Ipsy Bag | May 2013

May’s Ipsy bag has to be one of my favourite bags to date! It was colourful and full of products I love! Shall we see what was inside? I’m sure most of you know already what was in May’s bag, but the consistent blogger in me wants to show you anyway!

Pacifica | Perfume Roll-On in Island VanillaDSC_0135

Island Vanilla: Inspired by the unique magic of Tahitian vanilla, this sensual blend sets sweet and sultry vanilla absolute, with honey-jasmine notes and a touch of fruitiness, against a deep and beautiful base of tea.

Thoughts: I love vanilla and this is vanilla with a “beachy feel” to it. It smells wonderfully sweet and warm and a rollerball? Perfect for my beach bag!

Full size: 10mL/$12.00

Zoya Nail Lacquer | PiafDSC_0136

Zoya Nail Polish and Treatments puts beauty, fashion and style into every bottle with innovative custom color creations and fashion trend adaptation resulting in a truly luxury cosmetic experience. Created with the finest quality pigments and finishes, each bottle of Zoya is as special and unique as the woman who created it and whose name graces every bottle – Zoya herself! The award-winning, ultra long-wearing Zoya formula is also vegan friendly and Big5Free*

Thoughts: I LOVE Zoya polishes and actually don’t own this colour which is awesome!! Piaf is a beautiful shimmery yellow and although yellows tend to look sallow on me, I’m hoping the extra bit of shimmer saves me!

Full size: 15mL/$8.00

Pacifica | Coconut Crushed Pearl Luminizing Body ButterDSC_0137

Coconut Crushed Pearl Luminizing Body Butter: Treat, enhance and illuminate. This Body Butter – full of crushed pearls, minerals and ultra-nourishing phytonutrients - leaves skin hydrated, youthful, gorgeous and glowing. Coconut oil, tropical extracts, antioxidants and sea minerals hydrate and nourish.

Thoughts: Attractive packaging for sure! I don’t use shimmery body lotions all the time, but for summer I definitely make an exception! This is paraben-free and having looked at all of the ingredients, this body butter is chock full of vitamin e , a and c (anti-aging) and many fruit extracts. I totally look forward to using this!

Full size: 58mL/$7.00

Juice Beauty | Reflecting Gloss in PinkDSC_0138

This exclusive, pre-launch of the Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss will give your lips brilliant shine while keeping them healthy and nourished. A combination of antioxidant-rich acai and goji berries, natural minerals and sweet agave nectar that will give your lips radiant color! Made with certified organic ingredients.

Thoughts: Firstly, this lipgloss smells citrusy so mmmmm! This is a colour that I would actually wear as I love lip products with purple in them.

Full size: 0.28oz/$15.00

I received: 0.14oz/$7.50

yaby | Concealer Refill in BuffDSC_0139

yaby concealers have a creamy texture and are extremely easy to apply. They are highly pigmented to correct any imperfection on the face and body, are creamy and gentle for around the eyes and are tear proof! Vegan friendly and contains no animal byproducts.
The heavy duty metal reusable pans are designed to be sturdy and not easily warped - sanitize empty pans with alcohol and keep some for other special beauty mixing needs!

Thoughts: I do like that we’re getting to try a number of different products from yaby and that the magnetic palette that was given to us in the March Ipsy Bag is filling up nicely! This creamy concealer is a great brightener for my undereyes, but too light for any other areas on my face.

Full size: $5.16?

*BONUS* Urban Decay | Moondust Eye Shadow in Glitter RockDSC_0140

Moondust is dazzlingly sparkly but with a super refined, incredibly sophisticated feel (and not a single speck of chunky glitter).
New technology gives Moondust an amazing effect not found in traditional pressed-powder shadows. It feels like a cream but goes on like a powder to create a smooth, brilliantly reflective look. The result? Sexy, twinkling sparkle with a ton of depth and movement. (And a LOT of questions about what you’re wearing!)

Thoughts: I was over the moon when I saw this in my Ipsy bag! This was a bonus for being an active member in the Ipsy community! There are seven gorgeous shades to choose from and I have been patiently waiting for them to arrive at my Shoppers so I can get points for them! You can see how sparkly and intense the colour payout is in the swatch!

Wasn’t this Ipsy bag so amazing?!! I loved each and every item inside! Even without the bonus Urban Decay eye shadow, I still think this bag is something I would enjoy. Each product blends perfectly with the others!

  1. AH Urban Decay!!! I still wish my SDM would get UD so I can get points too!
    I tried the Piaf and it isn't to bad. At first I wasn't to excited on the colour but the shimmer is what makes it.
    This is like the best week because Ipsy and Topbox both show up!

    1. The pouch is kind of padded too, so things will stay relatively protected inside. Haha, I will enjoy it for sure! Especially that eye shadow!
