May Ipsy Glam Bag

Hey there! In the middle of finishing up finals and my junior year of college, my Ipsy bag arrived! It definitely made me take a much needed break from the stress of school. Let’s take a peek!

First up is this concealer from the company Boo Boo Coverup. Honestly, I’m super picky about concealers and after swatching this one, I don’t think I’ll be using it. It has a good amount of coverage, but it feels really heavy and I don’t think it quite matches me. I’ll probably test it out again at some point to see if it could be a good blemish concealer, but as for now I’m not a huge fan of it.

Next is this No Frizz Oil by Balanced Guru. I’ve gotten a couple of hair oils in the past and I haven’t used them, but since the summer humidity has set in, I think I’ll give this one a try. I’m hoping it will be able to tame my fly away baby hairs without making my hair and scalp super oily.

I’m really glad I got a sunscreen this month because I was planning on buying some. I’ve never heard of this brand before, so I’m excited to try something different this year. My sister actually borrowed it a couple of days ago when she went to the pool club and she said that it seemed to last through lunch and a dip in the pool so I think this will be a great option for the beach.

I also received this Avene facial spray. I’ve heard great things about facial sprays like the ones from Evian and Caudalie, but I’ve never tried them myself. I think having one in the summer to refresh my makeup would be really helpful, but after reading the instructions on the packaging, I don’t think this will be good for that. The instructions say to spray it lightly on the face and pat it off with a facial cloth. I’m excited to use it on days when I’m not wearing makeup or when I’m at the beach though, so it’ll come in handy for that.

I’ve seen the brand Pacifica a few times at Target, but I’ve never thought to pick up any of their products. I love wearing lighter shimmery colors in the summer, so getting this eyeshadow palette was perfect. I also really like that it came as a duo with a purple eyeshadow because it’ll be great for adding a pop of color to the look.
