Glamour Dollz x Lisa Frank Angle Blush Brush
Full Size: $6.66 (this is full size)

This gives me serious elementary school vibes! The brush is design by Lisa Frank in collaboration with Glamour Dollz. You might recognize her work creating colourful and whimsical school supplies. I think I used to own the unicorn sticker sheets (I was obsessed with unicorns).

Lisa Frank AmazonThe brush is vegan-friendly and really soft although I wish the brush was just a touch denser. I use angled brushes pretty often for blush and bronzer. I was looking at the Glamour Dollz website and so much of their makeup is affordable! I wonder if anyone has tried any of their items – I’d be interested to know if you have. The unicorn print on this brush is super cute.

Jessie’s Girl Liquid Eye Liner in Black
Full Size: $9.32 (this is full size)

Ipsy_April_2017_LBL5You can’t go wrong with liquid eyeliner and this one is bold and a true black. I did a swatch on my hand that dried pretty matte. I’m happy to have this in my bag.

Avene Rich Compensating Cream
Full Size: $48.99 (50mL), Sample Size: $4.89 (5mL)

Ipsy_April_2017_LBL3This is a daily moisturizing creme made for dry, sensitive skin. I received a different moisturizing creme from Avene before that I was excited to try. I like little samples like this because I can pop them into an overnight bag.

Adesse Cupuacu Butter Lip Balm
Full Size: $31.99 (this is full size)

Ipsy_April_2017_LBL6This butter balm is up my alley! Here’s the description off the Adesse website: Luxurious treatment that soothes, moisturizes and hydrates dry lips. The center core is infused with cold pressed Cupuaรงu Butter; derived from the Rain Forest and prized for its rich content of phytosterols that heal, hydrate and combat free radicals ( I’m really into the extra blast of hydration in the centre, plus it makes this look super cool! I haven’t swathced this to see if the pink outter layer is visible colour.

Cite London Bamboo Bronzer in Palm Island
Full Size: $37.32 (10g), Sample Size: $8.21 (2.2g)

Ipsy_April_2017_LBL7This is a pretty bronzer. Ciate is known for their nail polish but I am super impressed with the liquid eyeliner I received in my October Ipsy bag so I’m looking forward to this bronzer being a success too. It’s matte and has oil-controlling properties. I’m excited to give this a try.

My Thoughts
The majority of the items I received this month were full size items! That’s always really nice in Ipsy. I’m excited about all the items in this month’s bag! Total Value of my bag: $61.07

Did you receive Ipsy this month? Anything you’ve been loving in your bag?

Lots of Love,
