The May 2013 Glam Bag theme is Spring Fling. I'm not going to mince words. Prepare yourselves.....

...... this flipping bag is awesome. It's probably bordering out of control types of awesome. It's loaded, you guys. If you haven't signed up by the end of this post I don't know wtf is wrong with you. Seriously. Go get checked out.

What you see above is an orange, white, aqua and blue makeup bag. Fun, makes me think more Summer than Spring, but still seasonally appropriate. The card is basically there to give you the run down of what is in your bag and the discounts you can get by visiting the Glam Room on The second card gives you a discount code for NuMe.


What’s inside?


Starting off, from NuMe, the Finishing Serum. This is great to tame your hair and give it some gloss and shine. I have oily roots and I keep it at the ends and am happy with the results (which are the same as when I use any type of Argan Oil, etc).


Next, from Zoya, the Nail Polish in Blu. Y'all know I love me some Zoya. Check out my swatches and review of Blu here.

From Pacifica, the Luminizing Body Butter in Crushed Coconut Pearl. This gives you shimmer and glow and also keeps your skin hydrated. The pearl is subtle and ohhhhh it smells gooooooddddd.... This has my skin smelling yum and feeling fresh and cool. Loving this.

Next, from Yaby, a concealer refill in Buff. Not a huge fan of the shadows, but the concealer has major coverage. Albeit a little thick, if you have a monster zit or something equally as fierce this should cover it for you. This color matched me well and it's small enough to keep in your makeup bag for touch-ups.

Finally, the Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss in Pink. This tastes amazing. I can't believe I'm talking about taste first with a gloss... but omg.. like oranges... so yum. It has a ton of slip, isn't sticky and gives a nice tinted shimmer. Full size!

Oh, but we're not done. I also got this lil doozie from Urban Decay - the Moondust Eyeshadow in Glitter Rock. Gorgeous. Soft, really glittery... just so ridiculously pretty. I saw a few of the other shades as well and I think I need more of this thing we call Moondust. Anyway, this is a FULL SIZE shadow! Received as a bonus for being an active ipsy member! Woooo!
