January 2019 Ipsy Glam Bag Plus

This month's Ipsy Glam Bag Plus is a little more skincare heavy than I like, but that seems to be a common theme among makeup companies in January.  The items I received were:
  • Wander Beauty Unlashed Volume & Curl Mascara (a $24 value)
  • Vasanti Matte Crush Lipstick Pencil in Berry First Kiss (a $23 value)
  • Hey Honey Good Morning Honey Silk Facial Serum (a $45 value)
  • Eyeko Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner (a $22 value)
  • Violet Voss Mini HG Eye Shadow Palette (a $18 value)
  • Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion (a $40 value)
This month's box did have some misses for me - especially the Eyeko liner as I have so many black liners, and I don't particularly like Eyeko's liners.  Also, I wouldn't have minded two skincare products if they were more different.  While one is a serum and one is a moisturizer, they are both morning routine products.  I do really like the palette!  All told, this $25 Ipsy Glam Bag Plus has a value of $172!

December 2018 Ipsy Glam Bag Plus

DHL took FOREVER to deliver my Glam Bag Plus this month, which is why this post is so late, but this box was well worth the wait.  Ipsy decided to stop sending bags quarterly with the GBP to focus more on products, so what would have been the January bag was included as a bonus this month.  The items I received were:
  • F.A.R.A.H. Gold Face Brush Trio (a $40 value)
  • Lancome Le Monochromatique in Haute Couture (a $25 value)
  • Smith & Cult Book of Eyes Palette in Interlewd (a $44 value)
  • Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Jealous (a $32 value)
  • 111Skin Vitamin C Brightening Booster (a $180 value)
All told, this $25 Ipsy Glam Bag Plus has a value of $321, which is incredibly unbelievable!

November 2018 Ipsy Glam Bag Plus

This month's Ipsy Glam Bag Plus was not as awesome as last month's, but had a much higher value.  I was a little upset to get the blush palette instead of the shadow palette, but all of these items are really nice, and I was very excited to try Makeup Geek, especially in a foiled lip gloss. The items I received were:
  • SLMissGlam Eyeshadow Brush Trio (a $45 value)
  • OFRA Rodeo Drive Highlighter (a $35 value)
  • Makeup Geek Foiled Lip Gloss in Accoustic (a $12 value)
  • Tarte Cosmetics Make Every Moment Count Cheek Palette (a $32 value)
  • Dr. Brandt Skincare Needles No More No More Baggage Eye-Depuffing Gel (a $42 value)
All told, this $25 Ipsy Glam Bag Plus has a value of $166, $30 more than the 6 product first bag.

Affiliate Post: Sparkle Steel Blue

BellaHoot (clicking will take you to my affiliate link) has some great sparkle strips, both solid like these Sparkle Steel Blue, and with prints.  These are by far the easiest way to both apply and remove glitter nails.

October 2018 Ipsy Glam Bag Plus

The first Ipsy Glam Bag Plus didn't have any nail polish in it, but I still wanted to share all its awesomeness.  Since this was a the first one, it came with a bonus item, so 6 items instead of the usual 5.  It was also the first of the quarter, so it came with a make-up bag.  The items I received were:


All told, this $25 Ipsy Glam Bag Plus has a value of $136, and I will use every product.

Pink Ribbon

It's October, so time to break out the Pink Ribbon strips from Color Street.  This set is set to retire soon, but they do currently carry a Hope, Love, Cure set for childhood cancer and an Autism Awareness set with puzzle pieces.  As always, if you need a Color Street rep, drop a comment below and I'll set you us with some awesome ladies.
