ipsy February 2018 Subscription Box Review & Try On

Ipsy offers a monthly "glam bag" dedicated to the makeup, skin care, beauty tools, and hair care from emerging and established brands.

My ipsy bag arrived so late last month! On top of that, I was traveling the last week of February so here we are with a better-late-than-never February 2018 ipsy Glam Bag product try-on.
First, a little information on ipsy. With every ipsy delivery, you’ll receive an adorable collectible makeup bag and 5 products. Sometimes you’ll receive deluxe sample size products, sometimes you’ll receive full size products. All products are selected specifically for you based on your Beauty Quiz answers.

Along with your glam bag and products, you’ll also receive an insert with a mini description of the current month’s theme. I’d love to receive a product info. card describing the products and how to use them, but I can see how that would be difficult. The bags vary so much, there would have to be one pamphlet including information on every single product you could have possibly received. That would lead to a lot of irrelevant product info. and wasted paper.


The Beauty Quiz taken when you subscribe to ipsy will determine which products you receive in your bag. Reviewing each product received will further refine the selections made for your bag in the following months. Ipsy makes every effort possible to give you products you’ll not only want to try, but that you’ll be excited to try.
Completing reviews will also give you points. Points can be redeemed for bonus products in your glam bag. Bonus products range from 250 – 600 points, reviewing each product will earn you a minimum of 15 points per product. You can also earn points by referring new subscribers and by following/subscribing to ipsy and its creators on social media.

The February bag is much easier on the eyes than January’s. The bag has a blush pink color and the top is lined with black lace. The zipper pull is a black rubber disc with ipsy written in blush pink on it.


My ipsy February 2018 Glam Bag included:

Ipsy Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Ipsy Unzipped

  • OFRA COSMETICS
    Liquid Lipstick in ipsy Unzipped

    • I am LOVING this liquid lipstick, it feels incredibly natural on my lips. The color is also very wearable, it’s ideal for everyday makeup looks and evening makeup looks where you play up your eyes. I’m seriously so impressed with this liquid lipstick.

Ipsy Lychee and Gold Healthy Glow Rose Gold Blush

  • SERAPHINE BOTANICALS
    Lychee + Gold

    • This gorgeous blush is made to be flattering on on all skin tones and is 99% natural. It’s blendable, buildable, and hydrating. With lychee and chamomile extracts this blush gives a subtle, glowy flush of color. The color is peachy, rose gold with imperceptible flecks of gold shimmer.

Ipsy Five Minute Facial Mask

  • BIOBELLE
    Perfecting Primer Facial Mask

    • This 5 minute mask is the ultimate primer. This mask promises to even out your skin tone, minimize the look of your pores, and improve your skin’s texture creating the perfect canvas for makeup application. This mask is made with tea tree oil, rosehip extract, and vitamin C.

Ipsy marsk Loose Powder Eyeshadow

  • MARSK
    Loose Eyeshadow in Foiled Again

    • This cruelty free metallic loose powder can be used wet or dry. When it’s used dry, it gives a subtle shimmer, when it is used wet it creates an extra dramatic look.

Ipsy BYE BYE Under Eye

  • IT COSMETICS
    Bye Bye Under Eye™ in Light, Medium Tan, or Warm Deep

    • Where do I begin? This product makes such hefty and appealing claims, yet these claims are not fulfilled. Let’s start with “Won’t Crease or Crack!” It creased about 5 minutes after I put it on. The coverage was full, with 2 layers of product, but it was so shiny. Shine is NOT what I want when trying to cover discoloration and my dark under eye circles.

Bottom Line:  Except for the it Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye concealer, my products this month were great! The OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in ipsy Unzipped is easily my favorite product this month. I’m sticking with ipsy for now, they’re doing great this year!
