What’s in My April Ipsy Bag?


Last month’s bag o’ goodies was a little hit-or-miss, but I’m really pleased with almost everything I got this time!  Here’s my take on the handful of treats in April’s bag:


Moroccanoil Moroccanoil Treatment

As someone with freshly-bleached hair, my locks tend to feel dry–sometimes even a bit crunchy.  However, I’ve been using this stuff for a week or so whenever I wash my hair, and it makes a tangible difference.  My hair still doesn’t feel like it did before I bleached, but the oil smooths it out and keeps it from getting frizzy.


tarte cosmetics LipSurgence Lip Creme in Wonder

Wonder indeed!  I don’t even know where to start with this one.  First off, I love the color–it’s a nice departure from all the reds I tend to wear.  Plus, that poppy shade makes it perfect for double duty on my cheeks.  I’m learning that as a pale person with super light hair, it’s important for me to wear a little extra color on my face so I don’t look too washed out.  But you know what the best part about this lip creme is?  IT LASTS.  Maybe not as long as my Santa Baby balm, but it’s pretty darn good.


City Color Cosmetics Highlight Trio & Luxie Beauty Dreamcatcher Tapered Highlighter Brush

Before I got this bag, I’d never used highlighter in my life.  I wasn’t even quite sure what it was for or how to use it.  After watching a few tutorials, I tried it out on myself, and I love it!  I’ve been applying a little to my cheekbones, chin, and nose each day, and I love how bright-eyed and bushy-tailed it makes me look–even at 5 a.m. on a weekday.


Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume

Actually, yeah, it’s a perfume.  And not a very good one.  My boyfriend says it reminds him of someone he isn’t friends with anymore, so I’ll be sticking to my natural Devinne smell instead.
