I am FINALLY back to blogging. This month has been crazy with traveling, school, family and work but everything is slowly winding down. I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate my return with this month’s Ipsy review as it was one of my most popular blogs and I get so excited to share what I got in my bag! This month Ipsy released three different bags and I received the one that is mint green. I am billed $10 on the 1st of every month and typically receive my bag by the 15th of the month. Below is my review of the 5 products I received!
- I have linked the websites of the companies and any other products I have talked about in this blog! They are linked through the red “here”. Just click on it and it will take you to the site! 🙂
Living Proof – Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo
When I saw this product was in my bag I was a bit disappointed as I use Ipsy for new makeup products. However, this dry shampoo really surprised me! Unlike most dry shampoos it actually seemed to remove some of the oil from my hair and add a bit of volume. It really did make a difference on my second day hair which I can’t say for any other dry shampoos so this one ended up being a great product!
Full Size: $22 for 4 ounces
Deluxe Sample: $9.90 for 1.8 ounces

Me Me Me – Loose Powder Brush
I am a big fan of trying out new makeup brushes and expanding my collection. I just recently started receiving brushes in my bag so I was excited to get this one. It wasn’t anything special, just a regular powder brush. I would compare it to the e.l.f. mineral powder brush which is only $3 and is available at most drugstores.
Full Size: £14 converted to $19.88

Global Beauty Care – Dead Sea Wash Off Mask
My boyfriend and I had a lot of fun doing this mask together! We both have very sensitive skin but neither of us had any bad reactions (burning, redness, dryness, ect.). It was quite relaxing but I didn’t noticed any difference in my skin after the few uses that I got out of this packet.
Full Size: $9.99 for 5 ounces
Sample Size: $1.99 for 1 ounce

TEMPTU – Warm Glow Bronzer
This product is made to be used in an airbrushing system for a more flawless makeup application. But, you can also apply this with a brush or beauty blender
Blended out – it left a shimmer which is difficult to see in this picture
I was surprised when I saw that I was going to be getting a bronzer in this month’s bag. I am very pale and most bronzers just look orange on me so I tend to stay away from them. This one is no exception. However, I think it would be good to mix into a foundation that is a shade or two lighter than your skin tone to add a bit of luminosity to your face. If I ever find a foundation that is too light I will be using this!
Full size: $27.50 for 1 fluid ounce
Sample Size: $6.88 for 0.25 fluid ounces

NYX Cosmetics – Liquid Suede Creme Lipstick
With just one layer of product, this is the color that you get on your lips – so beautiful!
This is the brown color that I got when I layered the lipstick. It is a really pretty color if you like brown lips but it was a totally unexpected color change from the pink!
I’m already a huge fan of NYX, as I’m sure most other makeup lovers are, so this was the item I was most excited about. I received the shade Soft Spoken which is a beautiful mauve rose when applied in one coat and dries pretty matte within 10 minutes (also it doesn’t transfer unless you intentionally rub your lips!). When I tried to layer the color it began to look more brown and did not dry at all. I wish you could layer the color more easily but I have still been using this lip color on the daily.
Full Size: $7

Overall, I am happily surprised by this month’s bag. I didn’t think I would like many of these products when I first tried them but after using them for a couple of weeks I find myself reaching for all of the items quite frequently except for the bronzer.
Total price I paid for the bag: $10
Total value of the bag: $45.65
