February Ipsy Unboxing

February Ipsy Unboxing

My February Ipsy Bag has arrived! So here it is my February Ipsy Unboxing. I’m so happy I signed up for my beauty subscription. I really have been enjoying my products lately. If you haven’t already, go visit https://www.ipsy.com/ and sign up for your own subscription. The key to getting great products is to consistently review the products you receive to help Ipsy send you products you’ll actually enjoy.

I really need to do a better job at actually using the products from previous bags. One of my favorite products that I have received so far is my Nourish Organic Pure Hydrating Argan Face Serum. I can’t remember what month this product came from but it is a new must have in my collection. The serum is suggested for normal to dry skin. The way I use the product is to start by washing my face. After I wash and dry my face off I put a few drops into the palm of my hands and massage it into my face. I only use the serum before I go to sleep. Overnight your face tends to get very dry and this serum really helps my face wake up feeling extremely refreshed!

Okay on to the bag,

What’s in the Bag:

This month’s theme is Pretty in #IpsyPink. “This February we’re taking our favorite shade from dainty to daring with rule-breaking looks for all beauty lovers!”

Luxie 221 Flat Definer Brush

I love that they included a brush in this month’s bag. I have been a fan of the Luxie brushes for some time now because I love the rose gold touch. However, they are pretty pricy and I don’t know too much about the quality of the brushes. I hope that because of the high price they hold the same level of quality. I will most likely be using this brush for under eye makeup or lining. I am obsessed with getting new brushes so this is definitely the item I am most excited for in my bag.

Naked Cosmetics Mica Pigment in Sierra Nevada

I don’t own too many pigments so I’m pretty excited to use this for some new eye looks. I’m not too ambitious when it comes to creating any new eye shadow looks but I’m working on it! I tend to stick to just a couple different shades but I do try to get adventurous in my free time.

Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind in the shade Pink Sequin

I love a good   so this is the perfect item for me. It comes in a beautiful shade of pink with lots of shimmer. I really like glosses that are “sticky” and when I swatched this one on the back of my hand I loved it. It is more of a shimmer lip gloss rather than a pigmented shade and should definitely be worn over something highly pigmented. This could be the perfect every day minimal makeup lip gloss. I may just have to keep this one in my purse! J

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil

I’m not sure how I’m going to feel about this product. Like I mentioned above, I like the consistency of oils before I go to sleep because my skin gets pretty dry. I’ve never tried a primer that is very oily. I am a big fan of the Benefit Pore-fessional primer. I’ll definitely have to give it a try though. I’m just a little hesitant because I don’t want it to make my face too oily to where my makeup is sliding off my face! That is never a good look.

Perfectly Posh BFF Best Face Forever Exfoliating Daily Face Wash

I have finally settled into a face wash routine and I have seen so many improvements in the appearance of my face. I tried using an exfoliating face wash that said it could be used as a daily but after about 2 days I realized that was quickly untrue. It was very harsh and I broke out immediately. I still really enjoy the face wash so I only use it once a week. I was pretty excited to see that I got this in my bag this month. I’m excited to try it but I’m a little nervous because I really don’t want to break out again. This time I think I am going to slowly introduce it into my routine. I’ll start by every 3 days and then slowly work my way to daily. Hopefully I have better results because I really enjoy exfoliating my face.

I’m pretty excited for this month’s bag and I am going to do my very best at consistently using the products throughout the month.

If you have an Ipsy Subscription be sure to let me know what products you received in your bag!

Until next time,
