Ipsy March 2014 Review

My Ipsy bag came today!! (Along with my Birchbox!!)
Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription. It is $10 a month, and you receive a makeup bag filled with 4-5 products including deluxe samples and full size products. You can sign up here! 

Check out this bag... seriously!! It's gorgeous!! Ipsy partnered with artist Klari Reis this month to design this stunning bag! From the pictures online, I thought it was going to be textured, and I was worried about that because I really want to put it in my purse, but I didn't want to ruin it! It's not textured!! Yay!!

We have an actual work of art here!:) Pretty cool!

[the product]: NYX Love in Rio Eye Shadow [full size!]

[the color]: I got the Amazonian Babes palette.
These are 3 shimmer eye shadows, no mattes. 

[my thoughts]: Not bad. I would have been happier with a matte shadow in the mix, but these are nice. The outer 2 shadows are pretty pigmented and the inner one is pretty light, which will make for a good highlight shade. 

[the worth]: $6.00

[the product]: Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer [12 mL]

[from the tube]: Even skintone face primer. Adds a youthful glow. Hydrating. 

[my thoughts]: It's got a nice clean lotion-y smell. I like that. I have never tried any Pixi products, 
so I'm ok with trying this one. I think it is probably a decent size sample, because I imagine a little goes a long way. It seems a little shimmery on my skin. 

[the worth]: The 30ml one is $9.00 and this one is only 12ml, so this one is worth $3.60

[the product]: Chella Indigo Blue Eye Liner [full size!]

[the color]: It's like a darkish blue... 

[my thoughts]: I really wanted this one, so I am really excited to try it out. I am just getting into makeup again and I don't have anything like this!! I don't have any sort of eyeliner PEN, so this will be fun to play with! 

[the worth]: $24!

[the product]: bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick [1.5g]

[the color]: Get Ready

[my thoughts]: I don't normally wear lipstick, but I figure why not? It's a really pretty color. And it smells good... not that it needs to smell, but it's better than a lot of lipsticks I have smelled in the past lol 

[the worth]: around $7.00

Swatches in sunlight.

Swatches in shade.

Again in shade... it's hard to take pictures of my arm with my big camera! LOL

So, then to take everything off my arm... I used an (as in one) Almay Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pad. It all came right off, including the eyeliner!

Thanks for looking at what I got from Ipsy this month. What did you get!?
