Unboxing Ipsy Glam Bag, February 2017

Price: $10.00 USD (+$4.95 shipping to Canada) Number of items: 5 (+a cute bag).

Ipsy is a monthly subscription service that introduces customers to new hair and beauty products.
ipsy_feb-2017_2This month’s theme is Much Love, spreading that warm fuzzy feeling all around. I thought the bag was super cute with the neon orange detailing and the jean material.

All prices are converted to Canadian Dollars

I have not opened this yet but it is described as a hair oil on Ipsy’s website. It has rosehip oil to protect from UV damage, coconut oil to seal in moisture and argan oil to condition. It can protect hair up to 425 degrees, I don’t use temperatures that high but it’s good to know that it can withhold a lot of heat. I was on the Briogeo website and it looks like this is made for most hair types and had really awesome reviews!

Royal & Langnickel MODA Fan Brush
Full Size: $19.64, this is full size
ipsy_feb-2017_4I LOVE receiving brushes in my bags and I’ve come to really appreciate this brand for its quality and price. The bristles are super soft and synthetic which will be perfect to for highlighter.

Seraphine Botanicals Luminude in Primrose
Full Size: $31.42 (10mL), this is full size
ipsy_feb-2017_5This is designed to be a highlighter on darker complexions because of it’s soft gold colour. Although I won’t be able to wear it as highlighter I still think it makes a beautiful all over lid shade or an inner corner highlight when I want to do something more brown on my eyes. On the Ipsy website it states that the primerose oil is great for helping acne, wrinkles, and eczema so I’m happy about that. Other things to note is that this is 94% natural, vegan, and hypoallergenic!

NYX Butter Lipstick in Lifeguard
Full Size: $9.00, this is full size!
ipsy_feb-2017_6This has a satin finish and I like the semi-sheer berry red colour of this lip butter. I really love how NYX has formulated these, they feel light and hydrating like a balm but have nice pigmentation to add colour to the lip. Lifeguard is described as a deep magenta, bold but wearable.

Hikari Cosmetics Cream Pigment Eyeshadow in Latte.
Full Size: $17.00 (.14oz), Sample Size: $4.25 (0.035oz)
ipsy_feb-2017_7Oh Hikari, fancy seeing you in yet another Ipsy bag! haha! I don’t have any cream eyeshadows lately so it’s really nice to see one in my bag. This feels really smooth and creamy and when I swatched it and I was really impressed with the coppery colour (which is also a bit strange that they named this Latte). You can sweep this over the lid for an instant golden eyelid. For me this feels like a repeat product since I will be using the Seraphine Botanicals the same way. Also, it’s a bit of a bummer that Hikari doesn’t ship to outside the US.

Swatches!
Below are the swatches of the different makeup items I received. Note that the NYX lipstick is in Lifeguard as I mentioned above NOT Ripe Berry that I mislabeled below.

My Thoughts
Ipsy was great this month! I’ve received products that I know I will use and some that are different from what I currently own! I’m most excited to try the Briogeo hair protector. Total value of my bag: $82.89! wow!

Did you get Ipsy this month? What have you been enjoying?

Lots of Love,
Dal

  1. Nice bag! That fan brush looks really nice. I love fan brushes for highlighters too.
    And I think you’re onto something with using that highlighter in Primrose as an eye shadow colour – it’d looks stunning in the center of the lids.
    Nice bag – I really like the denim pouch too.

    • Thanks! Fan brushes are really awesome, I keep a few on my vanity – 1 for highlight and 1 for brushing away fallout under the eye. This one feels super soft.

      Primrose is a really great lid shade, I wore it today and it gives just the right amount of shimmer! Perfect for lazy days spent at home LOL!!
