What was in my April 2020 ipsy Glam Bag?

Hey hey, it’s MJ,

            So I think I have been in quarantine for like a month now, I am still learning how to cope with forced isolation, I am fine with it when I am the one making the choice but not for this long. Like I miss my students. 

            Bright spot though is that I still am getting my ipsy bags, I know that’s a small thing but it is still something that I allow to bring me joy. 

            The bag this month is super cute, I love the dark lilac color and the kind of impressionist flowers. The zipper pull is a wooden ring and I kind of love it. 

What did I get though? 

Kismet Pure Vitamin C Primer:

            It’s sparkly, which is fine for a primer or like a body shimmer with a really diffused glow, it goes on like a water gel and I actually really like how it feels on the skin. The card describes the texture as silky and I completely agree with that sentiment. I have the Kismet sugar lip scrub that I use quite frequently and I like all the products I have gotten the chance to try form them.

Araceli Beauty Chiquita Blending Brush: 

            It’s a brush, I like how it looks, I like how it feels and it’s a nice basic brush, it is vegan and cruelty free and by now if you have read any of my posts you know how much I love seeing those words on beauty products. 

Murad Nutrient-Charged Water Gel:

            I love Murad and I am always happy to try new products from their line. This stuff smells amazing and a little bit goes a long way. It feels really nice on the skin too, I do text most products on my hand because I don’t want my face to break out because of a reaction. It’s oil free which is usually where I get the break outs so I am excited to actually give it a real try.

Neogen Dermatology Real Vita C Serum:

            It smells in the bottle but not on the skin, I like serums but this one is actually really thin but it is used for skin protection against environmental factors and harmful light. I like it  and I probably should wear serums more often anyway. 

Buxom Cosmetics Buxom Lash Volumizing Mascara in Blackest Black:

            I love mascara, there is no denying that and let’s be honest I prefer the travel sized products when it comes to mascara. I think I tried a Buxom mascara years ago but things have changed since then and I am excited to try it. The card tells me that it has vitamins in it that help condition lashes and that’s probably a good thing with mascara being one of the few products that I wear most days when I am at work, (right now I am lucky to leave sweatpants.) I am excited to give it a try though. 

            Overall I actually really like my bag even though it is half skin care but I’m not too mad about that. 

            If you want to read what else I have gotten from ipsy this year, check them out: January and March, February was my dead month so that one doesn’t exist. 

            I’ll see everyone in a few days, stay safe and healthy,

            -MJ
