February's Glam Bag from Ipsy

Here are the items I received in my February Ipsy Glam Bag. If you aren't familiar with Ipsy, it's a $10 monthly subscription sample service similar to Birchbox, although it seems to concentrate more on makeup than Birchbox does.

But I think I may be sampled out.... I just wasn't impressed with my Ipsy bag this month and will be cancelling it too.

POP Beauty Smokey Lash Kapow Mascara- I haven't tried this yet, because many girls who got it are saying it is very wet and smudges terribly.

MicaBeauty Gel Eyeliner- I received the black, and I will definitely give it a try. Luckily I do have a liner brush already- if you did not, you'd have to buy one before you could use this. Altough I did receive a full-sized product, it normally comes with a brush and retails for $30.

Lash Card- not something I'd use because mascara application without it is fine for me- maybe someome with super-long lashes would get a benefit from it?

Pixi Flawless & Poreless Primer sample- I now officialy have too many primer samples to count. I have used a few Pixi items from Target and I was pleased with their quality. I just don't need any more primer right now! I actually don't even use primer because I feel it clogs my pores and causes more breakouts for me.

Coastal Scents Shadow Palette sample- it sounds as there there were two versions of the palette sent out- the gold/olive shades I received, and a smokey eye set. Since I have blue eyes, I don't think the colors I received are very well suited for me- I imagine they would be much better for people with brown or green eyes. Coastal Scents is not a brand I am familiar with, but a brand that sells an eye shadow palette with 120 shades for $20 doesn't seem very high-quality to me.

Are you an Ipsy subscriber? Were you pleased?
