Subscription Satelite: Ipsy March 2022

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

Ipsy March 2022

I got both my Glam Bag and Glam Bag Plus a few days after each other. I feel that this month’s bags had more makeup being centered since I felt I had a lot of skin care and picked makeup items for GB Plus. The regular Glam Bag is $13 and the Glam Bag Plus is $28 a month. In the Glam Bag you get more deluxe size items and sometimes full size ones while GB Plus contains more full size items and you choose three items each month. Let’s see what I got!

Glam Bag:

  • Context Skin Matte Lipstick in Robot Lover
  • Half Baked In Bloom Powder Blush in SoftServe_Queen
  • Pure Brazilian Daily Anti-Frizz Serum
  • Shana B Miami Be Extra Pigment Duo in Venetian Gray and Queen Of Diamonds
  • Winky Lux Super Perfect Under Eye Concealer in Light Beige

This month’s bag was about makeup and one hair item. The product I selected was the Winky Lux Under Eye concealer since it was different from what I’ve seen in past choices. Even though there were concealers in choices for past bags, some months didn’t have the right shade for me and I was glad to choose this one. It was very creamy when I applied it. I just put a dab on my mixing palette and then dabbed it on and blended it with a brush. I figured it was easier than putting a huge glob on my under eyes. It blended very well though. I did use the lipstick from Context Skin since it was my second lipstick from these guys due to getting it last month. It is a medium dark red color which is perfect to wear at work. Plus, it feels good on the lips! I am currently wearing the Shana B Duo and the Half Caked Blush which I was surprised at the size of the blush but I was able to fit my brush very well. I took a look and it is supposed to be a cotton candy shade and so it’s pink. It did go on pretty well. I did use the shadow duo on top of my Mac Paint Pot in Taylor Gray to enhance the gray in the duo. I did find it weird that the other shade felt like it was falling apart slightly. At least this is just a sample I don’t have to worry about. With the anti-frizz serum, I only used it once when I was using my other hair products, I did notice my hair was softer so I have to keep using it.

Glam Bag Plus:

  • About Face Light Lock Fluid in Fight or Flight
  • ViseArt Petit Pourquoi
  • Gerard Cosmetics Hydro Matte Liquid Lipstick in 1995
  • Alleyoop Multi-Tasker
  • MOTD Cosmetics Highlighting Powder in Lucid Moon

Now it’s time for Glam Bag Plus! I wish the final group for choices had better options since I feel like that it always feels meh. Even though the second grouping felt the same way. I did pick some pretty good items and they were the liquid lipstick from Gerard Cosmetics, a sponge and brush duo from Alley Oop and a highlighting powder from MOTD. I was most excited about the Gerard Cosmetics lipsticks because I heard so many good things about these over the years. I was glad to see this item as a choice and picked it. I felt that the applicator was interesting but it did apply a good amount of product. I do carry it with me in my makeup bag for work since it’s a rosey brown shade. I will have to check more things out by this brand since I heard good things about the eye primer. I am wearing both of the MOTD and About Face highlighters on my face at the moment. I did the same thing with the concealer by applying the About Face liquid on the pallet and applying it with my fingers and then used the MOTD highlighter with a brush to blend the two together. I like the idea that the About Face liquid is in dropper packaging and it helps with product distribution and won’t go all over the place. I do have another all thanks to an About Face duo I picked up from the Offers page. I haven’t used the Vise Art shadow quad as of yet. Wait! It is an eight pan! I will try it out and see how it goes!

That is it for this pair of bags. I’m happy with this month’s bags and what I chose. I’m thinking of linking each product again with each bullet point, and will do that whenever I get my Glossy Box. I did check on its status and nothing about shipment, I did ask them and they explained that it would ship within the month and it’s already the second to last week of the month. Still will be looking out for it. Hoping it does arrive and that is the next post!
