Ipsy's May Glam Bag
Good morning! I hope your day is shaping up, as I know mine is. Last week was an odd week, and today I finally feel normal, or at least what my version of normal feels like. Since things are feeling business-as-usual, it's high time that I shared my Ipsy Glam Bag for May before my June one arrives!
The bag and it's contents. Nature Girl instantly fell in love with this cute little ice cream bag. We made a deal that if she kept her room clean for the rest of the month, that I'd give it to her. We'll see how well she's able to accomplish this! Anyway, this month's theme is getting ready for Summer.
Here are the contents of the bag.
First up is Briogeo's Rosarco Milk. It's an intensive leave-in conditioning spray. I don't have much occasion to use such a product, but on the rare chance that I might go swimming this year, I feel that this would be a good product to use after washing out the chlorine. For those of you who need ultra-conditioning, this might be more for you. Still, I'm eager to try it!
This is Mellow's Creamy Matte Lipstick in Nude. It's a beautiful matted pinkish color, which seems to be one of the typical colors I get from Ipsy. This one has the logo imprinted on the actual lipstick itself...see it? (Sorry, the background I chose for this shoot takes away from the actual color.)
Adesse of New York has passed along a gel effect nail polish in a light turquoise kind of color called Surfer Girl. I don't usually wear this kind of color as I shy away from pastels, but I'll try it at least once. If I'm not fond of it, NG will be more than happy to take it off my hands.
Next up is Superhero's Voluminous Mascara in a sample size. I tried some out yesterday morning in fact, and it really did make it seem like I could almost be wearing falsies.
Last, but not least, is Urban Decay's 8-hour powder highlighter. I've recently started playing around with highlighters a little and, while I'm still not going to be an everyday highlighter, I can see the value in highlighting one's face for special occasions. What I mean by that is that I love to wear makeup, and I do so nearly every day, however, I have an everyday look, and a look for special occasions. I don't feel the need to go all out every single day of the week.
And there you have it, another month of Ipsy's Glam Bag. It's still the best value on the block (if you're truly into makeup), and all the information about them can be found on www.ipsy.com.
