ipsy May Glam Bag

With infinite beauty product combinations in the marketplace, choosing the best items for your needs can be a challenge! That was why Michelle created ipsy. Michelle and her team of stylists have selected products they love, for you to try.

Each month, subscribers will receive a beautiful Glam Bag with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Members can watch and play along with the stylists with the same products that they are using. All for only $10 a month.

I took the plunge and signed up for the ipsy monthly subscription.  I signed up about four weeks ago and was put on a waiting list.  To my surprise I received an email this week saying I was getting a package.  I guess that waiting list wasn’t that long this time.

This is what my package looked like when I opened my mailbox.  It came in a pretty pink bubble wrap package.


When I opened the package I loved the cute chevron patterned makeup bag I saw.  It came with two postcards.  The makeup bag was packed and I couldn’t wait to get it open.


            The Postcards

  • One matched the chevron makeup bag and had the title Spring Fling, when I flipped the card over it had 9 different flowers telling the brands that could have been included in your bag.
  • The other card was from NUME with an offer for $110 off Hair Styling Tools and Hair Extensions+Free Thermal Pouch with Purchase.  I checked out the website and the cheapest you can get out is with buying a flat iron.  With the discount the flat iron will cost you $49.



Zoya Nail Polish-Piaf 0.5 fl.oz.($8)-I am not a colored nail polish kind of person.  I used to be, but have come to love my toes French manicured.  This color of nail polish is described as cool, metallic, and yellow.  After I read the color it did remind me of rice pilaf. (I know the spelling is different, but it did.)  I may try to use this polish as my cover over my French manicure tips.  I was hoping to get one of the other 5 colors ipsy showed as a possibility.  If I had gotten the blush or nude it would have been perfect with my French manicures.


Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss-Fig .14 fl.oz.($7.50)- I like this color and cannot wait to find out how it will look on me.  This is a color I would normally gravitate toward when picking for myself so I am sure I will love it. I couldn’t find the same size.  The size I found was .28 oz. for $15 so I just divided by half.


Pacifica Coconut Crushed Pearl Bronzing Body Butter-Sun-kissed Glow 2 fl.oz.($7)-I have never tried anything like this, but am curious.  It did smell great so I may give it a go and hope I like what it does.


Mirabella Perfecting Powder .045 oz.($14)-I am interested in trying this.  It is supposed to make your pores look smaller and give an even balanced looked.  If this does work, I may have to bite the bullet and buy a full size.  I couldn’t find the same size online, but did find the size .14 oz. for $30.  I did find this size on eBay for $14, so I took that price.


Yaby Concealer Refill-Buff(sample)-I was thinking this was a sample, but after looking at the website I am wondering if this is a full size.  The concealer refills come in a small metal tin as this, and are 3.5 grams for $4.85.  This foundation can be used as is, or thinned out for a more fluid look.  It looks like this color may work for me, so I will give it a go.


Make-up bag($5)-I love the look of this bag, while there is not a place to find this bag online.  I would value it at $5 because of the cuteness and quality.


All in all the total of this ipsy bag of gifts comes to $46.35.  With this bag of makeup only costing $10, I would say it is totally worth it.  Since this was my first month, I really had no idea what to expect, but love what I got and cannot wait for next month.  If you are interested in subscribing to ipsy, click here.
