This is one of my absolute favourite bags from ipsy! I am in love with the boho theme! The bag is summery and I love the texture and colours - it's definitely one of their more unique bag designs!
JulieG Nail Color (Damsel)
This polish is a mid-tone pink crème. I'm particular about pink shades and I'm not feeling this one. It's up for sale. (Click on the Shop tab near the top right of the page. It'll bring to my Pinterest board where I have items posted for sale.)
Klorane Dry Shampoo w/ Oat Milk
$9 / 50 ml
Dry Shampoos are a convenient way to keep your hair fresh between washes. They're perfect for on-the-go styling, post-workout and extending the life of blowouts.
MicaBeauty Eye Primer
$22.48 / 4 g
I got an email from ipsy notifying us that subscribers have reported seeing marks or areas of discoloration on this product:
We take every product question from our community very seriously and want to share an update with all of you. Mica Beauty has confirmed that all individual ingredients were checked by a certified lab and approved for safety. The final product also passed a microbiology test and no mold was found. The brand believes any marks you're seeing in or on the product are the result of bubbles produced during the production cooling process which could take on a greenish/blackish tint.
I see one tiny spot on mine, but I'm not worried. However, I'm not a fan of eye primers in this format, so I won't be keeping this.
Hikari Cosmetics Blush (Tango)
I'm not sure if this is full size, but it looks like it is too me. This blush is super pretty, but it's a bit too bright for my skin tone.
theBalm Cosmetics Nude Dude Eyeshadow Single (Flirty)
I love theBalm eyeshadows and love the packaging of these samples! Flirty is a shimmering golden violet which I really like.
April's ipsy Glam Bag has a total value of $53.47 which seems inflated due to the overpriced Eye Primer. I'm not ecstatic about the some of the products I received, but the awesome bag makes up for it! ipsy is a subscription that sends variations in products each month, so I always recommend that you fill out your style profile AND product reviews. Hopefully you get products that match your preferences and you get the most out of this subscription.
