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!
