Ipsy Glam Bag: April 2014

Hi everyone!

It’s Ipsy Glam Bag time! These are always so much fun to receive.

This month’s theme is Beauty Rocks: Life is a dance floor, so why not live it up, sing out loud, and shake them hips?! This month, we’re celebrating our unique beauty to the sound of tunes and festivals that fill the spring air. So, whether you’re chilling in a campground or spinning in a ballroom, all of your April “Beauty Rocks!” products will help your lovely look become a hit!

Let’s take a look at the products I received.

$ Note: All prices are in US dollars. $

This month’s bag is dark blue and has an image of a turntable on it. The inside is just plain black.

Cailyn – Tinted Lip Balm in Apple Pink | full size! | $19

Indulge in colors that last and formulas that enrich! This ultra matte, super moisturizing lip balm offers you rich colors with amazing staying power.

I love tinted lip balms, although this one seems a lot more pigmented than what I usually consider a tinted lip balm. I’m looking forward to trying it out though.

Demeter – Jasmine Perfume Oil Roll On | 0.29 oz | $10 (other formats/sizes available)

An exotic, sweet, warm floral bouquet. Demeter’s Jasmine is the experience of the living flowers picked on a beautiful spring night. Wear alone or layer with your favorite Demeter fragrance. With over 250 fragrances, the Demeter Fragrance library is inspired by everyday objects and experiences.

This smells SO GOOD! It smells like, well, jasmine! It’s definitely something I’ll be wearing once the weather gets warmer because it feels very spring/summer.

dr. brandt – microdermabrasion | 7.5g sample | 60g/$78

The dr. brandt® microdermabrasion gently sweeps away dead skin cells and softens skin texture, which enables better absorption of skincare products and helps diminish the appearance of fine lines, acne marks, and skin discolorations. A great at home alternative to professional clinical treatments. Safe to use for all skin types. For best results use with dr. brandt® skincare products.

I have not tried a microdermabrasion product before so I’m looking forward to trying this one, but I will wait until I give birth first because I don’t know if it’s pregnancy safe.

Elizabeth Mott – pop! goes the shadow in Champagne | full size! | $12.99

The Elizabeth Mott pop! goes the eyeshadow is the ultimate eyeshadow that’s long lasting, easy to apply, and effortlessly blends. Buildable colors will take you from subtle highlights to dramatic smokey eyes. With pop! goes the shadow, eye shadow creasing is a thing of the past. Get ready to try the eye shadow that will change your life!

This is a colour I already use (as highlight or for blending and such) so I will definitely give this one a try. The swatch I did on my hand is very pigmented so hopefully it will transfer well onto the eye and have a good lasting formula.

Urban Decay – 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil in Black Velvet | 0.03 oz sample | 0.04 oz/$20

A must for smoky-eye fanatics: an ultra-plush version of UD’s creamy, waterproof 24/7 formula. Create perfectly blended-out or rich, precise lines that are blacker-than-black.

So excited about this product!



This bag’s value comes up to over $66, which is pretty good!

I was hoping to get a Rainbow Honey nail polish in my bag, but I was not so lucky. I’m still very happy with the products I received this month, I like them all!

The Ipsy Glam Bag is a monthly subscription that costs $10 in the US and $15 for us Canadians. Each month, subscribers receive a beautiful Glam Bag with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products.
