Ipsy is a monthly subscription service that introduces customers to new hair and beauty products. This month’s theme is Destination Chic, makes me want to go on a road trip in the warmer weather.  Fotor_146361719914563_resizedI love the design of this month’s bag, it has an envelop style closure and the print has different landmarks on it. So travel inspired.

1.Nots Acne Pore Deep Cleanser

Sometimes Ipsy disappoints and sends me a product that is not geared for my skin. I’m positive that I never put acne prone skin in my profile yet somehow this landed in my bag. This is a Korean makeup and skincare line that uses organic ingredients. This helps clean pores and hydrate skin. It sounds really great, I just wish it was made for my skin type. I know a few people who could use this so I’ll pass it along to them.

2.Mellow Matte Lipstick in Nude 

This is such a pretty colour. More nudes! More nudes! I’ve become so obsessed with them lately. This looks to be a nude on a berry tint which is going to be really pretty for this season.

3.Jersey Shore Spa Moisture Rich Hydrating Balm in Lavender

I haven’t opened this yet, but I’ve never come across a lip balm in Lavendar so I’m very intrigued. I love that this is made by a family owned company that makes products free of harsh chemicals, non-toxic, eco-friendly and are baby-safe.

4. Aurora Gel Effect Nail Laquer in Safety Orange

This orange is super neon and bright. I didn’t think I was going to like it until I put it on one nail. It’s so in your face and fun that I am totally going to rock it on my toes with sandals this summer. I did one coat on my nail and it was super pigmented and felt very gel-like. It was also very chip resistant. They have great range of colours, I’d be interested in trying more from this line.

5.Smashbox X-Rated Mascara

I was completely out of mascara so I went to the drug store and bought two. Now after my Ipsy Unboxing and Genbeauty I have 7! So many to use up. This mascara is designed to be layered, you can start off with one layer for a natural look but then build it up for more drama. I’m really loving it.

My Thoughts

Ipsy was pretty good this month, minus the acne wash. I know I will use the other 4 items I received. Total value: $56.00!

Did you get Ipsy this month? What was in your glam bag?

Lots of Love,

Dal

  1. Oh your bag is pink instead of purple – I’ve only seen the purple version. Cute!
    Ooh that lipstick does look really pretty. The packaging is nice too.
    Not sure how I feel about lavender on my lips, to be honest. I prefer fruity or dessert type scent / taste for lip products!
    I bet that bright polish would look amazing on your toes! With a tan!
