Ipsy Bag: February 2015


Ipsy bag is back! Sorry for missing January but with the move there was a shipping mishap. So lets get started!

Demeter Fragrance Library: First Love Roll On Perfume (.29oz - $10.00)

To me this perfume smells nice but a little too sweet, and I think perfumes that smell very sweet either smell cheap or like a young teenager, which just doesn't fit me. I will probably pass it on, if one of my friends likes it. The website says that has notes of lemon zest, jasmine, honeysuckle, water lotus and white rose.

Mitchell and Peach: Fine Radiance Face Oil in Flora no. 1 (10ml, Full Size 20ml - $46.19)

So this is supposed to make your skin feel "plumper, firmer and glowing with radiance." I have oily skin so putting oil on my face seems counter-intuitive. This does smell pleasant. I was sort of interested in trying this, but one of the main ingredients wheat germ oil. A quick glance at the internet provides very conflicting answers about whether wheat germ oil is problematic for someone with celiac or gluten intolerance. So again I think I will pass this on.

City Color Cosmetics: Creamy Lip Stain in Flirtini ($4.99)

This is probably my favorite product this month. This feels lovely on the lips, little moisturizing, not sticky, and dries matte. I have not tested the longevity yet. The color is pretty and could easily be worn as an everyday color. 

Model Co. Blush Cheek Powder in Peach Bellini ($22)

This was a nice product to, it applied smoothly and with a decent amount of pigment. For the swatch above keep in mind my hands are darker than my face. That being said I don't think this would be a great blush on me, its very shiny and a little too orange for my complexion. Though it is a pretty color and I might keep it to use as eyeshadow.

Rob Scheppy for 'Tini Beauty Powder Shadow in Pearl Fizz ($12)

Again I like this product but I don't love the color. Its a shame because it is not the colors fault, I'm just tired of always getting champagne type colors from Ipsy. This was velvety and swatched very nicely, but I just have so many champagne eyeshadows. 

Overall I think Ipsy totally brought the value this month with about $73 in products for $10. The bag was a cute and festive print but not memorable. I'm feeling a little burnt out by the eyeshadow colors from Ipsy, in a year I have only received on non-neutral champagne-like color.

What did you get from Ipsy this month? I'm considering dropping Ipsy for a little while, but I'm scared that the month I drop it they be throwing in Urban Decay or Tarte again. Do you think its worth it?

Bests, Cittie
