Ipsy Glam Bag Review - December 2014 - Beauty Subscription Box

This post contains referral links.

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 
Ipsy is a San Francisco based beauty subscription that sends a beautiful Glam Bag filled with with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Once you've received your Glam Bag, you can head over to the Ipsy Community to watch tutorial videos and play along with the Ipsy stylists, using the same products they are using.

The theme for December is "Thinking of You". There were several different product cards sent out. Mine says "You are a Talented Being". I've seen others that say "You are a Fearless Heroine", "You are an Inspiring Original", "You are a Brave Soul", and "You are a Creative Being". It's a cute idea, and out of all the phrases mailed out, I think the one I received suits me best. How did you know, Ipsy?!
Our happy thoughts are filled with YOU this month. Thank you for a 2014 full of beauty, wisdom, and inspiration. You've given us so many reasons to smile and look forward to another amazing year ahead. Who are you thinking of and thankful for this month?
Sexy Hair 450° Blow Out Heat Defense Blow Dry Spray (50ml, $7.67)
In addition to outstanding thermal protection, it also conditions for smooth, sleek styles, detangles for improved manageability and strengthens hair. Helps to decrease blow dry time and adds weightless shine.

Beauty Without Cruelty 3% A.H.A. Facial Cleanser (2 ounces, $2.81)
Beauty Without Cruelty 3% A.H.A. Facial Cleanser is a lightly-foaming, soap-free cleanser that removes dead surface skin cells, daily impurities, and excess oil without over-cleaning your skin.

Cailyn Just Mineral Eye Polish in Orchid (full size, $15)
Made with 100% raw mineral powder, this highly pigmented satiny powder not only colors your eyes with shimmery, gorgeous hues, but is also safe to wear long hours.

Tarte Deluxe Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara (3ml, $10)
Tarte’s best-selling mascara lengthens, curls, volumizes and conditions to deliver a 330% increase in lash volume instantly. The high-performance formula is also infused with naturally-derived olive esters to help nourish and protect lashes.

NYX Cosmetics Butter Lip Balm in Marshmallow (full size, $4)
This Buttery Lip Balm is addictively soft and scrumptious and perfect for adding a subtle hint of color for a naturally flirtatious pout. Apply directly to bare lips or apply it over lip liner for more intense color.

The December Ipsy Glam Bag included five products with an estimated value of $39.48. I paid $17.53 CDN this month ($14.95 US) so it's a great value. The Tarte mascara is one of the most deluxe samples we've received from Ipsy in a while. Usually it's a lot of lower end products, like the NYX lip balm. I'm excited to try the facial cleanser to see if it does anything for my complexion. The Sexy Hair product is good to have, but I already have so many heat protector products, this one may get gifted. I just received a Cailyn mineral eye shadow just like this from Popbasic, but it's a different colour. Overall I'm pleased with this box. there are some great products and I love the mix of beauty, skincare, and haircare.

  1. We have the same products again :) I loved the heat protector, best I've tried and I liked the face cleanser too

  2. Great products in here. I like that the makeup bag looks to fit a lot of stuff inside too.

  3. Mine was the same but I got two mascaras ... http://www.teenaintoronto.com/2014/12/ipsy-glam-bag-december.html
