Ipsy Glam Bag April 2022

The Ipsy glam bag is $12 (?) a month and contains 5 deluxe sample sized (sometimes full sized) beauty products.

Benefit Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer “4- Can’t Stop Light Cool” $24 full size

I have been curious about the Benefit Boi-ing concealer in the past, so I’m excited to see it included in my Ipsy. I’m particularly interested to see how it will wear under my eyes. I think the shade I got will be a good match. I’m currently trying to use up a deluxe sample size of a Tarte concealer, but once that one is gone, this one will be in rotation.

Kokie Cosmetics Eyebrow Pencil and Brush “Blonde” $8

I have been wanting to try more from Kokie, but I never see their products in stores near me! I have used a concealer from them in the past ( also from Ipsy) and I used that sucker up I loved it so much. I really do just need to make an order from their site. I have high hopes for this brow product. It seems like it will be pretty precise and a good shade match.

MAAPILIM Exfoliating Solution $63 full size

“It’s formulated with AHAs and BHAs to help dissolve dead skin cells, degunk pores, and leave your skin super soft and smooth.” It’s always exciting to get to try out expensive skincare. I will have to throw this in my skincare rotation to see if it makes any difference.

SOROCI Low-Hyaluronic Tangerine Booster Serum $29 full size

This is meant to have the hydrating benefits of Hyaluronic Acid as well as the brightening and firming benefits of tangerine extract. Apparently if you put this on before the rest of your skincare routine it will boost absorption.

COSRX Inc. Master Patch Intensive $12

I have some of these from other brands that I need to go through. I have tried the mighty patch brand and didn’t think they worked, hopefully these will perform better.

The Balm The Balm and the Beautiful Vol 1

I am not sure why this was included in my bag. It isn’t in my card, I didn’t order any add ons and I don’t recall ordering anything separately. But this is a happy accident! Ever since I saw Emily Noel use it in a video I have wanted to try the palette for myself.

The colors seem right up my alley. They are pigmented and the color story itself is very nice.

I am really excited to give it a go on my eyes!

That is it for my April Ipsy! I really enjoyed this bag! I think it’s the best one I have gotten in a while. What was in your Ipsy? What is your favorite Kokie products? Comment below!

Sephora ( inside JC Penny) It’s a Perfect 10 Set 2015( more like a many products mini review!)

Though this specific kit can no longer be purchased itself, the products included inside the kit can. Therefore, I decided it was worth while to review its contents and do a simple look with them and see how much lasting power they have as a whole! So, continue reading if you are interested in my take on the 10 products included in this nifty little kit!

As you can probably see from the image above there are some pretty awesome products included in this kit. BUT sense, as I stated before, this kit is no longer available (unless some lucky person can find it on Ebay) take this as a product by product review. Let’s get started.

The first product I pulled out of the kit was the Original Beauty Blender. I don’t want to spend too much time on this product, because we all know it is a tried and true way to do many steps of your makeup routine. It’s safe to say I love this product and was glad to receive it.

Price: $20 at sephora

This perfume (Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black)  was the main reason I purchased the kit. I absolutely love it! With its notes of sandalwood, violet, and vanilla; this perfume gives off a really warm, sexy scent.

Price: Roller ball at Sephora is $22

Does the Urban Decay all nighter makeup setting spray really need another review? No, but I am doing one anyway! I love this product, I have gone through a few full sizes of this sucker and was very pleased to receive a travel size of it within this kit. Travel size setting sprays come in handy much more than you would think in a 20 year old woman’s life!

Price: Travel size: $14; Full size: $30

I was not very fond of the Makeup Forever primer that was included. It didn’t actually do much as a primer and acted more as a moisturizer, which I should have expected because of the name. There are a few other formulations of this primer ( only at Sephora) that I am willing to try, but this one just was not meant for me, which is surprising, sense my skin tends to be very dry. I would also like to mention that this sample literally had one use in it. How can you truly judge a product with only one use Sephora?!
