Our Ipsy Glam Bag Plus February 2020 Review
Here is our info card complete with all of our items.
Our bag this month is a pearly pink faux leather with a deep magenta interior.
Now, on to the items!
Murad Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30, 1.7 fl oz – Retail Value $65.00
Sunscreen is a year-round necessity, but I always find myself obsessing over it a little more right before spring. It is a great time to buy a new bottle of your current fave, or try something new! In this case, I received a full bottle of SPF moisturizer from Murad and I am quite pleased. This is a brand that I find very high quality and effective, but never buy because the price tags are terrifying. I will certainly take a tube in a box though! I am really impressed with the texture of this formula. It leaves literally zero residue or film behind, which is an impressive feat for a facial SPF. It also has a citrusy scent that is really pleasant. I am very happy with this addition.
Il Makiage Inkliner in ‘Black’, 1 fl oz – Retail Value $21.00
Look ya’ll. Black eyeliner! I know, I know. Someone out there gets excited every time. I mean, I have about a billion makeup brushes and I still get amped whenever I find a new one in a box. Eyeliner addict, this is for you! This stuff is a true black, but had a longer dry down than I was anticipating, meaning when I bent my wrist it got a little messy, as you can see below. If you just leave this product alone long enough to try though, the staying power is pretty great. The marker style tip allows for precision application too.
Dominique Cosmetics Sweater Weather Palette – Listed Value $29.00
Swoon! To all my readers out there who have been lamenting the red/orange/warm palettes that seem to be everywhere, this is a breath of fresh air! Although this palette is winter themed, I personally think these shades couldn’t be more perfect for spring. The pastel vibes are giving me life. Everything was actually really well pigmented and super smooth, save for the dark ‘Messy Bun’ shade which required a little more romancing to really shine. I think my favorite shade might be that charming periwinkle. It looks truly adorable alone all over a lid with a candy pink pout.

Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Lipstick in ‘Seoul Rose’, 3.5 g – Retail Value $16.00
I have liked every single Touch in Sol product I have tried, but those were all skincare. I was stoked to see this lipstick from them in my bag. I am really impressed with it. Imagine a matte finish with a satin feel, and loads of hydration. Now also imagine you can use this as a sheer tint or a totally bold opaque look? This lipstick can seriously do it all and this color is a stunner. It is the perfect sort of formula for trying out that Korean gradient lip look trend. I kind of think I need all the colors available in this formula, STAT.
Gaaaah! I am drooling.
Sweet Chef Sheet Mask Trio – Retail Value $9.00
I also received these in my Ultimate bag this month, but this duplicate set couldn’t make me happier. I adore these masks. This trio consists of kale, ginger, and beet formulas. The beet and ginger are a lightweight clear serum, while the dreamy kale is a creamier sort of magic. All of them left my skin looking and feeling great, and to add to the cuteness, each has an illustration and a saying on each cheek!
Verdict: This box has a value of $140.00 which is awesome for a $25 box. I am legitimately blown away by this box. I usually really love my Ipsy boxes, but this might be an all-time favorite for Glam Bag Plus. Aside from the eyeliner, I absolutely loved and adored every single thing inside. The Murad SPF moisturizer came at a great time as I like to stock up on good SPF facial formulas right before spring hits. The lipstick was a dreamy color and the formula was divine. The Sweater Weather palette is so freaking pretty, and I love that it is all matte, versatile, and has that amazing lavender shade. I am also head over heels for the mask trio. I plan on buying more of these!! I am pretty over the moon with this whole box and very, very happy with my February selections.
