Ipsy April 2017 Glam Bag

The beginning of April had been foggy and rainy and seems to drag on!  These last few days have been absolutely beautiful!  I hope this weather continues!

April’s theme is “Side Show”

“Step Right UP! Step Right UP!  Nows’s the time to be bold and shatter the mold…Standing out is the new fitting in.  This month’s bag is dedicated to anyone who’s ever felt like an outcast”

I HATE this month’s bag!  The material is a faux leather feeling, bright orange shade with printing on it to look like a circus ticket.  The way that ipsy describes the bag is “This hawt red-orange bag is clutch for rides on the ferris wheel, killing it at the arcade, or you know, just being your uniquely awesome self all month long.”.  This bag looks very juvenile to me… My son wants it, and I am giving it to him.ipsy

Speaking of juvenile…I have to also admit that the kitchy talk and overly trendy way that ipsy describes things drives me nuts!!!  It feels as if they are trying waaaaaaay too hard to be cool and it is totally not working. (ie: dramz, gorge, hawt, probs, low key obsessed…) Anyway…

Here is what I got in my April 2017 ipsy glam bag:

Adessa lip balm ipsyAdesse New York Cupuaçu Butter Lip Balm 3 g

Ipsy describes this as a ginger mint scent. I don’t know if that is what I would call it, but it smells wonderful! This lip balm is perfect!  It’s made with cold pressed Cupuaçu butter.  All of Adesse New York’s formulas (even their nail stuff) are cruelty-free, vegan, and clean!

ipsy colourpopColourPop Cosmetics Crème Gel Pencil in Best O

The formula is super creamy, making application easy without any tugging or pulling.  I have received Colourpop liners in my glam bag before, so I already knew that the formula is super creamy.  I was glad to get something other than a black liner.  Mine is in Best O which is a deepened burgundy brown.

Others who received this sample either got Best O (deepened burgundy), DTLA (deep blackened blue), Mr. Bing (rich warm brown), Show Me (vivid true copper), or Swerve (true onyx black).

This shadow is absolutely gorgeous!  I have gotten a few different samples from Hikari and I have loved all of them.  I think this shadow is one of my favorite things that I have ever recieved from ipsy

In the pan it looks like a coral blush, on the cheeks it is a beautiful gold toned highlight.  Not a blush at all, but that is fine because I have gotten several blush samples from ipsy in a similar coral shade.

Ipstiers could recieve this blush in one of three colors:
‘Peach’ shade is perfect for a flirty, warm-toned flush (v. on trend right now).  The ‘Format’ shade is the perfect rich terracotta shade for a warm, bronzey glow.The ‘Rendezvous’ shade is a classic, cool-toned, soft rose that looks amazing on all skin tones

I am still trying to decide between Glossy box and Boxy charm and haven’t signed up for either of them yet.  Although, I have to admit that I signed up for Birchbox again just for April.  (Stay tuned to find out why and what I got in my box.)

  1. Aw I can see what you mean about the bag – it’s like a toy. It’s thematically well done though. 😛
    You got some great makeup items though – that Hikari eye shadow in Honey Dew is stunning.

  2. “Killing it at the arcade” 😂 I’m thinking about switching to birchbox. I’m waiting to get my box before I decide!
