Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

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!

ICYMI, starting last month, this subscription no longer includes the quarterly makeup bag!

They didn’t use squiggles, wrapping papers or any of the sort this time.

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.

Since March is Women’s Month, they featured female-founded beauty brands in this box!

Each page features a specific product and its description.

The mini-mag also provides a to-do list with the upgraded glam bag.

The pictures are all high-quality. This booklet is very useful to get an overview of the items!

Everything in my Ipsy Glambag Plus!

Huda Beauty Obsessions Palette in Smokey ($27) This palette includes 9 shades of neutral, mostly warm-toned eyeshadows with a mix of matte and shimmer finishes.

The flip side of the box reveals a list of notable information about the product.

The large mirror, conveniently-sized palette, and versatile shadow collection allow me to create both classic and playful looks that are easy to apply on-the-go. The shades were semi-opaque to opaque, easy to blend, and long wearing overall.

My favorite shades are the first one in deep black, with neutral undertones and a matte finish and the fourth one in smoky, light pewter with a sparkling, metallic finish. The second shade in the palette in soft, light brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish also had good coverage but was quite powdery that it left a lot of excess product that kicked up in the pan, but it blended well and stayed on nicely for eight hours.

Maëlle Beauty Above & Beyond Mascara in Black ($20) This cruelty-free mascara has a multi-tasking formula that takes the lashes to another level. It’s also paraben-free, fragrance-free, gluten-free, and vegan.

Its unique formula and the innovative curved brush makes it easy to apply and gives a gorgeous false-lash effect- guaranteed to impress day or night!

F.A.R.A.H Brushes 5-Piece Eye Perfection Set ($50) The set contains 5 metallic brushes made with vegan bristles.

This set is everything you need to create a look that even pros would envy. The ultra-soft bristles help me blend my makeup as good as a professional. They’re sleek, compact and perfect for travel. The metallic silver finish of the brushes makes them almost too pretty to use!

It includes a tapered blending brush, large shading brush, mini tapered blending brush, short shading brush, and fly wings brush.

Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion Shy Beam Liquid Highlighter ($26) I totally adore this highlighter for giving a sculpted contour or strobe look without any shimmer. It’s a great option for when I want to slim down my face, but need to keep shimmer to a minimum. It’s really the highlighter with a low profile.

This soft-matte, nude pink highlighter puts the natural-looking spotlight on my face. It has a liquid formula that strobes and highlights with its signature dandy daydream scent. I never thought that I would be into a matte highlighter, but this one really does the trick!

Purlisse Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer ($45) Infused with white tea, vitamin E, and French marine plants, this moisturizer glides on like a gel and hydrates like a cream. This product hydrates my skin without making my face oily during the day. It also helps with expression lines too. It’s magic in a bottle for me!

Almost all items in Ipsy Glam Bag Plus are from popular and great brands, just like Benefit and Huda Beauty. So far, they’ve been giving me the cosmetics and beauty products that I love, so I am so contented. I am happy with all of the items, but my best-loved product this month is the Dandelion Shy Beam Liquid Highlighter because it looks natural and it makes it look like I have healthy, glowing skin. The applicator is a brush similar to that of a nail polish so I just have to simply dab it and blend it into my skin with my fingertips! It even looks like they are giving BOXYCHARM a run for their money with the value in the box – $168 – even though I feel the brush set is on the overpriced end.
