May Ipsy Bag

April's ipsy bag was a huge miss for me. But for May? I am surprised at all the items I received and on top of that, every item is FULL SIZE. If you guys don't know, Ipsy is a $10 subscription box that you receive monthly and this months box is worth $53.56! Honestly, you cannot beat this. I can't say that their bags in every month will be as awesome as this one, but if you want to try it out... just sign up with this link.

Macadamia Hair Oil 1oz retail $13.50 // I have been wanting to try this for the longest time... I think it has popped up in Birchbox sometime last year, but I always got pretty unlucky with them. So, when I opened my bag, I was screaming with joy! I used it the same night I received the bag and I have to say, my hair is incredibly soft, shiny but not in a greasy way. The only thing I dislike is the scent. You would think it would have a sweet nutty scent, but it just smells like overpowering men cologne... not even the smelly good kind.

Zoya Polish in Jacqueline ZP654 retail $8.00 // Their website describes this polish as "perfect magnolia nude cream. This light creamy beige has slight warm undertones and a glossy creme finish. Originally created as a custom runway shade for fashion designer Peter Som." In my opinion? This color reminds me of a cup of coffee after you put a sh*t ton of cream in it. Or almond milk. The color itself is incredibly boring... very plain vanilla. It's very streaky when applying and I had to put 4 coats on which is way too much. After wearing it for a day, the color isn't that bad, but I think it would look amazing against girls with a tan/darker skin tone.

Pacifica Roll-on Perfume in Tahitian Gardenia retail $12.00// I personally love Pacifica items because they do not do animal testing, animal ingredients, FD&C color, phthalates, parabens, sulfates, propylene glycol, benzene, GMOs, mineral oil, petroleum, peanut oil, triclosan, and other ingredients you do not want on your skin. I'm not a huge huge fan of gardenia mainly because the scent can be pretty overpowering, but I just put on a little bit and the scent is very clean, floraly with citrus tones. It's very delicate and so far I am loving it!

Yaby Concealer Refills in cc008 Buff retail $5.06 // Can you believe this itty bitty thing is actually full size? I tested this product out and the color is a little light for my skin tone and it was a little cakey for my eye area.

Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss in Champagne retail $15.00 // Another product that I have wanting to try. I actually do not like lip gloss or wear lip gloss, BUT this one is a huge hit for me. The color is light and will go great over any color lipstick. Also, it's not super sticky, which is a huge plus. On top of all of that, it's also organic.


  1. Whyyyy did I cancel!!! I am kicking myself now!

    1. Haha Like most subscription services, this may be a one hit wonder. I'm definitely looking forward to May Glossybox though! Has yours shipped?
