Beauty Wise Wednesday: April Ipsy Bag reveal

Hello Spring!!! It's April and that means another Ipsy bag has come in the mail. This is my forth Ipsy bag I have gotten. I realize that some people still don't really understand what this whole Ipsy bag thing is, so let me explain. It is a monthly subscription service where I pay $10 every first of the month (it comes out automatically from my account.) You can also pay for the whole year at one time if you want and save a little bit of money. Anyways, I pay the $10 a month and they send me a monthly package that arrives sometime between the 11th and the 14th. The package, as you might have already seen from my blogs, come with 4-5 "sample" beauty products and a custom Ipsy make up bag. I say "sample" products because it seems mostly the products are full sized.

So onto what I got in this months bag: It is a white canvas bag with fuchsia pink, patent leather trim zipper and lined with pink and white stripes.

Product #1: Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal w/Argon oil. .85 fl oz. The full size product is $21.95 for 4.2 oz on Ulta.com. I figure that this sample size is a value of  $4.40.
Coupon Code: Save $5
Product description: Nourishing Styling Treatment. It say's that it helps speed up blow drying or to reduce frizz.
First Impression: I'm pretty excited to try this product out. It is another way to try out Argon oil and I'm really interested to see if it helps speed up blow drying. The smell is a light, with almost a coconut under tone, great for spring and summer.

Product #2: Be a Bombshell Blush in Sweet Cheeks. This is $16 on the Be a Bombshell website.
Coupon Code: 30% off + Free eye shadow
Product Description: It's a light pink shade with a bit of a shimmer.
First Impression:  I'm super excited to try out a new blush. I have used only one blush in all of my make up usage and I can't wait to see what I think of this. Love that it is a full size product.

Product #3: Two Cosmetics Duo Eyeshadow in Heartache. This is currently on sale on the Two Cosmetics website for $5.75.
Coupon Code: 25% off + free lip gloss
Product description: It is two shades of pink. first is a rosy pink that's matte and the other is a light shimmery pink.
First Impression: I'm a bit nervous to try out pink eye shadow because I know it can make you look tired. I think I'll have to play around with it a bit to see what other colors I can wear it with.

Product #4: Miss Professional Nail Sation Nail Lacquer in Love at First Byte. This is $5 in the Miss Professional Nails website
Coupon Code: 20% off
Product Description: It's a bit of a salmony pink.
First Impression: I'm not so sure about the color but I'll put it on for a few days and see what I think.

Also included is 30% off MICA Beauty Cosmetics and a 60% off Generation Beauty convention ticket.

Total value of the bag is $31.15 plus the make up bag. I'm pretty excited about this months bag and I hope all the products live up to my excitement.
