April Ipsy Bag Review

For those of you who have been living under a small rock (I say small because not everybody loves makeup and such like I do) Ipsy is a curated service where, after taking a questionaire you recive a beauty profile and then from there you'll recieve 4-5 beauty products a month. Usually within each bag is one full sized product and multiple deluxe samples. The bag is $10 a month (plus a small shipping fee, mine is $0.47 I believe).
The theme for this month's bag was "Beautifully Bohemian" which for some was perfect for Cochella and the rest of the music festivals happening in the next few months. The bag was a wicker like bag with bright contrast weaving. While the bag was not my taste it seems to be sturdy and decently made.

My bag came with 5 items this month, three that I'm excited to try and two that I could really without. The first thing I noticed when I opened the bag was the lotion, which is actually a daily moisturizer by Lather (full size here for $21). I opened this and popped a bit on my hand, while the smell was not something I liked it felt pretty decent otherwise! The next thing that caught my eye was definitely the nail polish as it was the second biggest item. The nail polish is by Julie and the color isn't crazy unique but I'm all for a new nail polish! Finally this next item is the teeny tiny eye shadow by theBalm. I have never tried any products from theBalm but have heard great things about the brand and the highlighters they've got. The shade of this one is Flirty from the fun Nude Dude palette.
The last two items are two things I'm not too excited for. The first is a lipgloss by Starlooks, the color is not my favorite and the consistency isn't to my liking. It was too gooey. The second was a perfume (the brand wasn't listed or if it was I didn't see it) that was too floral for my liking.
