All of my items were inside the bag! The bag has a marble look to it and the zipper is pink. The bag is 7.5″ x 5″.
The zipper pull is also pink and says Ipsy!
Here’s the back of the bag. The material seems like it would be easy to clean, just wipe with a cloth.
The inside is lined with pink polyester material.
Some of my items were wrapped in bubble wrap to keep them safe.
I received a card telling me it’s out with the old, in with the new.
The inside listed my five products and gave a tip for each one. It mentioned whether my items were full sized or sample sized and listed the retail value for the full sized products. I received 1 full sized item and 4 deluxe samples. I didn’t make a sample choice for my bag, although every subscriber now has the opportunity to do that!
There was info on a giveaway on the back of the card.
Everything in my box!
Hempz Original Herbal Body Moisturizer ($1.84) My first item was a light body lotion. This is good for warmer days where I live but if you live somewhere that is pretty cold then you might want to stash this away until spring time. It was fast absorbing and non-sticky and it has a fruity scent, like if fruit salad became a scent, this would be it! The scent lasted a long time though, and you don’t really need to wear perfume when you use this.
Ciate London Glow-To Illuminating Blush in Pinch Me ($8.13) January was a makeup heavy bag for me – I received 4 makeup items!
Pinch Me is described as coral and it has lots of shimmer.
At first I thought this was a highlighter – it just didn’t really show up on my skin. I discovered that I need to really swirl my blush brush around more than I normally would to get enough to make it show up on my face, but when I did I was really happy with the flush of color. Swatched below.
PUR 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup in Light ($15.80) I recently switched to powder makeup so I was excited to try this product! It claims that it has 4 benefits in 1 compact – foundation, concealer, finishing powder, and SPF.
Titatnium dioxiade provides the SPF, although I use an SPF moisturizer too so this is like extra protection.
I was surprised at how well this matched my complexion! I applied it with a densely packed brush and then went over it with a fluffy brush and it covered my ruddy face and stayed on all day. Swatched below.
The shade Incomparable is described as “matte warm toffee. The perfect transition shade, or to use all over the lid for a day-to-day look.” I used it all over my lid from lashes to brow and then used a deeper color in the crease. I will use this when doing a warm look since it is slightly tan but I thought it worked well.
Araceli Ojos Perfectos Liquid Eyeliner in Coffee/Café ($16) I am not the best at using liquid liners but my daughter loves them so I pass them on to her after trying them out a couple of times.
I appreciate that Ipsy sent a dark brown liner instead of black, I was starting to wonder if liquid liners came in any other colors!
It has a spongy tip. No matter how many times I try a product like this, I can only manage to do a good cat eye on my right eye and the left one always ends up looking wonky. The liner dried really quickly, but I was able to wipe off my mistake with a wet tissue. After swatching I was alarmed at how easily this product wiped off of my arm, but it didn’t smear around my eyes after wearing it all day. Overall I thought it worked well!
Here are the products swatched from top: liner, eyeshadow, powder foundation, and blush. That is one swipe for each product, and the blush was buildable.
Overall I was really happy with my Ipsy Glam Bag! I generally like the makeup that Ipsy sends and this was a makeup heavy month for me. I really adored all of the colors too, that doesn’t happen very often so I give extra points to Ipsy this month for getting it right! The bag was adorable and seems easy to keep clean. The value for my January shipment was around $44.88!
