May Ipsy Glam Bag Review


I love the design of the bag this month! I thought a travel theme was very fun and the bag is absolutely gorgeous. (I took this month’s picture on a pool floaty to try and stay with the vacation theme but you can’t even really tell – haha!). I love that it snaps shut to look like an envelope. I will definitely be reusing this bag in the future!

BellaPierre Cosmetics Nude Gel Lip Liner Pencil

I have heard rave reviews about this pencil on YouTube so I was very excited to receive it in this month’s bag. I am totally in love with this pencil! It is creamy, extremely pigmented, long lasting, and doesn’t dry out my lips. It is also supposedly water proof which I will be testing soon! I will definitely be purchasing more of these in the future!

Full size $18

FORMULA 10.0.6 Pores Be Pure Skin – Clarifying Mud Mask

IMG_3185 IMG_3186

Most mud masks I’ve used in the past are black or brown so I was actually quite surprised when this one came out white! I am a big fan of masks so I am always game to try something new. This one was nice but nothing special.

Full size $6.99 for 3.4 ounces                             Sample Size: $2.05 for 1 ounce

Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow Trio

I wasn’t sad about getting this eye shadow this month but not that excited either. The colors are all shimmery so I won’t be able to use them for one complete look (since I prefer to have mattes as well). However, I do like this trio. The pigmentation is nice and it is long lasting but I just don’t see myself reaching for it as much as I hoped.

Full sized: $12

PEEK Beauty Nom Nom Natural Lip Plumping Balm in Miracle

I wasn’t sure what to think about this balm when I tried it for the first time. I have never tried anything like it but was happily surprised that it did give a nice color to the lips. It didn’t burn my lips like some lip plumpers but I also saw no change in my lip size whatsoever. I like wearing this balm on a more natural makeup day but don’t expect it to magically make your lips bigger or fuller.

Full sized: $22*    (I could not find the amount of product that is actually in this product sold off the PEEK Beauty website. The packaging looks exactly the same but I’m not 100% sure if the sample I received was full sized or not. However, I am assuming it is for the sake of a price comparison)

Shashbox Cosmetics – X-Rated Mascara

IMG_3187 IMG_3192


I have to be completely honest here… I hate this mascara. It makes my lashes so clumpy and the formula is so wet that I constantly have smearing under my eyes. I will not be using this product again. However, I do absolutely love Smashbox Full Exposure mascara which seems to be the exact opposite of the one I received in my bag this month. I read a lot of reviews saying how much people love this mascara so maybe I got a bad one? Not sure… let me know if you have this mascara what you think!!

Full Sized: $22 at 0.3 ounces                             Sample Size $7.33 at .1 ounces

Total price I paid for the bag: $10

Total value of the bag this month: $61.38

I am happy with this month’s bag! I would have been happy if all I had gotten was the lip liner which in itself paid for the whole bag and more!
