Ipsy Glam Bag Review

I told you a few weeks back that I cancelled Birchbox and switched over to Ipsy Glam Bag. I finally received the bag and I am thrilled with it!



I got mostly full sized products, which is drastically different from Birchbox. Also, instead of a box, the products came in an adorable reusable make-up bag. I am a bag lady so I greatly appreciate the fact that I will get a makeup bag every month.


It was so nice to see a full sized roll on perfume in my bag; It has a light, floral scent with a hint of jasmine. It's not overpowering but still strong enough to last all day.


I received two mini (but still nice sized) packages of clear brow gel. I've never used brow gel before but everyone says that you should so it was nice to receive this. I used it once and I like it. It really smooths out your eyebrows, gives them better shape, and I'll definitely be incorporating brow gel into my make up routine


This was by far my favorite product; receiving a full sized nail polish is my life's calling. I've also been wanting to try Zoya for months now and it's great to get this. The pale pink color called 'Gie Gie' is perfect for summer and will probably look amazing against tanned skin.


A full sized lipstick is also perfect. I was really excited about it but when I saw the shade I received, I was kind of disappointed. I got an orange color which isn't that flattering. I know orange lipstick is in but the person who said orange is the new pink was seriously disturbed. I'm still happy with it though.


This was the only real "sample" in the Ipsy bag. It was a small pot of concealer that is supposed to be a refill for the full size. I usually cant use regular concealer because I need a color corrector but this concealer is pretty great at covering dark spots. This shade is slightly off on my skin tone but it still works great.

Also in the glambag, I received $110 off a NUME hair product; I will definitely be purchasing a new hair straightener with it.

Altogether, the Ipsy Glam bag was incredible. The products were better and it was a nice change that the products were full sized. I did miss the personalization and customer service of Birchbox but I think I'll keep up with Ipsy for the next few months.
