Ipsy February 2016 || Pretty in Pink

I actually got my Ipsy bag earlier than when the tracking said that I would which was cool because I hate waiting and actually used a few of the products over the weekend. Since February means Valentine's Day this month's bag and theme was represented in that way.

I think the bag is cute for what it represents with it being an envelope on one side and solid hot pink on the other. Honestly, I would have been happier and would probably get more use out of it had the whole thing been the solid pink but that's just me.

This month I received:

Chella - Lipstick Pencil Passionate Pink - .04oz
Full size is $18
The packaging makes it seem like it's an orange shade but it is super pink. While the color is flatterning on me, I am not a fan of the formula as it is one that smears all over the place and the coverage is wonky since it does move around and leaves bare spots. 

Smashbox Cosmetics - Photo Finish Primer Oil - .13oz
Full size is $42

Jersey Shore Cosmetics - Anti Aging Lip & Hand Polish - Vanilla Bean - 1oz
This is the full-size and is retailed at $25
This stuff smells so good and reminds me of yummy baked goods. I thought that it was going to be a clear or white cream but it's actually a yellowish brown liquid which I found interesting. 

Luxie Beauty - Small Tapered Blending Eye Brush 231
Retailed at $12
I love getting brushes in my bags and especially this brand. In one of my previous bags I received the regular size tapered blending brush and use it every time I do my makeup. 

Naked Cosmetics - Mica Pigment - Sierra Nevada #02 - .05oz
Retailed at $14.99
While loose pigments are super messy, at least for me since I end up getting them everywhere, I love using them. I look to do a matte eye and then add some kind of shimmer to brighten everything up. I actually used this on Saturday along with another loose pigment that I ended up spilling into one of my makeup drawers.
