I try this subscription box : Ipsy Glambag – April 2015

This is my second Ipsy Glambag review. It is a 10$ a month subscription, very important for Canadians to be aware of the exchange rate and shipping. It comes up 19,20$. You get 5 samples or full size products and a makeup bag.

The box is shipped on the 15 of each month and you can get a sneak peek of your subscription box via their website, or on Instagram and Facebook. Personally, I like to be surprised when I receive my box. I also had to unsubscribe to their Instagram channels. But maybe I am the weird one.

Here is what I got :

I try this KCO Color lipstick in the color Natural Born Beauty:

This is a darker shade of lipstick that I am use to. The texture is very creamy. When I held the tube and I saw the same color at the bottom I guessed that it was a lipstick and a gloss. I got really excited. My excitement didn’t last long. When I manage to open the lip gloss side it was broken, I couldn’t get to the product. I was very bummed.

I tried this Hikari Blush in the color Tango:

I am very happy with this product because it is something I use and the color goes very well with my skin tone. The good thing about this product is that it is full size. I am very happy about that.

I tried this Ultra Light Moisturizer from Lather:

I am a disappointed by this product. After using it, my skin still felt dry. It also had an organic smell, if I can say. Herbal might be the beat word the describe it.

I tried this JOR’EL PARKER Perfume in the scent Femina:

I am not fond of receiving perfume samples. However this is a big sample size than I am use to and I love that it is a roll on perfume. I found the perfume was a little strong, from what I usually use. I normally go for light and sweet perfumes. I wasn’t sure how to describe the smell so I found the list of fragrances on the Ipsy website : Meyer Lemon, White Grapefruit, Satsuma Mandarin, Summer Forsythia, Pink Plumeria, Wild Verbena, Tahitian Vanilla, Sensual Musk. I think the ones that comes through the most are the grapefruit and the musk.

I tried this The Blam Eyeshadow in the color Flirty:

I think this is my favorite sample this month. I wasn’t sure about the color but when I swachted it on my hand it looks beautiful. This is purple and in the light you can see a gold shimmer. It was difficult to get this on picture!

Overall thoughts:

The products were very diversified and I appreciated that. My favorite products are the Balm Eyeshadow and the blush.
