Here’s everything I received in this month’s Ipsy Glam Bag Plus!

Nature’s Cartel Lip Stick in 90’s Nostalgia – $15
While I like that this creamy lipstick is really moisturizing and that it feels great on the lips, I was not a fan of the dark brown-mauve shade which is, well, as the name suggests, very 90’s nostalgic- I’m pretty sure Pamela Anderson wore a similar color back in her Baywatch days.
Purlisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum – $58 value
I have loved every Purlisse product I’ve tried thus far and this Purlisse eye serum is no exception! The plant-based formula contains a bevy of natural ingredients including French marine plants, soy proteins, and vitamin E which improves the appearance of fine lines, crows feet, puffiness, and dark circles. The gel-cream formula also hydrates, brightens, firms, and absorbs quickly. It’s everything you want in an eye treatment in one tube!
Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Booster Serum – $80 value
Subscribers get to choose one item in each month’s Ipsy Glam Bag Plus and this pricey Juice Beauty serum was my pick. Juice Beauty makes amazing natural skincare products that are ingredient conscious and effective so I was excited to give this serum a try! This lightweight serum contains a vitamin-rich juice base that includes soothing aloe and brightening apple (all organically grown in Juice Beauty’s very own vineyard!) along with fruit stem cells, Vitamin C, and resveratrol-rich grapeseed to also improve skin tone and texture. Since I began using this a week ago I have noticed an improvement in skin texture (smoother) and radiance (definitely brighter!) so I will continue use!
Wander Beauty Wanderess Rush Eyeshadow Palette – $25 value
Wander Beauty makes some of the prettiest palettes so I was really happy to see this lovely eyeshadow palette in the box! It features a built-in mirror and 6 eyeshadows with two matte shades, two glittery shades, and two metallics. The colors are warm and remind me of shades you’d see in a sunset and are very wearable! The formula is creamy, highly pigmented, and blends well too.
Ahava Essential Day Moisturizer – $67 value
As if there wasn’t already enough amazing skincare products in this box, Ipsy also included a full size Ahava Day Moisturizer worth $67!! This daily facial moisturizer is perfect for this time of year when skin needs an extra hydration boost. The rich formula is packed with tons of minerals from Dead Sea water, Vitamin E, Vitamin B5, and a dose of amino acids for soft, glowy skin. This cream feels luxe on the skin and I like that it has the same classic Ahava scent that I recognize from their body lotion. Overall a fantastic moisturizer and great to layer over the Juice Beauty serum!
This month’s Ipsy Glam Bag Plus has the perfect mix of skincare and makeup and is worth a whopping $245 so it’s an amazing value for the $25 per month price! I like that I can choose one of the products and also that I can purchase up to 5 add-on products at highly discounted prices. (Add-ons are available for all Ipsy subscriptions when you “reveal” your Glam Bag- Ipsy emails you when your box is ready to customize and view.) I will use all of the products except the 90’s Pammy lippie so overall it’s a win!
Is this box still available?
Yes! If you sign up now for Ipsy Glam Bag Plus, you’ll get a January 2020 box but keep in mind your box contents may vary from mine as the products you receive are based on your Ipsy beauty profile (sans any product you specifically choose for your box of course).
