Ipsy Glam Bag April 2016

This month has flown by!!! I can’t believe that I completely forgot to post what I got in my ipsy glam bag!  So, even though my May bag will be here soon, I am still going to show you all what I got because I always loving seeing what everyone else received in their bags.

(If you don’t know what ipsy is you can check out my previous post all about it by clicking HERE)

This month’s glam bag is super cute!  Orange, yellow, and blue multicolored background with a tie dyed like pattern.  I love the colors of this bag’s print, it is one of my favorites so far!  The zipper is a pretty teal and it is across the top, a feature that I really like.  The last several bags the past few moths have been great!

Here’s what I got in my glam bag this month…

Ipsy Glam Bag April 2016 |


tarte cosmetics LipSurgence™ lip crème in wonder Weight: .05 oz
This is a great little sample.  I really enjoy these lipsurgence lip cremes.  The color is beautiful, I have already worn this several times! It has a nice peperminty scent with a slight tingly feel.  I love getting samples like this in my glam bag.

tarte cosmetics LipSurgence™ lip crème in wonder

Eco-chic, cruelty-free products full of good-for-you ingredients.

The super creamy formula is infused with their famous maracuja oil to leave lips feeling oh-so soft. And we’re beyond obsessed with the soft poppy pink shade.
Perfect your pout! Swipe once for a sheer wash of color, or build for more intensity.P.S. It also doubles as a cheek color! Apply to the apples of cheeks and blend for a radiant flush of color.”

REN Skincare Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream Weight: 1 ozEvercalm Global Protection Day Cream Weight: 1 oz |
I feel like for what it is 1 oz is a decent sized sample.  It has a nice fresh scent and I really like the way this cream makes my skin feel.  My foundation applies over it well.  Supposedly it protects against free radicals and environmental aggression while combating the signs of premature aging.  Trains skin to be less sensitive.  That is a lot of claims for one product, but hey I am all for protection against environmental aggression, lol!

“WHY THIS PRODUCT IS FAB: They had us at anti-aging. Plus, the super lush formula absorbs instantly leaving your skin soft, silky and residue-free.

Wear alone or blend with foundation for more hydrating coverage.”

Crown Brush C427 Duo Fiber Blush Brush |

Crown Brush C427 Duo Fiber Blush Brush
I both love and hate getting brushes in my ipsy glam bags.  I have gotten some great brushes that I use daily and I have gotten some others that are just ok.  This one is nice and soft.  It gets the job done

“WHY WE ❤ THIS BRAND: Professional, champagne-quality brushes on a beer budget.

WHY THIS PRODUCT IS FAB: It multitasks as much as you do! Use with your fave foundation, blush, or highlight.

Get glowing in just 2 steps!

  • Using one side of the brush, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks.
  • Flip the brush and use the other side to dust highlighter above your blush on cheekbones.”

pur~lisse Beauty Blue Lotus + White Tea Sheet Mask & Blue Lotus + Seaweed Sheet Mask Weight: .74 oz

pur~lisse Beauty Blue Lotus + White Tea Sheet Mask & Blue Lotus + Seaweed Sheet Mask Weight: .74 ozI was happy that I received two of these masks, just one would have been a bit of a rip off.  Overall I am not a huge fan of sheet masks.  They tend to be a bit cumbersome and annoying and I find that they are usually sticky.  Although, despite that opinion, I did enjoy using the Blue Lotus + White Tea Sheet Mask mask, it smells delightful and my skin felt smooth afterwards.  I will probably use the  Blue Lotus + Seaweed Sheet Mask some time soon.

“WHY THIS PRODUCT IS FAB: Think of these sheet masks as your skincare storm troopers! Each individually wrapped sheet traps a powerful solution of Asian botanicals, seaweed, white tea and antioxidant rich Blue Lotus in your skin. The result? A plumper, more radiant complexion.

Master the art of the sheet mask! After removing the mask, don’t wash your face. Gently rub the extra serum into your skin and décollatage using upward circular motions — this helps to keep skin firmer!

ipsters who receive this product in their Glam Bag will receive two masks: Blue Lotus + White Tea Sheet Mask & Blue Lotus + Seaweed Sheet Mask.”

Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Neapolitan Palette Weight: .1 oz

Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Neapolitan Palette Weight: .1 oz | lookingjoligood.wordpress.comI have received several Jelly Pong Pong items from ipsy over the last year.  Some were hits and some were misses.  At first I wasn’t overly impressed with this when I first saw it, but once I swatched it I realized that the color pay off is pretty good and the shine on the golden shade is beautiful! I have worn this a few times since I received it.  Overall the color is beautiful, but the lasting power is not that great.  Who wants to have to touch up their eyeshadow through out the day, not me!

“WHY WE ❤ THIS BRAND: It’s like your quirky, fashion-forward BFF in makeup form! P.S. All products are paraben-free, hypoallergenic, and won’t clog your pores.

WHY THIS PRODUCT IS FAB: 3 coordinated shadows to shade, line and define! This petite palette takes the guesswork out of choosing which shades go together.

Sweep the lightest shade across entire lid up to brow bone. Apply the middle shade into crease and blend. Line upper lashline with the darkest shade to create definition.”

The gold really makes the vein in my hand pop! Lol! Spoken like a true IV nurse 😉

  1. Wow, this bag is amazing! I would honestly use every single one of those items! That Crown brush looks a LOT like a MAC one I own, it’s fantastic for pigmented blushes. 🙂
