January 2016 Ipsy


How many of you get Ipsy each much?  I feel like 90% of the female population would raise their hands, maybe even more.  Who doesn’t love seeing that pink, shiny package in their mailbox?! I love getting my goodies each and every month.  Some months are great, some months suck, and some are just so so.  BUT, it lets me try out a slew of makeup and beauty products, branch out of my confront zone, and is only $10 a month!

If you haven’t signed up and are interested just go to Ipsy! It’s quick, simple, and easy.

This month my 5 products were:

  1. Trestique Mini Matte Lip Crayon in Florence Fig
  2. The Balm Mr. Write (Now) eyeliner pencil in Jac
  3. Ofra eyebrow pencil in Universal
  4. City Color eyeshadow trio in Falling Leaves
  5. Aveeno Daily Moisturizing lotion



From top to bottom this is the:

  1. Trestique lip crayon
  2. The Balm eyeliner
  3. Ofra eyebrow pencil


Trestique Lip Crayon in Florence Fig

Let me just say, I love this lip crayon! I own another by this brand and I really love it to!  They are easy to apply, stay on the lips, pigmented, and they smell great! I also have 2 of the minis in Chile Red.  (I believe they came in the November 2015 Ipsy.)


Full size this product will run you $28 and comes with a lip balm.  You can get it off of the Trestique website.


The Balm Mr. Write (Now) eyeliner pencil in Jac

I have a few shadows by The Balm, but I have never ventured into their eyeliners.  I’m picky about eyeliners, I love my Urban Decay and I love my Benefit, I do not stray too often from them.  ALSO, I would never typically by a coppery/gold color!  BUT, I will admit this is very pretty.  Will I wear it everyday, probably not.  But, it will get used.  This stuff goes on easy, lasts, doesn’t smudge, but I wouldn’t buy it in this color again. Now if it was black, gray, or brown; I would totally do it!

I won’t lie, I love most of The Balm’s names and packaging.  They are funny and cleaver. I’ve been impressed with their eyeshadow as well! Anyway, you can purchase this eyeliner on The Balm’s website.  They have 8 different colors and it will cost $17.


Ofra Eyebrow Pencil in Universal

I won’t lie, this is what I was the most excited about and the most disappointed in! People rave about their liquid lipsticks, which I haven’t tried out, yet. Sooooo I was super excited to try out something of theirs! Boyyyyyy did this product blow! This pencil is called Universal because it is suppose to be universal for everyone.  The color is great, for me, but I think it would be way too dark on a fair skin, blonde person.  Also, when putting this on all it did was cake up and make a sticky mess. I literally felt like I had rubbed honey all over my eyebrows! I will not be buying this and I would not recommend it!

However, if you want to try it, you can get it at the Ofra website and it will cost you $13 for a stick of brown eyebrow honey.


City Color Eyeshadow Trio in Falling Leaves

I won’t lie, I dislike getting eyeshadow in my Ipsy about 90% of the time.  I love my Urban Decay and they usually just can’t even compare. Anyway, I did not have high hopes or high expectations in this trio and I wasn’t surprised when the pigmentation sucked and it easily brushed off.



The brown was the only decent color in the 3.  The matte, brunt orange color brushed off with one stroke.  The pale nude color lasted maybe 2 minutes.  The brown colors lasted longer, but it also had a lot of fall out and drifted on my eyelids.  I tried these with and without primer.  I would not recommend these and I will not be purchasing them.  However, if you want to give them a whirl (and waste your money) you can get it on the City Colors website for $5.99. But please, don’t waste your money!


Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion

I honestly don’t feel like there is a lot to say about this.  I like Aveeno.  I like lotion.  I love small lotions that I can throw in my purse.  This will definitely get used and it will probably be purchased again in my future.  I’m always buying lotion.  You can get this lotion anywhere! CVS, Wal-Mart, Target, Ulta, Amazon.


So that’s it for my Janaury Ipsy bag!  This post was suppose to be up yesterday, but that just didn’t happen.  Let me know what you get in your Ipsy and if you liked it or not! Also, I would love to hear from you!  Feel free to leave me a comment or email me!
