Just a couple days ago, I finally received my April 2019 Ipsy bag in the mail. To those of you who may not know, Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription box of 5-6 curated beauty products personalized for you. It costs only $10 a month + free shipping! The products are usually just samples, but there are also times when you can receive full-sized ones. If you want to subscribe, you can do so through my link.
APRIL 2019 IPSY BAG
This is the overview of all the products I received.
Ipsy bags ship in hot pink (or is it magenta?) poly mailers like this. I prefer this over Birchbox’s shipping boxes because it’s more compact and easier to recycle.
Now let’s get on to unboxing my April 2019 Ipsy bag!
1. Ipsy April 2019 Spring Lemon Makeup Bag
From superfood-infused formulas to juicy hues, the April 2019 Glam Bag is blooming with fresh beauty picks.
My thoughts: What I love about ipsy are the pretty makeup bags the products come in… and this one is probably my favourite, so far! So perfect for spring. Seems pretty sturdy, too!
BUXOM Cosmetics wants you to feel sexier in your skin, starting with a mascara that gives you the fluttery, fanned-out lashes of your dreams. The volumizing formula creates thick, clump-free lashes and an hourglass-shaped brush grips every lash for volume, length, and lift.
My thoughts: I’ve received a lot of mascara from other subscription boxes and as gifts with purchase from Ulta, so I’m not really that excited about this. 😦
Looking for a new liner to love? This A+ waterproof liner dries ASAP and won’t fade, smudge, or budge, so no worries about having to reapply. With its tapered precision tip, the looks you can create with it are limitless— go thin with your flick, or lay it on thick.
My thoughts: Just like the mascara, I have received loads of black liner from subscription boxes and as gifts with purchase… and I hate this more than mascaras (which I actually use regularly) because I don’t use liners that much + I received a full sized one (this one is just travel size) of their Skinny Liquid Eyeliner from Birchbox.
Laura Sanchez is a Colombian makeup artist that was NYX FACE’s 2016 Beauty Vlogger of the Year and her brand is all about bold colour and self expression. This highly-pigmented metallic, pinky rose gold eyeshadow is ultra creamy and blends easily to set your creative urges free.
My thoughts: HOW PRETTY IS THE PACKAGING!! I love it so much. This is just a sample of one of the eyeshadows in Laura Sanchez’s palette and I’m glad I got this shade because it’s something I would actually use. Hopefully it doesn’t suck!
111SKIN was founded by globally renowned cosmetic surgeon Dr. Yannis Alexandrides, who was searching for a formula to help his patients’ skin heal after surgery. That’s why this luxe serum does it all—it hydrates, helps boost collagen production, and helps minimize the appearance of fine lines.
My thoughts: I’ve never heard of this brand, but its claims are pretty interesting. I could use a serum in my skincare routine right now!
This brand new primer does more than keep your makeup in place—it’s loaded with healthy ingredients, like jojoba and grapeseed extracts, to help keep your skin hydrated for 12 full hours.
My thoughts: This is the only product that was actually familiar to me. I’ve heard good things about this primer, so I’m really happy I’ve got the chance to try it out!
Final verdict: I wasn’t actually planning on getting Ipsy this month. I just forgot to cancel my subscription (I just skipped last month’s subscription and then forgot that it will automatically re-subscribe the next month) so I’m extra annoyed when I saw I’ll be receiving another mascara and black eyeliner again. I love the cute bag and the Tarte base tape, though I won’t be resubscribing anymore. Are you subscribed to Ipsy? What do you think of this month’s products?
