March ipsy MyGlam Bag

After having a bit of a subscription box drought at the beginning of the week, things have certainly heated up around here. I got Julep yesterday and I got ipsy, the Pink Fancy Box, Graze and Lip Factory today. I LOVE IT!!

The March ipsy theme is “The Great Escape” and I think that’s a perfect little theme for Spring. I hadn’t looked at any of the spoilers for this month’s ipsy, so everything in the bag was a total surprise.

The Discount Card

As usual, there was no information card in the ipsy bag. I do wish they at least included the full names and prices of the products, but no dice.  I actually got my bag so early this month that none of the products are even up in my account online!

Here’s what was inside:
~Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist ($3.26): I like Juice Beauty’s line so I am looking forward to trying this spray which is suppose to “tone and hydrate). I only wish I was trying it on a beach during Spring Break. You can’t have it all though.

~yaby cosmetics eye shadow (so vein and sand dune) ($6.30 total – $3.15/each): I actually like both of these colors, but wish that it came with a container to hold them. How does one store something like this without ruining it? Do tell. Regardless these are cute and fun and not eyeliner and I’ll figure it out.

~GlamRX Touch Up Mirror ($5): WAIT, My questions about the storage of those eye shadows has been answered. This little mirror kit has a magnetic opening that holds the shadows perfect. I held it upside-down, shook it around and you know what, the shadow pots stayed put!! It dawned on me as I was writing my review to try it and boom it worked. I can’t find this exact little mirror online, so I guessed at the price.

They stay in there, I swear.

~La Fresh Travel Lite Make-Up Remover Wipes ($1.99): I am super excited about these because you know what, sometimes when you are on vacation, you just don’t have time take your make-up off, wash your face perfectly, etc. I hope I love these because they seem right up my alley!

~ipsy Anchor Bag ($3): This is one of my most favorite ipsy bags ever. Not only is it adorable, it looks to be well made and fits the theme perfect. I gotta tell you, I was excited excited when I pulled this out of the ipsy envelope and I am never really that excited about their bags.

All totaled (by my calculations anyway), the March ipsy MyGlam bag is worth $19.55. Way more than the $10/month cost, but not nearly what some of the other months have been worth.  However, I am pleased with it.  Very pleased with it actually!!  No black eyeliner or plain bags makes me happy!

    Besides that mirror, you can invest in a palette to store the eye shadows. I recommend Z palettes if you have many tins of eye shadow, blush, or bronzer .. it is actually a much simpler and more organized way to keep them all in one place

    Wow you got that fast! I hope I get mine tomorrow! That is a really cute bag! I’m glad we finally get some place to put all those eye shadows. I hope I like the hydrating mist but I haven’t really liked Juice Beauty in the past. My face smelled like fruit loops and I wasn’t a fan. But I always love to have makeup remover wipes.

    I see you do these posts every month and I’m just starting to try the monthly boxes. Do you have a favorite? I’m curious for new ones to try.

    Ooh! I would use everything in this Ipsy bag! I’m STILL on the waiting list :/

    I can’t wait for my ipsy bag! Any chance you have an extra Graze code?

    I dont know what I would do with a new makeup bag every month [other than put them into a closet to use as part of gifts for people!] but THAT one? I would definitely use. Its so cute!

    Yep they have a waiting list….I’ve been waiting over a month already. From looking at the Ipsy Facebook page, it sound like about average right now is 6-8 weeks…. I’m getting anxious!
