Hi everyone! Wow, it has been a hot second since I blogged last! What a crazy couple of weeks I've had! Let me tell you, when you are a SAHM and your washer breaks, it is the end of the world! I feel like my whole schedule was thrown off because of this! So I apologize for not posting for a while, now that things are getting back to normal, I will be posting more content. Please leave me a comment below of things you wish I talk about or review, as it is my favorite thing to do!!! 

Now, let me get to business! Ipsy Bag!!
Seems like the theme for the month of May was world travel.

This is what I got on May 2016 bag! I really like the bag. I feel like it is so girly and "worldly". Also, I studied abroad in Italy and to see the Colosseum and the Leaning Tower of Pisa made me like it even more, and let's not forget it is PINK! Hello! So good job Ipsy!!! 

Here is a closer look at the cute bag:
 For the products I got I will say it I was pleased with them, and I do have one that I WILL purchase for sure! This time around I will leave the price of the full size products so you can know how much each product retails for. (Note to Ipsy, why don't you do that!! We would so appreciate it!)

INSPR 282 eye fluff  brush

I am a serious makeup brush hoarder so as usual I was happy when I got a brush. I like this brush. It is very small which will help with a precise application on the crease, inner corner and even maybe to blend eye shadows under the eyes when doing a smokey eye look. It is very soft and it picks product nicely. This brush retails for $12.00 and you can buy it here.

Mellow Matte Lipstick in the Shade Electro
The next product I got was the Mellow Matte Lipstick in the shade Electro. This lipstick is very pigmented. It looks like a very rich orange although on the stick it looks more bright red. Being a fan of orange lipsticks I like this product. It is creamy which I appreciate on a matte lipstick since I don't feel like my lips will fall off. Now, the staying power not so good. Also, you definitely need to use a lip liner or this will bleed outside your lips. This product retails for $13.00 and you can buy it here.

Formula 10.0.06 Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying mask
This was one of the meh products on the bag. I don't feel like I felt any real improvement on my skin after using it a couple of times. It claims to perfect troublesome young skin, so maybe my skin is just not that young. It might do better for 20 years old that do not have that much damage on their skin? The mask smells really good though, you can definitely smell the strawberry in it which I liked, and it applied nicely and didn't burn or made me break out. I just didn't see any results. This product retails for $6.99 and you can buy it here.

It Cosmetics No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in the shade Black.

This eyeliner was good just not wow. It does what it claims to do, it slides pretty nicely, does not tug, nicely pigmented and it is waterproof. It is good for tight lining since it will not go anywhere. The reason I would not buy it is because for an eyeliner I would look for something with a skinnier tip. Other than that it is fine. This product retails for $22.00 and you can buy it here.

The Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant Lip Balm
For me, this product was the star of the Bag. I loved it and will most certainly purchase it. I love this balm. I have been wearing it non-stop. I apply some before going to bed and also during the day. I have very chapped lips and since using this my lips have not chapped at all. Before using it, they were in pretty bad shape, they were cracked and bleeding, so I really feel like this healed them! Big huge plus! This was the first time I've heard of this brand but will definitely check their products. Not to mention, they are all natural! This product retails for $21.50 and you can buy it here.

So there you have it. That's my two cents on the products I got from Ipsy in May. I have to say, I am not to sure if I will continue my subscription with Ipsy, I like the products but I feel like I am getting more of the same every month. I have been thinking about switching to Boxycharm or FabFitFun. Let me know what your opinions are about them, and if you wish me to keep doing Ipsy reviews. 

Until next time, stay gorgeous!
