Ipsy Bag January 2014 "Fresh Start"

Our Ipsy bag for January 2014's theme is "Fresh Start" and the card reads: A kickoff so clean the possibilities are endless.  Get ready for a fantastic and flawless 2015.  I'm hoping that 2015 is an extraordinary year for Ipsy as I wasn't overly impressed with my bags in 2014.  Jut from opening my bag I'm already pleased with the items I got as the colors and items are perfect my taste other than the eyeliner.  I can see myself getting use from 4 out of 5 of the products.  The Elizabeth Mott eyeshadow brush will go to good use and it really is quite soft, we are no stranger to Elizabeth Mott as we've recently received a mascara, powder eyeshadow, and cream eyeshadow in past bags. Another returning brand in this bag was Pacifica with an eyeshadow, and I already know that I'm a huge fan of the brand from the nail polish, body butter, and Luminizing body butter we've previously received.  The only item in this month's bag that is so-so for me is the Hikari Eyeliner simple because I don't see myself using a charcoal gray eyeliner too much.  The oil based Malin + Goetz lip balm will definitely see some love as we are in the thick of Winter.  I can't wait to try out the Velvet 59 lip gloss, it's a nice neutral shade, is perfect for me. Swatches below, Enjoy!
