What’s In My January Ipsy Bag

Since I love trying out new beauty products each month, I gave in to the beauty box craze and decided to subscribe to the Glam Bag by Ipsy.

Ipsy is a monthly subscription ($10USD + $4.95 USD shipping to Canada) that provides you with a cute makeup bag and 4-5 curated beauty items whose combined value exceeds the cost of the monthly subscription. I though this would be a great treat for me this year and I like that Ipsy allows me to try out products that I’ve never heard of or have the chance to come across in my usual beauty shopping routine.

So far, I love the goodies I received this month and plan to test them out over the next few weeks and report back on my faves.

Check out this month’s Ipsy goodies from the “Metropolis” theme below.

Sally’s Box Acaiberry Mask & Loveberry Aloe Mask – $15USD ea.

These are 2 moisturizing sheet masks just in time for the cold month of January. I’ve never heard of this Korean brand (whose apparent focus is deep moisturizing), but I’m excited to see if the hyaluronic acid in these masks will work to give me a smooth, hydrated and glowy complexion. Can’t wait to scare my husband while wearing one of these on a Friday night.

Naked Cosmetics Mica Pigment in Desert Sunset #02 – $14.99USD

I loved this loose eyeshadow pigment as soon as I swatched it. Desert Sunset is a beautiful rose gold that gives a stunning shimmer to the skin. I’m curious to see how it holds up on my oilier lids throughout the day.

SLMissGlam Blend Beauty Brush L34 – $13.50USD

This eyeshadow blending brush is just the thing I was missing in my brush collection. The soft pink handle and ombre bristles make it easy to find in my brush holder and looks perfect for adding shadow to my crease or outer corners. My daughter liked it too and quickly stole it from me to (pretend) paint the walls of my house.

ModelCo Blush in “Peach Bellini” – $22USD

This is another brand I’ve never heard of, but I can’t wait to try out this blush in the warmer months. It had a great pigment when I swatched it and has a silky, almost buttery texture. Hopefully it isn’t too “peachy” for my fair skin, although I’m sure I can find someone who would love it as a gift if it doesn’t work for me.

Rimmel London Lip Conditioning Balm by Kate Moss – $5.49USD

I never knew Rimmel had a lip balm, but I was glad to get this one. I tried it last night and it went on smooth with no clumping or excess product gathering on my lips. This one’s going into my purse, for sure.

Metropolis Makeup Bag

I love little makeup bags to hold all my beauty accessories in my purses. This silver skyscraper themed bag will be a nice addition to my collection.

  • You got a pretty good bag! I have been subscribed to ipsy for the past two years and they can be hit and miss, last year was pretty good all the way though. I got the pigment too but traded it away as I know I’ll never get a use out of it.

    • I’m curious to see how it goes. Beauty lovers are such fickle creatures, so I’m sure I’ll find something else that I’ll want to try out instead!

  • Ooh this is such a great bag! The sheet masks sound good, I think I’ve seen the brand before 🙂 The eyeshadow pigment is such a beautiful color! That brush is also so pretty 🙂

    The eyeshadow pigment is gorgeous, I love rose gold shades and I hope it stays on for long. And the sheet masks sound amazing too, I am obsessed with sheet masks and I use them all the time! x


  • You got a good one! I didn’t get anything good, hehe.

  • So many pretty products. The mica pigment is gorgeous.

  • I like the selection of products, but I already have way more makeup bags than I could ever out to use!

    • Yes – I think I will be giving some to family and friends by year end, or switch to a box!

    I wish we had ipsy here in the UK, i love finding out what everyone gets each month!


  • That eyeshadow looks so pretty. I wish ipsy was available in the Uk. I’m not often a fan beauty subscriptions but this one sounds great xx


    • Hopefully I get a good variety of goodies. I know other people haven’t been as happy with their past bags.
