Ipsy Glam Bag {February 2014} + Mini Giveaway

A post on a Saturday? Well, I wanted to show you guys what I got in my Ipsy Glam Bag this month, but ran out of weekdays. For $10 a month, Ipsy gives you a bag of five deluxe samples. February's theme was the Look of Love, and I received the bag on Valentine's Day, so that was perfect timing. I love the beauty products in this bag, so this month was a winner in my book!

For the month of February, I received:
 City Color's Be Matte Blush in Fresh Melon (full size $3)
 POP Beauty's Plump Pout Mini in Peony Petal (full size $16, sample $8ish)
 Zoya's Nail Polish in Odette (full size $9)
 PHYTO-C's Velvet Gel (full size $64, sample $16)
 J.Cat Beauty's Eyelashes & Eye Glue (full size $4)

This bag was worth $40! 
MINI REVIEWS
City Color's Be Matte Blush in Fresh Melon

This is my absolute favorite thing from this month's bag! I love blush, especially matte powder blush, so this is the perfect thing for me. The fresh melon color is gorgeous and looks coral-y in the pan, but is a little more pink on the skin, which is fine with me. This color is going to be great for the spring and summer. It is super pigmented, so a little goes a long way.

POP Beauty's Plump Pout Mini in Peony Petal 

This lip gloss is a beautiful rosy color and is more like a liquid lipstick than a gloss, which I like. It's very pigmented and feels very smooth on the lips. The only downside is that it smells like a mix of vanilla and burnt rubber, but luckily you can't smell it while it's on. Also, the packaging is really cute.

Zoya's Nail Polish in Odette

I'm going to swoon forever over this dusty purple nail polish. It's so pretty and I think it's a nice color for winter and spring. It's a bit sheer, but you can layer it to make it a deeper color.

PHYTO-C's Velvet Gel 

This small bottle utterly confused me when I first got it. I had no idea what it was. On the website it says it's supposed to "give skin a glowing appearance, improves the combination of rebounding cells and collagens, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and nourishes, hydrates, and softens skin." So essentially it's an anti-aging pink gel. I'm not sure if this actually works, but I'll probably dab it under my eyes at night now and then.

J.Cat Beauty's Eyelashes & Eye Glue

This is the only thing that really disappointed me because I never wear fake eyelashes. I would end up fidgeting with them the whole time, so I'm going to give this away to one of you lovely ladies! You also get an extra little present! Enter below. (Residents of U.S. & Canada only.)

  5. I was wondering about the Odette - it's such a pretty color, but it has to be super opaque to make it easy to apply quickly... How do you find Zoya compares to other nail polishes?

  16. I really like the Zoya nail polish! I mentioned that it was sheer in the post, but if you get a good amount on the brush and paint it on it isn't that sheer. I only put two coats and it looks great. It also dried pretty quickly and I've already worn it for several days and chipping isn't too bad.
