As always, this is one of my favorite times of the month….I love getting this bag in the mail! As I’ve always said, this is the best bag out there, especially for such a low price. If you are looking to start a beauty subscription, I would definitely try Ipsy first. $10 for everything including shipping? You can’t really beat that!
The theme of this month’s bag is “Flower Power,” which seems like a great theme, but honestly I don’t see how a single item I received (except for the bag) matches it!
So here it is…the March Ipsy bag!
1) Dr. Brandt Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion – .25 oz.
I have a moisturizer that I love, but it doesn’t hurt to have small tubes like this for travel. I
like the mattifying solution, but I would never, ever pay $60 for a full size amount of this.
Full Size: $60.00 for 1.7 oz. My Value: $8.82
2) Marsk Mineral Eye Shadow in “Fifty Shades” – .04 oz.
This is a bit too dark for me. I also kind of hate that they are trying to play off the whole 50
shades of Grey thing that is so popular right now, it makes me not like it even more. There is
nothing to complain about though, other than I wouldn’t pay that price for it. I rather get a
full size shadow from MAC for that price!
Full Size: $12.00 My Value: $12.00
3) Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Crème Oil – 1 oz.
This seems like a lot of products in one. I like trying things like this on my hair, but I haven’t
had a chance to yet. I hope it isn’t to heavy or greasy. My hair does not do well with things
Full Size: $22.95 for 4.2 oz. My Value: $5.46
4) NYX Butter Lipstick in “Pops” – .16 oz. (FULL SIZE)
I think this is the third Butter Lipstick I’ve gotten in a beauty box. Enough with this already. I wish this stuff truly were like butter, but it is so drying on my lips I just can’t use it. The color doesn’t look too bad though, I almost could have used it!
Full Size: $6.00 My Value: $6.00
5) Evelyn Iona Concealer – .55 oz. – (FULL SIZE?)
This packaging has nothing on it except for the brand name. I had to do a lot of digging to find out what it is (concealer) and I still can’t figure out the size. Ipsy says it’s .55 oz. which makes sense, but the website says a full size version of this is 3g. If I convert, that makes the one I got 15 g which makes no sense. There is no way this is 5x the size of the regular version. Due to all that math confusion, I am highly annoyed by this product and their lack of brand/product awareness that I don’t even care for it. I haven’t even tried the product yet. Plus, I hate concealers in containers like this. I can’t stick my finger in it without getting it all over me!
Full Size: $18.75? My Value: $18.75?
Final Cost: $10.00
Final Value: $51.03
This bag was a bit lackluster for me, but it wasn’t terrible. I will definitely be getting use out of several of the items. I wish it introduced me to some new, exciting items, but it seems more like the “same old thing” in terms of beauty bags this month.
