Ipsy Glam Bag - February 2015

Ipsy is a monthly subscription priced at $10/month that sends 4-5 products plus a different (mini) makeup bag each month. They also have a referral program where you earn points for referring people to joining. Those points can also be earned for sharing your bag on Facebook and reviewing the products you receive. The nice part is they offer online coupons for most of their monthly items and you can get the coupons for all offered products in all bags that month, just not yours. They have updated the rewards you get for using points and now will offer rewards for 500, 1000, and 1500 points. They still are terrible about updating what is offered and currently, not too much is in stock. Be sure to use your points within a year of earning them, though, because they do expire.

Theme card.


Bag. It was super cute and just the right size. I love that it's pink but it's not too pink on the front. The back, however, is solid hot pink.


CARGO Cosmetics Essential Lip Gloss (Anguilla) ($3.17) - While this isn't a lip color that I would wear on it's own, it's perfect for slightly too dark colors that need to be lightened up. It's not super sticky, which is a nice thing to find out because I've never used CARGO before, and it stays on nicely.

MODELco Blush Cheek Powder (Peach Bellini) ($18.00) - I have to admit, I wasn't expecting to really like this. Most blushes are too dark on me and so I'm really picky about getting them, but this surprised me so much! It's definitely a peach shade and while it is a little darker than I would have liked, it's definitely easy to use lightly!

Composition No. 1 White, Perfume Oil By Joya  ($2.24) - I'm more than ambivalent with perfumes after getting such a great one for Christmas, so this will be given away. It's not a bad perfume, but I don't want to start liking one that is far more expensive than I would like to start spending.


Luxie Rose Gold Large Angled Face Brush 504 ($8.00 sale price/$16.00 full price) - I'm not hugely fond of getting things that appear to be discontinued, but this is a very soft and decent quality brush. For the price, I would expect something a bit more HE. If they weren't so expensive, I would love to have a full set of these in Rose Gold, though!

Robb Scheppy for'Tini Beauty (Pearl Fizz) ($4.94) - I cannot find the single of this, but this shade is available in a gorgeous palette. 'Tini isn't a new brand to me, but it's definitely upped it's quality in my opinion. This shade is the perfect highlight or for a bit of shimmer.


Overall, my bag was worth $36.35, and was definitely a great quality bag for me! I love how everything is super pink and Valentine's-y, which cheered me up so much. If you grabbed Ipsy this month, let me know what you thought about it in the comments!
