Ipsy: May 2017

I’m just going to start by saying that I really didn’t like anything in my May Ipsy Bag and was a little disappointed 😦

I review what comes in my bag every month and I never seem to get the brands that I’ve chosen in my preferences, but this month was especially bad!

With that being said, I’ll share with you what I got in my pouch this month:

For starters, the theme of this month’s bag was SUMMER FRIDAY. The bag was cute; it was clear with Popsicles and ice cream cones all over it. The bag is water resistant which is perfect for summer time and being by the pool.

The Products:

  1. pur~lisse BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF 30 Value for 0.34oz= $8.50

The full size (1.4oz) bottle retails for $35. Primer. Tinted Moisturizer. Foundation. Sunscreen. This is seriously a go-to in the morning and helps you skip as many steps as possible if you’re a “do my makeup in five min.” type of girl like me. When I put this on my face, is soothes the skin, and creates an even looking, natural glow. I don’t feel like my face is clogged after putting it on and I still feel light and fresh. I will def be buying this product!

  1. South Mane Macadamia Oil Treatment Value for 10ml = $1.70    

The full 100ml bottle retails for $16.99. This oil is made from macadamia nuts and hydrates ALL hair types, tames frizz, and strengthens your hair follicles. I’m not a fan of hair oils as they tend to make my hair greasy looking. I did not like getting this product in my bag this month and won’t be purchasing on my own.

  1. Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter in Sin Value for 2.4g = $9.18

The full size of this highlighter (6.8g) retails for $26. If you’re looking for an IRL version of that amazing Snapchat filter glow, this champagne-hued highlighter is IT. Very lightweight powder and long lasting. Personally, I’m not a highlight wearer, and I don’t think that I will be anytime soon. I’ve done my reviews with Ipsy and have said every time that I don’t like getting this product.

  1. Luxie Beauty Luxie Dreamcatcher Precision Foundation Brush 660 Value =$23

This is a full size product. You can use this brush for all your liquid, cream, or powder foundations, concealers, highlighters, AND bronzers. The periwinkle color on the handle makes the brush super unique. The brush is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. I love getting brushes because they’re always worth more than the bag and I love getting to try new brushes out!

  1. Caked Makeup Lip Fondant in Low Key Value = $16

This is a full size product! This is a lightweight, moisturizing, super saturated liquid lippie. It’s a berry-hued color that just screams summer! Honestly, I’ve never heard of the brand before but it has cool packaging. The color is a little more intense than what I usually wear so idk if this will stay in my staple of go-to lip colors.

If I’ve done all my math correctly, I’ve figured that the bag is worth $58.38 With 2 full size products, the $10 you pay for the bag is such a steal! Like I mentioned above, I wasn’t a fan of my bag this month, so I really didn’t have much to say about it.

The cost of the box every month is $10 + tax and free shipping. So for 5 products (one of which should be full size, the low price is a pretty good bargain. The bag is great if you’re looking to try out different products that you may not currently use.
