I feel like a giddy school girl when my new ipsy bag comes in. I just can't wait to open it up and see what goodies I get. This is my review of the April Glam Bag. Just look at what many of us got this month for only $10.
Isn't this a cute makeup bag?
This month's card reads:
This month, create looks that celebrate every side of your unique
beauty-from natural and understated to high fashion and ultra-glam.
Each glam bag contained two pur~lisse Beauty
Blue Lotus + White Tea Sheet Mask & Blue Lotus + Seaweed Sheet Masks. I haven't tried them yet but will be soon. The description on ipsy's site says: Each individually wrapped sheet traps a powerful solution of Asian botanicals, seaweed, white tea and antioxidant rich Blue Lotus in your skin. The result? A plumper, more radiant complexion.
This highlight trio is from City Color Cosmetics. I haven't used it as a highlighter yet, but I really like them as a soft eyeshadow. Ipsy does say:
Always apply to these 6 spots for a super dewy glow:
- Bridge of nose
- Inner corners of eyes
- Cupid's bow
I've heard a lot of good things about Tarte Cosmetics, so I was happy to see this. It's LipSurgence™ lip crème in Wonder. Just the right colour again. It goes on so well and makes my lips so soft.
This duo fiber blush brush from Crown Brush is another hit. I use it for last month's Pixi by Petra blush duo. I use one sde for the blush and flip the brush to apply the highlighter. What is totally cool about it is, if you look carefully, you can see the dip in it. There is one on both sides for proper finger placement.
Finally, we have the Luxe Longwear Eye Pencil in Jet from Starlooks. It's a kohl eye liner pencil that glides on smoothly and stays on. You can even use a fluffy brush to create a smokey eye look. My only issue with this is that it is very fragile and the tip broke off on my first use.
Overall this is another great Glambag. I can't wait until May...
