Introducing Icon Box by IPSY! May 2023 Unboxing + All May Products!

Monday, May 22, 2023

I received a complimentary Icon Box from IPSY. All opinions are my own. This post may contain some affiliate links. 

Hey, guys! I've got the brand new IPSY Icon Box for May 2023 to unbox for you! Icon Box is a quarterly upgrade and this first Icon Box is curated by none other than Anastasia Soare of Anastasia Beverly Hills, Brow Queen fame! You know it's going to be good! I'll tell you a little about IPSY Icon Box, all of the products that could come in this season's IB, plus what I got in mine. Let's get unboxing!

Icon Box is a seasonal (4 times a year) upgrade to your regular Glam Bag or Boxycharm, so it will replace your bag or box every three months. 

Just like the previous Glam Bag X, Icon Box will be curated by a different celebrity each season. This season's curator is Anastasia Soare of Anastasia Beverly Hills!

The Icon Box contains 8 full-sized products worth up to $350 specially curated by beauty’s biggest tastemakers and celebs, and you get to choose three from a personalized assortment, which includes exclusive product drops you won’t find anywhere else. 

Check out all of my IPSY unboxings so far here.

ALL May 2023 Products

I like to be able to share everything that could come in your box. Like most beauty boxes, you will complete quizzes and compile a profile for yourself when you join. That will determine the items that IPSY will choose for your bag and not all bags will look like mine. 

This is everything that could come in an Icon Box this month.

Icon Box by IPSY May 2023 Unboxing

As I mentioned before, this season's curator is Anastasia Soare. 

"Elevated artistry and commitment to workmanship are what make Anastasia Beverly Hills so iconic. “This year has been full of milestones, including the 25th anniversary of ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS and now this Icon Box collection”....“From day one, it’s been my goal to bring high-performing products and tips to everyone,” says Soare. “The foundation of ABH is rooted in balance and proportion. One eyebrow and one look does not fit all. By expressing your unique beauty, you will outlast any trend, I promise.”"

Out of the box:

"Like its namesake, this mega-rich serum is a groundbreaking multitasker. A sugar-derived matrix brings surface tightening and lifting you can feel immediately. Soothing Japanese rice sake and yeast-derived ferments soothe, condition, brighten and plump the look of skin. While our hero JLo Beauty Olive Complex, an antioxidant-rich, 4-part olive blend of squalane, fermented oil, extra virgin oil, and leaf extract, packs clinically shown, all-day moisturization and superstar glow."

I haven't tried one of these Jlo Beauty products yet and instead of getting the regular size, we got the 1.5 oz. value size worth $105!!! 

"Revive dry skin with Kate's restorative all-over cream clinically formulated to replenish essential hydration. Instantly relieves dryness, tightness, and roughness while helping to restore skin's natural barrier function."

Ooh, another new-to-me product, but this time from one of my favorite skincare brands! I get super-dry skin and I can't wait to try it.

"The 10 percent encapsulated vitamin C complex gently releases over time to maximize visible brightening and minimize irritation. It’s combined with vitamin C-rich guava to help brighten the look of dark circles and formulated for the whole eye area, including the under-eyes, eyelids, in-between brows, and inner and outer corners. This 360-degree eye cream will visibly illuminate, hydrate, and firm the eye area."

Another skincare product from one of my fave brands! Loving this box so far!

"Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Bronzer debuts a revolutionary new, weightless cream formula for sun-kissed color. Warm up skin while creating contour and definition with this versatile all-in-one product for dimensional warmth and sculpting. Cream Bronzer stays true to color and sets itself with a natural, matte finish. It grips to skin with a flexible hold that doesn't streak, patch, oxidize, or smudge the complexion layers underneath. Plus, the buildable formula means that you can easily take it from soft to bold definition. Available in ten shades, Cream Bronzer is easy-to-use and melts effortlessly into to a matte, second-skin seamless finish with comfortable wearability."

Awww, I got sent the wrong shade for me. I get sent these to unbox so they aren't tailored to my skintone like they would be if I had a subscription and filled out the profile. C'est la vie.

"Your future brows begin with a stroke of Genius. Brow Genius Conditioning Brow Serum blends 6 rejuvenating ingredients into one multi-benefit, smart formula that works now and later to create a look you’ll love. Think a smoother, softer, tamer, fuller-looking brow that feels and performs like the brows you’ve always wanted. From peptides, panthenol, and Korean ginseng to biotin and castor oil, this power roster of ingredients is designed to nourish brows, increase manageability and deliver the ultimate brow makeover. Told you it was smart."

Now this I can use! I haven't seen this product yet and I'm stoked to try it on my overplucked brows.

"This easy-to-use gel eyeliner glides on smoothly for easy application and doesn’t dry down rapidly, allowing playtime to smoke out the liner. Along with being long-wearing and waterproof, this eyeliner is transfer resistant and non-flaking."

I love a good waterproof, long-lasting eyeliner.

"This floral-powered sunscreen has an innovative, pore-smoothing texture. Inspired by flower petals and their resiliency against sun, heat, and environmental stressors, antioxidant-rich blooms like desert rose, hibiscus, and jasmine deliver intense moisture and a flawless-looking, invisible finish."

A pore-smoothing sunscreen?! Sounds great! I'll be throwing this in my beach bag this summer.

"Holiday magic gets even more enchanting thanks to our luxuriously rose-inspired, all-in-one palette designed to help you create all your day-to-night looks, easily and brilliantly. We’ve packed this season’s most coveted beauty with 12 deliciously buttery shades and the intense color payoff of dreams so you can effortlessly go from natural to ultra-glam. No makeup artist (or party invite) required. Each highly pigmented texture — think rich, decadent mattes and multidimensional metallics — blends and builds to deliver all the gorgeous effects you’ve been craving."

I actually already have this palette and I love it! Its absolutely gorgeous, rosy tones are flattering on any skin tone and it comes with a blush and bronzer for a complete look. It's an easy palette to pack for a trip and you can get so many looks out of it. Love!

That was the very first (May 2023) Icon Box by IPSY. There were so many fantastic products and an incredibly high value! With the founder of ABH as curator, we got some great ABH products and I also got some amazing skincare. Loving this box!

My Icon Box was worth $415!!! You just can't beat it for the value.
