Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on my Ipsy Glam Bag Plus for May! For those of you unfamiliar with Ipsy Glam Bag, it is a monthly beauty subscription box. You receive 5 deluxe/sample sized products each month. The subscription is $12.00 a month and usually has a theme. They also offer an upgraded box every month called Ipsy Glam Bag Plus. This box is $25.00 a month and includes 5 full sized products. You are able to choose 3 of the products in your box and Ipsy chooses 2 for you. Ipsy's picks are based of your beauty quiz/product reviews. They also offer a quarterly upgrade from your Glam Bag Plus called Glam Bag X. This box is $55.00 a quarter and includes 7-8 full sized products from higher end brands. All three subscriptions come with a themed makeup bag each month (different sizes per subscription type).  For Glam Bag you are able to pick two items in your bag. With all subscriptions you also have the option to skip a month whenever you feel like it which is a huge bonus offering. I am currently subscribed to Ipsy Glam Bag Plus. The theme for this month's bag is "Flower Power". Keep reading to see what I got in my bag this month!

Ipsy Glam Bag Plus May 2021 "Flower Power"
Here are the items that I received in my bag:

Ofra Cosmetics Pressed Blush in Rose $15.00
This is the first item that I chose for my bag. I am a huge fan of Ofra highlighters and really like the blush that I have from them as well. This blush is super pretty and perfect for every day. Its a matte formula and gives a subtle rosy mauve tint to the cheeks.

Here is a swatch of the blush:

KVOSS NYC Blushing Beauty Luminous Blush Palette $36.00
I got the KVOSS NYC highlighter palette in my bag last month and really liked it! I chose this as my second item in my bag. I know that I already chose a blush for my bag but this palette is so pretty! They are also different shades and formulas compared to the Ofra blush. I use blush every time I do my makeup so I knew I would get use out of both blush options. This palette includes 3 blushes that all have different finishes. A coral shimmer blush, a rosy satin blush, and a peach matte blush. All three are beautiful and I am once again impressed by this brand.

Here is a swatch of the blush palette:

Girlactik Rose Oil Petal Gloss in La Rose $20.00
This is the first item that Ipsy chose for me. The packaging is so pretty and it seems nice. However, I prefer lipsticks, liquid lipsticks, and glosses over lip oils.  I have a bunch of lip oils that I haven't even tried yet so I will be saving this for a giveaway. 

Milk Makeup Kush High Volume Mascara in Boom $25.00
This is the last item that I chose for my bag. I have wanted to try this mascara for quite a while now so I am glad it was featured this month. This is actually a really nice mascara. Its not my all time favorite but its a pretty good mascara for everyday. It gives nice volume to the lashes.

Avant Skincare Pro Perfecting Collagen Touche Eclat Primer $122.00
This was the second item Ipsy chose for my bag. For 1oz of product the price is honestly crazy. I don't think any primer would be worth that much unless it instantly makes you look like you have a filter on your face. This brand is featured in beauty boxes alot and I have never seen anyone talk about it outside of the subscriptions. I will be saving this for a giveaway.

This was the themed bag for May. It's definitely fun and gives me spring vibes for sure.

TOTAL VALUE: $218.00

Ipsy offers discounts and cash back on brands/products featured in each month's glam bag. You are able to purchase full sized products that are sampled/or featured in the Glam Bag that month. The products are discounted from normal price and you can get cash bag on the purchase. They also offer "Ipsy Offers" that are discounted beauty bundles from different brands. You are also allowed to add "Add Ons" to your Glam Bag Plus which are other items featured that month that are not part of your personal box. These items are heavily discounted. Lastly, they offer "Mystery Bags" which again are bags of heavily discounted products.

Overall, this wasn't my favorite bag but I am really happy with the three items that I chose. I know I will get a lot of use out of the blushes and mascara. I can't wait to see next month's bag.
