Ipsy Glam Bag (March 2017 Review)

Today, I am reviewing my March Ipsy Glam Bag. If you aren't familiar with Ipsy...Each month, for $10, I am sent a personalized bag filled with beauty products!

After, arriving home from a month in California, my February and March glam bags were waiting for me to open them. I was really happy with my March bag. 

This month, the bag was bigger than usual. Perfect for throwing in my purse!

 1. Doucce

Freematic Eyeshadow in Marisa

This eyeshadow comes in a personalized palette of 4 for $35.00

I happen to love anything rose gold and this has a pretty shimmer which I really liked. 
It is suggested to be used for a dual purpose. You can use this as an eyeliner as well, and I am excited to try that out.
The color builds up, so you can leave it subtle, or go for something more vivid. 

2. Tarte cosmetics
tarteist™ quick dry matte lip paint in rosé

Full size retails for $20.00

I love Tarte. Their products are of good quality and seem to really last me a while. I'm picky about lipstick shades, but love this color. The applicator makes it go on very smoothly and it dries almost instantly. 

3. Beau Gâchis
Tapered Blending Brush
Retails for $12.00

A girl can never have too many brushes, right? I always look forward to getting a new makeup brush in my Ipsy bag each month. The bristles are very soft. I used this brush to blend in my eyeshadow, but it can be used to highlight your cheekbones, or contour your nose.

4. Air Repair Skincare
Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer

Full size retails for about $17.50

I travel a lot and so smaller items that I can easily pack always come in handy. I was just saying how I wanted to try a new moisturizer and then came home to this! So far, I am really enjoying this. It is lightweight and hydrating. I can use this before I put makeup on, since it absorbs pretty quickly. 

5. Chella
Eyebrow Highlighter Pencil in Ivory Lace

Retails for $18.00 

When I saw this product, I was excited to try it out. I immediately thought to apply it above the brow bone. This is a multi purpose pencil, which means you can also use it to cover up a blemish, as an under eye concealer, etc. The pencil is very creamy and a little goes a long way. This product is definitely going into my makeup bag!

  2. Great information!! Thanks Lauren!

  3. I am not really into make up, but I use Mac products. May be I will try ipsy product and see if it works for me. Thanks for sharing

  14. This is my first time hearing about the brand but I am in love with their products. I love the look of that nude lippie x

  15. That bag is pretty good value for money. I'm not a huge makeup fan myself, but I am sure many people will find happiness in receiving a bag like this every month!

  16. I'm loving the items in this Ipsy bag. The shades are perfect for you.

  17. These bags have become so popular. I may have to invest in one.

  18. This bag looks like a value for money. The shade is also very nice. I don't use makeup often but I still have similar shades with me

  19. I've never heard of them before. I'm mostly use MAC but I digress. However, I know my aunt would love this and the price is right up her alley. And yes, you can never have too many brushes!
