January 2016 Ipsy

Good morning beauties!


I hope your day has started out fantastically!!!

Today I have the first Ipsy unboxing of the new year for you guys!


Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription that is $10.  It contains makeup, skin care, hair products and other beauty related items.  You take a beauty quiz first and they pick out 5 products for you each month.

The theme this month is:  “All Eyes on You.”


Klorane Floral Water Make-up Remover with Soothing Cornflower Sample:  Full Size= $24


This gentle floral micellar water, enriched with soothing and decongesting cornflower water, delicately and thoroughly removes all traces of make-up from face, eyes and lips. It’s alcohol free, paraben free and fragrance free – making it ideal for even the most sensitive eyes and skin.

  • 3-in-1 micellar cleanser, toner and eye make-up remover
  • Gently removes everyday make-up without water
  • pH similar to tears
  • Hypoallergenic


Normally, I don’t get too excited about receiving products like this.  But I am really intrigued, especially since it is paraben and fragrance free and is great for those of us with sensitive eyes and skin.



J. Cat Beauty Blinkle Shimmer Eyeshadow in 102 Tangerine Light Full Size! = $4.99


Effortlessly create eyes that WOW with this shimmer shadow. Its pigment will coat your eyes in super-saturated color with hints of ultra-fine shimmer. With every blink, the shimmer reflects the light and makes the eyes look desirable and sultry. Use a wet brush to achieve a foil finish.

  • Bold vivid color
  • Smooth and creamy
  • Can be used wet or dry


I really want to try this product but I’m a little unsure of the color.  It’s a little too orange for my liking.  I may end up gifting this to someone who I know will use it!




OFRA Cosmetics Universal Eyebrow Pencil Full Size!! = $13

OFRA’S Universal Eyebrow Pencil is the perfect solution for your eyebrows as this product is suitable for all skin tones. The more you apply the brow pencil the darker the color will get! It will also hold stray eyebrow hairs in place. This product can also double as an eyeliner or lip liner pencil!

  • Universal color suitable for all skin tones
  • Buildable color
  • Holds brow hairs in place



I received this product in my July 2015 Boxycharm and I’m so glad I have another one.

I really loved how the synthetic beeswax helped to hold my brow hairs in place and that it is also water resistant.


Beau Gachis Paris Smudge Brush Full Size!! = $12 (Currently on Sale for $9)


This Beau Gâchis® Paris Smudge Brush is ideal for creating that soft, smoldering smoky look. The shorter bristles allow this brush to pick up the right amount of shadow, allowing you to control how much you want to apply.

  • Excellent for blending colors or smudging out gel or other liners
  • Eco-friendly matte black wooden handle as used by professionals
  • Assembled by hand for exceptional quality


 I love received brushes in my subscription boxes!  This brush has soft yet sturdy bristles that I can see working exceptionally well with blending eye shadow.


theBalm Cosmetics Mr. Write (Now) Eyeliner Pencil in “Jac” Full Size!! = $17

These pencils deliver the long-lasting color you’ve been looking for, and have built-in sharpeners so they are always ready when you are. With high payoff, eight wearable shades, and a satin smooth texture, we understand why your eyes wander- but rest assured, your eyeliner won’t!

  • Long-lasting color with rich payoff
  • Smooth texture
  • Built in sharpener


I’ve loved pretty much everything I’ve tried from the Balm so I’m super excited to see how this eyeliner works out.  I’m really happy with the color I received which is a rich bronze.


I’m pretty impressed with this month’s products.  Very rarely do I receive more than 1 full size product, but this month I received 3!  YAY!


Stand out products this month:

  • theBalm eyeliner pencil
  • Smudge brush
