Ipsy – May

Wow Ipsy is shaking things up this month!!
They are introducing rewards for referrals
they are making the bags more personal based on your preferences.

Here is what I received in my bag this month.

May’s Theme: Spring Fling


So far so good!


Um, if you can’t tell by my blog colors – then let me clue you in…
I’m really digging the theme and colors!


Pacifica Coconut Crushed Pearl Luminizing Body Butter
Retail $24 for 8 oz or $7.00 for 2 oz (Sample Size)

This has a strong coconut smell that reminds me of suntan lotion.
I love the sparkle effect – it’s not over the top – but noticeable.


Yaby Concealer in ‘Buff’
Retail $4.85 for 3.5 g – Full Size Sample

Yep, this really is a full size sample.

Now that MAC is testing on animals – I have to find some new
concealer and foundation.

I kinda dig the idea of smaller sizes so the make up doesn’t get so germy.
The Buff color is too pale for my complexion 😦
I found the formula too creamy and pools – so it accentuates even the smallest crease.
Not ideal!


Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss in ‘Fig’
Retail $15.00 for .28 oz – Sample Value $7.50 for .14 oz

I love this gloss!!
Great color for the summer – kind of a rosy-bronzy color.  Great aroma!
Not sticky and VERY conditioning with no taste.
My hubby was impressed!


Zoya Professional Lacquer in ‘Blu’
Retail $8.00 – Full Size Sample

I was soooo excited to get a Zoya polish!!  Then I opened it…

Not really digging this color.  It’s more chalk grey with a hint of blue.
Looks like an ink pen dribbled into some White Out.

Update:  For S&G’s I tried this out.  Definitely got people to notice my toes!
My feet are VERY tan now – and it looks more baby blue.
But even my girlfriend said she first thought of White Out 🙂


NuMe Finishing Serum
Retail $29 for 2 oz/59 ml – Sample Value $4.92 for .33 oz/10 ml

I have not tried this yet.
I am in the middle of an Aveda product test so this will have to wait
a couple more weeks.

Total Value for my May Ipsy bag – $32.27

Ipsy – April

Wow!  Ipsy has rebounded from last month’s bag.
Many blogs posted disappointment with March’s offering – and they seem to have heard many of you out there!

April’s Theme: Pretty In Pink

Pretty In Pink

Hmmm… looking good so far – let’s look further!

Beach Please

Bombshell Blush in ‘Beach Please’
Retail $16.00 – Full Size Sample

Super bright pink!!
With the right touch and the right brush this will definitely give a rosy glow for spring.


Two Cosmetics Duo Eyeshadow in ‘Heartache’
Retail $5.75 – Full Size Sample

Kind of mixed feelings on this one.  Cool they are pretty colors – and it is full sized.
Sad they are supporting a rather sketchy company that looks at profit over safety.
Hopefully, these are actually safe for your eyes.

Soy Renewal

Sexy Hair Soy Renewal
Retail $21.95 for 4.2 oz – Sample Value $4.22

Yay – I just ran out of my Josie Maran sample so this is perfect timing!

of corset I'll call you

Sation Nail Lacquer in ‘Of Corset I’ll Call You’
Retail $5.00 – Full Size Sample

I never heard of Sation until now.  I am loving this nudey pink – it’s the first to go with my skin tone!
Bonus it is 3 Free – no DBP, Toluene or Formaldehyde and made in the US!

Total Value for my April Ipsy bag – $30.97

Some may not be big fans of pink but I do like this bag.
For those with edgy looks they may be surprised what they can do with these if they give them a try.
Besides, Pretty In Pink was one of my favorite movies 🙂
