I'm extremely happy with my bag this month! I think I added the value up to be a total of $90 but my math could be wrong somewhere. 

 

Tarte Cosmetics LipSurgence ($12) - I had no intense opinion of which I got out of the three previewed. I've never tried Tarte lip products but there are other things from this brand that I like. I'm looking forward to testing it out.

 

Adese New York Nail Polish ($18) - This is a super pretty color! I'm really happy that Ipsy finally started sending me nail polish on a regular basis. 

 

Trust Fund Beauty Highlighter ($20) - I finally get a Trust Fund item and it's not nail polish. After months of crossing my fingers for a Trust Fund polish. I'm on a highlighter kick though so this is good. I like that it's a stick. It'll be good for travel. 

 

purlisse Beauty Sheet Masks ($16) - I enjoy sheet masks and these sound interesting. I wish they were fragrance free though. If it's going on my face it doesn't need to be fragrant.

 

Luxie Beauty Highlighter Brush ($24) - This was the one thing I really wanted! I don't have a highlighter brush and this one looks nice. I couldn't find this brush by itself so to figure out a price point for it I compared it to the Rose Gold Highlighter Brush. They look the same I think the handle is just a different color.

Ugh.  I stil have three bags since I didn't realize that you have to respond to the cancelation email or they don't actually cancel your account.  That wouldn't be so bad, but al three of my bags are pretty much the same.  This is what I'm getting:

 

Tarte LipSurgence X 3

LAB Blending Brush X 3

Ofra Eyeshadow X 3

Probelle Nail Polish in purple X 3

Skin & Co. Truffle Serum X 2

Harvey Prince Hair Mask X 1

 

I will have enough purple nail polish to paint my front door.  With all the items they had available this month and with how different my profiles are, I'm sort of surprised they ended up so similar.

I'm pretty pleased with my bag this month also. I got:

 

- Tarte LipSurgence ($12) - This was my pick out of the 3 initial items and I'll get pretty good use out of it.

 

- Crown C427 Duo Fibre Brush - I am actually really pleased with this item. My Crown brushes are the best quality brushes I own and it's a very practical face brush, of which I don't have many. I'm seeing various prices online from $7 - $35 so I'm going to average it at $20.

 

- City Color Highlight Trio ($9) - The packaging is boring but the product is lovely. The swatches on the Ipsy instagram were so pretty and it's like getting 3 highlighters instead of one.

 

Adese New York Nail Polish ($18) - I have been wanting a lilac nail polish for the longest while so this is perfect

 

- Morrocan Oil Hair Treatment (based on the cost of their .85 oz, the value of this sample is about $6) - I'm actually okay with this as this is the original Morrocan oil product and a little goes a long way. Not exciting but definitely useful.

 

Overall, that's a bag value of about $65 which is very good. The design of the bag is nice and I'll use every product. I would have liked the Purlisse masks but other than that, can't complain.

I'm pretty happy with this bag! I really wanted the tarte lip creme out of the 3 items everyone got this month. And yet another brush.... hooray. lol. Overall though I think ipsy is really learning the things that I like (lip colors, eyeshadows, nailpolish, eyeliners) I still have NEVER gotten a concealer yet! Hopefully next month

I got a lip creme from neutrogena in the Walmart Beauty Box this month and I AM IN LOVE WITH IT! So Im super excited to try the tarte lip cream now.

Love my bag this month.

Tarte lip Creme

I know ipsy's picture looks red but they describe it as a soft poppy color and temptalia calls it "Wonder is a brightened, medium-dark raspberry pink with a soft shine."

Trust fund highlighter

Ren moisturizer

Purlisse mask

Luxie beauty highlighter brush

And the bag is cute too. I keep thinking that I need to cancel because I have way too many products but their bags have been really good the last few months.

This is a meh bag. I'm really only excited about the Tarte lip crayon. I searched for the shade and it's actually a dark pink color instead of red. The day cream and the nail polish are ok, but I really didn't want the highlighter or oil.

I like everyone's bag, my bag this month is sucking hard!  I am getting the Tarte, some conceler, brush, ren product and leave in hair product.  I really wanted to try the Trust Fund or the City Color Highlighters.  But not all months are going to be good.  I will use only 2-3 out of 5 this month.

I'm receiving:
Nth Degree Moroccan Argan Oil & Keratin Hair Serum - Will probably use. Anything with Keratin and I'm down. 

Tarte LipSurgence - Love lippies as long as they are NOT GLOSSES. This isn't, so I'm excited. 

Adesse Nail Polish - I love nail polish and am excited to try a gel effect one. 

Luxie Highlighter Brush - YES! My Luxie brush collection GROWS thanks to subs. I'm addicted. 

Nomad Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Desert Sands - Nude shadow. Okay. Will use eventually. 

 

For the most part, I'm in love.

hmmm. I'm a tad underwhelmed. I'm getting:

 

Tarte LipSurgence in Wonder: love the color, typically like tarte products

Luxie highlighter brush: I'm getting quite the collection of Luxie brushes from sub boxes this year! Good thing I love 'em!

Trust Fund Beauty highlighter: not sure about this one. Face makeup products in the stick formation tend to irritate my skin. And nothing says "Trust Fund" or "Beauty" like a facial rash.... :/

Tula Exfoliating Treatment mask: don't know about this either. My facial skin has been dry and sensitive lately, and depending on what type and how exfoliating this mask is, it may aggravate things further.

Jor'El Parker Fango Face mask: TWO face masks in one bag?! Huh. This one is a mud mask. If it's a hydrating mud mask, that might be ok. If it's a mud mask meant to suck all the oil out of one's face, it's a no-go.

 

("Jor'El?" As in Superman's pops? Interesting name for a cosmetics line...)

 

February was a my return to ipsy after a year, and February's bag was amazeballs. March was a good bag. This month it's just ok.

I'm super happy with my bag! Last month was kind of meh, but this one is 5/5.

 

Buxom liquid lipstick- love this brand and I only wear neutral or natural shade lipsticks. This shade should be a good nude for me.

 

Nudestix- so excited for this! I wanted one last month and am really happy to get one this time.

 

LAB blending brush- love getting brushes and this one can also be used for highlighter.

 

Ren day cream- this is a nice brand and is anti aging.

 

Briogeo gel to oil overnight treatment- my hair is dry on the ends from coloring and winter. I need this!

 

I would've loved to get the purple, pinky purple or lilac nail polish but other than that this bag was perfect for me! I'm so pleased to not get any junk brands. Sephora carries all five of these.

You're the first one I saw get the Buxom. I'm jelly!

I am receiving:

 

Starlooks Luxe Longerwear Eye Pencil in Jet - Hoping this is as good as a Milani one I own which looks similar. Don't wear eyeliner too much, but will try it out

 

tarte LipSurgence Lip Cream in Wonder - Hoping this doesn't dry out my lips like other tarte products have!

 

Trust Fund Beauty That Glo Though Face Highlighter - Yay!! Never tried a cosmetic item by TFB, but I love their polishes. Hoping it is light enough for my fair skin this time of year

 

Luxie Beauty Dreamcatcher Tapered Highlighter Brush 522 - Is it weird to call a brush cute? Because this one looks so cute!

 

Moroccanoil Treatment - Just ran out of my Wella hair oil from an Allure box (best hair oil I have ever tried! Just so expensive for the small amount they give you), so perfect timing!

 

Ipsy has been stepping up their game these past couple of months! :)

I'm getting the Tula mask as well.  I was a bit bummed about missing out on the Purlisse masks, but this has tumeric in it which is supposed to be super amazing for skin.

 

Jor'el is another name for Harvey Prince. Hopefully it won't smell like the perfume. 

 

I'm overall happy with my bag (purple nail polish, tarte, dream catcher brush, city color highlighters, tula mask).  There were things I would have liked to try- Juliette Has a Gun, JPP highlighter. I'm hoping they have a few of the same items next month or available as points perks.

What kind of brush did you get? If it is the highlighter brush I wouldn't mind trading the City Color Highlighter I got.

I know someone who got the Buxom. The Benefit primer seems even rarer. 

My mom got the Benefit Primer in one of her bags. She accidentally set up a new account somehow because she thought her card wouldn't work but she's been charged twice now and can't figure anything out with it. I'll have to hang out with her soon to teach her how to sub.

Ok now that I've realized the oil I'm receiving is for hair and not face, I'm more happy with its inclusion. I have a couple of face oils I'm working on, so I didn't want to receive another, but I've yet to try something like that on my hair so it'll be interesting.

I'm pretty happy with my bag this month.  I'm getting:

 

1. Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Creme in Wonder - Ehhh, I don't really think this one is going to work for me.  I'm pretty sure I had an allergic reaction to the last Lipsurgence I used, and it makes sense because I'm allergic to some products containing mint and this one does.  I might try it since my allergy is fairly minor and see if I'm ok, but I may swap it.

 

2. City Color Cosmetics Highlight Trio - I'm excited for this!  I really love highlighters lately.

 

3. Briogeo Dont Despair, Repair! Gel to Oil Overnight Repair Treatment - I'm excited for this, too.  My hair is highlighted blonde so I'm always happy to get treatments, and this one seems really cool and different from anything I've ever tried.

 

4. REN Skincare Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream - I will be swapping this because I already have a moisturizer I love.

 

5. Crown Brush C427 Duo Fiber Blush Brush - I was really hoping for the Luxie brush, but this one looks almost as good and I always like getting tools in my bag.  

 

Last month was amazing for me.  I love the Illamasqua liner and the Manna Kadar eyeshadow so much - they're both new favorites of mine.

 

There were lots of great items in this month's bag.  I really want to swap for the Luxie brush, the eye brightening liner, the pink blush, and maybe the Jelly Pong Pong contour/blush duo and perfume.

I got my bag today, I'm happy with all the products. It's been a long time since I've been happy with an Ipsy bag.
