bybmg: February Ipsy Glam Bag and Link up

February Ipsy Glam Bag and Link up

I always look forward to my shiny pink mailer arriving from Ipsy mid-month, and this month's was another pleaser!

The bag this month was as cute as ever! 

Shade: Cosmopolitan
 Retails for $22

I was excited for this blush because I wanted to try something new. It was a little brighter than my normal Clinique blush, but I liked the change and will definitely add it to the rotation.   

Full size retails for $34. I received a sample.

I've never used a face oil before.  With my skin being somewhat dry this winter, I gave it a whirl.  I feel like it's a sub for moisturizer. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong. I didn't mind how it felt on my skin after my shower. I don't think it would be something I would purchase, but trying it out isn't bad.

Shade: Flirtini
Retails for $4.99

Surprisingly, this was my favorite item in the bag!  I'm not a lip color wearer usually. Sometimes I'll add on a gloss or a tinted balm for photos, but that's about it.  This looks a lot darker/pinker in my hand than it actually is on. I love that it's a stain and not a gloss, though the words lip stain usually scare me. I think the matte finish makes it more subtle. AND at the actual price point, this is something I would definitely re-buy.  I'm putting this in my purse!

 Retails for $10

I tried this in my hair before blow drying it, and it seemed to work well, similar to my other heat styling products. I also used it one morning as a heat protector while curling my hair.  It says it's supposed to add a little volume, too, but I haven't seen that benefit. I don't think this would be something I would buy, though it's always nice to try new things.

Retails for $25

I don't own (until now!) or use an eye lash curler, but this one seems really high quality. I'll have to give it a whirl.  Do you use an eyelash curler? Any tips?

 30 count retails for $15. I got a 10 count.  

These wipes were not an actual part of the bag this month. I used my Ipsy Points to buy them last month, and they shipped with this bag. I thought they would be great for travel or to throw in my hospital bag. I haven't opened them yet for that reason. 

Overall, I was pleased with this month's bag. At just $10, I came out way ahead! If you're an Ipsy subscriber, how did your bag compare this month?  Anyone have an tips on the oil or eyelash curler?
