March: my whole bag was perfect, but I think I loved the marvelous moxie lipstick the best

Ok here are my faves from each month! 

 

January: Benefit Porefessional, although I wasn't wowed by anything this month!

 

February: Zoya Nail Polish in Dot (Love me some zoya!), City Color be matte blush (I have been using this a ton and love it!) Tini Beauty (I wasn't over the moon about this when the bag arrived but I just recently used it and it's beautiful. I got the purple one) 

 

March: Chella eyeliner (My first one dried up but chella sent me a new one and while it's not my favorite eyeliner ever, it's decent) pixi beauty flawless beauty primer (I love how luminous this makes my dry skin) bare mineral marvelous moxie lipstick in get ready (not the best color on me, but i love the formula) 

 

April: Elizabeth Mott eyeshadow (nice formula and while it's not super unique to my collection, it will get used), UD eyeliner (while the one I got in my bag was dry and flaky, they are sending me a replacement and I have high hopes for this, and am thinking I just got a defective one)

I have loved  

  • City Color be matte blush (bought several more)  
  • BaB Bora Bora quad
  • Elizabeth Mott single shadow 
  • Sexy Hair beach spray (never would've bought this on my own)
  • Chella highlighter pencil
  • Mirabella Colour Sheers lipstick
  • Pacifica Roll-on perfume
  • BaB Blush 

Not just for those individual items, but for most of these brands I've purchased other things since finding the brands in Ipsy. This goes back further than 2014, obviously!

I love the city color highlighter, and the be matte blush in fresh melon. At such a low price point, I've been VERY impressed so far.

 

Love zoya.

 

The starlooks pencil in the pretty lilac shimmery shade. I can't remember the name.

 

Email waterliner in turquoise was nice.

By month:

  • January... Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm by a landslide.
  • February... Zoya Odette was the best of what actually came in my bag, but the City Color Be Matte Blush that I ordered is my official winner.
  • March... pleasantly surprised by the bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick, and also really liked the Klari Reis bag pattern.
  • April... was expecting the Urban Decay liner to triumph over all, but wound up in love with the City Color White Gold.

Surprised to find that a cheapie-cheap brand is dominating my favorites so far, so much so that I'm actually expecting a decent-sized City Color haul to arrive tomorrow (went a little nuts when they offered free shipping on Earth Day).

 

Honorable mention goes to the TokyoMilk Dark Lip Elixir that I ordered after a discussion of them in one of the Ipsy forums (March, I think). I am officially addicted to the Salted Caramel, and have gotten several other people hooked as well.

The Bab blush, which I used constantly, until it broke during a trip :(

I loved the NYX lipsticks, so much I've continued buying more from the brand often. They don't sell that brand in my state.

The Chella Indigo Eyeliner.

The EM mascara.

Michael Todd scrub

For 2014 to date...

 

Jan - Porefessional (tiny but lasts forever) and M&G mojito lip balm. One item I didn't get in my bag but bought and LOVE is the Faith Aromatherapy Tahitian Monoi Scrub. Great discount code with that one.

Feb - Zoya Odette - pretty colour and lovely formula, as always.

March - Bare Minerals Marvellous Moxie lipstick. Colour is nice, great scent, and feels great on.

April - Demeter jasmine roll-on. I finally got Demeter in my bag and was not disappointed! I had been very excited for the UD liner but it flakes horribly...

Jan: The Briogeo conditioning hair mask, which I was originally unhappy about getting, but ended up loving it once I tried it.

 

Feb: City color Matte blush in melon, I wear it daily!

 

Mar: Pacifica Indian coconut nectar body butter, I just finished it and bought the large size!

 

Apr: Elizabeth Mott Pop! goes the eyeshadow.

 

I have now been with ipsy a full year, and so far I have discovered at least one awesome item every month, even if I originally hated my bag when it showed up in my glam room. Which reminds me why I signed up for ipsy in the first place, to discover new things!

I'm unsubbed now, but the only things I got in 2014 that really stand out in my mind are the Malin & Goetz Mojito lip balm and the Be a Bombshell shadow quad (because the colors are SO PRETTY).

I love this thread, I actually keep a spreadsheet myself of my most used Ipsy items which are the items I love.  Here's my list from the past year:

 

Mirabella lipstick (May 2013) - I bought 3 more colors after getting it in my Ipsy bag.

Jessie's Girl Liquid Eyeliner (September 2013) - I almost used this up and recently stopped using it because the tip is frayed.  I liked it enough but it does smear in the outer corners of my eyes.  It was a good Ipsy find though but I had to trade to get it.

Pixi Bronzer in Subtly Sun Touched (November 2013) - LOVE!  Best Ipsy find of all.

Pixi Bronzer in Summertime (November 2013) - Like this too, luckily I was getting 2 bags for a while and was able to receive both bronzer shades.

NYX Lipstick (December 2013) - I received the shade Fiesta and love it.

Be Delectable Hand Cream in Vanilla (October 2013) - so yummy, I also traded for the Lemon and Coconut scents,

Demeter Salt Air Perfume (July 2013) - So beachy!  :wub:

And finally... (Saved this for last because no one will believe it's serious, but it is!) J Cat Lipstick in Honeycrisp (September 2013) - Personally I love the color!  

 

 

I also love these items that Ipsy sent out but I didn't get.  However, I already own and use them so wanted to throw them out there since they are tried and true for me:

Benefit Porefessional

Benefit Lollitinit

Butter London polish

Pacific Indian Coconut Nectar Body Butter

    • Hey! I'm 28 years old and I've NEVER been able to find makeup that works for me. Foundation is my downfall. I put it on and it somehow goes all patchy and funny coloured on my skin. I've tried mousse type, liquid and powder. I just always look ridiculous so I never wear it. (I have oily skin in parts and large pores)   Does anyone else have this problem? Any advice? Foundations to try? Am I supposed to use something under the foundation? I'm a total beginner!
    • If you are familiar with Peltor headsets, you have probably been initiated to a world of quality and great value. Probably one of the most popular Peltor products is its line of excellent headsets. When it comes to the best sounding headsets, Peltor is the name that you can definitely trust. Take the Peltor HTB79A-02 Listen-Only headset for instance. Among many Peltor headsets that wowed audiophiles of various shapes and sizes, the Peltor HTB79A-02 is no doubt one of the most popular. It combines all the great qualities that customers look for in headsets.  As you read on, you will understand why Peltor headsets are hailed by critics as the best in the market today.   Peltor Headsets Features   Compared to ordinary headphones, Peltor headsets, like other high-tech ear muffs, are equipped with extraordinary hearing protection mechanism. In fact, by testing the Peltor HTB79A-02 Listen-Only headset, you will instantly understand why a lot of sonic freaks love this particular model. But even if you are not a technical sound geek, the Peltor HTB79A-02, like all Peltor headsets, can be easily appreciated. The Peltor HTB79A-02 is designed to isolate unwanted noise while listening to various types of media. Whether you will be using it with your old school listening equipment or any modern media player formats, its 25db noise isolation mechanism ensures that every listening experience is worthwhile. A lot of Peltor headsets are designed to shutdown unnecessary noise and hiss but the Peltor HTB79A-02 sure stands out when it comes to making any audio track ring out with pristine quality and unbelievable quality, more information about hearing protection you can read on Mentoolbox.com. Unlike other brands such as Koss, Philips, Skullcandy, and even Bose, Peltor headsets cancel unwanted sonic impurities without diminishing the overall dynamics of an audio track. This means that Peltor headsets are especially designed and manufactured to retain the nuances of any recording.  Now, some of you may complain that this particular model, unlike past Peltor headsets, is not that loud enough. Of course it is. The Peltor HTB79A-02 is made this way on purpose. Most Peltor headsets are designed to produce sounds exceeding 85db but the Peltor HTB79A-02 Listen-Only headset is different. This headset is designed for a more, well, quieter listening experience. Compared to other headset brands and models, the Peltor HTB79A-02 is designed to prevent deadening your aural faculties. This means that even if you listen to loud music with Peltor headsets for many hours, you will not experience any displeasure in your eardrums. Apart from these unique features, the HTB79A-02, like all Peltor headsets are built to last for many years. The manufacturers use only the most durable materials so that you can enjoy noise-free aural pleasure for a longer time.
