Review: Be a Bombshell Cosmetics! + Coupon Code!

Haul + Review!

Be a Bombshell Cosmetics
Be a Bombshell is a brand that shows up once in a while in my Ipsy bags. I was super impressed with what I tried so far that I decided to place an order to try some more! I got a great deal with a coupon code that I found on the Ipsy website so if anything you see interests you make sure to use IPSY40 at checkout for 40% off your entire order plus a Free Lip Crayon! (Awesome, right?) The line is pricier than what I expected so I would take advantage of the coupon code, it's good until April 14th.
After having some time to give these products a try I must say that I love them! They were all amazing quality and if I had to I don't think I would be able to pick a favorite. The first thing that caught my eye was the packaging, it's really cute and resembles the Mac Cosmetics packaging a lot! It's sleek and pretty sturdy just like Mac...pretty much identical. They have a great range of products and colors that would suite almost everyone. On their site you can read more about how the brand started. It's refreshing to know that there's meaning behind the name and that a fellow beauty junkie created such an amazing brand!
Here are the products that I tried:

*Eyeshadow Quad in Madrid- I ordered this on whim because I'm picky with my shadows but this ended being really good! The colors are beautiful and really pigmented. They are smooth and work very well together. There's 3 satin/shimmer shades and 1 matte shade. It's a well rounded palette, my only con is that it retails for $16. I think that's a bit up there but with the 40% off it was $9.60 which wasn't too bad.

*Blush in Glowing Goddess- This blush is a beautiful shade, the site describes it as a medium peach with a hint of shimmer and that is spot on. It leaves your cheeks glowing, I love it! Now...this is the first product that reminded me of Mac, it's the exact size of a Mac blush... twins! haha. Here's a picture so you can see what I mean:

I guess there must be someone out there that would complain about the packaging being identical to Mac but I like it! If you have a Mac palette I'm sure you can depot the Be a Bombshell blushes and shadows and add them to the palettes. The blush retails for $16 which isn't a bad price for a quality product.

*Lip Gloss in Caliente- Being Hispanic I was quickly drawn to the name of the gloss (which means Hot in English!) plus the color was gorgeous! It's a very opaque coral shade that goes on with the color payoff of a liquid lipstick but the shine of a gloss. It's really pigmented so you don't need too much to get the color in the tube. It's not sticky at all and very long lasting! I love love love the formula! The glosses retail for $14 and with the code it would end up being $8.40.

*Eye Shadow in Clover- I thought I was getting a free Lip Crayon when I used the coupon code but somehow this eyeshadow made it in my order haha. No complaints since its free and its a pretty color. It's out of my comfort zone so I won't use it too much but its nicely pigmented. It does retail for $14 each so I don't think I would purchase any of them myself, it's too pricey.
Bottom line: The products are great! I would recommend giving them a try while they are on sale. Personally I do think they should lower their prices, certain items are just too pricey. I don't want that to take away from the product itself because they are amazing. But for a brand that is marketed to be inexpensive compared to the higher end brands they should make some price adjustments. Take advantage of the coupon code while it's available! :-)
