This Glam Bag came in a little late but when I opened the package and saw the Ipsy bag – I fell in love! I love the design and how “organic” and green it looks. Then I didn’t care much about what’s inside, I just kept staring at the bag itself! Silly me, I know 🙂
Moving on to the content, I got:
Hang Ten Classic Sport SPF 50
Cannot say anything about this sunscreen since I am not into skincare. I know I’m bad since sunscreen is a must especially this time of the year but to me, I cannot get so excited with sunscreen. That being said, I saw few reviews saying that this broke them out. Kinda scared to try but I still did, didn’t break me out but it definitely doesn’t feel good. I would rather go to the drugstore and get a sunscreen that will perfectly match my skin and be comfortable with the way it will sit there. These Hang Ten sunscreen typically sells for $12.99 and I am hoping that ipsy WON’T send me more of these sunscreens!
Pacifica Mineral Eye Shadow Duo
When I tried swatching them several times, the shadows feel really dry and chalky. I actually used the two colours on my eyes and I had loaded up some eye shadow primer. It isn’t the best, but still is not the worst. This is the first time (I believe) I used this brand and since it is not crazy bad, I kinda wanna try more from their line. The colour that I got is I believe the Moonbeam and Unicorn (purply / pearly). I would be much much happier if I were to have the nude shades but oh well. This is a meh colour and an okay quality and for the life of me I could not find the price of this product!
Avene Thermal Spring Water
This is something I will keep in my purse especially this time of the year. I haven’t really used any water refresher but I have tried the Evian facial spray and that is good too – nothing special but still good. Retails for $18.00 at drugstore.com, I will much rather buy the Evian spray just to be refreshed for half the price, even cheaper when you get them in two’s. The Avene Thermal Spring Water though is very refreshing but so is water. There is definitely nothing special about this. Will I keep it? Yes. Will I keep using it? Yes. Will I repurchase? No.
No Frizz Organic Sesame and Lemongrass Balancing Oil
The name of the product is a mouthful and surprisingly, I love it! It definitely has a very soothing “spa-scent.” What I like about this product is it’s not too heavy and it doesn’t look greasy though your hair will look really shiny, silky and smooth. This is something I will consider repurchasing – maybe when I use up all my Chi Serum and Moroccan Oil. Definitely amazing and the smell, oh the smell, makes me wanna go to the spa and relax! I love love love this product! Product retails for $13.00 for a half ounce (travel size) and $25.00 for a full ounce.
Boo-Boo Cover Up: Medium Shade
I love this concealer and it feels really light! The colour is perfect and the coverage is great! I am so happy with this product and this is also something that I most probably will repurchase in the future. For $19.99 (10ml), I think this is a great value. It covered my dark spots and redness. It blends very easily either using your fingers or your favourite brush.
So my May Ipsy Glam Bag is a little so-so. I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it. I don’t care for skin care and stuff like that, I am all for make up , nail polish and maybe hair serum, so please Ipsy, please, hear me out! My bag is around $65.00 (without the Pacifica Duo Eye Shadow) and again, I want to try out more make up products Ipsy – please!
