April 1st couldn’t have come any faster, Ipsy surprised us with a delightful “April Fools” with a sneak peek! They usually start sneak peaks on the first Monday of the month but this month Ipsy started on the 1st (which was a Tuesday), I don’t know if it’s just for this month but I hope they keep it that way! I know I’m always eager to see sneak peeks so this is awesome. Ipsy is always trying to please us one month after another.
Soo because Ipsy started their sneak peeks on Tuesday, they are continuing on Monday. I saw on Instagram that there will be five items- I thought they were doing four again since the 5th sneak peek is usually the bag. This month’s theme is Beauty Rocks!
Okay, okay I know its a tad late for the sneak peeks but here’s just a reminder of what it looked like:
APRIL SNEAK PEEK #1: Bring out the velvet ropes and bust out your makeup melody for this awesome rock star product in your Glam Bag this month!
Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-on Eye Pencil, 1.2 g/0.04 oz for $20.00 or .03 oz for $15.00.
EVERYONE is getting the new formula in Black Velvet! The full size is $20 but we’re all getting a deluxe sample size which is worth around $10. I had the older 24/7 pencil in Smoke and I replaced the cap with a sharpener lid and that dried out my pencil so I can’t use it anymore 😦 Good thing Ipsy got my back. 😉
APRIL SNEAK PEEK #2: Life is a stage and your lips are at the center. Let one of these fabulous lip products take the lead!
Cailyn Tinted Lip Balms, $19.00.
I know Ipsy had the Tinted Lip Balm in the September 2013 bag and they specifically said they never send out the same exact product in multiple bags but I’m actually looking forward to trying them. I really wanted to try the other colors since Ipsy only gave out one color last time in Big Apple.
Mary Kay At Play™ Jelly Lip Gloss, .32 fl. oz. for $10.00.
I don’t need anymore lip glosses- my profile says I want lipsticks so we’ll see if the IpsyMatch works again… although I do want that Tinted Lip Balm that has the same pigmentation as lipstick…
Starlooks Lip Pencil in IPSY featured Longwear Lip Pencil, $14.00.
This was in June 2013 & October 2013’s bags but now Ipsy has its own exclusive shade! This is supposed to be a matte nude tone that compliments every skin tone. I have a feeling I’m getting this but I don’t like lip pencils since they seem too hard on my lips if that makes sense. (Update: I DID get this but will be trading.)
APRIL SNEAK PEEK #3: Hey DJ! Your beauty routine deserves a fabulous remix and one of these awesome beauty finds will help you scratch that!
City Color White Gold Shadow & Highlight Mousse, .092 oz for $3.99.
You can use this as an eye shadow base or a highlighter to give your face a gold sheen.
Rainbow Honey in Midnight Fountain, 16ml for $10.00.
This is such a gorgeous color! I love the blue sparkles and glitter- so pretty! I wouldn’t mind adding this to my collection at all. Plus its 3 Free.
pop! goes the shadow, champagne, .07 oz for $12.99.
More eye shadows! Long-lasting and crease-free. I actually got this in my bag but I will be trading since I have a similar color.
APRIL SNEAK PEEK #4: Tune up your beauty routine this music festival season with one of these amazing products!
lollitint tinted lip & cheek stain in Candy-Orchid, 0.08 fl oz. for $8.00.
The color of the year is Orchid so this is perfect for staying on trend. I know a lot of Ipsters will love this, I’m curious to try this but I have my eye on something else…
dr. brandt® microdermabrasion skin exfoliant, 2 oz for $78 or .25 oz for $9.75.
I really want to try this one too! Birchbox is also giving these out in their boxes but I haven’t gotten them yet. My skin is sensitive now so hopefully this will buff away my flakey skin without making my face more red. I’m glad to say this is on my bag- and wow I was expecting a much smaller sample!
St. Tropez Gradual Tan Plus Firming 4 in 1 Lotion, .5 oz for $4.00.
I heard this brand is really good but I have no need for self-tanners and “plus” how are you suppose to tan your face/body with .5oz? lol It’s nice that it firms your skin but you gotta have enough to cover it (daily) over time.
Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment, 15ml for $16.00.
This lightweight anti-aging gel-primer that helps keep skin matte and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and pores while preventing and healing acne blemishes- something I NEED. I wanted to try this so bad, Ipsy would rock my pants off if they give me this in my bag… just sayin. Sadly I didn’t get this but I’m on the hunt at eDivv.com.
SNEAK PEEK #5: One of these glam-rocking products is definitely going to get you to stand up and stand out from the festival crowd!
Kiss Lashes Looks So Natural for $4.00.
Again, new style from November 2013 but not too many Ipsters are happy to get these.
St. Tropez Gradual Tan Plus Firming 4 in 1 Lotion, .5 oz for $3.99.
Same from the previous sneak peek, they must have extras.
Such A Tease So Seductive Lashes for $3.99.
I thought the picture was a liquid eyeliner but its another set of lashes!
Demeter Perfume Oil Roll On (different scents from August 2012, July 2013, December 2013) for $10.00.
This is one of the popular picks- a lot of people really like this but I never tried one, although I’m not a fan of perfume.
Coastal Scents Medium Shadow Brush for $2.49.
This is a repeat from October 2013, I got this in my bag but Ipsy promptly offered me a replacement in my next bag. =) I’ll be putting this up for trade in my eDivv shop as well.
APRIL SNEAK PEEK #6: Put your records on and sing your favorite songs with all of this month’s fabulous beauty rocking picks!
That’s that… I actually just got my bag today so to recap, here’s what I got on my bag:
Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil Travel Size in Black Velvet. Retail: $15.00.
Coastal Scents Medium Shadow Brush. Retail: $2.49.
dr. brandt® microdermabrasion. Retail: $9.75.
Elizabeth Mott pop! goes the shadow in Champagne. Retail: $12.99.
Starlooks Luscious Longwear Lip Pencil in Naked. Retail: $14.00.
Bonus: TokyoMilk Dark by Margot Elena in La Vie En Rose. Retail: $7.00.
My bag was shipped out on 4/10/14 and I got it on 4/15/14. Its kinda funny because my Birchbox was “shipped” out sooner and they both came at the same time! My total bag come out to $61.23! Wow, even though I’m keeping three products from the bunch it’s still more than what I paid. I love Ipsy! To join, use my link then visit the facebook page to find out how to skip the wait list!
