Ipsy Glam Bag May 2014

It's that time again!!  I received my May Ipsy Glam Bag!!  If you don't know what Ipsy is, it's a monthly subscription package.  You sign up HERE for $10 a month and each month they send you 4 or 5 products in a nice make up bag!  It's great way to try new products!  You also get special deals on the products included so if you really love it and want to buy the full size or a different color you can! You take a quiz when you sign up and basically tell them what your style is, what coloring you have, and what types of products you are interested in and they send you things!  It's super fun!  So let's dive in and see what I got this month! 

First up is a moisturizer by Pur-lisse. It says for normal to dry skin. It says it's a hydra-balance moisturizer. It feels nice on my skin and there isn't really a smell to it.  Maybe a slight just plain lotion smell, but definitely does not have a fragrance.  I will use this and let you know when it's empty what I thought!

Next is a product by Hang Ten. It's an SPF 50 classic sport natural sunscreen.  First off the packaging is ADORABLE!  It's hard to tell in the picture but the orange is like a neon orange!  So cute!  The website says it's "Oxybenzone Free, Paraben Free, Retinyl Palmitate Free, Non-Greasy, Non-Nano, Synthetic Fragrance Free"   So if that is important to you this might be a good option.  It's smells a little like coconut which I love.  It smooths on nice and easy.  I think I will test this out next time I'm going to be out in the sun!

Our next product comes to us from a company called Hey Honey! It's is a Exfoliating honey peel off mask.  I remember doing a lot of peel off masks when I was in high school because it's so funny to see you peeling off your "face"!  I'm kind of excited to try it.  The consistency is  the typical peel off mask, "sticky" type. There is a bit of a sweet smell but nothing overpowering!  I think I'll try this tonight!!

This is the only make up I got in this months bag. It's an eye shadow duo by Pacifica.  I received Duo#2 called Moonbeam & Unicorn.  When I first opened this I thought oh that's a nice purple and the white might be a good highlight color. So I decided to swatch them on my hand and I instantly noticed the white is not white!  It's GOLD!!  When you blend  it out the white is still there but there is a GORGEOUS gold shimmer.  And the purple has an iridescent tone to it.  The purple is a little hard to work with as it's not very pigmented but I think if I use a primer that may help. This duo is really pretty!  And I can't wait to play around with it! 

And last but not least!!  It's a hair oil from balanced guru. It says it balances your frizzy hair (which I have sometimes).  It has sesame oil, Argan oil, jojoba oil, Tamanu oil, Lemon grass & Eucalyptus. I absolutely LOVE the smell of lemon grass so right away I was drawn to this product.  The directions say apply a small amount to your hair, no rinsing necessary. The key is a SMALL amount.  As with any oil, if you put in too much you will look greasy. I quickly worked a small amount through my hair and think it's nice.  Not sure I will use it all the time but maybe as a treatment or when my hair is feeling frizzy. 

All in all I'm happy with this month's bag. I love make up but I love trying new face and hair products too! So much fun to see the package come in the mail each month! I always have to open it right away!

Are you a make up person?  Or a hair person?  Or a skin care person?
