May Birchbox and Ipsy Review

May Birchbox and Ipsy Review

Hello, loves! It’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty post but it feels so good to be back. I absolutely loved the contents of this month’s subscription boxes. So let’s get to talking!

  • Manna Kadar Cosmetics Radiance Split Pan Bronzer and Highlighter Duo: $21 – While this product swatched really well and has great pigment, I don’t think that this small pan is worth the price. I’ll probably end up using this product as eyeshadows instead of a highlighter or bronzer because the lighter shade has a very white pigment to it.
  • Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen: $6.00 – I absolutely love this eye pencil! It’s incredibly smooth and goes on like a dream. It’s highly pigmented and the perfect pencil of your waterline!
  • Pacifica Island Life Eyeshadow Palette: Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the product listed but honestly, these eyeshadows were just not that great and patchy.
  • Hempz Pomegranate Herbal Body Moisturizer: $23 for 17 oz – I have been using this lotion for a long time and it’s honestly some of the best that I’ve ever used. The price tag is a little high when you buy it at Ulta but I normally purchase mine from T.J. Maxx because they have it for like $10. I have one of these in my purse at all times and a big bottle in my bathroom for my body. You seriously can’t go wrong with this stuff, it’s incredible!
  • Luxie Dreamcatcher Precision Foundation Brush: $23 – Ever since I bought a beauty blender, I can’t seem to do my foundation with a brush anymore. So, when I got this one, I decided to use it for setting my under eye area with power. This is the second brush that I’ve got from Luxie and I love it! It’s such a great indie brand and I look forward to buying more of their products.

  • COOLA Organic Makeup Setting Spray SPF 30: $36 for 1.7 fl oz – When I saw this product I was so excited because I’ve tried COOLA products before and liked them. Plus, I always love to find new setting sprays! This one contains green tea and aloe and leaves my skin feeling so refreshed. I definitely won’t be buying it because that’s a lot of money for the product but the sample is great and I’ll be keeping it in my beach bag!
  • The Beauty Crop Fabulous Flocking Lashes Waterproof Mascara: $20 – First off, the packaging of this brand is incredible and caught my eye immediately. The product itself has a great brush and worked well on my lashes but I don’t like to use waterproof products often so this will definitely be a special occasion type of product!
  • OUAI Wave Spray: $26 for 5 fl oz – Products like this don’t do much for my hair because I have such curly and thick hair. Since I can’t say if it does much of a difference, I love how it smells and how soft it made my hair feel. I sprayed it on before I blow dried my hair and I love it! I had been dying to try something from this brand and it did not let me down!
  • Vita Liberata Ten Minute Tan: $39 for 5 oz – When I got the sample size, I was kind of disappointed because it’s not enough to tan my whole body. So, I tested a small area and honestly didn’t see any difference. Which sucks because of the price. I think I’ll stick to my drugstore self tanner.
  • Manna Kadar Glo Illuminator: $29 – While this product works well to add that small bit of extra glow, I don’t think it’s worth the price. It’s perfect for summer when you don’t want to do a full face of makeup but you want that extra highlight. I added some of this on my collar bones and loved it!
