April 2017 Ipsy Unboxing and Product Reviews {Monthly Subscription}

My favorite time of the month, April 2017 Ipsy Unboxing! For those of you who have never heard of Ipsy, it is a monthly subscription. It costs $10 per month and in return you receive a makeup bag with 4-5 samples. I love it and it is almost always worth the $10! When you sign up they have you take a little quiz to give you products that you will like. Then each month you can review everything you’ve received so they can adjust what they send you. I highly recommend this monthly subscription!

April 2017 Ipsy Unboxing

This month’s bag is quite different from past bags, but I really like it. It’s probably just the film obsessed part of me that likes it so much. My mom gave her bag away as soon as she received it, haha. I’m not sure if I will use it as a bag or just decoration, but part of me really likes it.

OFRA Cosmetics Rendezvous Blush

Blush is one of my favorite products to use so I always get a little excited when I receive a new one. This blush is a very natural tone and has a slight brown tone (the picture does not show true color). I normally go for more pink and red tones for blush, but I am excited to try something new. I’ve also never used this brand which is always very exciting. However, it is a very small size and comes without a compact, which is kind of annoying.

WHEN I TRIED IT

Like I said this is a very natural looking blush, but I really like it. This will be perfect for my minimal makeup days. It blends out very smoothly and lasts all day long.

MintPear Vitamin C Serum

This product is very interesting to me and I’m not sure how to feel about it. It is a Vitamin C Serum that is supposed to “lighten, tighten, and brighten” your skin. The bottle is a very small size (like everything else in this month’s bag) but I should be able to get a decent amount of uses out of it. It doesn’t have a very strong smell, but the scent that it does have is not very good.

WHEN I TRIED IT

I used this every night for a week and was SO impressed with the results. Even the first morning I noticed a difference in the color of my face! I deal with redness in my face and this lighten the red color so much. I will definitely be repurchasing this product and continuing to use it to see if it will continue to improve my skin.

Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Glow Shimmer Shadow & Highlighter

A BEAUTIFUL shadow AND highlighter from Elizabeth Mott. I am very excited for this product! It is also a small size, but as a shadow/highlighter it will last a long time. It is a gorgeous color, but it is a little more natural looking than most of my highlighters. However it will be GORGEOUS on the inner corner of my eyes! Overall I am happy and very excited about this product.

WHEN I TRIED IT

This product is SO GORGEOUS and lasts all day long! I absolutely love it and I hope it lasts me a long time! Elizabeth Mott never fails me.

EM Cosmetics Illustrative Eyeliner Brush Tip

I LOVE receiving new eyeliners because I have yet to find the “perfect” one. Trying different types of formula and applicators is always good because it helps me know what I like and don’t like. This liner has a very nice pigment and goes on easily. I am excited to give it a try to see how long it lasts on my oily eyelids!

WHEN I TRIED IT

It isn’t my favorite applicator for liquid eyeliner but the product is so nice. It lasts all day even on my oily eyelids! I’m going to play around with it a little more and hopefully I will start to like the brush tip more.

Josie Maran Cosmetics Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter

I always enjoy trying new skin care products so I was pretty excited about this product. It is a very small size, once again, but I should be able to get a few uses from it.

WHEN I TRIED IT

After using this for a few days, I was neither impressed nor disappointed. It’s a decent face butter, but it doesn’t do anything extra special for me. If I had a bigger size and was able to use it for longer, maybe I would like it better.

April 2017 Ipsy Unboxing Overall Review:

I wasn’t very impressed with my April Ipsy. All of the products are something new to me (which is awesome), but they are also all very small sizes. The bag is different, but I like it. Also most of the brands are new to me so that is great as well. I have nothing to really complain about, except the sizes of the products, but I also don’t have anything I am super excited about. It wasn’t a terrible bag, but it wasn’t great either.

Rating: 2/5
