Daily Blog #164- Review of my January Ipsy Bag

Greetings and Salutations, Blog Readers!

Today I am reviewing my January Ipsy bag! Which, because of our mailbox getting broken, and our mail being delivered to the front office, took FOREVER to get to me.

So the bag was a cute white marbled pouch, and the brush that came with it matched, which was amazing.

So I guess I will review that part of it first.

The brush I got was this super cute F.A.R.A.H BRUSHES face brush, size 160f. Super soft bristles, great for contour or blush!

Adorable, straight up, you feel like one of those instragram influencer model types instantly because it is so cute! Also applies product well!.

Speaking of product it would place, I got a blush, the Glow to Illuminating Blush in Pinch Me from CIATE LONDON.

This product I didn’t really love, the blush was too peach for me, and inevitably had too much highlighter to act as a blush, and the highlighter had too much blush to be a highlighter. I may use it as an eyeshadow, however, because for those cute pink/peach looks, it may be great.

Speaking of color flops in a good product I will still try to use…BEAUTY FOR REAL Lip Revival Tinted Lip Balm in Debbie.

I LOVE tinted lip balms…but sadly this one had too much peach in it, just like the blush, and it made my lips feel kind of dry, which also kind of sucked a bit. I love a good tinted balm, but this one wasn’t great.

I was able to wash off the products I didn’t like with a super great cleansing balm, however, and that is cool! I am a huge fan of cleansing balms, so it was great to get to try BANILA CO Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original -which advertises as a three in one, allowing for cleaning, oil and then moisture, it melted off the products I had on, and left my skin feeling great. I obviously washed with a proper cleanser after the fact, to actually remove stuff, and was very pleased.

Last but not least is the JJ YOUNG Pore Glow Mask. This mask was my item that I picked, as Ipsy lets you pick one item sometimes, and I always pick a mask, because masks and skin care are my jam, much more than actual make up, if you haven’t been able to tell from the selections in my beauty blogs.

This mask was awesome, super hydrating, which my dry skin really enjoyed, and washed off easy enough with one of my knitted scrubbies. All in all, I loved this mask, and it was probably the highlight of my bag.

And there you have it. My review of my January Ipsy bag. Not a great bag, I rated it 3 stars, but I consider it “getting the bad bag out of the way.”

It’s all good, to have the bad bag out of the way, as I have a bunch of skin masks I need to go through, and plenty of make up products and skin care products to use, so it’s okay to have a disappointing bag, and, it proves that not every one of my reviews is glowingly positive.

I hope you all enjoyed this less than glowing review of my January Ipsy bag, and as always…
