Every month I contemplate cancelling my IPSY subscription. What a way to start out a review, huh? I really do have too many samples but, I usually get at least one product each month that makes me glad that I keep getting the bag. This month’s bag was titled “Fresh Start,” which is quite appropriate for the first bag of the year. The bag itself is one of my favorites, it is really sturdy and not too flashy or flimsy. Inside this nice little bag, I received 5 products, varying from full-size to deluxe sample sized. Check out what I got in my January IPSY bag, maybe you’ll want to give this subscription box a try!
Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush – This brush is fairly short so it seems like it would be great for travel. I really like the pink color as most of my brushes are black, it makes it stand out in my brush holder! The bristles themselves are really, really soft! It also seems to pick up shadow really nicely. Overall a nice little brush!
Hikari Cosmetics Mechanical Eye Liner – This eyeliner is a toss up for me. I like the formula, it seems to glide on the eye nicely but the color is really weird. I guess that is all preference though, I’m not really into being adventurous with eyeliner colors. I wouldn’t really recommend you run out and buy this product but it’s alright.
MALIN+GOETZ Mojito Lip Balm – I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! Mojito is one of my favorite flavors ever so I knew right as I pulled this out of the bag, I was going to love it. I usually stick to lip balm in stick form but this is just as moisturizing if not more! Out of all of the products, this is the one that I would consider purchasing the full-size of!
Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow – Pacifica is a brand that I have used before and all of their products seem to be really high quality. I know that they are also on the pricier side for drugstore so it was exciting to pull this out of the bag. This eye shadow is very versatile, it can be used all over the lid or as a face highlighter. It even has nice, light coconut smell!
Velvet 59 Velvet Rose Lipgloss – I DO NOT like this lipgloss. It smells like baby wipes and that completely turns me off to it. The color is so-so but really that smell, YUCK! I do not want something fresh or baby-ish smelling near my mouth. It seems like a cheap product overall, not a fan.
