This glam bag was definitely better than last month’s bag, which I’m happy about. There was some small disappointment with shade selections though, which Ipsy is notorious for. I will get into that in a bit.
I’m not a big fan of this bag, although it has grown on me a little bit. I just feel like the last couple bags have been pretty boring, like not much thought or planning went into the design. I do like the quote on the inside of the bag though.

ColourPop: Ultra Glossy Lip in shade Ipsy VIP
While I absolutely love ColourPop’s creamy highlighters, I was not impressed with their matte lip creams that I’ve tried. So when I received this Ultra Glossy Lip in my bag, I wasn’t sure what to think. I do think it’s better than their matte lip creams, but it’s still not one of my most favorite items. The shade is wonderful, and it’s slightly creamy and not too sticky, which is good. I think my main issue is that I just hardly ever wear glosses anymore.
Tarte: Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara
This is the second month in a row that Ipsy sent me a mascara, so I wasn’t too thrilled about it. I do like the Tarte brand though, but I am not overly impressed with this mascara. It does not seem to make my lashes look as long or as thick as certain other mascara’s I’ve used. (In case you’re wondering, my current favorite mascara is Smashbox X-Rated).
Z Skin: Acne Spot Treatment
I love the fact that this is all natural. It features ingredients such as almond, tea tree, and witch hazel. I’ve used this on some of my blemishes, and they were completely dried up over night.
SKINFOOD: Egg White Perfect Pore Cleanser
I was excited to get this in my bag because I’ve heard of Skinfood and was wanting to try some of their products. This cleanser is just okay though. It removes makeup pretty well, but it doesn’t have the greatest smell. It’s not a bad smell either, it just smells really soapy. It’s also supposed to help minimize pores, but I haven’t noticed a difference in mine, and I’ve been using it for a week now.
Pixi by Petra: Blush in shade Beach Rose
I really like this brand. I got one of their lipsticks in my bag quite a while ago, and it’s one of my favorites. Though I wasn’t super excited to get this blush because it’s practically identical to one I already own. However, it is a pretty nice product. It blends really well on the skin for a flawless finish.
