March Ipsy Bag Review

Hi Beauties,

Finally my March Ipsy bag has arrived. It turns out it was waiting at the post office for me. In Canada, our post system can be really annoying. Sometimes they deliver packages to the door, and sometimes they just give you a delivery slip and you have to pick up the package- even if you’re home when they come by! It’s really stupid and unfortunately that’s often why my Ipsy posts are late. ANYWAYS, let’s see what I got:


I actually really like this month’s Ipsy bag. I feel like last month was a bit ho-hum and the bag was really ugly. This month it’s all blush tones and cuteness. Aside from one product, I really like what I got sent! I also love the cute ‘You are Beautiful’ card. I definitely am going to keep it and display it,  despite them suggesting you pass it on to someone else- oopsie. Consider me sharing it with you as passing it on 😉



INT Cosmetics Eyeshadow in ‘Goddess Gold’

I’ve never heard of this brand before, but it’s cruelty free and the eyeshadow is absolutely gorgeous. It’s a large pan similar to the size of Makeup Forever eyeshadows. The only thing is, loose pans can be messy and annoying to use unless you have a magnetic palette to put them in- I don’t have one at the moment.

Tarteist Lip Paint in ‘Delish’

This is the third sample size Tarte Lip Paint I’ve gotten now and it’s almost like I don’t need to buy one hehehe. The colour is actually wearable for once, it’s a faded brick nude and it’s lovely. I like the formula of these, but I don’t find them to be as good as Kat Von D or Too Faced liquid lippies.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer

I’ve been trying a few things from this line lately and I’m honestly not a fan. I don’t find this or any of their other products moisturizing enough for my dry skin, and they use a lot of cheap fillers in their products like dimethicone, urea, alcohol and EDTA. Those ingredients are NOT worth the high prices they charge.

OUAI Treatment Mask

This is the third Ouai sample I’ve received in the last few months but I’m so happy about it because the other two samples (wave spray and hair oil) have been lovely and I’m excited to try this product!

PUR Cosmetics Disappearing Ink 4-in-1 Concealer in ‘Medium’

Okay, this is the one product I’m not excited about because it’s way too dark for my skin right now! I don’t know why they keep sending my medium-toned products because my settings are not for medium skin. The formula of this does seem quite full coverage and it was difficult to wash off my hand, so I think if I do get a nice summer glow, this might be a great product.


There we go, another month, another Ipsy! Did you ladies get any of these products and what are your thoughts on them if you did?

    I always get sent the medium shades too! And all throughout my ipsy profile I’m considered “light skinned.” Anyways, I’m curious to see how you like the hair mask! Love those products. Also fascinating to read your thoughts on First Aid Beauty bc I had been thinking of trying them out but don’t want all those “filler” products on my face. Love that eyeshadow too!
    Nice bag. xo

      Thanks for reading and commenting! Yes I’m going to try the hair mask today! If you follow me on twitter (@dolledupbyj) I’m probably gonna tweet if I like it or not 🙂 Yes I think it’s an over-rating brand unfortunately. It just didn’t give me the results I wanted. xo

    The months that I cancel the bag is actually not bad lol

      Oh no!! No more ipsy for you?

      • April 1, 2017 / 2:31 pm

        Nope I just never got any good samples.

    How did you get on with the treatment masque? Always been interested to try but as you said, sometimes I feel like it’s a little overrated so would love to know what you thought?

      I found it quite conditioning but I’m not sure I’d buy it. Thanks for reading 🙂
