I finally received my May Glam Bag from Ipsy. If you haven’t read my past reviews make sure to check them out, I review and give my first impression of each product.
If you haven’t heard about Ipsy before, it is $10 a month and you receive 4-6 products to test and a makeup bag. For the next 48 hours, there is no wait list to subscribe, so sign up for next months bag.
This months bag was travel themed and a new shape. Instead of the normal makeup bag, Ipsy decided to go for an envelope bag with images of the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, an elephant, and other fun places.
This first product is something I have tried before. The Smashbox X-Rated mascara. I love Smashbox products especially their mascaras. This will be perfect to have for vacation this summer, I’ll have to keep myself from using it until then!
The second product in my bag was the BelláPierre Cosmetics Nude Gel Lip Liner Pencil. When I first opened this lip liner to swatch, the tip of the product broke off, so I wasn’t very impressed with that. But after resharpening the pencil and swatching it, the pencil seemed very creamy and was a your lips but better color. Apparently this product is waterproof, so I hope it will be a nice liner for nude summer lips.
I am super excited about this next product I received in my bag, the Épicé International Hydrating Mask. My skin gets super dry during the end of spring and summer, so having hydrating masks around is always nice. This is the perfect size to bring with you on any trip you have coming up to pamper you and your girlfriends. I can’t wait to try this mask.
If you have read my past Ipsy posts, you know how much I love receiving brushes. This Slmissglam Small Contour W07 Brush will be great to apply bronzer for a natural bronzed look. I might also try this brush for highlighter. I love the white and pink bristles and gold detail, its so cute and super soft!
I’m not sure how I feel about this last lip product. The PEEK Beauty
nom nom natural lip plumping balm in Miracle is a gluten and cruelty-free product. I don’t normally go for plumping lip products, but I am interested to see if this will actually make my lips look fuller. It smells really good though, so that is a plus.
In total, this isn’t my favorite Glam Bag… I am excited for the brush and face mask, but the other products didn’t excited me too much. Maybe once I try them I will change my mind.
I would love to know what you go in your Glam Bag this month or if you aren’t subscribed, let me know if you are interested in trying it out!
