Destination Beauty? Send me there please! That's Ipsy's March Glam Bag's theme this month. Can you imagine what Destination Beauty would look like? I picture it as an island where the temperature is always 70-80 degrees (never humid of course), we all have gorgeous tans, our mani/pedis never chip and they hand out YSL lipsticks with your margaritas. What's your idea of paradise?

Destination Beauty - Exotic beaches or a simple stay-cation - what beautiful destination is your March Glam Bag getting ready for?

The Bag: Oh my goodness. I think this is my favorite bag yet. It's just so cute and fun looking! It was designed by an Ipsy reader (I think. I threw out the tag. Crap!) and there's future opportunities  for us to design a bag. That would be SO awesome!

Klorane Smoothing & Relaxing Patches 
I have yet to use these but I promise it's for a good reason. I'm saving these babies for when I really need them because they look amazing. I've heard awesome reviews so I'm excited to try them. 

Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in Honey Beige
Wahhh. This looked fantastic but unfortunately, it's not anywhere near my skintone. Even with a fake tan, it's pushing it. I love a good BB cream so I'm interested in seeing if anyone liked this.

Be A Bombshell Eyeshadow Quad in Bora Bora
I just about passed out when I saw this quad. These are basically all my favorite eyeshadow colors for spring/summer in one palette! Clockwise: Bora Bora is a bold turquoise that reminds me of the color of the water you see in, well, Bora Bora. This all makes sense now. Opaque and easy to blend. Risky Business is an antique gold. Very bold and smooth to work with. Rock Bottom is a gorgeous bronze copper. Another shade that is super easy to work with and pigmented. Lastly, Starlet is a shimmery chocolate brown and guess what? Yup. A dream to work with. This whole palette is extremely pigmented, easy to work with and I can't wait to play!

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie in Rebel
Oh swoon! I was really excited to see this in my bag. I was just talking about this lipgloss with my mom and how I wanted to try it out. Rebel is a light, sheer pink. It has some pigmentation but not a lot. I love that this lipgloss smells exactly like Thin Mints (yummm!) and leaves your lips feeling tingly. Nothing annoying though.

Overall, this bag is actually full of win! My last few bags I wasn't really thrilled with some of the products but this one won me back. My favorites are definitely the Moxie lipgloss and the eyeshadow quad. The only real miss was the BB cream but it's only because it was too dark for me.
