Subscription: IPSY

Month: April 2018

Theme: Social Butterfly 🦋


Hello, Neviewers- happy Tuesday! As mentioned in my last post, I will be posting this month’s IPSY bag and Play! by Sephora bag this week. Let’s get started, shall we? I thought this bag captured this month’s theme perfectly. Butterflies cover a majority of the front of this bag (tbh, I think they went overboard with all the butterflies, but it’s okay because the rose gold details make up for it). Rose gold is my favorite color atm, so I was geeked to see those beautiful details on this bag (the two bottom corners and the zipper is in rose gold) 🌹✨

The picture up above displays the products I got + the makeup bag in the background. The 6 items I received were: Doucce Punk Volumizer Mascara, Biorace Pore Tightening Pearl Clay Mask, Ciaté London Fierce Flicks Eyeliner, Clark’s Botanicals Deep Moisture Mask, Meech N Mia Eyeshadow in Copper, and Beau Gachis Tapered Blending Brush.

The break-down:

👁Doucce Punk Volumizer Mascara– *sample* I always love getting mascara in my beauty subscriptions because you can never have enough! IPSY usually introduces me to new brands, and I actually liked this mascara! Sure, it doesn’t beat my favorite brand when it comes to mascara- Benefit Cosmetics, but I love the deep black color and the volume it adds. Makes my lashes look great!  [Actual price: $24- Full-size]

🧖🏽‍♀️Biorace Pore Tightening Pearl Clay Mask– *sample* Clay masks are my favorite, so I was excited to see this product! I’m all about trying new types of masks as a part of my skincare routine. As you can see above, I attached a picture of what the mask actually looks like. It’s a paste that you apply all over your face, leave on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off. My skin felt awesome after washing it off and appeared more radiant[Actual price: $25- Full-size]

👁Ciaté London Fierce Flicks Eyeliner– *full-size* I’m not totally into felt tip eyeliners because I feel like it always comes out way too thick on me. However, this one was different! The precision is great I’m able to achieve a thin and thick line depending on how much pressure I apply, and how I hold the eyeliner. It has a nice jet black color with easy application and washes off smoothly. [Actual price: $19]

🧖🏽‍♀️Clark’s Botanicals Deep Moisture Mask– *sample* I love this! I’ve been using it as a night cream because of how hydrating and moisturizing it is. I have combination skin (more toward the oily side) and it works great with my skin. I think it’s so neat that you can use this as a mask or moisturizer! [Actual price: $72- Full-size]

👁Meech N Mia Eyeshadow- *full-size* As I mentioned in the last post, I live for gold eyeshadow– my absolute favorite. This is a loose shadow so be careful when opening it (mine was closed super tightly and luckily, it didn’t fly everywhere when I opened it). The pigmentation is SO beautiful. It’s a rich, deep gold color with a stunning sparkle. You can apply this dry as is, or apply it wet with a little bit of water for a creamy look. [Actual price: $11.50]

👁Beau Gachis Tapered Blending Brush- This is an excellent blending brush! I tried it out for the first time yesterday and it did a superb job. It reaches those hard to reach areas in the crease/corners. I do wish that the brush had a better appearance though, kind of dull looking. [Actual price: $10.95]

Overall, this was a pretty good bag! 👌🏽 I consider a good bag one that includes items that I would actually use (not only for a certain occasion). However, I do wish I wouldn’t get similar items like gold eyeshadow two months in a row. Anywho, what did you guys receive in your IPSY bag this month? Different items/the same items? Any questions? Leave me a comment and I’ll respond asap. Hope you all enjoyed this blog. Stay tuned for my Play! by Sephora April 2018 box review coming tomorrow. Until next time, Neviewers! ♥

As always, likes/comments/follows are all appreciated 💋

  1. I got the clay mask & the night cream too! It looks like we got the same brush but they were by different brands. That eyeshadow is so pretty but I totally agree that it’s annoying when they send they send pretty much the same thing two months in a row!

    1. It looks like we got a lot of the same products this month! I hope you liked the brush you got- I remember reading about it on your blog 🙂 But yeah, I like when they send a diverse group of products.. it’s easier to build a collection that way!
