Is January’s Ipsy bag worth all the hype?

January Ipsy US

My January Ipsy bag finally landed in my mailbox today!
Keep in mind that Ipsy bags are $10 a month with free shipping to the US.

Let’s get into what all they selected for me this month.

Mica Beauty cosmetics – Tinted lip balm in #6 Fiesta
Briogeo – Don’t Despair, Repair! deep conditioning mask
Proactive+ – Mark Fading Pads
Nourish Organic – Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion
Elizabeth Mott – Smooth Shadow in Pearl

Mica Beauty cosmetics
We’ve received several different products from this brand and so far, I haven’t been enticed to use any of them.  This lip balm included.  I’m not a potted lip balm type of person, but if you are then you may like this one.
It’s not like any other tinted lip balm that I’ve seen because this one is SUPER pigmented.  It’s mauve in color and it’s semi matte to me.  I’ll most likely give this to my daughter or put it in my box of goodies that I don’t use and may do a giveaway with all the items in there.  I don’t want all of it just collecting dusk.
I couldn’t find this exact product on their website but the other lip balms are $14.95

Ipsy January's

Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow
Also included in this months bag is a Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow in the color Pearl.
Finally something out of this bag that I’ll use.  This is a very nice shimmery pearl color that glides on smooth.  For me, I had to swipe it twice to get the pigmentation that I like.  It’s a gel pencil that stays in place!
The cost is $14.99.
With that cost, I don’t think I would repurchase.  I’ll use it up until it’s gone though.

proactiv +
This is the 1st time that I’ve seen proactiv in an Ipsy bag.  I don’t care for proactiv products because when I thought my little monthly breakouts were bad, (They seriously weren’t) I used the proactiv set and of course the purging of all things nasty came about!  Then I totally freaked!  Stopped that mess!  Regardless what they say, “It always gets worse before it gets better.” this chic was not having that!
They included four (4) proactiv + Mark Fading Pads.
A pack of 15 pads is $41!!!
What! Are they mad? They done lost their minds!
Nope, not me, I wouldn’t pay that much money for that!

Briogeo
Don’t Despair, Repair! deep conditioning mask 10z
This is another item that I’ll try!  I’ll try about anything when it comes to a good hair conditioning mask.  I’ve put my hair through some serious dye jobs throughout my life.  I need to make sure I always have it nourished.
It has a light pleasant scent to it.
A full size jar is 5.25 oz’s for $26.
So, this 1 oz jar equals to $4.95 and I can see this being a good 3-4 applications.  I have super long hair.

Nourish Organic
Nourish Organic Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion 0.5 oz’s is the last product in the bag.
As you can imagine, if you’ve been following my posts, is that I’ve been in search of a good face moisturizer.  So, this will be in with the rest of the face moisturizers that I’m going to try.
Cost: $6.51
We shall see if it’s really deserves that price.

Well, for all 5 products the cost of this whole bag is:
$52.34

Not bad for a monthly cost of $10.

Until next time Dolls

What did you get in your bags this month?
Do share!

  1. I got the exact same bag as you, and I pretty much agree with your thoughts. I’m really liking the pearl pencil though! Too bad I just cut my hair really short, so the mask is no longer needed.

What's on YOUR Beautiful mind today?
