Ipsy - May 2014

Oh yeah, Ipsy is here! No surprise that it was able to show up before my Birchbox. I'm so excited to see what I've received. I absolutely love the cosmetic bag this month. Looks very eco-friendly and feels so natural. I guess it makes sense since this month's theme is "Fresh Picks". Check it out!

This month was pretty interesting. Most of the products are skincare products which I'm always happy about. I only recognized one brand for this month's bag which I don't mind because I love experimenting. This month I received approximately $50 worth of products this month which I'm not complaining about since a subscription costs only $10. I didn't receive any full sized products this month but all of the samples are generous sizes that can last for more than one use.

Hey Honey Take It Off! Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask
Pur~lisse pur~moist hydra balance moisturizer
Hang Ten Classic Sport SPF 50
Pacifica Mineral Eye Shadow in Celestial & Opal

I don't think I can pick a favorite this month because I actually love everything! The sizes are decent even though I still would have loved to receive a full size item this month. I also love that the products are actually related to the theme. I received vegan and natural products to use which my skin would be happy to indulge in.

Ok, so maybe there is one disappointment in this bag. I'm not so excited about the Pacifica eyeshadow but I don't hate it. Almost every month Ipsy sends me an eyeshadow in such similar nude shades that it's dulling me out. I think I have way too many nude/brown eyeshadows to go around. I guess you can't have too much but in my case I think I can.

I'm still proud to be a glam bag subscriber and I'll still be looking forward to next month! I hope it gets even better but I guess I'll have to wait and see.
