May 2013 Ipsy

This months bag theme was Spring Fling.
 I just love this chevron make up bag.

St. Tropez One night only instant glow body lotion in a sample size of 1.69oz a $6 value.  Online coupon code Ipsy20 to receive 20% off your entire purchase at  I'm so excited that this was in my bag.   I can not wait to try it out and use the coupon code to pick up some more.

Zoya nail polish in the color BLU from the Spring 2013 Lovely series.  Full size and worth $8.  Online coupon code is ipsyz  buy any two bottles and get one free +  free 1oz. remover + $5 shipping.  This is my first Zoya polish and have not used it yet so I will do a review/ swatches asap.  When I saw this was going to be in every bag from Ipsy this month I thought it practically paid for the bag already! The polish runs $8 and to ship it to the house cost about another $6.95 so that total right there is more then you pay for an Ipsy bag.  Plus the Ipsy bag comes with four to five more products.  So... needless to say I jump at getting a second bag, Lol!
Juice Beauty Reflecting gloss in the color Pink.  Is a full size product worth $15.   Online coupon code is IPSY20 to receive 20% off any purchase of $30 or more online.  In very nice packaging that reminds me a little of the Buxom glosses.  I have not swatched this or tried it on because I have tried other products from Juice Beauty and for me personally I can not stand the smell.  I'm sure its just me, because I have seen plenty of other people rave about this gloss.  So I might try to trade this product at my Ipsy forum I use.
Nu.Me is polished finishing serum sample size in 10ml. value of $4.92 Online coupon code is ipsy60 for 60% off any single product.  Directions say massage 2-3 drops on to palms and evenly distribute through wet or dry hair. Reapply to fished look to add shine and accentuate your color.  I have never used this product but I'm a hair treatment junky so I'm sure Ill love it.
Yaby concealer in the color buff cc008 refill, value of $5.06  Online coupon code ipsyluvsyabycc20 for 20% off purchase.  This I thought would be my lease liked item in the bag and I was happily surprised.  Usually this color would be way to dark for me but I've gotten tan this spring so it has worked out to be the perfect color for me, for now.
I also went out to pick up the $1 ELF palette holder.  I do not have any universal holders and this one was cheap and easy to get.  So you would think that this would work right, nope epic FAIL! The concealer pot is to small for this holder and the ELF palette is magnetic so it doesn't hold it in place.  So, no biggy I glue it in!

Ipsy sent me this bonus item a Urban Decay Moondust eyeshadow in the color Zodiac.  It is full size and worth $20!   Not everyone received this item but there where three ways to receive it (according to Ipsy's official answer). One, a contest held by Ipsy on there Facebook page.  
Two, the new referral program where if you refer two friends you receive a free Urban Decay shadow or a Baublebar bracelet with your next months bag. Or three, being an active member of Ispy online.  The last one is was I was part of.  I write these blog reviews and then upload short videos to YouTube.  After doing this as my regular routine I decided to link my video to my Ipsy online profile.  So I think that and/or maybe leaving a couple of comments online are what qualified me for this eyeshadow.
  I don't really where sparkly green eyeshadow but just to be given something as a thank you for something I did, is amazing!  Please let me official say "Thank You Ipsy!" Keep up the good work.  And what an amazing bag this was this month plus all the different combinations.   I'm so glade I ordered an extra one! I'm hoping to get the Gardenia sent from Pacifica in my second bag.  And I will post all about that bag as soon as it comes in.

Bag Total: $38.98 + Bonus ($20) + NuMe Gift Card ($110)  = $168.98
