Subscription Box Review: March Ipsy Glam Bag

Welcome to another Subscription Box Review! Check out my previous Subscription box reviews here.
I know, I've been away for a while from the blogosphere. Life's just been very crazy, as things have picked up work and theater stuff- I know, excuses excuses. We are in the midst of auditions for Shrek (which hubs and I are directing) so it's been so crazy. But, I'm aiming to get back into the blogging world to keep me sane once things pick up in the theater world. lol
Now, on to the subscription box review.

Marcy Ipsy Glam Bag:
So this month's Ipsy (I know I"m late to share this) was themed "Floral Fantasy." I had some loves, some oks and some ehs. 

I LOVE the shade of NYX Cosmetics butter lipstick I got. Reminds me a lot like the MaryKay Dusty Rose (which was my color for years). 

I wore it paired with the Velvet 59 lipgloss I got from my January Ipsy bag to a friend's wedding last weekend.

Used the lipstick and gloss to my friend's wedding last week, among a few other Ipsy products. :)
I also liked the Pixi by Petra Mesmerizing Mineral Duo- great neutrals. I always need a good brown and tan- since that's my go-to eyeshadow color combo. I'm not a huge makeup person (I wear makeup only on major occasions, when I'm being photographed for something special, or on theater) so I'm all about the neutral colors.

The next item I got was Pur~lisse Beauty's delicate gentle soymilk cleanser and makeup remover. I used it mostly as a cleanser, but I'm sure it does the job as a makeup remover too. 

Next, onto the other things I tried, but not sure how often I'll use them: Coolway's Glow Oil Treatment and Boo-Boo cover-up medium shade. I tried the boo-boo to cover up a big blemish I had on my forehead (but luckily my bangs cover most of it). It did it's job, but nothing that special- but then again, I don't have a lot of major boo-boos to cover up. I also tried a few drops of the glow oil on my hair for the wedding I went to- gave me some shine, but again, nothing earth shattering.

Overall, I got some good solid products in this month's glam bag. I was glad to get the eye shadow and lipstick the most, as well as the cleanser (I was in desperate need of a new cleanser).
Looking forward to next month's glam bag. Have you tried Ipsy? If so, what's your favorite item you've received?
Have a great day all!
