Here's the Bag Breakdown
Everything that we received in our January Ipsy. The bag itself is a pretty color but reminds us of a piece of swimwear. Eh.
So what is all this stuff?
Probably our favorite item this month is from Ciate - a Gel topcoat that we'll definitely be using!
Love the size and shape of the bottle
The Balm Bahama Mama Bronzer
The Balm samples are super cute but could they make them any smaller?
The bronzer is a great color and it isn't patchy but - particularly for a bronzer where you need a larger brush how can I even get it in there?
Naked Cosmetics Pigment Shadow
We received this in an old Glossy Box. The kids found it and dumped it all over the floor so now we have a new one which is kind of ironic!
Manna Kadar Blush
This blush is a pretty peachy pink that hinges on a baked look. We received this in a box last month though so....
It is super shimmer and pretty and not the least bit patchy
Note Fragrances in Pink Peony
We actually really like perfume samples so this doesn't bother us at all. (some people do not and that's okay)
Love this perfume it smells like Plumeria but obviously it's Peony. A bright floral with a sweet base. This is a pretty large tester as well!
So in summary
This month's Ipsy wasn't our favorite. Two duplicates - but we did get the top coat and the note perfume which was a welcome inclusion. We think the top coat alone was worth cost costs $17! Definitely always find the value of our Ipsy even if it doesn't blow us away!
