Ipsy May 2015 Unboxing

I've only been subscribed to Ipsy for a few months, I wrote a post on the first one I received in February. In that post I also go over the details of the subscription, so if you're not sure about pricing etc. go on over to check that out.

The theme for this months bag is Jetsetter.

First off, can we talk about how cute this makeup bag is this month? I cannot wait to carry this around in my purse with me! It reads: 'Contents: My Life. Breakups to Makeup'. Love it. This bag is also a different shape from the others I've received, it's almost square, whereas the others are a standard rectangular shape.

Anyway, moving on, in no particular order. This month I received in my bag:

Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lipgloss. I got the shades Bittersweet, a bright purple, and Failbait, a light neutral pink. The glosses came in these little pods (pictured above). There seems to be enough product in these for more than one use, but I'm concerned about storing them once opened. Any ideas? This sample also came with the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Ozone used to prime the lips. I will definitely get a lot of use out of this with those lip products that tend to bleed on my lips.

Bellapierre Cosmetics Gel Eye Liner in No. 02 Ebony. Pretty standard creamy, black liner. A staple in most peoples makeup stashes. I will get a lot of use out of this product as well. As far as I can tell from swatching it on my hand, it's very pigmented, and doesn't smudge at all. Excited to test this out some more.

IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream in Medium. This says it is 7 products in one: moisturizing day cream, anti-aging serum, dark spot corrector, full coverage foundation, environmental free-radical shield, brightening color corrector, and pore minimizing primer. Hmm... Not sure about all that. But it does have SPF 50+, which will be great in the summer months. I'm intrigued by this product. Have any of you used it? What are your thoughts?

Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-in Conditioning Spray. A blend of Rosehip, Argan and Coconut oils. I'm not a huge fan of leave-in conditioners, but they're good to have on hand when needed. This product does smell really good, which is a plus.

Lastly, St. Tropez One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion. I've had this on my to-try list for quite some time now, so I'm happy to get to try 50mls worth before deciding whether to purchase the full size. As someone who doesn't do the whole fake tan thing a whole lot, because of the upkeep etc. that goes along with it, I'm hoping this will be a great product for events, or something like that, where I just want the glow for the night.

There were great brands included in this months bag - super impressed.

Let me know if you'd like a review on anything in particular.

Any recommendations on other beauty subscriptions I should check out? Have you tried any of these products?


  1. I love that bag! St. Tropez is great! I haven't tried that lotion, but the mousse is really good.
    I haven't tried Ipsy yet (I've been on the wait list for a bit), but have tried Birchbox and have loved it.


    1. To get off the Ipsy waitlist, you just have to log into your account and share something on Facebook and/or Twitter. Once you do that, you'll get the following months bag. I looked into Birchbox, and watch the unboxings on YouTube, but I'm not sure if I need both. They're very similar. The one I really want to get is Boxycharm, but they don't ship to Canada yet unfortunately.

  2. I love anything Urban Decay and really want to try the lip-gloss! I've only every tried the eyeshadows/palettes and primers x
