March Ipsy Bag

Hikari “Shine” Cream Pigment Shadow // City Color “Glow Duo”  // Tarte Sexy Kitten Set (Liner)  //  Glossier “Mint Balm Dotcom” //  Skone “Large Shadow” Brush

I love when my Ipsy bag comes in monthly. I look forward to getting new products to try and then deciding if I want to buy them. I love the bag itself from this month. I mentioned this in my Ipsy Haul post, but each month you get a different bag and some of them are so cute! I love that you can color this one in and make it your very own. It came with the markers but you can also use your own.

I tried out these products when I got them, and here are my thoughts:

  1. “Shine” Pigment Shadow – the pigment on this is amazing! I did one swipe of a swatch that I will share down below with the highlights. I couldn’t believe how creamy and pigmented this shadow was and can’t wait to use it!
  2. City Color “Glow Duo” – Alright I have mixed feelings about this palette. I absolutely love the powder highlight. The pigmentation on this is amazing, I will share a picture below. I did not like the cream highlight. I could tell it was nice but it didn’t show well when I did a swatch. I prefer powder highlights usually and never have luck with cream ones.

3. Tarte Sexy Kitten Eyeliner – WOW is all I can say. I usually have a hard time finding eye liner and mascara because my eyes are extremely sensitive. When I put eyeliner on my lower lid, eyeliners usually bleed into my eye and make my eye red and scary looking. This eyeliner however was AMAZING, it didn’t sting, it didn’t bleed, it was great! I ended up ordering the set which is what I linked. I thought that it was a great price for all three!

4. Glossier Mint Balm Dotcom – In the winter I get extremely dry and chapped lips. I have been looking for something to keep them hydrated and fresh and I have found it! I actually really liked this and was surprised. I linked a deal for three of them above.

5. Skone ” Large Shadow” Brush – I tried out this brush last night for my crease and lid shadow and loved it!

My Top 10 Products from Ipsy

I have been an Ipsy lover since my sister showed me their site last year! How amazing is it to get 5 Products all based on what you love, in the mail, each month for only $10.00?!

I thought it would be a good idea to share the items I have received with Ipsy and share my top 10 based off the past 5 months.

Each ipsy bag design is different every month and sometimes, they have a meaning as to why they are chosen! I love all of the little bags and I use them all.

24k Magic Highlighter – this highlight is so beautiful, I can’t get over it. I have an olive skin tone and love the way this looks on my skin.

2.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On – this is the color matte blackist black. I love how smooth this eye liner is.

3.

Too Faced smelted Matte – This is the shade “Queen B” and it is stunning! I really love nude toned colors with a pop of pink tones. It looks gorgeous on.

4.

Pink Brush Luxie 207 – I use this brush for my Smokey eye and it does such a wonderful job at blending.

Black Brush Luxie 239 – They no longer have this in black but have it in the same pink color as the above! I use this Brush when applying my cream shadow! It really holds onto all of the pigmentation of the shadow.
