Ipsy Glambag January 2014

Hey everyone! Hope everyone is having a great week. Today I am going to share with you what I got in my January Ipsy Glambag. For those of you who don’t know, Ipsy is a beauty sample subscription box where you pay $10 a month (you can cancel anytime) and they send you a grab bag full of goodies based on your profile every month. Most of the time they send full size products! The value of what is in the box is always over $10, and it’s a great way to try out new products!

This month’s theme is “19 Reasons”, and it included 4 full size products and one sample product. Everything came in this blue bag with different makeup items printed on it.

Benefit The Porefessional Face Primer 3ml size Value $4
Yaby Liquid Foundation in Buff 8ml FULL SIZE Value $14
Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm 10g FULL SIZE Value $12
I was happy to see a sample of the Benefit Porefessional in my bag. This is my go-to makeup primer. I love to use it before I apply liquid foundation; it fills in pores and smoothes out your skin. Now, I am disappointed that Ipsy would send out a foundation product in their bags. Obviously, every person is a different skintone, and this color won’t match everyone. Including me. FAIL Ipsy. This lip balm is nice, it has a light mojito scent to it and is a really good night time moisturizer for your lips.

Balanced Guru Balm Me Up Organic Sweet Cocoa & Tangy Body Balm 30ml FULL SIZE Value $12
Absolute! Makeup Cleansing Tissues (10 tissues) FULL SIZE Value $2.49
Ok, I want to give honest reviews on my blog…so I’m gonna be honest here. This balm crap REEKS. It smells so freaking bad, like cheap citrus scented hotel soap or something. I don’t care how moisturizing it is for your skin, I don’t want to smell like it. The last product I got was some makeup wipes. I haven’t tried this brand before, but I will save these for travel because they are in a small package.

So, as you can tell, I am not too thrilled with this month’s bag. 2 of the items I won’t use. I was looking at the other items that were sent out and they sent out some great shadow sticks and hair products that I would have liked to get instead. I guess I got unlucky with this bag. Oh well, maybe I will have better luck next month! I paid $10 for this bag, and I received $44.49 worth of products.

What did you get in your Ipsy bag?

Thanks for reading, have a great day!

  1. December 2013 was my first Ipsy bag and I am loving this subscription service so far! I also thought it was pretty bold of Ipsy to give out foundations in the glam bag. Too bad it didn’t work out for you.

    1. I love Ipsy too, it’s so fun getting the bags each month! The foundation sample was a little dark for me, but I am saving it for the summertime, hopefully it will work out then. Thanks for checking out my blog! 🙂
