Thoughts on Bag: The only item I will be using in this whole bag is the mascara. It's one of my top 5 mascaras. The lip balm was totally ugly and looked like i had applied concealer on my lips. It was not attractive at all. I remember showing my hubby and he gave me a "what the heck" is on your lips look. lol I might try out the cleanser but my face is really picky with cleansers and also many of them dry out my already very dry skin. The eyeshadow was some dull sheer bronze shade. That shade is totally not worth it's price. I also don't use hair products, so the spray won't be used either. I decided im just going to put all my hair products in a basket in the guest bathroom when we get a house. Maybe then if someone stays/comes over and needs a hair product to use i will have plenty. :p I could though go the route of others and just sell them on ebay. I have at least 30 hair samples from my ipsy bags that have never been used.
