ipsy April - Beauty Rocks!

What a fabulous ipsy bag I got this month! This month’s theme was “Beauty Rocks!” Let’s take a look at what I received:

Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil - This is a great velvet black shade, and come on, it’s Urban Decay! I love the brand but oddly enough I don’t like how Zero eyeliner looks on me. It pulls blue-gray, so I am happy to have a true black UD pencil now.

Benefit Lollitint - This is the newest addition to Benefit’s lip and cheek tint family. The candy orchid shade is a perfect example of how to wear Pantone’s color of the year, Radiant Orchid, with ease! I love purples, and this is a flattering shade for my neutral-cool skin tone.

Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm in Acid Pink - This is my first Cailyn product, though the brand seems to be quite popular in beauty subscription boxes. I am shocked at the incredible pigmentation of this tinted lip balm. I would consider it more of a stain, but without any dry feeling. This lasts really well on my lips, and on my hand when I swatched it!

City Color White Gold Mousse Eyeshadow - This is actually my favorite item in the bag! I was initially disappointed that I didn’t receive the Elizabeth Mott champagne eyeshadow that some friends had in their bag. Until I swatched this shadow….it’s just gorgeous. My pictures do not do it justice! It’s got a smooth mousse texture and so much sheen! I’m looking forward to trying more City Color products!

Kiss Looks So Natural Flirty lashes - I don’t wear lashes, so these will be going to a friend that will use them. They look pretty, and I do like the tapered end for a more natural look!


I’m going to show my age here a little bit…but I saw an ipsy bag opening on You Tube and I was totally irritated that the vlogger didn’t know what was on the front of the bag. (Yeah, I’m cranky today…deal.)
It’s a record. And not the turntables you will see if you go clubbing. It’s an old school record player. For vinyl albums! Love it - so cute!

    Hahaha I would be bothered by that vlogger too. I’m not even old enough to have used a record player but at least I know what they are.

    That’s the stuff I don’t understand. How can you NOT know what a record player is? I know what a lot of things are that came and went before I was born. Pick up a book once in awhile! (waves cane crankily at the young whipper snappers).

  • Noelle

    So jealous you got Lollitint!

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    So funny, Amber! You got a completely different bag than I did. Amazing how different ipsy can be. I liked my bag too. I got the Eliz Mott shadow and it’s very nice, but I prefer cream shadows so I would’ve loved that mousse. You lucky, you got the Lollitint!

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    I loved my bag, but I wanted that Lollitint!

    You received some great products. The Kiss lashes I didn’t like so much. I still have a pair I didn’t use.

    Well, know I feel old when there are kids out there that have no idea what a record is. :/

    really? REALLY? They didn’t know what a record player was? I can’t even. Glad I don’t know who that was, because I’d have to stop watching them, no matter what! lol. You got a much different bag than mine. Even though I loved mine, I love yours, too! That mousse is an amazing color! and I love that lollitint color too. Lucky girl!

  • Anastasia

    Whoa, I feel so old now :D It’s kinda hard to believe that record players are so ancient now that some of the younger kids don’t even know what they are anymore.

    I loved my bag but wish I would have gotten the Lollitint instead of Big Sexy Root Lift

    Yours is the most different bag I’ve seen in reviews! I’d be stoked for the lolli tint!

  • FabZilla_Kath

    I really wanted the lollitint… I swear - I really don’t get any items I’m excited about lately. I am considering cancelling my subscription.

    They didn’t know what a turntable was? Oh, girl, oh, no. Turntables are making a comeback! I saw a bunch and some vinyls at Urban Outfitters recently.
