  • Laneige BB Cushion – I might have let out a little squeal when I saw this product in my June bag! I've been wanting to try cushion compacts for a while so I'm super excited to use it! To apply, use the included puff to pick up the product from the circular spongy material that is soaked with the formula (scroll down to the close-up photo below where I zoomed into the soaked surface!). Let me tell you, it was so much fun to press the puff into the sponge! I'm seriously thinking of purchasing a full size soon (I'm just not sure what brand I want to splurge on yet!). I appreciate that Laneige includes all 3 shades in the sample: Light, Medium, and Dark, each comes in a generous amount, so that you can find your perfect match. Since I am quite tanned right now (from my Thailand trip!), Medium is a perfect match for me. I tried it on a small portion of my face this morning and I really loved the feeling! It feels light, fresh, and dries to a perfect skin-like finish. The coverage is rather light but is buildable.
  • Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray – Another hairspray. Ugh. Ipsy! LOL. Seriously, I just don't really care for hairsprays. I get a headache from the scent and this one smells like coconut. Now, I love the coconut scent, but not on my hair and body. It's just too bad. I'd have loved to try it. I mean, who wouldn't want gorgeous beachy wavy hair in Summer?! If you like coconut scent, I have a feeling you will really like this as it doesn't leave any sticky residues at all.
  • NYX Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel – Another product I'm happy to receive! I've been meaning to try this NYX Butter Gloss for months! After having used it, I'm here to report that this is one great lip gloss that is not too sticky, provides just a hint of color (sheer coverage), and smells lovely (sweet sugary scent). It is so affordable, too, and is not difficult to find. Apple Strudel is a peachy coral with a hint of pink. When applied sheer, I like that it doesn't tweak the color of the lipstick underneath. The staying power is above average at 4-5 hours on me.
  • MDSolarSciences Mineral Tinted Crème SPF 30 Sunscreen – Summer is all about protecting your skin from the damaging sun so I'm glad to see another sunscreen product in my bag. I like that this one is moderately tinted (but no coverage) so it doesn't leave that dreaded white cast on the skin. The texture feels super light and spreads out so well. SPF 30 is a little below my standard but for days that I know I'll be indoor most of the time, it will come in handy.
  • Nicka K New York shimmer Eyeliner – Oh sparkly eyeliner, gimme gimme! :) The shade name is not labeled on the tube but this one is a daring, sparkling green! The applicator tip is so fine so you can make a really thin line easily. Beware though, the strong pigment really does grab on the skin! I had a hard time removing it even with the Lancôme Bi-Facil eye makeup remover! It's really difficult to come off. If you plan to be in the water, look no further, this one will stay budge-free till the end of day/night!

Another interesting thing about this month's bag is the bag itself! It was designed by Rebecca Minkoff (wow!). I'm not too crazy about the pattern but it looks nice overall! :) Just when I was thinking of cancelling my subscription, they started sending me good stuff! So I don't know, I might stay subscribed for another few months or so. We'll see!

    for the cushion i would recommoned you the Sulwhasoo Evenfair perfectiong foundation cushion . i never tried Laneighe because it’s so dewy and focus on more Dry skin

    http://popsicle13.blogspot.com/2014/06/review-sulwhasoo-evenfair-perfecting.html

    btw the close-up zoom Cushion sponge picture is insane …. just love how your picture always soooooo amazing

    • Jaa says:

      Just as I told you on your blog, I really wanted to try the Sulwhasoo one and was actually planning to pick one up at the duty free shop while I was changing planes in Japan! Of course, it didn’t happen! Story of my life! LOL!

      Thank you for your super helpful review na ja! I read it through and now I want to try it even more!!!

  • Rachelle says:

    Seems like Ipsy has some nice stuff this month! I’ve been seeing a trend in bb cushion creams here (my cousin is using one and she loves it) and I might cave in to one myself…… Most Korean brands have the cushion one but I’ve seen some great great reviews for the Sulwhasoo EVENFAIR Perfecting Cushion Foundation!

    • Jaa says:

      Another Sulwhasoo recommendation, now I really wanna hit myself in the head! I WAS THERE in the duty free shop staring at it but why did I not purchase it?!!! For some reason I thought it was going to be available in the States but guess not! ARGH!! LOL!

  • Erin says:

    Those all look pretty cool!

  • Divya says:

    The NYX butter gloss is such a pretty color! The teal eyeliner is perfect for the season.. I want to know your views on the Laneige!

  • Sylirael says:

    HNNGH! I love the colour combo of the eyeliner and the lipgloss so much! Super summery :-)

    As always, your photos are crazy awesome – it was actually an effort to hold off until I finished reading your text to go look at the sponge closeup, LOL!

    Interesting that people are mentioning the Sulwhasoo stuff – I’d never seen the brand before until I was in KL airport this last week, and wondered about it.

    Welcome back! We missed you <3

    • Jaa says:

      I’m so glad that people understand my love for macro photography! Hehe. I actually have heard of Sulwhasoo for quite some time now but I think they really just became popular in the States not long ago. Expensive line that’s for sure! Did you pick up anything from your trip?

      I missed you, too!!!!!

  • Great post! The BB cushion pictures are SO cool! I like the idea of a BB cushion and cannot wait to see which one you end up picking up. I like the NYX butter glosses but my one complaint: none of the names coincide with the colors AT ALL! It’s like they got mixed up at the production factory and someone just slapped names on glosses at random. Like one named “Berry Tart” would be on a yellow gloss. ??? Apple Strudel should be red! Anywho, that’s just the OCD maniac within talking. :)

    • Jaa says:

      Yeah, my bf was asking the same thing: Isn’t Apple Strudel more of red color? Haha.

      I think I’ll try to get the Sulwhasoo cushion! ^_^

  • pegg says:

    Oh I signed up with your Ipsy referral link months ago and still haven’t gotten off the waiting list !! :( Wish I had so I could try this cushion ! I have quite a number of those NYX glosses – they taste so good! I agree with Kristen – they colors don’t match the names at all !

    • Jaa says:

      Oh thank you so much for using my link, Pegg! I hope you get off the waiting list soon!! Do you mind telling me how long you’ve been on the list?

      • pegg says:

        Sorry I just came back to your site and saw your question. I had to look in my email history – Feb 25 is when I signed up! I’m thinking I won’t ever get off the waitlist… ;)
