APRIL IPSY


My April ipsy showed up today! So here is the post I promised after getting my Julep Maven box.

So today my April ipsy bag came… I knew what was going to be in it ahead of time because they give you a sneak peak. Before I go into my personal opinion/thoughts on the bag, heres a photo of everything together.

Starting with the Jor’el Parker Femina perfume. It smells nice, it isn’t by any means a bad smell… but it does have a hint of “old lady” to it… which is a little off-putting… but I could totally (and probably will) wear it to the next fancy outing we have.

Next up, Hey Honey. I am MOST excited about this. I am really faithful to my MaryKay lotion but I love products made with honey/beeswax. (Hello Burts Bees!) So I’m really excited to see how this works for my skin!

Next up is Hikari blush. I do not, have not and probably will not ever use blush. If you’ve ever seen any photos of me, I have naturally rosy cheeks… always have. I was going to trade it with someone online — but the box came with this nasty residue on it so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do that.

Next is the Nude Dude eyeshadow – Fit. I have so many brown eye shadows, I know I typically were natural looking make-up… but the reason I signed up for ipsy was to step outside my comfort zone… but I won’t complain over a new shadow 😀

Finally is the lip gloss. I’m not sure how I feel about this particular color, but I’m curious to try it and see how it works. Mitchell said he liked it, but we’ll see how it looks on me, hopefully I’ll remember and I can post a photo whenever that happens. 😀

  1. Teehee I didn’t realize how similar we are. I was getting ipsy and julep up until about a month ago when I had to cancel my subscriptions. But I am super loyal to Mary Kay!!

    • I find it amusing because we talked about it this past summer when I came – guess that just shows how busy you are! Too much going on! I hope things settle down for you once you move here!

  2. Hey! I got the exact same products this month! Im a little suprised because i thought each month the bag was specific to the consumer. Did i misunderstand this? Either way, my favorite product this month was the actual bag its self!

    • They only have a handful of items each month, and there are only so many combinations of items they can put together so though yes it’s specific to your answers from the quiz, it’s not customized solely to each individual person. I am a little disappointed this month – and I hope that next month’s has better items. I was surprised that they gave me 2 non make-up items, as I was pretty clear in my quiz that fragrances was not really something I was interested in. Oh well. If I have 2 more “off” months (IE products I’m not really going to use) then I’ll probably just cancel my subscriptions.
