Ipsy | February 2014 “The Look of Love”

I won’t even apologize. Just expect these beauty box posts to be a little late! There have just been too many awesome products to share with you all over the last couple of weeks! February’s Ipsy was pretty cool so I won’t keep you all in suspense!

City Color | Be Matte Blush in Fresh Melon

DSC_0522

Available in 4 shades, this silky-smooth, highly pigmented matte blush compliments and blends evenly with your skin's natural glow. Extremely buildable to create a subtle or dramatic look. ipsy subscribers who receive this product will receive Fresh Melon, Blackberry, Dragonfruit, or Toasted Coconut.

Thoughts: Wow, this blush is MUCH cheaper than I thought it would be considering how large it is! Fresh Melon is a very light peach-coloured blush and as the name states as no shimmer to it whatsoever. Seriously, I can’t get over that this blush is only $3!

Full size: 8.9g/$2.99

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Pop Beauty | Plump Pout Mini in Peony Petal

This plumping pout perfector combines the high-shine of a lacquered gloss with the long wear of a stain and is packed full of lip-plumping peptides and avocado and jojoba oils. Lightweight, creamy texture immediately merges with lips & delivers intense glossy color for an extremely long-lasting finish!
ipsy subscribers who receive this product will receive Peony Petal or Fuschia Freesia.

Thoughts: The swatches for these look AMAZING. I will be honest and say that I still have mine all sealed up just because I’m not sure if I’m going to be gifting this to someone. It looks like a great gloss though and I’m never disappointed with anything from Pop Beauty.

Full size: 8.5g/$16.00

I received: 4g/$7.53

NuMe | Intense Renewal Hair Mask

Unleash levels of moisture that make hair more resistant to breakage from future styling and color treatments with the protective properties of NuMe’s Intense Renewal Mask. Your hair will show drastic improvement and superior results after the first treatment. With a special blend of powerful ingredients, the restorative and rejuvenating effects of the Intense Renewal Mask will leave hair feeling replenished, and alive.

Thoughts: After receiving countless 50% off coupons for NuMe products in the old Glymm boxes, I got really turned off by NuMe just because the constant coupons really de-valued their prices for me. Their products are so expensive, but they hand out these coupons like candy. Too much discounting = de-valuation of product.

Full size: 177mL/$29.99

I received: 20mL/$3.39

Tini Beauty | Eyetini Eye Cordial Shadow Tint & Base in Spiced Rum

DSC_0525

Say goodbye to creasing and fading with Eyetini Eye Cordial Shadow Tint & Base. Eye Cordial's revolutionary formula glides on beguiling creamy color and sets to a transfer-resistant finish that doubles as a wear-extending base under powder shadow. ipsy subscribers who receive this product will receive Spiced Rum, Violette (an ipsy exclusive!), or Ambrosia.

Thoughts: I just realized that we have received a number of nail polishes from this company already and this is the first makeup product that we have received so yay! This eye shadow is just STUNNING. I had to swatch on my hand and wow is it ever smooth and PIGMENTED. Holy mother. Once the colour sets, it’s pretty much staying there. Impressive!

Full size: 0.14oz/$18.00

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Zoya | Nail Polish Odette

DSC_0526

This season's Zoya Nail polish are full of pure pigment, intense color and modern complexity that are a perfect transition into Spring.
ipsy subscribers who receive this product will receive Odette or Dot.

Thoughts: No one can resist a Zoya polish including a polish ho like me. Odette is a dusty purple creme that I will bling the crap out of with nail art as I cannot leave a creme all alone!

Full size: 15mL/$9.00

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Total Value of February Ipsy Bag: $40.91

I love that eye shadow so much I am contemplating using the Ipsy offer (which I think might be expired now) and paying that Canadian shipping just to have ALL OF THE COLOURS. I also really liked getting the nail polish and blush so in general this bag was a win for me!

This is my ipsy referral link if you so choose to use it!
