Beauty Wise Wednesday: March Ipsy Bag

Got my Ipsy bag actually a week ago but I had to do my review blog before I did my reveal for the new bag (duh)

The bag this month is a very fun anchor/rope/strip print in navy blue and white. It is for sure my favorite bag I have gotten so far. Great way to start the water front strolling season. ( I don't have a boat so I just admire while walking by)

Product #1: Juice Beauty Hydrating mist 1 fl oz worth $3.25 (based on the 6.75 oz cost of $22) 20% off coupon code Product description: Tone with this refreshing blend of rosehip, ylang ylang, resveratrol grapeseed oil and antioxidant-rich organic juices for a fresh complexion. First impression: I have a friend who said she thinks it stinks but I don't really have a problem with the smell. When I sprayed it on my face it felt/smelled fresh to me. I'm excited to try something I would NEVER would have bought but maybe it will be a new fav.

Product #2: Glam Rx Z palette $8.25. This isn't the full palette they sell on the website for $16.50 so I figured that this was approximately half the value. 20% off coupon code  Product description: This is a small magnetic palette that holds eye shadows that don't come in their own case (I don't know the technical term for those) It is about 3.5 in by 2.5 in and has a mirror.  First Impression: This is something I'm very excited about. I actually had been thinking about getting one of these magnetic palettes so that I could buy just the eye shadow insert things.

Product #3: LA Fresh Makeup Remover wipes $3.36. They sell these in a box of 48 singles for $19.99 so I figured what 8 are worth. 30% off coupon code Product description: Instantly dissolves even heavy duty makeup with silky, lite-touch formula. First impression: I guess you could say they smell like baby wipes but that doesn't bother me. The wipe its self is soft and durable.

Product #4: Yaby eye shadow, two colors $6.30. I don't know the exact size we got but they look similar to the one's on the web site for $3.15 each. 25% off coupon code Product description: I got "sand dune" a matte tan color and "so vein" a teal greenish color. First impression: excited that I got a neutral along with a color. I'm excited to try out the teal which is very pigmented. The tan on the other hand seems a bit more difficult to get color from.

Total Value= $21.16 plus the bag... Almost half the value the past two bags were.

Over all I can understand how some people might be disappointed with this months bag. Luckily I don't have many beauty products so anything is exciting for me and it's still worth more than double what I paid.
