Beauty Wise Wednesday: March Ipsy Bag review

It's that time again! Another month and it's time to tell you guys what I thought of the March Ipsy Bag.

First of all the bag. I really loved the pattern! It's a fun nautical theme colored blue and white. I didn't like that it seemed like a weird thin material but maybe that is so it is good to bring to the beach. I will defiantly be using this bag this summer.

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.
My Thoughts: I really enjoy this product. I used it everyday after getting out of the shower before putting on my face lotion. It does have a strong scent but I found it fresh and invigorating in the morning. I felt like it really made a difference in the condition of my skin. It has felt much smoother day to day. Normally my skin would start to feel rough like it needed a good exfoliation by the end of the week buy I think this product really helps with that feeling.

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.
My Thoughts: I have been wanting to get on of these because it is so much less expensive to by the inserts for this rather than a full eye shadow or blush. The only real compliant I have is that the Coastal Scents eye shadows we got in the past bag aren't magnetized so I wasn't able to put those in there.

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.
My Thoughts: These were nice quality wipes, but nothing too exciting. the wipe was soft when at times i might want one with a bit more scrub to it. I also didn't see any improvement on the ability to remove eye make up than any other face wipe. (sorry no picture cause I used all the wipes and threw away the package, it is in the picture on my March open bag blog)

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.
My Thoughts: I got two very different shades and their pigmentation was just as varied. "So Vein" was a beautiful teal green color with tons of pigment. A little went a long way. "Sand Dune" on the other hand had very little pigmentation. I would work very hard to get color onto my lids and had very little pay off. This brand might be a bit iffy due to the fact that you don't know how pigmented a color you buy will be, but at the low cost it might be worth a shot for the more colorful eye shadows.

Overall I was happy with the bag even though it didn't blow my socks off. I'm not sure if I would be running to the store to buy any of the products but I enjoyed using them all this month.

Can't wait to get the next bag in a day or two and share it with you guys next week!
