April 2015 ipsy Glam Bag Review & Swatches

The theme for the April 2015 ipsy Glam Bag is Flower Power. I’ve said it before but I think the bag this month really is my all time favorite bag. And I’m not talking about the contents, I mean the actual bag!

This month the bag is straw with black, blue, pink, tan and white fabric woven through. Perfect for keeping in a beach bag or pool bag, or even to use as a small clutch on the boardwalk!

What’s inside?

From LATHER, Ultra Light Face Lotion. I love the LATHER Lip Balms and this is right on par with that fabulousness. A lovely lotion for day time and it smells good too!

From theBalm Cosmetics, NUDE Dude Eyeshadow Single. The shade I got is in Flirty and it’s a shimmering golden violet. Beyond all things gorgeous. I’ve always been a huge fan of products from theBalm and this shadow is right on par with what I’ve come to expect from the brand. Pigmented and easy to apply an blend. One of my fave items in this bag!

From Mullein & Sparrow, Mini Lip & Cheek Tint. There isn’t much of a tint to this one and I found it to be okay on the lips and pretty worthless on my cheeks. It smells okay but overall this one isn’t anything to write home about.

From MicaBeauty, Eye Primer. This was really awful, I couldn’t even use it. The formula was incredibly dry and difficult to apply and blend.

From Hikari Cosmetics, Blush in Tango. A beautiful and vibrant peachy pink shade. Super pigmented and soft. It’s also a generous, full-size making it one of my fave items in this month’s bag!

I was only half-impressed with this months bag. My fave products were the eyeshadow I got from theBalm and the blush from Hikari. I was definitely happy to add another LATHER product to my arsenal also, but the other two items are basically throw-aways. The $10 was still worth it, the blush definitely got us there.

Ipsy has profile pages, so here is mine. There is also a pretty decent referral program in place. You refer friends and redeem points to get a sweet little bonus in your next bag (use the points to choose your own!). I’ve gotten some really fab full sized products but definitely read the description because some of them are a lot of points for just a sample size. Previous bonuses have been from NYX, Tarte, Revlon and more! Note: These points DO expire. I didn’t know that until recently when I was logged in and noticed my point total… I left for dinner and came back and it was 300 points less. I wish I’d have known that ahead of time so I could have spent them, but hopefully this message will help you out so you don’t lose your points!
