Ipsy January 2014 Glam Bag Review

Published January 18, 2014 by lonerchicklexie


So the other day I got my January glam bag from Ipsy. I always peek because I am impatient, so I already knew it was nothing to get excited about.


I received:

Nourish Organic Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion in Argan +Rosewater (This product is 100% Natural USDA-Certified Organic)

Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow Creamy Eye Pencil in Pearl

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep conditioning mask

Proactiv Mark Fading Pads (4)

Mica Beauty Cosmetics tinted lip balm in #6 Fiesta


The bag it came smells like cheap plastic. It reminds me of swim toys but the smell is worse. I hope the smell fades with time because I would like to keep the bag since it is more practical than the last two bags I received from Ipsy, although I do like them.


I do plan to try all the products since I have them. I’m not sure when I will try the hair mask since I have a weave in right now. I do not care for Proactiv as a brand. I don’t think it is anything special and I am sick of their commercials. I will try the fading pads but I doubt I can really judge them with only 4 samples.


When I looked at my glam room I was not impressed. I really wanted a sample of Benefits Porefessionals. But I hear that sample was very small. Although this is not my favorite bag I will work with what I got. And it was only 10 bucks!

  • I wasn’t thrilled either. It was my first ipsy glam bag and I almost decided to cancel. It seemed to be an unusual not great bag though. So, I decided to give it a bit more time. I’m not keeping the bag or the hair spray leave in conditioner I got. I can’t stand the smell of the bag and I’m allergic to wheat which is in the spray. I tried the lotion (the same one you got) but it isn’t strong enough for my super dry skin. I do like the Mica lip balm. It sucks as a lip balm but it makes a great blush for my skin (powder blushes are way to dry for me). I got another moisturizer thing (revolution something or other) that I haven’t tried. I got the Elizabeth Mott Penny pencil. I like it but its a tiny sample and I have another pencil that is a similar color. I hope the next bag is better….
