Ipsy January 2015 Glam Bag is here!!! Once again my January 2015 Glam Bag arrived super early giving me time to test the goodies I received. I do have to say that my bag arrived before my tracking information did AGAIN. I can’tcomplain about that though! The January 2015 Glam Bag is really, really cute! It’s giving me a very 60’s/70’s vibe with the color combo and texture. The zipper is a shade of muted peach while one side of the bag white and the other side is a pretty shade of cobalt blue. Ipsy does makeup bags VERY well but the actual contents of my January 2015 Glam Bag are what everyone is interested in.
Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer – I have heard of Joeur before but I have yet to try anything from their line so I was excited about getting this product: Jouer’s Lip Enhancer. While it comes in a variety of shades the one I got is a light pink tint but it goes on clear. Lip Enhancer is touted to give me full, plumper lips and keep them hydrated as well. I’m wearing this as I write my review and I am finding it comfortable to wear, has no taste and it does have a slightly floral smell to it. I will definitely be using Jouer’s Essential Lip Enhancer and if I love it enough I’ll be purchasing it.
Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush – I’m a makeup brush JUNKIE and this lovely brush from Elizabeth Mott is hot pink! The bristles are super soft, it’s definitely a multi-tasker and I can see myself using this brush regularly. I received an eyeshadow from this brand last year and so far I think I would actually try more from Elizabeth Mott’ s full line.
bellapierre Cosmetics Shimmer Powder Whesek – Admittedly I am not overly fond of mineral cosmetics, especially loose shadows BUT my positive experience with Fusion of Color Cosmetics has made me a bit more open about the mineral cosmetics world. Whesek is such an odd shade of blackened grey with a weird silvery white shimmer to it. This is the oddest eyeshadow I have ever used. It starts off a shimmery silver and then with blending you blend away the silvery white part and are left with a blackened, ashy grey mess that looks like cigarette ashes with micro glitter. Whesek also smells like copper when blended. This is a total throw away for me.
Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eyeshadow in Ethereal – A shimmery, light pinky beige that is very similar to my skin tone. I have a ton of shades like this and Ethereal is just OK in my opinion. I own better. I wish Ipsy would get over it’s love affair with Pacifica. They are becoming the new Be A Bombshell: mediocre cosmetics in numerous bags!
La Fresh Group eco-beauty good day-day moisturizer – I really dig the packaging on this sample size: it’s resealable! I haven’t used it yet but I do like receiving decent sized samples for travel. La Fresh products I’ve received in the past I’ve enjoyed, so this sample was a big plus for me!
The only major miss for me from the Ipsy January 2015 Glam Bag was the bellapierre cigarette ash eyeshadow. Otherwise the other four products I received were all great to decent. This month I got three full sized items and two deluxe sample sized products. Not bad for $10. Ipsy gets ANOTHER monthly reprieve from me. Do you get Ipsy? What was in your bag this month?
