April Ipsy Glambag Reveal and ColourPop Order

Hey beauties!

As I mentioned in my last post, I had some really fun and exciting packages waiting for me when I came home from school to work this weekend! I was finally able to open all of my packages, and I can finally show you all what I received! Woohoo!

My two packages!

First let me reveal to you my April Ipsy glambag. I am LOVING it!! I knew I was going to fall in love with all of the products in my bag this month, and I am so happy I was right! Here is my April bag! I received two full-sized products: the Luxie Beauty Tapered Highlighter Brush, and the Probelle Nail Laquer.

THE DREAMERS APRIL IPSY BAG

1. Tarte cosmetics Lip Surgence Lip Creme in “Wonder”
2. Luxie Beauty Dream Catcher 
Tapered 522 Highlight Brush
3. Probelle Nail Lacquer in “In or Out”
4. Jelly Pong Pong “Neopolitan” Eyeshadow Trio
5. MoroccanOil Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment

The Luxie Beauty Brush is stunning! This brush is only available in the Luxie Beauty Dreamcatcher brush set which is worth about $120.00! On it’s own it would probably retail for about $24.00.

The Probelle Nail Laquer is full-sized, and I am so happy to have a new purple polish to try out! As you all know, I’ve been digging nail polish lately, so this is perfect. This polish retails for about $6.00.

As for the Tarte Cosmetics Lip Creme, a full sized version of this lip color retails for $24.00, so I’d say this sample is probably worth around $10.00-$12.00! I haven’t swatched or tried this on yet, but it looks really vibrant for spring!

The Jelly Pong Pong Eyeshadow Trio I actually used today, and the colors are DELICIOUS! Super creamy and pigmented, these colors blended really well together, and I’m impressed with this product. I can’t tell if this is a full or sample size, but on the Jelly Pong Pong website this trio retails for $17.95.

Neopolitan Trio

The MoroccanOil Hair Treatment smells absolutely fantastic, and I am super excited to use this! It is probably super moisturizing for dry hair, which is just what I need! I think the sample bottle is worth around $6.00 or $7.00!

In total, this bag is worth about = $66.95

I scored big this month with Ipsy! I am excited to review this bag on my Ipsy profile in hopes that May’s bag will be just as awesome!

Did you receive any of these products this month? How did you like them?!

Next up is my ColourPop order! I am so happy with all of the products I bought! They are all rich, creamy, pigmented, and beautiful! ColourPop never disappoints me, and this was a great purchase. I bought two SuperShock eyeshadows, one Lippie Stix, and one Sculpting Stix.

Alchemy (left) & Weenie (right)

First, let me talk about these eyeshadows! Alchemy is a SuperShock eyeshadow in a glitter sheer finish from the Jaime King CP collaboration. It is super sparkly and glittery, and the glitter in this eyeshadow is multi-colored! I put this on my brow bone, and over my eyeshadow look today, and it put my eyeshadow look over the top! I am SO happy I purchased this one.

Weenie is from the Kathleen Lights “Where the Night Is” CP collaboration, and this color is a pink rose gold in a pearlized finish. I put this in my crease for my eyeshadow look today, and it looked great! These two eyeshadows paired really well with the Jelly Pong Pong eyeshadow trio I received in my Ipsy bag and used today too!

Lumiere (top) & Releve (bottom)

Lumière is a Lippie Stix and part of the Kathleen Lights collection at CP. I’ve been drooling over this color since I discovered who Kathleen Lights was. This color is a pinky almost raspberry shade, and it’s in a matte finish. I love it so much! I wore it today to work, and was complimented on it by multiple customers!

Relevé is a Sculpting Stix and part of the Jaime King CP collaboration. This is a highlighting stick in a matte finish. It is a true highlight because it doesn’t have any shimmer or sheen in it. It goes on creamy, blends easily, and dries quick. I used this product today as well, and I’ve been dying for a highlighter that wasn’t shimmery! This one worked for me, and I will definitely be playing with this one more.

Here are all of my ColourPop items swatched for you!

In all, I’m so so so happy with my purchases! Ipsy has continued to wow me, and ColourPop has delivered quality products once more! I definitely recommend all of these products if you are looking to try something new!

I hope you all enjoyed this post! Have a beautiful night y’all!

IPSY EARLY ACCESS ALERT – THE DREAMERS

Hello beautiful people!

Late last night, I was up making a PowerPoint for my choreography class, and right before I was about to sleep, I saw a tweet that said Ipsy Early Access was ready!

Naturally, I logged onto Ipsy and saw my BEAUTIFUL April bag!! Guys I am sooo excited about this one!! I am going to be receiving a lot of fun stuff!

The Dreamers

This month’s bag has a title, and it’s called, “The Dreamers“. I love the name and the look of the makeup bag – it reminds me of summer camping for some reason! It also has a bit of a hippie vibe to it which I totally dig. Here is what I will be receiving this month!

1. Tarte cosmetics Lip Surgence Lip Creme in “Wonder”
2. Luxie Beauty Dream Catcher 
Tapered 522 Highlight Brush
3. Probelle Nail Lacquer in “In or Out”
4. Jelly Pong Pong “Neopolitan” Eyeshadow Trio
5. MoroccanOil Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment

Holy beautiful spring time beauty, this bag looks like it’s going to be so much fun! I just watched a CoffeeBreakWithDani YouTube video where one of her February favorites was an angled Luxie beauty brush, and I thought to myself the other day, I would have loved to try one! I also have been dying for a new brush specifically for highlighting because I’ve been practicing, and I don’t like mixing my highlighter with my foundation, blush, or bronzer brushes (ie: using my foundation brush also as my highlight brush, etc.). Plus, the name of the brush fits perfectly with the theme of the bag. *Swoon* I’ve fallen in love with Ipsy and it’s only my second month of subscription with them!

Further, I am so happy I am receiving the Tarte lip color! This color looks so perfect for spring time! I’ve never tried Tarte products, and I am happy I am able to sample it! Tarte is a cruelty-free brand, and I love that cruelty-free cosmetic companies are becoming more mainstream!

The Jelly Pong Pong eye shadow trio is a full-size product too, and on the Jelly Pong Pong website, the color swatches of this product look so gorgeous!! ❤ I’ve never heard of this brand before, but apparently its 100% cruelty-free, and they have some really adorable packaging on their products! I’m definitely psyched to try this one out 🙂

The nail color is purple (my favorite color!), and I am always down for a good purple polish! I’ve never tried Probelle, but I’ve recently been getting back into nail polish and painting my own nails again, so this is perfect!

Finally, the Moroccan Oil hair treatment seems like it is going to be really awesome for my curly hair. My hair tends to be on the drier side, and I’m always looking out for new products to help tame frizz and keep my curls bouncy (especially in the humid summer months). Last month I received the Marc Anthony anti-frizz hair cream, and I really enjoyed it, so I’m expecting to like this hair treatment as well!

Let me know what you all are getting in your Ipsy bags this month! Are you as excited as I am?!

Have a wonderful day everyone!
