May Ipsy Glam Bag

Today I am going to share with you what I received in my Ipsy Glam Bag for the month of May. This month's theme is Jetsetter and the bags are from Breakups to Makeup.

For those of you who are not real familiar with Ipsy here's a little breakdown of what it is...Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription that you sign up for. It costs $10 a month and they bill you on the first of the month every month. Shipping usually starts around the middle of the month and they start giving out little sneak peeks of what is all going to be in the bags for the month. They start the sneak peeks around the first of the month and you can see those on their Facebook and Instagram pages. Right around the 10th or 12th of the month they open up your "Glam Room" and it will show you what you will be getting in your bag. You get roughly 5 products in your bags and the items they choose for you are somewhat based on the beauty quiz you take when you sign up. Each product is usually a deluxe sized sample and at least one of the items is full sized. You can re-take the quiz at any time if you are not satisfied with the types of products you are getting. Your products are packed inside a cute little make-up bag that is designed for the theme for the month. If you are interested in signing up I will give you my link here. Check out this link for more information and to sign up.

As always included with your bag is a little card with the theme on it and either has more information about the theme, the Ipsy beauty vloggers, or inspirational quotes. This month the theme is Jetsetter and the bag is so cute. It is a canvas bag with the signature Ipsy zipper pull and I love the print on it..."Contents: My Life" which is what most women carry in their makeup bags, lol!

The first item I got in my bag this month is probably my favorite out of all of it. I received the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil + BONUS Revolution High Color Lipgloss. This liner is a long lasting waterproof liner that glides on smoothly to prime and define your lips for a long lasting lip color and clean lines. I have been wanting this pencil for quite some time and now I have a deluxe sample of it to try out. Also included with the pencil were 2 little blister packs of the new Revolution High Color Lipglosses in the shades Bittersweet and Failbait for us to try out. I had heard these were coming out and I was so excited to try them out first. I will say that I loved the lipgloss samples so much that I went out and bought some of them at Ulta (I'll have a post up on those soon).

The next item I got was the Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil in the shade Tantalizing Taupe. I have not tried this one out yet but I will try it soon, lately I've been using tinted brow get on my brows but I really want to see how this works for my brows. The pencil seemed to glide smoothly and have a creamy consistency. It is a mechanical pencil which I love because sometimes I hate sharpening wooden pencils, the tips usually break off or crumble so mechanical is always nice to have. This was a full sized product.

Then 3rd item I got was the Peter Lamas Detoxifying Citrus C Facial Cleanser. I have tried this once so far and I was pleased with the way it cleansed my skin. Plus since I have sensitive skin I was worried that my skin would react badly to it but I had no reaction at all and it left my skin feeling soft, smooth, and clean. It did not have a harsh scent so that was nice too. This has a purifying blend of Chamomile, Coconut, and Alba Bark combined to lock in moisture. It is 100% Vegan, paraben-free, and sulfate-free.

The 4th item I received was the Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Tapered Blending Eye Brush 205. I love this brush, it's so soft and pretty. I got another brush in my Ipsy bag from this company a couple months ago, it was an angled powder brush or something for your face and I absolutely love it so when I seen I was getting this one I was excited. This brush is 100% Animal Cruelty Free and it is made with high quality synthetic hair bristles that are super soft. It is also coated with a revolutionary antibacterial solution for minimal brush cleaning. I have used this brush a little and I am in love with it!!

The last item I got was the CoTZ Face Natural SPF 40. I have not tried this out yet so I can't say how it feels on, how well it works, or if it has a good scent or not. It is a weightless formula that will leave your skin feeling silky, smooth, and non-greasy. It is 100% free of oils, chimical sunscreens, preservatives, fragrances, oils, parabens, PABA, gluten, and Phythalates. Some people say because it is tinted and has a matte finish that it works well under your makeup and could be used like a primer. I just haven't tried it out yet so I can't comment on my opinions on all that yet.

Overall I love this bag and everything I got in it. I really am blown aways most months on the quality of the products that we get in our bags for as little as $10!! It is a nice little treat to myself every month!!
