{Out of the Box}: February 2015 Ipsy Glam Bag reveal/review

Out of the Box is a feature I do to showcase and give a brief review of products in the subscription boxes that I receive.

Today's review is of my Ipsy makeup bag for the month.  Ipsy is a service where "each month, subscribers will receive a beautiful Glam Bag with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Members can watch and play along with the stylists with the same products that they are using. All for only $10 a month. "  If you are interested, please click here to use my referral code and help me earn free bags.

February's theme is #ipsyLOVE.  The bag is a cute pink/red/white geometric pattern.  Because it's Valentine's Day and those are the predominant colors of the month!

Here's a screenshot of my bag:

Why not use the snow to take a cool pic?  

*Cargo Cosmetics Mini Lip Gloss in Anguilla.  I'm getting a sample size (hence the "mini"), but regular size gloss costs $16.
*EVA NYC Up All Night Volumizing Spray.  $10
*Joya Composition No. 1 Perfum Oil---I'm hesitant about smells, as most perfumes trigger headaches.  So far, this one has more of a powdery scent, so it isn't that bad.  It's not a spray, it's a little roller ball.  $30 for 0.34 fl oz.
*ModelCo Blush Cheek Powder in Peach Bellini.  I like the way that looks on the back of my wrist!  A hint of peach shimmer.  I usually go for pinks, but I like this!  $22
*'Tini Beauty Rob Scheppy for 'Tini Beauty Eyeshadow in Pearl Fizz.  According to the website, it's a "shimmer", which I can go either way on.  I'm kind of over ipsy sending me neutral eyeshadows.  I want something darker, more bold.  Apparently, this color is part of a collection that is $39.50.

Overall, I really like this bag.  I have to be honest and say that I'm jealous of my friends who got the blush brush in addition to the blush, or the eyelash curler.  Like I said, I'm kind of over slightly shimmery eye shadows, and perfume is hit or miss (though still so far so good!).  And now, trying on the lipgloss, the color just isn't right.  You can't really tell from the pic, but it's just too light for me.  Darn.  I'm always looking for a good pink gloss.
