Another month and another Ipsy bag! I have to be honest I do not like the design of the bag this month. I love the purple zipper but that’s about it. However, what matters is on the inside, right? Lets get into the great and the not so great items I got this month!
Hey Honey 27Seven: Day and Night Revitalizing Cream
Okay you guys. When I got this product I was a bit disappointed because I subscribed to Ipsy for new makeup products. However, after using this cream for the first time I immediately ate my words… I am SO happy I received this little lotion sample! Not only does it smell just like honey ( which I love over the chemically smell of other lotions) but it keeps my skin feeling hydrated ALL day long! It isn’t too thick for the summer and lays nicely under makeup. I do sweat a lot in the summer (it has been in the 90’s every day here recently!) but have never had any problems with it beading off my face. I will definitely be repurchasing this cream and I cannot wait to check out more from this brand! If anyone has any suggestions please leave them in the comments below!
Full sized: $38 for 1.7 fluid ounces
Deluxe Sample: $11.18 for 0.5 fluid ounces (This pays for the whole bag right here!!)

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Fireball
See the pink/orange duo chrome? So beautiful!
I am very happy I got this eyeshadow in this month’s bag! I wish the sample was larger (seriously, this is the smallest shadow sample I think I’ve ever received) but I can’t complain too much. Overall, I love the formula and the peachy/pink duo chrome that lasted all day long. I love using this shadow just above my crease as the pink peeks out just slightly adding a fun dimension to any look!
Full sized: $19 for 1.5 grams
Sample sized: $2.53 for 0.2 grams (This is seriously disappointing in my opinion. Urban Decay is a large company and they could afford to offer a better sized sample.)

Seraphine Botanicals Happy Hibiscus Blush
P.S. The nail polish I’m wearing is from Color Club!
I am a blush junkie so this one was a welcome addition to my collection. I like that it isn’t a typical bright summer blush but more subdued. The website states that the blush can appear as a soft suede to a dusky rose on different skin tones. It pulled more suede (orangey-brown) on me which I really loved. For all of you wondering, this blush is also vegan!
Full sized: $18 for 2 grams (I couldn’t believe it but this blush was full sized!! Take note Urban Decay, this is great customer service!!)

Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray
Why has Ipsy been sending me so many hair products recently!? My hair is pin straight and this beach spray did absolutely nothing for me. I put it in my hair when it was damp and then left it in a bun to dry and within a hour of letting it down my hair was completely straight. If your hair has natural body and wave to it, this product may work for you but for all your ladies with straight hair, save your money!
*Side note – This beach spray does have a nice floral scent (not beachy like other salt sprays) and is very affordable! It may be worth trying if you like these types of texturing products.
Full sized: $8.99 for 4.2 fluid ounces
Sample size: $3.21 for 1.5 fluid ounces (Still a better value than the Urban Decay Eyeshadow… can you tell that is still bothering me? LOL!)

Formula X Nail polish in Wingwoman
After a week of wear! Rudy is photobombing in the background! 😛
Ever since receiving a Formula X nail polish in a previous Ipsy bag, I’ve been obsessed with their formula. This gorgeous red is no different. It applies easily, the color was opaque in one coat and it lasted me about a week before I had to repaint my nails. Definitely another great product!
Full sized: $10.50 for 0.4 fluid ounces
Sample size: $3.56 for 4 mL

Total price I paid for the bag: $10
Total value of the bag this month: $38.48 –> This is the lowest value of products that I’ve ever gotten in my Ipsy bag!
Even though this bag’s design was a dud for me, I still loved most of the products that were picked for me. I’m still waiting on a perfect month where all five are gems… Maybe soon?
