MONTHLY BEAUTY BAG : February 2014 Ipsy Bag!

Hello lovies. I know I skipped over January's Ipsy Bag, but to be honest, it sucked for me, & I wasn't happy with everything I got... & then the February Bag came. When I checked my Glam Room on the Ipsy website & saw that these were the items I was going to be receiving, I was super happy.

Let's get into the contents of the bag, shall we?

This month, I received 5 products total, 3 being full sized, 2 deluxe samples.

First up is City Color's Be Matte Blush in the shade Fresh Melon. By far the brightest blush I own to date. 

It's a beautiful, bright pink. It's much brighter in person & the color payoff was something I didn't expect.

This is a small swatch on my hands that I did with my fingers. I used a blush brush for application & WOW, this brush is super bright! I have to be extremely careful with how much I actually use on my cheeks or I'll have neon pink cheeks.

I literally just have to use the smallest amount on my cheeks to have a nice flush of color.

Full size retails $2.99 for 8.9g.
You are getting the full size.

I have always loved nail polish, so I was pleased to get a full sized Zoya polish in my bag this month. The name of this polish is called Dot, & it's a pretty baby pink. I wasn't able to swatch this on my nails, but I assume this will take more than 2 coats to become opaque. I love my pinks!

Full size retails $9 for 0.5fl oz.

If you're familiar with Nailtini, as Ipsy has given us a few in our bags, this Eyetini Cordial Cream Shadow + Base in One. This is basically a 2 in 1 eye product. I received the color Ambrosia. 

It has a bit of sparkley-metallic give off that would make a wonderful shadow base.

You can see the sparkles better here. The shadow isn't as opaque on the eye unless you use a good amount of it. I only used about a dot or two.

Full size retails $18 for 0.14oz.

I received a deluxe sample of IPKN NY Moist & Firm BB Cream. I love my BB Creams. 

I read online that it has collagen in it. I love makeup with collagen! I got this in the shade light, which I assumed would be too dark for my skin.

You can barely see the color here, but in regular lighting, it seemed not to match the skin of my hand as well as it did on my face. I really like this BB Cream.

It blended quite well into my natural skin tone. Also, the BB cream was very easy to apply.

Full size retails $35 for 1.30z.
The sample is 0.05oz & is worth about $7.

I'm not a huge gloss fan. Not even in the least. However, this Pop Beauty Plump Pout Mini is such a pretty color that I actually enjoy wearing it. It's not too sticky at all.

It comes with your standard doe foot applicator.

I received the color Peony Petal. I didn't think I would like the color as much as I did, bc I wanted the other one, which is named Fuschia Freesia. It's a much brighter pink than this, but I am pleased with the color pay off.

Full size retails $16 for 3oz. 
This sample is 4g & is worth about $1.15.

The Ipsy subscription service is $10 per month.
This bags total comes to $38.14!

Pretty good for this month. I'm very happy with all the items I got this month.

I decided to start taking photos with all the items applied to my face, besides the polish, LOL.

Hope you've enjoyed this review!
Have a wonderful day <3
