Subscription Satelite: Ipsy Glam Bag Plus January 2020

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! Time for a subscription!

Glam Bag Plus January 2020!

It’s the first GB Plus of the year and glad to start a new year with this subscription. It came in the same time as BoxyCharm but figured to start off with this one. This is the second tier in Ipsy where you get more high end and full size items at $25 a month and of course you get a bigger makeup bag than the standard. This month’s bag is a marble printed bag and I do love marble print like leopard and if I were to have a house this is the pattern I would have in my kitchen, marble by the way. What did I get for the first bag of the year? Let’s see!

Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit: First up is a product from Billion Dollar Brows. I did get a fan brush from this brand during a past Glam Bag and glad to get them again and this time it’s a brow kit. Looking at this I am hoping it’s not as drying as the products from Brow Bar as in the pallet thing I got in Boxy last month I felt everything was drying and had to toss it because my brows felt crunchy with the brow gel unfortunately. Even though the fan brush I did try from this brand was good and I hear the brow items are also good. Let’s see what this kit includes! Okay, this kit comes with a universal brow pencil that is also mechanical and is supposed to add shape and definition to the brows. Also get a double-ended brow duo pencil which makes the brows pop with a highlighter and concealer that supposedly lifts the brow and the brush is supposed to smudge and blend everything and the clear brow gel is supposed to set everything. This kit from what it claims is not only good for advanced people but also beginners who are getting into doing their brows. I did feel that the double-ended pencil was kind of creamy so I have to try and see how this goes since it is a full on kit of items. According to the page that mentions this item it says it values for $42. I normally just stick to NYX when it comes to my brow items and a pencil to set things in but this will be fun to try out.
Huda Beauty Ruby Obsessions Shadow Pallet: Next is another item from Huda Beauty. I have been loving this brand and when I saw that they were putting their Obsessions Pallets in again I was excited! I was hoping to get one but great thing was they were available for choice alongside something else I almost went with. As you guys know that these are nine pan pallets and I chose Ruby Obsessions which feature scarlet and raspberry shades in chrome and matte shades. I do have the pallets in Smoky and Mauve and my add on for Glam Bag is one of the other shades because it was so hard to choose out of these and I do like the red shades since I do love the Naked Heat, the Inferno pallet from Eleman, and other fiery shades. I can’t wait to try these shades out! This pallet values for $27.
Duft & Doft Pink Milk Mask Set: I was so excited for this box because I finally get another pair of sheet masks from a brand I never heard of by the way and that is Duft & Doft. This is a brand from Soul, South Korea and it’s also an award winning brand. This sheet mask set is made for winter since it is supposed to hydrate and softens the skin to cause a Dewey glow. These masks contain nyacinamides and ginseng berry and the masks fit every contour of the face. I can’t wait to try these masks out since Korean skin care is very big and this is a new brand for me to try. If you’re a convention goer like me that tends to have skin going crazy due to long volunteer hours or partying the night away, having sheet masks can help re-hydrate the skin. These masks value for $14.98.
Jules Smith Beauty Power Gloss Duo in Namaste All Day and Serene Queen: These glosses were my first choice until I saw the Huda Beauty pallets. Trust me it was tempting to choose these since I do love lip glosses especially for work. So, basically the shade Serene Queen is a pale pink gloss that takes on the color of pink quartz while Namaste All Day is a rosy nude shade that has cocoa undertones that take on the qualities of agate. Vitamins A & E help moisten lips and they take a bit of a shimmer to the lips. I can’t wait to use these since I do enjoy lip gloss. I hope they aren’t as sticky though. Let’s see what happens! These value at $32 full size. Sugar Cosmetics Wingman Eyeliner in I’ll Be Black: Final item is another eyeliner but from Sugar Cosmetics. When I first got back to Ipsy a year ago I did get an eyeliner pencil but this time it’s a liquid pen liner. This eyeliner is good for beginners who are getting into makeup especially eyeliner. This has a felt tip that has a lot of precision and doesn’t smudge. I will hold it to that since for a little while allergies have gotten to my eyes and made them watery so I was probably having some smudging with some liner even with my pen liners. I do use these for work and glad to get another in my box or bag. This values for $15.

What did I finish I bet you’re wondering? I did finish the Evalou serum due to it feeling like not enough product was coming out when I was pumping it. I know there was tons of it in the bottle but it was not coming out when I wanted to so a bit halfway I did toss it because it was ticking me off and it felt a little too dry on my skin. I know serums are supposed to be a great base for moisturizers and that is what I was using before moisturizer and underneath my makeup every day. Sorry, won’t get this again even as an add-on. I also finished the Murad AHA and BHA scrub and oh man that was amazing! I do have another tube of it all thanks to getting the big Ipsy Holiday Haul back in November before heading for RangerStop. I can see why some people like the brand on its own and that it’s great for my skin type but I don’t think I will purchase it due to the price and I already have been using more drugstore stuff since that has helped my skin a lot lately. Glad I got to try it out though!

That is it for this post! I am so excited about this year with GB Plus. So far the first month has not disappointed me at all and how great the products were. I am glad to get a brow kit and hoping this one won’t disappoint as much as the Brow Bar one did. I am also going to be using one of the lip glosses from the gloss duo starting now since I did try it out and it’s not sticky and it’s easy to glide on so will be wearing it out! I’m happy to get sheet masks again because it’s been a while since they show up in any of my boxes and glad that Ipsy finally saw that I enjoy using these especially the ones that hydrate my skin because winter is harsh here on the Florida coast so glad to try a new one out and from another Korean brand. Also, glad to add a new eyeliner to the ones I have for work and the Huda pallet again since I have enjoyed their products so far.

So, what is next? I will be talking about BoxyCharm next! Until next time!
