My Ipsy came in last week!!
(jumping up and down, flailing arms, and looking completely ridiculous)
Let me take a moment to compose myself.
I had no intention of starting out so jubilantly.
But I feel like I can’t help it!
I realize my jubilance is a little over the top- which is totally un-30, but let’s just go with it.
Hey- I said we were going to go with it, so indulge me.
So last month I absolutely loved my Ipsy surprises. My $10 investment ended up paying off with over $30 worth of fun makeup products- all of which I loved.
This month was no different.
Are you ready to see the loot?
Please say yes.
So apparently last month they gave me the wrong bag, only to send me the correct back this month.
In addition to that fun surprise, my May “Spring Fling” goodies came in a super cute bag.
And it only got better from there!
Here’s a quick shot of what I got.
The bag came with the following items:
Pacifica Bronzing Body Butter (obvs- since I am usually so pale… )
Full size Zoya nail polish in Piaf
Yaby mini concealer refill in Buff
Full size Juice Beauty lip gloss in Pink
Full size Mirabella lipstick in Bellarina
Yay for great items!
Alright, let’s start with the Pacifica. I smells so so SO good.
I haven’t tried it since I don’t want to mess with my current tanner. However, I noticed it has a nice shimmer, which I like sometimes for my legs, so will definitely be giving it a try this summer.
This was actually a full size travel bottle, though you can obviously buy a larger version too.
I like that the Zoya nail polish is vegan friendly.
It is not my favorite color, but gave it a go and was surprised it actually looked okay. It is more gold-y than yellow, so that made me happy. Maybe I will wear it sometimes during the summer months.
I really like the Yaby concealer.
It is a nice, firm, cream in a pot and worked so nicely under my eyes, and I would probably even use this around my lips before putting on lip liner and lipstick. Blends really nicely. I’ve always used liquid concealer, so I was excited to try something new- and really liked how this felt and the coverage it gave.
I’ve mentioned my lip gloss obsession in the past, so of course I was extra excited to get a full size PINK lip gloss.
It tastes so so good, like oranges, and I love that the ingredients are organic.
The color is a little mauve-y, but it looks nice over lipstick and feels really nice on- and not sticky which I know we love!
I am also excited about my full size Mirabella lipstick! The coverage is really sheer (it’s a sheer lipstick, so it’s doing its job!) but gives a nice shimmer and a touch of color. Definitely a great shade for summer.
I couldn’t believe I got TWO full size lip products. It totally thrilled me. Those are my makeup vices, so getting a full-size lipstick AND a gloss was so exciting.
So now it’s time to do a breakdown on the price:
Pacifica Travel Size Bronzing Body Butter, $7
Full size Zoya nail polish in Piaf $8
Yaby concealer refill in Buff $4.84
Full size Juice Beauty lip gloss in Pink, $15 value
Full size Mirabella lipstick in Bellarina, $22 value
I got $56.84 work of makeup products for $10.
Most importantly, I will actually use all of these products, too, which makes me feel even happier. The nail polish is a little iffy, but I am still going to give it a shot this summer with the right attire and location in mind.
So there you have it! My Ipsy goodies! If you are interested in joining please let me know. I get points for referrals, and I have no idea what that means but I know it equates to makeup down the road. So win-win for both of us.
More to come!
