After attending the genbeauty expo in June 2017. I was curious about the Ipsy glambags. A few of my friends had ordered them and they did like them. The Ipsy Glam bag program is you purchase a monthly or annual membership. A monthly membership cost $10USD and free shipping in the US, $4.95 shipping to Canada. An annual memebership is $110USD for 11months plus one month free and free shipping to the US, it’s plus $4.95 shipping every month to Canada. It’s around $19C every month, the annual subscription with $4.95 shipping each month is around $210C.
What do you get in an Ipsy Glam bag? First when you subscribe and get off the wait list there is a beauty quiz you have to take and they use it to personalize and to better suit your glam bag to you. Each month there are 5 deluxe beauty samples (usually 1-2 full size are included too) plus a bag to hold it all. On to the good stuff my first Ipsy glam bag!

My thoughts and reviews
COUGAR 24 HOUR LIQUID LIP IN MULBERRY
I love the shade, its a mauve plum shade, which is right my alley. It’s pigmentented, easy to apply and dries down but it doesn’t dry out my lips. I didn’t find it long lasting and definitely won’t last 24 hours. I would give it a good 4 hours before needing to reapply. I do like the product and would definitely buy from the company, but ordering from a UK company in Canada is going to be super expensive.
The perfect summer pink shade. I loved the colour and used it on fingers and toes. I normally don’t do matching mani and pedi but I loved the pink shade on my toes that I had try it out on my fingers. The formula is on the thin side so I used 3-4 coats. On my toes especially except for the big toe I used 2 coats. I didn’t have any cracks or dents for 5 days then I started to have some tip wear.
TARTE RAINFOREST OF THE SEA, DEEP DIVE CLEANSING GEL
I had never used a cleansing gel or even thought of buying a cleansing gel. I am in love with it, I finished that tiny sample right away and went to buy a big full size version. After washing with it my skin feel so soft and smooth. I had to tell my best friend about it. She bought the full size one too and loves it. One little con is the small it isn’t a particular nice smell but it disappears quickly enough so it doesn’t get too annoying.
HEMPZ ULTRA MOISTURIZERING HERBAL LIP BALM
It’s a nice lightweight herbal moisturizering balm for summer. It’s not thick or sticky but it still leaves my lips feeling soft after applying. Especially in summer I don’t want thick or goopy balms, but since my lips can still get dry in the summer this lightweight balm is perfect. It’s made from 100% natural hemp seed oil and provides nourishment, hydration and conditioning to lips.
OFRA COSMETICS EYE SHADOW IN VICTORY
I’m not much of an eye shadow person. It is a nice colour applies smoothly and is creamy and metallic.
I love/like all these products so for my first Ipsy Glam Bag ever I am impressed and I hope they will all be this good!
