My First Ipsy Glam Bag

Feb 24, 2014
Don't forget about my giveaway - where everyone wins!

Yay! I'm finally an Ipsy Glam Bag subscriber! After seeing and hearing other reviews of Ipsy I knew I had to get on the bandwagon. What really sold me was that not only do you get awesome products, but every month you get a travel sized makeup bag!

February was probably not the best month to get my first glam bag. This month's theme was "The Look of Love," and I am not a fu-fu, pink kind of girl.


Plump Pout Mini in Fuschia Freesia
Pros: Love the packaging! I like lip glosses vs. lipsticks.

Cons: Hate the color. It's the color of something that would come in my five-year-old niece's "play makeup" kit.

Retail Cost of Full Size: $16

Value of Mini: $4 (?)

Zoya Nail Polish in Dot
Pros: This is my first time using the Zoya. A lot of people had recommended it to me.

Cons: Pink is probably my least favorite color.

Retail Cost: $9

Eyetini Cordial Cream Shadow is Violette
Pros: I have never used cream eye shadow before and was glad to have the opportunity to try it out.  It lasted all day!

Cons: Although purple is my favorite color, I think it makes my eye bags stand out. I will use this every once in a while. I would like this in a more subtle or neutral color.

Retail Cost: $16.00

Fresh Start Mask with Ice Age Mud by Skyn ICELAND
Pros: After going through everything, this was the product I was most excited about! This mask is used for 10 minutes once a week which is definitely something I can fit into my beauty routine. Skyn ICELAND is a "cruelty free" company - they do not test on animals!

Cons: It stays a little tingly even after you wash it off. The instructions suggest using a toner after. I would suggest a natural, green tea toner.

Retail Cost: $39 for 6 masks

Value in Bag: $6.50

Eyelashes + Eyelash Glue from J.Cat Beauty
Pros: I can save them a big night out or a photo shoot.

Cons: Neither of these occur in life, like EVER. I have no idea why these were sent to me. I've worn fake eyelashes once in my life, and that was for a dance recital.

Retail Cost: $3.99

This bag was awesome value-wise. The contents included retail for around $39.49, and I spent $10.  However, overall, I was disappointed - mostly because I would never wear these colors and I saw some girls got blushes and beauty blenders in their bags and I would have much rather had those. Here's hoping March's bag is a bit better!

  2. I got the hooker lip gloss (or it looked on me at least) and fake eyelashes too! Some people got blenders?? Dang it! I was jealous of the blush and now I have something else to be jealous about. Haha!

    How are you feeling since you accident?? Better I hope!

    1. It kind of was like a hooker bag with that lip gloss and lashes! I'm totally jealous of the other bag that others got!

      I feel fine. Still waiting for my car to be fixed. Thank you so much for asking!

  4. Glad you finally got a bag! Sucks that you weren't all that impressed! I was wondering why I got fake lashes as well...I never wear them. Especially some that are SO big and flashy! I mixed that Pop gloss with a little bit of clear on the back of my hand and it toned it down a lot and was super cute!
