Hello beautiful people, today I have my review on the January Ipsy glam bag I received on Monday! Ipsy is a monthly beauty bag subscription $10 a month for U.S.A residents and $16.75 Canadian residents with shipping costs.
You can check their site here:
Overall I am super happy with the products I received and am going to get some decent usage out of them, shall we?
This eco-beauty by La Fresh Group is a highly natural, biodegradable, cruelty free moisturizer created in California. Using collagen-producing peptides, super-hydrating hyaluronic acid, cucumber, aloe, vitamin B, C & E and an anti-aging botanical complex including maqui berry, licorice root, ginko biloba leaf, grape seed & hickory bark to help bring back fresher happier skin, helping with fine wrinkles on your face!
I’ve actually only tried this on my hands incase my skin reacts to it and it seems to be fine so I am bring it to Mexico with me! Being a biodregradable formula making it safer for the ocean (and my skin!) being cruelty free and highly natural are total bonuses! All around I think i’ll be repurchasing this depending how it works throughout my trip.
This eco-beauty moisturizer retails for $40 and can be found here:
Next I received this Pacifica eyeshadow in the shade “Ethereal”. It isn’t very pigmented which is a bummer because it is quite pretty. A fellow blogger did mention using a setting spray on her brush helped strengthen the pigment. ( I don’t have a setting spray at the moment though!)
Looking at the website i’m assuming this is a sample size. One shade from one of the palette’s they have here:
Next eyeshadow I have is this loose powder by bellapierre cosmetics in the shade “Whesek” <– haha nooo idea how that is suppose to be promounced. This eyeshadow blends really nicely and leaves an iridescent finish. If i counted properly there is 56 shades which is craazaaay.This product retails for $14.99 and this is a full product. You can find it here: http://www.bellapierrecosmetics.ca/shop/index.php/mineral-makeup/eyes/shimmer-powders-1.html
Next I have this lip conditioning treating which is smposively “lip enhancing” by Jouer.
I was excited to pull this out of my ipsy bag because I have seen other bloggers rave about it, however. . I was highly disappointed when it was just a thick, perfumey super glossy formula that my hair was seemingly interested in being friends with, ending up dragging the stickiness across my face which was a no-no.
This is a half sample sized product. Full product retails for $16.00 You can find it here:
Last was this All Over Brush by Elizabeth Mott, i’m excited to have a cute brush in my collection! I’m sure i’ll get some great use out of this. Seems well made and very soft ^.^
This product is full size and retails for $9.99 and can be found here:
The two full products I received in this bag total up to $24.00. Ontop of that I got three great samples and a cute makeup bag ^.^ I say well worth it! What did you get in your Ipsy bag this month?

My first product is this Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser by Nourish Organic. I haven’t used this yet because at first I was simply confused wether it was a moisturizing cream or if it was a face cleanser. However my friends, yes, THIS PRODUCT IS BOTH. This is a sample size, the full size is $13.00
MOISTURIZING ORGANIC FACE CLEANSER
WITH CUCUMBER + WATERCRESS
- Fragrance-free formula cleanses without drying or irritating
- Penetrates deep into pores to dissolve dirt, oil and makeup
- Packed with vitamins and antioxidants to nourish skin
This gentle cleanser washes away impurities without drying, irritating or causing redness. Cucumber hydrates and soothes. Watercress, rich in antioxidants, helps protect skin from free radical damage. Fragrance-Free. Alcohol-Free. Gluten-Free. Vegan.
My next product is this “Luxury Hand Cream” by Mitchell and Peach. Made in England! I’ve never tried any of their products until this hand cream. It leaves your hands velvety smooth and the scent is quite delightful. This is a sample size, the full product costs £17 which would be like.. $22.?
“This easily absorbed hand cream contains Vitamin E, shea butter and English honey to soften, nourish and protect the skin.”
Next I have this Art Touch Tinted Lip Gloss in the shade 08 Love Affair. This is a really deep burgundy/maroon colour, I tried this lip gloss out and I would recommend wearing overtop of a colour lip. It doesn’t layer very well so you need to have a base colour on your lips so they don’t appear streaky. This is a full size product at the price of $19 (this product alone pays for the entire bag itself and $3 left over in Canada)
Next is this Natural Eye Pencil by Pacifica in the shade “Gun Metal” (how fitting). The pigment of this eye pencil is really nice and bold. This is a sample size, full product costs $11.

Last in my bag I have this duo brush by CROWN Brush | C476 Crease/Shadow | It’s very soft and i’m sure i’ll get some good use out of this! New brushes are always welcome ❤ This is a full size product, I can’t find this specific brush on the website at the moment but I imagine it would be a similar price to these ones, $9.99.
