May Ipsy Bag Review

I don't think I've ever been so excited before when I've opened the cute pink packaging that holds my Ipsy bag. First off: the bag is just adorable. It's definitely my favorite Ipsy bag yet. But even better when I opened it up, it was like hitting the jack pot! Five things that are just amazing. This months bag was sooo worth it!

 In my bag I got: Briogeo Rosarco Milk leave-in conditioning spray  (full size $20), Eyelure Naturals Number 20 lashes (full size $5.99) , Pixi Beauty Bronzer in Summertime (full size $18), Skone cosmetics Pretty eyes eyeliner in Navy (full size $15), Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Lip Pencil in Ozone (full size $20) and two samples of the Revolution Lipgloss by Urban Decay.

Favorite Summer Blushes

I'm not 100% sure if I've ever mentioned it but I love blushes. They're my favorite makeup product to buy, try and play with! With saying that these are my top five favorite blushes for this time of year! 

Benefit Rockateur Blush- Despite hating the packaging of benefit blushes and this one's particular design I have fallen in love with this blush. I got this blush because I wanted something that was a rosey-gold color but wasn't completely flat. This shade is perfect-it's a rosey-gold so it does give a bit of that "I'm wearing bronzer but not really" sheen but also has a pink twinge that brightens the face.

Kat Von D Everlasting Face Shaper Blush in Por Vida- First of all this blush is so creamy and pigmented. It's so pigmented that I originally had trouble applying it. With this blush less is better! It's a bright coral color that automatically reminds me of summer and it has a nice sheen that's not too shimmery

NARS Blush in Deep Throat- This is one of NARS' cult blushes with a rude name (and for some reason that makes me love NARS even more). I like this one a tad bit more than Orgasm, NARS' other naughty blush, because Deep Throat is a softer peach color with small silver shimmery pieces that reflect the light naturally as compared to the bright pink flush with larger more noticeable gold specks. This is for the days when I want something naturally but don't feel like reaching for my Josie Maran Cheek Gelee!

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in True Love- I call this blush the perfect flush blush. It's a matte blush in that perfect I've-just-done-a-bit-of-exercise color. This particular blush is a bit hard to get the pigment onto the brush as the blush itself is a bit stiff but once you do the color pay off is so worth it. I love it for a perfect no makeup makeup look.

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée in Poppy Paradise- This is my all time favorite blush. If I were to pick one blush to use everyday with out fail, this would be the one. First off Josie Maran products are good for you and the enviornment, this particular product features natural ingredients, organic argan oil and is also cruelty free and vegan. The product itself is a bit scary in the pan but once you apply it (my favorite way to apply is with my ring finger) it gives the prettiest wash of color that sinks into the skin and lasts all day. This product is also extremely hydrating and has the best cool feeling when first applied. I love it.
