ipsy - may/jetsetter.

I'm kind of surprised I haven't mentioned my Ipsy subscription on the blog yet. It took about four months for me to start receiving bags, but once I did, I realized Ipsy is a serious game changer. I don't spend nearly as much on makeup anymore now that I can look forward to five specialized samples every month. I chose Ipsy over Birchbox because I was looking for a box that was cheap and geared mainly toward makeup. Ultimately I think I made the right choice and am so happy to be a subscriber.

My May bag was one of the best ones yet. Here's a breakdown of everything I received:

Breakups To Makeup bag - One of the cutest bags I've gotten. I will definitely be throwing this in my purse.

Jesse's Girl Pure Pigment Eye Dust in Brown Sugar - I was not immediately thrilled with this when I pulled it out of the bag. When I tested it out, however, I had to reverse my opinion. The color is a gorgeous smoky brown. It looks beautiful on its own, but can be easily blended with gold or a darker brown for a statement eye.

IT Cosmetics CC+ Makeup - I'll be honest and admit that I haven't gotten around to using this yet. The color looks good and I love CC creams, so I have high hopes for this.

Cailyn Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint in Narcissist - Again, my first reaction to this was less than pleased. After testing this out, I am officially in love. The color is perfect and fulfills the natural pink gap in my lip product collection. I love matte lip stains and tints for their lasting power, and this one did not disappoint. I wore it all day and only had to touch up once. Not bad at all.

Briogeo Rosarco Milk - This is a perfect example of why I love Ipsy so much. I would never buy something like this for myself, since I generally tend to forget about hair products. This stuff has me seriously rethinking that mindset. I put this in my hair after a shower and was amazed by how soft and healthy my hair felt when it dried. I'm slightly worried that I will go through it too quickly. Although, let's be real, I'm pretty sure this will end up in my permanent collection.

Eylure Naturals Lashes in 020 - This was perhaps the one item I was most excited about when I saw the bag preview. I had a few events to attend at the end of May and could not wait to test these beauties. They were amazing! I have pretty average lashes and these strips were just the thing to bring them to the next level. They add fullness and length without being even the slightest bit ostentatious. I will be reusing these as much as possible before it's time for a repurchase.
