For this post, I want to show you guys what I got in my April 2014 Ipsy bag! If you're at all interested, I really do recommend giving Ipsy a try; it's only $10 a month and you generally get a good amount of nice stuff!
Every month, along with four to five deluxe sample sized/full sized products, you get a different make-up bag! Most of these are quite cute and, while I don't really have a need for a different make-up bag every month, I like to collect them! This month, the theme was "Beauty Rocks", which I assume is meant to go hand in hand with all the music festivals going on.
This month we got five products! Last month I was a little disappointed to see that we only got four and I was slightly worried that that was going to become the norm, but it doesn't seem so. I'll start with the product listed first in my Glam Room:
One thing that I really like about Ipsy is that they have a good mix of drug store and high-end products. Case in point, I got something from Urban Decay in my bag!
Next I got something kind of interesting:
Big, shiny swatch! I used waaaaay too much product here; a little goes a long way!
This is the first mousse-consistency make-up product I've ever used, so maybe I'm just not used to this type of texture before. This product is petrolatum, preservative, and mineral oil-free, which is especially nice for a drugstore brand. This is the full size and it retails for $3.99.
Another high-end product sample I got this month was the Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion skin exfoliant.
Finally, I got a travel-sized sample of Big Sexy Hair Root Plump Volumizing Spray Mousse.
And that was my April 2014 Ipsy bag! Overall, I got five products; one is full sized, one is possibly full sized, two are travel sized, and one is deluxe sample sized. The total value of my bag, minus the lip balm, is $31.44, which is super awesome, considering how I only spent $10 for this bag, shipping included! I know I say it all the time, but seriously, if you have any interesting in beauty products what-so-ever, and you have $10 you can spare a month, sign up for Ipsy!
Thanks for reading! <3
