What's In My January Ipsy Glam Bag + Glam Bag Ultimate

Hey everyone! As you are probably aware by now, I have an obsession with Ipsy. I love sharing what I get in my monthly glam bags, and I love trying out new beauty products! This month’s post is going to be a little different! If you couldn’t already tell from the title, I am trying out the glam bag ultimate for a few months! Since I received so many products this month, I will not be reviewing every single one of them today. I will most likely update this post as I try out all of the products because it can take time to see if certain products work well for me!

For this month, Ipsy wanted its members to start the year off with a clean slate. I love that the theme is all about a fresh start (and fresh beauty products) for the New Year! This glam bag might be my favorite one I have received so far! I absolutely love the marble print with the pink detail. I rated my overall bag 4/5 stars! There was really only one product I felt that I didn’t need, but for the most part I love the products!

Inside the glam bag:

  • Bellapierre Cosmetics: Mineral Lipstick in Envy

I absolutely love this lipstick. It is a beautiful shade that is perfect for any day or occasion! I rated this product a 5/5 stars!

  • Morphe: Fluidity Full-Coverage Concealer in 1.55

I was thrilled to receive this concealer because Morphe is a very well-known and loved brand. The concealer is just a tiny bit light for me, but it should be ok for this time of year! When I first used this, I found it a bit difficult to blend. Once I got it blended, it seemed to cover my spots and my under eyes beautifully. I rated this product a 4/5 stars.

  • Nomad Cosmetics: NOMAD x Marrakesh Medina Intense Eyeshadow in Desert Sands (my pick)

This is the product that I chose for this month. I love receiving eyeshadows, and although I love the color, it is a bit more orange toned than I thought it would be. It is very pigmented as well. I rated this product a 4/5 stars.

  • H2O+: Oasis Ultra Hydrating Cream

To be honest, I really haven’t had too much time to try this product out. I have used it a few times, and it seems to work well for my skin!

  • Cela: Seed to Skin Scrub Natural Grain Polish

I have never really tried many body scrubs, but it is safe to say I am in love! I used this product to exfoliate my legs and my legs were so smooth afterward! This scrub has a sweet smell to it, and hopefully I will be getting more body scrubs from Ipsy in the future!

If you are unaware of what the glam bag ultimate is, it is a new bag that Ipsy has created! Members can pay $50 a month to receive 8 full-sized products, and 4 deluxe samples at a $250 value! If I did my math correctly, the total of my bag comes out to about $300 which is insane! You can also choose 1 product each month just like you would for the glam bag and the glam bag plus!

For my glam bag ultimate, I rated it a 3/5 stars. I do update my beauty preferences often, but I felt that I received a few skin care/facial products that I did not necessarily want or need such as the face masks (I prefer wash-off masks, but I don’t use them too often).

Inside the glam bag ultimate:

  • Tarte: Tarteist™ Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in Front Row (my pick)

This color is perfect for the fall/winter time! I love trying out liquid lipsticks, and this one did not disappoint! It is very long-lasting. I rated this product a 4/5 stars.

  • This Works: Deep Sleep Pillow Spray

I haven’t had too much time to try out this product, but I have used it two or three times already. I don’t really have trouble falling to sleep at night, so I am not too sure if this product works or not. It does have a very natural scent (it is made with lavender, and it is made with chamomile and vetiver) which is relaxing. I simply spray this a couple times over my bed and fall asleep.

  • Thann: Eden Breeze Body Butter

I did not necessarily need another lotion, but I have been enjoying this one. I like the smell, and I like to apply this after I shower at night. I rated this product a 4/5 stars.

  • F.A.R.A.H Brushes: 160F Face Brush

I did not need another makeup brush, but I like that the brush matched the glam bag with the pink and marble print.

  • Pretty Woman: Nail Polish in Don’t Be Jelly

I really do not care to receive nail polishes very often because I prefer to get my nails done at a salon. I actually received a color very similar to this one in my April 2019 glam bag, so I will be giving this nail polish to my sister.

  • TheBalm Cosmetics: What’s The Tea® Ice Tea Eyeshadow Palette

I was SO excited to receive this! I was not expecting to receive a full sized eyeshadow palette! I’ve heard great things about TheBalm Cosmetics, and this is the first product that I tried from them! The palette is adorable, and the colors are stunning. I love that the names all relate to gossip! I plan on using this palette for an upcoming makeup tutorial, so be on the lookout for that! 😉 I rated this product a 5/5 stars!

  • Sweet Chef: Beet + Vitamin A Serum Shot

This was my first time trying out a serum. I am always nervous about trying new skincare products because I have acne prone skin. I tried out this product, and I don’t think I have been using it long enough to say whether or not it is working well for me. It hasn’t caused any breakouts and it does make my skin feel supple and hydrated, so I am going to continue using it!

  • Flesh: Touch Flesh Highlighter Balm in Pinky

I have never tried a cream highlighter before, so I was excited to see what this one was like! It is a beautiful rose gold shade, and I found that it was easy to blend. I just applied this above my cheekbones, and I love the glow that it gives me. I rated this product a 5/5 stars!

  • Essenherb: Tea Tree 90 Toner Pad

I have not had the time to use this just yet!

  • Ahava: Essential Day Moisturizer

I have been using this moisturizer since the day I got it, and I have been enjoying it a lot. I like trying out different skin care products and I mostly use this product at night after I shower. The best way I could describe the smell of this product is clean/fresh. I find that my skin feels softer in the mornings, and I am trying to get into the habit of moisturizing more often, especially during the colder months. I rated this product a 5/5 stars.

  • Hey Honey: Take Away The Drama Youth Boosting Honey & Copper Peel Off Mask

I have not had the time to use this just yet!

  • Avette: Daily Fresh Squeeze Sheet Mask Duo in Grape and Lycheee

I have not had the time to use this just yet!

Thank you all so much for reading! Getting my glam bags in the mail can always put a smile on my face, and I am always looking forward to receiving them. For the next couple of months, I plan to continue sharing the products that come in my glam bag ultimates!
