IPSY GLAM BAG ⋆ February 2018 ⋆ REVIEW & SWATCHES

Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service that includes 4 to 5 beauty items (varies from makeup, skincare, fragrance, haircare, and tools based on your personal preference survey) for $10 a month including shipping and tax. All the items come in an exclusively designed cosmetic bag. There are also detailed tutorials and exclusive offers for each product on Ipsy site. Ipsy is available in both U.S. and Canada (additional $5 fee applies).

Item #1

LUNA BY LUNA COSMETICS
Baked Highlighter in Electra – FULL SIZE! VALUE $ 23.00!

      This baked highlighter is my favorite item from my February 2018 Ipsy Glam Bag! The shade Electra is a pale peach shimmer with a medium, buildable color payoff. The color is in the natural/skin tones range which makes this highlighter extremely wearable for any occasion. The texture is smooth and it blends beautifully on my skin. The metallic sheen on my cheekbone looked wet, and that is how smooth the finish is. I swear I did not compliment this product because the brand shares the same name as me, the luminosity is simply wonderful.

Item #2

OFRA COSMETICS
Liquid Lipstick in Ipsy Unzipped – SAMPLE SIZE (5 g)! VALUE $16.67!

     This is such a generous sample size because of the full-size lipstick weights at 6g, so it is almost full-sized! The shade Ipsy Unzipped is a semi-matte medium berry with an opaque color payoff. I am not sure if this shade is the same as the shade Unzipped from the permanent color range of OFRA Liquid Lipstick, but they seem like the same color. I am a big fan of the formula of OFRA Liquid Lipstick; it is so rich and creamy. The lipstick is long-lasting and not drying at all. I really enjoy the shade because it is one of those pinky/berry tones that actually looks flattering on my skin tone. A lot of pink/berry lipsticks emphasize the dullness of my skin.

Item #3

IT COSMETICS
Bye Bye Under Eye™ Concealer in Light – SAMPLE SIZE (3.25 ml)! VALUE $9.75!

    I have been using the Bye Bye Under Eye™ Concealer in Medium for years, and I am so glad that I can try the shade Light. The formula is creamy and moisturizing with a full-coverage finish.A little goes a long way, so use it sparingly! A deluxe-sample size can last for a very long time! The concealing effect is insane, and it covers all the imperfections especially the dark circles. The medium shade is more of a natural shade that evens out the darkness, and the light shade brightens up the undereye area.

Item #4

F.A.R.A.H BRUSHES
Angled Contour Brush 30F – FULL SIZE! VALUE $ 12.00!

     The purple handle and bristle hair are so pretty! Right on the 2018 ultra-violet trend. The bristle is synthetic and the shape is perfect for precise contouring. The brush felt very soft when applying products to my face. You can use both dry or wet products with this brush.

Item #5

JERSEY SHORE COSMETICS
Apple Harvest Hydrating Balm –  FULL SIZE! VALUE $ 15.00!

     The lip balm has a pleasant apple scent and the formula is moisturizing but not too greasy. There are many other scents available from the brand. It is always nice to have a lip balm on hand.

BONUS ITEM

Preventive Measures 101
After Hours Lip Balm – FULL SIZE! VALUE $ 8.00!

     I redeemed some of my Ipsy points (earned with reviewing the received items) for this extra product. If I knew that I was going to receive the JERSEY SHORE COSMETICS Apple Harvest Hydrating Balm, I probably would not spend my points on it. I did not open this because I have plenty of opened lip balm that I need to finish. Just going to save this for future.

 


Overall, all six items (including the bonus item) add up to a total value of $84.42! This is so far the most expensive (in terms of the product prices) Glam Bag I have ever received. I think Ipsy is getting better at customizing products according to the beauty profile, and I love the product selection and the shades. February was a huge success!
