March 2018 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

I have been an Ipsy subscriber for over two years, and at first I was a bit skeptical about a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box because I didn't want to end up with a bunch of products I couldn't use or didn't know how to use. Each month you get full size or deluxe-sized products in a cute makeup bag, and I was sold after checking out their previous bags. If you're not very adventurous with makeup like me, it's a great way to build your makeup collection on the cheap and expand your makeup expertise!


The March 2018 glam bag theme was Create and I love the first ever DIY glam bag. This 
bag came with two markers so you can unleash your creativity and colour your bag any way your like. How fun is that?! The bag was designed by LA-based artist Priscilla Witte and I'm loving the street art/colouring book vibe. 

In my bag:
Hikari cream pigment 
Glossier Balm Dotcom universal salve
Benefit Cosmetics Bad Gal Bang (eeeeek!)
Andalou Naturals body lotion
Tarte sex kitten eyeliner

I was most excited to get the Benefit mascara even though I already own it (and LOVE it) LOL. My Hikari product arrived broken so I was a bit disappointed about that. I rate the March Ipsy Glam Bag a 4/5!

More about the products inside:

Hikari cream pigment- Since this product arrived broken, I wasn't able to try it as it was intended to be used. I hate throwing away makeup so I repurposed it by putting it in a bottle of clear nail polish :) Now I have a super pretty gold nail polish topper!

Glossier Balm Dotcom universal salve- Just when I thought I didn't need any more lip balm, Ipsy had to go an introduce me to something I now can't live without. Seriously, this Glossier balm is perfect. My lips felt hydrated and I'm happy that this salve isn't only for lips. You can use this product anywhere so if you like packing light, this would be perfect for you!

Benefit Cosmetics Bad Gal Bang- I've said it before and I'll say it again...I'm a Benefit Cosmetics junkie. Ugh. I can't help it. Their products are just so damn good! I like that this mascara is lightweight and makes my lashes look super long, but natural. It's like magic. If you haven't seen it already, check out my side by side video on Instagram here  so you can see the results for yourself. 

Andalou Naturals body lotion- I'm a sucker for rose scented products and this Andalou lotion is right up my alley. Not only does it smell great, it absorbed well and left my skin feeling soft :) My new love!

Tarte sex kitten eyeliner- I wasn't blown away by this eyeliner, but I like that it's a super convenient size so I can take it along when I'm travelling. It's a creamy pencil that glides well and smudges easy so you can create many different looks with one product. I like the formula of Tarte products since I find most of their products are long lasting. I've only tried this once and so far...no complaints!

I was happy with the March glam bag and can't wait to see what April has in store! Tell me...did you get the March Ipsy bag? I'd love to hear from you!

My First Time using Melixir face oil

This year, my skin has been on its best behaviour. I'm not entirely sure if it's because I've been paying more attention to wha...
