Ipsy Glam Bag April 2013
I bit the bullet and signed up for the Ipsy Glam bag. I like variety in my beauty subs but mostly leaning towards cosmetics. I like skin and hair care but not when the whole sub it full of it...repeatedly. After seeing so many great Ipsy Glam bags posted about I had to get in on it.
April’s bag is all about Pretty in Pink. I have to say for my first bag I am super happy! I find pink to be a great colour for attaining a more youthful appearance when used right. And I am all for looking more youthful HAHA
The makeup bag is very nice, white with pink trim. I really like the pink lining inside. But the bag is white. Me and white do not bode well together. White on me is like a magnet for dirt and accidents. White purses always end up super dirty, white shirts end up with my lunch somewhere on the boob area, white pants always seem to get some stain on them; pen, grass, heck even once my dad’s dog just finished his business and jumped on my lap. Lots of screaming there HAHA. So this bag will inadvertently get makeup finger prints all over it. Hopefully that’s all. HEHE grossed out yet?
Sation Nail Lacquer in Love at First Bite. ($5.00 USD @store.misspn.com)Love at First Bite is a peachy pink jelly. It definitely needs three to four coats for opacity. This is not a colour I have in my stash. It works really well with my skin tone. I do like the colour but it seemed to take a loooong time to dry. I swatched it on my thumb and after half an hour it was still gummy. I am going to try my OPI quick dry drops on it. I can’t wait an hour for a polish to dry. I gots things to do man!
Sexy Hair Soy Renewal ($21.95 USD Ulta)I am looking forward to trying this product. Anything with Argan Oil in it has to be good right? I have never tried a hair product with Soy in it yet. I am in love with my Macadamia Nut Oil right now so it will have to beat that for me to want to repurchase. I know Chatters sell Big Sexy Hair in Canada. Did I see it at Shoppers Drug Mart? Hmmm I can’t remember for sure but I think I did...
MICA Beauty Mineral Eyeshadow in Earth ($14.95 USD @micabeauty.com/$15.00 Cdn @SpaBoutique.ca)Very pretty pink shimmer. I will need to use this over my Pixie Epoxy for sure. I think this will best used for adding sparkle over another shadow. Since it is a mineral shadow it has many uses; adding pigmentation to glosses, highlighter etc...
Be a Bombshell Blush in Sweet Cheeks ($16.00 USD @beabombshellcosmetics.com)This medium satin pink blush is my favorite from this bag. The formula is buttery in texture and super pigmented so you need to apply lightly. It actually lasts on me longer than most blushes do. I am in love with this blush so far. I have only had it 3 days LOL. I wish the coupon code was good for Canada because I would order more now! Like I said LOVE!

So for my inaugural Ipsy Glam Bag, I am ecstatic. Seriously it is a joy to get makeup. I haven’t been this happy since I got my February Benefit Topbox. $10 plus shipping = $$ well spent.
