Whats In My Makeup Bag + May ipsy

Hey there fellow beauty lovers!  Today's post is an update on what's in my makeup bag and is combined with a post on my daily makeup routine.  My most used products for the last couple of months are a mix of drugstore, obscure online purchases and samples from Ipsy bags. I'm a budget shopper so finding quality products that look great but are less than $10 is pretty important to me.  Read on to check out what I'm loving recently and maybe get some ideas for your own makeup bag!  Bolded items are favorites that i make a point to use daily! Feel free to request a detailed review on anything.

My ipsy bag for this month is so cute. Canvas, says "Contents: Pretty Important Stuff".  This month wasn't particular exciting.  The bag features a gel eyeliner from bellepierre, leave in conditioner, an eye shadow brush (can never have too many of those!), a moisturizer (that smells amazing-like dryer sheets haha), and a little card with samples from urban decay of lip primer and two glosses.  If any of these products blow me out of the water I'll do a review but lately I've just been getting mediocre things.  At some point i'll post my all time favorite products I've received from ipsy in a compilation type post.  

On a side note: Congrats to all the graduates! High school and college kids alike have been attending graduations this week, my fiance included. (yes, i'm engaged!!!).  I hope everyone enjoys their summer. We are taking a day trip to myrtle beach on monday, i'm so ready.  Plans for the summer? Tell me!
