Hello! Hope you guys are having a great start to your weekend! The end of the week was a little annoying, what with the snow storm. It wasn't too bad though, after my initial drive to work (which sucked, but at least I made it alive), and the snow stopped falling, everything got plowed in a timely manner and getting home was easy. I also think I'm getting acclimated to the cold; before, when it was 3°F out I thought I was going to die. Now when it's 1°F, I comment on how much warmer and pleasant it is. So it goes.
But I'm sure you don't want to talk about the weather, especially since the title of this post is not about the weather but about my January 2014 Ipsy bag!
I'll start with this month's bag, since that's the thing you usually see first (at least I try to, sometimes there are items that don't fit in the bag so they're loose in the mailer and people may or may not pull them out first and I have no idea why I'm basically giving you a disclaimer about this).
Now to the best part: the products! As always, I got five products this month. Unlike the past few months, everything was deluxe sized with no full sized products (but for only $10 a month, not a big deal). This month was a little disappointing, but it wasn't so much that I felt cheated or that I wasted my money. I still think this bag was a great deal and I'm still happy to be subscribed to Ipsy. You'll see what I mean as I go through what I got.
Even though I think I talked about it last in my video, I'll talk about the most disappointing product first.
I think I'll continue to climb the ladder of satisfaction and end this post on a good note, so I'll do the second most disappointing product next.
And here's the product that I'm interesting in trying but can't due to its ingredients.
For the last two products, I'm not sure there's a clear winner for "favorite product out of this month's bag". I like them both and was excited to get them!
And finally, here is the last item from this month's bag.
Overall, this was an okay bag. It was disappointing in the fact that it included a couple products that I can't use due to allergies and a product that I can't buy on it's own if I end up liking it. The eye pencil and the tinted lip balm are pretty awesome though, and I feel like I got my $10 worth, so I'm not upset or anything. The final(ish) value of my January 2014 Ipsy bag is $36.25, though that doesn't count the value of the Proactiv+ pads since I have no idea what they're worth and the value of the Mica Beauty tinted lip balm may be inflated since the full size comes with a brush and the sample size does not.
Thanks for reading! <3
