Can I tell you how OBSESSED I am with Ipsy’s April Glam Bag?! Anytime I get an Urban Decay product, the whole bag was worth it to me, but there is SO much more in this bag that I love. So here’s the breakdown of what I got this month:
Urban Dec 24/7 Black Velvet Eyeliner
Starting out by talking about the Urban Decay eyeliner I got. It is black pencil liner, with matte finish. It is travel sized, so perfect to bring with me when I’m traveling home to Iowa, or to throw in my purse for makeup updates before happy hours!
0.03 oz Sample Size, Approx. Value – $15
Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm in Apple Pink
I absolutely LOVE the packaging here and the fact that it comes with an application brush. I have a couple other tinted lip balms that you have to use your finger, or your own separate brush and it just gets messy and/or isn’t as convenient. It is a beautiful color and I was super happy with my Cailyn eyeliner I got in my June 2013 Ipsy bag, which has helped me perfect my smokey eye.
FULL SIZE, Value – $19.00
Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant
I am so excited to try this product, as I have been looking into ways to help improve my skin’s texture and get rid of acne scars. It has great reviews on Sephora, so let’s hope it works. It is a really expensive product ($78 for 2 oz) so let’s see if it is worth the pricetag!
0.25 oz Sample, Approx. Value $9.75
Elizabeth Mott Pop! Goes the Shadow in Champagne
This shadow came at the perfect time as some of my other neutral colors are running out, which are important for me during the work week and to highlight by the arch of my brow and the inner corners of my eye. This is gorgeous shade, so I can’t wait to play around with it.
FULL SIZE, Value $12.99
St. Tropez Gradual Tan Plus Anti-Aging Multi-Action Face
I have been using Jergens face lotion and body + firming lotion for tanning purposes (and to get glowing skin) so far this spring and I have loved it for many years (and it seems to just keep getting better). With that said, I am excited to try this brand because I have heard great things about the St. Tropez tanning mousse. Hopefully the face tanner will be good as well!
0.5 fl oz Sample Size, Approx. Value $10.94
$10 for Bag, Total value of bag: $67.68

These are really great items…I like St. Tropez, not that I need it, but when I trained to be a Beauty Therapist, we used it & I always thought it worked really well. Happy Easter doll, I hope you have a joyful and blessed time Xx

Thank you! I hope you have a wonderful Easter as well! 🙂

you got a great bag. More and more I see these post for different blogger. I have been thinking of signing up.
RachelApril 18, 2014 at 8:02 AM
You should! Some of my favorite products have come in these bags, and it is always fun to get something like this in the mail! And for $10, I never feel bad if I only like one thing. I mean, I spend that much on one makeup item from the drugstores!

It looks like this month’s bag was a big win! I love the color of the tinted lip balm!
LyddiegalApril 18, 2014 at 8:49 AM
I love the color of the balm, and I bet the eyeliner just looks AMAZING on.
DarcyApril 18, 2014 at 9:26 AM
This looks like the best beauty bag I have ever seen! I can’t believe you got an urban decay product!! And I am dying to try out that lip gloss… one of my favorite beauty vloggers featured it in a post this week and it looks amazing!
SharonApril 18, 2014 at 9:27 AM
Ooh you got some great stuff this month! I love the color of that lip balm…very pretty for spring!
RachelApril 18, 2014 at 10:01 AM
I’m interesting in the St. Tropez tanning products- I need a good “glow”
LeighApril 18, 2014 at 10:49 AM
I’m in love with this months bag as well! It looks like we got the same bag minus the tanner. I think I got mousse instead.

Wow, that IS a good bag! Lucky!
ShannonApril 18, 2014 at 11:15 AM
That looks like a great bag! I would absolutely love to know how that Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion works….I’m definitely in need of something to help with the acne scars! Also, San Tropez tanner is amazing! I’ve never used the face stuff, but I’ve used the gradual tan body lotion and it works to perfection.

Great items! The lip balm has amazing color!

Love seeing these reviews! I am a Jergens self tanner person too. I’ve read great things about St Tropez, but it’s SO pricey. I’m afraid to try it and get addicted!

Haha I’m the same way! Also, I figure if it isn’t broke, why fix it? My face does have a hard time keeping a tan though, even with the Jergens lotion, so this might be worth it if it works!

I cancelled my Ipsy bag a long time ago because I just didn’t feel like I was getting quality products, but this looks like a decent bag!!
RachelApril 18, 2014 at 3:05 PM
I LOVE the makeup bag for this month! Love these Ipsy reviews they give the best products in their bags.

I haven’t received my April Ipsy bag yet, but I did receive my birch box and it was disappointing this month. The CC cream “sample” was literally so small I couldn’t even do my nose with it (I have a big nose.) and it was the wrong color! I was so mad. How can I try it out if there isn’t enough to try?
Carmen VogueApril 21, 2014 at 9:34 AM
I love the color of the tinted lip balm!
Amanda KathrynApril 21, 2014 at 12:29 PM

Love these items! I need to try the St. Tropez lotion!
GinnyApril 21, 2014 at 4:26 PM
I think the lip gloss and eyeshadow look great, perfect for spring!
