I had unreasonably high hopes for the April Ipsy bag! Why? Well, April is my birthday month (stay tuned for a special announcement tomorrow!) and I wanted this bag to be amazing.
So, was it?
This month, Ipsy subscribers received 5 products an I am pretty sure everyone got the UD Black Velvet liner. The theme was ‘Beauty Rocks’, which was cute, but the bag could have been done better.
What I got:
St. Tropez Gradual Tan Plus Anti-Aging Multi-Face Action ($11): Unfortunately I probably won’t use this. I wish it was a face/body tanner because I do not have a body tanner right now. I also like my pale-ness.
dr. brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant ($9.75): I like this! Considering the 2oz size retails for $78, I am really happy I can at least try it out!
Rainbow Honey Cosmetics nail polish in Midnight Fountain ($5): Right up my alley—blue glitter polish from a brand I have always wanted to try!
Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-on Eye Pencil in Black Velvet ($17): This is almost full size!! The fact that Velvet is on the packaging and not just in the name makes me wonder if UD is going to release a whole velvet line?! I love this so far. It is creamy and matte.
Mary Kay At Play Jelly Lipgloss in Berry Me ($10): Full size and a perfect color for me!
Total value: $52.75!!
Even though I won’t use the face tanner, the value for me is still over $40 for $10, with some awesome products that I have always wanted to try and that are new (UD Velvet and MK@Play).
