May Ipsy Unbagging | Jetsetter

Another month, another Ipsy bag! This month the theme is Jetsetter, and Ipsy has tried to pack everything you might need into your carryon. Whenever I'm paring down my subscription services, I always keep Ipsy because I feel like they give the best value for the money - this month was no exception!

Here's what's inside:

  • Breakups to Makeup bag | Get 20% off breakupstomakeup.com with code IPSY20: These clever bags can retail for $30-$40 a piece, so this was an incredible value!
  • BelláPierre Cosmetics Waterproof Mineral Gel Eyeliner | Get 15% off bellapierre.com with code IPSYMAY2015: This liner was definitely the dark horse of this month's bag. I expected it to be just another black liner, but it's actually an amazingly smooth, pigmented, inky black gel liner in a pencil format, and it retails for $14.99! See it in use in the video above.
  • The Organic Pharmacy Double Rose Rejuvenating Face Cream | Get 10% off TheOrganicPharmacy.com with code IPSY2015: This is one product I wasn't so crazy about. The formula seems a little too rich for my combo skin, but it's a little hard to tell when the sample size will only get you through about a week. 
  • Urban Decay Glide on Lip Pencil in Ozone: While I'm not a fan of this petite anti-feathering lip pencil (a $15 value), I really appreciated the lip gloss samples that came along with it! I've been curious about Urban Decay's new lip glosses. It turns out they are amazing! I'll definitely be waiting for a sale to snatch a few more up. 
  • Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo: This came just in the nick of time as I've just run out of the Nuance texturizer I've been using. While it definitely delivers on the "no white residue" claim, I don't think it gives my hair as much body as other dry shampoos do. It really is designed to wick excess moisture away from the roots and nothing more. On the upside, it smells amazing so it's a great fragrance refresher for second day hair!
  • Luxie Beauty Tapered Blending Eye Brush 229 | Get 30% off at luxiebeauty.com with code ipsy30: This is the second Luxie beauty brush I've tried through Ipsy, and I continue to be impressed. The bristles are soft and dense, and this brush in particular is great for applying cream products all over the eyes as a wash of color, or buffing matte shadows into the crease for a flawlessly blended eye. 
Overall, two thumbs up for this month's bag! What did you get in your monthly subscription services in May?
