Ipsy is a monthly subscription for beauty products that has a Glam Bag that is $10.00 and a Glam Bag Plus that is $25.00. The Glam Bag PLUS comes with five full sized products.
We have received the Ipsy Glam Bags for a year but this is our first time getting the PLUS so we were excited to see what items we would receive. You can read my regular Ipsy Glam Bag reviews here:
The April 2019 Glam Bag Plus is about Fresh Spring Beauty.
I feel we got a nice assortment of products for me and my two teens to try. I am more into skincare where they enjoy the makeup products.
Item 1: IT Cosmetics – Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush #704 – Retail Value $48.00 – This brush is touted as the brush that does it all. It “gives makeup products an airbrushed finish, blurring away fine lines & pores.” Per their website, this brush features “patent-pending Heavenly Skin™ hair infused with anti-aging collagen, silk, peptides, niacin, and antioxidants.” Cruelty free product. https://amzn.to/2IhiDhA
Item 2: Paris Hilton Skincare – ProD.N.A. Dual-Action Cleansing Gel – Retail Value $29.00 – This is a cleansing gel “with exfoliating caviar lime & pineapple-derived enzymes.” I felt it worked good and it smells clean. I personally didn’t care for this particular smell but it isn’t strong so it wasn’t bad. Made in the USA and a cruelty free product. https://amzn.to/2IfuoVR
Item 3: Goldfaden MD – Bright Eyes (Dark Circle Radiance Concentrate) – Retail Value $55.00 – This eye cream is ultra light and goes on so smoothly. It is a brightening eye cream that is supposed to deliver hydration to the eye area. https://amzn.to/2Db0dej
This product is free of parabens, petrochemicals, mineral oils, alcohol, silicone, and gluten. This is a vegetarian formula with organic and natural ingredients. It is dermatologist tested for all skin types and is made in the USA.
Item 4: Benefit Cosmetics – High Brow Eyebrow Highlighter – Retail Value $22.00 – This is a creamy highlighting brow pencil. I tried in on my hand and it has a matte finish. It went on smoothly and is very natural looking. https://amzn.to/2KwKdsW
“This creamy eyebrow highlighter accentuates arches for brighter, boosted, and younger-looking eyes.” Made in Germany.
Item 5: Laura Sanchez – Moods Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette – Retail Value $55.00 – This was definitely the winner from the box (according to my teens). They loved the bold colors for Spring & Summer with a mix of matte & metallic shades.
This palette is versatile and made in the USA.
I enjoyed our first Glam Bag Plus and felt there was a good value of products (Retail Value totaling $189.00) for only $25.00. There was a waitlist for the Glam Bag Plus but I believe they just opened this up to everyone.
