May Ipsy 2013

I tried not to read any spoilers from other bloggers before I open my bag each month. It is very tough but more fun that way.

Finally a bag that I know I will be keeping for future use. Love chevrons.

NuMe Finishing Serum (.33 oz/10ml)
There are a lot of youtubers raving about NuMe hair heating and care products. Even though my stash is full of hair finishing products, I will try this out eventually.

Zoya nail polish( 15 ml/0.5 fl oz)
In the shade Jacqueline

Love Zoya nail polish but not sure about this shade as it is a very creamy white shade. 

Pacifica Coconut Crushed Pearl luminizing body butter(2 fl oz/.58ml)
Love love love Pacifica products. I received the bloody orange body butter from Ipsy a few months ago and love it. Unfortunately I cannot find anywhere in Canada who sells them yet. So very excited and happy that I am receiving another Pacifica product.

Juicy Beauty Lip Gloss(4ml/0.14 fl oz)
Juicy Beauty is an organic beauty company. The shade I got is fig which is a bronzy copper color. Very pretty and I am excited to try this out.

Yaby concealer
I believe this one is a creamy concealer. Interesting that I got this brand of concealer in Ipsy bag and an eyeshadow in my Topbox. The shade I was sent is called Buff. It is a very light beige color. Much lighter than my skintone but I guess I will use it as a concealer under my eye to give it a brighter look.

I have read a few other bloggers' Ipsy bags this month and looks like we were sent a variety of products. I thought usually their bags are same with different shades or colors of products. Are you happy with this month's bag?


  1. I didnt get the pacifica lotion but a rollon perfume instead, and my polish was pick. I love the chevron bag.

    1. I love the Pacifica body butter. Haven't tried their perfume but bet it is awesome as well.

  2. If there's a Target in your part of Canada, they have Pacifica!

    All this talk has really made me want to try out the brand too.

    1. I should have taken a closer look when I was at the few Target stores I visited when I was home in Toronto. Thanks for the heads up, will definitely check it out next time I'm in the city.

  3. I've always been intrigued with those subscription boxes, but being the loyal user that I am. I seldom try out new things..

    I know what you meant about not wanting to get the naked basics. I thought the colors weren't that special but then I needed a matte palette that would suit my needs. This fit the bill! I'm glad I got it. I also got it at a cheaper price. Total of $22 from a makeup hoarder who never used it. Lol.

    1. I like to try out new things and the monthly subscription beauty boxes are so much fun for me. It is like Christmas every month opening up boxes :)

      Wow, you got an awesome deal on the Naked Basics. Such a great palette and so glad I finally got it.

  4. cute makeup bag!! i am i LOVE with the chevron trend ... fashion, accessories, home decor ... want chevron everywhere!! x

  5. That Zoya polish actually looks pretty cute!!
