Ipsy Glambag April 2013

The theme for the April 2013 Ipsy Glam Bag is Pretty In Pink. For the most part the beauty items included are some shade of pink. I received my glam bag from Ipsy on the 12th but I haven’t gotten around to posting about it until now. This bag is rather hit or miss in my opinion this month but it is mainly personal taste in this case, not necessarily a quality issue. Here is what I got in my Ipsy Glam Bag this month…

  • Sation Nail Lacquer for Ipsy – Love At First Byte
  • Mica Beauty Cosmetics Shimmer Powder – Earth
  • Healthy Sexy Hair – Soy Renewal Nourishing Styling Treatment

The glam bag I received is a pearl white and pink cosmetic bag. The inner lining is pink and white striped with the Ipsy…beauty by you tagline. My bag arrived with what seems like pink stains but it’s not very noticeable and this cosmetic bag isn’t really my style so it’s not a huge deal to me.

Can you see the little stained lines? Maybe not, they’re small.

Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Blush

I’ve never tried anything by Be A Bombshell Cosmetics so this brand is completely new to me. Beach Please blush looks like a very pretty pink. It’s bright, vibrant and matte. The packaging feels…like a cheap toy.  I haven’t tried the blush yet and looks can be deceiving so I’ll hold off judgement until I play around with a bit. I do have high hopes for this and I want to love this color!

Sation Nail Lacquer For Ipsy

I’m already a huge fan of Sation Nail Lacquer so of course I am glad they teamed up with Ipsy. My glambag included Love At First Byte, a soft pink…or peach. Peachy pink? I don’t know but I’m torn about this color at the moment. It looks darker in the photo, it’s not dark at all! It seems like a nude, which I’m not really a fan of but I like the soft peachy pink tone it has. I’ll probably swatch it today and then we’ll see!

Mica Beauty Cosmetics Shimmer Powder

Another brand I don’t think I’ve ever tried is Mica Beauty Cosmetics so I’m glad Ipsy included it in a Glam Bag. I received one of their mineral eye shadows, shimmer powder in Earth (72). It appears to be a rose gold shade but on their website it looks like a totally different color, almost with a hint of purple to it. I’m super messy with loose powder so I rarely buy or use mineral products but this looks promising.

Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal

Healthy Sexy Hair? Yes please! Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Nourishing Styling treatment has argan oil in it so this is something I’ll probably get hooked on. I’ve tried other products from this line and really liked them so I’m glad to get this sample in my Glam Bag from Ipsy this month. The size will be perfect for me to take on my trip up north in 2 weeks. Score!
