Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription where each month you receive a Glam Bag with around five samples focusing on makeup and sometimes nails or skin care. The cost is only $110 per year with occasional savings options, and you can purchase full sized items from your bag on your Ipsy account for a discount.
In this month’s bag:
- MintPear Collagen Serum -value around $23
- Elizabeth Mott Blending Brush – value $15
- Marc Anthony True Professional Deep Repair Aloe Vera & Jasmine Oil Deep Repairing Conditioning Treatment – value $2.99
- theBalm Cosmetics Bahama Mama – value $10?
- Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow in Marisa -value $10
Total value around $61.
I’m not sure about the Bahama Mama bronzer full size, so I guessed.
I like the MintPear Collagen Serum since I generally like marine collagen products. As always, I find them overpriced. The blending brush is nothing special, but the quality is OK. The Marc Anthony conditioning treatment is decent. I have used it before and it is nice after a day in the sun. I can’t say much about theBalm Cosmetics Bahama Mama since I am not really a bronzer person. Contouring looks great in photos, but not in real life. The Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow in Marisa is a nice neutral shadow. It has a nice summery look. All in all, I am a little ‘meh’ about this bag.

Let’s check out BB5!
The March Beauty Box 5 is here! (Affiliate links)
Beauty box 5 is a beauty subscription box with 4-6 sample size (and sometimes full sized) beauty products like makeup and toiletries.
It is $12 a month by the month, $10 a month with a 3-month subscription, or $8.25 a month with an annual subscription. Sometimes the value of the box can be six times what I pay for a subscription!
In March’s box:
Prestige cosmetics True Metals eyeshadow -value $9.75
Bellapierre cosmetics cosmetic glitter – value $15
Manna Kadar lash primer – value $10?
Sweep lash helper – value $9.99
Sweep Lashes – value $15 (set of five)
Total value around $59.75.
This box had four full size items, which in theory makes it awesome. Unfortunately for me, the item I am most excited about is the sample size! haha.
The Prestige cosmetics True Metals eyeshadow I received is the copper color. Normally, I would not choose this color, but I have to admit the copper looks nice with green eyes. The Bellapierre glitter is fun because……glitter. I am most excited about the Manna Kadar lash primer. my lashes get so dry from mascara, so i have been wanting to try something like this out. It does seem to help a bit and make lashes a bit thicker. I cannot compare it to anything else, since I haven’t tried another. The SWEEP falsies stuff is a waste for me. I luckily have big lashes already hitting my glasses and will likely never wear falsies. If the tool and lashes had come with the glue, I might have tried it for fun, but they did not.
False eyelash stuff is always a bust for me, much like most contouring items. I am all lashes and angular edges already and it is not always all it is cracked up to be. I am still stoked for the shadow and lash primer though.
