Today at STYLEanthropy, I’m sharing with you my review of the May MIMI Beauty Bag. This month is extra special because MIMI is now a part of the InStyle Collection. So if you loved the previous beauty bags: February, March and April, you are gonna love the May bag even more. I keep on saying that each month. But really, the #MIMIBAG just keeps on getting better and better, and couldn’t even think how they manage to top off one bag after the other. Good job, MIMI! Good job.
May MIMI Beauty Bag
First off, can we stop for a second and just admire the beauty of that makeup bag? I. CANNOT. HANDLE. If you know me, then you know I love ALL. OF. THIS. The watermelon? Palm/Fern leaves? Flowers? Lippies? It’s only missing one of my favorite prints – pineapple! But who knows? Maybe MIMI will use that for one of their summer beauty bags, right? But anyway, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the artwork on this beauty pouch! Isn’t it obvious with all the praises, capital letters, and exclamation points?!! I love this pouch so much, I even used it as a clutch here.
Of course, it doesn’t stop from the beauty bag. I also LOVE the contents!
When I opened the May MIMI Beauty Bag to see what’s inside, I may have screamed in delight. Awhile back, I was able to try the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide capsules that I got from a goodie bag from a blog event. I loved the product so much and noticed my skin looking better with it. So when I saw that this MIMI Bag had the Ceramide Youth Restoring Essence in a big bottle, no less, I was ecstatic!
Next to that? A full sized bottle of CLEAN Reserve fragrance (MSRP $90). I have been meaning to try this perfume for the longest time, but never got the chance to smell it in stores. You can find it at Sephora, by the way. So when I saw that the May beauty bag had it, I was really excited – even more so when the scent I received is in the floral musk family! I love musky scents which tends to be masculine. But the blonde rose is just the perfect balance of manly musk and feminine floral scents. It’s pretty light and easy on the nose!
While those first two I mentioned were my favorite beauty products from the MIMI Beauty Bag, I also loved the rest of the goodies included for May. ColoreScience is a fun blush with a brush that has SPF50 in it. Tarte Clay Pot is a popular product from the brand. It’s an Amazonian clay waterproof liner which is perfect for those warm days. I got a rose gold shade which is perfect for creating bronzy looks for summer.
Then, there’s also Too Cool For School’s All-in-one Egg Mellow Cream. It’s a firming moisturizer that’s collagen-infused, offering brightening and anti-aging properties. Finally, the beauty bag also includes the Tata Harper volumizing lip and cheek tint in a rosy pink color, Very Nice.
Overall, I’m so HAPPY about the May MIMI Beauty Bag. Thank you #MIMISquad 🙂
I really like all of the beauty products included, and can’t wait to see how MIMI will top this one off with the June bag. What do you think? Tell me your faves or which product you’ve been meaning to try. I’m gathering goodies for a new giveaway here on STYLEanthropy, and would love to consider your suggestions! Xo.
