Ipsy - January 2015 - Sneak Peeks!

It's a new year, and a new month, which means, Ipsy sneak peeks!

The theme for the month is "Fresh Start" - I'm anticipating a lot of skin care products, like last January.

We were given early access again (I love that they are doing this now!) so my glam room will be posted at the end of this post.

Sneak Peek #1
I've noticed over the past few months, Ipsy has stopped "hiding" their products. Before Ipsters pretty much had to search for the products, and now they are in plain view.

In this sneak peek we will all receive ONE of the following items:
- Bella Pierre Shimmer Powder (You will receive one of the following shades: Celebration, Excite, Whesek - eyeshadow)
- Lashfood  Phyto-Medic Lash Enhancer (a serum for your lashes!)
- Swissco Electroplated Eyelash Curler (This has been in the past 2 bags I believe)
- Hikari Mechanical Eyeliner
- Coastal Scents Liquid Eyeliner
- J.Cat Beauty Fantabulous Gel Eyeliner

This sneak peek is okay for me. I'd be happy with pretty much anything besides the eyelash curler. If I were to get the eyeshadow, I'd prefer the lighter shade, or the gold.

Sneak Peek #2

I wasn't too impressed with this sneak peek. Everyone will receive ONE of the following items:

- Elizabeth Mott All Over Eyeshadow Brush
- Probelle Into The Blue Nail Lacquer
- Manna Kadar Sheer Glo
- Laura Mercier Foundation Primer
- Velvet 59 Velvet Rose Lip Gloss

I wasn't impressed with this spoiler because everyone has eyeshadow brushes already, the blue is not a shade I would wear, at least on my nails. I received the Manna K sheer glo back in August, I'm not a fan of primers, and the lip gloss colour would not look good with my skin tone. I guess out of them all, I would like the brush.

Sneak Peek #3

If anyone follows Ipsy online (through forums, their facebook page, unsubscribed but still get emails begging for you to come back) then you would have seen this spoiler about a week ago. This sneak peek wasn't a surprise, and also isn't exciting at all.

All members will receive ONE of two Pacificia Natural Mineral Coconut eyeshadows. The shades being offered are Ethereal (lighter shade) or Treasure (gold shade). Between the two, I would probably get more use out of the lighter shade, but both are okay.

I also hope these are better than the last pacifica shadows we got a few months ago. I was sent the purple/white duo and the pigmentation was not good at all. The purple was so light, and the white was more like a gold sparkle when it was applied. Please be better this month.

Sneak Peek #4

Another sneak peek, where we will receive ONE of the following products:

- Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm (this is a repeat from past bags)
- Teadora Rainforest at Dark Nourishing Body Cream
- Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer
- Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush
- Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush (repeat from spoiler 1)
- Hey Honey Take It Off Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask (I believe this was also in past bags)

This is an improvement, at least to me, for products, even if they have been repeats. I'd love to try either the mojito lip balm, or hey honey mask. I'd be happy with the liner brush if I were to get the gel liner (which is probably what they will send together.) The only thing I really wouldn't be happy with is the body cream, I have so much of it and I don't really use it.

Sneak Peek #5

Since the glam rooms were given early access, we already know what we will all be receiving. In the last spoiler we can expect to see:

- Astrida Naturals Orange Mint Lip Balm with Shea Oil
- Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Moisturizer
- LA Fresh Eco Beauty Day Moisturizer
- Nourish Organic Renewing Eye Cream (I believe this is a repeat)
- Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm (in previous spoiler)

The bag

The bag this month was shown in emails sent out to certain members. So, this is what it will look like:

The blue is nice, I'm not a fan of the orange zipper, but I'm sure I will use it, and if not, I'm sure someone else will really like it. I'm hoping it will be canvas instead of plastic.

My Glam Room

I have to say, I'm not entirely let down by this bag. I was expecting something much worse, because of the lame bags I have been getting recently. Everything here will be used. I will be getting:

- Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush - yay pink brush!
- Hikari Cosmetics Mechanical Eye Liner in Storm (Slate Gray) - good change from black
- Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm - I've wanted to try this from past bags, happy to finally get it
- Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow - shade unknown, we're all getting this anyway
- Probelle Into The Blue Nail Lacquer - I would have been happier with a different shade, but I will use this on my toes, or gift it.
