January Ipsy Bag Review
Priyanka January 23, 2015
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...
