I got my Glam Bag a few days ago, and I've gotten to play with the products a bit so I can tell you how I feel about them now! For anyone reading this who doesn't know what Ipsy is, it's a monthly beauty subscription service that send you 4-5 deluxe sample size and full size products each month and a makeup bag for only 10$! That's right. TEN DOLLARS. If you'd like to get started with your own Ipsy subscription, just click here or click the link in the right side bar.
This month's bag was super adorable. Since it was February, Ipsy went for a Valentine's Day theme. The card on the inside said "The Look of Love." The bag, itself, was hot pink on the outside with a plain white zipper. On the inside, it had pink leopard print. Super cute!
The first product I pulled from my bag this month was the POP Beauty Plump Pout Lipgloss Mini. I got it in the shade Fuschia Freesia, which is a really gorgeous, crazy bright pink. It is definitely fuschia. The gloss is really thick and opaque, which I love. Color wise, this was a great choice for me. Out of all the colors that they offer, this one and the nude color stand out to me the most. The only complaint I have about this gloss, is the smell. The handle is rubberized, so it stinks like rubber.
The next thing I gravitated towards were the lashes. February's bag featured JCat Beauty once again with their Eyelashes + Eyelash Glue. I received them in the style EL 20. These are pretty dramatic. They're nice and full and they taper in just barely in the inner corner. These are made with real human hair, are hypoallergenic, and cruelty free.
Next up is another nail polish. Yay! I love nail polish. You guys know that. Ipsy sent out another Zoya, which I am not complaining about. Zoya polishes always have a great formula and the bottle is really cute. I got the color Dot, a soft pale pink. I like the color, but I really wanted the other color, Odette, because it is a lot darker. I think Dot is too pale for my skintone to wear on its own.
I also got the EyeTini Cordial Cream Shadow + Base In One, which looks like lipgloss haha. It has a doe foot applicator and that's how you apply the cream shadow. It has an odd smell, but it isn't unpleasant. The color is Violette. It's a shimmery lavender color. I would have rather had one of the other two colors they sent out, but I will def get some use out of this. I swatched it about 36 hours ago, and you can still see some color and shimmer on the back of my hand. That's quality!
My last item is the Skyn Iceland Fresh Start Mask. I love skincare, especially face masks and scrubs, so this was a great choice for me. At first I thought I got 2 packs of the mask, but it turns out that one half is the mask and the other is an activating gel. I haven't used this one yet, but the reviews I've seen of it say its really amazing. It's just expensive! But since you're only supposed to do it once a week, it really isn't that expensive.

Overall, I really liked this month's bag. I'm glad it was Valentine's Day themed without getting too out of hand with the pink, haha.
