FEBRUARY IPSY GLAM BAG

Theme:  #ipsyLOVE 
               "Until you find someone or something to give it meaning. This February we're celebrating warm hugs, butterflies in your stomach, a new favorite blush, your best friend's tweets - LOVE in all its wondrous forms and ways to express it"

This is the mailing envelope of Ipsy. You will always get this kind of package every month.

This is the Makeup Bag for the month of February

with the name Ipsy embossed on the handle

WHAT'S INSIDE MY BAG:

1.  Blush Cheek Powder in Cosmopolitan 01 from Model Co

I believe this is a full size product.  Haven't heard about Model Cosmetics but nevertheless can't wait to try on this blush. I absolutely love the color.

2.  Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask by HEY HONEY

This is a 10ml sample. This can be used on all skin types. I'm into face mask lately and i'm excited to try this one.  But unfortunately the sample is too small = (

3.  Large Angled Brush from Luxie

I love love love makeup brushes and having this to add to my collection is so so cool.  I can use this for contouring (because of it being angled it makes you contour easier) you can also definitely use this for highlighting.  I love the pink handle it was cute and the bristles were soft.

4.  Lip Gloss in Anguilla by Cargo Cosmetics

I really didn't like this product. First thing the smell ---- ugh it's so disgusting -- it smelled of strong chemical. Seriously i can't stand the smell of it.  Second the color --- i hated the color period.  Third the texture --- it was sticky and really felt heavy on the lips.  This is one product that would end up on the garbage bin. I wouldn't even give it to my daughter or to a friend. This is such a book !!!

5.  Powder Eyeshadow in Pearl Fizz by 'tini beauty

This is one color that i would definitely use.  This eyeshadow can be used on your lower eyelid or you can even use it to highlight your brows, inner corner of your eyes and even your cheeks.  I love this product and would definitely use it.

VERDICT:  The bag was nice and the products were fantastic except for that lip gloss. If it were not because of it, Ipsy would have been perfect.  A lot of Ipsters has been feeling disappointed of the Ipsy bags for the past few months.  For me, i think for a $10 bag it was worth it.  There might be one or two items i didn't like but i can always give it to my daughter or to a friend who might just want it.  The bags curated in your own beauty profile of which you fill up upon subscription. If in any way you didn't like the items being given to you then try to change your beauty profile by taking the test again. That's what I did. I didn't like the first bag that I got so i went to my account and just changed my beauty profile and whoala the next months bag was perfect.  

RATING:
This would have been a perfect score if it weren't for that lip gloss !!
