Ipsy Glam Bag - December 2017 | Frankly Kiersten Reviews


What is ipsy?: ipsy is a monthly subscription that sends 4-5 beauty/makeup products plus a different makeup bag each month. They also have a referral program where you earn points. Be sure to use your points within a year of earning them, though, because they do expire. 

How Much is ipsy?: ipsy is only $10 per month shipped to the United States or $10 plus shipping ($4.95) to Canada. 

There is now a Glam Bag Plus for $25/month. I get that bag (box) in addition my regular one now. My second, regular ipsy is with the profile slightly different to get a variety of products.

Yay for a brush!



I loved this bag. The colors, the design, it's so pretty. If it were slightly bigger, it would have become my makeup bag I carry daily.


Theme card.


Smashbox Cosmetics Be Legendary Lipstick (Legendary) ($16.80) - Oh lord no. I'm so tired of super red lipsticks. Like, I get that they're a classic, but they've become the black eyeliner of 2017/2018. It's a pretty shade and a nice formula, but not for me.

tréStique Mini Brow Pencil (Americano) ($17.14) - I love getting new brow products because I really struggle with finding ones that work for both my style of doing my brows and the weird shade of my hair/brow hairs. This was okay but not the best match, it was a little light and a little warm. It worked this past Summer but I can't use it in the Fall/Winter.


Feel Brilliant Bamboo Charcoal Facial Sheet Mask ($17.50) - When receiving this bag, I didn't do a lot of charcoal masks as I've found they dried my skin out. I did pass this along solely due to this.

slMissGlam L36 Tapered Highlight Brush ($13.00?) - I guessed on this value from a book set as this isn't available for sale individually. I really like this brush and it's one of my most used brushes overall. It picks up product well and distributes it nicely, it's basically the perfect highlight brush for loose highlights.

NYX Cosmetics Faux Blacks Eyeliner (Blackberry) ($8.00) - YAY. Finally, a not black eyeliner. This ended up staying in my cup because it's so different from what we normally receive. I like the color and the formula!


Swatches top to bottom: Smashbox, tréStique, NYX Cosmetics. 


This box was valued at $72.44 AND was one of my favorite bags of the year (mostly because of the brush being such a hit, but still). Looking at each item, it seems like this bag was a bit of a miss considering my profile, but the brush definitely saved it.

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
