May 2016 Ipsy Unboxing


It's that time of month again, when a pink package arrives on my doorstep and as always I can't wait to open it up and share with you. By now, I'm sure you know what a monthly subscription box is, there are so many good ones out there! Everything from healthy snacks, jewelry, to beauty and makeup related boxes. Ipsy is a personalized beauty and makeup monthly subscription. Every month, they send a pink package that arrives with a themed small makeup pouch and five full size or deluxe sample sized products. It's only $10 a month and the overall value of the bag is always more, which is a win in my book. This month, the theme is Destination Chic. The makeup pouch itself is super cute, it has destinations from all over the world printed all over it. I think it's adorable and I loved the fact that I received the pink one, they also had blue and purple. Inside were five beauty and makeup products that I couldn't wait to get my hands on. Here's what I received:

May Ipsy

01. Formula 10.0.6 // Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask
Face masks are always my favorite beauty product to receive since I'm always looking to try new ones. This one claims to clarify your skin. It is packed with berry boosters that unclog pores while strawberry and rosemary work to eliminate impurities. I can't wait to wind down tonight with a cup of tea and this mask.

02. Hanalei // Lip Treatment
I just tried this lip treatment after having really dry lips for a few days and it is incredible. It is filled with nut and grapeseed oil plus agave and antioxidants. My lips felt completely moisturized and rejuvenated as soon as I put this on.

03. Pacifica // Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow Trio
I'm definitely excited to try this eye shadow trio. The colors are exactly what I look for in eyeshadows, subtle but still shimmery and pretty. They're also 100% vegan and cruelty free. Always a plus.

04. Aurora // Gel Effect Nail Polish
The color I received is called Old School Pink. A few years ago, I would have been all over it. I used to love hot pinks and brighter colors. Now a days, I like to stick to neutral and lighter toned manis. Although, now thinking about it.. this would be perfect for a fun summer pedi!

05. Smashbox // X-Rated Mascara
I have always loved getting sample sized mascara in my Ipsy bags. I like to use them on my lower lashes to create definition and volume. I haven't tried this one yet but I'm very excited to. It's also a great size to throw in your purse, which I might just do.

I'm really excited to try all of these products this month. I am also loving the fact that everything is pink and matches! So silly right? lol Overall, I'm so happy with what I received and I can't wait to try everything! If you're not yet subscribed to Ipsy but would like to, click here to sign up.
