ipsy Glam Bag - February 2018 | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

Some of the links below are referral links, this means I get points from ipsy if you subscribe using my link. Find out more info here.

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.

A mini palette and a brush, woah!



This bag was so perfect for Valentine's Day/February. I like it but like with most Ipsy bags, it's just too small for my liking.


Bang Beauty Blush (Smoked Peach) ($20.00) - I never, NEVER, use blushes with a shimmer or sheen...until this blush. This is a gorgeous peach blush with a slight golden sheen but it doesn't emphasize texture/pores. This is just overall a good blush, good formula, good shade, etc., and it's become my new go-to.

Pacifica Beach Crystals Palette - This looks to be an ipsy exclusive so I can't price it. This is my go-to palette for shimmery shades and I can pack this with a neutrals palette and know that I can do a ton of different looks. I wish this had been made available for purchase because I'll be sad when I hit pan.

Luxie Blending and Shading Eye Brush (249) - Another ipsy exclusive, so no value. While this is a really good brush, I don't have a use for dual-ended brushes. Mine sit upright in beakers and dual-ended brushes always get messed up.


Biobelle Perfecting Primer Facial Mask ($9.98) - I haven't tried this as the only primer product I've used for a face look (totally because of fear) because I do have texture and pores and need a real primer to help with that. I believe I have one of these left and I'd like to try it as the only primer at some point, but not when I need to look my best.

OFRA Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick (ipsy Unzipped) ($12.50) - I couldn't link a specific shade because this is an exclusive, but all of OFRA's liquid lipsticks are the same cost. This is a nice shade but a little too pink for my taste. The formula is okay, not the best but not the worst either.


Swatches L-R: OFRA Cosmetics, Band Beauty, Pacifica Cosmetics.


This bag was valued at $42.48 and this is without two of the items having values due to being exclusives. There were some serious hits in this bag so I call it a win.

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