IPSY February 2017


It is that time again! This hot pink mailer showed up today. I am always so excited when it does. Ipsy is my favorite beauty subscription that I receive. For $10 a month, you cannot beat the value of what you get. I usually enjoy being surprised but I did catch wind of some spoilers this month, and I have a feeling this month’s bag is going to be a good one!

Let’s see what I got:



Luna Cosmetics Highlighter in “Calypso”:

I am OBSESSED with this highlighter. First off, highlighters are my favorite thing on planet earth right now. I would apply them all over my body if I could. This product in particular is a fantastic size for a sample, it will take me forever to get through it. I would not be surprised if this was a full size. The pigmentation is great, and since it is a baked product if I was to apply it wet it would be even stronger. I also love supporting smaller brands, which Luna cosmetics is!


NYX Professional Makeup Butter™ Lipstick in “Ripe Berry”:

Another total hit! It is a full size lipstick, by a brand I already know I adore. The shade is gorgeous, it reminds me of raspberries, so the name “ripe berry” is oh so fitting. I love NYX “Butter” lip products. This lipstick is so comfortable on the lips and since it is a darker shade it stains the lips and lasts for hours after the hydration wears off. Very pleased with adding this product to my collection.


Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Blush Brush 514:

Another full size product! I have received a few other Luxie brushes in my Ipsy bags and I must say they are becoming some of my favorites. They are so soft, you can’t even imagine. They are made with synthetic hairs, meaning it will pick up a great deal of pigment. Oh, and this one is just so pretty! Pink and rose gold, what could be better? Can’t wait to make this my new blush brush.


Biobelle #StayGorgeous and #Iwokeuplikethis Sheet Masks

Two sheet masks?! I am so excited. The full size count is up to 3 now, maybe 4. Yes, I could be peeved considering I received two sheet masks in my bag last month. But since sheet masks are my favorite skin care products at the moment, I am not peeved at all. I have heard good things about this brand, so I am excited to try these bad boys. The packaging is adorable too! Who doesn’t want to use something called “I Woke Up Like This?!”



Elizabeth Mott “Whatup Beaches” Matte Bronzer:

Okay, they do get points for the hilarious product name, I will give them that.However, this is a miss for a few reasons. First, I got a tiny bronzer sample in my bag last month. Second, the cheap plastic packaging just makes me want to get rid of this. You can pop the pan out to put into a magnetic palette if you have one (which I don’t right now). However, since the product is so small, good luck getting a brush in. I will have to re-purpose this as an eyeshadow,  because it would be a great crease color. For a bronzer sample though, this is a miss.


 I am so happy with the products I received this time. This is one of the best bags I have ever gotten! I was let down by the makeup bag itself though. Yes I realize not everything in February needs to be pink and heart-shaped, but denim? Really?

Overall I am so pleased with Ipsy this time around!

What did you get this month? I would love to know!
