For those of you who don’t know about this subscription bag it is $10 and contain 5 deluxe size samples (and sometimes full size products) each month.
Ipsy starts with a beauty quiz that asks you questions about different things you like as well as your different features (i.e. Blonde hair, green eyes, fair skin). Each month you also can review the products your received; so if you love something you let them know and if you hate something you let them know.
Lets get into this months bag!
This month’s bag is super cute! Even for being yellow and orange (two colors I really don’t like) it’s really adorable! The theme was all about travel. I also wanted to note I got my bag super early this month which is why it’s first up during Subscription Week!
Now for this month products!
SLMiss Glam; Sparkle Every Day Glam Beauty Sponge
I was so incredibly excited when I sneak peaked this for my bag this month! I absolutely LOVE SL Miss Glam! Stephanie is the sweetest and her products are just to die for! The sponge we got in this months back was a mini version of her normal Sparkle Sponges. I took a picture of the two sponges next each other to show the comparison. Both sponges are wet in the photo too. I really love this mini sponge for blending out concealer and applying my setting powder! The full size sponge is one of my favorites to use daily and I really need to order a couple more here soon! This was probably my favorite item from this months bag.
NYX Proffessional Make Up; Soft Matte Lip Cream; Shade- Cairo Full Size $6.50
I got a different shade one of these last month and I loved it! The formula is very whipped and interesting! It does take time to dry down but when it does it’s a beautiful and comfortable finish. This shade isn’t one of my favorites because it’s super nude! I’m not a nude lover like the vast majority of people out there so this is a real struggle for me to find looks to wear it with but I like to pair it with different lip liners and pigmented glosses. I will say I really do like this formula from NYX!
Elizabeth Mott Cosmetics; Pop Goes the Shadow; Shade- Mermaid Teal Retail Price $13
We have received shadows from Elizabeth Mott in the past and the pigment and quality is always amazing! This is my favorite shade I have gotten from this brand yet! It’s a stunning teal with gold, green and blue flip to it. It’s subtle but gorgeous. I don’t normally use colors like this in my day to day but I love to give them a try for a fun pop of color every once in a while. The pigment is amazing with or without wetting the brush and looks stunning. I paired it up with my Jaclyn Hill Palette and it looked amazing!
Tarte; Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder Full Size $ 33
I’m really not a fan of this powder! It’s super super finely milled and very smooth but it gives off the worst white cast! I didn’t even have to take flash photo’s to see the white cast this was giving off! After wearing this for a full day my under eye’s looks so pale I almost looked sick and the texture of the powder was just something odd. It’s almost so finely milled and so smooth that it feels like it just mushes on my skin. This just didn’t cute it for me this month.
TonyMoly; Painting Therapy Pack; Black Sebum Control Full Size $ 6.50
I haven’t had a chance to try this out yet but I always love getting masks in my different subscriptions because it makes for a nice break up of the normal routine! According to the TonyMoly site though this mask has bamboo and charcoal in it that helps extract impurities and breaks down dead skin. I’m hopping to give this a try and hopefully have an update to this post before it goes live!
This concluded my Ipsy bag for the month of May! I really love Ipsy and I find it amazing the variety of products and items we receive all for only $10 a month! I can’t wait to see what comes next month!
Thanks for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
