My second April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag (Profile Comparison Experiment)

This month I decided to try out a second April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag just to see how similar or different they would end up being. I answered the profile almost the same as my original bag, and let the Ipsy gods give me what they wish. I actually ended up with a bag that I really love. I was super excited about 4 out of the 5 items in this bag, and am really pleased with this bag overall.

The April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag that I got with my original account and profile was not as successful, as I only really liked 3 of the 5 items. This new experimental profile ended up giving me a much more tailored bag somehow.

Let’s see what I got in my second April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag!

OFRA Cosmetics Blush in shade Rendezvous 
This is my first ever OFRA Cosmetics product and I have been so excited about it. It is a very deep peachy shade that looks a lot darker in the pan than it is in the swatch. It is completely matte which is different for me, as I only have shimmery blushes. I really like this blush a lot.

Tarte Cosmetics Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in shade Delish
When I saw this was included in my bag spoilers I was beyond thrilled. I absolutely loved the one I got in my last bag (in the brick red shade Vibin) and was so happy to get another colour. Delish is a medium nude hue and has the same smooth and light formula as the other one I have. It dries down way deeper on my skin than it looked in the tube.

Side note: I really don’t think I would have gotten this item in my other bag because I already had one last month. I am so glad I decided to do my experiment this month!

Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Glow Shimmer Shadow & Highlighter
I was also excited for this product since I like to try out highlighters but I never purchase them myself. This is a smooth shimmery powder with a nice light pale gold hue. I can be used as shadow or highlight and I will definitely be trying it out as both options.

Theorie Marula Oil Transforming Hair Serum
This could not have come at a better time! I was just looking at all my split ends and problems with my hair, and planning to add some light highlights this weekend, so a hair serum is the perfect item to help nourish my locks. This serum is safe for colour treated hair so it will be the first thing I use after I do my highlights!

Dream by PS Cosmeceutical Infused Nail Lacquer in shade Southern Sand
Normally I pass on the Ipsy polishes I get in my bags and give them away to friends and family, but this one I may have to try. I like the colour of it and it seems like a perfect fresh light nude shade for Spring and Summer.

Overall with this second April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag I am very happy with the OFRA blush, Tarte liquid lipstick, Elizabeth Mott shadow/highlighter. I am definitely going to be using the Theorie hair serum as well, and I like the nude shade of the nail polish.

This bag was a big hit, and I have to admit it was a lot better than my original April bag.
