It took quite a while to arrive this month, but my February 2015 ipsy My Glam Bag is here!

If you aren’t familiar, ipsy is $10/month and sends its members a beautiful Glam Bag with 4-6 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Their bags always have an incredible value (well over the $10 cost) and I am always amazed at how they do it.

The Bag

ipsy ships via DHL Global Mail.  Sometimes I receive my package in days and other months (like this one) it takes well over a week.  You just never know.

The colors this month were fantastic!  Lots of pinks for Valentine’s Day in here.

The Information Card

The February 2015 ipsy theme was #ipsylove and included the following items:

~China Glaze Nail Lacquer (Marry A Millionaire) ($7.50): Ohh, I liked this well enough in the picture, but in real life it is even better.  I thought it was going to be just a blue glitter, but it has specks of green and purple in it as well.  It’s absolutely gorgeous.

~City Color Cosmetics Creamy Lip Stain (Flirtini) ($4.99): Considering that this is only $4.99, it’s not a bad lip gloss.  It’s not fantastic either, but it’ll work.  And I won’t feel awful if I end up losing it.

~GLAMGLOW BRIGHTMUD® Eye Treatment ($11.50): LOVE!  I love all things GlamGlow and was thrilled to get these.  Beyond thrilled.  I don’t want to pay full price for them (you can often find them at TJ Maxx though) so getting them included in a subscription is perfect.

~Luxie Beauty Large Angled Face Brush 504 ($6.40): I am debating on keeping this or giving it to a friend.  It’s a cool brush but I am not sure that I need an angled brush.

~ModelCo BLUSH Cheek Powder (Peach Bellini) ($22 $11): This color is gorgeous and I love that this is full-sized.  I don’t know if everyone got the same shade, but I am happy with the peach. ETA: I thought this was full-sized since it’s so big, but it turns out it’s a mini size (a HUGE mini-size)!  Thank you for the heads up Natalie!

All totaled I came up with a value of $52.39 $41.39 for the February 2015 ipsy bag. I love the bag I received this month and in the Birchbox vs. ipsy battle for February, ipsy wins.  It was a great month for me for ipsy (even though the bag took forever to get here).

    I got the lip stain, brush, and blush you got – loved those three! I also got the Joya No.1 perfume and the Mitchell and Peach face oil. The perfume is very nice! Not overpowering at all!

    I’m actually surprised to see Glam Glow in an ipsy bag! I feel like contents in most bags are such a hit or a miss, but this bag came with a nice array of products I would actually want and use!

    Are you sure the blush is full size? I’m pretty sure it’s a sample size…. I have another one from that brand that is HUGE compared to this one. They are way pigmented and even the smaller one will last FOREVER!!!

    1. Jennifer

      Oh gosh, I don’t know? I just assumed it was full sized since it’s so big! I will go match up sizes!

    How do I get off the wait list? I don’t understand!

    1. Jennifer

      Like I said, just send their customer service an e-mail asking to get taken off the waitlist. They will!

    I got the same exact bag as you, but I only got one GlamGlow sample. :-/ Did you get an extra or something or is it really supposed to be for two samples?

    1. Jennifer

      It shows two GlamGlow samples in the picture on my ipsy account, so I think it should be two! E-mail them for sure.

    Hello! I got the blush, the City Color Flirtini stain, the Emite eye lash curler, eva-nyc up all night volumizing spray, the peach and mitchell face oil, and blush (pink). I was quite happy (this is my second month)!
