February Ipsy Glambag – Worth the Price?

February has come and gone so fast that I didn’t even realize that it’s March already. This month was packed with goodies, some good, some bad, and some in between. Ipsy however, came out punching and I am glad that they once again knocked it out of the park.

If you don’t know Ipsy is a $10 a month subscription service, created by Michelle Phan. Each month you will receive a different lovely glam bag and four to five deluxe or sample size (maybe even a full-size) products. Curated to you, by a beauty quiz you take.

 The theme for February was Much Love….

The bag was this beautiful jean like material with bright neon orange lining that I for one was in love with. It was something different from the normal Valentine’s day stuff.

For the month of February, I received a full-size NYX Professional Makeup Butter Lipstick in Ripe Berry, a trial-size Briogeo Rosarco Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Creme, a full-size Hikari Cosmetics Cream Pigment Eye Shadow in Latte, a trial-size Seraphine Botanicals Luminude in Primrose, and a full-size Luxie Beauty Luxie Rose Gold Blush Brush 514. 

The Products:

NYX Professional Makeup Butter Lipstick in Ripe Berry

NYX Butter Lipstick’s unique texture seems to melt onto the lips, giving full, yet lightweight coverage with a luxurious satin finish.

I love the NYX Butter Lipstick formula, and this shade performed no differently. The color was bright and pigmented. It lasted for about 3 to 4 hours (on me) without needing to touch up. All round it was a perfect shade/product choice for me.

WINNER!


Briogeo Rosarco Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Creme

A weightless finishing formula infused with a nourishing blend of rosehip, argan, and coconut oils to smooth hair, enhance shin, tame frizz, and heat protect against damage up to 425 degrees F. Algae extract and panthenol strengthen hair and help prevent split ends caused by heat styling.

I have received this product before, in a full-size, and I quite liked it. One of my favorite deep conditioners is made from this brand. It does hurt to have more. 

WINNER-ISH!? 


Hikari Cosmetics Cream Pigment Eye Shadow in Latte

Our Cream Eye Pigments come in an assortment of colors and can be used to create definition as a base or use subtlety to add highlights to the eye.  Apply to eye with fingertip or brush and blend in. These highly pigmented cream shadows are sure to add a statement to your look!

Love this eyeshadow.  It’s pigmented, blendable, and long-lasting.  I wish I had more in different colors.

WINNER!

Seraphine Botanicals Luminude in Primrose

A soft-touch skin luminizer made from cold-pressed Evening Primrose Oil that gives a youthful brilliance and glow to your complexion.

I tried this two ways. The first way was by mixing it with my foundation,  and I loved it. It gave a dewy look to the finish look. The second way was buy using it as a highlighter and just like the first, I greatly enjoyed how it turned out. On my skin tone, it gave a more glow from within look.

WINNER!

Luxie Beauty Luxie Rose Gold Blush Brush 514

Imitate the perfect glow on your cheeks with this Luxie blush brush. Made with cruelty-free synthetic bristles, this vegan brush achieves beauty inside and out. Fake a healthy flush with this must-have product in your beauty arsenal.

I have multiples of this brush that I received from different subscription boxes/bags. I use them for highlighting and contouring and they work perfectly for both. I absolutely adore Luxie Brushes.

OVERALL

Is the February bag worth the $10 price tag? Yes, I believe so. I didn’t have any problems with the products I received. None of them were a bust, they were all winners in my book. If I had to nick pick, the only one I was so-so on was the Briogeo Rosarco Protectant Cream and that is only because the sample-size is too small to really do anything for my hair more than maybe 2, if that. But, overall I loved everything I received this month. And, I cannot wait until I receive the March glambag.
