Review: May Ipsy Glam Bag


May was my first ever Ipsy Glam Bag and I feel silly for never subscribing to the service before. I always had my eye on Birchbox when I should have been looking at Ipsy all along! After a month experimenting with the products in May's "Spring Fling" bag, here are my product reviews.


Yaby Concealer in "Honey"
I really enjoyed this concealer! I used it specifically under my eyes to help cover my under eye circles. I would first apply this and then add my Bobbi Brown Corrector on top. It gave me a really great awake look without looking cakey. The only negative to this concealer is it's packaging. I find myself fumbling with it every morning trying to get product.


Nume Finishing Serum
I have mixed feelings about this product. On the one hand I really do think it added shine to my hair and reduced frizz. However I can't stand the consistency. It's very similar to honey and gets everywhere quickly if you're not careful. It's a product I'll definitely keep using occasionally though.


Mirabella Colour Sheer Lipstick in "Daydream"
If you've watched some of my recent beauty videos then you'll know how head-over-heels I am with this lipstick! It's such an amazing color on the lips and is the most moisturizing lip product I've used in a really long time. I love the brand so much I ended up buying "Rapture," a deep red lipstick. It's a tad on the pricey side but you can find it cheaper on amazon.com rather than getting it from the actual website.


Zoya Nail Polish in "Jacqueline"
This cream/white nail polish was a really awesome addition to the Ipsy bag considering it retails around $8. So the bag just about paid for itself with this little guy. I'm not a huge fan of white nail polish, but it's a really solid consistency and applies nicely with two coats. It took forever to dry though and it doesn't steal me away from my love affair with China Glaze.


Pacifica Roll On Perfume in "Tahitian Gardenia"
This perfume is described as having, "gardenia, jasmine, orange flowers, and notes of tea leaves" and I just did not like it. This perfume is definitely not my cup of tea and I'll be giving it to my older sister shortly who said she liked the scent. 

Overall my first Ipsy bag was an amazing treat!! The only product that I really didn't like was the perfume just because it wasn't my style. Everything else was fantastic and I can't wait to see what else Ipsy has in store!
