February Ipsy Bag

I always love the middle of every month because that's when I receive my Ipsy Glam Bag!

Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service.  For just $10 a month you get 4-6 deluxe sample products and often a couple of full size items all in a cute little makeup bag.

The theme of this month's bag is "The Look of Love" which is fitting for Valentine's month.  This month the makeup bag was plain and pink and I received 5 items.



Skyn Iceland Fresh Start Mask - $39 for a box of 6 masks
This is a mask that "re-texturizes skin to reveal a luminous, youthful translucence for a fresh start." This is  2-step process where you add equal amounts of the clay and the gel on your face and then massage until it creates a warm foam.  You leave this on your skin for 5-10 minutes.  I look forward to trying this.  I've really been into brightening masks lately (currently obsessed with GlamGlow).



I love false lashes so I was excited to get these.  The lashes look very lush and long.  A tiny tube of lash glue is included.



Pop Beauty Plump Pout in Fuchsia Freesia - $16 for full size which is 0.3oz
This is a deluxe sample size at 0.14oz.  The packaging is really nice and the cap is like Nars packaging with the soft rubber feel.  This gloss is a really pigmented bright pink, though a little TOO bright for my taste. Then there's the smell...I'm not sure what other way to explain it except maybe that it smells like oil or gasoline.  The stench is REALLY strong and it's quite possible that I will never use this gloss because of it.



This is a full size item.  Supposedly you don't have to wear an eye shadow primer under this long-wearing cream shadow.  The color is a gorgeous "pink-kissed lilac" (according to 'Tini Beauty). This feels really creamy and I LOVE the color.  I can't wait to try this shadow.  Disclaimer: This is another bad smelling product but it's going on my eyes so hopefully it's far enough from my nose that I won't notice it.  :)
Another full size item.  I love when we receive Zoya polishes in our Ipsy bags!  This is a really pretty pale pink color.  This shade really reminds me of my Essie Fiji polish, it's just an ever so slightly darker pink.




February's Ipsy Bag was a great one!  Ipsy really made up for last month's bag which was in my opinion, pretty darn lame. I'm excited to use every item I received this month except the gloss.  I always recommend Ipsy to any beauty fan, it is in my opinion the most fun monthly subscription service out there in this price range.  Not to mention, this month's bag again far exceeds the $10 I paid for it.  If you'd like to sign up, you may click on Ipsy anywhere in this post and use my referral link.

Did we get any of the same products?  What are you thoughts?  Is your Pop Beauty Gloss as stinky as mine or is mine just rotten?

  1. OMG! I thought I might have been the only one who noticed the smell of the gloss, man it's bad!!! I got mine in Peony Petal, which is a gorgeous mauve-y pink color but the smell, ugh! I haven't tried it yet, but I hope when applied it doesn't linger.
    I love the eyeshadow you got, such a pretty color!

    1. It's NASTY and I feel like no one else is mentioning it! I wish I got your color because mauve shades def. look better on me. Btw, the smell doesn't stay forever but it does linger too long for me so even if I liked the color I prob wouldn't use it. That's ok though b/c I love everything else I got!

  3. This looks like a really great bag! I am wearing down and will probably get my own subscription to this soon! There's nothing I dislike more than a nasty smelling gloss. I can never get past it, even if I really like the color. All of the other products look great! xoxo Lauren

  4. This is such a good month from Ipsy! I love the whole pink theme for Valentine's Day too. I'm really interested in seeing how that Eyetini shadow works, the color is really pretty! I still haven't signed up for any subscription boxes, but if i ever do, I think Ipsy is the one I'm going for.

    1. Yes, Ipsy is the best one in my opinion for beauty lovers. I've also had Birchbox and Sample Society and dropped both of those. Thanks for visiting!

  5. Hey Love! I got the Pink Peony colored lip gloss and love it. Its not quite as bright but still very pigmented. I'm posing my review Monday. The smell is a little weird but it doesn't bother me that much. I also got the EyeTini but in the Ambrosia! I love it but I did use a base first and it blending it made the shadow not as brilliant. I found a way for it to work though. Thanks for sharing what you got! I always love seeing what everyone else gets.

  7. I really liked the look of this bag! I was really curious about that lipgloss, but since the smell is so bad I'll probably just not bother with picking one up! Love that cream eyeshadow shade too! :)

    1. Well it seems like the smell doesn't bother many other people so maybe it won't be too terrible for you. Yes, the shadow color is def. gorgeous. Thanks for visiting!

  8. My lip gloss doesn't smell that bad! Maybe you got a bad batch?! lol I was excited about the eye shadow, too, but it turns a yucky color on my eye lids. :( I'm excited to try my Zoya polish. I got an orchid-y purple!

    1. You know, maybe you're right about me getting a bad batch b/c the more posts I read about this bag, I barely see anyone else mention the smell! That's a bummer about the shadow turning ugly, ugh! Now I want to try mine soon!

  10. We got the same exact products and shades this month! Lash style is different though but that's the only diff lol. OMG I noticed that weird smell too with the lip gloss! To me it smelled like burnt plastic or something?!?! However I did do a swatch on my hand and waited a few minutes before I smelled it again. The plastic smell went away and was left with a subtle cinnamon smell.

    I already used the face mask and enjoyed it =) So I hope that you do too! It definitely left my face feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. I'm glad you like this month's bag! Looking forward to see what you get in March =)

    1. Yes, it was def. a chemical-y smell to the gloss. I def. didn't notice it turning to a cinnamon smell though haha, maybe I got a bad batch, who knows. Funny that you got fuchsia color too b/c I only know 2 other people who got that shade. I would have preferred the more subtle pink shade though.

      Oh yes, I used the mask and it was good. Not as great as some others I used but decent enough. Thanks for stopping by Liz!
