My Glam Bag came! My Glam Bag came! I didn’t get a tracking code from Ipsy for my bag this month, so I was surprised (and elated!) when it showed up at my door!

Products featured:

  • Nicole by OPI Roughles in “On What Grounds”– Full size! $6.99 (.5 oz). I have to tell you, I was not excited when I found out I was getting another nail polish in a subscription box. I also have to tell you I WAS WRONG! This polish is from the amazing Roughles line. The nail polishes are matte, with a gritty, sandy texture. Celeste says it looks like sand art. Win.

  • Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer– $9 (.4 oz) – I am not thrilled with the Flawless Beauty Primer. The product is shimmery, which I don’t love. It’s also too dark for me. I will be passing this on to Celeste to see if she can use it for a bronzen goddess kind of a look.

  • Be a Bombshell Bora Bora Eyeshadow Quad-Full size! $16 (.17 oz) I was hoping for this! This is a full eyeshadow quad in four beautiful colors. I am most excited to play with the coppery-red brown and the turquoise.

  • BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready – $7.50 (.05 oz) I could not be more happy with this sample! The color is a beautiful, natural pink, in a formula that goes on smooth, and stays. Also, it smells like vanilla mint. I like it! The Moxie sample also came with a BareMinerals coupon for a free sample and shipping with any order from their online store. (I took the coupon as a sign that I needed more BareMinerals in my life, and spent way more money than I should have.)

The Glam Bag

This month’s Glam Bag features the artwork of Klari Reis. (Check out her available works. Reis is incredible!) She based her artwork for this series on maps of San Francisco, home to both herself and Ipsy. Ipsy will be doing more collaborations with artists for Glam Bag artwork. I am SO excited about it!  I can’t wait to see what artists and works future bags will feature! The theme of the month is “Destination Beauty”, with products that evoke the sun, sand, and beach of it all.

Value

This month’s bag was a great value! I had to estimate a value for the nail polish, because it doesn’t seem to be in stores yet. (How awesome is it that we get to try it first?!?) According to my math, the approximate box value is $39.39. Quadruple the $10 I paid for it? Yes please! BareMinerals also included a coupon for free shipping and a free Lash Domination 10-in-1 volumizing mascara sample that I promptly used, so the box value was even higher for me. It was a great box!

Do you subscribe to Ipsy? If you don’t, but would like to, I would love it if you used my referral link! If you do, were you happy with your bag this month? What were your favorite products? What are you hoping for next month?

Hasta luego, chicas!
