Ipsy May 2014 Unboxing & Review!

This month marks my ONE YEAR with Ipsy!!! So, today I bring to you my May Ipsy Glam bag.
For those of you who don't already know, Ipsy is a monthly subscription service that for only $10 a month, brings you 4-5 deluxe sample to fullsize makeup, beauty, or skincare products!! Usually the bags have a much higher value than the $10 too, so its totally worth it. If you'd like to sign up for Ipsy, please use my referral link HERE!

This month, there were a TON of different items and a bunch that I wanted. Unfortunately I didn't get exactly what I would have loved to have, but overall it was still a pretty good month.

My favorite part of the bag this month is actually the bag itself. It is SOOO cute and a kind of canvas like material and I absolutely love it. It's going to be my new lipgloss bag for sure!

Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo #1 in Celestial and Opal - Value $7
First up is an eyeshadow from Pacifica. I received eyeshadow duo #1 in Celestial and Opal. As for quality, it's a really nice shadow. It has a really smooth texture, and had I received the other shade, I probably would have really loved it. I'm not a huge fan of purple shadows though. I love Pacifica's products though.

Boo-Boo Cover Up Concealer - FULL SIZE! Value $19.99
Next is a concealer called Boo-Boo Cover Up. I'd definitely never heard of this in my life until I received it, and that is one thing I really love about Ipsy. I was kind of skeptical I'm not going to lie, but this stuff is AWESOME. It covers up EVERYTHING!!! Dark Circles, Age Spots, Acne, you name it. Freaking awesome, new favorite concealer. I received this in medium and it seems a little light, but it blends in pretty well. It contains ingredients that promote healing as well, so it will help your imperfections get better.

Balanced Guru No Frizz Oil - Travel Size Value $13
I'm all about getting stuff to make my hair better right now, so this is a pretty great sample for me. I received the travel size version of Balanced Guru's no frizz oil with organic sesame, grapeseed, jojoba, and tamanu oils. This stuff smells reallllllly good too and made my hair frizz free on a hot and humid day here in Tennessee. Love it!

Hang Ten Classic Body 50 SPF Sunscreen - Value $2.17
I also received a very handy sunscreen from Hang Ten. This is yet another brand I've never heard of in my life. Apparently it is affiliated with Coola, which I don't really love... so I don't know if I'm going to love this. I do however work in the sun so I'm going to test it out on my face. I found it to be a little bit on the runny side which is unfortunate, but it's not greasy, which is good. Here's another picture to show you.
See, runny city.

Avene Thermal Spring Water - Value $9
Okay so this one really confuses me.... I don't really understand the whole idea of paying a very high amount of money to spray spring water on your face when you can literally open a bottle of water or turn on a faucet and do the same. This, Ipsy, is a miss.

Bag Value - EST $47

OVERALL this month was pretty decent. I feel like they did a good job if matching products to the seasons, and most of this bag I like. As with all mystery bags, you can never be certain, but AGAIN if you want to subscribe, make sure and USE MY REFERRAL LINK HERE

Now on to the good stuff! Ipsy's coupon codes for May!! There's a ton!
