Ipsy: May 2017

It's time for another Ipsy unboxing! I absolutely loved my first bag last month (you can read about it here), and I couldn't wait for my next one. Once again, I couldn't resist the spoilers and totally snooped online. The theme this time around is Summer Friday. I am so excited for summer, and the theme this month is perfect! Is there even a better time then a Friday in summer?
The bag this month is so damn cute! It is a plastic waterproof bag that is covered in an ice cream cone design. Ipsy is killing it this month with the bag. This is definitely going to be used this summer in my beach bag. I love that it is waterproof so that it can be used at the beach or at a pool, and you don't have to worry about your things getting wet or damaged. 
The first item in my bag isn't really a surprise to me. I emailed Ipsy's customer service in April to select one of the items in my box. I knew that I needed to try Briogeo's Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Spray. I emailed Ipsy at, and they were able to accommodate me immediately. Great customer service! I absolutely love spray leave-ins and this one has been on my radar for a bit now. Can't wait to try it!

The next item is a little disappointing to me. I can only use waterproof mascara because of how oily my skin is, so unfortunately I won't be able to try the IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara. It is said to be an ultra volumizing mascara that separates and lengthens each lash. I already have someone in mind to pass this along to.

Ipsy must think that I need to improve my highlighter game, haha! This is the second month that I have received one. I'm not complaining though, since it is the Urban Decay Afterglow Powder Highlighter in the shade Sin. This champagne colored highlight is stunning, and I almost wonder if it is the same thing as the shade Sin in the Urban Decay Naked Palette....I'll have to swatch these two to find out. Either way, both are gorgeous, and I can't wait to use this. I've always preferred powder highlights, so this is right up my alley.

I love trying new brands. The next two items in my bag are from brands I am not too familiar with. The first item is the Cailyn Cosmetics Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet in the shade Practicable. It is a cinnamon matte tint that is meant to by hydrating, long-lasting, and opaque. The shade is very pretty, and I think I might actually hold on to this one instead of giving it away. I have a thing for matte lip tints. The last item is the Jelly Pong Pong Supercharged Super Intense Eyeshadow Duo in the shade Electric. The packaging is so cute, and I love the bright blue! Both shades in the duo (rose gold and gold) are highly pigmented and will completely flatter my blue eyes this summer. I might need to go try this once I'm finished writing this review.
This is a really great bag this month. I can see myself using almost all of the products included this summer. I already have a feeling that the Briogeo spray and Jelly Pong Pong eyeshadow duo will be well loved over the next couple of months. I'm already excited for my next bag!
