My favorite time of the month is when I get my glam bag from IPSY, and my April bag just arrived!
I love the design this month because it screams "summer festivals" to me.
Let's break down what's inside:
1.)OFRA Cosmetics Blush in "Rendezvous"
2.) THEORIE Marula Oil Transforming Hair Serum
3.)Adesse New York Cupuaçu Butter Lip Balm
4.)Ciaté London Mini Bamboo Bronzer in "Palm Island"
5.)PEEK Beauty Naturally Long Wearing Eye Shadow in "250k8"
The eyeshadow I didn't care for much.
Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful bronze metallic shade (picture doesn't do it justice) with reflective gold pigments when the light catches it, but after receiving a bunch of eyeshadows in the exact same shade, it starts getting a little old.
(Retail price unknown)
As far as the bronzer goes, from the swatch alone, it seemed quite buttery and easy to blend.
I also love the fact that it is matte and isn't overly dark for my pale skin.
I think it will give a beautiful sunkissed glow.
(Retails for $28 full size)
Let's move on to the OFRA blush that I received.
It definitely comes off a lot warmer in the swatch than it looks in the packaging.
I'm interested to see how it'll come off on my face because it looks more like a bronzer than a blush to me personally.
(Retails for $15 full size)
The lip balm smells like peppermint and looks slightly glossy when applied to the lips.
(Retail price $24)
Since I got it in my bag, I will use it, but I probably wouldn't go out of my way to repurchase it once I run out.
At the end of the day, lip balm is lip balm, and I'll use whichever one is laying around closest to me.
The same goes for the hair oil.
(Retails for $26 full size)
Overall, I would rate the bag a 4/5 this month.
(higher rating for the cool bag design haha)
