February Ipsy Bag

 I just got my February Ipsy bag exceptionally early! How early? Well, I don't see anyone else that's gotten it yet, the website isn't updated with product info and coupon codes, and I never even got a shipping email. The theme of this month's bag is "Get Red Carpet Ready". Each bag contained five deluxe samples, and as usual sells for $10/month. Let's take a peek at this months bag. Btw, I'll update it with coupon codes when I can.
 The bag this month is made of a super shiny patent material, which I usually love, but this one is not cute. Mine arrived looking a little dirty, fingerprints and specks of dust all over it, which of course was only exacerbated when I pulled it out of the pouch and every kind of animal hair was immediately drawn to it. The inside is read with the Ipsy logo tag sew in. Bag is a nice size and stuff, this just isn't my favorite.
 Lash Cards - 4pk ($2.80 est value), full size 10pk - $7.

I don't want Lash Cards. Lots of sub boxes give them out and they always seem like total filler to me. I'll still try them out, but it seems silly to include these. Each card is supposedly one time use, and are double sided, so you get 8 uses out of this little packet. Not too bad. 

The Claims:
Lucky for you, Lash Card is here to the rescue! These patented Lash Cards are individually wrapped, easy to use and disposable - which is important for good makeup hygiene. Use at home or slip into your clutch for when you're on-the-go to create those irresistible lashes.

 Pixi Beauty Flawless&Poreless Primer - Deluxe Sample 15ml - $14.50, Full Size 30ml - $29

The last Pixi Primer I tried was not very good at all, it made me look ill! This one doesn't seem to have  the same intense gold shine to it though, so I'm excited to try it. Pixi products have always appealed to me, I always stop and look at their pretty spring green packaging and delicate colors when I take a trip through my Target's Cosmetic section, but everything is more expensive than I'm willing to splurge on. This sample seems small, but it's actually half the size of a full size.

The Claims:
Primer creates a seamless, silky canvas with a beautiful no-shine, cashmere finish. The formula's skin-loving ingredients clear and unblock pores to allow for utterly flawless, long-lasting makeup application. It is the perfect skin primer for all complexions and all skin types. Pore minimizing. Shine controlling. Hydrating. Oil free. Hypoallergenic. For all skin types.

 Mica Beauty Gel Eyeliner - $30 Full Size

I believe this is a full size product, but I'm not entirely sure. It's packaged differently than it is on the website, where it appears to have an included brush. I'm already dedicated to my Essence Gel Eyeliner, but I'm willing to give this liner a go as well. I got this eyeliner in black, I'm not sure if there's any color variation. 

The Claims:
Micabeauty Ultra Smooth Gel Eyeliners make it easy for anyone to apply eyeliner without dealing with smudges, uneven lines, or fading. These Gel Eyeliners include 5 highly pigmented colors perfect for any occasion and are sure to last longer than regular eyeliners.

 Coastal Scents Hot Pot Eyeshadow Quad - Sample Size - $2~

We received one of these quads back in October and I absolutely loved mine, so I'm pleased to get another. The quality of the last quad was great. My only slight disappointment is that these colors are no where near as interesting as the ones I got in October. I got the shades Candlelight, Gunmetal, Incognito, and Ashen. Not sure if there are color variations. 

The Claims:

To customize your palette, choose from our collection of 377 Hot Pots available in a variety of shades and finishes that are ideal for every skin tone.

Pop Beauty Smokey Lash Ka-Pow! Mascara - Deluxe Sample $9~, Full Size $18.50
Pop Beauty isn't really a brand that ever interested me, I'd browse their displays at Ulta, but never had any real interest in trying anything. I'm always game to try any mascara that comes my way though, so this is by far the most exciting sample in the bag for me. 

The Claims:
Plump up your lashes to give them a sultry look to add to your smokey eye effect. In addition to the beauty benefits, Lash Ka Pow!! contains Vitamin E to promote lash health. Tested by Opthamologists. Fragrance Free. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Waterproof until you are ready to remove it. Shade is deep black.

The Offer:
20% off Pop Beauty. Code Unavailable


Total Estimated Bag Value:
$58.30 

Great value for $10! However, I'm not super excited about this bag, aside from the mascara and primer. The samples also seemed much smaller than usual this month, but I may have just been spoiled by last month's bag! What do you think of February's Ipsy bag?

  1. wow, you got your bag really early. I haven't seen any other Feb bags on the website yet. I heard a lot of great reviews about the Coastal Scents eye shadow palettes and dying to try them out. Colors on your palette are very pretty and wearable.

    1. I got my shipping confirmation for it yesterday! A little late for that, huh? And I'm definitely not thrilled about the lash cards either, I could do that with a not card or something.

    1. It was kinda shocking how early my bag was! But I totally agree. I don't love everything, but the value is there, and the products are a good variety. I would've loved that quad :(
