Not In Jersey: January Ipsy Glam Bag January Ipsy Glam Bag - Not In Jersey

January Ipsy Glam Bag

Monday, January 23, 2017

I have been getting the Ipsy Glam Bag for over 3 years now. I always look forward to see what arrives every month. This month’s theme was “Metropolis.” Here is what I received:


pur-lisse Blue Lotus Seed 5-in-1 mud mask + exfoliant – $52 for 70 ml, I received 15 ml, a value of $10.83:
”As a rule, mud masks can be well, messy, but this one makes you feel more like you’re at the spa than running a tough mudder. It also does about 10 million amazing things for your complexion.”
30% off with code MudIpsy30 until 2/28/17.
My Thoughts: This went on very smoothly and didn’t make me look like I was covered in mud, so I wasn’t too embarrassed that the kids were around! It quickly dried and made my face feel smooth when I removed it.

TEMPTU Base Smooth & Matte Primer – $35 for 1 oz, I received .25 oz, value of $8.75:
“Leaves our skin feeling silky smooth—without any residue—and definitely upping the staying power of our makeup. One swipe also tamps down shine and totally minimizes the look of any prominent pores.”
20% off with code IPSYJAN until 1/31/17.
My Thoughts: I have never tried a non colored primer like this. It went on nicely and felt good on my face.

Pacifica Blushious in Wildrose – $12 for 1.4 g, I received 3 g, a value of $25.71:
”There’s nothing like a swipe of blush to instantly revive your complexion. This one earns big points for the universally-flattering color, a shimmery rose that never leaves us with clown cheeks.”
My Thoughts: I like this because it doesn’t have an unnatural smell that annoys me to wear. I found the color subtle and appropriate.

theBalm Cosmetics Bahama Mama – $20 for 1.4 oz, I received .02 oz, a value of $.29:
”Any natural-looking bronzer is going to have brown undertones, and this one nails it. And since it’s matte, you can also use it to contour, as shadow, or to fill in brows.”
20% off with code IPSY20 until 1/31/17.
My Thoughts: This is a very small sample size! I love the other products I’ve gotten from this brand and I was excited to try this one too. I used a smaller brush than I’d normally use for bronzer because the sample is so small, but I think it worked well!

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Anti-Aging Concealer in Neutral Medium – $24 for 8 ml, I received 1.5 ml, a value of $4.50:
”Full-coverage and completely waterproof formula, but with a little bit of radiance that makes everything better, making it a must-have for early mornings or late nights. And forget the name, it works just as well covering up complexion imperfections as it does hiding dark circles.”
My Thoughts: I put this on a little thick by accident and it didn’t feel very good! As far as concealing under eye imperfections, it worked okay.

Once again, I pay $10 a month for these bags. The value received this month was approximately $50.08, which was a little higher than last month’s value. My favorite product this month was the bronzer. If you’d like to sign up to receive your own Glam Bag each month, click here! I have 5 free bags to give out – though I’m assuming you have to pay for your 2nd month if you get a free month – so let me know if you want one! If you got this month’s bag, what did you think?
