April ipsy

I am impressed with the April ipsy Glam Bag!!  The print on the bag is super cute and perfectly springy.  My girls are going to 100% fight over who gets it, when I am on to the next one.  And there were two full size products in my bag, the nail polish and the lip gloss.

So what was in my bag??

  1. Punk Volumizer Mascara from Doucce
  2. Nail Polish from Pretty Woman in the color Girl Boss
  3. Lip Gloss from Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics in Nude Beach
  4. Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream from Sunday Riley
  5. Coconut Oil and Coffee Sugar Body Scrub from purlisse

Of course I was excited to try a new mascara.  Purlisse is a brand that has been around since 2012 and was created in New York, but it a Parisian inspired name.  Yes, I had to look that all up because I had never heard of it before either.  This mascara is $24 on their website, but isn’t carried at either Sephora or Ulta.  The brush is really cool because it has alternating short and long bristles to add serious volume and length.  It doesn’t clump or smudge, yay!

The nail polish is a really pretty color, but it is very thin.  Even with multiple layers, it feels like more of a sheer color.  I could only find legit products from Pretty Woman on their own website, and this polish costs $7.99.

I LOVE the lip gloss.  It’s the perfect nude with a bit of shimmer.  I’ll post a pic on my Instagram @blessedaftheblog  Neither Sephora or Ulta carry this, but I found it on the Dirty Little Secret website and on Amazon for $14.

The cream smells good and is VERY hydrating.  It has hyaluronic acid, tamarind extract, and papaya enzyme extract in the ingredient list.  The container is .5 oz and costs $22 on Sephora in the same size.  For the full size, 1.7 oz tub it’s $65.  This is good stuff!

The body scrub smells SO GOOD.  The company purlisse is about channeling beauty through Asian wisdom.  All the ingredients are very intentional toward that goal.  Coffee is used because of its antioxidants to fight free radicals and even cellulite (what?!).  Coconut oil is an anti-inflammatory.  And the list goes on.  The website is pretty cool.  This sample size, .7 oz container costs $10 on there.  The full size one, that’s 6 oz is $36.

So my April bag has $53.99 worth of products, plus the sample size of the Doucce mascara and the cute makeup bag.  Worth the $10!!
