Oh my gosh guys, I really suck at this! I know it’s April and I’m just now posting my March review. Oh well. Well here ya go.
Let’s start with Ipsy this time. Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription box. Each month you get 4-6 beauty products inside a makeup bag. If you’d like to subscribe to Ipsy, I’d appreciate you using my referral link. It arrives each month in a pink bubble mailer!
This month’s theme was ‘Destination Beauty’. I don’t have a picture of the theme card and I’m too lazy to go take one. But you don’t really care anyways do you? You’re after the goodies. So here ya go:
bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready. A perfect mauvy-pink perfect for anytime really. Love that it wasn’t a bright pink or red. Sad that it was sample sized (but so cute).
NYX Love in Rio Eye Shadow. Nice neutral three shade pallet. This should get some use.
Chella Indigo Blue Eyeliner. This stuff applies nicely and stays on forever. Too bad it’s blue so I won’t use it. Hopefully I can find someone who will use it! (Ahem, send me black eyeliner only Ipsy!)
Pixi Beauty Flawless Primer. Y’all know how I feel about primers/bb creams. No thanks! Straight to the giveaway pile.
I didn’t care for the design of the bag this month. It is a designed from a piece of artwork. Abstract art isn’t my thing.
Now on to Birchbox.
As always the content card with prices:
So here’s what I got:
Air Repair Rescue Balm All-Purpose Skin Salve and Lip Balm. Thicker, vaseline-like balm. Seems to work nicely.
Previse Hydromilk. Haven’t tried it. It says you’re just supposed to slather it on.
Keims Cleanshine Energizing Shampoo. I’d rather not get shampoo in these boxes but that’s OK, I’ll give it a try. Too bad it didn’t come with the matching condition, I like to use them in as a set.
stila lip glaze in Raspberry Sorbet. Really pretty pink color, perfect for Springtime. The packaging remind me a syringe, maybe that’s the nurse in me? Haha.
Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream. Seriously guys, I’m one primer/bb cream away from a mental break! I have so many and I’m sick of them.
Overall both beauty boxes this month were just OK. They weren’t great but they weren’t bad. They had really neat items (bareMinerals lipstick, stila gloss), some OK products, and some meh products (Pixi primer, Jergens bb cream). As usual I can’t wait for next (er well this) month’s boxes.
