Y’all, I am loving getting my Ipsy bags. It’s a surprise every month, and I am loving trying out new products.
May is the start of summer for many, so Ipsy created a fun bag. It’s clear and has ice-cream cones and popsicles on it; how cute and perfect for summer! Since it is plastic, it’s pretty waterproof so perfect for the pool or a beach day!
Here’s the round-up this month!
Mellow Cosmetics – Creamy Matte Lipstick in Nude
First thing I love about this product is the packaging. It is sleek and beautiful. I love the delicate detail of the log engraved into the lipstick. I’ve never tried out Mellow Cosmetics, but so far I’m impressed. I put this lippie to the test, too. I wore this on Mother’s Day which was a day full of church, lunch, napping and dinner. This lipstick stayed all day. I did retouch it before dinner but after my pasta dinner it was still on my lips! I was so impressed. This lipstick is very matte which I wasn’t used to—I am more of a cream gal—but surprisingly it wasn’t too drying. I can’t wait to use this one some more.
Urban Decay – Afterglow in Sin – Powder Highlighter
I was pleasantly surprised to receive an Urban Decay product in my bag! I don’t own many Urban Decay products but I know they produce quality makeup. I really like this highlighter! It is the perfect shade for any spot on the fact. It is smooth and has a good staying power, too. I’m not sure if the “8-hour” claim is spot on but it does seem to last! Like I’ve said in previous Ipsy bag posts, I don’t always highlight so these samples are the perfect size for me to use.
Jelly Pong Pong – Supercharged Super Intense Eyeshadow Duo in Electric
Y’all know I love all eyeshadow. This compact is the cutest and I love that is has a mirror in it too. This shadow is super sparkly but I love both colors. One is a deep rose color and the other is gold. They are smooth and stay put on my eyes for a while! I’ve tried both colors and they are both great shades. I cool but simple pop of color for summer nights!
Adesse New York – Organic Infused Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in Surfer Girl
This nail polish is the prettiest shade of blue! I haven’t been able to try this one out for staying power yet but I’m hooked just on the color. The photos don’t do it justice but it is a beautiful pastel blue. I’m excited to try this polish because it has a “gel effect.” That makes me think it will be long-lasting or at least apply well. I’m excited to try this out soon!
