I think ipsy might be on a roll because, like last month, I liked this bag a lot! But still, I don’t like it as much as I like Birchbox. They are the same price and nine times out of ten, ipsy has a higher value, but, for whatever reason, I’m not not as excited about it. I think it might be because everyone gets the same bag? Not sure?
This month’s theme was “Super Stars” and was put together so you can “indulge in the best finds that the beauty world has to offer. 2013 will be the best year yet!”.
I’ve mentioned it before, but since ipsy has online videos about each of the products and how to use them, they don’t have an information card like all the other boxes. The card tells you what discounts are offered on the products in this month’s bag.
Here’s what was inside this month:
~Pacifica Body Butter (Tuscan Blood Orange) ($7): This stuff smells amazing. Amazing. As soon as I use this up (which should only take like a week), I am going to buy more. And it’s 100% vegan in case you wonder about that kind of thing.
~Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil ($4.67): I have blogged about this before, but JM Argan Oil sucks the life out of my skin. This is something that I wanted to love oh so much, but it just didn’t work for me. However, I like it for my hair and nails, so I am happy for the cute little travel sized bottle!
~Nailtini/Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer (Frappe) ($15): I believe that ipsy sent out all sorts of different colors and while pale polishes aren’t my favorites, I don’t hate it either. I will put some glitter polish over this and put it to good use. I’m always happy to get polish!
~Sexy Hair/Spray & Play Volumizing Hairspray ($2.48): While the least expensive, this is my favorite product in the entire bag! I don’t think I have ever gotten a hair spray in any of my beauty bags and I am thrilled. I love this brand and will be throwing this in my travel bag asap!
~SOHO Concealer Brush ($7.99): I probably wouldn’t buy this for myself (I’ve never used a concealer brush), but I am happy to get it and try it out!
~Navy Make-Up Bag ($2): Once again I am valuing this at $2 because I know it has some value, but I have no clue what it is. I love the inside print and the cute ipsy label!
All totaled, the January ipsy Glam bag has a value of $39.14. Way more than the $10/month cost, but less than some of the other months I’ve received. However, I think this has been one of my favorite ipsy bags to date! Probably because it didn’t have more eyeliner in it .
