April Ipsy Bag Review - Paint The Town Chic

April Ipsy Bag Review

I've been debating for a while whether to join Ipsy or not, and I'm so glad I did.  My first sample bag (and definitely not my last!) was filled with 5 products all with a Beauty Rocks theme.



1.) Cover FX, Mattifying Primerwith Anti-Acne Treatment

My skin can get really oily, so my makeup never lasts more than a few hours.  I've tried a few primers to help control the shine, but nothing has worked as great as the Cover FX primer.  The clear gel glided on smoothly and didn't make my face feel dry.  After waiting for the primer to dry, I applied my makeup right on top and didn't have any problems.  After a 10+ hour day, my skin still isn't that oily, which is amazing!  I can't really speak to the anti-acne part of the primer, but I will definitely be using it as a primer!  Of the 5 items in my bag, this was my absolute favorite and I can see myself buying this again!

2.) Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Pencil Travel Size

As someone looking for the best eyeliner, I've sampled the 24/7 Velvet Glide-on Pencil in a gold shade at Sephora and really liked it.  The black was no different!  It glided on so smooth and was perfectly pigmented.  Definitely impressed with this.  I would love other colors in the travel size.  I use black too much that the travel size won't be enough!



3.) Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm

I'm not a big fan of lip products that are not in a tube.  With that being said, I kept an open mind while trying the Cailyn Candy Apple tinted balm.  I loved the color, but found that it was not moisturizing for my lips.  I quickly applied some gloss that I had on hand and it looked nice, but I'll have to experiment with more lip glosses.  The shape of this is also not clutch friendly!  Glad I tried it, but would not buy this again!

4.) City Color White Gold Shadow and Highlighting Mousse

I thought that this was such a beautiful color.  On my skin (I'm a medium tone) the shadow went on as a gold shimmer and it seems like you can build up the product depending on how you want the coverage to appear.  I used my finger to apply it, I don't think a brush will work well with it.  I'll have to play around with that more.  I will definitely be using this as a shadow the next time I go out!



5.) Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes

I really like fake eyelashes, especially ones that are more natural looking.  I've used Kiss eyelashes before and really liked them, so I'm sure this won't disappoint.  I'm saving these for a special occasion!
