I hate to start with a downer, but I’m not in love with this bag. I’m going to try to swap this item. More artist collaboration bags, Ipsy!

Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm in “Acid Pink”- FULL SIZE!- Value $19. This is hands down my favorite item in the box. I was hoping for this product, in exactly this shade. Let me tell you. IT IS GLORIOUS. See swatches below.

Kiss Looks So Natural Faux Lashes in “Shy”- FULL SIZE!- Value $3.99. As soon as I opened the bag, Celeste whipped her hand in and snatched these lashes. She stole them for a special event she has coming up, so she can have them. 🙂

City Color White Gold Shadow and Highlight Mousse- FULL SIZE! – Value $3.99. I’m super intrigued by this product. Although I was initially sort of bummed to be trying a City Color product, I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful white-gold shade. (See below for swatch.) I think this may be too bright and shimmery to use as a highlighter, but I’m really excited to use this as an eyeshadow base and brightener. Count me happily surprised!

I paid $10 for the Ipsy “Beauty Rocks” bag, and received more than $45 in product value. More importantly, though, I think all of these products will be put to very good use. I’m off to play with that hot pink balm now!
