It’s April about to be May pretty soon and it’s also Monday, so today I am here with an unboxing of the beauty subscription Ipsy. For the month of April Ipsy has created a retro bag design where Ipsy is taking subscribers way back, back time when Tie-dye was all anything anyone could rave about, and Ipsy has apparently revived the fun by releasing a tie-dyed inspired makeup bag filled with even more stylish beauty brands, so lets take a peek inside and see what the Ipsy April 2016 Bag has to reveal.
Product 1 Luxie 522 Tapered Highlighter Brush
Full size $24.00
If you all have not tried the Luxie brand of brushes I highly recommend them. These brushes are super soft, and what I like about this particular brand is that they do shed, they hold their shape very well and are worth in my opinion every bit of the money. I received in my Ipsy April 2016 Bag the beautiful Luxie 522 Tapered Highlighter Brush in a sky baby blue color with a rose gold color ferrule. This color is not yet available on Luxie’s website, but hopefully soon. The Luxie brand of brushes are vegan and cruelty free, and are made with antibacterial synthetic bristles.Product 2 Starlooks Cream Eye Shadow in Rose Gold
Full size $Unknown
Starlooks Cream Eye Shadow in Rose Gold is just that a cream shadow that features a doe-foot applicator wand. The color is more like a copper molten gold, and is somewhat buildable where you can have a simple wash of shimmer, or for a more daring metallic look intensify the color by adding an extra swipe or two. Product 3 Tarte LipSurgence Lip Cream in the color Wonder*
Full size $24.00 for 1 or $35.00 for a set of 4
Tarte is one of favorite makeup lines and this next item is the main reason why, it’s their LipSurgence Lip Creme in the color Wonder. What I like about the LipSurgence lipstick crayons is that they all have a refreshing hint of mint once applied, and they are extremely hydrating making lip balm a thing of the past when wearing these lipsticks. The color Wonder is a bright red with a medium coral undertone. I thought that the size of the sample is perfect to be able to play around with the color. For me I like the color on its own, however I do like an intense bold color sometimes so I will probably be adding a darker red lipliner underneath.Product 4 Pur~lisse Blue Lotus + White Tea Treatment Sheet Mask
Full size $ 36.00 for 6 or $8.00 for 1
I love sheet masks in general because they are whole lot easier when you just want to have a quick facial and still be able to reap the benefits of the traditional one facial mask, and that brings me to the next item featured in my Ipsy April 2016 Bag the item that I received is the Pur~lisse Blue Lotus + White Tea Sheet Mask, and Ipsy was all too kind to include two mask in my April bag. The Blue Lotus and White Tea sheet mask is a natural fiber mask that of course contains White Tea and Blue Lotus and is also formulated with Asian botanicals. This mask works to improve skin by helping with brightening, firming and also improves the texture of skin as stated by the brand. The Pur~lisse Blue Lotus and White Tea Treatment Sheet mask also contains Anise as well as White Mulberry.Product 5 Ren Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream*
Full size $45.00
And lastly the product that is going to complete my Ipsy April 2016 Bag reveal is a day cream by the brand Ren Skincare, and it’s their Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream. Evercalm day cream is formulated to help sensitive skin with calming, soothing, hydrating and protecting skin from environmental factors such as pollution and smog. This day cream takes its job a step further and leaves ones skin with a radiant glow.
So there we have it the Ipsy April 2016 Bag. I have to say I am definitely loving this bag from the products to the bag itself was great I thought it was the perfect bag to start off subscription unboxings with. My favorite item I would have to say hands down is the Luxie 522 Tapered Highlighter brush it’s not only pretty, but effective at getting the job done, and that’s a wrap as usual all product information will be featured below.
