Ipsy Bag: Spring Fling

Hello lovelies! It's the time of the month to share with you the products of my May Ipsy bag. Every month, I wait anxiously to received my bag and this month, of course, was no exception.

Here is my Spring Fling:

First, I got this concealer  refill from yaby in honey. I have never heard of this brand before, but I think the choice of shade is good for me. I also like how feathery it feels when applying onto the skin. I do not like this product under my eye area, though. It looks too dry and too cakey under my eyes. It also accentuates the fine lines under my eyes, so I avoid using it as an under eye concealer.


The second product in my May ipsy bag was this Pacifica roll on perfume. I remember that the first perfume that I ever had was a roll on perfume from Avon that smell like a baby powder. My mom got it for me, so I will stop using her Dolce and Gabana, which she thought, was too strong for a young woman. (Now, I agree with her)  


Going back to my review, I am not so found of gardenia scents. I feel like they smell to grassy for me. I feel sorry for having to give this one away, because I love the practicality of having a roll on perfume on my makeup bag.

Third, I got this Hair Finishing Serum by Nume. I am SO glad for having gotten this serum! As we all know, humidity season has arrived in New York and to have a "good day" hair is not an easy task. I am very excited to try this out. It can be apply on dry or wet hair to treat split ends and to give a glossy finish. Ipsy is very good at finding hair treatments and I am very sure that this won't be a disappointment.

Next, it is this nail polish by Zoya in Blu. At first, I was like "another nail polish?" But, then I realized that I don't have a light summery nail polish and besides, I have never tried Zoya nail polishes before. So this is also a very exciting product for me and I cannot wait to paint my nails with it.

Last, but not very favorite product from my May Ipsy bag is: this gorgeous color sheer lipstick in Posy by Mirabella. I love this lipstick! You all know that I am a lipstick lover.....I can't never have enough of them. I actually put this on today and I love how moisturizing and long lasting this is. And because it is a sheer formula, do not require to much precision to apply it and to re-apply it during the day. Moreover, it is Lead and Paraben free. Woohoo!

So the verdict for this May Ipsy bag is: I like it. The products are great and there are a few products that I have heard so much about, but I have never gotten the opportunity to try them, and now, this is my chance to do so.

Good job Ipsy!

So, tell me how do you like your bag this month? Is there any products that you wish you have gotten instead of the ones in your bag? Please, do share.

Hasta pronto!

L'Oreal Infallible Le Rouge Lipcolor, Refined Ruby

Hello lovelies! I am so excited about this new lipstick by L'Oreal. It is the Refined Ruby Lipcolor from the Infallible lipstick line.  I know that this lipstick has been around for a while, but I recently came across with it. And the verdict is: I LOVE IT!

I love this shade of red color. It looks very classy, very 50s. It is a nice cool shade that compliments many skin tones. My suggestions for pale skin tones is that make sure to add some blush to your cheeks so you don't look washed out. This lipstick last forever and I love that about it. It does not bleed out of of the lips line, like other red lipsticks do. It feels a little dry, but it does not dry my lips at all.
In my opinion, it is very low maintenance. It you are afraid of using red lipsticks, it would be a good idea to give this one a try and see how you like it.

By the way, Happy Mother's Day to all of you and for those you are not mothers yet, Happy Mother's Day to your moms from me ;)

Hasta pronto!
