Ipsy | April 2014 “Beauty Rocks”

I should just make this “beauty box” week because I have SO MANY to share with you all! I won’t make excuses for why this is so late so all I will say is that I liked April’s Ipsy Bag! Now, let’s have a closer look at what was inside!

april 2014 ipsy bag

Rainbow Honey | Nail Polish in Midnight Fountain

The Rainbow Honey nail polish in Midnight Fountain is a holographic nail polish with iridescent glitters that swim around in a shimmery blue base. Part of Midnight Garden, a new nail lacquer collection by Rainbow Honey.

Thoughts: I am a HUGE fan of RH and have purchased almost every collection IN FULL since 2012 so this polish was only just the beginning of my downward purchasing spiral as I ended up buying the whole collection anyway!

Full size: 16mL/$10.00

I received: 5mL/$3.13

dr. brandt | microdermabrasion

dr.brandt

The dr. brandt® microdermabrasion gently sweeps away dead skin cells and softens skin texture, which enables better absorption of skincare products and helps diminish the appearance of fine lines, acne marks, and skin discolorations. A great at home alternative to professional clinical treatments. Safe to use for all skin types. For best results use with dr. brandt® skincare products.

Thoughts: I have never used this brand before, but all I know about dr.brandt is that it’s pretty pricey! The “dr” in the brand name makes me want to place my trust in it right away. I’m sure if Scientist Jayne reviewed this, everyone would be running out to buy it.

Full size: 60g/$78.00

I received: 7.5g/$9.75

Mary Kay at Play | Jelly Lip Gloss in Teddy Bare

Turn up the volume with Mary Kay At Play™ color! It’s flirtatiously fun makeup you can remix-n-match to create your own color playlist. The Mary Kay At Play™ Jelly Lip Gloss has a fun jelly texture that offers brilliant, intense shine with a sheer wash of color.

Thoughts: Sticky, but this actually softens up and gives a brilliant shine! Sticky can feel uncomfortable, but it also means that this is a lip gloss that will stay!

Full size: 0.32oz/$10.00

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Demeter | Jasmine Roll On Perfume Oil

An exotic, sweet, warm floral bouquet. Demeter’s Jasmine is the experience of the living flowers picked on a beautiful spring night. Wear alone or layer with your favourite Demeter fragrance. With over 250 fragrances, the Demeter Fragrance library is inspired by everyday objects and experiences.

Thoughts: I haven’t decided whether I like this scent yet. It’s definitely floral, but almost powdery too.

Full size: 0.29oz./$10.00

I received: *FULL SIZE*

I totally forgot to take a picture of the Urban Decay 24/7 Black Velvet Eyeliner so here is a picture of Yoshi to distract you:

A must for smoky-eye fanatics: an ultra-plush version of UD’s creamy, waterproof 24/7 formula. Create perfectly blended-out or rich, precise lines that are blacker-than-black.

Thoughts: I am a big fan of all of the 24/7 liners in all colours, but I don’t really see how this is THAT different than my beloved Zero or Perversion. I do love this size of pencil though because I don’t think there has been an eyeliner than I have “panned” yet. Zero is coming close!

Full size: 0.04oz/$20.00

I received: 0.03oz/$15.00

Total value of April Ipsy Bag: $47.88

Pretty great right? Nail polish, lip gloss and the opportunity to try a new UD liner? Not bad at all!
