Ipsy - Glam Bag February 2014: The Look of Love

By cristalena56 · February 20, 2014

Every Ipsy bag is shipped in a shiny pink envelope.

This month's theme is fitting for the month of valentine's day, "The Look of Love".

There's a postcard in every bag showing what brands were featured in that month's bag. Some of the brands this month included Zoya, Pop Beauty, City Color, Phyto, NuMe, and Mally.

The bag part of every "Glam Bag" is a makeup bag. Every month is a different one fitting the theme of that month's bag. 

This is how i found the items in the bag. :)

Product: City Color Be Matte Blush in Fresh Melon
Description: Available in 4 shades, this silky-smooth, highly pigmented matte blush compliments and blends evenly with your skin's natural glow. Extremely buildable to create a subtle or dramatic look. Ipsy subscribers who receive this product will receive Fresh Melon, Blackberry, Dragonfruit, or Toasted Coconut. 
Size: Full Size (8.9 grams)
Where to Buy: City Color Beauty
My Thoughts: Its super pigmented and a little goes a long way. To some this color might look scary at first but blends on smoothly giving your cheeks a nice coralish tint to the cheeks. This is a nice color for the summer month's. I live in phoenix, so it seems like summer almost all year round. :) This product is super amazing being how cheap it is to buy. I highly recommend this. I've been wearing it everyday since I received my bag last week. :)
: $2.99
Promo: 20% off purchase at citycolorbeauty.com with code 14IPSY20

Product: Tini Beauty Eyetini Cordial Cream Shadow + Base In One in Spiced Rum
Description: Say goodbye to creasing and fading with Eyetini Eye Cordial Shadow Tint & Base. Eye Cordial's revolutionary formula glides on beguiling creamy color and sets to a transfer-resistant finish that doubles as a wear-extending base under powder shadow. ipsy subscribers who receive this product will receive Spiced Rum, Violette (an ipsy exclusive!), or Ambrosia.
Size: Full Size (0.14 oz)
Where to BuyTini Beauty
My Thoughts: I was kind of on the fence with the color, since gold's don't always look the best on me. Also, I'm not really a fan of cream shadows. They can be hard to work with and crease easily. This shade is super pigmented, and applied easily with the felt applicator. It was very opaque. I however have to say to my fellow sensitive eye gals(guys) this stung my eye a lot. However, when I applied a powder shadow over, the stinging subsided. I'm not sure for the wear, since I only had it on for a short time. I was just testing a eye look out using it.
Value: $18.00
Promo: 50% off $12+ purchase at tinibeauty.com and free nail polish with code: IPSYLOVE

Product: Pop Beauty Plump Pout Mini in Peony Petal
Description: This plumping pout perfector combines the high-shine of a lacquered gloss with the long wear of a stain and is packed full of lip-plumping peptides and avocado and jojoba oils. Lightweight, creamy texture immediately merges with lips & delivers intense glossy color for an extremely long-lasting finish! ipsy subscribers who receive this product will receive Peony Petal or Fuschia Freesia
Size: 4 grams (Full Size 8 grams)
Where to BuyPop Beauty or Ulta
My Thoughts: I thought this was a nice everyday shade. This gave my lips a rasberry pink tint to it. This doesn't have the stickyness like a lot of other lip glosses have. Nor does it stain the lips like a lip stain. It applied easily with the felt tip wand. I also like how flat the packaging is and can be easily slipped into your pocket of jeans or a pocket in your purse. I didn't notice any plumping, so maybe mine was a dud in that department. :p I noticed on the ipsy website people complaining of an odor, but mine had no odor that i'm aware of. 
Value: $8.00 (full Size $16.00)
Promo: Save 25% with code PoppingPout at popbeauty.com

I didn't realize the product's name didn't show up in my picture..

Product: NuMe Intense Renewal Mask
DescriptionUnleash levels of moisture that make hair more resistant to breakage from future styling and color treatments with the protective properties of NuMe’s Intense Renewal Mask. Your hair will show drastic improvement and superior results after the first treatment. With a special blend of powerful ingredients, the restorative and rejuvenating effects of the Intense Renewal Mask will leave hair feeling replenished, and alive. 
Size: 20 mL (Full Size 177 mL)
Where to Buy: NuMe
My Thoughts: I don't usually use the hair products sent to me, so i'm not sure about this product. Since I work in a stock room, I usually brush my hair and then clip it or put in a ponytail. The only hair products i really use is shampoo and conditioner. I have oily hair, and most hair products make my hair even oilier. If I do test this out, I will add a review at a later date.
Value: $3.39 (Full Size $29.99)
Promo: Receive 50% off plus free shipping and free curling wand with $75+ purchase using code: nipsyparty50

Product: Zoya Nail Polish in Odette

Size: Full Size 0.5 oz
Where to Buy: Zoya
My Thoughts: I love zoya polishes. They are long lasting and for the most part they apply smoothly. This one applied smoothly and dried quickly. It was opaque with one coat but i like to do at least 2 like shown above in my swatch picture. I'm not a big fan of earthy muted colors. This was a earthy plum color. Its from zoya's new Natural Collection. It might not be a color i would be reaching for, but will use when im feeling like a more muted manicure then my usual colorful or glittery manicures. :p
Value: $9.00

Thoughts on Bag:  I enjoyed this bag for the most part. My favorite items are the blush, lip gloss, and nail polish. This is one of the better bag i have gotten in the last few months. The color selection for me was better, then it has been in the past.

Thoughts on Bag: I loved everything but the blow dry gel. The lotion smells so yummy that you want to eat your hand. Makes me think of strawberries and cream oatmeal. I also love the zoya color I got even though i was hoping for the emerald shade Giovanna. I've been using the h20 and my face seems more moisturized then it had been. I just damped my face first with some water and the dot it on my face. A little goes along way. The lip gloss tingles and has a butterscotch flavor. The blow dry gel just made my hair oily and tangled more then anything. I have fine hair, so i can't recommend it for this hairtype.

Crackled Candy Corn

By cristalena56 · September 28, 2011

So... I've seemed to be changing my polish either everyday or every other day... I actually did one mani to immediately take it off to do this one because i was inspired when i saw this new farmville halloween tree.

So i looked through my polishes and found the colors i needed..

Opi Shatter

Zoya Phoebe

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Sun Kissed

Konad Special Polish in White

Color Club Top Coat

I need to redo my pinky because the second i put the top coat on i moved my hand and it it on something.. I wish they would have all shattered like on my thumb. My Black Shatter is starting to dry out though... :/


*I first applied Phoebe to a 3rd of each nail.

*Waited a minute or 2 and applied Sun Kissed the middle third of my nail.

*Waited a minute or 2 and applied the Konad White.

*I applied Black Shatter Shortly After.

*The last step you need to wait for it to dry a bit so the top coat doesnt smear the black.

Zoya Robyn

By cristalena56 · January 29, 2011

This is the opposite of Pippa. In pictures its a little lighter then what it is. I saw pictures on some other blogs which made me want this color. When it came, it was darker then what i expected. I like it though. A nice robyn's egg blue color :D

Heres 1 Coat:

Someone said on a blog this can be worn with 1 coat.. But when i put it on, yes its opaque but streaky.. :/

Not even 2 coats:

A little better, but still not enough coverage..

Heres 3 Coats:

No Flash:

Few More Pics:

Zoya Pippa

By cristalena56 · January 29, 2011

I've been wanting a yellow, but can never find one i like. I gotten a few and returned them, mainly though because they were yellowing my nails. So when i was searching the zoya colors I came across it and thought it might be a nice yellow for me. Well I got it today but idk if i like it.. I dont think it goes good with my skintone since i have pink undertones... I might give it away to my friend.. not for sure yet :p Might use it at Easter time.

The color is actually a little lighter then it shows in pictures. Pictures seems to darken it??

Heres 1 Coat:

I don't know what it is about yellow polishes, but they like to go on streaky?? It's always happened to me no matter the formula/brand. This is more of a creamy finish.

3 Coats Here:

Once you put a couple more coats on it looks better. I found if i globbed it on more, the better it looked. Its def an opaque color.
