I’ve been sick all week, so I haven’t been able to devote much time to posting. Luckily my February glam bag arrived to bring me some cheer. This month’s theme is “Much Love,” which is how I’m feeling about the two Ipsy bags I’ve received so far. The bag includes some skin care items, a lipstick, an eye pencil and an eyeshadow from many brands that I’ve never come across, like Dermadeli, Marsk, Biobelle and Lord & Berry.

Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow in “You’re Toast” – $22.50USD
This coppery-gold toned loose eyeshadow is truly gorgeous! This shimmery formula can be used wet or dry depending on the look you’re going for and claims to be 100% natural. I’ve never heard of Marsk cosmetics before but I’m definitely going to try this shadow out ASAP!
NYX Butter Lipstick in “Ripe Berry” – $6.50USD
I was very happy to see NYX’s butter lipstick in my bag this month. I have one other shade in this line and I was planning to buy more. The formula of this lipstick definitely lives up to the “butter” in its name; it goes on so smooth and creamy; very similar to a lip balm or chapstick. It feels great on the lips, provides a semi-matte finish and is perfect for the dry winter weather. I’ve included a sample of this colour on my lips below.
Lord & Berry Eye Pencil – #221 Black – $23USD
This kohl eyeliner claims to go on smooth and provide smudge-proof, waterproof lining. I usually stay away from eye pencils (my oily skin tends to make them smudge) so I will definitely be putting this eyeliner through its paces. If it stays on my waterline, I will buy a whole case!
Biobelle #Staygorgeous & #Iwokeupthisway Sheet Masks – $4.99USD ea.
These sheet masks are made with Tencil, a natural biodegradable fibre that claims to stick to you like a second skin (I hope these suckers com off!). #StayGorgeous delivers hydrating almond oil to skin, while the #IWokeUpLikeThis mask is full of vitamin C to make spots/discolourations disappear. Can’t wait to compare these to the Sally’s Box masks I got in last month’s Ipsy bag.
Dermadeli Rejuvenating Toner – $24.99USD
With a touch of witch hazel to tighten pores and sea kelp to moisturize and calm skin, this tiny toner is perfect for the girl on the go! The spray nozzle and small size make it great for travelling or to keep in your purse for quick hydration or a makeup refresher.
