February 2013 ipsy Glam Bag Review & Swatches

The February 2013 Glam Bag is set to make you Red Carpet Ready! With Awards Season in full swing, these are definitely must haves even if you just plan on sitting and watching the show from the comfort of your home.

What you see above is a shiny black makeup bag (that holds fingerprints like no other). The card is basically there to give you the run down of what is in your bag and the discounts you can get by visiting the Glam Room on ipsy.com.

What’s inside?

The first item is the Lash Card Individually Wrapped Mascara Shields. I hate getting mascara on my freshly applied eye makeup just as much as the next person… but these seriously are more of a pain in the butt to hold while you’re applying mascara than it is to clean up a small mascara dot from the wand.

The second item is the Smokey Lash Kapow Mascara from POP Beauty. I really liked how this mascara lengthened and slightly curled my lashes.

The third item is the Pixi Flawless & Poreless Face Primer. This product is very slightly tinted & did well as a base for my makeup. My look also held up well throughout the day. My only con with this is the scent is sort of plasticy.

The fourth item is the Gel Eyeliner from MicaBeauty. This is a brand I’ve never heard of but the liner was really great in terms of application and pigment. The formula was easy to glide on and took minimal effort.

The fifth item is a Coastal Scents Shadow Palette sample. I was really excited for this item because I’ve always heard a lot about Coastal Scents and how great their shadows are. I definitely was not disappointed. It was a joy to apply the shadows as they went on smoothly and with great pigment. They were easy to blend and smoke out. The set I received is Glitz & Glamour and includes the shades Candlelight, Gunmetal, Incognito and Ashen.

Below is an eye look using the quad, mascara and liner. I’m pretty in love, which is fitting since it IS Valentine’s Day 😉

All in all, I’m extremely happy with this months bag and it’s a total win! I’m definitely in for March!

Ipsy does profile pages now, so here is mine. There isn’t anything there, but I think it’s fun that it’s offered. Hopefully they’ll also go by way of Birchbox and GlossyBox and have a referral program set up or a point system in place for free products. After seeing how awesome this bag was, that is really the only thing holding them back.

Here is where you can go to subscribe to ipsy for a Glam Bag. It’s not a referral.

What do you think about the February Glam Bag? Are you going to subscribe for March? I know I’m looking forward to my next bag!
