The March 2013 Glam Bag is taking you on The Great Escape! With this ridiculously crap weather we've been having lately, I'm READY for an escape.

What you see above is a nautical white and blue stripe makeup bag. Adorable. 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


What’s inside?

First, from Juice Beauty, the Hydrating Mist. This is a wonderful size for travel, especially since skin gets so dry on airplanes. This mist will refresh your skin but it's heavy on the rose scent, so if you aren't a fan of floral you might want to try another product.


Next, from La Fresh, Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipes. I love getting makeup remover wipes as samples. You really can never have enough of them and these ones by La Fresh really do a great job at removal and stay moist after opening.

Third, from GlamRX, the Mini Freestyle Palette. This particular one was made exclusively for ipsy, but there is another version available. These are so awesome for popping loose shadows or other products in for travel. I love that one was in this Glam Bag.

Finally, to put in your GlamRX palette, two small shadow refills from Yaby. I got the shades Sand Dune and So Vain. Pigment was lacking and they were quite patchy to use, even with a firm brush. I used these as part of the EOTD I posted on St. Patrick's Day.

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


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 March Glam Bag? Are you going to subscribe for April? I know I’m looking forward to my next bag!
