So if you read my first review about Birchbox you`ll know that I said I would review my first Ipsy Glam Bag for April when it arrived! And for those who didn`t read my Birchbox post, I will give you a little background info. Birchbox and Ipsy are two beauty sample sites where for $10/a month they send you a box full of makeup or other beauty samples and sometimes even full sized products! Its an amazing deal because the samples are very generous sizes and there is almost always going to be atleast one full size product which obviously values for over $10 alone! Below I will post links to both sites if anyone is interested in signing up :)! But any who...
Ipsy April Glam Bag:
-Be a Bombshell: "Beach Please" Blush (Full size)
-Sation: "Of Corset I`ll Call You" Nail Polish (Full size)
-MICA Beauty Cosmetics: "Earth" Shimmer Powder (Full size)
-Healthy Sexy Hair: "Soy Renewal" Nourishing Styling Treatment (Deluxe size)
-Makeup Bag: Very Spring/Summer colored bag with big flowers
So WOW I was really impressed with this Glam Box! Now I haven`t gotten a chance to try anything yet but will update when I do! I can`t believe 3 out of the 4 products are full sized! The MICA shimmer powder is GORGEOUS! It sort of reminds me of Bareminerals "Celestine" powder eyeshadow (possible dupe)! Then the Be a Bombshell Blush is so pretty and really cant wait to give it a try because it definitely will be a great color to use for summer and when I have a tan going on ;) The blush has a sort of MAC look to it, the way the box is made is very similar to MAC & the actual casing of the blush is that matte plastic feel and extremely like MAC containers! The nail polish I will have to wait a little to try because I am still wearing the polish from the Birchbox bag! Lastly, the Healthy Sexy Hair soy renewal styling treatment I will be using tomorrow after I wash my hair, and will apply before blow drying.
Also, Ipsy included an invite to a "Generation Beauty" show where I can "meet, learn, and network with my favorite beauty gurus." Something which sounds so fun but its in LA which I am on the other side of the country in Boston :( But pretty cool because tickets cost $150 but Ipsy is offering subscribers the price of $60! Then there is another phamplet which tells me all the brands of the items included in this months bag and how for this month they have special discounts off each brand on their website! Lastly, there was a little note saying that the makeup bag originally chosen for this months bag didn`t meet their standards so they substituted the bag last minute with a different one & said they would be sending an extra makeup bag with next months Glam Bag! That means an extra makeup bag next month yay!
Overall, I am very impressed with this bag and LOVE everything and am actually really excited to try every one of the items! At this point if I had to chose between Birchbox and Ipsy I would chose Ipsy. But I am going to still give Birchbox a chance because they even had said that this months bag was going to be a little different then normally due to teaming up with Women`s Health Magazine. So I am going to wait it out and see what May brings and also obviously cant wait to see Ipsy`s May Glam Bag!!
Below are the links to both sites if anyone is interested :) Any questions please feel free to comment & will post some swatches tomorrow!
