February Ipsy Glam Bag Has Arrived!

This afternoon I received my February Ipsy Glam Bag, and with high expectations. Some of the products previewed, like Uberliss RituOil, skyn ICELAND Fresh Start Mask, IPKN NY Moist & Firm BB, and Pacifica Hawaiian Ruby Guava Body Butter, looked awesome. Unfortunately, I received none of these. Here is what was in my bag this month:


I received (clockwise from left):
- First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay (www.firstaidbeauty.com)
- J.Cat Beauty Eye Lashes and Lash Glue (www.jcatbeauty.com)
- Zoya Nail Polish in Dot (www.zoya.com)
- Jesse's Girl 9 Pan Eye Shadow Compact in The Eyes Have It (www.jessesgirlcosmetics.com)
- POP Beauty Plump Pout Mini in Peony Petal (www.popbeauty.com)

A few of the items I did really like. The First Aid Beauty cleanser works really well and unlike last month's facial product I had no skin reaction. The POP Beauty gloss was also really nice, it was a nice bright colour for spring, but not too bright for us wimps who aren't so experimental with makeup colours. I wasn't disappointed with the Zoya nail polish either. I'm already a big fan of the brand, and the colour I received was really cute for Valentine's Day and spring.


I am so not into fake eyelashes though. I have been blessed with long eyelashes naturally and I really can't imagine any occasion I'd want to wear fake eye lashes, save Halloween. I considered giving them to Aislinn, but since they're the glue-on ones as opposed to strips, I really don't want to start messing around with that. From what I read online via reviews and blogs, not many people were enthused to receive the lashes. I'll be giving those away on my local Frugal Mommy Facebook group.

I also thought that the Jesse's Girl eye shadows were terrible. The included wand was cheap and scratchy and the colours did not apply well. They just sort of stayed in place and did not allow for any blending, which I guess would be okay for some people. 

I'm hoping that this month was a blip, that next month's will be better. We can only hope and see.
