What’s in my Ipsy Glam Bag for January 2018?

Today, I am going to be showing what I received in my glam bag for the month of January. If you are unsure what Ipsy is well, it is a monthly subscription for five beauty products (usually travel size, however sometimes full size) that is personalized for just you,  that costs $10 a month plus free shipping for your glam bag. At the end of each month, you will rate each individual product and the glam bag as a whole. The ratings will then influence your next month glam bag. Also, each month there is a different theme that might contribute to some of the products you may receive.

I have been an Ipster since April of 2017, since then I have received glam bags that I was obsessed with and others that… didn’t really meet my expectations unfortunately.

The month of January consisted of the theme “Game Face”, which correlates to the new year, that you can achieve your goals, if you simply set your mind to them then anything is possible. Anyways, let’s see what I got in my glam bag!

Game Face themed glam bag for the month of January 2018.

LUÉ by Jean Seo: Balance hydrating & calming serum

I have never heard of this brand, although I am very curious to try it out! I have been in need of a serum especially throughout these winter months. The serum is light and unscented, the directions state to apply after cleansing the face in the morning or at night.


Mary-Lou Manizer by The Balm cosmetics: highlighter, shimmer, eyeshadow. 

I absolutely love The Balm cosmetics, their products have a vintage vibe to them and they are just super cute, always work out for me, and they are cruelty-free. The Mary-Lou Manizer is a champagne color that gives a subtle glow to the skin. I have also gotten the Betty-Lou Manizer in a past glam bag, which is a copper bronze shimmer color.


Highlighter brush by SLmissglam: L36 (brush name) collab with Ipsy 

First things first is how cute the actual brush is, it had a pink glittery handle and the brush head is this ombre of a pinkish to a neon purple. The brush itself is extremely soft and has a great precision for highlighter. Will definitely use this the next time I wear highlighter!


Dermelect Microfacial Exfoliating Masque

This is also another brand I have never heard of, but I am very eager to try this face mask out, the packing mentions that it’s a multi-brightening mask that restores dull looking skin to luminous and radiant! Also it is cruelty free so as always that’s a win!


Kissable Liquid Lipstick by Kokie Professional: in shade Mad about Mauve

I believe I have received a liquid lipstick by this brand before, I will say that the shade is gorgeous simply because I love mauve shades. I am not a huge liquid lipstick girl overall but I will give this a try and see how I like it.
