First look!




I am so in love with this bag. I saw it on the previews for the month so I knew what was coming, but it's so cool and I love anything 8-bit!


Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil (~$5.00) - I absolutely love primers from Smashbox, but this just feels like a fail. Once this dries, it works a little bit better, but it did feel like it took some time to actually dry. I'm not one for oils on my face, but maybe it's for someone!

Perfectly Posh Best Face Forever ($5.25) - This just felt out of place for me. I understand that it's a good exfoliater and all, but why is Perfectly Posh in an Ipsy bag? I feel like MLM products are so easy to sample, I would have appreciated another exfoliant in my bag.


Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind Sparkling Lip Gloss (Pink Sequin) ($7.00) - I could have sworn that I heard of the brand before, and I was right! I tried out the highlighter from the Ipsy bag last March, and it's so cool that the color of the lip gloss is super close to the color of the highlighter. The lip gloss feels nice and the color is good. It's not a super pigmented gloss, but it does as a nice shimmer!

Paula Dorf Eyeliner (Baby Eyes Enhancer) ($9.00) - This is a really awesome eyeliner that's perfect for giving you bigger/wider eyes. It's a very light pink/nearly cream liner that applies so smoothly and looks very nice on. It's not something that everyone would want to use, but it's perfect for me!

Luxie Beauty Flat Definer Brush ($12.00) - I am so in love with Luxie brushes. I have tried them out twice before, in February last year and one of my bags from May! They last for a while without fallout and or not giving up the powder once they have it! I love that this definer brush makes nice, even lines for super intense looks. I'm going to use it to make a line and then blend it out. The rose gold/pink handle is all amazing extra!


I think February's bag did a great job at showcasing a few new products, and it was valued at $38.25. It is feeling a bit repetitive with the same brands over and over, but at least these were almost a year apart and they were good brands! My favorite product is definitely the brush, mostly because I am one more brush towards having a full set of rose gold brushes, but the bag is my favorite thing of the month!

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