Ipsy Glam Bag: April 2016

Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription that gives subscribers 4-5 sample and full size products for $10 a month. All of the beauty samples also come in a handy little makeup bag. I love that all of Ipsy's products come in these adorable bags because they are insanely useful for holding just about anything!

Nth Degree: Moroccan Argan Oil & Keratin Hair Serum

My hair has been super frizzy lately (maybe because I permed it and now I use my hairdryer every day - oops!) so I'm definitely starting to appreciate hair serums that help to keep that frizz away! Unfortunately, subscription boxes have been giving me so many products that I'm having a really hard time keeping up! I already use quite a few different moroccan oil type products so I'm excited to give this a try as well.

Lab2: Just Blending In Brush

News flash: Iโ€™m trying to branch out and actually incorporate eyeshadow into my makeup routine - eek! I get so much eyeshadow from subscription boxes that I figured I might as well try to use them for something! I have monolids, which means I do not have a crease, and have definitely struggled with how to use eyeshadow to enhance my eyes. YouTube tutorials have been a huge help but itโ€™s still a work in progress since half the time I end up looking like I just got punched. I currently do not own an eyeshadow blending brush so this brush actually came at the absolute perfect time!

Starlooks: Eye Pencil in Jet

I'm trying to stay open towards testing out different types of eyeliner, however, I have a very established eyeliner routine that I'm not looking to change anytime soon. Most of the time, any eyeliner I receive from subscription boxes becomes a waste so I really try to indicate this in my profile so that I get less of these products. Unfortunately, I'm still receiving a lot of eyeliner, which I'm not too happy about :(

Nudestix: Lip & Cheek Pencil in Mystic

Buxom Cosmetics: Liquid Lipstick in Centerfold

Definitely excited that I received two lip products in this monthโ€™s bag because I love experimenting with new lip colors! Both of this monthโ€™s lip colors were nude - which was a perfect fit for what I needed since Iโ€™ve been looking to add more nude lip colors to my collection! Both of these shades are extremely close to my actual lip color so theyโ€™ll be perfect for low key lip days. Iโ€™m a happy camper :)

I am actually super happy with my ipsy for this month! Minus the eyeliner, it actually feels like a good fit for my needs (I love getting lip products & makeup tools), Iโ€™m hoping that this kind of luck continues and that ipsyโ€™s algorithm for figuring out individual preferences continues to improve. Overall, Iโ€™m happy with this monthโ€™s products and glad Iโ€™m back with ipsy. What were your thoughts on this monthโ€™s ipsy products?
