April Ipsy Bag Review - Paint The Town Chic

April Ipsy Bag Review

Guys, I've really been slacking here with the Ipsy reviews, but I was determined to get this review in before my May bag shipped.  Success!  I also had to share the April selection with you because I got so many cool pieces that I wouldn't ever think to try.  Let's take a closer look!
Of course I was immediately drawn to the super cute vintage vibe of this The Balm Cosmetics item.  After closer examination (and a little swatch) I actually ended up liking this bronzer a lot.  It provides a gorgeous color payoff that can be layered for a darker look.  My only issue is the sample makes it hard to apply. 

I was beyond thrilled to see a new-to-me Hey Honey product for April; it's one of my favorite brands that I've discovered through Ipsy.  I've had a bad run with chapped lips lately, so this has become a staple in my bag.  This lip balm is super moisturizing, long lasting, and smells nice.  If you're looking for a new lip balm, I definitely recommend this.

I have a thing against liquid eyeliner - I usually find it to be messy and hard to apply.  But I decided to give this a chance and I was pleasantly surprised.  The tip made it easy to apply and the product dried quickly.  But after a few hours, it was already fading.  I will use this but not purchase again as I still prefer eyeliner pencils.
4.) Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Angle Brush (this was a pre-launch item coming in June!) 
Now this was the item I fell for at first sight.  I was obsessed with Lisa Frank when I was younger so this was a fun blast from the past.  But aside from the packaging, this brush is so soft and perfect for applying blush or contouring.  The bristles are also very soft.

5.) H2O+ Beauty Elements Keep It Fresh Cleanser
My favorite Ipsy items to try are always the skincare items.  It was no exception this time around.  I was happy to see a deluxe sample size face wash.  I was also happy to see that this is for normal to dry skin.  The cleanser is a gel, which is different from what I've been using.  The gel turns into a nice lather which was cleansing but not drying.  And it has a nice scent too.  I enjoyed using this cleanser.

We can't forget a quick note on the bag.  The ticket pouch was so cute and whimsical!
I wanted to also share my March bag, which I didn't get to review on the blog.  If you have questions on any of the products, feel free to ask below!  I cannot wait to see what's in store for my May Ipsy bag.
