It’s time for my monthly Ipsy review! If you’d like to receive a pretty, pink envelope each month, click here! When I saw the sneak peek of the March makeup bag online, I wasn’t too impressed. I’m happy to say that the bag is much cuter in person! “Floral Fantasy” is the theme for March. Bag Contents:
- NYX Cosmetics – Butter Lipstick
- Chella – Ivory Lace Highlighter
- Pixi by Petra – Mesmerizing Mineral Duo
- Skyn ICELAND – Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels
- ACURE – Day Cream
- Smashbox – Photo Finish Foundation Primer
NYX Cosmetics – Butter Lipstick – Pops
When I first opened my bag, I was a little disappointed by the lipstick color I received. This lipstick looks very dull and old lady like. I was pleased to find out that it is much prettier when applied! It’s a nice neutral, rose color.
The formula is also great! It’s very smooth and creamy! Chella – Ivory Lace Highlighter
I don’t really use highlighters, so I don’t have much use for this product.
I will say that it goes on very smooth and seems easy enough to blend.
Pixi by Petra – Mesmerizing Mineral Duo – Apricot Glow
I can’t tell you how excited I was to see this eye shadow in my bag! I always get eyeshadow from Ipsy, but I always end up with the weird purple colors! Gross!!
This month’s shadow palette was very promising!
I really love the lighter, apricot shadow on the left, but I’m not a huge fan of the bronze shadow on the right. Unfortunately, the bronze is too orange for my skin tone.
I still think I’ll get plenty of use out of the apricot shadow though!
Skyn ICELAND – Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels – 2 pairs
I’ve received quite a few eye gels in my subscription boxes lately, so I decided to go ahead and give these a try.
I put them on and let them sit for 10 minutes. Unfortunately, I didn’t notice any results after removing them. I know I have a little bit of bagginess under my eyes, so I’m not quite sure why I didn’t notice any difference.
I’m really glad that Ipsy provided me with two pairs! Hopefully, my second application will prove more fruitful than my first!
This cream has the best light, fruity scent! I love it!
The directions say to apply the cream each morning. I can’t think of anything better than surrounding yourself with this yummy scent to start your day!
BONUS ITEM – Smashbox – Photo Finish Foundation Primer – Pore Minimizing
I finally earned enough IpsyPoints to get a reward! I’ve been holding out for a good one, and I was super excited to snag one from Smashbox!
I love Benefit’s The POREfessional, and this primer is just like it. Since I already have a full-sized POREfessional, I’ll be packing this sample the next time I go on a trip.
Just when I was starting to give up on Ipsy, they curated a pretty good bag!
What do you think of the March Ipsy bag?!
