Looks good so far.  I even love the bag!

Bella Terra Mineral Cosmetics Eye Shimmers in Navy
Retail $14.99 for 2.5 g – Full Size Sample

This is the dark purplely-blue I have been looking for – hooray!!
It will replace my MAC ‘Contrast’ since MAC has
started animal testing (thanks Estée Lauder for destroying
another great brand!).  Bella Terra is cruelty-free 🙂
Now to find a replacement for ‘Club’…

Sexy Hair Spray Clay
Retail $8 for 1.4 oz / 50 ml – Full Size Sample

This didn’t thrill me.  However, my girlfriend who I gave it to LOVES it.
It gives her blonde locks a beachy volume – which I found impressive!

Ole Henriksen Truth Crème
Retail $45 for 1.7 fl oz / 50 ml – Sample Value $6.30 for .25 fl oz / 7 ml

The formula is lovely and light!  Skin is extra soft!

However…

The smell is awful!
Think lightly rotting oranges with a little sour milk thrown in :-\
Had to wash my face because the smell was knocking me out!
This is why these samples are great – you find some good
and some not so good – or just down right stinky!

Zoya Nail Lacquer in Mason
Retail $8 for .5 fl oz / 15 ml – Full Size Sample

The pictures do nothing for this color – it’s GORGEOUS!!!
Very fall – if not the perfect Halloween purple!
Between the Navy Eye Shimmer and this I am torn as to which is my fave!
So thrilled I got them both!!

Coastal Scents Medium Shadow Brush
Retail $2.49 – Full Size Sample

Decent brush – you can never have too few especially at this
time of the year!

Total Value for my June Ipsy bag – $39.78

I really loved this bag.  The stinky face cream was not great
but the rest will be used happily!!

Ipsy – April

Wow!  Ipsy has rebounded from last month’s bag.
Many blogs posted disappointment with March’s offering – and they seem to have heard many of you out there!

April’s Theme: Pretty In Pink

Pretty In Pink

Hmmm… looking good so far – let’s look further!

Beach Please

Bombshell Blush in ‘Beach Please’
Retail $16.00 – Full Size Sample

Super bright pink!!
With the right touch and the right brush this will definitely give a rosy glow for spring.

Heartache

Two Cosmetics Duo Eyeshadow in ‘Heartache’
Retail $5.75 – Full Size Sample

Kind of mixed feelings on this one.  Cool they are pretty colors – and it is full sized.
Sad they are supporting a rather sketchy company that looks at profit over safety.
Hopefully, these are actually safe for your eyes.

Soy Renewal

Sexy Hair Soy Renewal
Retail $21.95 for 4.2 oz – Sample Value $4.22

Yay – I just ran out of my Josie Maran sample so this is perfect timing!

of corset I'll call you

Sation Nail Lacquer in ‘Of Corset I’ll Call You’
Retail $5.00 – Full Size Sample

I never heard of Sation until now.  I am loving this nudey pink – it’s the first to go with my skin tone!
Bonus it is 3 Free – no DBP, Toluene or Formaldehyde and made in the US!

Total Value for my April Ipsy bag – $30.97

Some may not be big fans of pink but I do like this bag.
For those with edgy looks they may be surprised what they can do with these if they give them a try.
Besides, Pretty In Pink was one of my favorite movies 🙂
