Ipsy: January Bag Review

The snow is falling today in Kentucky! We’ve got about 3 inches on the ground here in Morehead. Before trudging out into this white winter day, I checked my mail and found my January Ipsy bag!

I’ve been meaning to start an Ipsy review, here on the blog, every month when I get my bag. But, life happens and I haven’t managed to do so yet. But January is the “month of new” so I’m getting a start now! Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t gotten your January bag yet, and you don’t want me to spoil the fun for you, stop reading!

First of all, the bag this month is pretty adorable! It’s a mesh sporty bag with neon shoe string zipper pulls. I think I’ll throw this one in my gym bag for hair tie’s and such!


What’s Inside?

REAL CHEMISTRY – Fresh-Start Foaming Cleanser

I already LOVE this brand of skin care products, so I’m super excited to try this new cleanser. I have previously used their peel product in this same line that I received in a previous Ipsy bag.


NYX – Lip Lingerie in Beauty Mark

NYX Liquid Lipsticks have been a favorite of mine for quite some time! I absolutely love this color for fall and winter! I’m already wearing it and it’s holding up really well! You can find these at most drugstores, ULTA, and online, so it’s super easy to purchase, no matter where you live.


F.A.R.A.H BRUSHES – Z-Tweeze Dual Ended Tweezer

I have to admit, this is the coolest beauty tool I’ve seen in a while! I am frequently utilizing both styles of tweezers, so having this double ended pair make it super convenient! They’re easy to use, and great quality!


LUE BY JEAN SEO – Balance Hydrating and Calming Serum

I’m really excited about this product. This is a brand that I haven’t heard of before, but the skincare items I get in my Ipsy bag always end up being my favorite! This hydrating serum is oil-free, and helps control shine while giving your skin some serious moisture!



I’ve had a few other City Color products in previous bags, and I have to say, I’m impressed! The pigment is great in this mini-contour palette and the colors are great for all skin tones! This brand is also cruelty-free, which makes it a total win in my book!

If you’ve been considering an Ipsy bag, but haven’t taken the step, I would definitely recommend that you do! I absolutely LOVE getting my bag every month and I consistently use the products. I don’t buy mascara anymore, simply because I always have a new one every couple months in my Ipsy bag! You’ll find your favorite brands, and you’ll be introduced to new one’s, that will quickly become your favorites!
