|Ipsy Glam Bag May 2013|
This is my second Ipsy bag. While I still really like it is not as fabulous as last month but it is still pretty good!
May’s bag is all about Spring Fling. The makeup bag is a pretty turquoise and orange geometric print.
Zoya Nail Lacquer in Piaf ($8.00 USD @zoya.com)The Zoya polishes in this month’s bag are all from the 2013 Spring Lovely line. I was not really impressed with the colour choice I received. Piaf is a yellow slightly golden toned shimmer. I don’t wear yellow polishes. They don’t look good on me at all. While I can appreciate the fact that Zoya was included this month, I would have preferred another shade. But I choose to look at glass half full and will try using this polish for stamping. I have images of this stamped over black maybe?
Pacifica Coconut Crushed Pearl Bronzing Body Butter ($7.00 USD @pacificaperfume.com)This smells so good. I love the smell of coconuts. Mmm It isn’t really a body bronzer. It just adds some shimmer as you moisturize. I put this on my legs today. My shins looked glowy but not overly so and I smelled amazing!
Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia Perfume Roll On ($12.00 USD @pacificaperfume.com)Generous amount of product, great roll on applicator but I am not totally digging the scent yet. It is alright but it didn’t make me too excited. It a just little too sweet for me.
|yaby cream concealer - honey|
yaby Cream Concealer ($5.15 USD @camerareadtcosmetics.com)A Canadian brand! I haven’t really played around with this concealer yet but at first glance it seems it could work for me. The colour I received is Honey. I swatched it on the back of my hand and it blended seamlessly. But the back of my hand is WAY darker than my face. This is my first time trying yaby and so far so good. The product felt pretty smooth and creamy without being greasy-ish. Yaby can also be found at yabycosmetics.com here in Canada.
Mirabella Color Sheer Lipstick ($22.00 USD @mirabellabeauty.com)I sported this today too and I really liked it. It is now a purse staple J. The colour I received is Daydream. On me it comes off as a beautiful sheer nude rose. Love it. The only thing bad I can say about it is that it wasn’t as moisturizing as some of the lipsticks I have been wearing lately but that ain’t no biggy.
I will definitely be sticking around for more Ipsy. Even though there were a couple of things that may not work for me I have been loving what I am getting so far! I just wish the 20% off offers were good for Canadians as well. Wah.
