I love subscription boxes and beauty products and today, I’m sharing about the
ipsy Glam Bag Plus for July 2019. This includes affiliate links.

ipsy Glam Bag Plus July 2019

A long time ago, I tried out the ipsy Glam Bag subscription service. This included a super cute beauty bag with 4-5 deluxe products for $10.00 per month. When I learned about the ipsy Glam Bag Plus, I was really excited! It was a little bit more expensive, but instead of deluxe sized products, I received 5 full-size products based on my beauty profile! The cost for the ipsy Glam Bag Plus is $25.00 a month plus tax. The box has a retail value of at least $120 in products! Woo hoo! Once you sign up for ipsy, you’ll fill out a Beauty Quiz, noting things like your skin, eye, and hair color. This will also ask about your beauty expertise and style. The ipsy Glam Bag Plus has become another favorite beauty subscription box of mine and I definitely recommend it.

Eyeshadow Palette

HUDA BEAUTY is a female-founded company launched by makeup artist and beauty influencer Huda Kattan. This compact palette is loaded with nine shadows and is the ultimate day-to-night eye color wardrobe. It includes both mattes and shimmers, all of which are super pigmented, creamy and blendable. Plus, it comes with a large mirror – perfect for when you’re on the go. I’ve been wanting to try a HUDA Beauty palette for quite some time and can’t wait to try the HUDA BEAUTY Obsessions Palette in Smokey. Plus, I love that it’s easy to take with me wherever I go! (Retail value: $27)

Tip: Using a fluffy shadow brush, sweep the light brown shade across your entire lid. Then, use a crease brush to blend the medium brown shade into your crease. Using a smudge or liner brush, press either the dark brown or black shade along your top and bottom lash lines. Finish with a pop of any shimmer shade in the center of your eyelid to highlight.

PURLISSE Watermelon Energizing Aqua Balm

Aside from being the favorite summer fruit of many of us, watermelon is really good for your skin! It’s the star ingredient in this lightweight balm, packed with vitamins A, C, and E to help hydrate, brighten your complexion, and regenerate your skin cells. Plus, aloe vera and cucumber work together to calm inflammation and reduce redness, and white tea extract protects your skin cells from damage. (Retail value: $45)

Tip: Apply pea-sized dots onto your forehead, nose, chin and cheeks. Smooth it evenly all over your faces using your fingers.



I love lightweight mists and am super excited to try the PIXI BY PETRA Glow Mist! It’s formulated with 13 natural essential oils (like rose flower and lavender), aloe vera, and fruit extracts to set your makeup, hydrate, protect, and give your skin a gorgeous, dewy finish. (Retail value: $15)

Tip: Shake it up. Mist onto skin before makeup or all over your face, hair, and neck throughout the day for a refreshing pick-me-up.

As a redhead, I have light colored lashes and that means that mascara does volumes when it comes to my makeup! I love IT Cosmetics and was excited to receive the IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara in Super Black. It’s great for giving you long, lifted, defined lashes! This no-flake formula is enriched with exclusive Elastic Stretch Technology – superpowered ingredients like biotin and peptides (to strengthen), polymers (to lift), and collagen to build up your lashes from the inside out. (Retail value: $24)

Tip: Wiggle the wand through your lashes in a zig-zag motion from root to tip. To pile on the drama, just swipe on another coat.

NAKED COSMETICS 4-Piece Pigment Set (Retail value: $40)

I love eyeshadow, but have never really tried eye pigment before. I was immediately in love with the sparkle and colors in the NAKED COSMETICS 4-Piece Pigment Set and can’t wait to try them in my makeup looks! NAKED COSMETICS products are made without fillers, like oils, wax, or talc, that can be damaging to your skin. These highly-pigmented, finely-milled loose pigments blend so easily. Mix and match them to create endless eye looks. (Retail value: $40)

Tip: Use a dense shader brush to apply SN-02 all over your lids. Blend NN-01 into your eye crease. Smudge SN-04 or SN-05 along your lower lash link with a damp angled eyeliner brush. But don’t stop at eyes – you can also use these pigments as a highlighter, or mix with your fave lip glosses and nail polishes to make them shimmery.

HUDA BEAUTY Obsessions Palette in Mauve (Add-On)

I love mauve colors when it comes to eyeshadow and lipsticks, so I was stoked to add on the HUDA BEAUTY Obsessions Palette in Mauve for a great price! The colors in it are so pretty!!! This compact palette is loaded with nine shadows and offers the ultimate day-to-night eye color wardrobe. I love that it includes super-pigmented mattes and shimmers, while the creamy powder formula blends like butter. It also comes with a large mirror, making on-the-go application super easy. (Retail value: $27)

Overall, I really love the ipsy Glam Bag Plus subscription box! I love that it includes full-size products and the product value was greater than the cost of the subscription box. I highly recommend the ipsy Glam Bag Plus!
