The April Ipsy Glam Bag Plus review and giveaway

Ipsy Glam Plus for April

This month Ipsy’s Glam Bag Plus is all about Fresh Spring Beauty. I’ve noticed that not everyone received the exact same box but many products were repeated. I subscribe to the Plus version after years of the regular Glam Bag. The difference is the value and that everything is full size in Glam Bag Plus. This box has a value of $189 for my $25 purchase.

Because I’m trying to downsize I’ve decided to use most of this month’s subscription for a giveaway. There is one product that’s new to me that I’m keeping but it will be replaced with another in the giveaway.

How can we spring into a fresh beauty routine with Ipsy?

First do a cleansing with PARIS HILTON SKINCARE ProD.N.A. Dual Action Cleansing Gel ($29). This gel is infused with exfoliating caviar lime and pineapple-derived enzymes to brighten skin, cucumber to depuff, and white tea extract to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sun damage. No puppies were hurt in the production of this cleanser.

“Formulated with caviar lime – an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) known for its natural exfoliation properties and essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants – the ProD.N.A. dual-action gel cleanser is the first step in any age-delay regimen.”

Next for skincare is GOLDFADEN MD Bright Eyes Concentrate ($55, $52 on dermstore.com) and this is the product I’m keeping. I love Goldfaden MD skincare and I love eye cream so you know that I need to add this to my collection. This is for dark under eye circles which aren’t my biggest problem but I do have circles that I’d like to see lightened.

“Goldfaden MD’s Bright Eyes – Dark Circle Radiance Complex hydrates, renews and nourishes the delicate skin under the eyes for a brighter appearance. Vitamin K boosts circulation to improve the appearance of dark circles, while seaweed extract helps reduce puffiness. Additionally, jojoba oil smooths away fine lines and crow’s feet.”

To use with all your skincare and foundations is the IT COSMETICS #704 Heavenly Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush ($48). I have this brush already and love it. According to Ipsy it gives makeup products an airbrushed finish, blurs away the appearance of fine lines and pores. And it helps apply skincare like a dream. IT brushes are so soft and ones that I’m thrilled to use.

BENEFIT COSMETICS High Brow Eyebrow Highlighter ($22) is the next item in the box. This is a matte, linen-pink shade that helps accentuate your brows for a brighter more lifted look.

Last is a beautiful LAURA SANCHEZ MOODS Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette ($35). With 4 matte and 4 metallic eyeshadows in the palette you are getting the best of both worlds. But you are also getting 2 beautiful highlighters. Use the IT Cosmetics brush to apply these.

This palette will be a beautiful spring and summer one to give you different makeup looks.

Since I won’t be including the Goldfaden MD eye cream I’ll be substituting it with IT Cosmetics Under Eye Eye Cream which smooths, brightens and depuffs. And for a bonus I’m adding in IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara in the full size. All you’ll need to do is add lips and you’ll look perfect.
