In the Caboodle: April Glam Bag and Julep Maven Box

Don't forget to enter my 30th birthday giveaway jamboree!!

This week you get 2 subscription boxes for the price of one...because I am waaaay behind in posting about beauty stuff.
First up, my Ipsy Glam Bag.  

Be a Bombshell Blush in Sweet Cheeks: I really liked the super pink color of this blush.  I thought it would be nice for the summer.  However, as you can see from the swatch on my hand, it's not very pigmented.  I haven't worn it all day yet, but I don't think it's going to hold up.

Sation Nail Laquer: Again, I didn't try this out for a long term wear.  However, I might as well just put on coat of clear polish.

Mica Mineral Shadow: I really like this powder as a highlighter.  It's super light and has a great shimmer.  However, I have more highlighters than one person can ever use in a lifetime.'

Big Sexy Hair Powder Play: This powder promises to add volume to your hair.  I have no idea how this stuff works.  I haven't used it yet because the sample is only big enough for one maybe two uses.  So, I need to save it for a special occasion I think.

I was not in love with 2 of the products this month....but there were 3 full sized I really can't complain.

And now on to the Julep Maven box.

This was my favorite Julep Maven Box so far.  This month's theme was brights.  

I love that Julep gives you a preview each month of the available boxes.  I took my normal "Bombshell" box. The polishes were the main draw.  A shimmery raspberry color, Janel, and a bright blue, Ally.  These colors are going to be great for the summer.  I can see that electric blue on my toes.

And there was a cuticle serum that's helped my cuticles recover from the ravages of winter and some rock candy.

And this was my favorite Julep box....until May.  So, stay tuned.
