How did I like my IPSY Glam Bag? I’m going to give you my straight up, honest feedback! Ready?
My first item was clear “Brow Gel“. It was a small size. I don’t use brow gel (sad face).
I was totally impressed with the full size bottle of the nail polish. This was a frosted pink color. I don’t like light colors (sad face). I guess I need to change my profile! (Thumbs up, because it was full sized)
The concealer was extremely small, the size of a dime. Nevertheless, I tried it out and really liked it alot. I noticed that it blended well, didn’t flake, and was moist as you cover under the eyes. The color “buff” was a perfect pick! (Thumbs up)
Now, the lipstick was great, too. When I first looked at it I was disappointed. It looked “clear”. Yet, when I put it on it has a nice shine, is very, very moist and has a pearlish tint. (Unfortunately, it was shipped damaged – read the “Note” below.) (Thumbs up)
Finally, the “roll on” perfume ,”Island Vanilla” – it sounds wonderful. I was so excited that I immediately rolled it on my wrist. Oh boy! YUCK! I couldn’t stand it!! It was a strong vanilla base with undescribable spices. To make matters worse, it was very strong. (And, I love perfumes.) Now, just imagine me washing my wrist 1,000 times and I couldn’t get rid of the scent. Are you laughing? My kids were! (Thumbs down)
My overall impression: Good I have since filled out a new profile and eliminated the perfumes, and hopefully change up the colors. I did like the quality of the products overall.
Note: My lipstick was shipped damaged. I contacted IPSY customer service and was very pleasant surprised! Not only do they back up their products – they stated that they would shipping out another lipstick. EXCELLENT customer service!
Summary: Good Value I spent $10, including shipping. I received $52.70 in products (sample and full sized). Personally, I think it is “hit or miss” whether you will like some or all of your “Glam Bag”. I did have fun, and will be giving it another try!

A little information about IPSY: IPSY is a monthly subscription service, that customizes your cosmetic items based on the fun and quick questionaire that you are requested to fill out. (I like the fact that you can re-take this questionaire each month to change up the type of “Glam Bag” products and colors.)
Each “Glam Bag” is custom designed by IPSY and inside you’re surprised with approximately 4 – 6 costmetic items specifically for you. Some items are full-sized and some are sample sized.
From reading their web-site you can receive anything from lipsticks to nail polishes to perfumes and make-up tools.
IPSY starts the process with having you take the Beauty Quiz when you sign up as a member. By changing your answers in the Beauty Quiz, it will influence the products you receive in your Glam Bags (e.g., different products or colors). The monthly subscription is $10.00 which includes shipping and tracking information, plus you can cancel at any time.
