What's in my April Ipsy Bag


After doing my Birchbox unboxing yesterday...I knew I couldn't wait to show you girls what I got in my Ipsy bag this month! I love Ipsy! Every month when I see that bright pink bag in my mail box, my heart leaps with excitement! This months bag was really pretty, and unique! Thank you Ipsy for providing me with the cutest makeup bags ever! I swear, I never have to buy small makeup bags ever again. The bags are a fun part of receiving this beauty subscription.

This months theme was "Beautifully Bohemian". The bag looks like it was woven with a kind of hemp material. I love the bright colors throughout it. Very bohemian chic!

Check out my March Ipsy Haul to find out more about what Ipsy bags are, if you are unfamiliar with them. 

Let's take a look at what I got, shall we!

The first thing I pulled out was this mascara! Let me remind you, Ipsy sends "sample" beauty products, but girl this is a legit full size mascara!! Like, WHAT! :-)! Yes, I was totally happy when I saw this! This mascara is from the brand Essence Cosmetics, it is their "Lash Princess Mascara". I love the packaging of this product. The sleek black with baby pink print is absolutely adorable. I also love the cute princess like designs on it. The brush looks really nice. It has a nice curve on it. The bristles look like they would do a great job at separating your lashes, while adding volume. I can't wait to use this. I am a sucker for a good mascara.

Side note...do you know how long you should keep your mascara? If you answered no, check this out!

Next I pulled out, this roller ball perfume from Jorel Parker. The scent is "Femina'. I laughed a little bit because I got a similar scent in my Birchbox this month. Very ironic! Anyyyway, it smells really good. Very girly. Light floral scent with a hint of sweet. The downfall is, the scent doesn't last very long. On me at least. It's still something to have in your purse, for those times you want to freshen up a bit on the go!

This was a nice surprise! I have never used eyeshadow's from The Balm before, but I've heard so many great things. I was excited to see this single shadow fall out of my bag! I have always been curious about their shadows, solely based on the way the packaging looks. Like, who doesn't want to use a shadow palette filled with hunky men characters lol!?!

The shadow is from their "Nude Dude" palette. My color was "fit". 
Hey cutie!! :-)

I love this color. I can't wait to use it. It is a shimmery golden color, that I know is going to look BOMB on my lids! I love golden colors. I think they compliment us chocolate girls beautifully!

Next up is this little guy! It is a hair serum made with argan oil by Theorie, which is a brand I have never heard of. I personally like oils for my hair, so I was pretty stoked when I pulled this out. It comes with a little applicator, which is pretty much pointless. You can't really use it to get the product out. So you have to end up pouring the oil into your hand, which creates a huge oily mess. It says it's supposed to restore and moisturize your hair. I don't know about all that, but it smells good. I don't know. I will have to get back to you on this one. Did you get this in your bag? How do you feel about it? I think it's kind of pointless! I could be wrong though.

Lastly but surly not least to come out of my bag, was this little gem! Girl I am a sucker for a lip product, especially a pink lip product, that happens to be a gloss! YASSSS! So of course when I pulled this out, I was all like "thank you makeup goddesses" yall know I love a good gloss! I love the packaging of this gloss. It is so cute and sleek. Perfect to throw in my purse when I am on the go. The brand is Starlooks and the shade is "cuddle"...how sweet! When I swatched it on my hand you could barley see it, which was a major let down, since it looks so pigmented in the packaging. I tried it on my lips, it showed up a little better. I think it will work well on top of another product. If you are not into gloss, you will hate this, because it is definitely a little sticky, which isn't everyone's cup of tea.

So was I feeling April's Ipsy bag, or nah!?!? Drum roll please..............YASSS! I loved this months bag. Over all it was bombskis! I can say I pretty much liked everything they sent me, and can use all the products as well. I am having serious thoughts about cancelling my Birchbox subscription. My last couple of boxes sucked and I found the only thing useful about them was the box they came in, which makes great storage btw, lol! What do you guys think? Are there other subscription boxes out there that I should be trying? I don't know, but I love Ipsy! Check them out if you haven't already.

SOUND OFF! What did you get in your Ipsy Bag this month? How do you feel Ipsy compares to Birchbox? Let me know about other beauty subscription boxes in the comments below. I'd love to hear from you!
