Ipsy Review - March

Ipsy time!

I love getting this bag in the mail! For the price that doesn’t break the budget ($10 including shipping), it is a great deal and you get a little beauty treat each month.  Sometimes they are a complete hit, sometimes a few products are a miss, but it’s always worth at least what I paid regardless!
The theme of this month’s bag is “Hello Spring” and comes in an adorable orangey bag with a rose type pattern on it. I love it! The products are pretty dark to me to be “spring” like, but maybe they just happen to be the colors I got.
Next up…the March Ipsy bag!
1) Mellow Cosmetics Blush in “Bronze” – .16 oz. (FULL SIZE)
Blush two months in a row? Boo.  This color looks a little dark to me; it seems more like a bronzer than a blush.  I prefer rosier or more coral type shades.
Full Size: $10.00 My Value: $10.00

2) Beau Gachis Eyebrow Brush – FULL SIZE
I’m not sure how to use this as an eyebrow brush, I may use it as an eyeliner brush instead!
Full Size: $12.00 My Value: $12.00

3) Essence Make Me Brow in “browny brows” – .12 oz. (FULL SIZE)
I don’t do my brows very often since you can’t really see them because of my bangs. If I do my brows, it’s pretty much a waste of product. My first thought when I saw this was how cheap it probably is.  I remember seeing this brand in Ulta and everything was close to $1.
Full Size: $2.99 My Value: $2.99

4)  NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in “Softspoken” – .13 oz (FULL SIZE)
I ‘m not a huge fan of this. It is a little dark for my liking and it is very drying. I put it over a cream lipstick I already had on (well remnants of it) and it feels sooooo dry instantly! Bummer. This only thing I like it that it is very thin and not heavy feeling.
Full Size: $7.00 My Value: $7.00

5)  Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Spray Volume Mist – 1.4 oz.
Wow, this stuff seems to do a lot. It’s a “Caviar Anti-Aging Miracle Multiplying Volume Mist.” Say that three times fast!! I honestly can’t imagine I’d really notice a difference in my hair when using this stuff, I’d only be hoping it was doing what it was supposed to! The good thing about it is it has a lovely citrusy clean scent. I’d spray it on my hair just for that!
Full Size: $28.00 for 4.8 oz. My Value: $8.16

Final Cost: $10.00
Final Value: $40.15

This month’s bag is a total miss for me.  Not that Ipsy knows my hairstyle, but I am bummed two of the products are brow products that I won’t get use out of. I can’t fault them for that though. I use both blush and lip gloss, but I don’t like the shades of those that were included this month, so I won’t be using them.  The only thing that can save this is the magical hair mist, but I am not holding high hopes for it since I don’t use many hair products.

What are your thoughts?

Noah - Month 10

I can't believe my little man is passing 10 months old!  I feel like it is just yesterday he joined our family.  I was always told "they grow so fast," but man it is really the truth! 

Noah got a couple more teeth this month on the top, giving him a total of 4.  Funny thing is they are not the middle teeth.  He looks like a little vampire!

He is 28 inches tall and 16.1 pounds, but I am going to guess he ended the month closer to 17 pounds!  He seems to be getting bigger by the day.  He is crawling like crazy and loves to pull himself to a standing position.  He is VERY observant and watches everything!  He loves to explore!

This month he went to the park for the first time and went down his first slide and got into a swing for the first time. He loved the swing, but not so much the slide!  We also got him dedicated at church on the 4 year anniversary of the day mommy and daddy met. It was perfect timing!

At the park!

First time on a slide...he didn't love it.

First taste of dirt....nom nom.

First time on a swing....he loved it!


Watching basketball with daddy

Bubble bath time!

Dedication day with grammy and grandpa

Looking sharp in his suit!


I love this pic, his shirt says "My daddy" and it is C's football number

Being mischievous and getting into a box

"I own the night" is the full truth.  He is still not doing so great at sleeping!!

10 month smiles!
