April 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag


I mentioned in my latest Birchbox review that I rejoined a few beauty subscriptions so that I could continue to supply my mother-in-law with lots and lots of samples. I figured why not give Ipsy another try? I never (and I do mean never) go to my mother-in-law’s house empty-handed. I hate just tossing a bunch of goodies into a plastic shopping bag. There’s nothing special about that. At least now I’ll always have a pretty new bag to toss all of her goodies into. Presentation is everything!

Now onto my first Ipsy Glam Bag of the year!

When I first saw that I was getting the Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Cheeks Blush in Peach Pink I was planning on including it in my mother-in-law’s bag. But after swatching it I think I’m going to hold onto it. No worries, I’ve got like a million other blushes I can give her instead. The plastic packaging makes it really difficult to open, but the product itself makes up for the flimsy packaging. It was soft and just glided onto my hand. And the peachy pink shade is perfect! I’ll totally work this into a look later on this week. Or next.

There’s not much for me to say about the tarte cosmetics LipSurgence™ lip crème in wonder. I’ve tried a few of these in the past, but they’re not something I reach for often. Or at all if I’m being honest. I’m sure the mother-in-law will love it. It’s a really pretty shade!

The Crown Brush C427 Duo Fiber Blush Brush is so soft! And while one can never have too many brushes, I’ll be including this in my mother-in-law’s bag because she doesn’t have any brushes!

I really try to get into sheet masks, but I’ve yet to find one that doesn’t cause me to break out. And since my skin has been doing so well lately I’m not going to mess that up. My mother-in-law doesn’t suffer with super sensitive skin and has loved all of the other sheet masks I’ve passed on to her. I’m sure she will love the pur~lisse Beauty Blue Lotus + White Tea Sheet Mask & Blue Lotus + Seaweed Sheet Mask.

Nomad Cosmetics NOMAD x Marrakesh Intense Eyeshadow in Desert Sands is a really pretty bronze eyeshadow. It’s so soft and buttery! And nicely pigmented too! I’m sure I have a few similar shades on hand, but I’ll hold onto this one for a while.

Overall I’d have to say this was a pretty cool bag. Even though I’m passing on the majority of the products, they’re products that I just know my mother-in-law will love. She even gets a cute bag with it all!

    • It does appear to be much better from what I remember. I wasn’t too crazy about it when I first signed up a year or so ago.

  6. Wow, this has to be the best Ipsy bag I’ve ever seen. A Crown Brush, a Tarte Lipsurgence, 2 sheet masks, and more makeup??? The bags I used to get back in the day when I suscribed were so far from being this good!

  7. Hi Lisa, You are so thoughtful. I really like your idea of reusing these beauty bags:-) Tarte LipSurgence are one of the favorite lip products of all time because of their minty scent. This shade in wonder is so beautiful.
