Ipsy Glam Bag: March 2014

Hey there!

After Chelsey from My Beauty Full Adventure posted on her Facebook page that she received her Ipsy Glam Bag today I just had to go check my mailbox, and mine was waiting for me too, yay! It’s always exciting to see that hot pink bubble envelope in there… I should take a picture next time. 🙂

This month’s theme is Destination Beauty: Exotic beaches or a simple stay-cation – what beautiful destination is your March Glam Bag getting ready for?

Let’s see what I got!

$ Note: all prices are in US dollars. $

The bag this month was designed by Klari Reis.

bareMinerals Mervelous Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready – 0.05 oz sample – 0.12 oz/$18

Make an impact with Marvelous Moxie™ Lipstick. Creamy, super-saturated, ultra-pigmented color glides on like butter for full coverage in a rich satin finish. Lips look fuller and more voluptuous. An infusion of minerals revitalizes lips for a healthy-looking pout, while a moisture-loaded hydrating complex helps to nourish and condition with Abyssinian Oil and Omega Fatty Acids for supple, baby-soft smoothness. All the while, an encapsulated vitamin A, C and E complex helps to deliver antioxidant defense, so you’re ready for anything—and everything.

Honestly I would have preferred to receive the gloss since I’m more a gloss person, but this colour seems nice and creamy so I will definitely give it a shot.

Chella Eyeliner Pen in Indigo Blue – full size! – $24

Experience Chella’s Eyeliner Pen, a formula so incredible and surprising it almost describes itself. Highly innovative, never-done before – this pigmented, non-staining eyeliner ink provides a sleek, high-intensity eye make-up that lasts all day. This silky eyeliner glides on to define, emphasize and embolden with long lasting vibrant color that stays on until you want it gone!

– Lasts all day
– Water resistant
– Smudge proof
– Quick drying, no feathering
– Free of NANO, free of parabens
– Patent pending

Whoa that is a bright blue liner! I will still try it out, but this is definitely not a colour I’m used to having on my eyes.

NYX Love in Rio Eyeshadow Palette in Segredos De Giselle- full size! – $6

Escape to Rio…if only with your eyes. Inspired by the non-stop action of this exotic city, these 3-color eye shadow palettes give you high-glam, go-anywhere intensity day and night thanks to their highly pigmented formulations. Hit the beach in natural nudes, then dance the night away with a shimmering sweep of juicy color from the dual-ended applicator.

This is definitely a colour palette I would’ve picked up myself so I’m looking forward to trying it out. I had decent colour payoff just swatching it on my bare arm so I hope it will translate well onto the eyes as well.

Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer – 12ml sample – 30ml/$22

The Pixi Beauty Flawless Beauty Primer is loaded with skin loving ingredients. Formula contains powerful anti-aging and skin fortifying benefits. Formula suitable for all skin types.

I’m not sure if this is the type of product that will disappear (colour-wise) once I spread it on my face, but if not the colour seems to match my skin quite well.


Once I try these products I will post more in-depth reviews about them.

This bag’s value comes up to about $46, which I find pretty good considering the price of the subscription.
