May Ipsy Bag 2014

It's Ipsy bag time! 

This months theme was 'Fresh Picks'. I think this was geared towards spring and getting ready for summer and warmer weather. 

So what did I get? 

I actually like the bag this month. I just wish it didn't say ipsy all over it. I love the leaves and earthy colors/details. 


This is the Pacifica mineral eyeshadow duo. This looks almost exactly like the Stila All Over Shimmer Duo, which I already own. I didn't include swatches, but the pigmentation for the bronze shade is great, but the pink side is a little light and chalky. I will probably use this for a highlight rather than an eyeshadow. I was excited about this because I haven't got anything like this before in an ipsy bag!

The next is a mini delux sample of the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer. I own the full size of the milk chocolate one, but I always wondered if I would like the original one better! I'm excited to try this out with out buying the full size. 

This is the Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask. I don't really use hair masks (even though I really should). I hope I try this one out though! 

This is sunscreen by the brand Hang Ten. It's called Classic Sport SPF 50. This is a nice travel size sunscreen that I can take with me easily. I usually hate sunscreens but this one doesn't smell too strong of SPF and it's not greasy at all. It actually has a slight coconut/tropical scent to it. 

This is the Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray. I don't really understand what this is exactly. The description says it's a pure spring water mist that benefits sensitive skin by reducing redness, itchiness, and inflammation. I have never used anything like this before and I'm somewhat skeptical. 

Overall this bag was decent because of the bronzer and shadow duo! 

What did you get in your ipsy bag tis month? Let me know in the comments!

  2. I got the exact same bag except for a lip balm instead of the bronzer. I use the Avene spray after toning before going on to the rest of my skincare routine and it helps to calm, soothe and add a bit of hydration.

  3. I've been seeing a lot of other people get a lot of skin care items in their bags, but I really like what you got in yours! I think the Avene water mist is supposed to be like a refresher for your skin (at least that's what I think it does). It's probably similar to MAC Fix+ if you've ever tried that.
