For those of you who don’t know about this subscription bag it is $10 and contain 5 deluxe size samples (and sometimes full size products) each month.
Ipsy starts with a beauty quiz that asks you questions about different things you like as well as your different features (i.e. Blonde hair, green eyes, fair skin). Each month you also can review the products your received; so if you love something you let them know and if you hate something you let them know.
Lets get into this months bag!
This month the bag was super cute with a theme of “Create”. They sent it with two markers that you can use to color on the bag with! I love this idea and I think it’s super cute and fun. Not to mention this bag is one of the bigger one’s Ipsy has made.
Now for the products.
Hikari; Cream Pigment Eyeshadow; Shade-Shine Retail Price $13
This pigment is gorgeous! I absolutely love how shinny and pigmented this is! And I’m pretty sure this is a full size eyeshadow! The gold is very yellow toned which isn’t always my favorite but I really enjoy using this one! I will say it does apply better with the finger than it does with a brush. I love adding singles like this to my collection so that I can build a wider variety of shadows to use and put be out of my comfort zone, which is what gold’s like this do!
Skyn Iceland; Pure Cloud Cream Full Size Retail $55
We have gotten skincare products from this brand before and I do really enjoy them. This is a daily moisturizing cream that helps with dry and sensitive skin. And I am sure happy to be getting this because this time of year my hands are still recovering from the winter and are having lots of dry patches. I also like the fact that this is a travel size so I can put it in my purse and take it with me as any where to help heal up my hands. Not to mention this stuff smells amazing! I think some of it has to do with the “Arctic Berries” that are in the formula. I don’t know that a full size of this would be totally worth it but I really love having this sample this month.
Benefit Cosmetics; Bad Gal BANG! Volumizing Mascara Full Size Retail $24
I’m all for trying new mascara’s but it’s hard when I think I found my new all time favorite in my boxy charm this month but I still gave this one a try. When I first opened it I wasn’t sure about it because the wand is the rubbery/spikey kind that I really don’t like. But none the less I wanted to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised that this brush didn’t seem to be pokey like others I had used and it also made for a soft application. The formula on this mascara is also kind of think so it adds a lot to the lashes. The one thing that I don’t like about wands/applicators like this is that it’s hard for me to get the thick and voluminous lashes that I really like. These kinds of brushes tend to separate my lashes and not make them look fuller. This does however had some really nice length to my lashes that I can appreciate.
Skin & Co Roma; Truffle Theraphy Cleansing Cream Full Size Retail $ 35
Skin & Co Roma is one of my favorite skin care lines all thanks to Ipsy. This cleansing cream was one of the things I also hadn’t tried from them yet and it’s really nice! I love the smell these products have and how soft and smooth my skin always feels and looks! I have been using this line for almost a year now and I am so in love with everything! It makes my skin look and feel great and it’s not overly potent on my skin. This cleansing cream is nice in the fact that it helps take off my makeup and is very smooth on the skin but I still use the Truffle Therapy Cleansing Foam to help remove everything from my skin. This line is also not super expensive. It’s very reasonable for the quality of products you get!
Steve Laurant; Orchid Lip Oil Retail Price $ 18
This is another full size for this month and I love it! I didn’t realize this was an actually lip oil until I put it on but it’s extremely nice on the lips and it smells sweet almost like vanilla frosting! I have only applied this to my lips before bet but I really want to try it over the top of a liquid lip to see if it acts as a nice gloss. I will say the nights I put this on when I wake up my lips are very soft and plump and I feel like my lip products apply a lot nicer. This will be getting a lot of use in the coming months!
Well that concludes my Ipsy bag for March! What did you get in your bag? What different things did you get? Leave a comment!
