Ipsy Glambag May 2017

I was really impressed this month with the foundation as one of the items. Does the bag remind anyone else of those backpacks from the early 90's? 

GLOBAL BEAUTY CARE's Charcoal Wash Off Mask - received this in multiple bags. RETIRE IT!

MANNA KADAR COSMETICS' Radiance Split Pan Bronzer and Highlighter Duo - this is the 2nd time I've received it. too pink for a highlighter, and dark for a bronzer...not a fan.

Estée Lauder's Double Wear Makeup To Go Liquid Compact - sheer foundation with 8 hour wear.  This is full sized! SCORE! 

TRÈSTIQUE's Mini Matte Lip Crayon in Tuscan Wine - in another bag I received a bright red and I LOOOOVED it. I'm equally as happy with this. I wonder if the rest of the brand is fantastic too. 

LUXIE BEAUTY's Luxie Dreamcatcher Precision Foundation Brush 660 - foundation brush that is made for liquid, cream, or powder foundations, concealers, highlighters AND bronzers.
