Hi loves! I recently signed up for ipsy’s glam bags! This is my very first subscription to the beauty box fad that’s been filling up my social media feed. I’ve looked into FunFitFab, Boxycharm, Allure, and many other beauty boxes but I could never bring myself to sign up for any of them until now!
It started when I came across an ipsy ad on instagram. I’m not one to fall for these ads but after looking through the comments, I noticed that customers really loved the products and the customer service was exceptional!
I went to their website and it looked promising! So I made an account and did their beauty quiz to personalize the products that will be included in my glam bag each month. The beauty quiz is so thorough, I actually loved doing it. It asks you questions ranging from your favourite brand name products, the colours palettes you prefer for your make up, your skin type, hair type and so forth. If you’ve gotten a tan, for example, and need to update your skin tone, you can totally do that by clicking on the ‘account‘ button on their website.
You can get a glam bag plus which has full sized products or just the regular glam bag which has sample sized products for $10. They arrive monthly. You even get the option to add more products to your bag each month for an extra cost. These extra add-on products can be full sized or sample sized. As well, ipsy allows they’re customers to earn reward points and ipsy cash to redeem for more products to add to your order each month!
Because this is my first beauty bag subscription I decided to try to regular glam bag with the sample products. I thought, if I liked a certain sample product, I can just purchase the full sized product myself rather than receive a full sized product that I didn’t like. Plus, its only $10! I had to give it a try and I’m so glad I did!
In this post, I’m going to share with you my very first July ipsy glam bag!
So firstly, I want to point out that it’s delivered in this dazzling pink package!
And the products come in a stylish make up pouch in the picture below.
For this month of July, I received…
- Palm tree covered pouch
- HEMPZ Sweet Pineapple & Honey Melon Herbal Body Moisturizer
- Midflower Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Sheet Masks (two packages)
- LARITZY Cosmetics Dew Pot in the colour Utopia
- PACIFICA Beauty Bronzer Blush Duo
- CUCCIO COLOUR Nail Polish in Mercury Rising
Midflower Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Sheet Masks
Just recently I tried the Midflower hyaluronic moisturizing sheet mask and it left my skin so soft and smooth!
The mask contains hyaluronic acid for moisture, and firming, and flower water (ancient practice).
In my beauty quiz, I placed an emphasis on skin care products because I take my skin care very seriously. I love the idea of receiving new face masks and other skin care products to try every month!
HEMPZ Sweet Pineapple & Honey Melon Herbal Body Moisturizer
The first thing I did was flip open the lid and take a big whiff out of the bottle… It smelt soooooooo good! It literally smelt like candy, I almost wanted to lick my hands!
This moisturizer contains hemp seed oil, hydrating pineapple extract, and honey melon extract which is high in antioxidants.
I loved that it’s light weight and absorbs into the skin quickly – not greasy at all. Also, 100% vegan, gluten-free, and THC-free.
PACIFICA Beauty Bronzer Blush Duo
PACIFICA is an award-winning brand for its vegan and cruelty-free products. It’s highly pigmented but also blends beautifully.
I absolutely love this coconut and rose infused bronzer and blush duo. It really smells like roses with a hint of coconut! The blush is in the shade wildrose and has a bit of sparkle to it so I tend to skip my highlighter when I use this blush. The bronzer is in the shade desert and it’s my new go to bronzer!
Great for on the go, especially with the handy little mirror on the back of it.
LARITZY Cosmetics Dew Pot in the colour Utopia
I was a bit iffy with this product at first because my face is normally oily and I have high cheek bones so using highlighters like this one would accentuate those features a bit too much…
For those who love highlighters and dewy make up looks, this might be the right product for you! This product feels like a pomade and blends very smoothly on the skin.
LARITZY is based in Montreal and provides cruelty-free products with the highest quality ingredients for your skin!
CUCCIO COLOR Nail Polish in Mercury Rising
I am terrible at painting my own nails, so when I received this product I was hesitant to use it. The colour however swayed me, so I had to give it a go. It’s a lovely shade of grape purple and very easy to sweep onto your nails. However, on the second day, this nail polish chipped!… I don’t know about you guys but I think I’ll just stick to the professionals at my local nail salon…
But on the plus side, CUCCIO COLOUR is known for their collection of 10-free formulas which are nail polishes free of harmful ingredients to your health.
I’m so glad I signed up for this beauty box subscription and I’m looking forward to sharing the next bundle of samples for August with you all!
Thanks for reading! xoxo
