This month’s theme is “The Great Escape” which from the looks of the makeup bag, refers to escaping winter and welcoming beach season and warmer weather. We’ve had some surprisingly sunny and warm weather here in Vancouver lately and I will admit that I pulled out my tank top, shorts and sandals today to do some grocery shopping despite the chilling breeze! I liked the makeup bag print this month and even though there wasn’t a product that completely wowed me, I was still very satisfied with what I received.
Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist
Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist tones, hydrates, and refreshes your face and hair while on the go, anytime of the day. Hydrate with the refreshing blends of organic juices for a fresh, radiant complexion.
Thoughts: This normally isn’t my kind of scent because of the ylang ylang in it, but once I actually used it, it was oddly refreshing.
Full size: 200mL/$22.00
I received: 30mL/$3.30

Thoughts: I love makeup wipes. I went to Costco and bought a 10 pack of Neutrogena ones and even with that in my arsenal, I STILL buy ones from other brands or have different scents. I have only tried La Fresh nail polish wipes, but after reading a few reviews on the Ipsy site, some girls commented saying these wipes have made their skin burn…now I’m scared, but I will try a small area first before I do my whole face!
Full size: 8 wipes/$1.99 (on sale for $1.49)
I received: *FULL SIZE*
Yaby Eye Shadow Refills in Seashell and Azalea Petal
Whether you want to make a dramatic statement or just add a veil of color to your eyes, the yaby eyeshadow refills are extremely easy to work with. Can be used wet or dry and the smooth texture allows blending with ease. All shadows are vegan friendly and the pans are reusable for mixing.
Thoughts: I really loved the colours I received as they are great neutrals and have a pleasantly soft and smooth texture. Pigmentation is great and look how cute and tiny they are!
Full size: 1 colour/$3.35
I received: *FULL SIZE* x 2
Glam RX Mini Freestyle Palette
The GlamRX Mini Freestyle Palette was made exclusively for ipsy Glam Bag subscribers. The magnetic base is the perfect spot to store pan-only eyeshadows (2 of which are included in this Glam Bag!), blushes & bronzers, or whatever you need for perfect for quick touch ups on the go! Whether you are headed off to spring break or just need a cute & clever way to store products in your bag, you can create the perfect makeup look and take it with you with your exclusive GlamRX Mini Freestyle Palette.
Thoughts: I feel like these are pretty cheap. Cardboard doesn’t feel like something that will hold up in the long run and would never replace my UNII palettes. This is a great size though and it was cute of Ipsy to pair off the eye shadows with this special edition palette.
Full size: $16.50 for the Glam RX Touch Up Palette
I received: This palette was created exclusively for Ipsy so it’s hard to put a value on it, but I’d say maybe half the price? $8.25.
Total Value of March Ipsy Bag: $20.24
Again another Ipsy bag filled with things that I have never tried and with the exception of the GlamRX palette, I will definitely use and enjoy everything! I have had a peek at the April Ipsy Bag and I am excited!
