Ipsy Review – April 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly Ipsy review! IMG_9875Pretty in pink! IMG_9881I really like the makeup back this month!  It’s so colorful and fun! IMG_9883The theme for April is “Beautifully Bohemian.” IMG_9886Bag Contents:

  • theBalm Cosmetics – NUDE Dude Eyeshadow Single
  • Mullein & Sparrow – Mini Lip & Cheek Tint

I don’t like beauty products that require you to stick your fingers in a tub.  I know that’s kind of weird, but I don’t like digging my nails into products.

Also, products are usually difficult to get out of the tubs. This primer is no different.  I’m having a hard time getting enough product out of the tub to be able to apply it.  What I have managed to get out of the tub is very thick and hard to blend.IMG_9895theBalm Cosmetics – NUDE Dude Eyeshadow Single – Fit

I love the packaging of this eyeshadow!  It’s so unique and cute!

This eyeshadow has great pigmentation, and the bronze color is a good neutral! IMG_9902Mullein & Sparrow – Mini Lip & Cheek Tint

Another product in a tub. 🙁

This tint smells oddly of chocolate and fruit.  An interesting combination for a beauty product.

The tint is very sheer but much easier to get out of the tub than the eye primer above. IMG_9912Gallany Cosmetics – Lipstick – Petal

This lipstick has a very intense “makeup-y” smell. IMG_9908Petal is a great color for me!  It’s a very pretty, rosy pink. IMG_9905JulieG – Nail Color – Damsel

This nail polish is the perfect pink for summertime.

Since I subscribe to Julep, I told Ipsy (on my beauty quiz) that I didn’t want to receive nail polish from them.  So many people have had problems with the responses to their beauty quizzes that I figured I’d get nail polish all the time.  I’m pretty surprised that I was able to go almost a year without receiving any!

April was an okay month for Ipsy.  I like the bag and the eyeshadow.  The lipstick is okay, but because of the smell, I don’t think I’ll end up using it.

I’ve been pretty disappointed with Ipsy in the last few months, so I’ve decided to cancel my subscription.

I’ll continue to read other bloggers’ reviews, and if Ipsy improves, I will most likely subscribe again!

What do you think of the April bag?  Or Ipsy in general?
