As the title suggests this is the May and June Ipsy Bag Reveal. I had to do them together due to the fact that my May bag got lost in the mail and Ipsy would NOT send out a replacement until the end of the month…oh and by “lost in the mail” I mean it never left Ipsy’s shipping facility and made it to the DHL facility that they use to ship the mail. They have since deleted the tracking information so I can’t show that to you but trust that it had me mad enough to just about say forget the whole dang thing. So I waited and they shipped out a new May bag via FedEx Smartpost that didn’t get to me until literally the day before I got my June bag. This folks is why I have cancelled Ipsy multiple times over the years…and I didn’t even get the cute ice cream decorated bag for May! Anyway, let’s check out what was in the May and June Ipsy Bags shall we?
Ipsy cost $10/month and you get 4 – 5 beauty samples that run from mini to deluxe to full-size. Products can be from drugstore, independent, or high end brands and can also be cruelty free and non-cruelty free. To cancel your Ipsy subscription you need to do so by 3pm EST on the last day of the month.
Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Angled Blush Brush
We’re going to start out with the items that were in the May Ipsy Bag first! The first item that was in the envelope and not the actual bag due to size was the Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Angled Blush Brush this is actually the third one of these that I have, the first I ordered from their website and the second was in a previous Ipsy bag. However, I’m not about receiving a third one as I’m a firm believer in you can’t have to many brushes. This was actually the only product switch that the replacement May bag had. I was supposed to get a foundation brush from another brand but got this instead and again I’m not mad.
Purchase Lisa Frank Brush
Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter
The next item in the May Ipsy Bag was a sample of the Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter in Sin. What I’m most glad for on this sample is that it’s larger than a recent bronzer sample that I received where I could barely fit an eye brush in the sample pan let alone a bronzer brush. I actually think I’ll be able to get a Real Techniques Setting Brush in this pan to be able to try the highlighter.
Purchase Urban Decay Highlighter
City Color Bold Brow
The next item in the May Ipsy Bag was the City Color Bold Brow in Medium. I’m a little mixed on my feelings on this one as I love me some brow products, however, I’m also very picky about my brow products. I’m not saying that this won’t be great I would just hate to open it, the color not match, and then it be wasted. So I think I’ll be adding this to the giveaway box.
Purchase Color City Brows
Bare Republic Dry Shampoo
The next item in the May Ipsy Bag was the Bare Republic Dry Shampoo. I’m actually fascinated by this dry shampoo because it claims to not only protect the hair from UV but it also cleanses and revitalizes. I think I’m going to try this a few times and do a full review of it down the line!
Purchase Bare Republic Dry Shampoo
Pixi Beauty Endless Silky Eye Pen
The last item in the May Ipsy Bag was the Pixi Beauty Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black Noir. I was super excited to receive this as I haven’t gotten any eyeliners from Pixi Beauty yet and I love me a good black eyeliner for tightlining. I can’t wait to give this a good use and review it later on the blog!
Purchase Pixi Eye Pen

NYX Whipped Lip & Cheek Souffle
The first item for the June Ipsy Bag Reveal is the NYX Whipped Lip & Cheek Souffle in Pink Cloud. I’m very intrigued by this and plan to try it as a lip product but I’m going to be honest and say that I probably won’t try it as a cheek product!
Purchase NYX Whipped Souffle
Skone Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner
The next item in the June Ipsy Bag is the Skone Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner in Jet Black. While I love a good eyeliner, and from their site this one looks to be a good one, I’m currently bogged down with eyeliners. So this one will be joining the giveaway pile and will hopefully find a good home!
Purchase Skone Eyeliner
City Color Shimmer Shadow
The next item in the June Ipsy Bag is the City Color Shimmer Shadow in Cheers to Life. Can we just take a second and talk about how big this shadow is? Goodness. I will for sure be keeping this and giving it a review. I plan on comparing it to a Morphe shadow of a similar shade and any other shadows that are similar that I have in my collection!
Purchase City Color Shadow
TheBalm Balm Springs Blush
The next item in the June Ipsy Bag is the TheBalm Balm Springs Blush. Seriously?! Here we go again with another pan that will NOT fit the brush that goes with it. Actually now that I think about it, the one that I mentioned above, the micro bronzer, was actually a TheBalm product as well. This really does not make me want to try their products…although the color does look really pretty.
Purchase TheBalm Blush
Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
The last item in for the June Ipsy Bag Reveal is the Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator. I actually like the fact that this came sealed in a plastic wrap to keep it from leaking over the other products. PLUS I can throw it in the giveaway pile and whoever gets it will know for sure that it has not been used. This will be going into the giveaway pile for the same reason that the eyeliner will, I have quite a few exfoliating products that I’m currently using that this would just go to waste before I could use it.
Purchase Vasanti Exfoliator

As you can see from the value charts both the May and June Ipsy bags had about a $30 value, pretty good for a $10 bag. If I had to choose which bag was my favorite I’d have to say that the June Ipsy bag itself was my favorite but the May Ipsy bag had the better set of products! I’m hoping that July’s Ipsy bag will get here fairly quickly so that I can show you what I got in that.
