“HELLO, SPRING! ” | March 2016 Ipsy #GlamBag Review

Get ready. Get set. Glam Bag Time! Once again, I’m back to discuss the awesome that is Ipsy. How did the March Bag rate against the others? Let’s find out.


If you’re new to MGW (welcome aboard!), Ipsy is an affordable beauty subscription that sends subscribers a “Glam Bag” equipped with cosmetics and beauty accessories for just $10 a month. The wonderful thing about Ipsy is the ability to – mostly – customize the products you’ll receive each month. Upon signing up, subscribers can take a “beauty quiz” to determine beauty likes and dislikes, makeup preferences, and personal styles. Each glam bag/clutch contains 4-6 full sized and deluxe sample sized products from top cosmetics brands.


Personally, I adore Ipsy. I’ve been a member for a little over a year and each month I rush to the mailbox for my products (makeup addict, remember?). To be honest, there were three or four months that my products, mainly eyeshadow and lipsticks, were extremely light for my chocolate skin. I did retake the “beauty quiz” twice just to make sure I would get a better selection of colors. Thankfully, it worked. Everything I’ve received since has been amazing!


Each month is full of surprises. It’s also fun to search the internet or Instagram to see what other products subscribers received. Many conversations on Instagram started over the phrase, “Hey I got that in my bag” or “We’re bag twins”. Ipsy’s fun and a great way to be sociable, especially for introverts like me.



Now, let’s see what shipped last month…

Ipsy march 2016 5

Marc Anthony, Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco 3 Day Smooth Perfect Blow Dry Cream

This is probably the only product I don’t need. I’m very particular about what I put in my hair. So, this one will be gifted to a friend or family member.





Beau Gâchis Paris eye shadow brush

Beau Gâchis® Paris, Eyeshadow Brush

I love brushes! Can’t ever complain about a new brush.





Manna Kadar Cosmetics and Model Lip Lacquer

Manna Kadar Cosmetics, Eye Shadow in Fantasy

LOVE this shadow! It is light on my skin but works great as a shimmer. Perfect for what I need it to do.






ILLAMASQUA, Precision Ink in Abyss

My sister is the Eyeliner Queen and always trying to get me into it (wearing contacts since the age of 14 made me HATE eyeliner). However, since I get them in the glam bags I don’t mind giving them a try. This one worked fine, has a smooth application, and it lasts for a while. If I ever need it, I’ll have it.





ModelCo LIP LACQUER Lip Gloss

ModelCo, LIP LACQUER Lip Gloss in Socialite

The color is amazing. However, the gloss doesn’t last very long. Reapplication is a must!

Overall, the March “Hello, Spring!” Glam Bag served its purpose. I loved all but one of the products and was glad to get a good variety this time. Can’t wait to see what comes in April!


What do you think about the Ipsy Glam Bag?
