Continuing on with all the first unboxings of 2015, today I’ve got an Ipsy Glam Bag for you. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying trying out all the different things that Ipsy has been sending me, so I was definitely excited to see what they chose for the first Glam Bag of the year. Roll the video!
Not too shabby, am I right? Time for the breakdown:
Liquid Eyeliner in “Jet” by Coastal Scents: As mentioned in the video I’m a bit terrified to try out this product because I’m so very bad at applying eyeliner, but I’ll definitely be testing it out sometime in the future because it looks awesome. This is a full-sized product that usually goes for about $3.
Exfoliating Honey Peel-Off Mask by Hey Honey: I haven’t had a chance to try out this mask yet, but it smells awesome, so I’m planning to use it after a hard day of work. I’ve got high hopes. Normally this mask comes in a 50 ml bottle for $35, which makes my 10 ml sample worth about $3.50
Foundation Primer by Laura Mercier: I’ve tried this primer a handful of times so far, but I’m not yet really sure how I feel about it so I can’t give a good review yet. All I know for sure is that a small blob goes a pretty long way, and it smooths into the skin pretty nicely. This line of primers come in 1.7 oz bottles at a cost of about $45, so that makes my 0.5 oz sample worth $13…not bad.
Mojito Lip Balm by (Malin+Goetz): This little lip balm is pretty delicious, and I can see me using it up pretty quickly. It’s got a lovely smell and is plenty hydrating. It’s also a full-sized product that goes for $12!
Natural Mineral Coconut Eyeshadow by Pacifica: Last but not least we have this lovely shimery eyeshadow by Pacifica, which is actually very similar to my skin color, but still gives my lids a healthy glow. Unfortunately I couldn’t find this particular shadow on the Pacifica website (what’s up with that?) so I’m estimating the price based on other shadows and saying that it has a value of about $4.
Total approximate value of bag: $35.50
Total cost to me: $15
So, as usual, the bag is worth over twice what I paid for it, which is really a pretty damn good deal. This month’s bag had three full-sized items and another item that is apparently quite high-quality, so I really can’t complain about anything. Whereas previous bags have all had at least one item that I ended up not liking, so far I’m pretty happy with everything in this bag. But then, I haven’t built up the courage to try the liquid eyeliner yet, so I’ll have to get back to you on that one. ^_~
