Ipsy March 2013 : The Great Escape

Hello Hello!

This months bag was exciting for me. Mostly because it was nautical themed. I grew up on boats and on the water, so the actual bag spoke to me and made me happy. The contents of the bag however, I'm content with them. I'll explain in a minuto. 

The first thing in the bag is the Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist. 

This isn't full sized, but it is still pretty damn big for a sample. This is 1 fl. oz and the full size is 6.75 fl. oz. This does have a floral, kind of grannyish scent to it and honestly, I don't think I can use it. While I'm not allergic to Rose's, I have a problem with rose scented products. Only because it really messes with my nose. Allergy wise it doesn't bother me, but this is strong enough that it could potentially set off a reaction. While it has a lot of good ingredients in it, myself personally am too afraid to try it. Shame :(

Yaby eye shadow refill in Azalea Petal & Seashell.

While I was excited to try these Yaby shadows, I can tell you that I was highly disappointed. You may remember a few months ago when I talked about the Balm Meet Matt(e) shadow that I got had fingerprints in it like someone swatched it then put it in the bag anyways. Well, my Yaby Azalea Petal had been opened, there were gouges in the shadow and someone had stuck their finger in it. Then tried to seal it back up to make it look unopened. I did contact Ipsy and they offered to send me a replacement and I honestly just don't want it. This is the second product I've received from them that was used. I know you can't really tell in the picture. My camera is not wanting to cooperate at the present moment :(.
Seashell I've not tried either, I did try and swatch it and it wasn't that pigmented. It can be a good thing. You can get a slight highlight or what not without it looking gawdy. So far, I'm not impressed with Yaby. I'm going to see if I can try a few more of their shadows and make my final decision then.

LA Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Towelettes. 

I've never tried LA Fresh products before, I mean I have ONE towelette that I got from Beauty Army so many months ago, but I've not used it yet honestly. Shame on me I know. I am excited to try these though because you can never have too many makeup towelettes! 

Glam RX Mini Freestyle Palette 

This is what I was the MOST excited about. I've been wanting to try Z Palettes out but haven't had the extra money to order them, so I'm pretty excited about this. It's a little bigger than a business card, so it is perfect for travel. It has a nice sized mirror and is magnetized. So glad to have this!

That was this months bag. For me, not so exciting. I'm probably going to take the Juice Beauty mist to the CFbeauty bloggers meetup this weekend. I'm sure someone will be able to use it :) What did you think of this months bag?!

Disclaimer: I purchased the MyGlam bag with my own money. All products were inside of the bag. I am not affiliated with any of the above mentioned companies, nor am I being compensated to talk about this. 


  1. I loved the bag, but your eye shadow colors are much better then mine...I thought overall it was meh.

  2. I wasn't crazy impressed either. Azalea Petal isn't that pig,enter honestly so it was more disappointing because the color is really pretty.
