April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag Reveal


I re-subscribed to IPSY! πŸ˜€

I’m so happy to be receiving makeup samples again. As you all know, I had to cancel my subscription in January 2016 due to the fact that I just needed to save some money. After careful planning and budgeting, I was able to find some free money for both my husband and I to have spending money each month, and this is how I’m spending some of that money! πŸ˜€

Anyway, I say let’s get right into this bag because it’s my first in over a year! Product reviews for all items in this bag will come later once I’ve gotten to try all the products.

Watch my April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag Reveal:

THEME: Side Show


This month’s theme is Side Show and the bag is red-orange. To be honest, I’m not sure if I’m feeling the bag, but if I end up going to any festivals or to the amusement park, I guess I could use this, lol. What did everyone else think of the bag?!



  • OFRA Cosmetics Rendezvous Blush
  • Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Glow Shimmer Shadow Highlighter
  • defy & Inspire Wear Resistant Nail Lacquer in Paradise Island
  • THEORIE Marula Oil Transforming Hair Serum
  • ColourPop Cosmetics Creme Gel Pencil in DTLA

First Impressions:

I haven’t tried OFRA Cosmetics or ColourPop Cosmetics so I’m mostly excited to try these two products. I have a brow tinted gel from Elizabeth Mott and I really liked the quality so I’m looking forward to trying another product from this brand.

I’ve never heard of THEORIE or defy & Inspire, but I like the nail lacquer shade and I think it’s a beautiful spring shade. I don’t believe I have a shade like it. As far as the hair serum goes, I’m excited to try something new because I’m still working on my haircare routine.

  1. I remember seeing a picture whether it was on insta or twitter of you and the ipsy bag and was so excited that you resigned up!!! That nail polish, I got the same color and I’m SOOOO in love. That tweet you favorited of mine today about the polish was for that one! The color is great the quality is mediocre (of course) the first time around I did 2 coats and it started chipping 1-2 days after and I didn’t feel like redoing my nails altogether for Easter so I just painted over there one more time….they’re a tad thick buttt the polish has been staying on better after 3 total coats. Totally jelly of your ColourPop gel pencil! Can’t wait to see your review on it!!!

    1. Probably twitter πŸ™‚ And I figured it was the same shade πŸ˜‰ I’m hoping to wear it this week, the weather hasn’t been the best but I really wanna get into the spring spirit and I’m hoping this shade does it for me. πŸ™‚
      Ahh I’ll keep that in mind about the polish. Did you use a base coat or just applied on bare nails?
      Yeah I know I’m so excited about the pencil as well. First Colourpop product! πŸ˜€


    1. I’d recommend Ipsy because it’s only $10 a month. HOWEVER, some products are misses for most people, but you’re essentially getting what you paid. Most of the samples I got a long time ago I still have and they’re really good quality (for the most part). It depends on what you’re most interested in I guess, makeup or skincare. Ipsy has more makeup with the occasional haircare or skincare sample. Birchbox seems like it’s more suited for people who prefer skincare with the occasional makeup item. But Birchbox’s reward points have changed so a lot of people don’t like it as much.. Lol.. Do your research just in case. There’s a box out there for everyone! πŸ™‚

      1. This actually helps a lot, thanks for laying it out for me hun!! I prefer skincare and makeup products equally, preferably a tad more skincare but I can go equal parts too. Will look into it further though πŸ™‚

  2. I love the bag, it’s so cute! I love the Colour Pop liners and the blush is so pretty. I unsubscribed from Ipsy a year or so ago, I never got good stuff. Ulta is about to start carrying Ofra which is exciting!

    1. Omg that is exciting!! Been wanting to try OFRA for a while, especially their liquid lipsticks. Can’t wait to take a look at them in store *fingers crossed* (unless it’s online only)
