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!

IMG_4012

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 ūüė¶
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 Рkind 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 ūüôā

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 – March

Ipsy is a subscription service for $10 that offers deluxe-sized samples of beauty items.
Many times you will receive full size items as well.
Unlike some of these services Ipsy sends the same thing to every member.

March’s Theme: The Great Escape

ipsy1

Cute bag! ¬†Let’s check out the rest!

ipsy2

Glam RX Freestyle Pallet
Retail $16.50 (with make up) – Sample Value Approx. $5.00

Glam RX only offers a pallet with make up in – this was specially made for Ipsy.

ipsy3

Yaby Eyeshadows in Azalea and Seashell
Full Size (not joking)
Retail $3.15 each –¬†Sample Value $6.30

These are actually very pretty.
I have read Yaby plans to team up with Ipsy in the future – so the Glam RX pallet will come in handy!

ipsy4

LA Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipes – 8 count
Retail and Sample Value $1.99

These will come in handy when we go on vacay this summer – but nothing to get too jazzed about.

ipsy5

Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist
1 oz
Retail $22 for 6.75 oz – Sample Value $3.25

This spray feels lovely and I can’t wait to use it this summer when the weather gets blazing hot. ¬†It has Ylang-ylang in it which is a scent you either love or hate – not much in between. ¬†Fortunately my hubby and I like it!

Total Value for my March Ipsy bag – $16.54

I have to note that Ipsy was kind of crucified for this bag in many blogs.  Which is unfortunate because it was still a good value.
