This month is all about your Alter Ego!


I actually think this bag is cute. I love the gold on the front and the back is black, which is super cute!


Coastal Scents Xpress Line (Black) ($2.95) - This would not be a liner I would use, for any reason. It's a pencil but it's very dry and takes a bit of work to apply. It's not the smoothest application and it comes off very easily, not worth the money.

Meet Matt(e) Hughes (Committed) ($2.72) - I really love this color. It's a bit darker than my natural lip color, but not so much that it looks weird. It applies super smooth and dries quickly to a matte finish, but without feeling tight on your lips. To make it even better, it's a vanilla/mint scent, so it smells slightly sweet and makes your lips tingle just the slightest bit! Will buy again, definitely want a couple of other colors as well.

MICA Beauty Cream Eye Shadow (Bronze) ($14.95) - This is a super gorgeous bronze shimmer cream eye shadow. I love that it's a full size product, so there's plenty for me to use. I'm looking forward to using it in combination with tons of shadows to make some new looks.


Ayres Hand Cream (Pampas Sunrise) ($6.25) -  Wonderful formula, a great lightweight hand cream that doesn't feel super greasy or heavy. Absolutely terrible smell. Seriously, would not use again. It's too overwhelming and powerful of a smell.

Avene Soothing Moisture Mask ($2.46) - Thankfully, this just has a fresh scent. It feels moisturizing and even with a little tube, it will last a while. It's for sensitive skin, which is always nice because I have the fear that one of these things will break me out!


This bag is valued at 29.33, which is pretty nice for an Ipsy. Even with the two products that I'll never use, I still got my value out of this bag. I ended up getting a product I've been interested in trying and got a great eye shadow to go along with it! With this bag I also received a brush I redeemed points for, so that was a nice extra!

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
