Hello Everyone! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far. I have lots of exciting new posts coming up along with the products and their brands. Today, I want to focus on my Ipsy bag I got in the mail today. I was especially excited about this bag, because they have a referral service, and I finally saved up enough points to get a bonus item! So, instead of the usual 5 items you get every month, I received 6 items this month. :)
If you don't know what Ipsy is its a beauty subscription bag designed just for you (by taking the beauty quiz) for $10 a month. The $10 also includes shipping. Beauty Guru Michelle Phan curates the bags, and you generally receive 5 items.

This month's theme was "Pretty In Paradise!" I think the photo just doesn't do the bag justice this month, its so much nicer in person.
Here is a shot of all the items together before I took them out of their packages, soo pretty!
Be A Bombshell Lash Out Mascara
"A rich pigmented mascara with a lengthening formula that offers a multidimensional look."
A lot of people had complaints about this mascara on Ipsy, but I can tell you first hand I love the formula of this mascara! It doesn't clump and if you put it on right you can layer it for a really dramatic effect. Price Value: $15
Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray
"Create natural, effortless, beach hair worn loose, soft and wavy. It adds body and texture to straight, fine strands or pumps up the curl in already wavy hair. Add extra definition to your wavy layers. Hydrolyzed Silk and Provitamin B5 protect your tresses while adding moisture and shine. Powerful UV Protectors absorb ultraviolet light to save your mane from harmful sun exposure, dehydration and color-fade. You’re left with manageable, touchable waves. Even the straightest hair can achieve tousled beach hair any time of year. " This reminds me a lot of July 2013 Ipsy's Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray which was a product I loved, and the Dream Waves Spray works a lot like it as well. It gives you that beachy wavy hair without actually having to be at the beach. Product Value: $8.79 (at Walgreen's)
Olehenriksen Truth To Go Wipes
"Cleanse, brighten and hydrate your skin with our best-selling truth to go wipes. Our thick gentle cloths remove dirt and makeup in one easy step while imparting powerful anti-aging anti-oxidants. Enjoy the truth collection's uplifting citrus vanilla scent as you cleanse and protect your skin on-the-go." The first thing I noticed about these wipes was the amazing smell, they smell EXACTLY like orange creamsickle push-up pops. I love how these not only clean your face, but they go one more step and work an anti-aging anti-oxidant. Price Value (10 wipes): $9
"Buttery soft and silky smooth, the scrumptious new NYX Butter Lip Gloss tastes as sweet as a sugar cookie—and makes your lips look downright luscious. Swipe it on alone or over your favorite lipstick for creamy sheer to medium coverage that melts onto your lips and is never sticky. " Ipsy picked just right when I received the color "Eclair" which is a pink. There was also a peach (apple strudel) or natural (creme brulee) you could have received. I wish I would have taken a chance on these glosses before, they are amazingly cheap (in price). They also taste really yummy and leave the lips silky smooth. Price Value: $5
Jesse's Girl Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
"This true black liquid liner creates a bold, precise, ultra-fine line that's both waterproof and smudge-proof. The unique, caligraphy-style brush allows you to create lines as thin as one millimeter! " This eyeliner is perfect for making fine lines or a cat eye, you can do all kinds of creative things with this eyeliner. I would not recommend it for thicker everyday lines though. I look forward to experimenting with it more. Price Value: $6.99
Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Peony (BONUS ITEM!!!)
"Irresistibly sheer shades loaded with Vitamin E, Shea Butter, and Jojoba Seed Oil to moisturize, soothe, nourish, rejuvenate and protect, keeping lips smooth and hydrated. Available in a signature vial that connects to any Jouer custom palette." I love how smooth this lip gloss is and all of the moisturizing effects it has to the lips, not to mention the color is beautiful. Product Value: $20
