February 2018 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

I have been an Ipsy subscriber for 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 February 2018 glam bag theme was Unzipped and I'm loving the pink and lace bag design. I'm a sucker for anything pink LOL! This bag also marks two years with Ipsy :) HOLY MOLY!!! I'm thrilled to see new things from Ipsy, like the Shopper program and better rewards, but I still feel like a lot of the items are "recycled" from previous months and would love to see bigger samples. 

In my bag:
Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold blush
Hey Honey Come Undone makeup remover
Trèstique mini eye pencil
Luxie Beauty blending and shading brush
Apto Skincare day lotion

I was most excited to get the Apto lotion because I was unfamiliar with the brand and always enjoy discovering new products. I rate the February Ipsy Glam Bag a 5/5!

More about the products inside:

Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold blush- I really like the white and gold packaging and the creative use of each side of the box to display important information. This blush can be used on its own or as a topper for other blushes since it showcases a micro gold frosting for an added pop of light. There's a subtle fragrance that reminds me of cherries, but it could be the mangosteen, lychee and chamomile combo that's offering the sweet scent. I really like that this rose gold formula is blendable and buildable so you can wear it sheer or full glam. 

Hey Honey Come Undone makeup remover- I love multitasking products and the Come Undone makeup remover from Hey Honey is a skin cleanser, makeup remover, and eye makeup remover all in one. This product starts off as a gel and finishes to a milky cleanser once the job is done. My skin was left feeling clean, but not stripped. I LIKEEEEE!

Trèstique mini eye pencil- I've been a fan of Trèstique since discovering the brand in one of my Ipsy bags and it's always a treat to get their products. This sample was so tiny that I almost didn't notice it in my bag, but this small pencil sure packs a punch! It does take some getting used to because the formula is super soft, but you can get some precise lines like a regular pencil, or smudge it out if you're looking for something to make your smokey eye really pop. 

Luxie Beauty blending and shading brush- I love the colours of the Luxie brushes I've gotten from Ipsy and I was happy to get another perfect brush. The blending and shading brush is an Ipsy exclusive and it's nice to have just one brush that is double sided since I like to pack as little as possible when I'm travelling. Luxie brushes are soft and hold product well so I can create nicely blended eye looks. I prefer synthetic brushes like this because I find they do the best job. 

Apto Skincare day lotion- I found the formula of this lotion to be a bit on the watery side, but it absorbed quickly and easily. I liked the fragrance and my skin was left feeling hydrated and smooth. I used this product in the morning and found that the moisturizing properties lasted all day. I'm impressed! 

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