Ipsy April 2014

I had unreasonably high hopes for the April Ipsy bag! Why? Well, April is my birthday month (stay tuned for a special announcement tomorrow!) and I wanted this bag to be amazing.

So, was it?

This month, Ipsy subscribers received 5 products an I am pretty sure everyone got the UD Black Velvet liner. The theme was 'Beauty Rocks', which was cute, but the bag could have been done better.

What I got:

St. Tropez Gradual Tan Plus Anti-Aging Multi-Face Action ($11): Unfortunately I probably won't use this. I wish it was a face/body tanner because I do not have a body tanner right now. I also like my pale-ness.

dr. brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant ($9.75): I like this! Considering the 2oz size retails for $78, I am really happy I can at least try it out!

Rainbow Honey Cosmetics nail polish in Midnight Fountain ($5): Right up my alley---blue glitter polish from a brand I have always wanted to try!

Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-on Eye Pencil in Black Velvet ($17): This is almost full size!! The fact that Velvet is on the packaging and not just in the name makes me wonder if UD is going to release a whole velvet line?! I love this so far. It is creamy and matte. 

Mary Kay At Play Jelly Lipgloss in Berry Me ($10): Full size and a perfect color for me!

Total value: $52.75!!

Even though I won't use the face tanner, the value for me is still over $40 for $10, with some awesome products that I have always wanted to try and that are new (UD Velvet and MK@Play).

What I liked about this month's bag is that I got a good mix of things...lipgloss, skincare, face, eyes, and nails! Perfect! I also love the music/rock theme.

From top to bottom: UD Black Velvet, Mary Kay Berry Me, dr. brandt Microdermabrasion, and St. Tropez Face Tanner.

My favorite thing from the bag is the jelly lip gloss! It feels so comfortable and really wraps around the lips, keeping in moisture and making them look plump and hydrated. There is no discernible smell or taste.

April's Ipsy was a success! Yay!

  1. NICE! Isn't that Mary Kay @Play Jelly gloss great? I love 'em!

    1. I love them too Tracy! Definitely going to order more!

  2. You got a good bag!! I also just realized that I am probably not going to self tan any time soon so the face tanner is kind of useless to me right now too lol!! And I tried out that face scrub last night and I really like it!

    1. I'm glad you like the scrub! Haha yeah...that tanner was a miss for me!

  3. Awesome stuff ... especially the 24/7 liner :) xx

  4. That polish looks beautiful! I also got the UD eyeliner and microdermabrasion in my ipsy bag.

  5. Wow. Loved your Ipsy bag goodies. I am waiting for my Ipsy bag too. Happy weekend :-)
