Ipsy — April 2017 Glam Bag “Sideshow”

My Ipsy bag arrived on Thursday, and I’m quite happy with it this month because—drumroll, maestro!—I got another nail polish! It’s actually a duo, so I kind of got two in one.

Ipsy fivezero's Glam Bag "Carpe P.M." December 2016

Ipsy — December 2016 Glam Bag “Carpe P.M.”

I was going to moan about yet another nail polish-less Ipsy Glam Bag (referral link), but it turns out that there weren’t even any nail polishes distributed by Ipsy this month!

A few of things I did notice that Ipsy have recently changed:

  1. They updated the Profile Quiz, so retake it if you’re a subscriber! They’ve added some more detail.
  2. You can’t seem to review individual items in your Glam Bag, anymore—just the bag as a whole. I hope this isn’t really the case, as I’m not sure how they will be able to tailor your the Glam Bags as well. (How else will I complain about getting endless black eyeliners and haircare products?!) They giveth with the Profile Quiz, and taketh away with the product ratings…
  3. You have four months to finish reviewing items from previous Glam Bags.

This month’s bag is pretty decent, nevertheless! I did get an email from Ipsy last month asking me to choose one of the items I would receive, which was cool. The options given were:

  • Ciaté Liquid Velvet Matte Lipstick in Pin Up
  • City Color Be Matte Blush Trio
  • Hanalei Lip Treatment
  • NYX Prismatic Shadow in Bedroom Eyes
  • NYX Prismatic Shadow in Jaded
  • OUAI Wave Spray
  • tarte Deluxe Maracuja Oil

I almost picked the tarte Maracuja Oil, as I’ve been wanting to try it for a while, now, but in the end I’m a sucker for nail and lip stuff, so I went with the Ciaté lipstick.

Turns out I received the Ciaté lipstick, plus the tarte Maracuja Oil, plus the Hanalei Lip Treatment. Score!

What I Received

  • Ciaté Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slick in Pin Up (2 mL mini; 6.5 mL full size US$19)
  • Hanalei Lip Treatment (5 mL mini; 15 mL full size US$20)
  • OFRA Eyeshadow/Highlighter in Bliss (4 g full size pan; pan in compact US$15)
  • Royal & Langnickel MODA Angle Shader Brush (full size, comes in a six-brush set USD$19.99)
  • tarte Maracuja Oil (7 mL deluxe sample; 15 mL travel size US$15/CA$19, 50 mL full size US$48/CA$60)
  • Ipsy makeup bag
