Ipsy Glam Bag Subsription Box Review – January 2019

Hi all!  I hope you’re doing well and having a great weekend!  I signed up for Ipsy again at the beginning of January and was told my subscription would start with the February bag, but I also went on the waiting list for Glam Bag Plus (I’m going to try it again).  I got off of that waiting list and will now be charged and receive February’s Glam Bag Plus, so they just sent me a January Glam Bag!

Ipsy Glam Bag is only $10 a month (Glam Bag Plus is $25)  It’s deluxe samples and some full sized products. You can sign up for these at ipsy.com.

Here’s what I got:

YENSA PUMPKIN TURMERIC 2-in-1 Radiance Polishing Mask

LUXIE BEAUTY 1010 Small Contour Brush

KASCA Nail Polish in Velvet Black Matte

FLUIDE Lip Gloss in Elsewhere

CIATÉ LONDON Wonderwand Mascara in Black Magic
This is an okay bag.  I think since they packed it last minute, I got the strange leftovers. My favorite items is the Luxie Brush.  It’s really soft and blends contour nicely. I haven’t tried the Ciate mascara yet, because I want to save it for later or if I travel this year.  I will also try the Yensa mask.  I did try the Fluide lip gloss and it is very shiny and minty.  I don’t know how often I use it.  I will give the black nail polish to one of my daughters.
I am excited to get my Glam Bag Plus in February.  I will be posting a review once I do!
Do you get Ipsy Glam Bag or Glam Bag Plus?  What did you get in your January Bag?

Ipsy Glam Bag Plus Review — October 2018

IMG_2274

Hi all!  I’m so excited that I received my first Ipsy Glam Bag Plus ($25 USD) –October is the first month for the Glam Bag Plus.  It is a box that will always include 5 full-sized items. The first month has six items but I believe each month after that will have 5.

I had looked in my Ipsy account and saw what I was getting.  At first I wasn’t that excited, but the more I looked, the more I got excited for it!  For $25 a month, this is such a good bag!

Here is what I received:

Each quarter, Ipsy Glam Bag plus subscribers will get a premium makeup bag in addition to their 5 items. (That means you’ll receive a box of 5 beauty items every month, but a glam bag only once every 3 boxes.) This one is a soft pink color and has burgundy accents.  It’s really nice quality.

I don’t wear liquid liner or do wings.  If I wear a liner I like to smudge a brown or plum liner on my lash line.  I don’t wear black because it’s too harsh on me.  So I’ll probably be giving this to my daughter.

I enjoy tarte mascaras, but I haven’t tried this one yet.  It claims to define lashes without clumps.  And you can build up to lengthen and volumize. I’m looking forward to trying it!

This is one of the products I was really excited about!  This is an exfoliating mask that is supposed to be gentle.  I do have sensitive skin and hope it works well for me.

I have never tried Morphe makeup before, and have just one brush from the brand. So I was very excited to try this.  I’ve tried it a couple of times and am trying to figure out if I like it. It’s very metallic and shows texture.  I do like the color, though.

This was another item I was looking forward to trying.  I haven’t tried anything from this brand either.  This is so hydrating and the shade is beautiful! This is a total win!

This is an item I wasn’t really excited for and i was thinking of giving it away — and then I saw Andrea Matillano swatch this on You Tube.  And I changed my mind!  It is gorgeous.  I am hoping to review it and I will swatch it if I do.

So, maybe I wasn’t as excited when I first saw what I was getting, but I really liked this box! I will keep the eye shadow, mascara, mask, and lip butter.  I might keep the highlighter, or give it away and I will giveaway the eyeliner.  And I will keep the pretty bag!

Ipsy Glam Bag Subsription Box Review – September 2018

Hi All!  I’m back with another subscription box review — Ipsy Glam Bag.  I subscribed to Ipsy years ago, but stopped.  I decided I wanted to try it again to try new products. They also have a larger box available starting next month, the Ipsy Glam Bag Plus.  I just got on the waiting list for that, so I’m not sure when I will receive it.

Ipsy Glam Bag is $10 a month for 5 deluxe and sometimes full-sized items.  It used to be only makeup, but it seems to now be skincare and makeup. You can sign up for it here.

If you do sign up with my link, I’ll get pushed higher up on the waiting list for the Ipsy Glam Bag Plus and that would be amazing! And then you would be eligible for the Glam Bag Plus waitlist! The Glam Bag Plus is $25 a month and looks to be 5 full-sized items.

Here are the products I received in my first bag:

The bag is super cute!  It’s nice quality, too.  I was pleasantly surprised!

These are the products with the descriptions from the Ipsy website:

Elizabeth Mott Face Primer — The silky, lightweight formula also shuts down shine and helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and pores (it’s like a real-life Insta-filter!).It’s waterproof, so there’s no chance of your makeup sliding off if you get caught in the rain.

APTO Healing Turmeric Mask — This lightweight mask is packed with natural, skin-healing ingredients. Turmeric and neem travel deep into your skin’s pores to draw out impurities. They also have strong antibacterial properties and help reduce redness and inflammation, making them great acne-fighters. Azelaic acid gently sloughs away dead skin cells (no scrubbing needed) to reveal the fresh skin beneath and help restore your glow. Colloidal sulfur helps removes blackheads, deeply cleanses pores, and absorbs excess oil.

The Creme Shop 2-in-1 Facial Foam Cleanser — Packed with ingredients your skin loves—like green tea, rice water and white lily—this gentle, foamy formula is actually fun to use. Green tea is super rich in antioxidants and vitamins that help firm up and rejuvenate skin. Rice water and white lily help calm redness and treat acne scars.

MPrincess Loose Eyeshadow in Pretty Petal — This loose pigment shadow builds and blends really easily, so you can go for a lowkey or amped up eye look depending on your mood. It’s *so* fun to experiment with and plays well with your other shadows. (You can create endless looks by mixing and matching.) We love the dusty rose shade, which makes all eye colors really pop.

Luxie Beauty Wonder Woman Detail Tapered Blender 140 — LUXIE BEAUTY teamed up with Warner Brothers to bring us this limited-edition, Wonder Woman-inspired makeup brush. The synthetic bristles are soft and light yet pick up just the right amount of product with ease. The pointed brush head is great for targeting small areas (like applying concealer to your undereyes and inner corners of your nose).

When I first saw what I was getting, I wasn’t very excited.  From what I remember, Ipsy was a makeup subscription.  But it seems like now they include skincare.  Which I really don’t need as I have tons of skincare (and tons of makeup to be honest).  But I am excited to try the mask, it sound sounds like it will work well with my skin.  I don’t need a cleanser, but I like K-Beauty and I will keep it for travel. I have already tried the primer and it is pore filling.  And that brush!  I love Luxie and it’s really soft.  The shadow is a shimmery pink.  I don’t know if I will keep it or give it away, but it looks pretty!

I am happy with this bag!  Do you get Ipsy Glam Bag?  What did you get this month?
