This is my 4th month of receiving my Ipsy glam bag and I am definitely loving this one! The bag itself has a fun graphic design on the front (that Michelle Phan helped design!). I am billed $10 on the 1st of every month and typically receive my bag by the 15th. Below is my review of the 5 products I received!
- I have linked the websites of the companies and any other products I have talked about in this blog! They are linked through the green “here”. Just click on it and it will take you to the site! 🙂
Luxie Beauty – Small Tapered Blending Eye Brush 231 ($12)
This blending brush is AMAZING!!! I have yet to invest in high quality makeup brushes and now I know why they are so different. The bristles are extremely soft, it blends like a dream and most importantly (for me) it will apply Colourpop shadows! I love Colourpop’s eye shadows but not being able to apply them with most brushes can be very frustrating. This one picks up the shadows and applies them like a dream. I am so happy with this brush and I cannot wait to play around with my Colourpop shadows more!!

theBalm Cosmetics – Mary-Lou Manizer (Full size $24)
As an avid YouTube makeup tutorial watcher, I have heard just about every guru rave about this highlighter. While I do prefer a more dramatic highlight, this one is just perfect for subtle makeup days or for someone who wants a minimal glow. It honestly makes you look like you are glowing from within which is nice, especially if you didn’t get much sleep the night before!

Paula Dorf – Baby Eyes Enhancer (Full size $20)
This eyeliner is your typical waterline eye brightening color. I have nothing bad to say about this product but it is practically identical to the Rimmel ScandalEyes liner in Nude which is less than $5!! I would suggesting picking up that nude liner at your local drugstore instead 😉

Rimmel ScandalEyes in Nude here
UPDATE: I swatched these two eyeliners side-by-side and noticed that the Rimmel one is a bit more yellow toned while the Paula Dorf one is more of a salmon color. HOWEVER, when I tried to remove them with a makeup wipe, the Paula Dorf eyeliner came off right away while the Rimmel one did NOT budge! I was very impressed! Drugstore for the win!
VINTAGE by Jessica Liebeskind – Sparkling Lipgloss in Pink Sequin (Full size $21)
This lipgloss is a pretty light pink gloss with a slight sparkle. I don’t see myself wearing this everyday but it is gorgeous in the center of your lips for a highlight. I was thrown off by the brush but the bristles are actually quite stiff which is good because it makes for easy application. While I would probably not repurchase this, I think I will enjoy it for special occasions.

Perfectly Posh – BFF Best Face Forever Exfoliating Daily Face Wash (Full size $21)
I have heard so many great things about this face wash but unfortunately, the exfoliating beads were too harsh on my sensitive skin. There is no way I could use this daily but I’m sure it would be amazing if you aren’t super sensitive like me. It made your face feel fresh and left a slight minty tingle which I enjoyed. I still haven’t found an affordable face wash/cleanser so if anyone has any good suggestions for sensitive skin I’d love to know in the comments!

Total price I paid for the bag: $10
Total value of the bag: ~$98 (using the full size product estimations)
I cannot be happier with the value of my bag this month! I will use all of the products and I will definitely be reusing this bag! (They work great for traveling!)
