Ipsy Glambag Plus is the upgraded version of the monthly Ipsy Glam Bag. For $25 a month, it contains 5 full-size products from brands you love, plus a deluxe makeup bag with every third shipment. The promised value of each box is $120 worth of products. It will contain variations, but there are far fewer compared to the regular Ipsy Glam Bag. Be sure to continue to rate and review your bag to help personalize it to your needs. Check out our Ipsy Glam Bag explainer to find out every detail of this subscription!

FYI, after this month, this subscription will no longer inclue the quarterly makeup bag!

The inside of the lid has some advice to share:

Don’t be pretty like them, be pretty like you.

There’s a blue foam topper to secure all that valuable makeup and skin care loot!

There’s a foldout card that comes with the upgraded box, unlike the regular glam bag which only has a card without individual item details.

Each page features a specific product and its description.

It also includes short notes from Ipsy creators.

The pictures are all high-quality.

Aside from product descriptions, the mini-mag also provides a to-do list with the upgraded glam bag.

Everything in my Ipsy Glam Plus bag!

Ipsy Glam Plus Bag. It’s a glittery and shimmery bag that fits this month’s festivities!

The glam bag is full of blue sequins and you can turn them into silver when you swipe at them. You can form patterns if you like.

F.A.R.A.H. Brushes Gold Face Brush Trio – SIMILAR ($34) This brush trio is 100% vegan and 100% synthetic. It’s a worthy addition to my vanity kit as they are essential to keep my makeup flawless.

The large powder brush creates a matte finish and sets the makeup quickly without excess powder and clumping. You can blend the powder just by sweeping the makeup all over the face.

The stippler brush is ideal for applying powder or liquid makeup products using a stippling motion, thus the name. It will create an airbrushed finish.

The large angled contour brush can be used with loose or pressed powder to sculpt and contour cheeks precisely. It can be used with powder or creams and can be applied wet or dry as well.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Never Enough ($32) It’s a long-wearing, intense lip color with a full creamy finish. It’s not just lipstick, it sculpts, hydrates and intensifies as well. It offers medium to full coverage with an easy swipe without tugging and has a time-release moisture complex that helps capture and infuse hydration.

111Skin Vitamin C Brightening Booster ($120.07) It is a concentrated treatment that reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots by the use of increased vitamin C. The formula brightens and evens the skin tone, just mix 1 to 2 drops of moisturizer or apply directly after cleansing. It is recommended to apply sunscreen daily while using this product.

Smith & Cult Book Of Eyes Palette in Ice Tears ($44) I got an eyeshadow palette and it has intense pigment in the extremely-refined powder to cream formulas.

It doesn’t crease and it’s long-wearing without drying or fading. Free of parabens too.

I don’t even know if people really use that kind of brush but it comes in handy if you don’t have anything else, but I’d rather use my fingers!

It has a multidimensional wash that can be applied wet or dry because of the metallic micro-particles, velvety texture, and translucent shimmer.

Lancome Le Monochromatique in Haute Couture ($25) This is a lightweight, oil-free blush that has buildable pigment and a cream to powder formula that can be applied all over the face or eyes, cheeks, and lips.

It is free of fragrance and has a metallic finish. It also contains vitamin E so it nourishes the skin and gives the natural flush we’ve always wanted.

The packaging is exquisite and the product delivers as well. This is a fun multi-use product!

The Ipsy Glambag is a huge step up from the normal Ipsy bag. This has full sized items plus it also gives me such luxurious items I didn’t know I needed. One product alone which is a brightening serum from 111skin costs $120. They also gave us variety with the curation. I appreciate that they sent a set of brushes that work as a cohesive kit. The Lancome blush, the beautiful eye palette, and the lipstick can create cool looks together. The eye palette even matches the sequined glam bag. For a subscription of $25, we got about $255 worth of items and that’s a pretty sweet deal. I look forward to more of these surprises in 2019!
