Ipsy Glam Bag - May

Another month brings a new bag from Ipsy!

This months theme was Spring Fling.

The bag is a super cute blue, teal, white and orange chevron pattern. 

The first item I pulled out of the bag was NuMe Finishing Serum. 
This light, greaseless, and humidity resistant formula delivers a straight-up glossy finish. NuMe Finishing Serum protects your hair from environmental and physical stress, treating split ends and sealing hair with added, brilliant shine. Our advanced formula is made with lightweight silicones, vitamins, and an antioxidant designed to tame fly-aways and frizz. Say no to static styles and frizzy ‘fros! Hello smooth and shiny styles! 

The next item smells heavenly and is a Tahitian Gardenia Perfume roll-on from Pacifica.
Tahitian Gardenia: This heady, vintage-inspired blend showcases the sacred Gardenia bloom, a symbol of love, unity, grace and strength. It's sweet, smooth and slightly citrusy aroma is reminiscent of Jasmine, Sweet Orange and Tea Leaves. 

The next item is a Colour Sheers Lipstick by Mirabella in the color Daydream.
Hydrate and nourish lips while depositing beautifully translucent color for the perfect pout. Available in a wide-range of fashionable shades. Lead-free; Paraben-free. 

The second to last item was a concealer by Yaby Cosmetics in Pecan.
yaby concealers have a creamy texture and are extremely easy to apply. They are highly pigmented to correct any imperfection on the face and body, are creamy and gentle for around the eyes and are tear proof! Vegan friendly and contains no animal byproducts. 

The last item was a nail polish by Zoya in the color Blu.
Zoya Nail Polish and Treatments puts beauty, fashion and style into every bottle with innovative custom color creations and fashion trend adaptation resulting in a truly luxury cosmetic experience. Created with the finest quality pigments and finishes, each bottle of Zoya is as special and unique as the woman who created it and whose name graces every bottle – Zoya herself! The award-winning, ultra long-wearing Zoya formula is also vegan friendly and Big5Free*.

This was a really good month. I love all of the products and cannot wait to use them. 

Until next time,

April Ipsy Glam Bag

I fail as a blogger. My updates are so far and few between, it's sad. Oh well, at least I have my monthlies to talk about when they pop into the mail box.

I actually received my glam bag for April back on the 10th.

This months theme was Pretty in Pink. Loved the theme seeing as pink is one of my favorite colors (purple being my ultimate favorite).

The bag itself is an off white with hot pink trim. 

The first product in the bag was the Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal. As described on the website: Sexy Hair Soy Renewal is the nourishing styling treatment with multiple benefits! Speeds up blow drying time, nourishes and protects hair, and enhances shine. Made with Moroccan Argan Oil, Soy Renewal addresses moisture, frizz, smoothness, elasticity and shine concerns, while protecting against heat and environmental stresses.

The next product was MICABEAUTY Mineral Eyeshadow in Earth.
MicaBeauty Mineral Eyeshadows are extremely gentle, free of preservatives, chemicals, dyes, talc, oils, and other fillers. With this unique formula, the eyeshadows will look ultra smooth and stay put for hours without creasing or pulling the delicate eye area. Can be mixed with clear lip-gloss, clear mascara, and clear nail polish to add pigment to lips, eyelashes and nails! 

Below are swatches with and without flash.

The next product was blush by Be A Bombshell. I received Beach Please.
A highly pigmented pressed powder blush that highlights the complexion and provides long lasting color. Can be used both as a blush or a bronzer. 

Below are swatches with and without flash.

The last item I received was Miss Professional Nail Sation Nail Lacquer in Love at first Byte. A very pretty and creamy orange/peach color. 
Sation Nail Lacquer is a contemporary beauty company, infusing a creative direction in nail care through a blend of lifestyle aesthetics. The collection features 120 colors from its seasonal & limited collections.

Until next time,
