About Me

My name is Christen, I'm 30 years old and a stay-at-home mom to my three beautiful girls, Lauren, Hailey, and Farrah. My husband David and I live on scenic Long Island and we love it. Our party of 5 keeps pretty busy, but I try to set aside as much time as I can to blog (which isn't as often as I'd like these days).

Ipsy (MyGlam) - April 2013 "Pretty in Pink"

How excited was I about Ipsy's "Pretty in Pink" theme in April? My husband had never seen Pretty in Pink before (whhhhattt...right?) so we watched it together before I received my Glam Bag. Now, if only I could pull off red hair like Molly Ringwald! And trust me, it isn't from lack of trying. And failing. Not exactly my best look.

I'd be brooding too if I picked Blaine.

April's Glam Bag is made out of a thick white canvas material with a pink patent leather stripe near the zipper. The inside design is pink and white stripes with scattered Ipsy logos. The bag is very study and of surprisingly great quality! A handful of subscribers did not receive the bag shown because apparently Ipsy's inventory was not up to standards. Those subscribers were sent a the bag from last year's "Repair & Restore" theme to temporarily hold the products sent this month. Ipsy will be sending out the correct bag separately. I'm glad I got the bag everyone was supposed to get to begin with and I wasn't left confused.
I will most likely use all of the products completely. As a woman with fair skin, the color variations I received will compliment my skin tone and are light and neutral enough for the upcoming summer season. Perhaps Pretty in Peach would be a better description though - because when I think pink, I imagine a bubblegum shade. I'm anxious to try the Big Sexy Hair Powder Play so that I can compare it to the Got2Be POWDER'ful that I'm currently testing for BzzAgent. I will be posting a separate blog post about it though as soon as I've used both. The only thing I didn't like this month was the quality of packaging for the blush. When I hold the blush compact, the plastic is VERY lightweight and feels like it'll break easily if dropped or opened improperly. All in all though, I really liked April's Glam Bag.

Now I can say I'm ready to channel my inner Andy, don myself in pink, and wind up with the hot guy I always wanted.

Oh, wait, I already did that. ;-)
