IPSY Glam Bag | August 2016

Ipsy is an online beauty subscription where you sample five different products (e.g. mascara, eyeshadows, etc.) mailed in a collectible bag. There’s a lovely theme each month and the products you receive are personalized according to your answers in a quiz, which is taken at the beginning of the subscription.

Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday ❤

It’s the last day of August, which means I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy for an entire year! I continue to enjoy the monthly gift in the mail and haven’t (*knocks on wood*) had any major issues with the subscription service. This twelfth glam bag was designed by Michelle Phan herself and I must say, it’s one of my favorites. The theme for August is “Sugar Highness” and Ipsy encourages us to “Live That Fantasy”.

IPSY Glam Bag | July 2016

July 2016 Glam Bag | Ingrid Nicole

Ipsy is an online beauty subscription where you sample five different products (e.g. mascara, eyeshadows, etc.) mailed in a collectible bag. There’s a lovely theme each month and the products you receive are personalized according to your answers in a quiz, which is taken at the beginning of the subscription.

Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday ❤

The theme of July’s Ipsy glam bag is “Hot Summer Nights,” an accurate description for the Southern California weather that I’m currently experiencing. The inspirations behind this month’s bag according to Ipsy’s website were “Bonfires, BBQS, and Pool parties.” As you can see below, the bag itself has many mini umbrellas on the front (which reminds me of peppermints lol) and a chrome/oil spill pattern on the back.


The products I received July 2016:

  1. Ms. Amazing & Queen Bee Masks by SHRAY – Although I have never heard of this particular brand, the sheet masks both look promising. The first mask, Ms. Amazing, is catered for sensitive and dry skin (something I personally struggle with). I’m excited to try out this moisturizing mask and the second mask, Queen Bee, since it’s an acne-treating mask.
  2. Delectable Lemon & Cream Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream from Delectable by Cake Beauty – I typically don’t care for hand creams in the summer because the heat makes lotions feel extra greasy. Luckily, I sampled this hand cream on a cool (indoors) day and found this product has some nourishing skin benefits. The fragrance “lemon & cream” lingers a bit though and is pretty strong.
  3. Professional Contour Eyeshadow Brush (4) by VASANTI COSMETICS – I. love. brushes. I enjoy receiving them in my glam bag and so was looking forward to trying this one out. The long bristles are meant to make contouring your eyes easier and I feel like it will work well for the crease.
  4. Hangover Replenishing Face Primer by Too Faced – Too Faced is one of my favorite high end, cruelty-free makeup brands out there. One of their most talked about products in the beauty community is the Hangover Face Primer. I’m excited to finally try this beauty out and share if it;s worth purchasing full-size in the future.
  5. Meet Matt(e) Trimony Eyeshadow (in Matt Moskowitz) by theBalm Cosmetics – theBalm Cosmetics is (also) a cruelty-free brand and one I wish to explore more of. I heard (and read) raving reviews on several of their products in the past, so I was thrilled when I discovered I was going to be able to try one of their eyeshadows. The color I received is a moody purple, plum and it’s quite blendable.July 2016 Glam Bag Sheet Mask (1)July 2016 Glam Bag Sheet Mask (2)July 2016 Glam Bag Hand LotionJuly 2016 Glam Bag BrushJuly 2016 Glam Bag PrimerJuly 2016 Glam Bag Eyeshadow

IPSY Bag | April 2016

IPSY | April 2016 Glam Bag

Ipsy is an online beauty subscription where you sample five different products (mascara, eyeshadows, etc.) mailed in a collectible bag. There’s a lovely theme each month and the products you receive are personalized according to your answers in a quiz, which is taken at the beginning of the subscription.

Hello everyone! Happy Saturday ❤

Ingrid, where have you been?! I know, I know. I haven’t posted in what feels like an eternity, but fear not my friend. I’m back now with an exciting ipsy bag to share and will be posting every Friday from here on out!

This month’s theme is “The Dreamers” and according to the ipsy website, this glam bag is meant to “create looks that celebrate every side of your unique beauty-from natural and understated to high fashion and ultra-glam.” As you can see below, the glam bag I received has warm tones on the front and cool tones on the back. I noticed the glam bags all have a similar tie-dye design, but there’s slight variations. For example, my lovely mother received her glam bag and it’s completely cool toned on both sides. So, if you received a glam bag from ipsy this month, chances are it’s unique for you.


The products I received April 2016:

  1. C427 Duo Fiber Blush Brush by Crown Brush – You should know, I’m a total sucker for quality brushes. Since the two brushes I’ve received from ipsy work great, I was excited to try out this new one [the C427 Crown Brush]. The bristles on the brush serve their purpose for blush (and highlight) application, but the grip on the handle feels odd when in use.
  2. Bright Eyes Eye Enhancing Eyeliner by Skinn Cosmetics – I actually do not own a nude eyeliner, so it was a real treat to find this one in April’s glam bag. The eyeliner is retractable, something I prefer for liners, and it glides on the waterline fairly well. Sadly, I feel the longevity of the product isn’t ideal, lasting only a couple of hours.
  3. LipSurgence lip crème (in Wonder) by Tarte Cosmetics – First off, the shade is absolutely lovely for the spring and summer. Kudos to Tarte for creating this color! The lip crayon is very creamy, glides on the lips beautifully, and lasts for a few hours. There is a bit of transfer with this lippy, but it works well as a cheek stain.
  4. NOMAD x Marrakesh Intense Eyeshadow (in Desert Sands) by Nomad Cosmetics – I honestly wasn’t expecting from this product, because I’ve had terrible luck with glittery eyeshadows in the past. I kept an open mind though and was pleasantly impressed. The color is more on the gold side and the eyeshadow has a great color-payoff.
  5. Argan Oil Extra Deep Hair Care Cream by Novex – (not displayed) The Argan Oil Hair Care Cream comes in a small jar-like container with a reasonable amount of product. The smell was more too prominent for my taste and I found it didn’t do much for my hair. It claims to help with frizz and improve shine, so I’ll continue to try it out and keep you updated.
