May Ipsy Glam Bag

Woot woot, my Ipsy* glam bag is in! You can see all of my Ipsy posts here. The bag this month is pretty awesome. I love the snap instead of a zipper, super cute! I just wish I had gotten a different color. They showed blue and purple in the sneak peeks, but of course I got pink. Boo!

Mellow Cosmetics Creamy Matte Lipstick (in Electro)
I like the formula, but I hate color. I wish I had gotten it in nude. But it's super creamy and not drying at all. I might buy the nude color to be honest. I got a .10oz (or 2.8g) sample and the full size is 4.2g.
Original Price: $13 (actual value: $8.67)

Glamour Dolls Blending Brush #10 Sperm Whale Edition
Are you effing kidding me? I retook the quiz TWICE and I'm still getting freaking brushes?? So sick of this bs! On a slightly positive note, it's cute. But I still don't want any more damn brushes!
Original Price: $3.99 (actual value: $3.99)

PEEK Beauty nom nom natural lip plumping balm in Miracle
This is cool. It's super tiny, but I like that it has no pigment. The only downside is that it felt like it was burning a little bit. Probably from the chili pepper. I liked it though. I have searched everywhere and cannot find the size of the retail one though. Which is frustrating, but I can't imagine you would pay $22 for something this small. I for sure wouldn't! So maybe it's half size?
Original Price: $22 (actual value: $11)

Vasanti Brighten Up! Exfoliating Cleanser
I got the full travel size, which is nice! It smells really good, and has no aloe. This is a nice sized sample. I like that there is enough for more than one use. I might come back to this and update after I've used it a few times.
Original Price: $6 (actual value: $6)

Smashbox X-Rated Mascara
Another mascara. I don't hate it, but I kind of feel the same as with the brush. I used it and it does what it's supposed to. It was a bit clumpy the next day. Amanda wasn't a fan. I got a .1oz sample and the retail size is .3oz.
Original Price: $20 (actual value: $6.67)

Total Retail: $64.99; Total Actual Value: $36.33

Not a horrible value but not the greatest either. I'm seriously considering cancelling if I get another brush next month though.
