This month, my ipsy bag had only 4 items, and at first, I thought it was a little "light" compared to past months. But with time, I have come to really appreciate this month's haul. Actually, 3 of the 4 items were full-size: the NYX Love in Rio shadow palette, the Pixi primer and the wonderful Chella indigo blue felt tip eyeliner. Only the Bare Minerals lipstick in Marvelous Moxie, a gorgeous shade of shiny, deep pink-red, was a mini...and I wish it were full size because I like it so much. I haven't really given the Pixi primer a real test yet, but I've used the other products and I like them a lot. The eyeliner has a thin felt tip and is easy to apply and the color is spectacular! I like the NYX shadow palette. It's good for a smoky eye or just a regular eye look. I used the white in the corner, the grey on my lid, and the black as an eyeliner and it was fine used on top of an eye primer.
And I adore the makeup bag this month. Altho the print is by Klari Reis, a West Coast artist, who was inspired by San Francisco. I think she was inspired by Albert Alcalay, an artist from the mid-century. The print looks like a number of his paintings, inspired by New York City! At any rate, the bag is definitely worth $10.
