Can you believe it's that time again? It seems like I just posted a review on Ipsy's April bag. The sneak peeks of this month's Ipsy bag have been causing quite a stir amongst the beauty community. I have been doing my best to avoid any spoilers that way I could fully enjoy the awesomeness of this month's Spring Fling by Ipsy.
Mirabella Colour Sheers Lipstick (Daydream): Mirabella Beauty mineral-based brand that claims to compliment all skin tones. I have received Mirabella products in the past, but this is the first time I've had the opportunity to try one of their lip products. In the tube, this color is gorgeous and it swatches true to color.
This applies sheer but still very pigmented. I may have to experiment more with this brand in the future. Full size (3.0g/.11 US oz) $22.00
St Tropez One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion: I have never tried this brand before, but I've heard of it. St Tropez usually receives pretty good reviews on it's products. The Instant Glow Body Lotion claims to provide an instant bronzed glow for those special ocassions, so it washes completely off. It seems like a legit alternative for those that are weary about streaking from self-tanning. 1.69 fl oz - $6./5.0 fl oz - $18 (Sephora)
Zoya Spring 2013 Lovely Collection Polish (Neely): Amazingly, I only have one other bottle of Zoya nail polish in my collection. Thank you Ipsy for including a bottle from their latest collection in this month's bag. Neely is an interesting color that is described as "earliest spring green" and reminds me of a muted pistachio color. I don't have anything like it so...winning! Full size (.5 fl oz) - $8
Pacifica Perfume Roll On (Tahitian Gardenia): I first heard of the brand, Pacifica, when they received a lot of positive reviews from it's Tuscan Blood Orange Body Lotion a few months ago. I was pleased to find one of their products in this month's bag. Tahitian Gardenia is a sweet scent with a hint of citrues. It is a refreshing fragrance that is far from overbearing, making it the perfect scent during the day. Full size .33oz - $18
Yaby Concealer (Honey): I believe we received eye shadow samples from Yaby in a previous Ipsy bag. It's always "hit and miss" when receiving concealers in a monthly subscription box. I'm fortunate that I received a yellow toned concealer in this month's bag.
This concealer is pretty light weight and applies like butter. I'm really impressed with this concealer and I wouldn't mind getting my hands on Yabby's concealer pre-set palette in the future. Concealer refill $4.85
In addition to the great products I received in this month's bag, Ipsy also included a coupon code from NuMe for $110 off Hair Styling Tools and Hair Extensions + Free Thermal Pouch with purchase. Sadly, my hair is pretty short and straight so I have no need for NuMe products at the moment. The offer is good until November 2013, who knows...maybe I'll have grown out my hair by then.
Total value for this month's "Spring Fling" by Ipsy = $58.85. That's excluding the adorable chevron print cosmetic bag and the $110 offer from NuMe...and it only cost me $10. Not bad if you ask me. What did you receive in this months bag?
