I received:

May 2017 ipsy bag contents

A precision foundation brush from Luxie Beauty. I have several Luxie brushes and I love every single one of them. I think I would probably use this for setting concealer more then for a foundation brush. Retails for $23.00 (IPSY660)

The next item is a very pretty blue organic gel effect nail polish in the shade Surfer Girl from Adesse New York. I think there may have been some spillage cause it had a tiny bit on the outside but that’s okay. I have not tried it yet but from the reviews I am excited to test it out. Retails for $18.00 (IPSY20)

This next product is pretty fun. It is a Artist Edition lux long wear star stamp + liner from Starlooks. I am no spring chicken but I still think this would be cute to play with for a night out. Retails for $19.00 (IPSY)

A creamy matte lipstick in the shade Nude from Mellow Cosmetics. Ya’ll know how I feel about matte lipsticks if you have read any of my Makeup Mondays. I am not a fan and wish the trend would just die already….but slap on a good lip balm and put this over it and I really like it. I tried it with just lightly moisturized lips and just NO dry desert lips is not a good look on anyone I don’t care how long it lasts. Winking smile Retails for $13.00 (Ipster)

And lastly the afterglow highlight in Sin by Urban Decay. I love this so I had to get a swatch by the pool so you could see it in all its glory and well this is the start to summer bag. It is gorgeous!!! Full size retails for $26.00
