February Ipsy

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links

I actually wasn't sure if I was going to get an Ipsy bag this month. I got a new credit card last month because my card was part of the Target security breach. After I got my new card I never even thought about updating my card info on Ipsy... come to think of it, I don't know if I updated it anywhere... I wonder what autopay bills aren't getting paid? Luckily Drew takes care of 99.9% of the bills, so I'm probably not forgetting anything two important. I hope. I digress... what I was trying to say here was that I was really surprised when Drew brought the mail in Friday night and that distinctive pink bubble bag was there.

This months Ipsy theme is The Look of Love. Makes sense with Valentine's day and all. So of course the pink bag is fitting for this month. I love this bag because it's simple and cute- but also has a cute touch on the inside. I'll be using this bag a lot. Actually the bags are one of my favorite parts of Ipsy, I use most of them for organizing stuff or for Fynn to play with (the girl loves purses. I'm so proud).

POP Beauty Plump Pop Mini in Fuchsia Freesia ($16)

This looks disgustingly pink in the bottle, but when it's on it's a lot more subtle. Still pink, but not a shocking color. Something I could actually wear in public. I like this lip gloss a lot, it goes on smooth and isn't super sticky like some glosses. Would I pay $16 for it? No way, but that's because I'm cheap and has nothing to do with the quality of the lip gloss. 

Zoya Nail Polish in Dot ($9)
I love Zoya nail polishes. I've gotten a couple in other Ipsy bags and always loved them. The go on super smooth and last longer than a lot of other polishes I have. I'm pretty rough on my nails, so a polish that can last 4-5 days without chipping is pretty impressive to me. The color I got is okay. I love pink, but it's a little pale for me. I like brighter nail polishes for the most part, but I know I'll end up wearing this.

Tini Beauty Eyetini Cordial Cream Shadow + Base in One in Ambrosia ($18)

I had no idea what this was when I first opened it. It looked like lip gloss, but since I already got the Pop Mini, I knew it had to be something else. Turns out it's a cream eyeshadow. It goes on really smoothly and has a nice shimmer of color. I love the pink and I know this is something I'll actually wear since it's not over the top. 

Skyn Iceland Fresh Start Mask with Ice Age Mud ($6.50).
Another product where I had no idea what it was until I read about it. It says it's a 10 minute treatment that does 5 bajillion things to make your skin look amazing. After I read about it, I thought it would be pretty cool if it works well to keep buying... until I say that it's $6.50 a treatment. Yeah, no thanks. A 6-pack of these will set you back $39. Thanks but no thanks. That said, I am looking forward to trying it out. 

J. Cat Beauty Eyelashes and Eyelash Glue ($3.99)

Why do they keep sending me this? I've gotten this exact eyelash pack 3 or 4 times already now. Each time when I review it on their site, I say it's "not for me"... yet they keep sending it. Maybe I should say I love it so they never send it to me again. I'm sure they're great if you're someone who wears fake eyelashes, but that so is not me.

Overall this month's Ipsy bag had a value of $53.49. Always a great deal considering I only spend $10 a month on it and get to try all kinds of new products... or things I'm to cheap to buy on my own. I know I rave about it every month, but that's because I love what I get in my Ipsy bag every month... except for the eyelashes, they need to chill on the eyelashes. 


  1. I'm loving The Zoya polish this month!

  2. I just signed up for Ispy and I can't wait to get my first bag! I've never tried fake eyelashes, but I want to see what they are like!
