I've heard so much about the Ipsy bag that I finally decided I had to get it. It's a monthly subscription of four to five deluxe to full size beauty products. It's $16 CDN. (10 USD + 4.95 shipping to Canada) I wanted to try a month and see if it was worth the hype. This month's theme was "Sensationally Sunkissed", I received five items this month. I really like that this monthly subscription comes with a makeup bag with the products in it. Here are the products that I received.

bareMinerals Ready Eye shadow 2.0, Elizabeth Mott Tints & Sass, Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil SPF 08, Marrakesh Hair Care Marrakesh Endz, and wHet nail polish in Facetious.

The bareMinerals Ready Eye shadow 2.0 is called Inspiration, it's a light lilac purple and darker sparkly purple. They're not chalky and very easy to blend. I was surprised to see how pigmented it is. It's a good size. I like that it comes in its own palette packaging. This will be useful when I travel. The packaging also shows you how to create a day and night look.The full size is $20.

I've never heard of Elizabeth Mott before. But I really love this Tints & Sass in the shade Cherry. It's a nice deep red colour. This smells like cherries. It's a cheek and lip stain. I don't really like using these as a cheek stain since they tend to dry fast and don't blend very well. This reminds me of the Benetints. I really like this colour for the lips. It is a bit patchy when applied though.  This is a full size! It's $22.

The Maarakesh Hair Care - Marrakesh Endz Split End Mender & Preventer is an Argan oil, and Hemp Seed oil  that strengthens, repairs and prevents damaged hair. It's a cream when you squeeze it out of the tube, when you rub your hands together it turns into an oil. I love the smell of this as soon as I opened up my Ipsy bag I could smell this. It smells like Argan oil. I really love this and definitely will be purchasing the full size.It doesn't make your hair feel greasy or heavy. The 1 oz size that I received is $5.99

The wHet nail polish in Facetious is a bright blue colour. I am a nail polish hoarder therefore I already have a similar colour to this. I ended up giving this to my sister. It's a chip resistant, high shine, vegan polish that is "three free" and doesn't have any chemicals. It's made in the USA and not tested on animals. I received the 10ml size. The full size is 15ml for $15.

Lastly the Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil SPF 08. I don't really need to tan since I am dark skinned. I can't really comment on how good this is. I did try it and I think it's just an oil that you put on before tanning. I wish I wasn't sent this. I thought that by the quiz they make you do at the beginning that they would see that I'm dark skinned and that it doesn't suit my skin tone. The site says that it's a dark tanning oil that has vitamins, antioxidants, and exotic plant extracts. I got a 1 fl oz, the full size is 4 fl oz for $11.99

I really liked all the products I got in this months bag except for the nail polish since I already have a colour like it and the Tanning oil since I don't tan. I'm going to try another month of the Ipsy bag to see if it's better. This month I wasn't that impressed.
