I am only on my second ipsy Glam bag but I am LOVING them. I am still shocked each month that its only $10! This month’s theme is Destination Beauty, my ipsy Glam bag for March contained travel-friendly products to help me create the perfect look. Oh and every ipsy collection comes in a cute little makeup bag this months super cute bag was designed by Klari Reis.  So far the ipsy collections have really top notch products and the little makeup bags are so cute I would probably pay $10 for them alone.

Check out what came in this month’s bag:

14963205
Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer ($9.00 .4 fl oz)
This wore more like a highlighter cream, I love the soft glow it gives my skin. It absorbs well and doesn’t leave my face feeling icky. It has a beautiful peach shimmer and is great for brightening up my skin.

nyx love in rio

NYX Love in Rio eyeshadow palette ($5.99)
NYX Cosmetics Love in Rio eyeshadow palette in Segredos De Giselle . I love the compact and the colors look really cute but this one fell a bit short of my expectations. The shadow was soft and easy to apply but had so little pigment it was barely visible.  I swiped each color for my swatch 3 times to get them to show up. Good for a very natural look, but a little on the pale side.

chelle eyeliner pen

Chella liquid eyeliner in Indigo Blue ($24.00)
By far one of my favorite items in this months bag and I got a full size pen, retail value $24! This pen is amazing its really pigmented and has the most delicate felt tip liner. Even with my shaky hands it was easy to apply and the color lasted all day. I love the midnight blue color, it has enough color to brighten up my eye without being over the top. Can’t wait to try more from this brand.

bareminerals ipsy march 2014

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Get Ready lipstick (.5 oz sample .12 oz $18)
Love this lipstick! I am a huge fan of Marvelous Moxie lipstick, and this might be my favorite shade to date. Its a gorgeous rose shade that is really moisturizing and leaves my lips with a bit of shine.  Since I opened this I haven’t used another lip color I love it so much. I love how great it feels on my lips and the staying power is a huge bonus.

 

I am so happy I signed up for ipsy. I have tried a lot of subscription services but can honestly say this is the best priced, with the best products. This month’s bag was fantastic the retail value not including the cute makeup bag is $45 so you are getting a great deal for $10 .  The NYX Palette wasn’t my favorite but I am really loving the rest of the collection.

Santorini? Yes please.  It’s definitely on my must see travel bucket list. I am a huge fan of Korres and can’t wait to check out their new collection!

April 1st, KORRES Natural Products will introduce its NEW “White Grape from the Vineyards of Santorini” collection, featuring a moisturizing showergel and smoothing body cream, transporting you and your sense to the Greek island of Santorini. Santorini is the most popular destination in the Mediterranean with its sparkling Aegean blue sea and Cycladic white houses.

The new collection is infused with white grapes indigenous to Santorini. The grapes are cultivated in the arid volcanic ash rich soil of the island. This ancient vine variety goes back 400 years and remains phylloxera-free. It grows on its own roots with sea mist water, which drifts across the island at night.

The actress shared the love by giving Oscar host Ellen Degeneres her lip balm while Ellen was collecting money for the infamous Oscar pizzas last night, and Ellen instantly became a fan herself! This hilarious exchange became an instant social media hit, trending on twitter as #lupitaslipbalm, and has sold out almost across the country overnight!

Lupita caused quite the rush to grab tubes of Clarins HydraQuench after she shared hers with Ellen at the Oscars. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a tube and I have to say I love it.

HydraQuench feels like a hybrid of all the other balms I have used. Its super hydrating like the heavier balms but its so lightweight on my lips. It feels so refreshing on my lips, I love how soft and smooth it makes my lips.

Great for cool, harsh winters and this will be a must-have in the warm summer months to keep my lips looking and feeling good.
