Ipsy "Jetsetter" Glam Bag May 2015

Ipsy “Jetsetter” Glam Bag May 2015

Ipsy’s Glam Bag is a beauty subscription service that sends out 5-6 deluxe samples or full sized products every month in a cute makeup bag for $10. Bags are customizable based on your beauty preferences and ratings of past samples. You can check out my past Ipsy reviews here or subscribe to Ipsy here! They do have a waitlist but every now and then they have a skip the waitlist thing where it takes just a few easy steps to skip the queue and start getting your bag.

May’s “Jetsetter” Ipsy Glam Bag arrived while I was on vacation back East which is a shame because it was perfectly themed for a trip! I absolutely adore the makeup bag this month! I’m usually less than excited by the bags themselves and have a pile to destash but this one’s going to stay in my collection I think… Now on to the products!

Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream – I’ve sampled Alterna products through other services before but I think this is the first I’ve gotten them in Ipsy. I’ve loved the others I’ve tried so I brought this one to Comic Con with me last week to use as a leave in conditioner and really liked it! My hair is pretty thirsty at the moment and needs all the help it can get! The full size is 2.5 oz and retails for $25.00 so this 0.85 oz sample is worth about $8.50. I’ve got a few other leave in products to use up first but I’ll definitely be picking up the full size of this soon.

This multi-tasking miracle product provides 10 benefits in 1, simplifying your styling routine. Infused Caviar Extract & Vitamin C to smooth, add shine and help protect from free radical damage. Leaves your hair with moisture, shine, smoothness, softness, UV protection, manageability, strength, anti-breakage, heat protection, and a light hold. Can be used alone or as a foundation for the layering of other styling products.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil in Ozone + BONUS Revolution High-Color Lipgloss – Everyone knows I’m a die hard UD fangirl so I was thrilled to be getting this! I love their lip pencils and have been wanting to grab Ozone and this one is perfectly purse sized for on the go. I’ve got a couple samples of this lipgloss already so I’m less excited about it but I’ll definitely get around to using it eventually! The full size pencil is $20 for 0.04 oz and the full size gloss is $22 for 0.17 fl oz so this duo is worth around $21.47.

Get primed and ready for action. Urban Decay’s long-lasting, waterproof liner glides on smoothly to prime AND define—for long-lasting lip color and clean lines. Smooch. Pout. Smack. Nibble. Lick. 24/7 stays put through everything (yes, EVERYTHING) you do. When you use this liner to fill in your lips completely, it primes them for lipstick or gloss, grabbing on to color to help it last.

Next, finish the bad girl beautiful look with a sample of Urban Decay’s brand new Revolution High-Color Lipgloss—insanely intense color with high shine. The high-coverage, ultra-pigmented formula lays down all the color you crave in one coat.

This lippie is also laced with Hilurlip™, which defines and hydrates lips while making them look plumper and fuller.

BelláPierre Cosmetics Waterproof Mineral Gel Eyeliner Pencil – Another black eyeliner. Straight into the swap pile it goes! I’m also updating my beauty preferences quiz to remove eyeliner from my list as I’m just so darn tired of getting it. This is full size and worth $14.99

This super creamy mineral gel eyeliner formula provides effortlessly smooth application and intense pigment for amazing coverage and all day wear. Plus it’s waterproof so you’ll definitely be smudge-free!

Peter Lamas Detoxifying Citrus C Facial Cleanser – I’m always down to try a new cleanser! I brought this with me to Comic Con (seriously, samples like this are perfect for traveling!) and used it the whole week. It did a great job cleansing but my skin felt a little dry after using it but that could have just been the dry and over air-conditioned hotel air. Will keep using it now that I’m home and see how it goes! The full size is $24 for 4 oz so this 1.0 oz sample is worth about $6.

This Detoxifying Citrus C Facial Cleanser invigorates skin with a potent fusion of natural ingredients. A purifying blend of Chamomile, Coconut and Alba Bark combine to create a rich lather that locks-in moisture while Wheat Protein smoothes and strengthens skin. Vitamin C and Beta Carotene work to detoxify, protect and energize, giving you softer, younger-looking skin. 100% Vegan. Paraben-free. Sulfate-free.

Pixi by Petra Beauty Bronzer – I’m way too pale for this bronzer (it’s going to turn me orange I can just tell) so I’m probably going to gift this to my sister. That being said it’s probably a gorgeous color for most people and I’ve heard good things about Pixi’s products! It looks like the full size is 0.36 oz for $18 and includes a kabuki brush so this 0.16 oz sample without the brush I’ll estimate at about $6.50.

This deluxe bronzing powder gives your complexion the warmth and luminosity of naturally sun-kissed skin. Hydrating, silky-smooth & long-wearing, it also contains Vitamin E to protect skin against free radicals.

I think this bag was pretty well curated based on the theme and my beauty quiz preferences at the time… hopefully no more black eyeliner going forward though! The bag itself was super cute and the product value was pretty darn good at about $57.46. Definitely happy with this month!
