May Ipsy Bag - Spring Fling





 I just received my May Ipsy Bag with the theme of "Spring Fling". For the first time, Ipsy had lots of of options for what you received. This month, Ipsy partnered with nine brands: NuMe, Macadamia, St. Tropez, Zoya, Anastasia, Pacifica, Juice Beauty, Mirabella, and Yaby. If you aren't familiar with Ipsy, you can click here to read my "My Thoughts on Ipsy" post. In short though, Ipsy is monthly subscription service that sells for $10/month. Each month you receive 4-5 beauty product samples, deluxe samples, and full size items. Ipsy hasn't updated their "glam room", so I can't share the coupon codes yet, but I hope to update this post with them eventually.

 Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow - Glitter Rock - Full Size - $20

When I got my tracking info for May's bag, I was informed that I was getting a bonus item, for being "active on the Ipsy community and creating content". I'm not sure when I was ever active on Ipsy's site, but I wasn't going to say no to an extra goody. I was delighted to see this eyeshadow in my bag! I was hoping to receive a different shade, but I'm still excited to try one of these glittery shadows. I've been lusting after them ever since I was Temptalia's post about them.

The Claims:
You’ve never seen a sparkly shadow this sophisticated. Moondust is dazzlingly sparkly but with a super refined, incredibly sophisticated feel (and not a single speck of chunky glitter). Microfine bits of iridescent sparkle collide with intense, dreamy hues and lush, 3-D metallics—for an effect that’s out of this world. 

 Mirabellla Colour Sheer Lipstick - Posy - Full Size - $22

I wasn't too excited about this product, I don't really need another lipsticks, and I've had really mixed experiences with the other two Mirabella products I've received in Ipsy bags. However, I really like it. The shade is pretty and not as sheer as the name would imply. The formula is very comfortable on the lips, so I may be more impressed than I initially though I'd be. 

The Claims:
Beautifully sheer lip color to wear all day and night. Mango butter base nourishes lips. Available in a wide range of fashionable shades. Lead-free; Paraben-free.
Yaby Concealer Refill - Buff - Full Size - $4.85

Not super thrilled by this concealer. The consistency is nice, but the shade isn't great for me. While it's not totally off, it is a little bit too dark. Yaby claims that the shade Buff is neutral, but it comes up quite yellow on me. We'll see how it works out. 

The Claims:
creamy texture, extremely easy to apply. 
» highly pigmented to correct any imperfection on the face and body, creamy and gentle for around the eyes.
» tear proof! a concealer that won't run away with your tears.
» vegan friendly - contains no animal byproducts.
 St. Tropez One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion - Deluxe Sample - About $9 (Full size $18)

This is kinda my disappointment in the bag. If you haven't noticed in my swatch photos, I'm incredibly pale. The palest, some would say. I like being pale, and I don't really want to try self tanners. However, I'll be heading back to Australia in a few months and I probably should get a bit of color on me so I don't get too many stares. What I do like about this St. Tropez product, the only thing about it that makes me willing to try it, is that it washes off. 

The Claims:
This lightweight cream simply smoothes on to give you an instant, even, beautifully golden tan that will wash off whenever you choose. Simply smooth on from top to toe using your palms, an Applicator Mitt or latex gloves for maximum, even coverage.
Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss- Pink - Full Size - $14

Juice Beauty is a brand that was introduced to me by Ipsy in their MyGlam days. We've gone on to have a love/hate relationship. I've tried a handful of Juice Beauty skincare items, but this is the first makeup item I've tried. The packaging for this gloss is pretty simple but attractive. I like the color, its sheerer than it looks in the tube. I think this is my favorite product in the bag, aside from the Urban Decay shadow. 

The Claims:
This Reflecting Gloss will give your lips the most brilliant shine on earth. The combination of antioxidant-rich berries, minerals and sweet agave will wrap your lips in radiant color.
 Zoya Nail Polish - Blu- Full Size - $8.

Zoya is another one of my love/hate brands. Some of their polishes are the best I've ever tried, and others just won't stay on. I'm not sure how Blu is going to work out for me. I don't know if I love the milky, pastel blue shade, but I'm willing to try it out. 

The Claims:
Zoya Nail Polish in Blu can be best described as a full-coverage, soft and delicate pale baby blue with a glossy creme finish. A dreamy, calming blue that's both fun and flattering on the nails.
Swatches. 

On top of the 5 full size products and one deluxe sample, we also received a $110 Gift Certificate for NuMe styling products. 

Total Value of my May Ipsy Bag:
~$77.85
+$110 Gift Certificate.

Not bad at all, it definitely makes up for the last two months which were kind iffy.

  2. I am super excited about this month's bag! This will only be my second one, but I like what I got last month.
    I absolutely love all of the Zoya polishes that I own, and I was super excited to be getting one this month!

    1. This was my 10th month with Ipsy! What did you get in your bag?

      Delete
    2. I got the NuMe finishing serum, the Pacifica body butter, the same lipgloss and concealer as you got, and my Zoya was in the cream shade, Jacqueline, which is slightly frustrating, 'cause my mom literally just yesterday bought the same color.

      Oh well, I love the gloss so far!

    3. Sounds like a solid bag. I'm a little jelly of your Pacifica body butter tbh. That sucks about the nail polish, but that's the risk you take with subscription services. I'm also loving the gloss! *highfive*
