Unboxing: Ipsy, February 2016

 Price: $10.00 USD (plus $4.95 shipping to Canada) Number of items: 4-5 (plus a cute bag for each month).Ipsy is a monthly subscription service that introduces customers to new hair and beauty products. This month’s theme is Pretty in Ipsy Pink, which is a cute play on the amazing movie Pretty in Pink, and falls so perfectly with Valentines. This bag is super cute, I love the pixilated envelope design. 
Please note that all prices have been converted to Canadian Dollars.

What I Received:

1.Theorie Agran Hair Oil 

Full Size: $53.97 (100 mL), Sample Size: $5.40 (10 mL)
 
Another hair oil, this needs no explanation for what it does for the hair. I love the smell of these, I feel like it’s a great way to freshen up if you’re feeling like a little pick me up. Adding a nice smelling oil to your hair is like adding a little perfume, you can even dab a little on your wrist and behind your ears.

2.Ciate mini nail lacquer in My go to Red 

Sample Price: $10.00 (5 mL)
 I received a red nail lacquer in my Birchbox this month as well. The packaging on this is very cute, I love the bottle shape. I also really like the colour, this is a bit more opaque than the Color club I got in Birchbox so I may use this over that one. 

3.it Cosmetics – Bye Bye Undereye in Neutral Medium 

Full Size: $24.00 (8 mL), Sample Size: $9.75 (3.25 mL)
 This designed to be high coverage and has anti-aging ingredients including hydrolyzed collagen, and Vitamins C & K. I’m always on the hunt for new concealer because I have dark circles.  

4.ModelCo Lip Lacquer Lip Gloss in Morocco 

Full Size: $23.53 (15 mL), Sampe Size: $4.70 (3 mL)
 I’m so happy that I didn’t receive a red lip gloss! I like this dark beige because I feel that it would go really well with a more sultry look. I have not tried this yet, but the Ipsy website describes this as ultra moisturizing and highly pigmented. 

5.Tre’StiQue Baby Blush Stick in Bora Bora Coral 

 I’m not really into cream blushes becuase I feel like they don’t still well on top of my foundation. I received one from Brichbox that I was happy with because I felt like it would be nice for the beach, but getting another one really doesn’t make too much sense to me. Maybe I should give cream blush another try. This gives light but build able coverage

My Thoughts

I feel like because February is valentines, monthly boxes tend to send items that are pretty typical of that date (such has red lipsticks or nail polish and blushes) so I can’t really be too upset that these items are similar to Birchbox. I do like the concealer and the lip lacquer colour. Total Value of my box is $45.53.

  1. I’d love to hear about the It Cosmetics concealer! I’m ALWAYS on the hunt for good under eye concealers just like you! 😛
    I thought that Tre’StiQue Baby Blush Stick was a lip product haha. I’m terrible with remembering to use cream blushes.
    Your bag contents look really good – and that pouch design is TOO cute!

    • I know, I was so excited about the concealer. You know, the Rexall near my work had a sale on Maybelline’s Age Rewind concealer (it was $3.80!!!) I got it to try out but I heard it’s really good.

      That pouch design is one of my faves, except for last month which was Andy Warhol inspired.
