I am pretty stoked this month. I'm getting:

 

- Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eyeshadow Trio - $10

I am always up for getting eyeshadow and I've never tried Pacifica before (aside from the sketchy lipstick in December) so I'm happy with this.

 

 

SOO AE 3 Collagen Essence Sheet Mask Set - $12

This was one of things that really stood out to me in the spoilers. I LOVE masks. I am also just getting into Korean skin care so this is perfect so I am very, very excited for this. 

 

 

Etat Libre d'Orange Remarkable People Fragrance - $10

I've never received perfume from Ipsy before so this is also exciting. According to the website, the notes are Grapefruit, Champagne Accord, Cardamom, Jasmine, Curry Je, Black Pepper, Labdanum, Sandalwood & Lorenox which sounds very unique.

 

 

- Bella Pierre Lip Liner in Nude - $18

I really wanted this from the spoiler. It's full-sized and I definitely need one since I don't have any lip liners. The colour seems like a good match for my lips. Another hit.

 

 

Smashbox X-Rated Mascara - $7

This was the item I wanted from the initial spoiler (since obviously I wasn't going to get the Glamglow) and while I have too much mascara, I won't complain. This is a product I will always need/use.

 

That's a combined value of $57 which is great. I'm excited for 3/5 and happy with the other 2. The only thing I wanted from the spoiler that I didn't get was the sperm whale brush but that's $4 on the Glamour Dolls site so I can always purchase it.

 

Overall, this was a great month from Ipsy. And the bag is fantastic too (fingers crossed for the pink one).

Are we all seeing the purple bag?  I notice none of us have glamglow. 

 

Jersey Shore Lavender lip balm- I wanted this from the spoilers. I still haven't used up the mango one from last year.

Eva NY Hungry Hair- meh

JPP sun bronzer duo- I love this brand. Their stuff is so cute and smells like candy.

Gel aurora nail polish- it shows hot pink but could be orange- I would like either

It Liner- at least it's not the mascara.

It looks like the purple bag, but maybe that is what everyone is getting. 

Smashbox Xrated Mascara- I have recently tried this, it works!  Better than glamglow, I know that I am the minority in saying that!

Organic Pharmacy Lip Treatment- I love any lip items!

Mellow Creamy Matte- finally, a lipstick!  Either color works for me, it the red/orange is too much, hopefully I can tone it down w/ gloss!

Hikari Bronzer- This may become blush!

10.0.6 Pores Be Pure Clarifying Mask- not sure about this, will have to read the back.

 

For my second account:

Same purple bag....

It Cosmetics Mini Liner-I wish they would send brown/blackbrown eyeliners, but I will use!

Jelly Pong Pong Bronzer Duo-I am excited to try this brand!

Smugger Brush

Hanalei Lip Treatment

And some sort of hair oil that is not going on my hair!

 

Both pretty good bags, can't complain this month.

My bag:

 

post-93138-0-01991200-1462466790.png

 

Pacifica eye shadow: Looks pretty, haven't been impressed with their color payout though we'll see,

Etat Libr d'Orange: I think I've tried this from Birchbox, but I'm ok with perfumes. I like unique scents,

Hikari Cosmetics shimmer bronzer: Love bronzers, not sure about the "shimmer" part though,

The Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant lip balm: love this! I love lip balm and go through them like mad,

Smashbox mascara: Meh, new type I'll give it a whirl.

 

I would have been happy with a lot of the products offered this month. I'm pretty satisfied with my bag.

I'm getting:

 

Smashbox X-rated mascara- wanted to try this!

 

Bellapierre nude gel lip liner- I'll be thrilled if this works on me. I have a lot of pigment in my lips naturally and nudes are hard for me to find.

 

Slmissglam small contour brush- Third month in a row getting brushes, something I love to get!

 

Organic Pharmacy antioxidant lip balm- I use lip balm all the time, this one sounds nice.

 

Avene lotion cleanser/makeup remover- I really wanted to try this, yay!!

 

I would have loved the collagen sheet masks, but this bag has potential to be 5/5 for me :)

Alright so this month I got:

The Caribbean Sun Duo bronzer

The no tug waterproof eye line

The Miccelar makeup remover

An eye smudge brush

Aurora old school pink gel effect nail polish

Is anyone interested in trading either the nail polish or brush? I cannot use nail polish due to my job so it it totally useless!

I'm pretty ok with this bag. Not excited about the mascara since I have enough of them but I guess I'll just save it for the future. I don't use bronzer, but I'll try it out. Happy about the lip balm, makeup remover, and eyeshadows!

I'm getting:
 

1. Smashbox X-Rated mascara - I'm excited to try this, but I kind of wanted to try the It Cosmetics No Tug eyeliner a little bit more.

2. Glamour Dolls Blending Brush w/ the whale design - so cute!

3. Acne cleanser - I'll probably swap this.  I do have acne-prone skin, but SA (the active ingredient in this cleanser) irritates my skin

4. Hanalei lip treatment - excited to try

5. Mellow lipstick - excited to try

 

Overall, another good bag for me!

My bag is a big ole bag of disappointment. There were so many skincare things I'd much rather have and what happens, I get one skincare product default_sad.png I know Ipsy is more makeup heavy, but I have my profile checked so that there's like no makeup (except eyeliner and I think lipstick or concelear). I've been resubbed since January and while my bags are usually great, this is the only awful one, I'm just finding I'm not actually using like any of the makeup they send me, so I think it might be time to cancel.

 

* Vera Mona Eye Smudger Brush. Third bag in a row with a brush. I'm bored of them.

* Glamour Dolls Gloss Snob in Twirl. What even. I have no words for this. I hate lip gloss, I rate every gloss I receive negatively and what do I get? More lip gloss (and gross bright pink made for 5 year olds gloss as well). I guess if it's not sticky maybe I can use it over lipstick, but in reality I'll probably just trash it.

* Jelly Pong Pong Carribean Sun Bronzer Duo. This could be okay, bronzers always tend to look weird on me, but the blush side looks like it could be okay, and who knows maybe the bronzer will be nice? I'm at least sorta interested in this.

* It Cosmetics Eyeliner. I actually wanted this out of the original spoilers, so yay. Love It Cosmetics.

* Vasanti. I got this before in a Birchbox and I think I have another DS sample of it somewhere. I love this stuff and I'm happy to get more since I can see myself purchasing one day. The only thing I'm disappointed about with this is that all the other skincare would have been new to me, and instead I get a repeat, but at least it's a good repeat!

Overall my bag is like 2/5. Thank goodness both my Birchboxes are good this month!

I'm getting...

 

The It Cosmetics No Tug Gel Liner - I love gel liners like this and so I am super happy to try one out, especially in a travel size!

 

Mellow Creamy Matte Lipstick - will be thrilled if I get the nude color because I can never have too many matte lipsticks, but I will have absolutely no use for electro

 

Hikari Cosmetics Shimmer Bronzer - In my opinion, every shade expect the blusher shade is too shimmery to use as a bronzer. Its just not my cup of tea. However I am going to see if I can re purpose these into eyeshadows because then they would be super pretty.

 

Vera Mona Eye Smudger Brush - Always happy to get brushes, but especially eye brushes! Super excited for this 

 

NoTS 28Remedy Acne Pore Deep Cleanser - While I have some pretty good cleansers down I'll give anything a try that says it will clear up acne. My skin isnt sensitive in the slightest so I'm excited to really 'deep clean' my skin.

 

All and all I'm pretty happy with my bag. There is nothing I wont use so 5/5 for that. There were some other products I would've liked to try but, oh well.

Finally a better bag for me. Most of my Ipsy bags are hit or miss.

My Ipsy bag came yesterday! Two great bags in a row. Even the gel lipliner looks good on me :)

 

I did end up with the pink bag, but I can give it to one of my nieces. I hope they do snap closures again sometime.

I got a blue bag, so I'm good with that. I like the gel eyeliner and the JPP bronzer duo. Everything else was meh but nothing awful so I'm happy I picked it back up.

My bag came today! I got the blue one. I was fine with any color but we all guessed on what color I would get and I guessed pink. My boyfriend guessed right though! I love the Hibiskiss Lip Color. It's the perfect shade and hasn't left my lips dry. The Smashbox mascara gave me definition and volume, which I like. I was also happy with the brush and was tickled to find out it has little jewels on the handle! The face wash seems fine but I've only used it once so I can't really judge it yet. The only slight disappointment was my Aurora nail polish arrived in the pink shade and I kind of wanted the orange. I have an outfit that color will look good with though so it's fine but it's a really bright neon flamingo pink. Like I initially thought I'm very happy with this bag and will use all the items. I know lots of people have a love hate relationship with Ipsy but they continue to remain my favorite subscription.

I got the blue bag.  For some reason the only color I didn't want was purple.  It's probably from a childhood of constantly being given purple stuff because one time I asked for a purple toothbrush or something. You know how families will assign each child a favorite color and then you are stuck with it forever?

This made me lol! I have two sisters. My blue eyed sister's favorite color is blue so she has always gotten blue gifts. My other sister has green eyes and has always gotten green gifts. I have brown eyes and my Mom "assigned" pink for me and I can't stand pink. I've been trying to convince her that I like purple for 25 years!

I always had the strongest dislike for pink and I was also assigned pink by my father!! Pink and Barbie, neither of which I enjoyed.
