I am so happy with this month's products in my tipsy bag, but I am not thrilled with the bag itself. Ipsy is teaming up with artists to do an Artist Series of bags. Though the quality of the bag is good, I do not love the print. The lining is a very pretty blue though. If you are interested in Ipsy go here.
The first thing in my bag was a full size Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer valued at $9.00. This is a very light feeling product and it dried without feeling oily. The primer has a shimmery finish, as you can see in the swatch picture above the shimmer is subtle and I think under a foundation it would look perfect.
The next product was a mini 0.05oz bareMinerals Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready, the full size is 0.12oz valued at $18.00. This lipstick feels super moisturizing and the color is great.
Next Ipsy included this full size Chella Liquid Eyeliner in Indigo Blue valued at $24. I am torn about this eyeliner, the pigmentation and applicator are fantastic, but I don't see me using this because of the color. Therefore I have spritzed the tip with rubbing alcohol to sanitize it and this will be one of the products in the giveaway.
The last item in the Ipsy bag was a full size NYX Love in Rio eyeshadow trio in No Tan Lines Allowed valued at $6. This is a pretty good palette, the colors are great neutrals but the color payout is not the best. I did use my fingers and I think I can get better pay out by using a brush. I will be purchasing one of these to giveaway too.

I am sorry this post is so belated, I promise next month will be much more prompt!
Maybelline- Baby Skin: At first I didn't love this primer, because though it fills in pores it caused problems with applying my powder foundation. The powder would clump up and not go on properly. However I have given this a try under my Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse. The combination makes my skin look flawless. I will trying this under some other liquid foundations in the future.
Lush- Godiva Shampoo Bar: The is an solid shampoo bar that smells like gardenias. I love how this cleans my hair and the smell is amazing.
Etude House- AC Clinic Foaming Face Cleanser: This is my all time favorite face cleanser. I use this every 2-3 days and use St. Ives Apricot Scrub for Blemish Control on the other days. This smells like Teatree and sage and it does a great just of deep cleaning my face.
Missha- Jewel Star Eyes in Pink Champagne: This is a cream shadow but it does not have a lot of pigment. I love to use this to add a little sparkle to a neutral eye look.
L'oreal- Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush: I love this because I can just toss it on my lid for a quick and easy everyday look or I can blend it with a gold eyeshadow for a more dramatic look.
Yankee Candle- Pure Radiance in Stargaze: This is a wonderful candle in a delicious amber musk. I love this candle while I'm in the bath, the scent is so relaxing.

I bought several awesome things from LUSH and I was so excited for them to get here. The products are listed on my Luvocracy Lush Collection.
I did experience one disappointment, which was the Soak and Float Shampoo bar. The smell was so overwhelming that I have asked Lush for an exchange. When I talked to the representative from Lush she was super nice and helpful but she said the smell of the Soak and Float is always a love/hate for people. So my recommendation is to hold off unless you can go into the store and smell it first. I would say that it smells like a pungent campfire, with something else bitter involved. The Soak and Float is supposed to be helpful for dandruff and dry scalp, which I was excited to try because I have mild dandruff. I will be exchanging the Soak and Float for either a new Godiva Shampoo or the Seanik Shampoo.
I also ordered the Sex Bomb bath bomb. This smells very good, floral and musky. I used this when I wasn't feeling well and wanted to have an extra relaxing bath. This was fantastic and it made my skin feel very silky. This also has a little rice paper flower inside that was super cute to see absorb the water. As you can see above, this turned my water a pretty pink. The only downside for me was the residue this left on my tub, I don't think it will be hard to get off, but it does mean a little extra work. I will definitely be ordering this again.
The Rock Star soap was the bonus sample that came with my Lush order. I like the smell, but haven't used it yet so I will update this when I do. This smells like bubble-gum which I like, but it might get on my nerves eventually. Also the size I received is a sample size.
Bathos the bubble bar, I am super excited to try this. One I love bubbles and two this smells like fresh flowers and spring. I also think I will be able to get more than one bath with this bubble bar. I hope that the bubbles are a little purple.
The Dragon's Egg is a citrus scented bath bomb. I have not tried this yet but I have hear it has glitter inside which I am very excited for!
The last thing I bought was the Ultimate Shine Shampoo Bar. Now, first I have to say I would never have thought I would love bar shampoo but after having the Godiva Shampoo Bar, I really don't know if I will go back to liquid shampoo any time soon. This shampoo is so easy to use, you can either lather it up in your hands and put your hand through your hair or you can rub the bar on your head. I love this so much. This one lathers a little better than my Godiva Bar did. I also love the smell but I have no clue how to describe it, it is a very refreshing smell though. I don't know if this is helping with shine yet but it made my hair feel super clean and fresh. I will definitely order this again.
As you can see I also bought the shampoo bar tin. I bought this because when you get to the end of a shampoo bar it is small and hard to keep track of so I wanted to get a container for it.
I would also like to say that the Shampoo Bars last a while I have had my Godiva bar from Early January and it is now the start of March and I still have enough for a few more washes. I have very thick hair that I was every 2-3 days. So I would say that is at least 25-35 washes from one bar.
Overall I am happy with my Lush order and the customer service with Lush is amazing!
