IPSY March 2015 Bag

I decided to cancel all my subscription boxes except for Ipsy lately. Meme box doesn't deliver to Canada anymore and although I'd love all the boxes I could get my hands on, I stopped at one for now. This is what was in this months bag for me along with mini reviews. I just wish Ipsy would give a details/info card with their monthly bags. If they can print a card with their brand faces and its social networks they should be able to advertise the products they're actually shipping to us.

3 in 1 Revolution LIGHT Toner Serum and moisture in ONE by Leanni Eco

$29.98 for 4 fl oz, 0.5 fl oz sample in the bag
Buy: LeAnni Eco 

I really like this moisturizer. I think the prices are fair (you really don't need much) and it works great. Bonus that it's vegan, it's not listed as cruelty free though. It's a light, off-white lotion that absorbs fairly quickly and leaves my skin feeling supple and moisturized. Even though this is light I think it may be too much for oily skin types in humid environments. Reasonable prices too. I would purchase this.

This is NOT listed on Pixi's website so I have no idea the worth. Is this something they made specifically for Ipsy?? They do have Mesmerizing Mineral PALETTE's which list for 11 Euro = 11.5USD/14.76CAD
Buy: Pixi by Petra

I understand the hype surrounding this company. These shadows feel like silk to touch and the pigmentation is quite nice. I would like to try some other colours and shimmers are the easiest shadows to get right. They're inexpensive and I believe a steal for what they're worth. I can see myself purchasing this.

This is a nice, cream underbrow highlight. it has pink undertones and is most suitable for those with fair/porcelain skin. I don't usually use a brow highlighting in pencil form (I use concealer or eyeshadow) but I do like the texture of this pencil. It leaves for a smooth base if you'd like to apply shadow on top of it. Covers brow hairs nicely as well. Isn't a drying formula and you can also use this to clean up makeup lines (I used it around my eyes to clean up shadow and worked nicely). I would prefer this if it had yellow undertones. It's a little more on the pricey side. Since this isn't a product I wouldn't normally use, I can't see myself purchasing this but I would be interested in their other products because I can see the quality in this.

Edit: I've been using this on a daily basis since I wrote it. I've changed my mind, I love this product now and would rebuy. I've been using it for everything. Nude liner on my waterline, primer, blemish concealer (colour correcting since it's peachy based), lining my lips, cleaning up lines... just wonderful!

Price: $6.00USD

I have used NYX before and I like this. This isn't as pigmented as I was hoping for (their round lipsticks are still one of my favourites) but this has a great moisturizing formula. It leaves a nice, satin finish. The colour I received  was Hunk which is something I would pick out for myself. It's a nice vibrant, cool toned fuchsia colour.
