April Ipsy Glam Bag

My first Ipsy bag finally arrived!!! I think I'm in love. This bag is definitely more fitting for me than Birchbox is. Guys, you get FULL SIZED make up products! Plus, every order comes in an adorable little makeup bag. Not a paper one. An actual fabric makeup bag. How amazing is that?

So this is my April Ipsy bag! This month was "Pretty in Pink".

I don't know if every bag comes in one of these hot pink envelopes, but it totally made my day. 

This is the awesome makeup bag they sent. Super cute. I love that it's a plastic type material so it's easily washable. I need that in a travel makeup bag!
   
This is what came in my bag. I seriously can't get over that it's full sized items! The hair product obviously isn't, but that's totally ok.


 First we'll start with the nail polish, only because it's my least favorite item. I think it would be awesome for a nude french manicure, but that's not something I do very often. Well, ever. I prefer color on my nails. But I'll keep it around just in case. Maybe I'll use it when I get married. 

Next, onto the eyeshadow. I received a pink-ish/bronze-ish colored mineral eye shadow. I'm a huge fan of mineral make up so I was really excited to get this one. My friend, Angie, received an eye shadow duo, which was really nice too. I think I would have been happy with either product.


The blush is next. I was lucky enough that mine didn't break during shipping. Angie's did and from what I hear, other peoples did as well. Hopefully Ipsy takes care of that. Right now I'm insanely pale because winter refuses to end, so this blush is a little bright on me right now. It will be perfect once I get a little color!

Finally we come to the trial size of Sexy Hair's Soy Renewal. Love! It smells good, made my hair shiny and less frizzy. I haven't been wearing my hair straight for a couple of months now, but it will help tame the morning after curls when I need to leave the house without doing my full hair routine.


I'm definitely a HUGE fan of the Ipsy bag. If you are looking for a "girly" monthly subscription, go for the Ipsy! For $10 a month, you won't regret it.

    1. So much better than Birchbox! I have this months Box sitting at my Mom's house. We'll see how it is this month. I'm not really excited about it. The eye shadow is awesome.

  2. They sent me an e-mail and are going to send a new blush out asap. What color blush did you get? I heard there were two different shades. I agree with you on the nail polish. I got the other shade and you have to paint a few layers to even get the full effect. So glad you loved your bag! I am excited for next month! lol

    1. That's good. I'm glad they are going to replace all the broken ones. What a bummer! I don't remember the name, but I know I got the same one you got. Total disappointment with the nail polish. I put 3 coats on one finger and it just looked like clear polish. :(
