January Ipsy, like seriously every other box, is about the new year! One of the reasons I enjoy and recommend Ipsy is that you usually get a new look and a bag for just ten bucks. This was true this month too, but it was more about skin care and a fresh-faced new look. I think most subscribers only got a little tiny bit of makeup in their bags for January. The bright pink mailer it comes in always makes me smile.

January 2014 Ipsy Glam Bag – Amazing

Why will 2014 be amazing for you? Here’s my reason!

2014 will be amazing!
2014 will be amazing!

Yeah! We found out a week ago that my husband’s job (originally 6 months or something small) is finally coming to an end and he is coming back! He’s been gone for a year and a half. It’s been tough. Now I have great things to look forward to – and probably a lot more makeup to wear 🙂

This bag had a strong smell. I am going to put it in the donate pile because it weirded me out.

Makeup Remover Wipes
Absolute Makeup Cleansing Tissues

Absolute Makeup Cleansing Tissues ($4.45)

Mica Beauty Tinted Lip Balm in Fiesta ($18.75, different packaging) This is so pretty, what a great tinted lip balm! So nice to not get something that is bright red!

Yaby Natural Finish Liquid Foundation in Buff ($13.99) The most fascinating thing about this product for me is that it comes in a rainbow of colors. Yes those are foundations. What! Is that for skin tone correction? I’m excited to try it – any brand with this sort of attention to skin tone correction has got to be great.

Apothederm

Apothederm Bright Skin Serum ($9.45) I don’t think I’ve ever heard of this brand before? This serum combines malic and mandelic acids to refine dull, lackluster skin and is supposed to correct imperfections!

Coastal Scents Foundation Brush

Coastal Scents Foundation Brush ($4.95) Does Coastal Scents sell perfume? I’ve never seen it! I think it’s nice to have a foundation brush and they wear out quickly, so I can always use more!

I thought my January Ipsy bag was nice, but I wanted a little more pizazz. However a pretty face with some natural lip balm is pretty great! What did you get in your bag?

    What did you think of the cleansing wipes smell? I got the same scent and almost had a gagging reaction to it. Not sure if it was just my bag.

        IT’S NOT JUST ME! Oh thank goodness! I am tempted to write Ipsy just as a heads-up.

      I know! I can’t wait. He’s visiting for the superbowl (um, can i admit i almost don’t want our team to go all the way so he’s not consumed by the game and we can go see the baby panda instead?? because i’m thinking that it will be a ghost town at the zoo!). and we have 2.5 months. i am trying to start reorganizing…

    Girls forget about sample sizes; I love the BeautyBox from Dermstore. Amazing products, many full size, 25$ per month with over 100$ value!
