Some of the links below are referral links, this means I get points from ipsy if you subscribe using my link. Find out more info here.

What is ipsy Glam Bag?: ipsy is a monthly subscription that sends 4-5 beauty/makeup products plus a different makeup bag each month. They also have a referral program where you earn points. Be sure to use your points within a year of earning them, though, because they do expire. 

How Much is ipsy Glam Bag?: ipsy Glam Bag is only $10 per month shipped to the United States or $10 plus shipping ($4.95) to Canada. 

There is now a Glam Bag Plus for $25/month. I get that bag (box) in addition my regular one now. My second, regular ipsy is with the profile slightly different to get a variety of products.

Lots of pink!


Love the bag, still too small for my liking. Now that I've started planning, I might keep one of these bags eventually for pens.


IBY Beauty Radiant Glow Highlighter (Prosecco) ($8.24) - The website described this as a subtle rose gold highlighter. This is a stunning highlight that I've worn time and time again. I love IBY products and this is no exception. The formula is amazing and the shade is light enough for me to wear but not so golden that it looks like a stripe on my cheekbones.

Space Case Cosmetics Blush (It's Not Me, It's My Sign) ($9.00) - This is described as a warm medium pink blush on the website. I wasn't sure about this because it does appear to lean a bit purple in the pan, but not so much in swatching. I did keep this as it's a gorgeous light pink that looks nice on me, a rarity for pinks.

MAC Cosmetics Little Lipglass (Love Child) ($12.00) - This is a shimmery copper plum. I don't do purple lips, pass. 


KVossNYC Lip Balm (Strawberry Peppermint) ($14.00) - I like the scent and the formula of this, but I don't like the shade. It is a fair bit too dark for me and not something I'd typically gravitate towards.

Tarte Shape Tape (Points Freebie) - I did get this with points, which was amazing. I love that they include good rewards for points (looking at you, Sephora).

Naked Cosmetics Loose Pigment (Rain Forest) ($14.99) - The base in this is a cool-toned forest green but the shimmer in this is a stunning olive shimmer. I love how it looks blended out or packed on, instant hit.


Swatches L-R: IBY Beauty, Space Case, KVossNYC, and Naked Cosmetics.


This bag was valued at $58.23. I really liked the majority of the products and am glad that I took the bag.

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
