Ipsy May 2015 Glam Bag and Theme card

I have been subscribed to Ipsy for over a year now and I am quite pleased with the service provided. I have a whole bunch of glam bags that I have received over the times being subscribed to Ipsy and I have tried and love majority of the products that I have received especially the brushes and exfoliants.

If you are not familiar with Ipsy. Ipsy is a monthly subscription box that sends you a glam bag filled with 4-6 deluxe and/or full-sized beauty products. Interested in Ipsy, then you can sign up here: http://bit.ly/1FjLrbJ. When you are signing up to Ipsy you will be asked a personalized quiz that will be used to select the products to be included within your monthly glam bag.

When Ipsy released the sneak peeks I was hoping especially for a specific glam bag since three bag was featured in our glam rooms for this month. Upon opening that pink envelope my wish came through eventually when I say the bag that I really wanted.

May Glam Bag theme entitled “Jetsetter” – vacation season
The bags featured are made by Angelique Velez, Breakups to Makeup and can be found on the official website, Sephora also have some limited edition bags for purchase. The bag is made from canvas looking material that has quirky products to empowering slogans designed on the front.
Products that I received in my May 2015 Glam Bag are:
Urban Decay Revolution High Color Lip Gloss (samples)
With these samples, you get to try the two shades provided before you commit to buy the full-size if you really like it. Instead of buying a full-size and in return you don’t like the shade etc. I am not a big fan of foil packets as it can get messy and there is little to no hope that you can save some for later.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Lip Pencil in Ozone (Price: $15)
The Glide-on Pencil goes on clear, acts as a primer used to make color last longer as well as defining the lips.

Luxie Beauty Tapered Blending Eye Brush 205 (Price: $12)
This blending brush came right on time. I recently bought the TooFaced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette, TooFaced Sugar Pop and the Anastasia Artist Palette, which means more eyeshadow blending. The Luxie Tapered Blending Eye Brush is very soft and it blends my eyeshadow evenly. This is my second Luxie brush, so I was not surprised. The brush is vegan-friendly, it has synthetic hair bristles that are coated with an antibacterial solution for minimal brush cleansing.

Bellapierre Gel Eyeliner in Ebony (Price: $14.99)
I was anxious to receive my glam bag when I saw this product in my glam room. I was thinking I can wear more wing liners on a day-to-day basis at work. Unfortunately, the tip of the line fell off in no time and I had to mold it back on so that I can get few uses from it. The eyeliner glides on smoothly, it doesn’t smudge and the shade is bold enough for me. It can also be sharpened with any standard makeup pencil sharpener. The Bellapierre Gel eyeliner is formulated with pure minerals, natural waxes and antioxidants making it hypoallergenic and safe for all skin types.

Amie Naturally Kind Morning Dew Matte Finish Moisturizer
I am currently on the search for any product that can help to keep my makeup matte right throughout the day and also helps to control sheen and oiliness. As soon as I got this in my Ipsy bag I immediately switched from my regular moisturizer. I used this moisturizer prior foundation application and it has helped a great deal while I am on the job. I am not a fan of doing touch ups during the day, so finding a product that really controls oil is a plus for me. This Amie moisturizer helps to control oil in my t-zone area throughout the day while keeping my skin hydrated.

Briogeo Rosarco Milk reparative leave-in conditioning spray
I used this Briogeo treatment on my freshly washed towel dried hair and there was little to no fallout. This product is made with rosehip, argan and coconut oils. Briogeo Rosarco Milk reparative leave-in conditioning spray works to protect hair against breakage, heat damage and UV exposure.
