May 2013 Ipsy Bag was paid for by me. I get nothing from them, I’m just a fan!
The May 2013 Ipsy bag was another good one. The theme was Spring Bloom, yet had a chevron bag. I thought that was strange, but I am kind of in love with the bag, so we’ll let it slide. I know what you’re saying, too:
“May’s Ipsy bag? But, ummm…isn’t it JUNE?”
Yes. Yes it is. I had a bit of a shipping issue with my May bag, and it was hung up at the post office a couple towns over for about 10 days. Anyway…
What was in the May 2013 Ipsy bag though?
A full sized Zoya nail lacquer. Squee, right? I received a great white/off-white shade called Jacqueline from the Lovely collection. White nail polish usually reminds me of white out, but the Zoya one was fabulous. Arv $8
Next up was a mini concealer from Yaby. I was not familiar with the brand. It’s just the pan, but you could place it in a magnetic compact and be good to go. The color was pretty good, and it covered well. I guess that’s what you want in a concealer, right? ARV $4.85
There was a full sized Reflecting Lip Gloss from Juice Beauty included. The color is called Fig, and it’s a great coppery neutral shade. It also smells like tangerines! Not a fake, overpowering smell, just a sweet, natural scent. MSRP $15
For the hair, there was a NuMe finishing serum in a 10ml size. While this sounds small, it will last for a really long time. This helps fight frizz, combat flyaways, and adds a glossy shine without being greasy. A 2 oz bottle retails for $29, so this breaks down to about $4.92
Finally, there was a travel size of St Tropez Instant Glow body lotion. I’m a little obsessed with self tanners this year, and I’m not really sure why. So this is perfect for me! It doesn’t smell bad, or artificial. As a plus, it washes off with soap & water. A 5 oz tube is $18, so the 1.69 oz tube clocks in around $6.
All in all, there were 2 full sized products from great brands, two travel sizes from good brands, and a concealer that I’m not sure if it’s full sized or a mini. PLUS the bag! Not including the bag, my value came to $38.85, for just $10 a month! I mean, you just can’t beat that. Not even with a stick. Wanna join Ipsy? Sign up here!
