Review: IPSY January 2014 Glam bag

I got this bag early last week but due to work pressure couldn't find time to do a post... So here is my take on January 2014 Ipsy Glam Bag which is described as ' 19 reason to make it an amazing new year, a million reasons to be a beautiful new you!'

I love their hot pink cover, makes you feel like opening a great gift. I am not so impressed  by the Blue bag this month, showing NY[?] skyline but its nice.

I got 5 products - all mini sized- I would have hope that for a New Year bag they would have at least 1 full sized product, but no complaints.

Since I have a very oily scalp I rarely invest much in conditioners as they feel very heavy usually and difficult to wash off especially on a weekday. Even if I use them, I apply them to the hair tips. I use hair oils to pamper my scalp but this looks like something I can may be try since it is a leave-in. 

Always happy to try another tinted lip balms as lippies of color are my favorite. I have heard of this brand but this is the 1st time I am trying something from them.

I got the shade Natural which is a pretty pinkish nude, which comes of more pinkish on my skin than in the jar. I would have preferred a lip balm that is in a tube version as a jar is difficult to carry & use hygienically. But I like the pigmentation of the product but I am not sure how moisturizing this is.The texture felt slightly off to me - not the usual glossy feel of a lip balm. I need to try this out more to give a better review.

Elizabeth Mott sells 3 products through her website and this is one of them. I love this pencil and I will definitely try other shades. 

The shade Penny is a gorgeous golden copper shade, and it applies so smoothly and stays for such a long time. I swatched this and found it difficult to remove; it stayed even after I washed dishes, washed my hands with hand soap and finally got off when I used an eye makeup remover. Very Impressive!

Faith Aromatherapy Tahitian Monoi Anti-Aging Sugar Scrub is the least interesting product in this group for me, may be I will change my mind after using them a bit.

Nourish Organic Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion - can't say anything now as skin care review is a tricky area. Need to use this for a time to see if any effects. However cute packaging, and I am excited about the ingredients.

It says it evens out the skin tone, so good- let me try!

Overall, I am happy with this bag but I am not as impressed by this as by my December bag. Hoping for a more exciting one in February.
