March Ipsy Glam Bag

Hi y'all! I was super excited for Ipsy* to come in this month! My bag came super late this month, that's why this post is so late. I drafted it when I had the information but I don't like posting without trying or having the products in my hand. I posted my bag from February and January and wanted to keep going with March. Because not only do I love makeup, but I love a bargain. And even though they're sample sizes mostly, it's still an incredible deal.

Aphrodite Skin Care Replenishing Eye Cream
I'm actually pretty excited about this. Ever since I got the olive oil lotion I've wanted to try more olive oil products. It smells amazing and a little goes a long way. I don't know about reducing puffiness but it feels good on my face. This is perfect. Mine is 0.05oz and the regular is 2.56oz.
Regular price: $23.99

Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Baked Bronzer in Heat Wave
I'm new to makeup. I've said this already. But I know what bronzer is...sort of. I've never used it, but I've actually wanted to try. So I'm glad I got this. I did want to see what it would look like on, so I put it on my eyelids. It's not a dark pigment, which I think is great for a bronzer. If you want to layer more on, it could double as an eyeshadow. Mine is 0.23 oz and the website doesn't give sizing information so I'm not sure how big that one is.
Regular price: $16

MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer- Hydrating Primer
Im not sure about this yet. I've never used a primer before so we'll see. I put some on the back of my hand and it made it super smooth though. And it smells great. You want something that's going to be on your face day to smell good! Mine is 0.16oz and they sell it in a 1oz tube.
Regular price: $37

Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Short Shader Brush 223
I'm not going to say I'm uninterested. I'm just not totally feeling it. I guess I'll have to see how it works...if I can figure out what it's for... I used it to put the bronzer on though and it seemed to work okay. I do think it's super pretty. I'm absolutely loving rose gold 😍
Regular price: $12

ModelCo LIP LACQUER Lip Gloss 
I got this in socialite. You could have gotten this one or casablanca, and I was really hoping I'd get this one. It smells great, which is good for a lip gloss. But also, I usually have a problem with lip glosses being sticky but this isn't at all. Mine says it's a 0.5oz tube, there isn't a size on the site to say how big the full size one is.
Regular price: $24

Total if bought individually: $112.99 before any shipping/taxes.

I don't think this is a bad deal! I just saved $103 by getting these from Ipsy instead of buying full price items, never mind tax and shipping. Well worth it in my opinion. If you don't have Ipsy, and you like makeup, I seriously suggest subscribing. And their customer service is amazing. My two sisters and I get our bags delivered to the same address and they got theirs about a week before I got mine. When I contacted customer service, they were super polite and are shipping out a second glam bag even though they knew this one was coming anyway. So, in a way, I'm getting twice the makeup for the same price this month so I'm saving even more.

That's it for this months glam bag! I hope you liked my super inexperienced opinion on the products. But honestly I think I'm going to retake the quiz because I just keep getting things that I'm not sure I even want. We'll see.
