Ipsy Februrary 2014

Oh boy. So I’m pretty late getting this out. I bought myself a new laptop and it’s really time-consuming trying to get all my accounts downloaded and up to date but enough about that lets jump on in. It’s Ipsy time baby!

First look

First Item taken out is

Eyetini Cream Eyeshadow and Base

Eyetini’s Cordial Cream Shadow and Eyeshadow Base. This color was perfect for me. Not only is purple my favorite color but I love wearing purple eyeshadow. As a base I’m not so sure. I tried this out the other day and it faded throughout the day so I won’t use this again as a base. I think I’ll stick with my Stila Paint Pot. But I was happy to try it.

J Cat Beauty Eyelashes with Glue

J Cat Beauty Eyelashes and Eye Glue. I don’t really wear fake eyelashes. Thanks to my ancestors, I’ve blessed with really nice eyelashes that I’ve passed onto my babies! Every once in a while though I do like just to try out different pairs incase I want to wear them. This way I have an idea of how different pairs look on me.

Zoya Nail Polish

Zoya Nail Polish. This is my second Zoya nail polish I’ve gotten. The first was a beautiful purple with pink glitter but it went on really thick. So when I got this pretty pink I was really excited but the same problem. It goes on really thick. Does anyone have any suggestions for applying Zoya nail polish?

Skyn Iceland Fresh Start Mask with Ice Age Mud

The website says…

“This 10-minute weekly treatment polishes and re-texturizes skin to reveal a luminous, youthful translucence for a fresh start.”

Well since I’m late getting this post out I actually tried this out tonight. It burned but i tolerated it for the 10 minutes. My skin now feels really soft and smooth. If you can tolerate the burn I think its worth it. It wasn’t like anything I’ve ever used but one thing I do not like is the packaging. why not put it in bottles instead of this tear away packaging?

Pop Beauty Plump Pout Mini

Last item is Pop Beauty Plump Pout Mini. I didn’t get to try this item out because It had a really bad odor of chemicals? I threw it away and emailed Ipsy Right away. By the next day Ipsy had emailed me that they shipped out a replacement product. So I’m happy that I get a new one because this is one of the items I was really excited about getting so I can’t wait for it to arrive.

Ipsy January 2014

I just wanted to apologize I thought I posted this all ready last week but it looks like I didn’t so here you go this is Ipsy January 2014! Enjoy

It took forever for Ipsy to get here this month, seriously why does it take soooo long??. Okay so let’s get into it. As usual, Ipsy is $10/month and free shipping.

Ipsy January 2014

This bag was smelly this month. I’ve never gotten a smelly bag before hopefully this will be the last one. It smelled like chemicals. It smelled gross. I didn’t really care for the bag this month anyway so, eh no big deal. I’ll shove some fabric softener sheets in it and hopefully the smell will go away. Or I guess I could wash it too! Hahaha

Proactive Acne Fading Pads

The first item is Proactive Mark Fading Pads. I received four samples. I tried one right before I started writing this and this baby burns if you have any cuts, active acne going on it burns. Is it weird that I kinda like it. We’ll I don’t like the sting but at the same time I like to know it’s working. If that makes sense?

Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave-in Conditioner

So this is the Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave in Conditioner. That is a mouthful! Haha I just recently ran out of this. I bought the same exact one from the hair salon I go to. I grabbed it for $2.00. I didn’t really think it was great. I wouldn’t repurchase it again but I don’t mind using it since I have it. It’s always good to have backup leave-in conditioner if you have long hair. And I have lots of it. Hair not leave-in conditioner. Just In case there was any confusion there. Haha.

Epice Facial Exfolliant

This little baby is called Epice. It’s a purifying exfoliant. It smells fruity, which is always a plus in my book. And it feels very smooth, I mean it has the little beads but they all feel the same size and are very small. I really enjoyed this. I’ve used it twice so far. I don’t know if I explained that texture right. If you got this in your bag let me what you thought. I personally have enjoyed it so far. Actually you know what this reminds me of? The Michael Todd Tropical Fruit Face Scrub. I love them both!

Mica Beauty Tinted Lip Balm and Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow in Pearl

Sorry I guess I didn’t realize how crappy and unclear this picture was but it’s like 11 at night and I’m in bed with sick baby and hopefully not gonna get sick toddler. (FYI…Everyone got sick!) So I’m super sorry for the crap pic. I’ll put myself in timeout in the a.m. (–I wish) no but seriously sorry. But in this pic we have Mica Beauty tinted lip balm in Natural, which is a nudie lip balm. It’s so smooth I absolutely love it. But if I had one complaint about it I wish it came with a little lip brush. I know it’s a balm but it’s more like a gloss/lipstick that’s hydrating. And I hate getting my fingers messy. I feel like it should be like Caitlyn’s. Her cosmetics come with brushes. That’s the only improvement I’d make.

Also in the picture… Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow pencil in Pearl. I’ll throw in some swatches below

Swatched

I found this color to be more of a mauve. It looks really nice on and feels even better on your lips than you would think. It’s like silky!
nudie color on my lips. But the Smooth shadow swatch right above looks pretty much what it looks like in person. It’s beautiful.

Ipsy Card

I don’t usually show the cards but I thought this months was cute. It has 19 reasons why 2014 will be amazing. I stuck it on my fridge and I haven’t filled out 19 yet but I did get my first one written down.
1. I will not be pregnant this year!
I’ve been pregnant for the past three consecutive years, plus I have another child who is 10 so I am pretty excited to not being pregnant. I have to think about the rest but I do have that hanging on my fridge and the hubs thought it was pretty cute so there ya go! Haha.

That was January’s Ipsy bag! I would like to see more higher end make-up thrown in there. I love skincare so I don’t mind seeing skincare items but I wouldn’t mind more luxury makeup products that I’m interested in trying. You know what they should make? A MAC monthly subscription. I totally would be all over that. Speaking of MAC. I order the Riri Viva Glam Lipstick and some more MAC products today. Maybe I’ll do a little haulerooni when it all comes in.

At $10/month you can’t really beat it. The value of what you get is always more than what you pay.

Thanks for stopping by!!!!!
