April 2013 Ipsy/Myglam Bag

Today, I received my April Ipsy Bag in the mail – yay!! The theme for this month’s bag is “Pretty in Pink” and it’s probably one of my favorite themes they’ve done. Pinks look good on just about everyone and it’s perfect for spring. The bag was really cute. With a pink theme, they could’ve made it really cheesy and girly but instead kept it really chic looking with a pink and white color block exterior and pink/white Victoria’s Secret-esqe interior. 
In the bag:
  • HealthySexyHair Soy Renewal – I love the SexyHair line so while I wasn’t sure how this fit into the “Pink” theme, I didn’t mind getting this travel-sized nourishing treatment for my hair (I know I need it). It claims to give multiple benefits which include speeding up blow drying time, nourishing and protecting hair from heat, reducing frizz, and enhancing shine. To receive $5 off of $25 or more of SexyHair products, use the code 108888 at Ulta.com.
  • Sation Nail Lacquer in Love At First Byte – While I do like the light peachy-pink color, I’ve heard complaints about the drying time which is a huge factor to me when it comes to my nail polish since I’m so impatient. To save 20% use the code IPSY30 at store.misspn.com.
  • Be a Bombshell blush in Sweet Cheeks – I still have yet to use this blush on my face, but I’m already a fan. I love the smooth texture of the blush and was very pleasantly surprised at how pigmented it is. I also love the medium rose pink color. It is very shimmery too, and I can’t decide if that’s a plus or not yet. Use the code IPSY30 to receive 30% off and a FREE full size pink shadow at beabombshellcosmetics.com/blush.
  • MICABEAUTY Mineral Eye Shadow in Earth – The loose eye shadow is a light shimmery pink color that claims to be gentle, stay put for hours without creasing, and be free of preservatives, chemicals, dyes, oils, and other fillers. You can also mix it with clear lip gloss, mascara, or nail polish to add a little sparkle and color. I tried it on my hand and it is very sheer but definitely gives you a lot of sparkle and shimmer.

All in all, I really enjoyed this bag! What did you guys think?

  • Such fun goodies! I really like the white/pink bag. I have never heard of this subscription service….what a nice surprise to get in the mail each month!


  • Hi Amanda, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  • I wish I'd gotten the mica powder. I ended up getting the other option, which I don't think I will ever end up using as its kind of hard to put on so that it really pops. I'd need to get some shadow base which to me is a hassle- I like when they come highly pigmented. Or else why would I not simply just go buy drugstore brands?

    I also wish I'd gotten the volumizing powder because I love that stuff. Oh well!
