April 2013 Ipsy Bag | Pretty in Pink

So, it’s almost the end of May and look what I have! April’s Ipsy Bag! I just received May’s Glam Bag which, as some of you have seen, is totally awesome. April’s theme is a fun one though and I do love all things pink!

Sation Nail Lacquer | Love at First ByteDSC_0098

Sation Nail Lacquer is a contemporary beauty company, infusing a creative direction in nail care through a blend of lifestyle aesthetics.

Thoughts: In keeping with the “pretty in pink” theme, this is a dusty rose colour from a 2009 collection that I normally would not buy because it’s far too neutral. I still haven’t decided if it’s something I would like to keep…I guess I’m getting mighty selective with my polishes now!

Full size: 15mL/$5.00 USD

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Thoughts: I definitely in need of some volume in my hair and this sounds like an interesting and magical product. It starts out dry and then liquifies?! I love “sciencey” beauty products!

Be a Bombshell Blush | Beach Please  DSC_0100

Thoughts: Eeek! I was so psyched to see this! I do not have a blush in this colour so I am very excited to have something different for my collection! I’m typically very safe with my colour choices for blush so I am delighted to try something new!

Full size: 5g/$16.00 USD

I received: *FULL SIZE*

I received: 2g/$11.96 (I almost wanted to say we received the full size, but then I saw the difference in amount on the website vs. what I have.

Total Value of April Ipsy Bag: $34.29

With the exception of the nail polish colour, I do think this bag was a good one and the theme was quite cute. The make up bag is kind of blah, but luckily the contents are not!

Happy Victoria Day long weekend to my Canadian readers!

    1. It's totally a scary blush colour, isn't it? It seems okay once I blend it out so I'm excited to use it.

    I feel like you should be a spokeswoman for these subscription bags, you're so persuasive!

    1. This shade just doesn't look that great on me. My skin tone is a touch to dark. It would be nice on someone more fair.
