I am so excited to finally be writing this post! Living in Canada my options for subscription boxes are fairly limited…not to mention that I’ve been on the Ipsy waitlist for months! Then, just my luck there was postal delay for two weeks at the beginning of April, Ugh! However, patience persisted and I am now the proud owner of my first Ipsy Glam Bag! So here goes my first beauty box review…better late than never!
What was in my bag you ask? Are Canadian bags different than the rest of the world? I’ll let you be the judge 🙂
I’ll start by saying that I am thrilled with what I received and am super stoked to try out my new products!
~ The Bag and the Theme ~
Beauty Rocks!Love this theme as I am a rock star at heart 🙂
~ Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant ~
“dr. brandt microdermabrasion is a revolutionary formula designed to mimic the transformative brightening, smoothing effects of the popular in-office microdermabrasion treatment at home. Enables better absorption of skincare products, an at home alternative to professional, clinical treatments, helps diminish the appearance of fine lines, acne marks, and skin discolorations.”~Dr. Brandt ~
~ Starlooks Lip Liner ~
“Starlooks’ long-lasting, full-coverage Lip Liner enhances the shape of your lips and gives them perfect contour and definition, with high-end quality you’ve never before experienced. This creamy, moisturizing formula glides on softly to smooth lips and ensure lipstick stays in place, while extending its wear. Can also be used as an allover, highly-pigmented lip color. Comes in several shades and various finishes to pair with any Starlooks Lipstick, Lip Gloss, or Tendergloss!”

~ Coastal Scents Eye Shadow Brush ~
“This medium sized, versatile brush is ideal for applying any type of eye shadow. The pony haired bristles are both wide in shape and condensed, while remaining evenly distributed. This allows the artist to uniformly cover the whole eyelid in just a few simple strokes, which saves not only time, but eye shadow as well. This professional cosmetic brush can also be used for shading the crease and highlighting the brow bone with complete precision.”

~ Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide on Eye Pencil ~
“The best Eye Pencil ever, ever, ever! Never before has a pencil this creamy and brilliant been waterproof, too. Velvety-soft, this never-before-seen formula stays soft and creamy for blending (about 30 seconds), then dries down to a long-lasting finish that WILL NOT budge. Line eyes with a hint of color or go for the full artistic, multi-hued effect with the wide selection of lush tropical hues, deep metallics and unusually vibrant neutrals. Incredible with Urban Decay Eyeshadows!
Created with 50% moisturizing ingredients suspended in a sophisticated waterproof formula, 24/7 Eye Pencils offer long-lasting color and a dreamy, creamy feel when applied. With Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and Cottonseed Oil.
When your 24/7 Eye Pencils start to get dull, use the small barrel of our Grindhouse Double Barrel Sharpener to grind them back to a perfect point.”

~ Elizabeth Motts Pop Goes the Shadow ~
“Our goal was to create the ultimate shadow where blend ability meets the maximum color payoff. Our buildable colors will take you from subtle highlights to dramatic Smokey eyes. With pop! Goes the shadow, eye shadow creasing is a thing of the past. We pride ourselves on our long-lasting and crease-free formula that stays on all day and night. So get ready to try the eye shadow that will change your life!”
