April 2015 Ipsy Bag

- KCO Colors by Beauty Brands - Cream Lipstick
- Hikari Cosmetics - Blush
- Lather - Ultra Light Face Lotion
- theBalm Cosmetics - Nude Dude Eyeshadow Single
- Jor'el Parker - Femina (perfume)

I have always wanted to give theBalm cosmetics products a try as many people have such a strong love and speak nothing but good things for this - especially that Mary Loumanizer hilighter. Of the range, the thing I wanted to try most, was their shadows - but I never got around to it. The beauty gods have spoken, and I was lucky enough to have a single shadow included in this month's Ipsy Bag. The shadow is really pigmented, and buttery smooth. This makes me want to buy the actual Nude Dude Palette, but I must hold off. I have way too much shadows at this moment, however - this is excellent. 

The perfume, wasn't for me, there are too many floral notes - I prefer lighter scents, and fruitier ones. 

I've decided to pass on the perfume and the KCO Lipstick and keep the lotion for the gym or for travels.

The Hikari blush is really pigmented as well. I am not used to this brand, so I really like how the Ipsy Bag introduces me to a bunch of brands that I would normally not have exposure to. 

What did you guys get in your bags? If you aren't currently subscribed, would you consider doing so?

Until next time, XO - M.


  1. I need to get on trying TheBalm stuff too. The bag is really cute this month! I saw a preview from May and it looked promising (Glam Glow, IT Cosmetics, UD lip liner). Hope you get some of those goodies!

  2. I loved this month's ipsy bag!! My lotion was exploded out the end though, so they're sending me a new one. I love their customer service!
