The Coola Mineral Sunscreen Tinted Moisturizer provides SPF 20 and light coverage. This product came in my July Ipsy Bag.
As you can see in the ingredient list above, this tinted moisturizer is almost all organic ingredients. This makes it much better for your skin in addition to the sun protection. This makes it hard to say that this just isn't for me! The color is completely wrong. It is very orange and I have a cool skin tone. In addition to it being orange, it's also just too dark for my fair skin. However, when blended in really well it can look okay on me, but when sheered out that much it barely gave any coverage. When not sheered out it gives a fairly light coverage.
This is the deluxe size which was featured in my July Ipsy Bag.
Benefit's Benetint is a popular liquid rose colored lip & cheek tint. These kinds of products are great for summer because the liquid formula lasts longer than most powder blushes & lipsticks.
This formula isn't my favorite. I think the thin liquid application is cool, but I find that when I blend it out, it doesn't show up a lot. I think Benetint would be best for someone who likes very subtle cheek color. On the lips, though, it creates a really pretty, extremely lightweight stain!
BH Cosmetics' California Collection: http://www.bhcosmetics.com/search?x=-1070&y=-80&q=california
The BH Cosmetics California Collection Shadow Sampler includes 3 shadows from their 3 California Palettes. These colors are Hollywood, a deep purple, San Francisco, a bronze & Malibu, a yellow gold.
These shadows were really nice. They weren't the most pigmented shadows I've tried, but they blended nicely & surprisingly created a gorgeous eye look with all 3 colors!

Pop Beauty's Pouty Pop Crayon in Fuchsia Flirt is a lightweight fuchsia lip crayon that was in my July 2013 Ipsy Bag.
Pop Beauty's Pouty Pop Crayons are Pop Beauty's version of the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains or Clinque's Chubby Sticks. Pop Beauty's Crayon doesn't smell minty like a lot of other lip crayons do.
This lip crayon is sheer, but is easily build-able to create a more opaque fuchsia shade.

The NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Boho Chic is a light blue-toned pink.
The formula of Nyx's Cream Blushes is amazing. It feels buttery and smooth and looks very natural on the cheeks, but can also be built up to create a very pigmented cheek color.
Boho Chic is pretty long lasting, but, I would reapply at least once during the day, like before dinner when wearing the blush all day.
Compared to NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Natural
In the pan, Boho Chic & Natural look very similar. Natural is described as a soft light pink, while Boho Chic is described as a light blue-toned pink. This difference becomes much more apparent when swatched (below).
As you can see in the swatches of both colors, Natural is much more rosy and warm toned, while Boho Chic almost looks purple in comparison.

The J.Cat Sparkling Cream Palette in Suzie features 5 very glittery creams. This product was in my June Ipsy Bag. Suzie includes gold, rose, beige, yellow gold & copper shades.
Once you get off the top layer of dry glitter, you get to an oily cream formula. The application is all right, but it's not the most evenly distributed glitter I have. Surprisingly, for being so glittery, I didn't experience any fall out on my cheeks. The formula stuck to my lids pretty easily, but honestly it just doesn't look very good. The glitter is just too sparse and looks odd on its own. Plus, it transfers all over your eye area.
Due to the size of the glitter in this product, you should be careful when applying it around your eyes. J.Cat's website also mentions this.
Price: $18 * Size: 1.4 g * Buy At: Chella's Website http://chella.com/products/item/lace_highlighter_pencil
The Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter is a jumbo pencil style highlighter. This product is very versatile and can be used as a cream shadow, shadow base, brow highlight, inner corner highlight, concealer, under eye corrector or even as a lip liner to prevent lipstick from bleeding. (This product was in my June Ipsy Bag)
The Ivory Lace Highlighter is very creamy and easy to apply. It doesn't pull on my skin at all. This also blends easily with your fingers if you are using it as a concealer or corrector. It has some nice wear to it, but I do think it would need to be reapplied at least once during the day.
Despite the name, this highlighter isn't really an ivory color. It's much more peachy-toned than ivory. It looks good with my skin, though and creates more of a natural highlight than something more white. The peachy tone also allows it to work as an under eye corrector!
Price: $12 * Size: 2.4 g * Buy At: Starlooks' Website http://starlooks.com/collections/lips/products/lip-pencil
The Starlooks Lip Pencil in Tipsy is a matte, coral-pink lip liner that came in my June 2013 Ipsy Bag.
The formula of this lip liner is amazing! It is super creamy and smooth, it feels much more like a lipstick or lip butter than a liner. It feels super comfortable, and not dry at all on the lips and looks like a lipstick when applied all over the lips.
The Starlooks Lip Liner is also very pigmented. You don't need to layer it at all to build up the color.
From Left to Right: MAC Lipstick in Coral Bliss, Ulta Lipstick in Just Peachy,Starlooks Lip Pencil in Tipsy (both straight & squiggly line)
The Ulta Lipstick in Just Peachy (207) is very similar to Tipsy, but it appears to be just a little bit lighter. MAC Coral Bliss is lighter & more sheer.

This is one of the products from the May 2013 Ipsy Bag, Spring Fling. This concealer is in the shade vanilla and from a brand called Yaby.
I'm not crazy about the formula of this concealer. It is fairly creamy,but it takes a while for me to apply it and blend it in so it won't look cakey or like I'm wearing a bunch of product under my eyes.
As you can see in the swatch, this concealer is too light for me. This is my fault though because I had my Ipsy preference set to fair skin tone, I changed it to light for next month.

Mirabella's Website: http://www.mirabellabeauty.com/lips/colour-sheers.html
Mirabella Colour Sheers Lipstick in Daydream is a slightly sheer mauve color with the slightest bit of shimmer.
The formula of this lipstick is awesome. It is super smooth to apply and doesn't feel waxy, heavy or uncomfortable.
One swipe on your lips gives an easy to wear everyday color. Layered up provides a more pigmented mauve. I'm not a huge fan of the color, because I don't like mauves or purple-toned colors, but I love the formula.
Sorry about the vein popping out in the swatch! For some reason it likes to pop out while swatching.
