Ipsy comes up with a lot of great themes, April was no exception and with each sneak peek it unfolded in our Facebook feeds. The last peek revealed a purple bag with a screen print of a vinyl record with the words “Beauty Rocks” printed on it. Life is a dance floor, so why not live it up, sing out loud, and shake them hips?! This month, we’re celebrating our unique beauty to the sound of tunes.
I know a ton of women go crazy over Urban Decay, I however could careless about the brand. Every bag for the month of April included an Urban Decay Travel Size eye liner and your other four products were left to chance. Ipsy did a great job with the sneak peeks and I was totally on board when I saw that lip gloss would be in the equation. You know how I love me some lip gloss or lip balm. Well any lip product would tickle my fancy.
“What did you get in your Beauty Rocks Bag?” Oh! I am so glad you asked! Let’s find out!
Beauty Rocks! – April 2014
Cailyn – Tinted Lip Balm: Color Apple Pink – 3D Smart Film Former: This advanced technology stabilizes pigment powders and allows color stay put longer without losing its vibrancy. This balm won’t smudge or need to be retouched as daytime transforms into evening.
————————-> I have always wanted to try Cailyn lip balm and was super excited when I saw this item in my glam room. The color was very nice, yet I found that the balm dried my lips. I think this product should be applied over chapstick that way you would get a hint of color without the drying.
Urban Decay – 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil Travel Size: A must for smoky-eye fanatics: an ultra-plush version of UD’s creamy, waterproof 24/7 formula. Create perfectly blended-out or rich, precise lines that are blacker-than-black
City Color White Gold Shadow & Highlight Mousse: Brighten your eyes and cheekbones with the City Color White Gold Shadow & Highlight Mousse. This smooth and creamy product is enriched with luminosity, providing a beautiful gold sheen finish. Use as an eye shadow base as well as a highlighter.
dr. brandt® microdermabrasion:The dr. brandt® microdermabrasion gently sweeps away dead skin cells and softens skin texture, which enables better absorption of skincare products and helps diminish the appearance of fine lines, acne marks, and skin discolorations. A great at home alternative to professional clinical treatments.
——————–> 1. The cleanser smells like lemon drops. 2. Its hands down AMAZING! 3. I was about to plunk down some cash to buy the full sized product, until I found out a 2oz bottle will run you $78.00. $78.00? They had to be kidding, nope they weren’t kidding. Needless to say this black bottle of lemon drop smelling amazing will set you back 78 large ones.
Sexy Hair Root Pump Volumizing Spray Mousse: The Sexy Hair Root Pump Volumizing Spray Mousse helps create big volume by pumping up hair at the root. It dispenses out as a spray and turns into a mousse to give tresses tons of volume.
All in all I received a great bag this month and I’ve tried almost every product I received. The Urban Decay and Big Sexy are going into the donation box. The rest I will keep and I will definitely be dreaming about he Dr.Brandt Cleanser.
