Review: February Glam Bag

FullSizeRender

My February Glam Bag arrived on February 14th – that’s right, on Valentine’s Day. What perfect timing. Here’s my review of the items I received. In my review, I’ve included the product, the benefits (as claimed by the product), the size I received and the value compared to the normal retail size and price. Ipsy often includes a discount if you decide to purchase the retail product – I’ve included that info as well (offers are for a limited time). Keep in mind that Ipsy Glam Bags vary by person. What you receive is based on the profile you established.

100mi-i5pta75j65kpa4fCity Color Creamy Lip Stain (Flirtini)
Benefits: Gives your lips true, bold color that won’t quit! Applies thick and creamy with a glossy shine and sets with a lightweight, matte stain that doesn’t dry out.
Ipsy Size: 2.3 ml (full retail size)
Ipsy Value: $4.99
Ipsy Deal: 20% off any purchase at citycolorcosmetics.com
My thoughts: I’m not a big fan of lip gloss or anything that is not long-lasting. This might work well over a long-lasting to add a little shine. I’ll give it a try but it will probably end up with my 14 year-old.

My thoughts: I can never have too many blushes. This looks like a great color and I can’t wait to try it.

My thoughts: I’ve always been fascinated with oils, especially those for the face or hair. As I’ve aged, my skin has become a little dryer. I’ve always done a great job of moisturizing my skin, which is probably why I don’t have as many wrinkles as others who are in their 40’s like me. This oil smells wonderful as well. I will definitely try this product.

500mi-i5pxfbmzvsl1oniRob Scheppy for tini beauty Powder Eyeshadow (Pearl Fizz)
Benefits: silky crease-resistant formula
Ipsy Size: .06 oz (full size)
Ipsy Value: $12.00
Ipsy Deal: 40% off + $5 shipping + FREE Nail Polish automatically added to order at tinibeauty.com. 40% applies to purchases of $20 or more.
My thoughts: The color of this eyeshadow will make for a great highlighter for the brow bone or lid. In January’s Glam Bag, I received another eyeshadow that I thought would be a good highlighter. Unfortunately, that brand of eyeshadow does not work well for me. It goes on very light and hardly shows up. I have high hopes for this one.

My thoughts: Treatment for the eye area is very important to me. Fine lines will develop in this area over time but many people develop fine lines earlier necessary because they forget about this area. The eye area needs a little extra care because the skin is delicate. I can’t wait to try this product to see if it is all that it states.

Ipsy Glam Bag

Total Ipsy Value: $73.49

This is what I love about Ipsy. Sometimes it doesn’t seem like you are getting a lot (some Glam Bags have more items than others) but it’s the size and value of the products you get that matters. I would much rather have nice sizes (full sizes are even better!) that allow me to really test the product.

Until next time, stay beautiful! ~ Devon
