Ipsy has a Glam Bag Upgrade! Also, I had no idea that you could upgrade to the Ipsy Glam Bag Plus. To explain, I have been an Ipsy bag subscriber for the past three years. In fact, when I started my blog, I subscribed to some subscription boxes and bags. First of all, I subscribe to quarterly boxes, the Rachel Zoe Box of Style ($99), and the Fab, Fit, Fun Box($49.99 each). Each season, these boxes are curated according to that time of year. Next, monthly, I get the Sephora Play! Makeup Box, Birchbox, Allure Beauty Box, and the Ipsy Beauty Bag. Recently, I had the chance to Upgrade my Original Ipsy Bag Subscription to Ipsy Glam Bag Plus Upgrade. So, I did it! I canceled my Original Ipsy subscription, and I signed up for the Upgrade. My first , the 2019 May Ipsy Glam Bag Plus Upgrade, has arrived.
You too can sign up for the Upgrade Ipsy Glam Bag Plus on Ipsy. In addition, your new personalized subscription costs $25 a month.
The difference Between the May Ipsy Glam Bag Plus Upgrade vs. the Original Ipsy Bag
First of all, the Original Ipsy Bag costs $10 a month. On the other hand, the New Ipsy Glam Bag Plus Upgrade costs $25 a month. Furthermore, the Original Ipsy bag gave you five products. Although, the products were deluxe samples. Also, the Ipsy Glam Bag Plus gives you five products. However, the new subscription gives you five full-sized products!

The 2019 May Ipsy Glam Bag Plus Upgrade Items
To start with, each bag has a theme. The May 2019 Glam Bag Plus theme is dreams. Hence, “your May Glam Bag Plus has your dream products.”
Eau Thermale Avene Soothing Moisture Mask in May Ipsy Glam Bag Plus Upgrade
First, the value of the mask $26. So, the mask costs $1 more than what I paid for the whole Bag!
To begin with, the mask is a milky cream that feels light and cooling on your skin.
Additionally, it has a nice powdery scent. Moreover, this hydrating mask also restores the protective barrier of the skin and minimizes redness. Ingredients include Thermal Spring Water to soothe and soften the skin. And, Propylene Glycols moisturize your skin.
The reason I love this mask in particular is one of the most important things you can do for yourself is protect your skin barrier. For one thing, The skin barrier protects your skin and body within from the outside world. Did you know that your first line of defense against bacteria is the barrier of your skin. In fact, it is like a brick wall, that keeps all the bad things out! Therefore, it protects you from environmental stressors, like harmful UV rays, toxins, and pollution.
GO-TO Face Hero in May Ipsy Glam bag Plus Upgrade
The value of the face oil is $34. You do the math! All I can say is the whole Glam Bag Plus costs $25 for 5 products!
Go-To Face hero is a lightweight face oil.
First, it hydrates your skin . Also , it soothes, revitalizes and protects skin. Use it if you have dull skin, uneven texture, uneven tone, and fine lines and wrinkles. The formula includes ten botanical oils, essential fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants.
The reason I would try the face oil is because face oil can be really good for your skin. The oil penetrates quickly into the skin. It is hydrating without being greasy. Also, face oils protect your skin. However, first I would use my serums. Then I would put on my moisturizer. Last, before my makeup, I use face oil.
The reason for this is, you need the serums and moisturizer to penetrate as deep as possible the layers of your skin. Oils, no matter what anyone says, are amazing for your skin’s barrier. However, they do not penetrate as far down as a serum, or your moisturizer.
Yet, the oils are still excellent for your skin’s barrier. Therefore, use oil on top of your moisturizer, as your last step before you apply your makeup.
Yensa Tone Up Primer Essential Glow in May Ipsy Glam Bag Plus Upgrade
Also, with this product, the value is $35. So, Keep doing the math!!! You know what I mean!
Yensa Tone Up Primer is formulated with 8 SuperBlack Ingredients : Black Sesame Oil, Black Seaweed, Black Tea, Black Rice, Korean Black Raspberry, Nettle, Chia Seed, and Shitake Mushroom. Furthermore, there are 8 benefits to using this Primer. First, it is the perfect base for flawless makeup application.
Then, it increases your makeup’s staying power. Also, it minimizes the appearance of pores.
Furthermore, it evens brightness and skin tone to create a smooth, even canvas . It boosts your skin’s moisture. Finally, it can highlight your face with a satin sheen and still look invisible on your skin.
Next in the May Ipsy Glam Bag Plus Upgrade Are Two Makeup Items.
Il Makiage Icon High Volume and Intense Curl Mascara
The value of the mascara is $25! Are you good at math? It is the same price for this one mascara as the entire Glam Bag Plus!!!!! I don’t know how they do it!!
I am used to getting black mascara in my subscription bags. The formula for the Icon High Volume Mascara is lightweight, so it won’t weigh down your lashes. Also, it will not clump! Usually, I love a lot of volume. Therefore, I don’t mind the clumps!
The football shaped brush works well to curl and lengthen the lashes.
I am not crazy about the plastic applicator. I would rather have a brush. Something about the plastic “brush” makes me shiver. However, I have three daughters in law, and one on the way! They’ll love it!
Wander Beauty Wanderess Seascape Eyeshadow Palette
Again, another $25 value. As a result, I can honestly say none of the 5 products were below the price of the entire bag!!! Ipsy, I am impressed!
Moreover, the Wanderess Eyeshadow Palette has six gorgeous shades that take you to the tropics.
Wear these shadows on or off the beach. For example, sea foam , deep blue, sandy brown, sea-salt pink, and warm golds are all pigmented shadow. Also they are infused with skin loving ingredients. This palette is perfect for this time of year. I love it!!!
May Ipsy Glam Bag Plus Upgrade Last But Not Least………..
To begin with, I am impressed with my first ever Ipsy glam Bag Plus! First, I have enough deluxe samples to last me a lifetime. Unfortunately, I could travel for the next ten years, and still have deluxe travel samples in the drawer! Moreover, I think the Glam Bag Plus is more bang for your buck. The reason for this is, ten dollars doesn’t give you much. Let’s be real, do we really need to pay for samples? It is a pleasure to receive full sized products. And, if you do the math, you’ll see for yourself that this is truly worth every one of those $25! Of course, my favorite products have always been the makeup. Also, I especially love getting eyeshadow palettes and lipsticks.
In addition, I am tired of mascaras. However, I love learning about all of the skincare.
Try it, you’ll love it. Furthermore, you still take a quiz, and create a profile. And, your Bags Plus are also curated for your needs. Randi and I have proved that to you in our many unboxing You Tubes. She and I get different products because our profiles are different! Your products will be different from mine, and Randi’s!
