Ipsy Glam Bag January 2016

Welcome to my new addiction, Ipsy Glam Bag. Much like my StitchFix obsession, Ipsy subscription service delivers surprise goodies to my mailbox every month. However, Ipsy is much much more affordable! For only $10.80 per month I receive 5 makeup or beauty items matched to my preferences and profile. 

After months of feeling kind of blah about my beauty routine, I decided to give Ipsy a try. Ipsy has been a pleasant surprise for me.  I am so out of my element when it comes to makeup/skincare/beauty items. A store like Sephora overwhelms me. I don't know the first place to start when I'm in the makeup aisles at Target. Plus, makeup is so darn expensive, $10 feels like a drop in the hat.  If you can relate, I have a referral link HERE. Referral links are more of a nicety than a necessity. I appreciate the gesture if you use my link. I'm none the wiser if you don't! 

Now let us get to the fun stuff!!

Every month, Ipsy beauty items are put together in a cute little makeup bag. January 2016 bag looked like this. I love it!

All Ipsy subscriptions are not created equal. Each box is tailored to the individual. What you see here may not be what you receive in the same month. It just gives you a general idea.

#1 Pixi by Petra eyeshadow. I've seen this affordable brand in Target but never bought it. The price is extremely affordable. My review was not so great. My eyes are sensitive to eye makeup and what got into my eyes was very irritating.

#2 Ofra Eyebrow pencil. The color is universal. I haven't gotten a chance to use this product properly because my eyebrows are a hot mess. I can say the color is nice. The product goes on easily. 

#3 The Balm Mr. Write (Now) in Scott. I love this product. The color is purple which is something I would never buy for myself but is a new favorite. I'm a big fan of the product already! 

#4 Skone smudge brush. I have yet to Google what this brush is intended for. I used it to smudge my eyeliner and the brush worked like a charm! I'm a newbie so I can't help you with the details. You have to start somewhere!

#5 Skyn Iceland cleansing cloths. This product was not for me. It left a burning sensation on my skin after using. I'm not into that feeling with anything that goes on my skin.

So, what do you think? Not too bad for the price. And if you shop around, $10 is "a helluva deal" for 5 makeup items! I am by no means a beauty blogger or makeup guru. I'm just an average gal who needed a little change! 


  1. I loved my January IPSY bag! Heck I love all of the bags.

  2. Nice stuff! That eyeshadow looks pretty.
