IPSY GLAM BAG – March Glam Bag
The bag is kind of cute, but I get the best bags from Crystal in her Etsy shop – so it is hard to impress me with these bags.
A unique combination of ultra-light Mediterranean Olive Oil and Argan Oil – the ancestral beauty secret of Morocco – plus Shea Butter and our exclusive anti-frizz lock technology makes curls and waves desirably straight. Keratin deeply penetrates to strengthen while Vitamin E nourishes. Your hair will be glossy, ultra-smooth and full of body.
- Maintains smooth hair for up to 3 days
- Frizz lock technology removes frizz
- Strengthens and seals split ends
Full size 6.76 oz – $8.99 and available at Ulta
Sample Weight: 1.69 oz, $2.25 value
I have very flat, thin hair, and therefore am not sure if this product will be something for me. I have recently purchased an expensive Blow Dry cream (Bumble and Bumble), which I am liking – so will try this – as it would be a less expensive alternative if it works.
The next product I saw was a brush – I love getting brushes!
Me Me Me Loose Powder Brush
A soft bristled, full & dense brush designed to lightly dust powder evenly over a large area for a natural and flawless application.
- Use to apply powder
- Super soft bristles
- Delivers flawless application
Full size is bigger for sure and £14 (equivalent of $20.15)and seems to be only available in the United Kingdom, well done Ipsy send products we can’t buy.
Weight: 2 oz – I will assume this is 1/3 the size of the full size – value: $6.72
The next thing that I saw was the Temptu Warm Glow Bronzer
Achieve naturally gorgeous, sun-kissed radiance with TEMPTU‘s multi-tasking Bronzer in Warm Glow. This universally flattering shade delivers sheer to opaque coverage without blotching or streaking. Using only a few drops, apply with fingertips, brush or sponge. For a healthy glow, apply Warm Glow Bronzer where the sun naturally hits the face—cheekbones, forehead, bridge of the nose and chin. For all-over luminosity, apply to neck and décolletage. Can also be applied to the lid of the eyes for added dimension.
- Lightweight and long-lasting formula
- Provides a natural, sun-kissed look to all skin tones
- Delivers sheer to opaque coverage
Weight: .25 fl. oz value $6.88 (my best guess since you can’t actually buy this exact product).
Available at the Temptu website. Use code: IPSY20 for 20% off. Full size
Here again they gave us a product that you really can’t replace. Temptu is an airbrush makeup brand. Apparently one of the best. A standard kit is over $300 and includes the machine, a foundation, blush and highlighter. When I searched for just the bronzer a refill pod came up and was $35. They also sell blushes and highlighters in a squeezy tube similar to what I got – they are 1 oz and retail at $27.50
Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum is a universal treatment serum that infuses skin with its daily dose of hydration for soft, smooth and more youthful-looking skin. Formulated for ALL skin types, this hydrating gel instantly infuses skin with optimal hydration to plump and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This water-based soft gel penetrates immediately into the skin leaving behind an invisible moisture shield that seals in hydration. Its lightweight texture makes it perfect for layering under your favorite AM and PM moisturizers.
- Hyaluronic Acid attracts and locks water into the skin
- Collagen increases firmness and elasticity
- Peptides minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Directions: Use daily in the AM and/or PM. Apply 1-2 pumps of product to a clean, dry face. Wait until completely absorbed before applying moisturizer.
Weight: .25 oz – value $9
Full size is 1 oz and $36
You can get 15% using code IPSY15 at FABs website.
I have wanted to try FAB products for a while, and honestly I may have. They get rave reviews everywhere that I see reviews. This is the best thing in the bag.
The final item in the bag was NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick
Doll up your lips with plush and vibrant color! NYX’s Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick glides on smooth and sets into a striking matte finish. Velvety soft and waterproof, this long-lasting lippie creates a positively polished look with every swipe.
- Waterproof, liquid lipstick infused with avocado oil and Vitamin E
- Super pigmented lipstick goes on opaque and dries to matte finish
- Delivers long-wearing, vivid color in one creamy swipe
ipsters who sample this in their Glam Bag will receive the shade Pink Lust, Kitten Heels, or Soft Spoken. I got Kitten Heels and will never wear it. It also stains quite a lot – that swatch was on my hand for days, even after several washings and even make up remover swipes. Soft spoken is the only color option that MAY have been something I would have worn.
Weight: .13 oz which is full size and retails at $7.00
You can buy it at NYX and get 40% off with code: NYXBEGONE
Full Value of the bag $31.85 – so for $10 it is a good value, but honestly only the brush and serum are of real interest (so I still got a value more than I paid). I will try the smoothing cream and bring it to Crystal if it doesn’t work for me. The bronzer I may try. The lipstick is garbage in my opinion.
