IPSY GLAM BAG | APRIL 2016 Review

Ipsy April 2016

Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription (make up, skin care, hair care, nail care).  Pricing is only $10 a month and shipping is free (in the US). Each glam bag will contain a mix of 4-5 full size or sample size products.  This subscription is perfect for anyone looking to sample new products before committing to them!

This month’s theme is all about Dreamers!

Dream on! Create looks that celebrate every side of your unique beauty‒from natural and understated to high fashion and ultra-glam. — ipsy.com

I am in love with all of the contents of my bag! I was torn between which of the products I should try out first. Another great thing is that a few of these products are multifunctional…This mama on-the-go definitely needs it!

Ipsy April 2016 Glam Bag

This bag definitely feels like it was inspired by Coachella and the transition of Spring to Summer! The design itself is dreamlike and embodies a free-spirit.

Ipsy April 2016 Pur Lisse

Blue Lotus + White Tea Sheet Mask & Blue Lotus + Seaweed Sheet Mask

I was so excited to find that I’ll be receiving sheet masks this month! I’m pretty sure everyone knows about my sheet mask obsession by now.

I had sampled pur~lisse’s cleanser & make up remover a while back and was very impressed with how gentle it is.  I have very high expectations for these masks!

I received two masks in my glam bag:

The Blue Lotus + White Tea Treatment Sheet Mask is age-defying, nourishing, renewing, and intensely moisturizing. This natural fiber mask infused with Blue Lotus, Seaweed and restorative Asian botanicals delivers antioxidants and minerals to your skin.  This power blend fights soothes & nourishes while White Mulberry brightens and Anise fruit provides continuous moisture, leaving skin healthy, beautiful and radiant.

The Blue Lotus + Seaweed Treatment Sheet Mask is soothing & calming, balancing & restoring, and intensely moisturizing. This natural fiber mask infused with Blue Lotus, White Tea and restorative Asian botanicals delivers antioxidants and minerals to your skin.  This power blend fights free radicals, improves skin texture while White Mulberry brightens and Anise helps firm skin, leaving complexion healthy, beautiful and youthful-looking. — purlisse.com

I am so excited to try these masks out and will be posting up a review for Mask Monday!

Ipsy April 2016 REN

REN Skincare
Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream

Ipsy always has great timing when they send me product types I need a refill on.  I had just ran out of face cream/moisturizer a little bit ago and had been meaning to buy more.

First off, this is a 100% natural product and does not contain harmful substances. It protects your skin from pollution. It also claims to be anti-aging and trains your skin to be less sensitive.  That is definitely a new claim for me!

This is a very lightweight cream and did a great job moisturizing. My skin absorbed the product nicely and did not feel greasy. My face felt hydrated all day.

LipSurgence™ lip creme in wonder

I am a fan of Tarte and have been impressed by products I have come across.  And this lip creme is one of them! It is such an adorable sample! I love that it is shaped like a crayon as I can apply the product with precision.  It is super creamy and it just glides onto my lips.  I got this in the shade Wonder.  It’s a great shade that enhances my natural lip color (which is my preference with lip products!).  Although I haven’t tried it yet, I love that this doubles as a cheek color! The only con I have is that the product transfers very easily.

Ipsy April 2016 StarlooksIpsy April 2016 Starlooks 2

Starlooks
Cream Eye Shadow in Rose Gold

I was kind of iffy about receiving a Starlooks product.  I have not had positive experiences with eyeliners I’ve received in the past.  They were always dried out and the eyeliners would always break on me.

As a result, I did not have high expectations for this product.  Turns out this is a lovely product! I got this in the shade Rose Gold and it is stunning! I had already read reviews and many people said this formula was clumpy and sticky.  I disagree.  It works well if you prime your lids first.  And you’re better off applying thin layers at a time to build up the shade while preventing any clumps from forming or your lids creasing.

Ipsy April 2016 Luxie

Luxie Beauty
Dreamcatcher Tapered Highlighter Brush 522

Sweet! Another multi-use product! I love that this brush can be used for contouring, highlighting, blending, and setting under-eye concealer! The bristles are very soft and fluffy. I’ll definitely be using this everyday!

Again, each product in my glam bag has exceeded my expectations! What were your favorites this month?

XO,
Tracy
