Review: January Ipsy Glam Bag

January’s Glam Bag is all about the eyes. And remember last month when I said December’s bag was really cute?  Well, this month’s bag is even cuter! This Glam Bag is a great value – better than the last several months. Yesterday, I tried three of the products – the eyeshadow trio, eyeliner, and mascara. Stay tuned for a post with my review of the products and pictures. For now, here is a snapshot of my January Ipsy Glam Bag.

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. Often, a discount is available 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. Here’s my review of the products I received in my December Ispy Glam Bag.

My thoughts:  I usually wear black or dark blue eyeliner – and avoid brown eyeliners. I do this only because browns seem to make me look tired. However, this is a nice bronze shade so I plan to give it a try.
