Here what I got in my March Ipsy bag. It was an interesting mix this month so let see what I got.
The bag is really cute this month! I guess it doesn’t speak well for the contents but this was my favorite part of what I got.
This is the GlamRX case. This is a magnetic case, sort of like the Z-palette. It is a little bigger than a credit card so it is perfect size to put in your purse. I put in the shadows from the Coastal Scents quad I got in Ipsy bag a few month ago. That was a mistake because two of the shadows wouldn’t come out and I mangled them pretty badly. And after all of that they are not even magnetic! I still haven’t figured out what I’m going to put in this.
This is a matte forest green eye shadow. This has decent payoff. I’m not a huge fan of matte eye shadows, the more glitter the better I say, so this doesn’t thrill me. I do find the color interesting and I like that it is a green that doesn’t grey out when blended.
Yes, I did swatch this color on my hand. Look again. So yeah, this is the same color as my skin! Maybe they should have this in foundation size for me. 😉 Anyway this is a good blending color to soften harsh lines but that is about it. I don’t think I could wear this as a lid color as it would show up and I would be afraid to use it as a base color as it might muddy any color I put over it. Maybe I should use it as a concealer. Hmm….
Here is a look I did for St. Patrick’s Day using the two shadows in this bag. Ignore the fact that it looks like I put my eye shadows on with my feet. Anyway I used So Vein on my lid and used Sand Dune to blend out the color in my crease. The liner is the gel liner from MICABeauty I got in last month’s bag and the mascara is Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping mascara in blackest black waterproof. Side note this is my holy grail mascara! I went to a parade yesterday and was outside for about 3 hours and I have to say these shadows didn’t hold up that well. The color was worn away in some spot. I’m sure it would have held up fine if I was inside all day but this is too bright for me to wear this at work.
These are like your standard makeup remover wipe, I didn’t think there was anything special about these. They smell a little like baby whips but I do like how soft they are. I think it did an okay job taking off my foundation but was pretty bad when it came to taking off my eye makeup. I should say that I’m not a huge fan of makeup wipes as I feel like it is a another product, another step, and needless waste to add to the trash.
I wasn’t quite sure what to do with this product when I first open my bag. I didn’t know if this was something to spray on when your skin is feeling dry throughout the day or just a fancy toner. Well, when I went on the Juice Beauty’s website this product is listed as a toner so that is how I use it. This reminded of Lush toners. I don’t feel this does anything special, I don’t feel that my skin is any more hydrated with it than without it. Not crazy about the smell as I don’t like rose scented things.
Overall not that impressed with this bag this month. The products are good just these are not products that I would use in my daily life. Oh well, until next month.
