Hey Ipsters! Welcome to another Glam Bag review.
This month’s theme is: Très Jolie
Pretty is as pretty does
Below is a shot of my March bag:
Ipsy is a monthly subscription service. Each month, subscribers will receive an awesome Glam Bag with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Members can watch and play along with the stylists with the same products that they are using. All for only $10 a month.
I have been a member for more than 3 years and I absolutely love it. I have discovered so many excellent products through Ipsy! I may not always love everything I receive but for only 10.00 a month it is such a fun surprise to look forward to each month! Ipsy spotlights numerous brands each month and you will generally receive something from 5 of them! In addition to the products received you will get discount codes from most brands…even the ones that you do not receive! This months’ discounts include but are not limited to: Indie Lee, Luxie Beauty, Juice Beauty, biobelle, Tarte and many more, the discounts range between 10% -50% off purchase (averaging at 20-25%) and are occasionally a dollar amount. They sometimes include a gift with purchase.

(It delights me when everything matches)
Per Cosmetics Disappearing Ink 4-in-1 Concealer Light: Deluxe Sample. Full Size $23.00
This is only the second item that I have tried from Pür Cosmetics; but, it is also the second item from Pür that I absolutely love…so this speaks volumes. This ultra lightweight concealer is filled with good for you ingredients as well as light reflecting particles that help to mask imperfections. The formula feels very thin, but is not short on coverage. I’ll never quit my It Cosmetics bye bye undereye; but I do not use that product in the way I’m using this, but more as a spot concealer with a teeny tiny brush and to lightly dot along the undereye ‘shadow line’. This is the best all over undereye and highlight concealer I have found yet. It’s so light it does not settle in to lines, nor does it crease, it brightens the area and feels like wearing nothing. I have this soft, super flat concealer brush that I use to apply this by lightly tapping and it works beautifully. Great product. I wish the full sized version was in a tube as this sample is and not a pen, but I plan to purchase it anyway because I really love the product. And just an FYI, the other Pür Cosmetics product I love is the Elevation cheek and highlight palette. If you are looking for an amazing highlight and do not want to spend a fortune, this mini palette contains 3 shades and a mini fan brush for only $15 bucks and it is seriously one of the favorite products I own. It is totally worth a purchase. I purchased mine at Ulta over the holidays, but you can check it out here (the site photos do not do it justice)

Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint: Deluxe Mini. Full Size $20.00
This Tarte Cosmetics lip paint has a precision applicator, making the product super easy to apply and deepen for a more intense look. The formula glides on easily , feeling super smooth in the process. The product completely dries, very suddenly, and feels quite dry instantly, but after a minute or so it no longer feels this way and the product becomes virtually unnoticeable. I honestly forget I am even wearing anything a few moments after I have applied this. It looks great on, not dry or crackly and this rosé shade is my perfect every day hue. I’ve worn this several times since receiving it. I own a couple additional shades but they are much deeper, brighter and more intense colors. This one works perfectly for me.
So Susan Blush & Glow luminizing Blush: Full Size $22.95
I have never really known much about this brand, or thought much of it, but of the several products I’ve received over many years from the brand; this one is definitely my favorite. This multi-chromatic, luminizing blush is fall out free, long lasting and easy to apply. The shade is kind of a natural nude rose with a bit of a peachy-ness to it. Ultra flattering (reminds me of a really popular cult blush) and I assume it would be flattering on most anyone.
Skone Cosmetics Luxe Blending Brush:
Love this blending brush. The brush portion is longer, and rounded at the top. It’s just soft and fluffy enough. It’s great for blending out harsh edges, blending in to the crease and as a final step blending/softening your final eye look. The brush itself looks nice as well; black with pretty rose gold accents. I love a shiny brand new makeup brush.

JeNu Marine Collagen Mineral Gel: Deluxe Mini. Full Size $29.00
This light weight gel feel serum has marine collagen to promote skin’s natural collagen production and hyaluronic acid to draw water, keeping skin plumped and moist. This product is new and only on pre-sale currently. Click here to read more about the product. I’ve only been using this once or twice a day for about 4 or 5 days, but I like it so far. It feels more like a gel and not a serum, it’s pretty light once absorbed in the skin, a bit sticky, but not for too long. It did give my skin a bit more of a bouncy feeling and some extra moisture. I’ll finish the vial out and then determine how I feel about the product.
Nice bag this month. Cute bag and theme, everything looked really pretty together and I received some great new products to try. $37.95 in full sized products, plus a few excellent deluxe sized samples! What did you get in your bag this month? Any new favorites?
