Beauty Wise Wednesday: May Ipsy Bag review

Well it has been just about a month since I got my May Ipsy bag. I have been using all the products throughout the month so that I could give you all my honest opinion of them. If your new to my blog. Ipsy bags are a monthly subscription where I pay $10 and I get a bag in the mail monthly filled with beauty "samples". I say that with quotations because more often than not you get full sized products.
Without further ado, here are my thoughts on the May Ipsy bag!

Product #1: Pacifica Coconut Crushed Pearl Luminizing Body Butter 2fl oz: Sells on their website for $7.00

Product Description: Shimmer and glow with coconut oil, pearls and sea minerals; ultra-nourishing tropical phytonutrients.
Coupon: 20% off on the Pacifica web site
Review: I love this lotion!!! the smell is so perfect for summer and I love having the slight
shimmer. Just makes my arms glow when I wear it. I really am going to buy something from the Pacifica web site one of these days. I know I would just love their candles!

 Product #2: Pacifica Island Vanilla Perfume Roll-on .33fl oz. This is a full sized product that sells for $12 on their website.

Product Description: From their website: Sensual blend sets sweet and sultry vanilla absolute, with honey-jasmine notes and a touch of fruitiness, against a deep and beautiful base of tea.
Coupon: Same as product #1
Review: This is a very yummy perfume! the scent is very warm and kinda sexy. My only complaint is that it doesn't seem to roll out much so I really need to roll out for a bit to feel like I'm getting anything that people would be able to smell on me. I typically start by rolling it on my wrists and then once I've gotten the roller started I'll roll it on my neck/behind my ears. 

Product #3: Juice Beauty Lip Gloss in Champagne .14oz. This is half the size of the gloss they sell on their web site so it's worth about $7.50.

Product Description: From the website: This Reflecting Gloss will give your lips the most brilliant shine on earth. The combination of antioxidant-rich berries, minerals and sweet agave will wrap your lips in radiant color
Coupon: 20% off on the Juice Beauty web site
Review: This product I think is all natural and you can totally taste the fruits it is made with. It's not sticky at all (just a little grainy) The color is very subtle which I like. I have used this on it's own and over my lip stain. I love it, I just need to remember to re-apply it because it obviously doesn't last too long.

Product #4: Yaby concealer refill in the color Buff. This seems to be a full sized refill that they sell on their website for $4.85

The color looks paler that it really is.
Product Description: No real description available but a concealer doesn't really need much describing.
Coupon: 20% off the Yaby website
Review: I'm pretty excited about this product. I just might have found my new concealer. I love how thick it is! it goes on very smooth and I feel like it doesn't end up looking cakey like other concealers I have tried. I will probably be buying this as my permanent concealer in the future.

Product #5: Zoya nail polish in the color Jacqueline. This is a full sized product that sells on their website for $8.00.

Product Description:  Light creamy beige has slight warm undertones and a glossy crème finish.
Coupon: Buy 2 get 1 free on the Zoya website
Review: So I traded my Jacqueline cream color of Neely which is a pastel/mint green color. It went on very smoothly, didn't take too long to dry and lasted for over a week with only minor chips and of course grow out. I got more compliments on this nail polish than I ever have on any other nail polish. I just love the color!

Once again Ipsy has given us an amazing bag filled with products I love!! My only complaint is that I went to buy from these companies after trying out the products for the month and the coupon codes had already expired. I really think they need to keep the coupon does good for at least two months because we need time to try out the products to decide if we really want to buy something or not.
