Unboxing My IPSY April 2017 Glam Bag!


First, it got lost in transit. Then it made it to my door. I could barely contain my excitement when I saw the bright metallic pink package sitting in my mailbox. I had been severely stressed out lately and this was one thing I had for me.

I hurried into my room, cleared a space on my desk, ripped open the package and gasped at what I saw.

There nestled in the metallic pink bubble wrap package was a bright red makeup bag in the shape of a carnival ticket. The word “TICKET” was stamped across the front in light purple, a somewhat odd color combo, along with three stars and the ticket number.

My April 2017 IPSY Glam Bag

The products I received were the following (took product descriptions directly from Ipsy’s Website here):

  • Elizabeth Mott: Show Me Your Glow Shimmer Shadow & Highlighter (Use GLOW50 for 50% off any purchase) $25.oo Screen Shot 2017-04-29 at 9.20.49 PM

    • This powder is ultra fine which means it’s totally layerable, so you can go for a subtle, daytime gleam or score a glow that can basically be seen from space.

    • Use it literally anywhere. To name just a few spots: along cheekbones, eyelids, down the bridge of your nose, along collar bones, and even down the front of your legs to add sheen and elongate.

    • It’s cruelty-free!
  • Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Angle Blush Brush $5.00 Screen Shot 2017-04-29 at 9.25.58 PM

    • Hellooooo, throwback! Fourth grade us says that combining Lisa Frank with anything is a no-brainer.

    • The vegan-friendly, synthetic hairs are softer than a teddy bear.

    • Aside from being cuddly and colorful, it’s a solid makeup tool with the perfect slant (key for cheeky looks and contouring).

    • Did we mention the rainbows and unicorns?
  • THEORIE: Marula Oil Transforming Hair Serum (Use LOVEIPSY30 for 30% off & Free Shipping) $26.00 Screen Shot 2017-04-29 at 9.26.10 PM

    • Marula oil has been popping up in beauty products like crazy, and for good reason. It’s incredibly moisturizing, healing, and nourishing.

    • Hair-wise, it adds shine, softens strands, and even protects from heat styling.

    • It’s sulfate-free and perf for color-treated hair (AKA your balayage is safe).
  • Dream by PS Cosmeceutical: Infused Nail Lacquer in Southern Sand (Use IPSY30 for 30% Off): $14.99 Screen Shot 2017-04-29 at 9.26.19 PM

    • We’re convinced this peachy-nude is the perfect neutral shade. It goes with everything and looks gorg on every skin tone.
    • Unlike most light lacquers, you get opaque coverage in just two coats.
    • It’s spiked with grapefruit seed extract, which is pretty much like a green juice for your nail beds (keeping them super healthy, hydrated, and shiny).
  • ColourPop Cosmetics in Swerve: $5  Screen Shot 2017-04-29 at 9.26.32 PM

    • The formula is super creamy, making application a total breeze without any tugging or pulling.

    • Our Creators use these babies for hundreds of crazy-cool eye looks (think: double winged, colored smoky, or negative space graphic).

    • Even if you’re not ready to go super advanced, you can pop this on your waterline or swipe it along your lashes to add instant dramz.

    • We wore this to our bestie’s wedding, sobbed like a baby, and didn’t need to touch up.

The three products I love and are obsessed with are the “Show Me Your Glow”, the Dream by PS Cosmeceutical Infused Nail Lacquer in Southern Sand, and the THEORIE: Marula Oil Transforming Hair Serum.

The nail lacquer is the perfect shade of nude for my translucent alabaster skin and I’m sure it’d look great on any skin tone. You can see a photo of my nails tomorrow on my Instagram here.

“Show Me Your Glow” is also a great highlighter as well since I have a lot of red undertones to my skin it doesn’t add to it and it actually shows up on my pale skin! The Marula Oil Transforming Hair Serum is helping to repair my hair, which I damaged trying to perm it (what was I thinking?) Now my hair isn’t as frizzled or fried!

I’m happy with my April IPSY bag! I only paid $10.00 for $75.99 worth of product!

I’ll definitely be buying these three products in their full size! Did any of these items catch your eye? Did you receive any of these in your IPSY bag? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
