This May IPSY Glam Bag was a joy to open… with this terribly drab spring we are having in Seattle, the ice cream cones and sunny colors really made me hopeful that summer will arrive someday.
I was also excited to see some great names that I know and love! Here is what my May IPSY Glam Bag Included:
Here is what I thought, and if I would PURCHASE or PASS:
pur-lisse BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF 30: This product is a lot of things in one… foundation, sunscreen, facial moisturizer. It has color to it just like a liquid foundation, just not as solid in pigment.
I did like the product, but I have terrible skin blotching/discoloration on my face as a result of hormones that went insane when I got pregnant (melasma). If you have young, even-toned skin this product would be a DREAM as a perfect foundation for summer. I however need much heavier coverage than this provides, so I personally will PASS. Edit… I have been using this BB Tinted Moisturizer all summer instead of foundation and LOVE IT! I thought initially it wouldn’t give me enough coverage, but applying with my hands instead of a brush it goes on just perfect for the coverage I need. PURCHASE! Shop Pur-Lisse
Urban Decay Afterglow Sin 8-Hour Powder Hi-lighter: I love Urban Decay, and I love this product. I am getting more into hi-lighters and especially like powder ones since it leaves your skin with a soft finish and you can get the effect of just a touch of shimmer without overdoing it. PURCHASE! Shop Urban Decay
Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen in BlackNoir: I truly am a fan of a nice, dark, smudgy eyeliner… cat eye just isn’t my go-to look. This eyeliner is super dark without feeling thick or clumpy, and it is waterproof which is essential to my lifestyle. PURCHASE. Shop Pixi by Petra
Pacifica Island Life Eyeshadow Pallete: Not only are these shades perfect for summer and soft/velvety, this is an all-natural, vegan product. I LOVE these shades and was thrilled at the size of the sample. Total win! PURCHASE, for sure!! Shop Pacifica
Hempz Pomegranate Herbal Body Moisturizer: I am familiar with Hempz brand lotions and have used them in the past. They are very hydrating, and bounce my skin back well from lots of sun exposure. This Pomegranate was a scent I have never tried before and it is gorgeous! I love Hempz because their lotions are very moisturizing without being thick or sticky. This was a generous size sample, but when it runs out I will be restocking for sure! PURCHASE. Shop Hempz Lotions
In all, this was a great bag, and there was great value to it too! Large samples and top brands. Overall, I am thrilled with my May IPSY Glam bag! What did you think of yours?
IPSY is one of my favorite busy mom hacks, since for $10 a month, they ship 5 beauty samples to my door to try! Often the samples are actually full size products, and they feature some amazing brands <3
