Ipsy Glambag Plus

 Five full size items from Ipsy


Total Value: About $368.20

Ipsy Glambag Plus really never fails to amaze subscribers with wonderful products, which are not just high in value but also work well! This month, that standout item is the Hydra Gel. This item alone is $200 in retail value, which is 4x the cost of the box. It’s highly moisturizing, with a cooling sensation and an anti-aging effect. The rest of the items are also high-quality and useful.

Typically includes a palette every month – whether it’s eyeshadow, concealer, contouring, or something else! This is the box for makeup lovers that want to do a full face!

Box Variation # 1 

Total Value: About $137

This month’s BOXYCHARM is mostly dominated by makeup products! The palette is fantastic, the theme is well-thought-out and most importantly, the eyeshadow formula is smooth, creamy, and long-lasting. The brow kit and the blusher are of high-quality as well. The only skincare product this month is the water cream, and they even included a brush cleaner, which is pretty useful.

Comes in a beautifully wrapped box which usually includes five deluxe-sized beauty products and wellness samples.


Total Value: About $76

This month’s GLOSSYBOX really gives a bang for your buck! The nail treatment takes the spotlight this month. As time passes, our nails get brittle and this is a great way to take care of them. The lip tint is another awesome inclusion. It leaves a sheer color that looks natural on the lips. The rest of the items are pretty useful!

Typically skin & hair focused, with less makeup. A good mix of a couple full-sized products & sample sizes of pricier products.


Total Value: About $100

This BeautyFIX curation contains a nice mix of skincare and hair care products. There’s also a make-up product included, which is the lash paint mascara. There are even a pre-biotic 3-in-1 multi-mist and a deep cleansing bar soap, making it really well-rounded.

The winner for this month is definitely the Ipsy Glambag Plus! One product inclusion has a retail price of around $200, which is amazing for a $25 box! It is followed by the make-up filled Boxycharm and the jampacked Beautyfix boxes.  We’re also happy about the Glossybox but we really can’t tell if the palette is great because it arrived to us in a not so good condition. Overall, the boxes this month are amazing, and we’re excited about the future curations!
