April 2014 Ipsy Bag

I'm so excited to show you what I got in this month's Ipsy bag! March's bag was disappointing (and only had 4 products instead of the usual 5) so I was very pleased after opening this one.

ipsy is a monthly subscription service that costs $10 a month and comes in a unique makeup bag and 5 full or deluxe sample size makeup, beauty, and hair products

I don't always love the bag but this months isn't too bad. it is a nice size and the material seems like good quality. The navy color is really pretty.

Here's an overview of everything from the bag...

Probably the most exciting item was 
Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet glide-on eye pencil in Black Velvet

I was also thrilled to see this next product
Cover FX mattifying primer with anti-acne treatment 

I've never tried this brand before but I've heard of it and only good things! This product is perfect for me because I have oily acne prone skin. I can't wait to give this a try!

Next up is a lip gloss...
MaryKayAtPlay jelly lip gloss in Teddy Bare

I really like the color of this gloss. It's a nice sheer/natural nude that make it very versatile. But I noticed from the swatch that it is very sticky. This likely means it will be very long lasting but at the same time it isn't very comfortable on the lips... we'll see though. I'm still exciting to try it, just not on a windy day with my hair down...

I saw this product in other people's bags a few months ago and wanted it so bad! I couldn't believe it when I opened my bag and there it was!

Demeter roll on perfume oil in Jasmine
This stuff smells amazing and is quite long lasting. I used it for the first time today and could smell it through almost the whole word day.

And finally....

City Color Mousse Eyeshadow in White Gold  

This is a really interesting product that I think I'm going to like. It is a mousse texture like the name says but once it sets it is slightly tacky which I imagine will make it a great eyeshadow base. Plus, it stayed on my hand even after I washed them so I know it will be long lasting.

Here's the swatch before blending...

And here I've blended it out as I would on my eyelid

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I got in my bag this month. Definitely $10 well spent!



  1. Looks like a great bag this month! Ipsy is the subscription service I would get if I were to bite the bullet and try one. :)

  2. I've been doing it since last July and I really love it! It's so much fun! Plus, it satisfies my urge to buy a lot of the makeup I normally would but for only $10 a month so I feel like it is a win-win! Thanks for stopping by! :)
