I loove this blog— she really gives you the run down on all kinds of subscription services. The site also has a great interface to create a profile and leave your own reviews. The BEST feature — which I just discovered this week — is the swap section of the website. You have to request to gain access, but, not to worry, it should only take a few hours to go through. I have already completed two fantastic swaps (just had to pay $3 in shipping per swap). I’ll share more when I get the items…Enjoy 🙂
Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm — This lip balm was just ok. I was surprised of the intense pigmentation…but it set looking kind of chalky. At least it came with a little lip brush 🙂
Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil Travel Size — This eye pencil is perfection. Super smooth application! I got a nice basic black, which is great because I just purchased the eggplant version.
dr. brandt® microdermabrasion — This felt soo good on my skin. I have very sensitive skin, and I was impressed that it didn’t leave me red!
Elizabeth Mott pop! goes the shadow — This beautiful, creamy champagne shadow has quickly become a staple in my makeup bag. I was sad to see that the website only had a few other products. I hope to see more soon.
St. Tropez Gradual Tan Plus Anti-Aging Multi-Action Face — I’ll have to report back on this one, but I am thrilled to try this brand.
Dang, ipsy! You spoiled me this month. I am beyond happy with the high quality products I received this month (Cailyn lip balm aside). I love this graphic purple bag. I plan to use it to keep my cords and smaller electronics in one place in my big ol’ purse. And, as always, there were fantastic coupon codes for all of the featured April products — including Coastal Scents!
Overall Rating: ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ 1/2
For example, you can get this 26 Shadow Blush Palette for $14.95…wowza.

That means that you could get this little beauty for only $15!
There is also an Earth Day Sale this week offering 35% OFF All Natural Products 🙂
Ok, I totally peeked at what I am getting from Birchbox. I’m not overjoyed, but I think I will enjoy the luxury products that I am getting this month. There will still be some surprise factor since I don’t know the exact shades I will be getting…so that makes it kind of ok? Maybe I could make up for it by deleting my tracking code email from Ipsy? Thoughts?
I just wanted to post a huge THANK YOU to Confessions of a Perfect Mom! She reached out to me to be featured on her Monday Morning Make Up Madness Party, which links up beauty bloggers across the internet. For a very green blogger, this is huge! I love the idea of these link parties because they truly foster community among bloggers. Make sure to check out the other link parties that she has featured!
