Ipsy March 2013

 No March Ipsy bag!

I missed out on Ipsy’s March bag due to my absent-mindedness (and procrastination) when it came to updating my credit card. If only I had done so, this would be my bag:

Darn it, I really like that bag and wanted the GlamRX palette

Birchbox February 2013

Both Ipsy and Birchbox chose the red carpet as their theme for the month of February. Birchbox's official theme is Red Carpet Ready.

I peaked again before I got my February box and I instantly became disappointed in the selections for the month.  I was under impression that we had no full size product this month until I got my box.

Ghirardelli Milk and Chocolate Square


Dermablend Professional Quick-Fix Concealer in Tan

FULL SIZE! Thank goodness, this made my box feel worthwhile! I am a long time user of the brand Dermablend  (over 10 years) and I always turn to their concealers for this moments when I want to look as close to flawless as possible.

Quick-Fix concealer is a full coverage, long wearability concealer with an SPF of 30.  This tube alone carries a $24 price tag.

Votivo candle in Pink Mimosa Scent
Pink Mimosa smells wonderful but why are we starting to get home products in our boxes now? What happened to it being a beauty box?

 Juicy Couture Couture La La

More perfume samples! :/

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator

Packed with papaya enzymes and micro-crystals, this cleanser is suppose to exfoliate your skin and rid of dead skin cells to help brighten your complexion.

Twistband Headband

The only product I was happy to get in this box was the Dermablend concealer. What was yours?

Ipsy February 2013

Hi all! So I'm playing catch up with all my previous boxes. Normally, I would take a photo of my new products before I used them, so as soon as I received my February Ipsy bag, I took photos of my products and now it's nowhere to be found. Therefore I will be posting the photos from My Glam Room instead. I apologize for not making this personable.

So the theme was Red Carpet Ready. Considering it was the month of Valentine's Day, I actually expected something of the sorts.

Ipsy January 2013

I was very satisfied with my previous Ipsy box that I was looking forward to this month’s box. The theme: Super Stars!

This month’s make up bag is a solid navy blue color on the outside and a starry night look on the inside. I don't know how it could have happened, but I've misplaced the bag and have yet to find it. 

Photo is from my Ipsy My Glam Room

January’s contents:

Sexy Hair Bigsexyhair Spray and Play volumizing hairspray.

London SoHo New York Crease Brush
This is another back up item to add to my stash.

Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter
Mmh! This smells wonderful. It’s been ages since I’ve been able to find any Pacifica products in my local stores so I am glad this is part of our box.

Nailtini Nail Lacquer in Frappe

Josie Maran Argan Oil
All I can say is “yes!”,  Josie Maran Argan Oil just made my bag extra special this month.

I’m definitely loving my January bag!
