What’s inside

ipsy glam bag January 2018 review

Ipsy sends out quite a few variations of their bag, which I think is great, as it really keeps the surprise factor intact! These are the items I received in my glam bag.

This month’s theme was all about having your game face on – hence the glam bag got inspiration via an empowering activewear line by Candice Huffine of DAY/WON.

So happy to see so many full-sized products this month! 🙂

Ciate London Fierce Flicks Precision Tip Liquid Liner (1.7 ml) – $19.00

This is a very precise, felt tip liquid liner meant to add some fierce flicks like the name suggests! And I wholeheartedly agree!

So easy to use because of the precision tip and so highly pigmented! You really can’t mess up with this one, trust me. I am so in love with how smudge proof and dark it is!

NYX Lingerie (full size) – $7.00

I love NYX as a brand and definitely a fan of their liquid lipsticks. While I have tried out other colors in the NYX Lingerie line, this particular shade Confident – muted plum is a new one for me!

Definitely more on the chocolate brown side – while I love my shades of pinks, I was pleasantly surprised to see how well it worked on my skin tone. Probably my new favorite shade – perfect for a night out.

Bella Pierre Stay Put Brow Gel (0.08 oz) (full size) – $25.00

Oh boy! Another full-size product. 🙂 This long-wearing brow gel is buildable and allows you to achieve a natural or bold look. While this shade is a bit on the darker side for my brows, I could probably make it work if I apply with a very light hand, since it is actually heavily pigmented! It has a consistency of a gel and adheres to the hair very easily.

I personally loved the convenient packaging, as the brow brush, comes fitted at the top, an easy and quick fix for on-the-go. 🙂

Purlisse Mud Mask + Exfoliant (15 ml) – $10.35

A 10-minute facial treatment designed with Blue Lotus Seeds, White Clay, Bamboo, Ginger, White Tea and Mushroom Extract. This multi-tasker instantly brightens, detoxifies, tightens and soothes skin while providing gentle exfoliation. I am all about masks especially during the colder months since my skin gets so parched, so can’t wait to try this out!

Preventive Measures 101 After Hours Lip Balm 4g (full size) – $8.00

I found the After Hour’s lip balm to be very hydrating, however, I did have to re-apply quite a few times. Nonetheless, I did enjoy the passion fruit flavor, and you can never have enough lip balms around the house. Certainly something useful! 🙂


Overall, what a fabulous month by ipsy! The value this month comes around $70.00 and I am more than happy with the 4 out of 5 full-sized products! Love months like these when everything just turns out to be a big hit. 🙂
