I know this post is a bit late but May was pretty hectic for me so I hadn’t had the time to post. (Lot’s of catching up and graduations going on.) It was fun but now I got to post these reviews! I got my Ipsy bag on 5/16/14 which is fairly quick since it was shipped on the 10th.
So here’s what I got:
Hang Ten Classic Sport SPF50. Retail: $2.17 for 1 oz.
It’s light and not too watery. The smell was interesting- it didn’t smell like regular sunblock but smelled more like “rum” which when I put on my face- didn’t bother me. I usually don’t get burned unless I’m literally in the sun all day. I like how it’s waterproof for up to 80 minutes!
Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo. Retail: $3.92.
I was really excited to try this but it wasn’t really what I thought it would be. I got the gold and the light pink combo.
I wasn’t expecting the gold color to have a bright pink shimmer to it- although it isn’t noticeable once its on. The light pink color was used as a highlighter or a transitional color, overall this eyeshadow was okay- it didn’t have a big fallout and an okay color payoff.
derma e Microdermabrasion Scrub. Retail: $16.25.
This smelled like lemons and oranges! I don’t use too many scrubs anymore since my face is sensitive but I tried this a couple of times… I would recommend sensitive users to gently massage using very little pressure.
Hey Honey Take It Off! Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask. Retail: $7.00.
I love peel masks but I didn’t quite follow the directions. You’re suppose to moisturize your face, add the mask all over (probably generously since mine was too thin to peel off), and then wait till its dry to peel off. Since I didn’t do it correct- I’ll have to try it again. I either do a scrub or a mask every other day or so.
Pur~lisse pur~moist hydra balance moisturizer. Retail: $16.18.
I got this in my Total Beauty box and I still haven’t used my full-sized version yet… Honestly, my current moisturizer routine is perfect right now so I’m not going to change it up (until I run out of course).
BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Light It Up. Retail: $18.00.
This was one of the bonus items I redeemed. The picture on Ipsy’s site didn’t match the true color- it’s actually a really nice coral/orangey color. The formula is nice too, its moisturizing and easy to apply. Btw, this is a full sized lipstick! (Sorry about the messy application.)
Mane Tamer Leave In Cream. Retail: $8.00 for 3.38 oz.
Sorry I don’t have a true picture- I thought I took one… This was my replacement item from last month’s repeat item. They forgot to pack this in my bag so I got this one in a separate bag. I love leave-in conditioners! I really needed a new one so this was great.
My total box was worth $53.52! Everything in this month’s bag was pretty awesome in their own way so I was glad to get any of the products. Since I really wanted to get the boo boo concealer- I actually traded for it on eDivv.com. I have to say, it has great coverage! My only concern was the color- it was a medium but it was a tad “light” for me even though I’m a light-medium. However, it’s not that noticab;e once I put foundation on.
Below is my May look- very simple but with a bright bold lip color. I believe I used the Urban Decay Lipstick in 69 underneath the BareMinerals Moxie Lipstick which made it a very pretty pink.
