May Ipsy Bag

So this is pretty much late because I signed up late and got a late bag. That's a lot of "late's" in that sentence huh? Anyway, I have to say that I'm really excited for this months bag. I've been looking up Ipsy's recent bags and honestly I haven't really been impressed with their size of samples - hence why I've never subbed. But this bag is honestly just - wow. Much more than you could expect from a bag with a $10 price tag.

A Little History
Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription started by Michelle Phan several years ago. For $10, you get several sample - full sized items. Here's what's in the bag:

Mirabella Lipstick $22: This is one of the reasons I subbed. A full sized lipstick in a beauty bag? I could not say no. The color I received was a sheer pale nude color. When swatched on my skin, it looked like a glossy sheen than anything else. When on my lips, it completely washed me out. But the formula was absolutely divine. Very moisturizing, hydrating, and comfortable to wear. I was so tempted to buy more, I actually did look. But they're pretty hard to come by right now.

Pacifica Perfume in Island Vanilla:
A full sized perfume roll-on in the scent Island Vanilla. As it's name implies, it smells like vanilla. I kind of wish I got a different scent and I'm not really much of a vanilla person. I would've preferred the more floral Tahitian Gardenia but it's okay.

Zoya Nail Polish:
This was the second reason I subbed this month. This Zoya Nail polish pretty much pays for the whole thing itself. And full sized too! I received a nude pink color which is great because I don't have a nude pink nail polish yet.

Concealer in Yaby:
I tried this out the other day and while it is full coverage, it's simply too light for my skin tone.

Anastasia Brow Gel: 
I've actually recently finished a tube of this so this was a nice addition to the collection. The gel is clear and provides enough hold for unruly stray brows.

I'm very pleased with this bag. I've started using a lot of the products and the makeup bag itself is pretty cute! It's size is perfect for throwing into a medium sized purse. For $10, I received several full sized items, many of which I'll be using.

  2. This months bag really was a great deal. Yeah, I can't wait to try on the zoya nail polish. Maybe when I get time sometime this week. :)

  3. Thanks Melli! Yeah, I think the other scent was Tahitian Gardenia which I was thinking of purchasing before. But it's okay. I think I have too many perfumes anyway.

  4. Yup! I believe next month they're including one full sized NYX blush. If you're a fan of NYX, it might be worth a try. :)

  5. Ooooh good idea! I think it'll match you perfectly!!! LMK if you want it. :) I'll be glad to give it to you. Oh and if you want the Vanilla Pacifica too, lmk.

  6. I think next months bag is featuring NYX blushes. :)

  7. Lol, will do! I just haven't had time right now, but sometime in the future, I'll show a swatch.

  8. the polish is so pretty. It seems like a lot of people have gotten the wrong coloured concealer. But i do like the variety of products in this month's bag (:

  9. I just cancelled my glam bag last month. I kind of regret it now looking at the things you received! Thanks for the post. I may re-subscribe!

  10. Guess who has a lighter skin tone than you and who loves concealer? ME lol. Haha jk. OMG would love to find out how the vanilla Pacifica smells like.

  11. I am def thinking about it! This month's does seem well worth it.

  12. Ahh, I wish I got one of the perfumes. Like you, I'm not a fan of vanilla scents, but I would've loved a fruity or floral scent. Great review and pics! :)

  13. This looks like such a great bag! You have to show us how that nail polish looks.

  14. I agree. I think it's pretty hard though, trying to match everyone up. I love this months bag though.
