January Ipsy Bag Review - Paint The Town Chic

January Ipsy Bag Review


Here we are with the first Ipsy review of 2015!  I think my waits are getting more and more impatient these days!  I had another great bag filled with items I would never have chosen otherwise, which is the beauty of this subscription.


1.) Malin & Goetz Mojito Lip Balm - Let's start with my favorite item of January's bag!  As soon as I saw I would be getting this balm, I couldn't wait to try it.  First off, it's mojito flavor...does it get better?  And in the winter, I also have chapped, dry lips, so this was a lip saver!  I like the formula as it spreads nicely and is calming when applied.  It didn't feel too sticky to me but was very moisturizing.  My only complaint is that I didn't expect it to be shiny, but it's not a huge problem!  After quickly browsing through their website, I think I need to try everything.  This Lip Balm is definitely purse worthy!

2.) Nourish Organic Renewing Eye Cream - I don't typically use eye creams, but I liked this one.  The ingredients include avocado oil, argan oil and shea butter, which is quite the dream team!  My skin felt cool right after applying, which I liked.  This product reduces puffiness and dark circles, and since I don't have much of a problem under my eyes, I can't comment on its effectiveness!  Again, this is a brand that I want ttry other products.  Love that everything is all natural and the cute packaging doesn't hurt!


3.) Bella Pierre Shimmer Powder in Excite - This product didn't excite me, but I also don't mind it.  I don't think I'll use it as an eyeshadow, but more as a highlighter or accent.  It's a very pretty shimmer.  There are a ton of other colors, so I would definitely try another shade!



4.) Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eyeshadow in Treasure - I already own Pacifica eyeshadow from Ipsy, so this was another item that I wasn't anticipating.  But this is a very pretty color with great pigmentation.  This color is not so dark, but adds such a pretty sheen.  I tried something different with my eyeshadow.  I combined the color with face cream and it added a gorgeous glow.  You can see how the color appears mixed with face creme on top and pure eyeshadow on the bottom.  I have to do a better job of mixing the two, but I will be using this trick over the spring/summer.

5.) Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush - I'm ending this month with this pink brush that I am in love with.  I applied the above Pacifica shadow with this brush and it was perfect!  I would love to see more brushes in future Ipsy bags!

Not a bad Ipsy month after all!  There was a great selection of products and in fact there were a few items I didn't get that I would love to try.  The bag was pretty cute too. The other side of the bag was white; definitely a great color combo for spring!  I'd love to hear about your favorite January items below...
