Ipsy Glam Bag {March 2015}

Hooray for spring! March's Ipsy bag is all about looking fresh and pretty for spring hence the Floral Fantasy theme. I like the abstract floral print of the bag, but it's not my favorite bag I've ever gotten. I'm pretty happy with this month's bag; some of the products were wow-amazing and some were kind of meh. 

What I got:
 NYX Butter Lipstick in Hunk (full size $6)
 pūr~lisse Soy Milk Cleanser (sample $6, full size $36)
 Boo-Boo Cover-Up Concealer (sample $8, full size $20)
 Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind Highlighter (full size $26)
 Dr. Brandt Mattifying Lotion (sample $7, full size $60)

This month's bag is worth $53!
MINI REVIEWS
NYX Butter Lipstick in Hunk 


This is my favorite thing from the bag! I was a little startled when I saw the color in the tube because it looks very dark, but when applied it's more of a bright fuchsia than a dark purple. You only need a swipe or two because the color is so saturated. The lipstick feels creamy on the lips and the best thing is that it turns into a stain. I want more of these lipsticks now! 

pūr~lisse Soy Milk Cleanser 


I prefer foaming cleansers to really feel like it's working (anyone else who thinks that?) even though I know that's not true, so I was surprised that I liked this. It doesn't foam, but it's also really moisturizing due to the White Tea (which calms) and the Blue Lotus extract (which leaves skin silky). It smells really nice and it doesn't leave my face dry afterward. 

Boo-Boo Cover-Up Concealer 

Wow, this concealer is thick. On the website, it says that it can cover acne, scars, bruises, and tattoos. It does a fantastic job covering blemishes and scars. I got the medium shade, which is a little too yellow on me, but if I blend it in it's not too bad. I would get this again but in the light shade. 

Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind Highlighter 


Am I the only one loves highlighters? This one is so pretty; it's a pale pink shimmery illuminator that would look great on every skin tone. I used it as a highlighter, dusted over my blush for some sparkle, and as eyeshadow. I would recommend it, but I won't get it again because it's too expensive. 

Dr. Brandt Mattifying Lotion 

The problem with my oily skin is that when I put on any product my face gets oilier faster. I had high hopes for this mattifying lotion, but it didn't keep the oil at bay. When my skin is oily and put a dab on it does mattify my skin, but not for long. I won't be purchasing this.

  11. I got lipstick that is a typical pink-y shade, yours is awesome and I'm glad you ended up liking it! The color doesn't look too intense on you at all, it's gorg! I love highlighters too, they're something I really started experimenting with since I've tried to become a "beauty person." I haven't tried all my products for this month yet, but it was a decent bag.
