Ipsy | May Glam Bag - Review

Before I get into my Ipsy glam bag review, can we just talk about the craziness that was MAC Aquatic launch yesterday morning? I was totally getting my sleep on at 6:50AM when they popped up but alas, Nordie's launch is next week and you best believe I'll be all over that! *emoji of a fist here* BAM! For those who were able to snag something, where do you live (kidding!) - what did you get!?

Anyway, onto my May Glam Bag! 

This month's theme is: Fresh PicksIt's a month of crisp air, vibrant flowers, and fresh Glam Bag products! Getting your beauty to bloom all month long will be as easy as lying in the warm grass and basking in the sunshine.

The Bag - Do I even need to explain? Definitely one of the cutest and higher quality bags Ipsy has come out with in awhile. The material is beige canvas with bright green leaves all over it. Definitely fits the "Fresh Picked" theme perfectly!

Avene Thermal Spring Water
SO excited to try a spring water spray! This spray has a unique composition that is supposed to soothe irritated skin, itchiness and sensitivity all while making your skin nice and soft. Pretty interesting! I haven't given this a go yet but plan on pretty soon because, well, it looks awesome. My mom says she used to use this when she was younger! 

Hang Ten Classic Sport SPF50 Sunscreen
This was great to have in this month's bag! A lightweight, water-resistant sunscreen? Sign me up! Sure, it might be just like any other SPF50 sunscreen, but it's always nice to have a smaller size to throw in your purse just in case! 

Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo in Celestial/Opal
Celestial is a cream colored iridescent that I didn't see coming. I had assumed it was just going to be a matte pink-toned cream. Surprise, surprise! Unfortunately, it was a little dry to work with but is gorgeous nonetheless. Opal is a shimmery copper and was a little softer to work with. Color pay off was fab as long as you patted it on. Both are infused with coconut.


Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask
So I haven't tried this yet, but from what I read about it, it seems pretty sweet. This mask is supposed to deep condition, repair and strengthen dry and damaged hair (OH HEY THAT'S ME!). This contains Argan Oil (SA-WOON!) to nourish and revitalize your hair while Keravis Protein (no clue what Keravis is but protein is always good) to increase your hair's elasticity and strength. Pretty stoked to try this baby out and let you guys know how it goes!

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer in Medium/Deep
Even though I already have this, it was still a nice surprise to find in my bag! The Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer is perfect for contouring with as well as using as an all-over bronzer because, well, it's matte. It's this amazing shade of brown that never makes me look orange nor muddy whether I'm tanned or not. It just works for most skin tones. The best part of all? It's made with cocoa powder, guys! So if you're wondering if it smells like a chocolate bar or not, it totally does.

Overall: I'm absolutely in love with this month's bag! It had a great mix of skincare and makeup. The bag itself is absolutely adorable. My favorite products would definitely have to be the Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray and the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer!

  1. So interesting to see what others get. My bag was quite different from yours except for the Hang Ten sunscreen. I got different shades of the Pacifica, and I haven't tried them yet. I liked the springy fabric of the bag, but for me this month was meh

  4. I think the only exciting thing about this bag is the too faced. I guess that's a win though.

  8. You got a GREAT bag. I love that bronzer, and the Avene Eau Thermale Spray works great for diaper rash as well as for a makeup setting spray!

  10. I love the duochrome Pacifica eyeshadow, can't wait to play more with it. I'm excited to try the spray water, too - I saw a video of a MUA using a water like that to lightly spray their foundation brush so that it didn't absorb so much liquid foundation. I've been trying it with another spray, and it seems to work!
