Ipsy April 2013 Review

Well my Ipsy took a little vacation this month. I live about 2.5 hours from where its shipped so I usually get it super fast and some of my friends still did but mine decided to go to Georgia and Kentucky and then back to Georgia before it got to me this month. Ipsy switched from plain USPS to DHL/USPS this month so maybe that had something to do with it but since every ones didn't get all messed up I'm betting mine wanted a little vaca. :)

And now onto the goodness that came this month.  This month there were multiple either/or items and unfortunately I think I got all the ors that I didn't want. Not that they are bad just I think I would have used the others more.  This months theme was Pretty in Pink.

Here we go:

  • be a Bombshell Sweet Cheeks Blush - I'm very excited about this blush. I don't think I've gotten a true blush in any of my subs so far and I wear pink blushes so I will be using this one.
  • Big Sexy Hair Powder Play volumizing & texturizing powder - this is one of the either/ors.  If you know me my hair is straight and thick and I've just not gotten into the dry shampoo powder type products for my hair. Maybe I should be but I'm not there yet. The other item was a Soy Renewal treatment and that sounds more interesting to me.
  • Sation Nail Laquer in Love at First Byte - another or product. I normally wear louder polish on my nails so this being a beighy pink just isn't my style.  I can probably add some glitter over it to oomph it up but just not feeling it right now. I will say the other color was a little more pink but still pretty light for my taste.
  • two cosmetics Heartache Duo Eyeshadow - Again an or product. This is a set of pinkish hued eye shadows.  Cute but just not sure I will wear them much. The other product was a shimmer powder that sounded awesome.
  • Finally the bag.  If you don't know Ipsy sends a bag each month. Some I love and some I don't. This is white with pink and its cute but I'm just not thinking a white bag with all my makeup in it is going to be any good for me. LOL  Just saying but I can see it covered in color pretty fast. ;)
So as you can see not my favorite Ipsy but not horrible either. Ipsy is still my favorite sub I get and I do use most of what comes in my boxes most of the time.  Here's to hoping next months doesn't need a vacation and I get it super speedy ;)



  1. My bag took a vacation as well and then showed up the day after tracking showed a delivered status! I received the hair powder too. I have straight, thick hair like you, so not sure if this will work or not. Fingers crossed!

  2. Have you even tried the hair product? It didn't sound like it from your writing, but I'm not sure. Anyway, if you haven't, you should give it a go. My hair is also straight and thick and I am in LOVE with this product! It is not a dry shampoo, it is a root volumizer. I'd love to know what you think after you've tried it. :-)

    1. I have not tried this one yet. I have tried others like it and wasn't thrilled. I do plan to try it and that's what I love about these subscription services I do get to find and try new things. Some I do fall in love with and some just aren't for me. I need to do a blog about some of the things I've tried that I've fallen in love with. Some are even things I'm sure I was Meh about in my initial post.
