Hey, babes! This post is more than a little late considering we're already in June but I wanted to test out these products before talking about them so I could give you guys a little review. I was super excited to receive my Ipsy bag last month! I mean, look at the stuff that I got! I don't know if it's the best one I've gotten so far because April's had three of the best products and the ones I've used the most often, which you can read here if you've forgotten. But for May, 4 of the 5 products I've used, loved and will use again, so... I don't know? When I try the nail polish, I'll decide if this is the best Ipsy so far but whatever, that's not the point! lol!

May's theme is Travel, it's called "Destination Chic" which is super cute, and the bag potrays this very well! It's in envelop form and it's super lovely! It has to be my favorite bag so far! I'm planning on using it for travelling to put my brushes in. What's been your favorite bag so far?~

On to the products, then:
  • Glamour Dolls Gloss Snob in Twirl - Full size! $1.99 - I usually don't like it when I get lipglosses in ipsy bags so I wasn't very excited to try this, especially because of the packaging. I prefer tubes for lipglosses, but I actually didn't mind it after trying it. It wasn't too thick or sticky, although I didn't use very much of it so that might change if I do. I love the color though! It's also sold out in the website which might mean people love it!
  • Hikari Cosmetics Shimmer Bronzer in Radiate - Not sure if full sized! $17.99 - I absolutely love this! I love that I got the bronzer when I needed it! It was great timing because I was just about to buy a bronzer. And I love the color of this, I kind of just just take a brush and whirl it around all the colors. It creates this really pretty bronze color with just the right amount of glow to it, but doesn't leave behind thick glitter. What I definitely don't like about this product is the smell. It has such a strong, chemical scent that I honestly can't handle. Once it's on your face, you can't smell it but as soon as you open the product, it's everywhere. It's not bad enough for me to stop using it but it's... something. 
  • IT Cosmetics No-Tug Waterproof Mini Gel Eyeliner in Black - Mini sized! Full size is $22.00 - I wasn't very happy when I saw this because... I have enough eyeliners from ipsy especially black ones. But I was happy that it was It Cosmetics! I was super impressed by this! When it says it's waterproof and no-tug, it's no joke. It definitely means it! When this thing dries, it fucking dries, let me tell you! But I really do love this~ I'm glad I got it. 
  • Aurora Gel Effect Nail Polish in Safety Orange - Full sized! $12.99 (on sale for $8.99) - I haven't tried this yet but I'm very excited for it! I feel like this would be amazing for toe nails for the beach or the pool! I especially love the color, it's perfect for summer! I don't really have anything else to say lol~
  • Smashbox Cosmetics X-Rated Mascara - Mini sized! Full size is $22.00 - I was super excited to get this!! Not only was this the first mascara I've received in Ipsy, and I was very happy that it's Smashbox. I've heard a lot of great things about it and I was very excited to try this out for myself! I definitely love it, it creates a beautiful full effect. There's more length than volume though, definitely. I'm totally going to continue to use this!
That's it! Tell me what you got in your ipsy bag in the comments below! Don't forget to follow me on bloglovin' and if you didn't catch my last post, I have a youtube channel now! Yay! Subscribe because there will be a video up very very soon ;) I'll see you later, babes~
