February 2013 Glam Bag

The February Glam Bag was all about products that would help get you "Red Carpet Ready."  While most of us don't have an actual red carpet to prepare for, many of us want to look extra glamorous this month for Valentine's day.  This month's Glam Bag featured an assortment of makeup products to help create a glitzy look.

My February Glam Bag included:

Coastal Scents - Shadow Palette Sample ($24.95/252 Shadows*)
Coastal Scents Shadow Palette Samples are an ideal way to try these highly pigmented, stunning shadows.  These miniature-sized samples contain four hand-selected shadows by Ipsy, making it easy to create a variety of looks.  Wear these pressed powders dry or wet for a more intese, dramatic look.

Sample size: 0.07 oz
Sample value:  $0.39 (*based on price per oz. of the 252 Ultimate Palette)

Pixi - Flawless & Poreless Primer ($29.00/1.01 oz)
The Pixi Flawless & Poreless primer creates a beautiful no-shine finish for flawless, long-lasting makeup application.  This shine controlling, oil-free primer smooths out fine lines and hydrates while making pores instantly disappear.  It is the perfect skin primer for all complexions and all skin types.

Sample size: 0.5 oz
Sample value: $14.36

POP Beauty - Smokey Lash Kapow Mascara ($18.50/0.25 oz)
This lash-POP-ing mascara makes lashes plump, long and lusciously flirty!  Smudge proof formula adds volume while curling lashes up and out for a look that truly POPs your peepers!

Sample size: 0.17 oz
Sample value: $12.58

MicaBeauty - Gel Eyeliner ($35.00/0.18 oz)
Define eyes and apply eyeliner like a pro with the MicaBeauty Gel Eyeliner!  This smooth, highly pigmented gel eyeliner glides over the lid evenly and dries quickly for a long-wearing, smudge-proof finish.

Sample size: unknown (~0.1 oz)
Sample value: unknown (~$19.44)

Lash Card - The Lash Card ($6.99/10 pack)
Apply your mascara perfectly with the Lash Card!  Say goodbye to smudging, clumping, and messy mascara application.  The Lash Card has two curves on each side that fit a variety of eye shapes, making it easy to get those hard-to-reach lashes.

Sample size: 4 cards
Sample value: $2.80

Total box value: ~$49.57

I'm pretty pleased with my bag again this month!  I'm not as over the moon excited to try any of the products as they're all pretty basic, but they're nice staples and I'll certainly get use out of them.  I was really curious about the Coastal Scents eye shadows.  I've heard so many things about their shadow palettes over the years and have been curious about the quality (considering they are so affordable).  I'm pleased to say these four shades I received felt buttery smooth and swatched with nice pigmentation.  I'm looking forward to trying the Pixi primer and the MicaBeauty gel liner.  I have a few gel liners in my collection, but the black liner I currently own isn't the most creamy or pigmented, so I'm hoping this one will be great!  I probably won't get around to trying the POP mascara for a while as I have so many tubes open and tons of samples tubes waiting in the wings.  The Lash Cards I've actually tried before via Birchbox.  They're a little unnecessary, but do serve a purpose and they're handy when you're doing a particularly dramatic eye look with lots of mascara.  All in all, a nice assortment of products (including a whole eye look) and a great value!
