Subscription Satelite: Glam Bag X February 2021

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from travelling the vast nerd universe. I am back with another post!

Glam Bag X February 2021

So, Ipsy has added a new bag to their line up and that is Glam Bag X. They did away with the GB Ultimate due to how people were not liking it. Even though you got twelve items in Ultimate but four out of the twelve were deluxe size and the rest were full-size. Not only that, but I also seen people not liking what they were getting in their Ultimate every month and said it was not worth the $49.99. I am glad I didn’t go for it but I went for this one since it called out more. So, every three months your GB Plus gets upgraded to this bag and you get seven to eight full-size items and they are luxury brands for the most part. You get to choose four of them which makes more sense. It costs $55 every three months. I think this is worth it even more than Boxy Lux since I felt like the brands from that are already in my Base Box anyways. This month’s items were amazing for a start so let us see what I got this month!

Patrick Ta Monochromatic Moment Blush in She’s So Adorable: First up is a product from a brand I have heard of and was happy to get. This first bag was curated by Patrick Ta who is a celebrity makeup artist. This is the Monochrome Moment Blush from his own line and it is a golden peach blush that is supposed to give you that lit from within glow. This blush is made with plant-based moisturizers to help with that glow and this can also be doubled as an eye shadow too. I will be trying this out since it’s my first time trying out this brand! This item retails for $32.

Huda Beauty Rose Gold Remastered Shadow Pallet: Next up is a shadow pallet from Huda Beauty and it is her Rose Gold Remastered pallet! When I saw this in my bag this month, I was really excited! I heard so many people enjoy this and the original pallet and I cannot wait to try this out. This is an eighteen-shade pallet with four different finishes, which when I was getting the shade descriptions I only saw matte and metallic unless they talk about warm-toned and dark-toned as finishes. You can go neutral or bold with these shadows. I know I can make a various amount of looks with these shadows and I cannot wait to play with my brushes! This retails for $65.

Pat McGrath Fetisheyes Mascara in Carbon Black: Next up is a product from Pat McGrath. I always hear about this brand all over YouTube and the MakeUp Awesomeness group and how so many people were debating to buy from this brand due to its high price points. Reason why I do not buy is due to how I can get awesome products for more than half the price but getting it here is awesome so I don’t have to pay that price and glad they put a mascara in this bag. This mascara claims to be a bold and flexible product that lets you have long lasting looks from fluttery lashes to really dramatic ones without the clumps. I will have to see about that since sometimes I do have some clumping if I am not too careful. I will have to see how this goes on top of my Tarte Stage One primer. This retails for $30.

Complex Culture Sonic T-Bar Massager: Next up is a product from Complex Culture and it’s different from what I’m used to too. This is a tool that helps with the skin by making it relax and less puffy. Apparently in someone’s review Patrick recommends that it should be used for serums and creams when it comes to spreading them. I must try this out with that since I do use a thick moisturizing cream at night. This retails for $58.

About-Face Paint It Matte Lip Color in Cautionary Tale: Next is a product from a brand called About-Face. This is a liquid lipstick that has minty matte formula that is long lasting too. This is a plum shade for your lips even though a review said it made her lips look brown. I do have to say is that I do not knock brown lipsticks myself since I sometimes wear one myself. I do love liquid lipsticks and I do use a lip primer first so I will see how this goes. This retails for $22.

IGK Hair First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo: Sorry guys, I made a mistake. You choose three items not four but the choices were good and some of them were hard to choose over! This first choice is from IGK Hair which is a dry shampoo. When I saw this, I had to go for it since I may be running low on both of my dry shampoos and it’s good to try a new one once in a while and glad to see this as a choice. This is a dry shampoo made with charcoal powder to help refresh second, third, and even fourth day hair and gets rid of that greasy feeling that builds up over time. I will be using this and see how it goes! This retails for $27.

Item Beauty One Hit Triple Action Setting Mist: Another item from Item Beauty and this is where I had the most trouble in my choices. Group 2 had awesome items to pick from. I almost went for the press-on nails but realized I got them in a set from Ipsy so I went for this since I do use setting sprays and remembered running low on my Tarte one at the time, which is now done, which I need to do an empties post. You can use this spray as a primer, as a setting mist and a refresher for your makeup. It is made with aloe, tiger grass extracts and lavender oils to help calm skin. Interesting! It also uses sodium hydrolats to help lock in makeup. I will use this as a setting spray and see how well it goes. Right now, I am using one of my Ulta Beauty ones so this will be next! This retails for $18.

Kitch Scrunchies in Mauve & Blush: Final item is more of something I do enjoy and that is a set of scrunchies! I have been going crazy and buying scrunchie sets from Hot Topic but when I saw this set in a choice group, I decided to go for it. You get five scrunchies in this set and are made with a velvet plush material that will not snag nor pull on the hair which is nice! I will be using these! These retail for $12.

Wow! This was an amazing first start for this tier in Ipsy! I think this is a better replacement for Ultimate. I cannot wait to see what May’s bag will come with since that is the next upgrade for GB Plus. There is one thing I wished is that they should use the Glam Bags that came with Ultimate with this one! Come on Ipsy, include a makeup bag with this one like with GB Plus and Ultimate! Maybe they will later like they did with Plus. I am so excited for my products and will be trying out the Huda Beauty shadow pallet and the Pat McGrath mascara and probably switch up my scrunchies with one of the Kitch ones to see how they feel. Thanks, Ipsy! What is next? It says that the NMNL box should be here tonight and I am still waiting on my Glam Bag to arrive since it got to Orlando this past week. Whenever it is in Orlando that’s when shipping is delayed. Let us see on which post is next!
