February 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

My first subscription box was from Ipsy. I was a bit skeptical about a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box because I didn't want to end up with a bunch of products I couldn't use or didn't know how to use. Each month you get full size or deluxe-sized products in a cute makeup bag, and I was sold after checking out their previous bags. If you're not very adventurous with makeup like me, it's a great way to build your makeup collection on the cheap and expand your makeup expertise!

The February Ipsy Glam Bag was full of awesome swag perfect for those that love PINK! First let me talk about the cute bag. I was so excited to open the bright pink envelope that arrived in the mail, only to get even MORE excited to see the super cool makeup bag my new samples were in.  

In my bag:

It Cosmetics concealer

Skin fix ultra rich body butter
Bellá Pierre blush
Ciaté nail polish
Vintage cosmetics gloss

NONE of which I have used before but always wanted to try. I was glad that Ipsy sent things that I could use and yes, I now use MOST of these items.  I wasn't a fan of the lipgloss from Vintage cosmetics because it was too sticky and way too sparkly. My six year old daughter on the other hand...LOVED IT!


Check out my fresh mani thanks to my Ciaté sample. I LOVE IT and I hope you do too!

I rate the February Ipsy Glam Bag 4/5!

More about the products inside:

It Cosmetics concealer- I absolutely love this concealer. I have never purchased concealer before so it was a nice treat to get this in my Glam Bag. It felt very smooth on my skin and didn't flake or crack under my tinted moisturizer. I now use this all the time!

Skin fix ultra rich body butter- This was another product that I never heard of. It loved the texture and it absorbed well into my skin. It's the perfect product to keep in my purse for when I need a quick moisture fix. 

Bellá Pierre blush- LOVE LOVE LOVE. This blush went on and stayed put all day. It felt luxurious and complimented my skin perfectly. 

Ciaté nail polish- I confess, I never purchased a Ciaté product before, but after this sweeeeeet sample, I'm hooked!!! I have serious Olivia Pope envy and this colour was just killer! It was a very creamy polish that went on very nicely. It wasn't very long lasting and I noticed I had to reapply after just three days, even though I used an Essie Gel Top Coat. 

Vintage cosmetics gloss- My least favourite product. I didn't like how it made my lips stick together and the shimmer was waaaaayyyyy too much for my tastes. I would not buy this product in store and do not recommend this gloss to those that prefer subtle shine.

My First Time using Melixir face oil

This year, my skin has been on its best behaviour. I'm not entirely sure if it's because I've been paying more attention to wha...
