Hello Y’all!

It’s Ipsy Time!

Let’s chat about the bag. It’s cute. Pink for Valentine’s Day. They grey sweet accents against the hot pink. I’m more of a fan of the bags with the zipper on the top, but hey, it’s still adorable!

It’s all about the products, right? Overall, I like the selection.

First item! Emite Eyelash CurlerI’ve been using an eyelash curler for over 20 years. Every time I put on makeup. Currently, I’ve been using my elf curler. I was stoked to find out that I was getting this. I really like it. It came with 3 replacement cushions. Its bent to not disturb you foundation. This sounds like a gimmick. I can tell you that countless times I have put curler dents in my cheeks. Partially because I’m lazy and I’ve got big cheeks. This retails for $25. This alone, though covered the cost of this month’s bag.

Here’s what they say:

Our Professional Eye Lash curler has a special curved design which angles to suit all eye shapes, without touching your makeup base. Its silicone rubber pad applies the appropriate amount of pressure to curl lashes naturally. Your eye lashes will remain in perfect shape all day.

Second item. Model Co Blush in Cosmopolitan.  The color is a sheer barbie pink. The formula is soooo soft! It’s not chalky at all. Provides a sweet healthy pink flush. I like it. I really appreciate the lack of shimmer/sparkles. Retail for full size $22.

Here’s what they say on the site:

ModelCo’s BLUSH Cheek Powder creates a beaming, rosy glow to brighten every complexion. The micronized colour pigments and luxurious, pressed powder delivers a sheer, natural radiance that lasts all day.

Third Item. eva-nyc Up All Night Volumizing SprayHrmmm. I tried this yesterday when I blow dried my hair. It didn’t blow me away. (I’m punny!) I’ll try it again. Maybe I need to use more. I’m always apply conservatory when trying a new hair product. I have fine hair and hate rewashing when I’ve done something stooped like putting too much stuff in my hair. It smells warm and clean. Didn’t notice any scent after styling. Which it great! Full size is $24.

Here’s what the site says:

Get the ultimate blowout with this multi-tasking spray! The light-weight formula adds volume and texture to hair, while protecting against heat for healthier styling.

How to use:  Apply to damp hair before blow drying for added texture and lift, or use on dry hair as a revitalizing spray.

Fourth item. Mitchell and Peach Fine Radiance Face Oil. I wanted to LOVE this. And I partially do.  I really like how it makes my skin feel. The morning after my skin is a little plumper, a little more glowy and happier  You know what I’m going to say…. The scent. For me it’s too much. I know it’s a running theme for me. I was born with a uber sensitive nose. (For example, I’ve told The Boyfriend what he had for lunch when he gets home at 7pm. It’s a blessing and curse.) I’ll use this when my olfactory system isn’t turned up to eleven. Full size is about $46.

Here’s what the site says:

A highly effective face oil packed with powerful natural anti-oxidants and vitamins that are instantly absorbed to leave skin feeling plumper, firmer and glowing with radiance.

The unique formulation, which has a luxuriously powdery feel, contains cobnut oil from the Mitchell farming estate. The oil is mildly astringent (producing a tightening effect) and brimming with Vitamin E, known for its anti-oxidant properties, as well as Vitamin B, which evens skin tone.

Other ingredients include vitamin-rich apricot kernel oil, coconut oil and wheat germ oil to protect against oxidative stress.

The Fine Radiance Face Oil is delicately fragranced with Mitchell and Peach’s Flora No.1 fragrance, a blend of uplifting floral essences including rose, lavender and ylang-ylang

Fifth item. Color City Creamy Lip Stain in Flirtini. This color on my is a slight tint, a sheer wash of color.. I have dark lips. The formula to me is thin and lightweight. It’s supposed to be matte. It never gets there completely on me. There is a distinct flavor. Like maybe roses. I’m getting use to it and it fades after wearing. All the shades beside Flirtini are sold out at the moment! Retails for $4.99

Here’s what the site says:

A hybrid between a lipstick and gloss, City Color Creamy Lip Stain gives your lips true, bold color that won’t quit! Applies thick and creamy with a glossy shine and sets with a lightweight, matte stain that doesn’t dry out. Available in 6 fun and flirty shades.

So there you have it! February’s Ipsy Bag.  Some fun and useful stuff for $10.
