May Ipsy Bag Review - Paint The Town Chic

May Ipsy Bag Review

As soon as I pulled this cute little ice cream bag out of the pink package, I knew my May Ipsy collection would be a winner!  This month, I got a nice mix of products including skincare and makeup; read on for more details...

1.) Estee Lauder Double Wear Makeup To Go Liquid Compact
I immediately had to look this up because I couldn't believe a full-sized Estee Lauder item would be in the Ipsy bag!  And they sent me a shade that works for my skintone.  It's a pretty cool concept - you just press a button and the compact dispenses liquid foundation, and you can build up if needed.  It provides great coverage without feeling cakey (which means it's perfect for summer!)  There's no extra waste and no spilling.  It's also a great compact for travel.

2.) Luxie Beauty Foundation Brush 660
Another brush, but finally a foundation brush.  It's so soft and fluffy, and it's vegan and cruelty free as well.  Plus it comes with the prettiest purple handle!  I can't wait to use this with my liquid foundation, but it can also be used for powders, concealers, highlighters and bronzers!  That takes multi-tasking to a whole new level.

3.) Manar Kadar Radiance Split Pan Bronzer and Highlighter
I've gotten Manar Kadar items before, but I'm especially loving this duo.  The two shades compliment each other, and the color can be built up if you want a more dramatic look.  This can also be used as an eyeshadow.

4.) treStiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon
I've also gotten mini lip crayons in previous bag, but I love them.  This time I got Tuscan Wine, and I originally thought it would be too dark for spring/summer.  But after trying it on, it's the prettiest shade of red.  This also looks more like a lip stain if you only apply a little and blend it with your finger, so I love it.  This will be going in my makeup bag!

5.) Hempz Pomegranate Herbal Body Lotion
Rounding off this month was a body lotion made with hemp seed oil.  I've never tried anything with hemp seed in it, and after looking it up, I really think I need to incorporate it more into my skincare routine!  The pomegranate scent is so light and refreshing and I love the lingering scent.  Hempz has some other products (and scents) that sound great, so I'll have to try more items.

This is probably one of the best Ipsy bags I've ever gotten.  So many great products, all of which I will use.  I also love this water resistant bag, which will be perfect for the beach.  As always,  I can't wait for the June previews to start!
