Ipsy May Glam Bag

- Beauty

Ipsy Glam Bag 2

If you are a beauty junkie like me, I have to say I LOVE this. I did a lot of reading up on GlossyboxBirch Box and Ipsy, and Ipsy seemed to fit my needs best. I like getting samples, but if I’m paying $10 a month for something, I also thought it would be nice to get at least one full-sized product. I got two full-sized products, the lipstick and nail polish, and the clear brow gel is a pretty good size for being “mini.” Glossy Box looks nice, but I just don’t know that I can justify $21 a month, even if it does have some really great products. Since to me this is more of a sampling of products, $10 is okay to me. I’ve read a ton of Birch Box reviews and was debating between the two, but so far I’ve heard better things about Ipsy, and it seems there are more full-size products based off the reviews I’ve read and more beauty-related products and that’s what I want. I love skincare products, but I’m already sold on most of those as far as what I really like! But who knows, I might end up signing up for Birch Box or Glossy Box in the future, but I just wanted to start with one!

Let’s review all the products in detail:

Anastasia Mini Clear Brow Gel $10.00

Clear Brow Gel

Clear Brow Gel 2

Mirabella Lipstick in Posy $22.00


Mirabella Lipstick

Zoya Nail Polish in Gei Gei $8.00

Zoya Nail Polish

Gie Gie Zoya

Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia Perfume Roll-On -$12.00

Pacifica Perfume Roll On

Yaby Concealer (Refill) – $5.06


Yaby Buff

Ipsy Glam Bag 3

Total Product Worth: $57.09

All with Ipsy monthly subscription: $10.00

The most important thing for me is the products and Ipsy nailed it this month: nail polish, lipstick and eye brow gel are all things I use and LOVE this month. The perfume roll-on is actually perfect for me. I can’t wear perfume to work due to one of my co-worker’s allergies and so having a small roll-on is great for going out during the week or to wear on the weekends! Also, I use concealer all the time, so I’m sure this Yaby one will be used up pretty quickly! Oh and can we talk about how cute this bag is!? Perfect for traveling with my makeup this summer!

    I’ve always wanted to try a subscription service, but I wasn’t sure if it’d really be worth spending $20+ on it. It sounds like Ipsy might be one that I should try!

    I love roll on perfumes-they’re becoming the only way I buy perfumes now, just because they’re so easy!

    Such cute packaging! Love me some chevron.

    Zoya polish is seriously one of my fav brands- score on the full size! 🙂 And what a pretty pink color.

    Hope you have a good weekend, doll!

    I used to subscribe to Ipsy but never really loved any of the products – it seems like its gotten better though because this seems like a pretty good selection of items! Anastasia brow products are the best and I love the nail polish color!

    I did BirchBox for my entire senior year, and it was pretty nice! I wound up with some products I’m completely in love with (my eyeliner, primarily, but also some nail polish brands I’d never heard of). I also love the inclusion of non-makeup things in the boxes – it’s really fun and nice! (Seriously, I got food in mine a couple of times and it was the best thing ever!) Ipsy looks pretty cool too, though – I’m liking this bagged thing. BirchBoxes can be repurposed in a lot of different ways, yes, but you can’t just pack up a BirchBox and stick it in your purse (although I’m now thinking about whether they can be made into clutches, so I think I know what I’ll be attempting and probably botching when I visit my parents in June…) Anyways, I love that bag!

    I’ve only ever heard of BirchBox and was considering signing up…but this looks pretty great, too! I’ll have to check it out. And one can never have to many cute makeup bags. 🙂
