Ipsy Bag - May 2014

Hi everyone,
I received my Ipsy bag today in the mail! If you are unfamiliar with Ipsy, it is a $10 + tax + free shipping monthly subscription service where you receive a bag with 4-5 selected deluxe/full size beauty (skincare, fragrance, cosmetics, cosmetic tools) products garnered towards your taste based on a personalized quiz you take. You can find out further information or sign up on their website:

The theme of this month's bag is "Fresh Picks." According to Ipsy,

 "It's a month of crisp air, vibrant flowers, and fresh Glam Bag products! Getting your beauty to bloom all month long will be as easy as lying in the warm grass and basking in the sunshine."

Inside is a card with the theme's name, "Fresh Picks." Ipsy usually puts a list of products that are in your bag on the back of this card with full size prices and discount promo codes, but it looks like they put a year long subscription contest instead. It's okay though because I did the calculations, and figured out how much each sample costs based on its full price and size value!

I really like the earthy, plant, spring bag we received this month. You can see that I received five products this month.

I really like the Pacifica Eye Shadow Duo. I was unable to calculate cost since this is a duo which Pacifica doesn't make.
Unfortunately I do not know what these two shades are. Please let me know if you know! They are both so pretty.  The left shade looks like a matte champagne, but in actuality it is a champagne with pink iridescent that gives it a nice pearlescent finish. It is a little chalky, but it has good color payoff. The one on the right is a beautiful satin finish gold shade.

I haven't tried the next four products yet which are all skincare related items!
I received the Pur~Lisse Pur-Moist Hydra-Balance Moisturizer.
0.5 oz sample size price = $16.17
1.7 oz full size = $55

Jersey Shore Sun - Sans Tan Pure White Mineral Sunscreen with SPF 35. This is an all-natural, anti-aging sunscreen!
0.5 oz sample size = $10
2.0 oz full size = $40

I saw Michelle Phan's Graduation Youtube video HERE where she used this product, and I was really hoping that I would get it, and I did! The sample size is small, but I am still excited to try something new! This is the Hey Honey Facial Peel!

10 mL sample size = $7
50 mL full price = $35

Last but not least, I received the Avene Eau Thermale Thermal Spring Water which I'm really excited to try!
Travel Size = $9

A lot of these products are skincare items, and I'm excited about that. My skin needs some love especially with constant and dramatic weather changes. I know that Ipsy typically provide cosmetic products, but it's nice to take a break and try other new beauty products. I do find that some of the skincare samples are really tiny sizes. That doesn't bother me too much, but I am overall happy with my bag.
