January 2016 Ipsy Bag

10:14 PM 25 Comments A+ a-

It's that time of the month. Another IPSY unveiling.  For those who don't know, Ipsy is a beauty subscription service created by youtube sensation Michelle Phan. For $10 a month, you will receive a makeup bag containing 4-5 deluxe beauty samples. Each month varies, but its always worth way more than the $10 you paid for. The theme for January 2016 was called "All Eyes On You". I thought it was a cute concept and 4 out of 5 of my products were for my eyes. The products that I received were theBalm Cosmetics Mr.Write (Now) eyeliner, Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Curl, Hikari Cosmetics Cream Metallic Shadow Pigments, Pur~lisse Blue LOTUS 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum and Lasting Smiles Lip Balm in Peppermint Crème.

 
The bag is definitely something different and something that I don't own. I love the 60's pop art vibe that its giving off and I love how it goes with the theme of the month.


 theBalm Cosmetics Mr.Write (Now) eyeliner :
These pencils deliver the long-lasting color you've been looking for, and have built-in sharpeners so they are always ready when you are. With high payoff and a satin smooth texture, these are perfect for any day of the week.  This was a full size product and the color I received was Jac which is a very rich bronze color. Since, it is a bronze shade, its not too dramatic on the eyes and it does last all day for me.

 
Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Curl Mascara :
Fairy Lashes CURL is a sculpting mascara that continually curls lashes throughout the day with a unique synthesis of Moringa Seed resin that holds the curl of lashes for long-lasting results. This mascara creates dramatic volume and intense definition, while allowing eyelashes to remain spectacularly soft and light at the same time. This is a fullsized, waterproof mascara and is fragrance-free. I still haven't tried this out yet, but I'll update this once I do.


Hikari Cosmetics Cream Metallic Shadow Pigments :
This cream-to-powder eyeshadow has a super lightweight feel and goes on extra smooth. This was another full sized product and the shade I received was Mink. In the container it looks like another bronze shade, but when swatched it's totally different. When you first swatch touch it's so pigmented on your finger, but once swatched the color fades away but the shimmer is def there. I was quite disappointed to see that. I think this could be used more as a highlight. As of now, I'm not really sure I like this product.


Pur~lisse Blue LOTUS 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum :
Blue Lotus eye serum is enhanced with active ingredients like French marine plants, Matrixyl 3000 and Haloxyl that bring 4 times the power against aging. This formula works together to fight against wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness, while hydrating and lifting the delicate eye area. This is a sample size and perfect for traveling. I've used it for 2 days. Not much of a difference yet, but I'm gonna keep trying it out.



Lasting Smiles Lip Balm in Peppermint Crème :
Lasting Smiles® lip balms are organic and fairtrade certified with pure and moisturizing ingredients sourced from small scale global farming cooperatives. With coconut oil, shea, and cocoa butter for soft hydrated and healthy lips. Smile for a Cause®  For every 1,000 lip balms sold one cleft lip surgery is funded --- transforming a child's life forever! I love how this funds a great cause and it smells like peppermint.

Ipsy has really been stepping up their game! I saw a lot of Ipsy reviews last year that weren't too great, but this looks awesome! I think the mascara name is super cute!
Thanks for sharing :)

I've been debating on subscribing to Ipsy for a while now. This looks pretty cool and it's making me lean more towards actually going for it. Those eyeliners look really nice! Looks like you got tons of nice stuff!

Thanks for sharing your Ipsy goodies with us; I'm glad you loved your products! I've yet to try it out, I guess I gotta get going on it because for just $10 and you get full sized items, not bad at all! I hope you're having a wonderful start to your week so far :)
