Ipsy, March 2015

This will be last Ipsy bag as I canceled it in March.  I just found I wasn't using barely anything if anything at all that I received.  I haven't been really excited about them for quite a while now.  I still think it is a good deal for someone just starting out in makeup and figuring out what they like, I just never seemed to receive samples that worked for my skin type and coloring.  I did love it when I got brushes though!  The price has jumped as well for us Canadians as well with the dropping Canadian dollar, mine was almost $19 CAD, a little pricey when you don't use most of it.

Here is a picture of my Ipsy bag for March.

Ipsy March 2015

In my bag I received:

  • Pur-lisse Beauty - pur-delicate gentle soy milk cleanser and makeup remover.  I have not used this yet but plan on using this next in the shower.
  • Pixi by Petra - Mesmerizing Mineral Duo in Apricot Glow. I have tried this and they are nice colors.  They applied well with little fall out and lasted fairly well.  I would buy more of these f I could find them in store.
  • Equitance - brightening serum and spot corrector.  I have not tried this yet and am unsure if I will.  I don't really have any dark spots but may try it for brightening.
  • NYX Cosmetics - Butter Lipstick in Pops.  This is a nice lipstick but I didn't find that the color looked great on me.  I liked how creamy it was going on and it decent lasting power, I may try to find this in another shade.
  • Evelyn Iona Cosmetics - Concealer in Flawless (medium Ivory).  I have tried this as a spot concealer and did not find it worked that great and faded fairly quickly.  I did not even try this on my under eyes as it is not the type of concealer I would use on my under eyes as it is thick.  I have read online that others have used it as a brow bone hilight, I may try it for that.

Not a bad bag but sadly nothing that I am that excited about.  I am glad that I have cancelled Ipsy as like I said I am not really using anything in it.  I have signed up for Birchbox and have received the March box.  I will review my box next week.

Have you been receiving Ipsy or Birchbox?  Are you enjoying your box?
