Unboxing....Ipsy Glam Bag May 2016 #mayglambag #ipsy

The theme for the Ipsy May Glam Bag is Destination Chic: Greetings from (wherever you are). "Ready for an adventure, gorgeous? Whether you're hitting the road or enjoying a staycation, we want to hear all about it! Fill out this card and send it back for a chance to be featured on ipsy social media."

These are the products that I received in my May Glam Bag:
SOO AE Collagen Essence Masks 
Clark's Botanicals Smoothing Marine Cream

Smashbox X-Rated Mascara
Glamour Dolls Blending Brush #10 Sperm Whale Edition
Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow Trio in Skinny Dip/Crush/Lovely

My favorite thing this month is the cute envelope-style makeup bag! I also love the eyeshadows because they are shades that I wear. I always like getting mascara & makeup brushes because I always love to have backups. I can't wait to try the collagen masks & the moisturizing cream. 

Ipsy is a monthly subscription box which comes with full-size or deluxe-sized products plus a makeup bag. The cost is $10 each month with free shipping to the US & Canada. It is delivered via USPS. I think it's well worth the money that I spend & a great way to try new products & add to your makeup collection. Ipsy sends out multiple variations of each Glam Bag so my review is the products that I received. Yours could be different & I love seeing what everyone else gets in their bag.

So. That's my Glam Bag. What did you get in yours?

Unboxing....Target Beauty Box May 2016 #SpringFling #TargetBeauty #TargetStyle

This is the Beauty Box that Target offered on the 2nd of May. Lately they have offered a new box on the first Monday of each month.

Target ships their Beauty Box in a black box with their logo on the lid. The products came wrapped in purple tissue paper & the theme of the box is "spring FLING". An information card is included that tells all about the products plus a coupon for $3 off of any beauty purchase of $15 or more at Target or Target.com. These are the products that came in this box:

Andalou Resveratrol Q10 Age Defying Night Repair Cream (12mL sample size $4.90)
Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream (20mL sample size $12.80)
L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lip Pen in Matte-r of Fact (Full Size $8.99)
Hair Food Kiwi Dry Shampoo (Full Size $4.99)
Derma e Firming DMAE Moisturizer (1/2 oz sample size $4.99)
Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream (3mL sample size $1.20)
CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser (0.5 oz sample size $0.50)
Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Oil (1 oz sample size $2.67)
L'Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Towelettes in Medium Natural Tan (1 single-use towelette $1.30)
(prices from Target.com)

These products have a value of about $41 and I only paid $10 with free shipping for this Beauty Box, which is a bit higher than the usual $5 or $7 boxes, but it is a good deal because I will use everything in this box. 

Target Beauty Boxes are not a subscription box that you can sign up for so you have to be ready when they are offered because they are first come, first serve & they sell out pretty quickly. 

I try to get these boxes each time they are offered because they usually contain products that I already use or have wanted to try so I'll be watching & waiting for the next Target Beauty Box & I'll give you a heads up!
