Ipsy Beauty Bag Subscription “Ipsy Love” February 2015 with Video #ipsy

ipsy february 2015

This is my newest Ipsy bag!  This is the February 2015 bag.  I got my bag on time, I am just late getting it posted up.  My internet has been very laggy and intermittent this past week so I have been too afraid to start on much until our service provider fixed the issues.  Anyway, this month’s theme is “Ipsy Love”.  I love the bag.  It’s actually one of my favorites.  The design is really pretty with pink, white and gray.  So what was in my bag?  Check it out below!

What’s in the bag?

  • Eva NYC Up All Night Volumizing Spray (deluxe) $3.00
  • Mitchell and Peach Fine Radiance Face Oil (deluxe) $15.00
  • City Color Cosmetics Creamy Lip Stain (full) $4.99
  • Model Co Blush Cheek Powder (mini) $10.00
  • Emite Make Up Professional Eye Lash Curler (obviously full size) $25.00

Approximate total value $57.99

I did the best I could with the deluxe sample size products.  Doing my math, I compared them to the full size products. I got the value of the curler from their brand website however, I did see the same curler on amazon for $14.00.


Eva NYC Up All Night Volumizing Spray – Honestly I didn’t even try this product so I can’t say much about it.  It’s nothing against the brand or product, it’s just that I really don’t have much of a need for it.  It does smell pretty nice though.  I will most likely give it to my sister since I don’t really have a use for it.  Full Size 8 fl oz for $24.00.

Mitchell and Peach Face Oil – I really didn’t really care to receive this product but since I got it, I thought I would try it anyway.  Since I just got my bag a little over a week ago, I have really only used it a few times.  I still haven’t seen anything different in my skin or anything but it does make my skin feel soft.  I sometimes use it at night and sometimes alone or underneath a face moisturizer.  There isn’t really a scent to it and even though it’s an oil, it doesn’t make my skin feel or look oily like I thought it would.  I will continue to use it to see if I notice a difference.  The deluxe sample that I got is almost half the full size and you don’t need that much product so I think I will get plenty of uses out of it.  Full Size .67 oz for $30.00.

Emite Professional Eye Lash Curler – I was really excited to get this curler.  Mainly because the one I already had needed replaced.  This curler surprisingly has a little weight to it.  It’s easy to use and it’s also comfortable to use.  It comes with replacement pads too.  I really like it, I think it curls my lashes really well with or without mascara! Value $25.00.


Model Co Blush Cheek Powder – absolutely love it!  It’s literally like a pressed powder.  It blends really well and the color is very easy to control.  The color that I got is Cosmopolitan and it’s a really light pink color.  It is pigmented well and has great color.  I love that it doesn’t go on too dark.  The pink is a perfect color for my skin tone.  Just enough blush to barely notice (unless I want to be more noticeable).  Perfect! Full Size .12 oz for $22.00.

City Color Cosmetics Creamy Lip Stain – absolutely love this product too!  The color that I got is Flirtini and it’s a pink color that is a little dark but not too dark for me.  I think the color is great, pigmented really well.  It is shiny and glossy which is awesome because usually a stain is just a stain without gloss and I end up adding a gloss on top of my lip color.  No need with this stain.  The glossy look lasts on average but the color stays.  I didn’t notice much color fading.  If I want my lips to look glossy again, I just used a clear gloss over top since the color still looks great.  It actually smells kind of sweet too and makes my lips feel good! Full Size for $4.99.

Is Ipsy worth it?  YES! 

I have been a subscriber for over a year and love it every month.  It’s only $10 a month and that includes the shipping.  If you are in Canada, there is shipping though.  You always receive 4-5 products each month some of them being generous deluxe samples or mini versions of the product.  Some of them are even full size.  I always look up the values and the total approximate value is on average around $40 each month.  I love how Ipsy works too because it’s the only subscription service that sends you products that best suit you.  They use their IpsyMatch which is a survey you take which you can re-take at any time.  They match you with products based on how you answered the questions.

Another great thing about Ipsy is that you can earn points for leaving feedback on the products you received.  They also have point opportunities to earn by sharing on facebook and you are also provided with your own personal link and get referral points.  These points can be redeemed for full size products that will come with your next Ipsy bag absolutely free.  If you are looking for a beauty subscription that’s affordable, Ipsy is definitely for you and I have been pretty happy with everything I receive each month!  If you are interested in signing up, sign up here —>  Sign up for Ipsy.
