May Ipsy Bag Review



This might be one of my favorite Ipsy bags yet! It came this morning in a cute plastic bag decorated in little ice cream cones. I think I'll give it to my sister, who used to work in an ice cream store. The actual products are really nice, too, and I'll definitely use each one!

Mellow Cosmetics Creamy Matte Lipstick in Nude
I'm a tad disappointed in this because I know another option was Posh, which has been on my wishlist for ages, but I've been dying to try this New Zealand brand for ages so I'm glad to get a full-size lipstick in a wearable color. These are $13 each, so it is already worth the price of the bag.

Pur-Lisse BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF in Light
I usually don't like tinted face products from subscription bags because they don't match, but this one looks just light enough for me! I would prefer something with more coverage, but this will be nice for lifeguarding or for beach days if I want to look nice.

Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter in Sin (sample)
This was love at first swatch for me. I don't know why I've always overlooked this highlighter, I guess it always seemed really pink in photos. It's more of a pearlescent pinky-champagne shade. It's very pigmented, smooth, and metallic, and you actually get a good sized sample.

It Cosmetics Superhero mascara (sample)
I've heard great things about this mascara on YouTube so I can't wait to try it! The brush doesn't look like anything special, it's a spiral shape bristle wand. I will give any mascara a try and I love getting samples of higher-end ones.

Briogeo Reparative Leave-in Conditioner
My hair is very damaged after nine years of competitive swimming, so moisturizing hair products are my favorites. I loved the Briogeo leave-in mask so I have high hopes for this, too. It comes in a pump and the sample should last me a long time.

Urban Decay Sin, Mellow Cosmetics Nude

Overall I'm so happy with the bag this month. The products are probably worth double or triple the amount of the bag's cost and I recognize and like each brand in it.

Have you tried any of these products? Would you be excited about any of them?

  3. I have the Posh lipstick and I despise it. It does nothing for my skin tone except make me look dead. I wish I had the Urban Decay highlighter, but I did get the Manna Kadar bronzer/highlighter duo.
