Here's my January ipsy!
The bag is really cute, and much larger than the last couple of bags. I also LOVE the colors- it's blue and peachy and white. Not very "January" but I'm definitely hanging on to this one!
As far as the products go, I'm only MEH about all of them, other than the brush.
Bella Pierre Shimmer Powder in Excite
Recommended by make-up artists and dermatologists, BelláPierre shimmer powders are 100% Hypoallergenic and are suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive
How To Use: Sweep over eyelids.
How It Works: Using 100% pure Mineral powder, these beautiful shimmer powders will provide long lasting, vibrant color without any additional filler that can often smear, crease, fade and even cause allergic reaction.
Will I Use It?: I've had this product in my makeup bag since receiving it about 2 1/2 weeks ago, and have not used it once. It's a lot whiter than it's reading in the picture, and very shimmery. I really need to try it, but I have not yet, and don't see it becoming a regular part of my rotation.
Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm
(MALIN+GOETZ) Mojito Lip Balm is as soothing to the lips as it is to the senses. Flavored with (MALIN+GOETZ) Mojito, this lip balm is scientifically blended to restore and replenish.
How To Use: Apply to lips as needed. A tiny bit offers immediate relief with little shine. More generous application creates a gloss for use with or without lipstick.
How It Works: This hydrating lip gel easily integrates for daily maintenance, prevention and treatment of dry, irritated lips. Color and paraben free.
Will I Use It?: I have had such amazing luck with lip balms in subscription bags, and I'd have to say this is my favorite so far. My lips have been SO DRY in my pregnancy and this healed them practically overnight. (Okay, it was 2 days. But that IS overnight in beauty product world!) I am so impressed by this product.
Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow in Treasure
Rich, lasting, creaseless eye shadows are infused with coconut water for a velvety, cream-like finish.
How To Use: Natural mineral makeup formula blends effortlessly and can be used sheer, layered or built-up for more drama.
How It Works: An incredibly innovative formula that pushes natural makeup and mineral color to new bounds.
Will I Use It?: I've used this a couple of times since receiving it, and it's okay. The color payoff isn't as good as I wish it was, but the color is pretty, anyway. With a little patience to build it up, it becomes something really pretty.
Velvet 59 Velvet Rose Lipgloss in Noisette
Don't just stop and smell the roses - Wear their beauty on your lips. You will fall in love with the Velvet Rose Lipgloss.
How To Use: Swipe on lips.
How It Works: It's radiance and lustrous consistency makes your lips not just look but smell as fabulous as the classic rose.
Will I Use It?: I used it a little, and the color reads a little more brown on me than I personally like. I'll be passing this off to a friend.
Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush
Don’t miss a spot with this ridiculously soft shadow brush.
How To Use: Use it to highlight your brow bone and place the right amount of color for perfect and even application! Your lids will thank you later!
How It Works: This brush with its 100% synthetic bristles is the perfect multitasker.
Will I Use It?: I've used this several times since receiving it in my ipsy bag. Overall, it's a pretty good brush. I don't feel like it packs on the product in quite the way I like, but it would be a great brush for someone just getting into makeup, or someone like me that has a lot of brushes, and might like something that forces you to use a lighter touch.
I also cashed in some ipsy points and got this- Wrap Artist Nail Decals!
I need to get my nails back in serious shape before I use them, but I'm kind of excited about them!
This box was kind of meh for me, the only product I feel like I will definitely repurchase one day is the lip balm, but I really, really like the bag, so that almost makes up for it.
