Ipsy February bag

Hello, Fireflies!

Ignore for a moment that we're almost to the end of March, and be excited about this great Ipsy bag I got in February.

Ipsy bag I got in February.

I've tried the Dr. Lim Acne Spot Corrector a couple of times on some blemishes I have. Yes, I'm in my 40s and I still break out.  I don't have wrinkles, so I'll take the tradeoff.  I didn't have much luck with this product, though.  My angry red pimples stayed angry and red for the same amount of time they usually do.  I did have some luck with smaller, less angry pimples going away faster with liberal application of the product, but I didn't notice anything different from when I use something from Clearasil, for example.

I really liked the POP lipgloss in Peony Petal, swatched first on the left.  Nice pigmentation, felt nice - I didn't get any smell from it, but I've heard some bloggers were sensitive to theirs.

The middle swatch is the City Color Be Matte Blush in Fresh Melon.  I am all about the peachy-pink colors right now, and matte is IN.

The swatch on the right is from that tall tube, which I originally thought was a lip product, but no, it's an Eye Cordial Shadow Tint & Base from Tini Beauty in Ambrosia.  I love metallic eye colors, especially as a base.


Here's another look of POP Peony Petal on my Pursed Pout. Perfection.

You're probably already familiar with Zoya polish, and Odette was a color I really wanted, but was holding out buying on the remote possibility it was coming in this bag.  I tell ya, when I saw I had gotten Odette, I felt like I won the lottery.  It's gorgeous.

I played around with placing some individual iridescent glitters on it, but you could really only see them in close up pictures like this one.  In Real Life, it was a hot mess.

  2. I like the Zoya nail polish. The only thing to love w/ having oily is delayed wrinkes, lol! But I can relate w/ the annoying adult acne.

    1. Yes, I love telling people that I'm 42 and having them gasp, 'no! But you don't have any wrinkles!' . Of course, it helps that the fat fills them in, too! lol.

    1. Some girls got the Zoya Dot, which I would have been okay with, but I'm soo happy I got Odette. I get Ipsy Envy looking at the other cool stuff people get - I want all the samples! lol

  6. Looks like you got a great bag in February, but too bad the acne treatment didn't work all that well.

    1. It would look great on you - I haven't seen a blush color yet that you can't wear.

    1. I wonder if having all these different sub box options has forced everyone to up their game. Competition is good!

    1. Metallics are such a fun look - especially for someone like me who wears glasses. We need a little extra so people see our eyes!

  19. I just loved February's glam bag! Aside from the fact that I already had Odette, I loved everything else. I put the Dr. Lin on my pimples overnight and when I wake up, they've gone down considerably. My sister and I use it all the time :)
