What Did I Think About My April Ipsy Bag?
I was so excited to get my April 2015 Ipsy bag last month because it was filled with a bunch of products I knew I’d use on a daily basis. Everything inside my bag was really practical and arrived at the perfect moment. I had been in need of a new moisturizer, what with the drastic change in the weather and all, and of course, I’m always delighted by the prospect of a new mascara. The theme of April’s bag was Beautifully Bohemian, which I feel like the color palette and of course the bag itself reflected perfectly. Let’s get started!
KCO Colors by Beauty Brands Cream Lipstick
The only complaint I have about this month’s Ipsy bag is about this product. I used it once and really loved the color, but when I went in for a reapplication, it snapped and broke. I ended up just throwing it out because it was a hassle to worry about whether or not lipstick was getting all over the inside of my bag. I definitely wish I had gotten to use this more but clearly it wasn’t made very well.
Essence Cosmetics Lash Princess Mascara
I’m a diehard Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara fan, but I’m constantly on the lookout for another great mascara. (It’s better to have two favorites than just one, right?) I really liked the packaging of this particular mascara. (Mean Girls voice: It’s like, really pretty.) However, I found it works best when you’re aiming for a more natural look. If you want your lashes to look naturally long (without a drastic look) this mascara is the way to go.
Lather Ultra Face Lotion
I used and continue to use this face lotion every single day. As mentioned in the introduction above, I was in desperate need of a new moisturizer now that the weather had taken a turn. Since the frigid cold days of January and February are long gone, I no longer required my super heavy face cream. This lotion is light on your skin, makes it feel and look great, and added bonus: It smells like ginger!
Mullein & Sparrow Mint Lip & Cheek Tint
While I haven’t gotten around to using the Mullein & Sparrow tint on my cheeks yet, I absolutely love the effect of using it on my lips. The best part is you don’t need to keep reapplying because it tints your lips for the whole length of the day. It’s perfect for one of those quick and easy looks at the office.
the Balm Cosmetics NUDE Dude Eyeshadow Single
Give me any eyeshadow in the nude spectrum and I’m absolutely sold. I love the shimmer this particular eyeshadow has. It pairs great with the Naked Palette.
That’s all for April! I’m currently waiting with bated breath for May to arrive… I’m hoping for a liquid eyeliner.
