April ipsy Bag

6:00 AM

Sadly, this is my last ipsy bag.  As I've mentioned, I really need to start managing my money better. Paige (The Sticky Note Addict) has a subscription to BirchBox, and I love that she checks the full-size prices to see how much of a deal she got.  I decided to try that this time to see how much I've been saving. I did the math to see how much each product was worth in the size I received.
Elizabeth Mott eye-shadow (0.07 oz) // full size, worth $12.99
I love the champagne color of this eye-shadow, and there is just enough shimmer.  I use neutral colors and I'm always on the hunt for a shade that can be dressed up or down, so I have a feeling this will be in my daily make-up bag.

dr. brandt microdermabrasion (0.25 oz) // sample size, worth $9.75
This product sounds amazing.  I haven't used it yet, but reading about it has made me so excited to try it.  I love that it's such a small size, because if I don't like it then I'm not wasting it or forced to use it.  Especially because it's a $78.00 product.

Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet (0.03 oz) // sample size, worth $12.00
I have never used Urban Decay make-up even though I've heard such wonderful things about it, so I'm so happy I get to sample it!  I use eyeliner quite a bit, and you can never have enough!  I have never bought brand-name eyeliner, so this is an exciting first!

Cailyn lip balm // (0.14 oz) // full size, worth $19.00
First of all, I love that they sent us a full size.  Second of all, I love this shade.  Once again, I'm a neutral kind of girl.  Third, I love the set-up of it.  The top twists off to open the lip balm, and then there's a built-in brush to apply it.  I hate sticking my fingers in lip balm, so this is a great touch!

St. Tropez Gradual Tan Anti-Ageing (0.5 oz) // sample size, worth $10.00
This is another brand I've heard wonderful things about.  I'm a little nervous to use it, but I bet it's going to be wonderful!  If I fall in love with this brand, I'll probably be buying a set of the body lotion.

Basically, I spent $10.00 to get a bag and five full-size or sample-size items.  The total of each item I received was a little over $60.00.  Needless to say, I'm going to miss ipsy so much.  I'm sure I'll be back, though.
