Ipsy Unboxing // May 2017
Happy Friday, gals pals! I'm ending the week on a major sweet note here on the blog with an Ipsy unboxing. My Ipsy bag came just in time for the weekend with some pretty awesome beauty products in store. I've been doing these types of unboxings for quite some time now and you know why I like sharing them so much? Because every single one of my Ipsy glambags has always been different! I've never gotten a duplicate of a product before, which means I alway get to try out something new each month. In case you're not familiar with Ipsy, it's a beauty subscription that costs $10 a month and includes free shipping. Every month, they send a cute makeup bag filled with five deluxe sample and full sized beauty products. This is all packaged in a metallic pink bubble mailer that is delivered right to your doorstep. I love Ipsy because it's a relatively affordable way to try out and experiment with new beauty products every month. Want to see what I got in my May bag? Keep reading to find out (:
Pacifica // Island Life Eyeshadow Palette
Pacifica is one of those brands that I'll always love. They're relatively easy to find, hello Target! and they're all natural. This small palette comes with five different coconut infused mineral eyeshadows that are perfect for summertime. I love to keep my eye makeup neutral so this pallet is right up my alley. They swatch beautifully and I cannot wait to play with them this weekend.
Royal and Langnickel // Precision Angled Brush
Makeup brushes are always welcomed in my book! You can never have too many! This one by Royal and Langnickel is pretty dense with short angled bristles that would be perfect to contour the nose or even to apply concealer under the eyes, because no one wants creasy concealer!
Mellow Cosmetics // Creamy Matte Lipstick
I absolutely LOVE trying out new lipsticks. This one by Mellow Cosmetics is called Posh, a velvety smooth dusty pink shade. It dries off matte but feels creamy and moisturizing due to the fact that it is infused with Vitamin E. I love a good hydrating lipstick and I can't wait to try this on this weekend to see how long it lasts. Fingers crossed it's a good one! By the way, how gorgeous is that packaging right?
Manna Kadar Beauty // Radiance Split Pan Bronzer and Highlighter Duo
Okay, I'm not going to lie. I've been obsessed with all things Becca Cosmetics when it comes to bronzer and highlighter so I wasn't very excited to receive this sample. However, when swatched, the bronzer portion is very pretty, easily blendable, and not streaky at all.
Global beauty Care // Charcoal Wash Off Mask
When it comes to beauty products, I'm a huge believer of pretty packaging, so when I got my hands on this charcoal wash-off mask I was a little less than excited. I mean, a foil pouch is not too pretty to look at. I'm also a big believer in "don't judge a book by it's cover" so how would I know if the mask is actually a good one if I judge it by it's packaging and don't try it out first. I'm convinced that before I make my decision whether I like this mask or not, I need to try it out and that's exactly what I'm going to do tonight. Mask night and Netflix is in my future. Maybe some popcorn too!
This month, I'm really excited about the Island Life eyeshadow palette, the angled brush, and the lipstick! I already know I'm going to be wearing that lipstick all month long! The makeup bag itself is super cute too! It comes in an ice cream and popsicle print that is perfect for the beach or pool this upcoming summer season. Did you already receive your Ipsy glambag? What was in it?? I'd love to know! Want to get in on this monthly makeup action? Click here to sign up!
