Ipsy Glam Bag & PopSugar Must Have Box: April

Hey you! How was your weekend? I have a cold, but I didn't let that stop my from driving back home to see my Lil Sis star as "Marty" in Grease. I was so proud of her and she did well! Since she was one of the Pink Ladies, I thought it was only fitting to start off with this month's Ipsy bag, themed "Pretty in Pink."
Three of the products were full size, which I really liked.

  • Be A Bombshell Blush--A highly pigmented pressed powder blush that highlights the complexion and provides long lasting color. Can be used both as a blush or a bronzer. Glam Bag subscribers will receive Beach Please, a bright matte pink OR Sweet Cheeks, a medium rose pink with shimmer. I received Sweet Cheeks.
  • Sexy Hair Soy Renewal-- The nourishing styling treatment with multiple benefits! Speeds up blow drying time, nourishes and protects hair, and enhances shine. Made with Moroccan Argan Oil, Soy Renewal addresses moisture, frizz, smoothness, elasticity and shine concerns, while protecting against heat and environmental stresses. It made my hair softer and did ok with frizz. The other sample others received was a hair powder.

  • MicaBeauty Mineral Eyeshadows--Extremely gentle, free of preservatives, chemicals, dyes, talc, oils, and other fillers. With this unique formula, the eyeshadows will look ultra smooth and stay put for hours without creasing or pulling the delicate eye area. Can be mixed with clear lip-gloss, clear mascara, and clear nail polish to add pigment to lips, eyelashes and nails! Glam Bag subscribers who receive this product will receive Earth, a light shimmery pink. It is a pretty shadow but I rarely wear something this shimmery, and would have preferred the sample others received. I'll probably turn this into polish.
  • Sation Nail Lacquer--A contemporary beauty company, infusing a creative direction in nail care through a blend of lifestyle aesthetics. The collection features 120 colors from its seasonal & limited collections.
  • Glam Bag subscribers will receive Of Corset I'll Call You, a romantic lavender-rose OR Love At First Byte, a light peachy pink. I received the former. It's a pretty color but takes many coats to see the true color.

My PopSugar Must-Have Box was a little underwhelming, to say the least. But I do like that it's eco-themed, in honor of today's Earth Day. Here's what I got:
  • The Green Garmento Four-in-One Reusable Dry-Cleaning Bag--It looks like a black garment bag, but it's much more than that. It can be used as a laundry bag, hamper, duffel, and garment bag. I do love a multi-purpose product!
  • Tatcha Petal Fresh Evening Aburatorigami Beauty Papers--What's the deal with the long names for products this month? This mouthful translates to "blotting papers." I like using my Starbucks napkins, but these are small and they work well.
  • Shashi New Nugget Bracelet--As you can see in the pic, it doesn't form a circle, so it fits awkwardly on my wrist. I like adding it to other bracelets.
  • Kai Perfume Oil--This classic scent of gardenia and white exotic flowers has a devoted celebrity following. It smells like a Demeter perfume.
  • Alter Eco Dark Quinoa Chocolate--This is like a fanicer, darker, and healthier (?) version of a Nestle Crunch. It's fair trade and organic. It was tasty.

  8. The pop sugar box didn't impress me at all. Hopefully they'll make it better with the next ones.

  9. The pop sugar box is a little sad but I do like the sound of the quinoa bar!
