Ipsy April 2017

I checked my mailbox today and saw this hot pink mailer peeking out, which instantly put me in a good mood! Getting my beauty subscriptions is always my favorite part of the month. Ipsy had released a few spoilers but I tried so hard to not ruin the surprise for myself. I have no idea what I am getting this month but I know that I am excited!

Let’s get to the products:


Hits:

OFRA Cosmetics Blush in “Rendezvous” 

This is by far my favorite item that I received in the bag. I have never tried anything by the brand Ofra but I have heard SO many good things! This blush pan is big and already happy at home in my Z-Palette. It is a beautiful rosy rust shade which looks dark but blends in perfectly to create a beautiful everyday flush. I was looking for a new go-to blush because all the ones in my collection have been boring me. I am hoping this Ofra blush does the trick for me!

Defy & Inspire Nail Lacquer in “Paradise Island”

I have not received a nail polish from Ipsy in so long, so it was due time. This color is a beautiful powder blue which is definitely out of my comfort zone. However I am happy to have received this shade because it is a beautiful color for spring and summer, especially against tan skin. It seems opaque and is formulated without all the bad stuff usually found in nail polish (like formaldehyde, gross). It states that it is wear resistant so hopefully it lasts well on my nails.

ColourPop Cosmetics Crème Gel Pencil in “Mr. Bing”

I have one of these ColourPop eyeliners in my collection already and I LOVE IT. These pencils are automatic which is a lazy girl’s dream because who wants to spend time sharpening eye liners?! The name Mr Bing is a “Friends” reference so I knew I was going to love it no matter what. It is a deep brown shade which is great for days you want something less dramatic than black. It is applies smoothly so you will not be tugging on the gentle skin of your eye. I am glad they sent a different shade than black to keep it interesting. I cannot wait to create an eye look using this.

Misses:

PEEK Beauty Naturally Long Wearing Eye Shadow in “250k8”

This is a miss because individual eye shadows tend to get lost in my collection. For me palettes are so much easier to use and create a look with. The tin packaging of this shadow is cumbersome and difficult to open which makes me want to not even bother. The shadow is a shimmery mix of copper and brown which is beautiful, but I have this shade SO many times over in my collection already. I will say that it seems to be long-lasting, the swatches on my hand were difficult to get off. I know that I will use this, just probably not a whole lot.

SKIN&CO Roma Truffle Therapy Face Toner

I personally do not use a toner, so that is why this is a miss for me. I am aware that I probably should be using one, but it just seems like a pointless extra step. I will try this because I would love to be proven wrong and for it to do amazing things for my skin. This one in particular is made with some pretty luxe ingredients like truffle, rose and rosemary extracts, that part I like.

Overall this month was just so-so for me, not the worst but I know Ipsy can do better. The bag itself is pretty dang cute though and I will for sure be using it in my purse. Definitely a creative design and nothing like any of the bags we have already received. What products did you get this month? Let me know down in the comments!
