Marvelous Moxie™ Lipstick in Get Ready

Nicole by OPI
Roughles

Pacifica
Body Butter

Be a Bombshell
Bora Bora Eyeshadow Quad

Marvelous Moxie in Get Ready — Make an impact with Marvelous Moxie™ Lipstick. Creamy, super-saturated, ultra-pigmented color glides on like butter for full coverage in a rich satin finish. Lips look fuller and more voluptuous. An infusion of minerals revitalizes lips for a healthy-looking pout, while a moisture-loaded hydrating complex helps to nourish and condition with Abyssinian Oil and Omega Fatty Acids for supple, baby-soft smoothness. All the while, an encapsulated vitamin A, C and E complex helps to deliver antioxidant defense, so you’re ready for anything—and everything.

I already own a larger size of this so I will still review it BUT will include this one in a giveaway I have planned soon. WHoot Whoot 😀

Nicole by OPI Roughles in On What Grounds — Nicole by OPI launches Roughles (“ruffles”) – 4 new textured nail lacquers featuring speckled, pastel shades of purple, pink, turquoise and yellow. When the lacquer dries, Roughles lacquers reveal a unique pebbled finish. For the perfect matte effect, skip the top coat!

Though the color is beautiful. I don’t like this color for myself. This will be another giveaway item.

Pacifica Body Butter in Indian Coconut Nectar — Smell incredible with our nourishing and anti-oxidant rich ingredients. The Pacifica Body Butter helps fight signs of aging while adding deep moisture and protection. Made with nature’s best moisturizers – shea butter, almond oil and safflower oil – Pacifica’s paraben-free Body Butter is a skin must-have. Now available in tubes in our best-selling fragrances, making them easy to take with you anywhere.
Be a Bombshell Eyeshadow Quad in Bora Bora — The Bora Bora Eyeshadow Quad contains a highly pigmented long lasting formula for all day wear. To use as an eyeliner, wet the tip of your brush and dip end into the shadow and apply on lash line. For base colors, blend shadow from lash line to brow bone with a wide shadow brush using gentle upward strokes. For accent colors, blend shade in the outer crease of your eye gently working inward. Gently blend base and accent colors together using light, feathery strokes. For highlighting, gently brush under brow bone.

I LOVE this thing. Not to give it away already lol but the colors are beautiful.

That was it for Ipsy this month. Only four things boo hoo and only two I will use. But that Bora Bora makes it worth it!!

Ok Birchbox next.Same speel about ipsy applies to Birchbox. My link is here.

This Month's Box

Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensee Cologne Absolue — We fell in love with Atelier Cologne’s Vanille Insensée Cologne Absolue at first sniff. Unlike most vanilla scents, this highly concentrated blend of jasmine, vanilla, and lime is fresh, not sweet. Happily, the long-lasting fragrance lasts all day — we’re smitten and you will be too.

Vasanti Brighten up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator — To fully appreciate this professional-grade scrub, a brief skincare lesson is in order. Let’s start with enzymes: These potent molecules actually dissolve the bonds that hold dead skin cells together. Next up are microderm crystals: ultrafine minerals that buff away tired skin. Vasanti’s multi-action exfoliator features both these skincare wonders, plus healing natural ingredients to get the jump on irritation. The result? Renewed, refreshed skin without any redness.How it Works — This powerful exfoliator mimics the results of professional microdermabrasion, minus the potential for redness and sensitivity. First, papaya enzymes break down dead cells while evening out your skin tone. Next, dermatologist-approved microderm crystals fade the appearance of fine lines and acne scars, leaving skin smooth and free of imperfections. Finally, aloe vera, coconut, and vitamins B and E nourish fresh skin to keep it free of irritation.How to Use —Three to five times a week, wet your face and massage a pea-sized amount of product into skin, concentrating on trouble zones. Rinse away. Used consistently, a single tube will last you four to six months.

theBalm cosmetics How ‘Bout Them Apples — Like Matt Damon’s famous one-liner in Good Will Hunting, this dual-purpose cream palette from theBalm® is destined to be a classic. Each one of these easy-to-blend shades can be used on both cheeks and lips, and they won’t streak or fade once applied. Have your way with six orchard-inspired colors, from a perky Cobbler red to a demure and sophisticated Caramel.

Obliphica Intensive Hair Serum — Sometimes the best treatments take time and maintenance, but in a 140 character-based world, sometimes we want a little more instant gratification. Once applied, this nourishing serum gets to work, reviving damaged, colored, and all-around unmanageable hair without weighing it down—for a smooth, shiny Instagram-worthy finish.

Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream — There’s no shortage of options when it comes to finding a heroic BB cream or tinted moisturizer for the face. But for years, self-tanner was our only option when it came to perfecting the skin on our arms and legs. Enter our latest Birchbox Find: a complexion-correcting moisturizer for the whole body. This five-in-one formula from Jergens® works on multiple levels to hydrate, illuminate, visibly firm, even skin tone, and reduce the appearance of imperfections. As if that weren’t enough, it absorbs into skin faster than you can say “flaky.” You’ll see visible results in as little as five days.

Alright so I will have my results middle of next month though I am behind on February’s review. Where did this month go?????
