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: I’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 it’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 month’s bag because I love experimenting with new lip colors! Both of this month’s lip colors were nude - which was a perfect fit for what I needed since I’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 they’ll be perfect for low key lip days. I’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), I’m hoping that this kind of luck continues and that ipsy’s algorithm for figuring out individual preferences continues to improve. Overall, I’m happy with this month’s products and glad I’m back with ipsy. What were your thoughts on this month’s ipsy products? 

Thanks for reading! ♥
