Ipsy Glam Bag is a beauty subscription that comes in a pink bubble mailer. It is $10USD per month and includes deluxe samples and full sized products. All of your products come in a reusable makeup bag. This months theme is Swim Into Beauty. All Ipsy bags are selected for the individual person so there is a wide variety of products possible to receive, based on answers you give to a survey and your reviews of your bags. There are plenty of spoilers with this one and you can see exactly what you will be getting a few days before your bag arrives by logging in to your account.
The included card lets you know the theme of the month and not much else. It really is just an advertisement for them and their stylists.
The bag this time is really fun! It seems like it might be a bit smaller then the other ones they normally send but it’s still good. The change up with the zipper on the front is nice too.
Ofra Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Bliss-$15.00
They say this can be either an eyeshadow or a highlighter. I occasionally use a highlighter but this will mostly be used as eyeshadow. The price I used is for a single pot but includes a case so it might be a touch high. This colour is super shimmery! I like the colour but it needs to be put on with a slight hand because it can get a bit garish if you put too much on.
Octavio Molina Hair La Playa Salt Spray-59mL $7.75
I think this is now the fourth salt spray I have received in two months. I need things that add texture since my hair is fine but that’s getting a bit much. It has a great smell though so I will want to use it just to smell great.
Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Lip Balm in French Kiss-$14.00 Full Size
I have received a bunch of Be A Bombshell products but this is the first lip balm. It feels really smooth on and gives the barest of tints to my lips. This is a great inclusion for me.
Tarte Deluxe Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess-3g $12.38
I had thought this was full sized but it is actually just a third. It goes to show that with a bit of good marketing you can get something that makes you feel like you got something special. I shy away from bronzer most of the time but this is such a great colour for my skin that I may begin on a more regular basis. It has a fine shimmer that helps with the glow and I am super thrilled.
Vasanti Cosmetics BrightenUp! Exfoliating Cleanser-20g $10.00
I have already received this sample before in my Birchbox December box. However I like this cleanser a lot so I am glad to get more. This has a super fine scrub in it that really polishes your skin without being hard on it. You are supposed to use it a few times a week but I went more and still had no issues.
This months bag has a value of $59.13. I think the price on the lip balm is highly inflated but that is right from the Bombshell site. There were two full sized items this month and the rest are multiple use sizes. I’m not sure how they all go with the theme but then again I never really do. One item is a repeat for me but since I like it it’s okay. I can maybe limit items that I don’t like by completing the mini surveys about each one and it lets them know how I feel about the type of stuff they send out. I’m still not super thrilled with the website changes but am learning to get around on it. If you would like to get in on the bag I’d love it if you’d use my link.
