April 25, 2016

I got my Ipsy Bag April 2016 and wanted to share it with you.

Ipsy Bag April 2016 www.fabulousindeed.com

The theme this month is “Dreamers”.  The card says:  This month, create looks that celebrate every side of your unique beauty – from natural and understated to high fashion and ultra-glam.

Now let’s get into what they think of as dreamy.  Fingers crossed that it is good!

First up is this tarte cosmetics LipSurgence lip creme in wonder

From Ipsy’s site:  The super creamy formula is infused with their famous maracuja oil to leave lips feeling oh-so soft. And we’re beyond obsessed with the soft poppy pink shade.

STYLIST TIP:
Perfect your pout! Swipe once for a sheer wash of color, or build for more intensity.

P.S. It also doubles as a cheek color! Apply to the apples of cheeks and blend for a radiant flush of color.

Weight: .05 oz – full size is .1 oz – so this is 1/2 the size.  Full size retails at $24 – Value $12

Use code “IPSYAPR” to get 20% off on tarte’s website.

I thought from the swatch that I would like the color – but the day I tried to wear it – I tossed it – way too bright for my liking.

The next thing that I saw was NAIL POLISH!  We all know I love me some nail polish.

The color: In or out.  .5 oz, which is full sized.  Value $6

Go to their site and use code “IPSY30” to save 30%

This color is ok, I am sure I will use it.  Please don’t judge my nails, they are a mess.

The next thing I saw were two face masks.  I love face masks!

From Ipsy’s site:

Think of these sheet masks as your skincare storm troopers! Each individually wrapped sheet traps a powerful solution of Asian botanicals, seaweed, white tea and antioxidant rich Blue Lotus in your skin. The result? A plumper, more radiant complexion.

STYLIST TIP:
Master the art of the sheet mask! After removing the mask, don’t wash your face. Gently rub the extra serum into your skin and décollatage using upward circular motions — this helps to keep skin firmer!

Ipsters who receive this product in their Glam Bag will receive two masks: Blue Lotus + White Tea Sheet Mask & Blue Lotus + Seaweed Sheet Mask.

Weight: .74 oz each  These are both full size and retail at $8 – Value $16

Get 30% with code IPSYLOTUS30 at their website.  I wondered if the masks counted as two products?  You usually get five things, and I am not seeing five things unless you count the mask as two.

From Pur-lisse’s website:

The Blue Lotus+Seaweed:  This natural fiber mask infused with Blue Lotus, Seaweed and restorative Asian botanicals delivers antioxidants and minerals to your skin.  This power blend fights soothes & nourishes while White Mulberry brightens and Anise fruit provides continuous moisture, leaving skin healthy, beautiful and radiant.

Features & Benefits:

When skin is puffy or tired looking, place the mask in the fridge for a few hours for an instant calming effect. This technique is great to close pores too. Steep the mask in hot water to open pores, which in turn will help deliver our healing ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin.

The last thing I found was this pretty eye shadow from Nomad.  The color is dessert sands.

From Ipsy’s site:

This highly pigmented shadow is our fave for its intense color payoff.

STYLIST TIP: Who said neutral eye looks had to be basic? Dampen a small, dense shadow brush, then pat gently against the shadow pan. Press pigment onto eyelid for a bolder, more reflective sheen on your eyelids.

Weight: .05 oz.  This is normally sold in a palette for $47.  The palette has 9 items (not really of equal value) so I will say this is worth $5.22

I do like this, though I haven’t used it yet.

I thought that was it – and went to the throw the bag away, and thought I should double check it – and found this!

This is a duo fiber blush brush by Crown Brush.

From Ipsy’s site:

It multitasks as much as you do! Use with your fave foundation, blush, or highlight.

STYLIST TIP:
Get glowing in just two steps!

  • Using one side of the brush, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks.
  • Flip the brush and use the other side to dust highlighter above your blush on cheekbones.

Weight: .3 oz  Visit Crown’s website and use code 2016CROWNIPSY25 to get 25% off.  I am guessing it is full size and retails just under $24

Total bag value: $63.22 – not too shabby!  I am most excited about the face masks, the eye shadow and the nail polish.
