January Ipsy Bag

Alright y’all! Ipsy bag time! I’m pretty excited about this months products. There’s a few brands that I’ve tried before and some newbies. Let’s jump right in!

Initial thoughts..this color looks beautiful! I love a lip stain but they usually dry out my lips. Just by swatching it on my hand, it is so smooth and creamy! It did dry down and has stayed put on my hand. I’m really interested to see how this holds up on the lips. I’m ready to put this through the ringer to see how it holds up!

By now, yall know that I love a good mask but, I’m usually not a fan of anything that exfoliates my face. I just find that that the exfoliants are too rough for my facial skin but I will give this one a try. It says that it’s a gentle and good for sensitive skin so maybe it won’t be too rough for me. It is made with kaolin clay, coconut and avocado oils, and Vitamin C. This masque is designed to purify pores, absorb excess oils, nourish, and get skin glowing. We’ll see! I have two other masks that I’m trying to use up so I’ll be adding this into the rotation soon.

Serums have become a staple item in my skincare routine over the past couple years. I’m currently using one by Burt’s Bees and I really love it but I’m interested to give this one a try. This serum has argan stem cells that are designed to hydrate the skin and provide the skin with vitamins and minerals. It is supposed to help with how the skin regenerates as well as restore firmness and elasticity. This all sounds great to me! I’m excited to try it out.

I’ve tried Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics before so I’m excited to try this shadow out. There were two color options that were sent out, bikini or Sangria. Out of the two, I’m definitely happy with getting Bikini, it’s a more wearable color for me. The Sangria shade looked beautiful but was not a color I tend to gravitate towards for daily looks. Bikini is a beautiful bronze metallic shimmer that will be beautiful for summer! Excited to add this into my make up collection. The formula feels so smooth and buttery. It looks like it will be a great for blending and will have very little fall out!

YESSSSSSSSSS!!! I LOVE the Mary-Lou Manizer! I had this before I used every last bit that I could scrape out of the pan. I’m so excited to have another one! This a gorgeous warm honey highlight that looks great on the eye, cheekbones, down the nose…anywhere that you want to highlight, you can’t go wrong with this. It has a slight shimmer but not too much and is just one of the most perfect highlighters on the market. If you need a highlighter, this one is fantastic.


Overall, I’m pretty happy with this month’s bag. I’m always excited to get skincare and got products from some great brands! Keep checking back to see how these products check out!
