Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil 

“This fresh and pretty neutral pencil will brighten and visibly lift your eyes when lightly applied on the brow bone, dark circles, blemishes and redspots.”

–Chella.com

This nifty pencil really did hide blemishes.  It didn’t last as long as I’d hoped, but it was a good match and would work with a lot of different skin tones.

Retail Value:  $18.00

NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Spice

“More delicious than peaches and cream? We like to think so. Our velvety smooth mineral Rouge Cream Blush offers a sheer wash of radiant color. The glorious payoff is dewy, sultry and long-lasting.”

–NyxCosmetics.com

This blush is beautiful. PB14 SPICE is the perfect shade for me and is just lovely. I’m really pleased with this one.

Retail Value: $5.00

Starlooks Lip Liner in Bare

“Starlooks’ long-lasting, full-coverage Lip Pencil enhances the shape of your lips and gives them perfect contour and definition, with high-end quality you’ve never before experienced. This creamy, moisturizing formula glides on softly to smooth lips and ensure lipstick stays in place, while extending its wear. Can also be used as an allover, highly-pigmented lip color.”

I don’t use a lipliner all the time, but this one was very nice. It goes on smoothly…didn’t tug at my lip when I applied it. I’ll look for a new lipstick to coordinate with it.

Retail Value: $12.00

J. Cat glitter paletteJ. Cat Beauty Sparkling Cream Palette in Volta 

“Everyone loves a little sparkle! Add a healthy dosage of sparkle in your life with the cream palette that comes in a variety of complementing colors. The creamy texture allows the sparkle to be applied easily with an applicator onto your skin.”

– from Ipsy.com

I haven’t tried this one. These glittery creams are pretty pretty in the pot, but they are “not suitable for use around the eye area,” as stated by J.Cat.  Ipsy let everyone know that as well by commenting to countless questions on their Facebook page, and mentioning it on the product page on ipsy.com. “It is meant to be used as body glitter, not eye shadow.  Use it for body art, body glitter, or a little added shine to your lipgloss!”  I don’t really have a need for this in my beauty regimen, so maybe I can used it a Halloween or for a holiday party.

Retail Value: $4.49

Cailyn Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner in 06 Purple

Cailyn eye liner“Whether you are trying to create the eyes of a runway model or the classic look of a 60’s Hollywood star, the Cailyn Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner can make any style possible!

Once dry, the gel is smudge-proof and waterproof for 24 hours. The highly concentrated pigment of the liner creates lusciously smooth lines and is safe for sensitive eyes.”

–Ipsy.com

Love, love, love!  That’s all I can say about this little pot of magic! The Purple shade I received looks very nice with blue eyes. I’d love to try the black one, too.

Retail Value: $21.00

Overall: The retail value of this month’s bag was really awesome – over $60!  Ipsy does it again!
