Ipsy May 2013 Glam Bag: Spring Fling
Got my Ipsy Glam Bag over Mother's Day weekend and it turns out Mary and I got the exact same one! It was a pretty good bag this month :)
This bag's theme was "Spring Fling" and this month's bag was the cutest bag I've received so far. I currently use it as my travel makeup-bag that I keep in my purse.
Zoya Nail Polish in Piaf (full-size, value: $8). Buy any 2 bottles and get 1 free + Free 1oz Remove+ & $5 Shipping at zoya.com/ipsy. Enter code ipsyz at checkout.
I was so very excited to get a Zoya polish, but less excited when I saw the color. I know a lot of people like Piaf, but I'm not a fan. It's a good polish though (got an A- from Temptalia), so I might keep it around in case I change my mind.
yaby concealer refill in buff (full-size, value $4.85). Receive 20% off your purchase at camerareadycosmetics.com. Enter code ipsyluvsyabycc20 at checkout.
I was initially underwhelmed by this product. What am I going to do with a concealer refill? I can't put it in my mini magnetic compact because the powder shadows will get all over it. And I feel like it will dry out really quickly. But, hey, I'm always on the lookout for a new, awesome concealer, so it couldn't hurt to give this one a try...
Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss in Pink (deluxe sample, value: $7.50). Receive 20% off any purchase of $30 or more at juicebeauty.com/ipsy. Enter code IPSY20 at checkout.
Another great product in my Ipsy bag, a pretty lip gloss! I actually haven't bought any new lipgloss in a while so it's really nice to have a new one. Not too much to say about this, but I'm really glad I got it.
Pacifica Island Vanilla Perfume Roll-On (full-size, value: $12). Receive 20% off your purchase at pacificaperfume.com. Enter code Beauty20 at checkout.
Anyone else LOVE roll-on perfumes? I love Pacifica and I'd seen their roll-on perfumes around at Target but hadn't purchased any yet. Island Vanilla is the perfect way to describe this smell. Another word is YUMMY. It smells so wonderful! I love to have this in my purse for when I feel like I need a little pick-me-up. :)
Pacifica Coconut Crushed Pearl Luminizing Body Butter (deluxe sample, value: $6) Receive 20% off your purchase at pacificaperfume.com. Enter code Beauty20 at checkout.
I was thrilled to pull out a SECOND Pacifica product from my Ipsy bag and double thrilled that it was a body butter since I've finished the Tuscan Blood Orange body butter I got in January's bag. When I first opened it, I noticed the smell right away. It smells so yummy! And then? And then I put the lotion on. It's what I like to call "twilight lotion" because it makes you go all sparkly. Yuck. Not a fan. Maybe my 7-year-old niece might like it...
$110 off Hair Styling Tools and Hair Extensions + Free Thermal Pouch with Purchase from NuMe.
So, I wasn't super excited about this gift certificate. But, then again, I got five great products in my bag, so it wasn't like I felt cheated either. After checking out the site, I actually may consider using this. However, If I don't, I'll let you all know and give my promo code away. It doesn't expire until November 30, 2013, so there is a lot of time. :)
