TGI freaking F! :)
Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service. For just $10 per month you get 4-6 deluxe sized beauty samples and sometimes even full sized products. Everything comes in a cute little makeup
bag which is different each month.
The theme for May's bag is "Fresh Picks" and the bag is a cloth material with a pretty leaf design.
Ok, let's get the worst over with...
Avene Thermal Spring Water - full size $12.50
How is this even a real thing? It's water in a can. Seriously. Ladies and gentlemen, please don't fall for this. Ipsy, please don't put such nonsense in our bags ever again.
Pacifica Eye Shadow Duo 1 - not sure of the price
I read/saw on beauty blogs and Youtube that these shadows aren't pigmented and the case breaks easily. Real thanks Ipsy. I'll see if one of my sisters or a friend wants this.
Hang Ten Sunscreen SPF 50 - full size $12.99
To me sunscreen is something that we all have to have. It's not a "treat" or something that I get excited for. In my honest opinion, getting sunscreen is about as fun as getting toothpaste. That said, at least I can use this.
There were 2 decent items in this month's bag...
The Olive Refreshing Rosemary Lip Balm - $5.95
This is a nice soft lip balm. The rosemary flavor/scent is a bit weird but overall I like it.
Eva-NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask - $12
I enjoy receiving hair masks because I'm still on the hunt for one that works best for my hair. I look forward to trying this.
BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Light it Up - $18
I was able to cash in some Ipsy points for this lipstick. I loved the mini one I got in a previous Ipsy bag and I also love this one. It's soft and creamy and very bright. This lipstick has really neat casing as well.
I apologize if this was a downer of a post but the May Ipsy bag was super lame in my opinion. Water in a can? Come on! But I promise, usually Ipsy bags are much more fun with more makeup products. I've discovered so many great products that I never would have without Ipsy. If you'd like to sign up, you can do so HERE.
What did you think of your bag this month?
I apologize that this is the second week without a "Frugal Friday" post but I've been trying to catch up since going away. We'll go back to regular programming next week! :)
