That warm fuzzy feeling you get from being in love. Feel it every day, in the littlest of things.
From pampering your skin with multi-step routine to savoring your morning coffee,
every moment is an opportunity to show yourself how much you love you.
Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription box that sends you sample size or full-sized depending on the subscription tier you chose. These products may either be make-up or beauty products such as facial cleansers or make-up brushes. This is a review of the 2020 February Glam Bag Feel The Love that I purchased for $12 with my own money.
I will be including the information that the information card included has on it, then sharing my opinion about the products that came in the February 2020 Feel The Love.
This month’s Glam Bag theme is a pampering, the bag is a pink a cross-hatch sewn design. I love it, it’s a well-suited bag for this month’s theme. I like the deep purple, very similar to this year’s Ipsy Valentine’s Limited Edition Mystery Bag. It’s a good quality bag that I look forward to using.
This good-for-your-skin eyeshadow is the perfect way to show your lids some love. The velvety, metallic raisin color is infused with rosehip seed oil to help nourish and protect your lids. It’s crease-free and long-wearing—plus, it’s vegan and free of talc, mineral oil, and parabens. Tip: For date night smokey eye: Sweep shadow all over lids, then smudge it along the lower lash line.
The Headliner is a very beautiful color, it applies very smooth and blends effortlessly, it has a nice soft color that isn’t heavy. I usually don’t use much eyeshadow, but this is light, great for a more natural look. You can apply it with your finger and blend or with an eyeshadow brush.
If you’ve got 20 minutes to spare, that’s all you need to give your skin some extra TLC with this glow-introducing sheet mask. It’ll transform your skin from dull and tired to bright and dewy with pure 24K gold. Plus, a dose of hyaluronic acid draws in moisture for a soft, smooth, hydrated complexion. Tip: Waste not! Massage any leftover serum onto your neck and cheeks for an allover glow.
Here are just a few powerful ingredients that enhance your skin:
- Copper Tripeptide-1 is a naturally occurring ingredient that is composed of three amino acids (Glycine, Histidine, Lysine) responsible for collagen production which tightens, elasticate, and firms the skin.
- Sodium Hyaluronate is a safe and effective moisturizer and has the ability to bind and hold onto significant amounts of water.
- Glutathione is known to be responsible for whitening the skin by removing impurities and lowering the skin’s melatonin level. Glutathione is also a powerful anti-oxidant that free skin from free radicals, resulting in clearer and brighter skin.
- Allantoin is wildly used among different skincare products because of its soothing, healing abilities. Allantoin also softens the skin which promotes more moisture to be absorbed.
This feels really amazing, my facial skin feels remarkable, like brand new. There was a lot of serum to use in the bag to rub over my face after the mask’s serum had absorbed into my skin. I don’t think my face has ever had such an amazing sheet mask experience. My skin looks golden, refreshed, renewed, moisturized, dewy. These are hard to come by at a discount, Walmart has a great deal, 10 for $12.50, but they are out of stock.
Baby, it’s cold outside, but don’t let that dull your glow. Say hello to the silkiest highlighter ever. This powder blends into the skin like butter, while light-reflecting pearly pink pigments make your cheekbones and high points of your face pop. Oh, and it’ll never cake or crease—promise. Tip: For a sheer glow, apply with fingers. For a shimmery, metallic look, use a damp makeup sponge.
I just started experimenting with highlighters this year, my first highlighter was more of a nude, this one has a lot more pink pigment. The sheen is very lovely, I have been missing out on simple makeup tricks like highlighters to brighten my look. I use just enough to give a glow without making the highlighter obvious. I always go for a simple look, this looks great high on my cheeks, and I even add a touch of highlighter on the edge on my brow bone right under my brow. I didn’t know what I was missing until I started receiving beauty products in subscription services.
When it’s cold out, your hands can be the first to show signs of moisture loss. Always keep a hand lotion like this water-light formula within reach. The non-tacky, fast-absorbing formula is infused with macadamia seed, olive oil, and argan oil to keep your hands nourished and moisturized throughout the day. Tip; Don’t forget to reapply whenever you wash your hands-some hand soaps can be super drying.
I love the magnolia scents, this lotion feels very silky and smells amazing, it melts into my hands and gives a very floral and sweet aroma to your skin. The tube is small enough to slip in a handbag or in a clutch. It does seem to be a little hard to come by though, it’s out of stock on Amazon, and the only other place I can find it in the US is online at CVS.
Not only does this multitasking primer keep your makeup looking fresh, it’s packed with good-for-you ingredients like bark and ginger root extract that get your skin healthy and glowing from the inside out. The oil-free formula hydrates and helps refine pores, plus it’s light and you can barely feel it on your skin. Tip: Dot primer onto your forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin. Blend it out evenly with your fingers.
I love primers, I tend to wear them alone sometimes after moisturizing to give me a soft dewy look for those no makeup days. Primers are the best thing to happen to makeup. This particular primer smells light and smooths right in, it’s very cloud-like, I can’t even feel it on my skin. My skin looks more smooth, evenly toned, moisturized, and dewy. My pores shrunk, the primer gave my face a really refreshed look without making it greasy or oily. I really see a difference from my other primers.
Verdict: This bag was very well selected for pampering yourself. My favorite item out of this Glam Bag was the 24K sheet mask, applying that with the primer to follow and lock in moisture was so refreshing! I am going to value each item not, I don’t think the Ipsy Glam Bag – Feel the Love is at the value they claimed it to be. Let’s do a little math —
