Guess what came in today? As you can tell from the title, it was my February bag!
This month’s theme is “Red Carpet Ready.” My bag included 5 items:
- Pixi Flawless and Poreless Primer
- MICA Beauty Gel Liner in LC 48 (?)
- Pop Beauty Smoky Lash Kapow!!! in No. 1 Smoky Black
- Coastal Scents Min Eyeshadow Quad in In the Spotlight
- Lash Card Mascara Shields
Since I just received my bag, I haven’t had time to try out any of the products, but if I end up really liking them, I’ll do an individual post. For now, I’ll talk about the products in order.
Pixi is a brand that you can get from Target, but despite this, I haven’t actually tried any of the products. Because of this, I’m pretty excited that this was included in this month’s bag. I especially love trying new primers since my skin is super oily and I’m always trying to find a primer that keeps all the oil at bay. The bottle says that this primer is:
Oil free. Hydrating. Hypoallergenic. For all skin types.
This primer doesn’t feel like a typical silicone based primer; its creamy and slightly tinted. Unfortunately, it has a slight scent that reminds me of the “play” makeup that you give to little kids.
I’ve never heard of the brand Mica Beauty, but the gel liner just reminds me of the Maybelline one, so I’ll have to see what the quality is like.
If I could only have one beauty product, it would be mascara, so I’m always excited to get new samples even though I have plenty. I’ve also never used Pop beauty even though I see their products at Ulta all the time. I’m really excited about this mascara and will let you know what I think!
In a previous bag, I received a Coastal Scents Quad, but I like this one better. The colors are so beautiful and pigmented. I also feel that while they seem kind of intimidating (I usually stick to neutrals), they appear surprisingly wearable. The colors included in this quad include (Left to right, Top to Bottom): Dark Goldenrod, Sunbeam, Golden Globe, and Dark Golden Olive.
Lastly, when I pulled the Lash Card package out of the bag, I got super excited. Once I opened the little package, I was kinda disappointed. I read “mascara shields” and thought that it would be a plastic, guitar pick-esque mascara shields (like the one that comes with the Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara), but instead they were just disposable paper ones. I was looking forward to this product because my lashes are so thin and sparse. I always manage to get mascara all over my eyelid, and using a Q-Tip often disrupts and smashes my lashes together, so this could potentially be a lifesaver. Anyways, the package includes 4 shields (which are printed backwards O.O) and each one has a large curve and a small curve.
Hopefully these still perform well, and if they do I’ll definitely let you guys know!
So that’s it for this month’s bag! I hope you enjoyed this post and have a great evening!
