January Ipsy Review

This month’s theme is “A True Star Will Always Shine” the super star items are a Soho makeup brush which I got the concealer brush, Josie Maran Argan Oil, Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter, Big Sexy Hair hair spray, and Nailtini Nail Lacquer in Bloody Mary.

Soho Makeup Brush, I was hoping to get the crease brush so I was a little disappointed to get the concealer one instead. However I have been on the hunt for a concealer brush that will work under my eyes. So far this one is doing the trick. The packaging claims that the handle is ergonomic and this feature really makes a difference in how comfortable it is to hold. Soho brushes can be bought at Walgreens.

Josie Maran Argan Oil (.17oz) I love this stuff so I was excited to see it would be included in this month’s bag. I was beginning to get low on my current bottle which happens to be the same size. I use a small dot to mix in my eye cream, and if I want to boost up my body lotion. You can put this on your face as a moisturizer which I have done a few times but not on a regular basis. Adding a few drops to a bath or foot bath really makes a difference too.

Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter (2.5 oz) smells amazing. I have a huge influx of lotion right now and to me this smells more summer like so I am going to save this until the warmer months come. The formula is really nice and you don’t need a lot to feel moisturized.

Big Sexy Hair, hair spray (1.5 0z) is a great size for me since I never use hair spray. It is something good to have on hand in case I experiment with an up do or curl my hair.  I am familiar with the brand and I am happy that it is a nicer brand of hair spray then I would have ever bought myself.

Nailtini Nail Laquer in Bloody Mary (.5 oz) is a orange red which isn’t my favorite tone but I do love having more red nail options. I tend to like the more berry toned reds so for me this may be for my toe nails or once it is the summer. I love Nailtini and I am glad to see more of it in another box (previously received a glitter top coat in November’s bag).

I am very pleased with the bag this month, they are essentials that most people will need I am most excited about the argan oil and the Pacifica lotion. I am already looking forward to next month’s bag!
