It’s that time of the month… no not my period. My Ipsy package has FINALLY come in. I subscribed to Ipsy over the summer and I am so thankful. I had Birchbox before but honestly I prefer Ipsy more. I go into detail as to why in this Ipsy vs Birchbox post so if you are curious to see what’s the hype check that out.
For those who don’t know, Ipsy is a glam bag subscription service. For $10 a month you get a diverse range of beauty, skincare, and tools that go with your preference. I like a little more skin care in my bags because I love trying out new beauty and makeup products. So if you want to try Ipsy and learn more please visit ipsy.com ALSO this is not sponsored. I do love Ipsy and would love to work with them on a collaboration but my opinions on these products are authentic and no one is paying me for it.
GREAT, now we got past all of that. Let’s see what I got…
This month’s theme is surrounded around adding color into your life and creation. I think that since festival season is approaching they wanted to offer products that add a little more sparkle. I’m not a very sparkly person personally but I’m always curious to see what Ipsy has in store for me. You can even color in the bag too which I think is super cute. Shoutout to Ipsy for having girls with different hair colors, textures, and ethnicities on their bag. I am loving the inclusive touch.
The first product I opened was the Steve Laurant oil in the shade orchid. This little baby is retailed at $18 but I got a full sized bottle for free. I never have tried a lip oil and honestly it doesn’t sound too appealing because who wants greasy lips? But it feels more like a gloss on the lips and it is super hydrating. I would find myself wearing this on days where I want a little gloss but nothing too crazy so this is a win.
The next item is a single eyeshadow pigment by Furless in the shade Sinister . This is not a color I would typically go for. It’s a darker bronze. I might give this item away to someone who will actually use a darker bronze shadow because that isn’t really my style. Overall, it is super pigmented and isn’t chunky as I know some single shadow pigments can be. This isn’t my fave.
The item is a black eyeliner from Tarte . It is the mini version of it and it goes on super smooth. I go for a liquid eyeliner for a good wing but I think I am going to try this one out to see how it performs because it went on SO smoothly. I would use this 🙂
What I love about Ipsy is that they sometimes include brushes. So this month they gave this rainbow fan brush from Moda. I couldn’t find the exact link but below is a picture. You can never have too many brushes and it’s super soft to the touch so I would use this.
The last item in the Ipsy bag was the Nip+Fab Glycolic Scrub Fix retailing at $10. You can find this in the drug store. For scrubs, I use them about once a week. I love the Pixi Beauty Peel and Polish Scrub so much but this is becoming a close second. It has a refreshing scent to it and does a really good job at hydrating and removing any additional oil or skin off your face. I used this in the shower and it works.
Out of the 5 items in the bag, I enjoyed 4 of them and that’s because I don’t usually wear a bronzy eye pigment. If you are into that then you may really want to test this out. I love that I received products from brands I didn’t know but also one or two that I am familiar with. This is pretty common with my Ipsy glam bags. I usually like most of the items and some of the others are not my favorite but they may work for someone else.
March’s Glam Bag was ⭐⭐⭐⭐
