The Ipsy Glam Bag theme for February 2024 was It’s A Self-Love Affair! I received a bag and five beauty products including an eyeshadow palette, setting spray, and more. Read on to see all of my beauty items!

Note: Ipsy sends many variations, so the bag I’m reviewing may not match everyone else’s. Also, my bag is sent for review, while subscribers get to choose an item for their bag and have their products curated to their beauty quiz!

Ipsy Glam Bag Aww, what a cute bag! This pink bag has a spring green lining inside and a heart zipper pull with a little black bow. Perfect for February!

Feel Beauty Probiotic Moisturizer ($14.40) is supposed to reduce wrinkle depth with probiotics. It’s fragrance-free, can be used morning and night, and left my skin soft but not greasy. Hyaluronic acid helps skin retain moisture and there’s apple and tea extracts along with glycerin in the ingredients.

Dr. Brandt Skincare Eye Cream I’m not sure that Dr. Brandt even carries this eye cream, so I don’t think you can purchase more if you liked it. The ingredients on the bottle don’t match those listed on the Ipsy website either, and I’m having a hard time reading the bottle. I think it has glycerin, rice bran oil, aloe, hyaluronic acid, and tea extract and I’m not seeing fragrance listed, but there are some essential oils. Ipsy says it’s supposed to do all kinds of things like reduce dark circles, puffiness, and crow’s feet while fighting dryness but they also say it has shea butter and ceramides and again, not seeing those listed on the container. The cream dries quickly and doesn’t smell like much of anything, maybe a hint of those plant oils.

MoBeauty Set It Up Setting Spray ($8) Setting sprays are a product that I have no use for, so this one will be shared with someone who doesn’t mind the strong, perfumed scent – it smells like something you would spray on your wrists. It has hyaluronic acid, which is supposed to help draw moisture to the skin, and glycerin, which is also moisturizing. It can be used before or after makeup and the instructions say it can also be used alone, I’m guessing for the moisturizing properties. Spray in an X pattern and close your eyes and hold your breath!

Realher Mini Lipstick in Celebrate Diversity ($6.17) I couldn’t find this lipstick on the Realher website so I gave it a value based on similar lipsticks. It’s described as a matte finish lipstick in a mauve shade but I found the finish to be typical of moisturizing lipsticks, and the shade was more of a rosy pink, and it’s just shy of being too bright. The lipstick had a chemical note. Be careful, this one tends to slip beyond the lip line so frequent checks and touchups may be necessary.

Pear Nova Eyeshadow Palette ($27.50) This palette is not for me, it didn’t go well with my coloring or desired look. Yellows, browns, and reds don’t look good on me at all. I did try it out, and found that the glittery shades are too chunky and too dark and like most palettes, I had fallout. I ended up passing a lighter shade from another palette over top to tone it down. If you are into big, bold colors then this palette may be perfect for you!

Swatched on top is the Realher lipstick, followed by the Pear Nova eyeshadows.

The best part of my February Ipsy Glam Bag was the bag itself! I liked the pink textured bag and the heart zipper pull. As for the products, I am always happy to get a new eye cream, like the one I received from Dr. Brandt. The Feel moisturizer was also nice, and I appreciate that it was fragrance-free. The MoBeauty setting spray smelled like actual perfume, so I can’t bring myself to spray it on my sensitive face. The Pear Nova eyeshadow palette was pretty, even though the colors didn’t work for me. The Realher lipstick color was lovely, I just need to check it often to see if it’s shifted. The value for my items, not including the Dr. Brandt eye product, was around $56 but I noticed that none of these brands (except for Dr. Brandt) are sold at Sephora or Ulta, and they feel inflated, value wise, for what they are.
