New! Ipsy Beauty Glam Bag April 2020

Hey, Everyone!

Sorry I wasn't able to get my usual Sunday post up. Even though we are still under quarantine, I have a lot going on at the moment and it makes it difficult to keep up with everything. Hopefully, today's fun post will make up for it!

I received Ipsy's beauty bag subscription for the month of April for free thanks to an online buddy, and I think it's a really great bag.

If you're not familiar with Ipsy / Glam bag, they are a monthly beauty subscription service where you receive a makeup bag and 5 personalized beauty products (usually deluxe sample sizes) based on your own individual profile. The subscription is $12 USD per month, which is a great deal! But, if you live in Canada, it will end up costing about $21 per month with the exchange rate and the $2.95 shipping and taxes fee.

I'll share what I received and hopefully, it will help you determine if the bag is right for you.


My bag has a mix of skincare and makeup which is right up my alley! In my Beauty Quiz, I requested not to be sent fragrances and quite a few other items, which pretty much left skincare and makeup which is just what I wanted to receive.


Firstly, the makeup bag that came with my subscription is super cute and good quality, I'll definitely get use out of it.

I was happy to see 2 K Beauty sheet masks in my bag by Jayjun Cosmetics. I've never heard of this brand before but I'm looking forward to trying them out. Discovering new beauty brands is my favourite thing about these beauty subscription services!

One mask is for brightening and one for calming- both right up my alley!

Next up, I received a deluxe sample size (30ml) of Pure Heals by Nature Village Propolis Softening Toner. Niacinimide is the 3rd ingredient, so I'm stocked to try this out!

The first makeup item is this beautiful neutral eyeshadow quad by Oryza Beauty in Nude Shimmer and Contour (8 grams). It's another brand I haven't heard of! I actually selected this item before the bag was shipped. I received an email from Ipsy as they allow you to select your first item from a list of choices, the rest of the bag's contents are up to Ipsy. This palette is quite flimsy and doesn't have a mirror but it's great for the purse or travel. I appreciate small packaging more and more as I find it difficult to store bulky items and use up all my products before they expire. 

I also received Estate Beauty's baked highlighter in Dew Me (3.2grams). This is yet another brand that is new to me. It looks to be a bit of a blinding type of highlighter so I'll have to do a lot of blending as I like a subtle highlight (Essence Be My Highlight is my favourite). I'm still happy that I received this to try out and if I don't find myself using it, I can pass it on to someone else.

The last item that I received in this month's bag is this beautiful blush by Kaleido Cosmetics in the shade PrimaDonna (3 grams). I've never heard of this brand before either but the packaging states they are vegan and cruelty-free! 🐰

NOTE: I'm in Canada and my bag shipped on April 8th and I received it on April 21st.

I'm really happy with this bag and excited to play with everything! It's rare that I will use everything in a subscription box but this one is an exception. I know that many of us are going through difficult times for our own reasons and sometimes playing around with some new makeup can make us feel a little bit better, even if it's just for a little while.
