March Ipsy Review

This was my first ever time receiving an Ipsy Glam Bag. I have heard SO much about Ipsy, but waited a while to give it a try. I did a lot of research into subscription boxes, and Ipsy was one of the ones I was most interested in. I really wanted one where I could receive makeup, as I am no really into hair care products, masks, or skincare items. I wear makeup, I like using it, but I never know what other brands to try.. This seemed like a great way to try new things without spending tons of money doing it!
I really liked my Glam Bag! I thought it was cute and I actually didn't have a real makeup bag, so this was perfect! I like little bags and stuff for organizing, especially when I travel, so getting a cute little bag like this every month is great! It seems very well made too!

Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Miracle Multiplying Volume Mist:

This did nothing for my hair. I do not blow dry my hair, and this didn't really do anything on air dried hair. It does have a somewhat nice scent. Not too strong or overpowering. There just wasn't any noticeable volume. This was probably my least favorite item in my glam bag. 
MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer Hydrating Primer:
Another just okay product. I don't wear foundation, but this didn't work at setting my eyeshadow. I liked that it was not greasy and it was moisturizing, but it did not hold my makeup at all. I'll finish the tube but I would not purchase this myself. 

Pixi by Petra Beauty Blush Duo in Rose Gold:

While I like the idea of this product, it just didn't work for me. I have fair skin and this was too light for me and didn't show up at all. Even the highlighter just blended in with my skin and didn't show up! The color of the blush was pretty and I wish it would have worked for me!

Beau G√Ęchis® Paris Eyeshadow Brush:

Well, it's an eyeshadow brush. It does what it's supposed to. Can't say it's anything spectacular. Just your average eyeshadow brush!
 Starlooks Luxe Longwear Eye Pencil in Jet - This was my first time trying a Starlooks eye pencil. I typically use a black eyeliner, but this was extremely bold and I didn't really like the look of it. It was also really hard to remove! Once you put it on it's on! I did like that it glides on very easily, just don't mess up!

While I didn't love any of the products in my first glambag, I will definitly give Ipsy another try! I have read that reviewing items on their site will give them more of an idea into what you like.

I really like that you receive quality products, some of which are full sized items! I would definitely recommend it! The bag itself is definitely worth it! At $10 a month, it's a great deal!

Have you ever tried Ipsy? What did you think?


  1. That seems like a cool mix of products, and the bag is super cute! I've been staying away from subscription boxes myself though because I would always end up disappointed by them (like, 9 times out of 10, the products were not ones I would have chosen or even used on my own).

    1. I totally get it! I waited a long time and did a lot of looking around to finally settle on a couple to try. I think I will end up sticking with Ipsy for a while.I really wanted something inexpensive and I just can't see spending over $10 on a subscription box! Ipsy has a pretty thorough quiz to try to understand what you like, so it might be one you should try!
