January 2015 Ipsy Bag

This month's Ipsy bag was okay, but I wasn't overwhelmed or wowed by anything in it. The theme this month was "Fresh Start"- which makes total sense for the month of January. The bag is super cute- I'm using this one in my make up basket before Fynn get's her hands on it and turns it into another purse!

J. Cat Beauty Fantabulous Gel Eyeliner in Blue Black ($5.99)
I have so many things of eyeliner and gel eyeliner that I just don't end up using. I don't wear it on a regular basis, just on special occasions, so I'll probably see if anyone I know wants this. I'm less likely to use this one than some of the others I've gotten since it's in a little pot. Which means putting it on with a brush. Which just never goes well in my world. I'm more of a eyeliner pencil than anything... I'm a little less likely to look like a mess that way. 

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Sheer Glo Shimmer Lotion (~$3 for a .27oz sample-the regular size is $29, but I can't find on their website how large that size is.)
Again, something I don't really need. I do like that it's not scented and that it's very sheer apart from the slight shimmer. If I actually had an even to get all dolled up for, I might try this with some foundation to really make my skin glow

Nourish Organic Renewing Eye Cream ($19.99)
I always love products by Nourish Organic- their face wash that I got a couple of months ago is my absolute favorite ever, so I'll give this a try. I always intend to be good about using eye cream and then forget to use it after about a week, so we'll see how that goes. 

Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow in Ethereal  (~$5- I couldn't find this exact kind online, but a set of 3 coconut infused eyeshadow is listed as $14 in their website)
I like the neutral color of this eyeshadow. I'll probably end up using this a lot-it may help hide the tired eye look I've been rocking lately and am sure to be rocking for many months to come. I'm not sure how coconut eye shadow is different from regular eye shadow, but I guess I'll see soon if there's any significant difference. 

Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush ($6)
Like the eyeliner, I don't really need this brush since I'm awful at fine lines or detail makeup. That said, it's a nice brush... I wish I had a use for it. I guess whoever gets this month's eyeliner will also get a nice brush to go with it. Now if they had sent me a foundation brush, I would have been psyched, because my current one is literally falling apart and I need to go buy a new one a.s.a.p.

Like I said, I'm not thrilled by this month's bag. Several of the items are things I Just won't end up using. The total value of the bag was almost $40. Four times the monthly subscription cost (including shipping), so I can't complain. Someone will really love the eyeliner and brush I'll be gifting from this bag.
