Value of Bag: $42.31
Thoughts on Bag: This bag had more items to use then my first bag. I like the lip balm, brush, mascara, and i will try out the eye cream since my foundation has been clinging to dry patches under my eyes. I think the lip balm is a nice color for everyday looks and you can never go wrong having extra makeup brushes. I like that its 2 brushes in 1. It has a nice pencil brush on one side and a fluffy side for blending or sweeping some color onto lid/crease.

This looks totally ugly on fair skin...


I don't know who would look good in this color. It looks like i put concealer on my lips..


This will never be worn by me.. ick...


Price of Bag: $10
Where to Subscribe: Ipsy
Value of Bag: $37.99
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.

I decided to do the half makeup and half no makeup for this look. Im really scared though to post my pictures. lol I cant even go check the mail without putting some sort of face makeup on. Hopefully its not too scary..
