Makeup Inspiration with my April’s Ipsy Bag

April ipsy back 2018 makeup inspiration review

This month’s Ipsy bag is my very first one since 2012.

I remembered it was all the rage when it first created by Michelle Phan but it was also something new to the market. Who knew that we could subscribe to makeup instead of magazines? That is pretty awesome.

For these upcoming Ipsy posts, I don’t want to do a typical review products/makeup subscription box posts. I want to do something fun and more creative with what I received in my monthly Ipsy bag. Which means I want to do creative makeup looks or other things that are inspired by products received in the bag. I am no makeup artist or someone who gets creative with makeup so this will be a great challenge for me! Hopefully, I will be able to get inspired by the bags I will be receiving. Fingers crossed.

It is now May, but I still want to post this April bag. Afterall, it’s not about the products but more about the creativity!

A quick overview: What we got in the April Ipsy bag?

  • Pastel baby blue nail polish by Nailmedic: Super nice colour but do not like the formula. Chips very fast.
  • Ciaté London Starstruck double tip liquid eyeliner: One side is a medium sized felt-tip liner and the other is a very cute star stamp. ⭐️
  • Hand cream by Bubble T with Lemon Grass and Green Tea [I haven’t tried this yet]
  • Retinol Rescue Overnight Cream by Clark’s Botanicals [ I haven’t tried this yet]
  • Pencil brush by Ruby: Very soft but I am not a pencil brush user.

Who is the star of the show of this month?

The eyeliner by Ciaté London’s star stamp and the nail polish have inspired me for this look! When I was in high school, the scene kid style was very popular and I always been drawn to it. Till this day, that scene that is inside me still lives. 😆 The eyeliner has definitely awakened this inner self. I always liked to wear pastel colours eye looks but most of the time I get intimidated by walking out the house with bold colours. Therefore, the blue from the nail polish has inspired from a colourful scene look and that star stamp is just perfect to add a touch of scene.

But seriously though… who cares at the end?

Yeah… I went out to grocery shopping with my mom like this. Did I get weird looks? Nope. I think I was too short for people to notice me anyway. But what if someone saw me? Well, all I can feel it’s being proud of myself to be able to pull it off and have fun.
