Oryza Beauty Glow UP Lip Balm in Watermelon Waves, Full Size – $17.55 Value
I was blown away by how moisturizing and nourishing this Oryza Beauty Glow UP Lip Balm in Watermelon Waves felt on my lips. The combination of watermelon fruit extract, sweet almond oil, shea butter, and Oryza Sativa rice germ oil worked together to soothe any irritation I had and gave my lips a subtle rosy-pink glow. It's the perfect addition to my everyday routine, giving me a little bit of color and protecting my lips from aging at the same time. I highly recommend giving this balm a try!
Shaina B. Miami B. LOVELY EYE SHADOW DUO, Full Size – $23 Value
I have to say, I am head over heels for the Shaina B. Miami B. LOVELY EYE SHADOW DUO. This pairing is the ultimate when it comes to romance and versatility. The colors are subtle yet stunning, with a beautiful nude shimmer and a neutral matte finish that can be dressed up or down for any occasion. What's even better is the quality of these shadows – they are pressed powders that are silky smooth to the touch and have an incredible staying power. I absolutely adore the Port-Au-Princess and So Deco shades, and would highly recommend this duo to anyone looking for a go-to that will never disappoint.
Supergoop! Daily Dose Hydra-Ceramide Boost + SPF, Full Size – $46 Value
I have finally found the perfect SPF face oil for the warmer, sunnier days of spring – Supergoop! Daily Dose Hydra-Ceramide Boost + SPF. This baby is a powerhouse, let me tell you. Not only does it provide reliable sunscreen protection, it also contains hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and squalane, which work together to fortify your skin's natural barrier and lock in moisture. The result? A beautifully hydrated, healthy-looking complexion that stays that way all day long. Bonus points for being a clean chemical formula that works for all skin types.
Benefit Cosmetics the POREfessional Good Cleanup Pore Purifying Foaming Cleanser Mousse, Full Size – $29 Value

This gel face cleanser transforms into a refreshing, feelgood foam that gently purifies your pores without leaving your skin feeling tight or stripped. With regular use, your pores will look visibly minimized and your skin will feel fresh and smooth. Plus, it's clinically proven, dermatologist-tested, and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Get the ultimate clean with this pore-purifying mousse, perfect for a thorough double cleanse after The POREfessional Get Unblocked cleansing oil.
TULA Skincare So Smooth Resurfacing & Brightening Fruit Enzyme Mask, Full Size – $36 Value
Wow, I am blown away by the TULA Skincare So Smooth Resurfacing & Brightening Fruit Enzyme Mask! As soon as I applied it, I could feel it start working with a slight tingly sensation. And after just 10 minutes, my skin looked brighter and more even. I love that this powerful mask combines pineapple, pumpkin, and pomegranate enzymes with gentle AHA, BHA, and PHA acids to exfoliate and polish my skin. Plus, the prebiotic and probiotic extracts help balance my skin and keep it healthy. This mask is a game-changer for anyone looking for a quick and easy way to reveal smoother, more radiant-looking skin!

Let's take a peek at what I got in my April 2023 IPSY Glam Bag! This box had a total retail value of $110!
Grown Alchemist Hand Cream in Vanilla + Orange Peel, 20ml Deluxe Sample – $8 Value
I was looking for a hand cream that would make my hands feel silky smooth and Grown Alchemist's Hand Cream in Vanilla + Orange Peel definitely fits the bill! The scent is absolutely dreamy and I love that it's made with all-natural ingredients. Whenever my hands feel dry and rough, I massage in this cream and it instantly nourishes and restores them to a soft and supple state. The best part is that it doesn't leave any greasy residue behind. I also appreciate that it's vegan and cruelty-free. Grown Alchemist has definitely won me over with their clean, science-backed formulas and chic packaging.
KAB Cosmetics Pressed Glow Powder in French Kiss, Full Size – $28 Value
The silky formula of the KAB Cosmetics Pressed Glow Powder in French Kiss brightened my skin and gave it an overall luminous glow that was perfect for any occasion. Not only can this product be used as a highlight, but its ultra-fine pigment allows for a poreless look that is buildable from a soft glow to a glam highlight. Its light reflecting properties truly make it shine from every angle. I also love that the creamy formula can be used as pinky tones for a blush. KAB's tip to apply the product to the high points of your cheeks, brow bone, bridge of nose, cupids bow, and décolletage is spot on for the most beautiful glow.
FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Gloss Bomb Heat Universal Lip Luminizer + Plumper in Lemon Lava, 9ml, Full-Size – $26 Value
The FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Gloss Bomb Heat Universal Lip Luminizer + Plumper in Lemon Lava did not disappoint. With just a hint of tint and a glossy finish, this lip product added a pop of color to my look without overwhelming it. What's more, the Plump Job Complex and hydrating ingredients like shea butter and vitamin E left my lips looking fuller and feeling softer. Plus, as a bonus, it's free of parabens, phthalates, and gluten, making it a cruelty-free choice that I feel good about using.
Shades & Shan The GEL Eyeliner in Brown Sugar, 0.28 g, Full Size – $28 Value
The Shades & Shan's Brown Sugar GEL Eyeliner not only glides on smoothly without any skipping or smudging, but it also boasts an impressive formula that won't budge for hours. With just one stroke, you'll get a deep, rich brown pigment that's perfect for any style you're going for – whether it's a sultry-winged look or a minimalistic, natural finish. But the benefits of this liner don't stop there – it's also proudly vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben-free, making it a guilt-free and sustainable choice for your makeup bag.
Ly's Beauty NO LIMITS Creme Bronzer Stick in Harmony (Medium), 7.1 g, Full Size – $20 Value
Ly's Beauty NO LIMITS Creme Bronzer Stick in Harmony (Medium) will effortlessly enhance your natural glow without being too overpowering. This versatile stick glides on smoothly and blends seamlessly, leaving you with a luminous, sun-kissed finish. The medium shade is perfect for those with light to medium skin tones, and the buildable formula ensures that you can achieve your desired level of warmth without ever looking cakey or unnatural.
