Wow. I mean, WOW! I was a bit bummed that it took a few days for me to get my Ipsy bag after I got the notification, and then I open it and it only has five things in it :/
But those five things!
I was really hoping to get nice lively colors, and other than the grey eye shadows, the colors were pretty awesome. The nail polish is Nicka K New York in Ripe Apple, retails for $4.99. This is very much the shade of red polish I am immediately drawn to.
Next was Be A Bombshell: The One Stick in Sunset, retails for $16. I was so confused when I opened the package, but I'm excited to get to play with it. I love the orangey color! Much better than a bland coral.
J. Cat Big Lip Pencil in Caramel Mocha, retails $3.99. It is a much richer and creamier color in person than it is on their website. A very similar color and consistency to the The One Stick, but a tad darker. I am very glad that neither is scented.
Pop Beauty eye shadows in Naturally Bare, retails ~$7.20. These are what I would consider the dud in my bag. If I'm going to wear eye shadow, I normally want something noticeable. We'll see once I actually try it out.
Mirabella Eye Blender Brush, retails $27. OMG IT IS SO FLUFFY! This one is pretty fantastic.
TOTAL: $59.18. Not bad. Not bad at all!

November 27, 2013, at 5:36 pm, my much loved 5 qt Kitchenaid mixer decided to commit sepuku over a box of gf cookie dough. Ten minutes later, I dragged Dan to BB&B to get a replacement. My lovely brother offered to get me a 6qt for christmas!
