Ipsy February 2017 Glam Bag {Much Love}

VENeffect Skin Care Anti-Aging Lip Treatment
Full Size Price: $85.00
Sample size value is approximately: $25.50
This is an anti-aging lip treatment that is infused with plant based phytoestrogens which help to minimize and prevent vertical lines around your lips. It also claims to hydrate your lips and provide a plumping effect without stinging or irritation. To use you simply apply on and around lips as needed and you can also use it before applying your lipstick to prevent color bleed. The formula is quite thick and carries a strong floral and citrus scent. I did find that it was quite moisturizing but do feel I'd need a larger sampling size to really attest to any anti-aging claims. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

BellaPierre Cosmetics Volumelash Waterproof Mascara
Full Size Price: $20.00
This is a waterproof mascara that claims to have a smudge-free formula. It has a flexible brush that helps to separate and coat every single lash. I really enjoyed the unique shape of the brush and how it did not pick up too much product before application. I really did enjoy how it looks on my lashes and did not experience any clumping. This appears to be the first full size product this month and is one I would repurchase.

Luna Cosmetics Highlighter in the shade "Calypso"
Full Size Price: $23.00*
Sample size value: (if not full size) $11.50
I have only recently started using highlighters in my every day makeup routine so I was excited to give this product a try. This is a pale lavender shade that is suited for all skin tones. It is easily layerable so you can have as little or as much of a sheen as you prefer. It contains a baked formula which provides a creamy and velvety texture which allows it to blend out nicely. I am quite pale and found just one to two swipes of this highlighter provided a nice pearl like color. I really do enjoy how well it blends and the beautiful color it has and would consider repurchasing this product. From my research, I was unable to decide if this is either a full size or half size sample. Each value is included.

NYX Butter Lipstick in the shade "Lifeguard"
Full Size Price: $6.00
I am already a big of the NYX butter lipsticks so I was happy to try out this shade. This lipstick contains a satin finish with a very creamy and pigmented formula. The shade is a deep magenta which makes it a red that pops but is easily wearable. I really enjoyed how easy this is to apply and how moisturizing it is while wearing. It is not a long lasting lipstick but it does set nicely and last for a good while. From my research, this does appear to be another full size product this month. I would repurchase this and other shades.

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in shade "$12 Latte"
Full Size Price: $15.00
I have tried a few Trust Fund Beauty nail polishes thanks to Ipsy and while I have enjoyed most of the colors, the formula has been hit or miss for me. The brand is vegan and cruelty free. When I first saw this shade, I was quite hesitant to how I would feel about it as it is very much out of my realm of typical polish shades. This is a dark gray-ish purple brown which allows it to have a very unique look depending on the light. I have mostly seen this as a chocolate brown and sometimes even edging toward a more black color. The formula of this one has been one of the better ones I have had. I have worn it for a few days now and have no major chipping issues. It took me 2 coats to achieve the opaque look. From my research, this does appear to be another full size product this month. I would consider purchasing other shades from this brand.

My February Glam Bag is valued at $89.50.
I pay $10.00 a month, so I received an additional value of $79.50.

Overall, I was extremely pleased with this month's bag as it contained several full size and new products to me. I also liked how cosmetics centered it was and not so much hair and skincare as I feel a lot of my monthly subscriptions have been focused in that direction lately. My favorite product from this month's bag is the mascara.
