March 2014 Ipsy Bag.

Posted on Updated on

It’s that time again – Ipsy! I seriously get so excited each month when hot pink mailer arrives. This month’s box had four products. I don’t usually add up the prices of the items I receive because I care more about if I actually like what I get, but I thought I would add it up this month to give us both an idea of the value.

First, the bag. Now, this doesn’t have a price associated because 1. they are custom to Ipsy and 2. they are not sold separately, but the monthly bags definitely add value to the subscription.

Okay, so it kinda looked like body cells made out of nail polish to me at first, but once I was told this month’s theme was “Destination Beauty” and local artist Klari Reis made the print based on San Fran’s neighborhoods, it made a little more sense. Here are the products I received and my thoughts on each:

Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready by Bare Minerals (1.5 g) – Approximate retail value $7.50

Please and thank you! Beautiful rose color with a great smooth formula and satin finish. Because you can never have enough good lip products.

Roughless Nail Polish in On What Grounds by Nicole by OPI (o.5 fl oz) – Retails $7.99 I was surprised to get an OPI polish. Let me preface by saying that I own and have used textured polishes that I really like. (See one here) Unfortunately, this is not one of them. Something about the texture, lack of glitter, and color makes your nails literally look like a robins egg. It doesn’t apply well at all. Not a fan, but maybe this would be good for Easter if you’re into themes? Or something. I don’t know. What I do know, though, is that when I put two coats of clear topcoat on top, I really liked the color, so there you go.

Body Butter in Indian Coconut Nectar by Pacifica (2.5 fl oz) – Retails $7.00 This smells divine. Totally obsessed with coconut scents. I have about a billion small body lotions floating around to use up but I really can’t wait to use this one! It is a typical body butter, heavy and moisturizing, but the squeeze tube makes it so much nicer to use than the type in tubs.

Eyeshadow Quad in Bora Bora by Be a Bombshell – Retails $16 Can’t really see myself wearing blue eyeshadow anytime soon, but ya never know. The rest of the shades are pretty ones I would use and blend very nicely.

So, three products I really enjoy and a nail polish that isn’t so great. The total value this month was $38.49. Not bad. Does this box make you want to try it out? Subscribe HERE and I will receive some referral points, making me basically love you for always. Tell me, have you gotten anything good from a subscription box lately? I’d love to hear!

Hugs,

Megan
