I’ve been getting the Ipsy Glam Bag Plus for a couple of months now and so far I’ve been really impressed by the products I’ve received.
This month’s box included:
Nomad Cosmetics Berlin Underground eyeshadow palette
Glamglow Tropical Cleanser
Illamasqua Antimatter Lipstick in Midnight
Ciaté London Extraordinary translucent power
Wander Beauty Frame Your Face Micro Brow Pencil in dark brown
My box arrived yesterday and since today is my day off I decided to play around with some of the products, specifically the eyeshadow palette and eyebrow pencil.
I had to use a different palette for an initial crease shade but the remaining six colors were all from the palette.
Overall I’m very impressed by the pigmentation, the blendability and how approachable this palette seemed.
The brow pencil is fine, I personally prefer bigger tips because I just use it to fill in my brows but overall I was able to use it and I liked the way my brows came out. The pigmentation was great, not too much and it didn’t feel waxy
I’m not sure if I’ll try out the remaining products or gift them since I already have so many of those products in rotation.
I’m very happy with this month’s box and would definitely recommend it!

I was definitely a little scared of the colors when I got the Mini Jawbreaker palette, especially Hot Fudge which was the only brown but it was a cool brown, I don’t do well with cool tones, but I was determined to use it!
I wanted to try the purples but, it’s red shirt Friday so I went with this to avoid clashing.
The formula is amazing, as always. The shimmer packed such a punch when I applied it with a wet brush and it has a beautiful shift of orange in it.
Given the cool toned brown I knew I’d have to pair it with a browner lipstick and Colourpop Grundge was the perfect tone!
I can’t wait to use this more and to dig into those purples!
And for some reason, when I opened up the palette and saw the cool toned brown and bright orange my mind instantly went to Converse! I’m sure the star played a part of it too

This is the second time I’ve used this palette and it surprised me by coming apart on me.
I’m not sure exactly what happened, the shadow cleanly came out of the pan. Unfortunately I was in the car and I spent a few minutes trying to figure out what to do.
After collecting myself I was able to maneuver the shadow back in the pan and used a towel to press it back temporarily.
I’m not going to lie, it completely bummed me out. For $129 you would think I wouldn’t have any issues; I was able to repress it but I’m considering exchanging it anyway so I can avoid risking it falling out again.
I decided I NEEDED the Nars Hot Nights palette. The swatches looked so beautiful and I’ve been into full face palettes lately. I took advantage of the Sephora Rouge sale and picked up the Hot Nights palettes but decided to hold off on the Summer Lights palette.
The color is almost creamy and it’s a lot more sheer than I’m used to but I still managed to come up with a look I really liked.
Other than Manini, the bronzer color, every color is a shimmer so if you’re not OK with shimmer everywhere I’d steer away from this or have a matte palette handy.
It looks like it’s sold out at Sephora but still avails on the Nars website
