I’ve never been a makeup person. Well, there was that one year a few years back, but I was going through a phase. Ok, I was trying to catch a man (this was before I met and married Mike), but that’s another story. Like I was saying, I’ve never been a makeup person, so I sort of shocked myself when I decided to sign up for Ipsy. Everyone always talks about it and I figure, hey why not? It’s only $10 a month and after 3 months I’m really happy with what I’ve received so far.
The main reason I signed up was to get hair care, skin care and lip care samples. I LOVE lip balm. So far I’ve ended up liking at least 2-3 things out of every bag and the stuff I don’t want I give to my Mom. I’m also saving some of the things I won’t use to give to my sister-in-law, Emily.
Here’s what is in my May bag:
This month’s bag is inspired by a favorite summer treat – ice cream!
Hempz Pomegranate Herbal Body Moisturizer. I love lotion, so I’ll be using this one for sure….and it smells amazing!
KVossNYC Macaroon Lip Balm in light cream. This one is definitely a keeper. I LOVE lip balm and this is perfect just to use on its own as a moisturizer, but you can also use it over lipstick to add sheen.
Urban Decay Afterglow in Sin. I’m going to pass this along to my sister-in-law, Emily. I’m sure she’ll get more use out of it than I will.
Luxie Beauty – Luxie Dreamcatcher Precision Foundation Brush 660 for liquid, cream or powder foundations, concealers, highlighters and bronzers. I’m not going to be using this one either, so away it goes to either my Mom or Emily.
Mellow Cosmetics Creamy Matte Lipstick. I LOVE this color, but since I don’t wear makeup it’s really not a keeper for me. My Mom will probably love it though. It’s also full of Vitamin E, so it’s creamy and moisturizing.
