Ipsy Glam Bag Review - February 2014 - Beauty Subscription Bag
What is it? Ipsy Glam Bag
How Much? $10 per month, plus $4.95 shipping to Canada
What’s in it? 4-5 beauty products every month
This month Ipsy shipped on February 10th and arrived February 17th. The theme for February is "The Look of Love" and features a bright pink pouch with white trim. Not my favourite pouch to date but I will probably be able to find a use for it.
Ipsy doesn't include a traditional product card, since there are usually many different bag variations. To find out about your products, you log into your account online and check out your Glam Room. This was mine for February:
I peeked at my Glam Room earlier this week, so I knew which products I would be receiving. Unboxing, or unbagging in this case, was still fun because I didn't know what colours I would be getting!
Because I peeked at my Glam Room in advance, I knew I would be receiving J Cat eyelashes, but I already received J Cat eyelashes in my June 2013 bag. Ipsy advertises no duplicates so I e-mailed them immediately. An Ipsy Care agent replied within a day:
Part of the fun of ipsy is trying new products, shades, and brands! But it’s not our goal to ever send the same product from the same brand. It looks like we made a mistake this month – so sorry! I put in an order for a surprise bonus item that will make your natural lashes look great!
This is just to demonstrate - if you ever receive a duplicate item, e-mail! I've now had positive customer care experiences with Ipsy and Topbox.
This is described as a "pink petal cream".
I'm not down with these colours. Time to re-do my Ipsy Match quiz.
F.A.B. is a new brand for ipsy. Nice to have something new. I've used their products before and they have been hit or miss with me. A full size is 4.7oz for $24.
I haven't tried this yet but the colour looks nice. Might be too pink for me though. A full size is 8.4g from $16.
As I wrote above, these lashes are a duplicate for me. I still haven't used the last pair I received. I my entire life, I have only worn falsies twice. Once was on my 30th birthday in Las Vegas and the other was a year ago when I was maid of honour at a friend's wedding. Both times my makeup, and the lash application, was done by a professional.
My February Ipsy Glam Bag included five products, three of them full size, with an approximate retail value of $29.62. I paid $14.95 for this one ($10 plus $4.95 shipping), so it's a good value. I'm not all that excited about the products this month, mostly because the eye shadows and lashes don't appeal to me. A co-worker of mine received her very first Ipsy bag this month and she was blown away by her products (very similar to mine) and loved everything.
What did you get in your February Ipsy Glam Bag?
