February 2016 Ipsy

In February’s bag I received the following:

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in I’m Kind of a Big Deal (full size, $15) – I’ve received this brand in a previous Ipsy bag and I’m a fan.  Though I haven’t tried this bottle of polish yet, the previous one was opaque in two coats and lasted a couple of days without significant chipping.  I don’t typically wear pink, but this shade is one I could see myself applying soon.

Margaret Dabbs Crystal Nail File (mini, ~$9) – Crystal/glass files are my go-to, so I was stoked to see this one in my bag.  I’ve tried it a few times and don’t have any complaints.

the Balm Mary-Lou Manizer (full size $24, sample size ~$2) – I already own the full size and I definitely recommend it.  It’s a gold champagne shade that leaves a beautiful shimmer when blended out.

Jor’el Parker Eau So Divine (mini roller, $23) –  There is a lot going on in this perfume, with notes of Sandalwood, golden amber, sensual incense, Egyptian myrrh, pink grapefruit, blackcurrant buds, lily of the valley, star jasmine, rose petals, ylang-ylang, cardamom, and Madagascar vanilla.  It’s a bit too strong for me, but it’s not an offensive scent.

tre’StiQue Baby Blush Stick in Bora Bora Coral (full size $34, sample size ~$10) – This isn’t my shade… it’s a little too pale, a little too orange… so I’ll probably pass this along.  From a quick swatch on the back of my hand, it seems that it will blend out well and has a nice powder-like finish.


Bag Value for February: ~$59
