February Ipsy Glam Bag

Last month I posted my January Ipsy glam bag and I wanted to do another with this months bag. Here is what I got in my February Ipsy glam bag.

The first thing I pulled out of the bag was a baby blush stick by tre'StiQue in Bora Bora. I have another tre'StiQue item, a mini matte lip crayon. Not sure if I'll use the blush stick, but I know I haven't used the lip crayon. You can only buy the larger version which has a brush on the bottom, originally $34

The next item I pulled out was an Olivia Palermo x Ciaté London Nail Collection nail polish in Sundays - my off duty nude. I got the mini version in 0.17oz but you can buy the full 0.46oz version for $29 at Sephora.

Then I pulled out Cake Beauty heavy cream intensive hand repair balm. This is the first lotion I've gotten. It smells amazing, kind of like a mix between shea butter and vanilla. It has aloe, which I'm allergic to, but it's a small enough amount that it doesn't seem to be bothering me yet. I like this quite a bit. I got a 1oz bottle, you can buy a full 3.4oz bottle online only at Ulta.com for $22.

The next thing I pulled out was IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye® Anti-Aging Concealer. This is my first under eye concealer and I haven't tried it yet. I got a small 0.11oz tube but you can buy the 0.28oz tube on their website for $24.

The last item was VINTAGE by Jessica Liebeskind Sparkling Lipgloss in Pink Sequin. It goes on smoothly but it doesn't seem to have a lot of pigment. I actually prefer that, but it might be a turnoff for some people. My only problem with it is that it feels sticky. I'm not a fan of sticky lip glosses. I have the 0.14oz tube and you can buy the full tube on the website for $21.

That's my February Glam bag, and I'm pretty happy with what I got. I thought it was going to suck because it's a pink month but honestly it wasn't bad. The lipgloss has such a light tint that it mostly looks sparkly, and the nail polish is so pale it hardly looks pink. I can't wait to try the under eye concealer!

If I bought all five items retail, I would have paid $130. Granted, I do get small sample sizes, but I still think it's well worth it!
