. You can see the texture in the swatch doesn't apply as creamy as I would hope. For this reason, I would not buy. I do like that you can use it for eyes or lips though. Skip the pencil and use the coupon code for the liquid lipsticks, those are great!

tre'StiQue - Mini Shadow Crayon
What Ipsy says:
This amazing 12 hour eye shadow has customizable color that you can build from a subtle wash to intense vibrancy. It’s also super blendable with a crease free, smooth finish.
ipsters who sample the Mini Shadow Crayon will either receive the shade Marimoto Pink Pearl (pinky-nude with subtle pearl finish), Venetian Gold (soft metallic gold), Kona Coffee (classic brown in a cream finish) or Aspen Pine (deep earthy green with shimmering gold pearl).
How to Use: Glide directly on eyelid, use as a highlighter on upper eye lid or in eye crease as a contour. Colors can be layered over a lighter shade for a softer look or layered under a darker shade for a more dramatic eye. Customize, blend and build as you wish.
This product is free of d5, parabens, talc, synthetic fragrances, petro chemicals and also cruelty free. -- Ipsy
What I say: This product surprised me. It's very creamy and applies smoothly. I haven't tested out the wear time so I can't comment on the 12hr lasting power but I will update with that information in the future. The colour is a nice chocolate brown. I think this would be a great base or liner on its own!

SMASHBOX Photo Finish Foundation Primer
What Ipsy Says:
Create a perfect canvas for foundation application with this silky, lightweight blend of vitamins A & E, grape seed extract and green tea. Worn alone or under foundation, this best-selling, oil-free primer helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for flawless skin with a velvety-smooth finish.
This primer diffuses the light hitting your skin to blur out imperfections for an even, soft-focus look while also making your makeup last all day long. -- Ipsy
What I say: It's a nice primer but overpriced, imo. It does what it says, it will blur out imperfections and cover large pores. However I wouldn't buy as I have other favourite primers.

FORMULA X - Power Source
What Ipsy Says:
Make sparks fly in this charismatic hot coral pink nail polish. Formula X Power Source is a universally flattering shade delivered in a patented No Compromise formula for xtraordinary color, xceptional performance, and xtra long-lasting shine. Infused with ShineXcel™, a luminescent ingredient that enhances color and overall brilliance. Recharge your positive energy with this high-octane, hair-raising hue! -- Ipsy
What I say: It's a LOVELY colour, I wasn't too happy about it at first but this one is actually my favourite of the lot. The formula is quite nice however I did notice minimal streaking while applying however it evened out before drying. I applied without a top coat (but with a base coat) and the day after there was some chipping near the ends of my nails (as seen in photo underlined). I would purchase this formula.
