Ipsy Glambag May 2014

Hi everyone!!! It’s time to show you what I got in my May Ipsy Glambag! I freakin love getting this bag every month. I think my heart skips a beat when I see that pink bubble wrapped envelope in the mailbox every month. This month is no exception. I love what I received in this month’s bag, so lets get into it!

For those of you who don’t know, Ipsy is a beauty sample subscription box where you pay $10 a month (you can cancel anytime) and they send you a grab bag full of goodies based on your profile every month. Most of the time they send full size products! The value of what is in the box is always over $10, and it’s a great way to try out new products!


This month’s theme was Beauty’s Fresh Picks and I received 5 items in this canvas bag with a green leaf design on it.


Hang Ten Classic Sport SPF 50 Sunscreen 1 oz Value $2
EVA NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask 60ml Value $12
Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray 1.7 oz Value $3

The sunscreen is not so exciting, but I actually like having these little tubes to keep in my purse. They are perfect for going to the pool and just throwing them in your bag instead of bringing a big bottle. I was really excited to see the hair mask. I LOVE trying out new hair products, and this mask smells soo good, it made everything in my bag smell like it! It has Argan Oil and Keravis Protein, and it says you can use it as a weekly treatment or just daily use. This is a big sample, too. The water spray I was happy to see. I really like these types of sprays to use on a hot day or just as a refresher for the face. This spray says it soothes and softens skin, and to spray it on and then pat dry.


Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo in Duo #1 – Opal and Celestial Value $7
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer Value $7.50

This eyeshadow duo is so pretty. It has a pinky-cream color and a light gold- bronze color. The pigmentation of these shadows seems really good, so I am excited to try this! I had heard this bronzer was going to be in some bags this month, and so I was really hoping to get it! I think I look at this every time I go into ULTA, but I just can’t justify the $30 price tag when I have lots of bronzers already. This honestly looks just like my NARS Laguna but without any shimmer. I like how it’s matte, so I’ll be able to use it for contouring also. Oh, and it smells like chocolate. I can’t stop sniffing it. Lol.

I paid $10 for this bag, and I received $31.50 worth of products. I honestly love everything I got in this bag and will actually use everything! I can’t wait to try out that hair mask.

What did you get in your May Ipsy bag?

The PERFECT Summer Blush!

Hi gals! Out of all my makeup, I think I love blush the most. Blush is so fun to wear and instantly can make you look fresh-faced and youthful. Today, I have a review for you on the most perfect blush for spring and summer. This is Bobbi Brown’s Blush in the color Apricot.

This blush is a beautiful matte color that gives a perfect glow to the cheeks. There is no shimmer to this blush, so it looks very fresh and natural. It is very pigmented, so a little bit goes a long way.

The formula of this blush is so soft and silky, and very easily blends out on the cheeks.
I would describe this color as a matte, warm toned coral pink. It looks hot pink in the pan, but looks totally different once it’s applied. The color lasts all day on me and I love the natural flush it gives.

Have you guys tried this color? What is your favorite blush for spring/summer?

Thanks for reading, have a great day!

xoxo, Amy
