Ipsy had an interesting theme for January 2014 “19 Reasons 2014 Will be Amazing”.
Here is the bag, it has a nice feel to it, a smooth matted feel on the different parts of it. It’s very chic!
First up is a Smooth Shadow creamy eye pencil in Penny from Elizabeth Mott. Please correct me if I’m wrong, but this pencil is literally a disposable sample. The bottom doesn’t work as a twist up style, the pencil doesn’t feel like I will be able to sharpen it, which makes it feel like they would’ve saved materials placing an eyeliner swatch on a sheet sample. I’m hoping I’m wrong and you can sharpen this or something weird, please leave me a comment to fill me in lol. This color is a nice color that I will definitely try on the next time I’m heading out somewhere! 😃
I’m new to the brand (Malin + Goetz) Mojito lip balm in a squeeze tube. It’s interesting that the tube doesn’t have a slanted lip applicator, just a flat opening. I’ll keep this at home so I can wash hands before using my finger to apply to lips. I didn’t smell any mojito or taste any sweet flavoring to the balm. The consistency was surprisingly a clear gel like texture so I expected it to be thin and gel like. Wrong! After applying, I noticed it is slightly thick in texture and spreads like a gloss almost, but not quite as sticky as most gloss. I like it! This lip balm is listed at $12 on their site, so this makes the bag worth it alone! 😃
Proactiv samples were included, I’ve never tried the brand or needed it growing up. These are 4 pad samples of their Mark Fading Pads, for preventing acne also. I shared these with my mom because she has a few spots she would like to fade, and it’s a great way to test if these work!
I was excited to get this Soy Tri-Wheat leave in conditioner from Sexy Hair. I could always use a good leave in detangler help, post shower!
I haven’t decided how I feel about this sample tube of Soothing & Smoothing Eye Cream from Skiin. It has chemical ingredients so I don’t think I should risk it.
Overall this was a good bag but also not a favorite. I enjoyed trying the lip balm out, it feels like it would also make a great overnight lip moisturizing treatment. What’d you get in your bag, if you’re an Ipster? 😃
