The May Ipsy bag is here!

A little about this bag. Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription that comes with 5 items (some deluxe size some full size) customized for you based on your beauty quiz results.  It also comes in a cute bag (which is different each month) for $10 a month. It’s a great way to try new items.

The theme this month is “Destination Chic.” The bag I received this month is a vinyl purple enveloped shape with a snap closure in the front. I fell in love with this bag immediately! So cute and fits nicely into my purse.IMG_4414

Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow Trio in Skinny Dip

This is a full size product, which retails for $9.99. I’m already a big fan of Pacifica products and just love this shadow trio. I love all the colors. I’ve used it a few times and it blends nice.


The Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant Lip Balm

This is a full size product, which retails for $22! This organic lip balm infused with Shea Butter, Pomegranate, Rose Hip and Vitamin E to moisturize and protect lips. A very nice lightweight balm leaving your lips feeling soft without that waxy feel.


Hikari Cosmetics Shimmer Bronzer

This is full size product, which retails for $17. I received the color Luster – Luminous true bronze. Each of the four quadrants is very shimmery which I’m not a fan of. I think these shades will be beautiful on the eyes or as a highlight. I don’t see myself using this as an all over bronze.


Remarkable People Fragrance in Etat Libre d’Orange .16 fl oz

This is the biggest parfume “sample” size I have ever seen. With notes of grapefruit, champagne accord, cardamom, jasmine, curry, black pepper, gourmand accord, labdamum and sandalwood this is a unique fragrance. I’m not sure this is a scent I would wear or not.


Smashbox X-Rated Mascara

This is deluxe size sample. I have a sample of this already and really like it. I can always appreciate a travel size mascara.


Wrap up: One of the things I love about the ipsy bag is getting to try new products I never heard of. This month there is only one thing I really didn’t like, the bronzer. I’m just not a fan of very shimmery products. The amount of full size products this month was a welcome change. What were some of your favorite items in your Ipsy bag this month?
