The April Glam Bag looks like an explosion of tie-dye colors!
Here’s the backside view of the bag. This is cute for beach bag beauty products this summer.
The Ipsy theme for April is “Dream On.”
Everything in my bag for April!
Whoopsie: they forgot an item. My bag was supposed to contain a brush. I emailed Ipsy, and they responded in about 12 hours, which was good. Not so good: they asked me to check the pink mailer for the brush, which I thought was annoying because I already checked it. If you’re ever missing an item in your bag it’s worth checking and pre-empting that unnecessary exchange.
Luxie Beauty Dreamcatcher Tapered Highlighter Brush ($32) Update: Here it is! I originally included in the review the stock photo of the missing brush, which has since made its way to me. This was the first time I have ever had to deal with Ipsy customer service – and honestly, I’m impressed that I’ve never had to before. Great brush! Vegan & synthetic – and perfect for doing my contouring with!
I love purlisse! I didn’t even realize until the spoilers that they made sheet masks! I received one of each – white tea is for nourishing and renewing not and seaweed is for soothing and balancing!
tarte LipSurgence Lip Creme ($12.80) The color I received was wonder. I thought the color was a lot prettier on than in the tube – and I almost never think that. The Tarte creme isn’t my personal fave because it uses mint in the formula, although it doesn’t taste too much like it.
Starlooks Cream Eye Shadow in Rose Gold ($9?) All of Starlooks “perfect size” cosmetics are about $9 so that’s what I valued this as. This was a little uneven in coverage but the color was pretty. You probably know that Starlooks has their own subscription but they have so many versions and have changed it so many times in the past few months that I can’t even keep up with it right now.
Adesse New York Infused Gel Effect Nail Lacquer ($18) I had to see what organic infused meant: the polish includes organic bamboo extract, argan and shea oils and the color is a Irina, a pretty dove grey color. It’s 5-free and vegan, too.
I sometimes wish I could block polishes because I get so many, but it’s neat to test out a totally new-to-me brand! This was a decent bag with a super high retail value of $104. I am laughing at myself saying decent – who wouldn’t want all of this for $10?
