Ipsy Glam Bag March 2015 review

Floral-themed bag with beauty goodies for Spring.

Ipsy Glam Bag March 2015 review, unboxing, photos

The March 2015 Ipsy Glam Bag is themed "Floral Fantasy" and is pretty. The blue background with yellow, white, grey and pink flowers is very Spring-y. Best of all, it isn't cheap-vinyl. This time, I've got three full-sized products and two travel sizes. Three makeup products and two skincare products. Which is a nice balance.

Scroll down to view the contents of my Ipsy Glam Bag for March 2015. 



I received:
  1. NYX Butter Lipstick in Little Susie
  2. Pixi Mesmerising Mineral Duo in Apricot Glow
  3. Crown Shadow/Crease Duet Brush
  4. Pur-lisse Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser
  5. Leeanni Eco 3-IN-1 Toner, Serum and Moisturiser

NYX Butter Lipstick in Little Susie

A beautiful Spring shade, Little Susie is a bit brighter than my usual dusty rose. It reminds me of NARS Audacious Natalie, but this has more coral and is a tad paler. Very creamy, this lipstick is more pigmented than I expected. I have swatches of everything for you towards the end of this post.

Pixi Mesmerising Mineral Duo in Apricot Glow

Beauty boxes can send me anything from Pixi and I will not complain. I love that brand and think it doesn't get as much love as it ought. These are both beautiful, smooth, complementary shades with very good pigmentation.

Crown Shadow/Crease Duet Brush

They can send me any number of brushes as well. I was sorting my makeup brushes as part of Spring Cleaning last weekend and found that I did not have as many all-over shadow brushes as I would like (according to ME), so this is great. The thing is, I already have this exact brush. But it is very good quality, and the more brushes you have, the more you can rotate without cleaning them, so yay!

Pur-lisse Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser

The only Pur-lisse products I have used before are the sunscreens and moisturisers from previous Ipsy bags. I'll be glad to try out this gentle soy milk cleanser. Apparently, it removes all makeup in one go, including mascara. If it does that, I would be thrilled and can save my skin from the harsh rubbing to which I subject it every evening.

Leeanni Eco 3-IN-1 Toner, Serum and Moisturiser

This is one product I'm not too excited about. Normally, multipurpose skin products don't work for me and end up breaking me out. Plus, toners and I never get along, no matter what. I am on a new skincare routine right now, so I have time to decide what to do with this.

Swatches

Verdict

I like the makeup I got. The Pixi duo is particularly loved, as also the Crown brush. Some people got eye gels; I would have loved me some instead of half an ounce of toner-serum-moisturiser, which was the one product I didn't like. But you can't have it all the way you want, I suppose. On the bright side, there is no black eyeliner pencil or random hair styling spray sample, both of which have plagued me in beauty boxes recently.
The April bag is expected to have a long-awaited product for me - an eyeshadow from theBalm's N*de'Dude palette, which I have lusted after for a couple of months. I can't wait for April; it's my birthday month and I'm expecting some nice makeup goodies.

  5. NYX lipsticks are the best, and I really love the March bag! They've been slacking a bit for the past couple of months, but this month has some really good stuff!

  9. I was so excited about the NYX lipsticks in this month's bags because NYX lipsticks are my faaaaave. I ended up getting Hunk, which is the one I really wanted because it looked to be a dark berry but it ended up being way more red than I expected :( I'd love to see what Little Susie looks like on!

  13. This bag is awesome! I love the NYX lipstick!

  14. That lippie and the shadows are pretty and worth the price of admission. Ipsy has been putting out good bags but I just know that if I reup, they will start sucking, again, It will be crap and all chemical sunscreen, all the time. I will bitch and piss and moan and everyone will be rolling their eyes and we'll all be miserable. lol

  15. I would have liked to have the eye cream over a toner too. But that brush looks awesome!!!

  24. Nice! The bags and boxes that we get here are nowhere near as good.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I tried it last night and it is very gentle!

    ReplyDelete
  26. YESSSS! I'm hoping there is no more NYX for a while. Not that I'm hating on the brand but NYX, Maybelline, elf, Revlon etc in beauty boxes = not quite what I expect.

    ReplyDelete
  27. ipsy was SO AWESOME this month! One of my faves!

    ReplyDelete
  28. There a nice varierty

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love that shadow duo!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Bummer. I hate getting unsuitable lipstick shades in beauty boxes. I would have preferred a more neutral and brown lippie but this is the mildest of the lot they were sending out. Hope you have better luck in the April bag!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thank you! I love getting brushes in makeup subscriptions.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I haven't either - I hope it doesn't break me out :(

    ReplyDelete
  38. LOL! They haven't actually sent out a black eyeliner pencil, a perfume vial and a mini sunscreen for a couple of months now, but I expect that to change soon, so I'll be ranting enough for the both of us!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love getting brushes in makeup boxes!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm glad to pass on the concealer, TBH - beauty bags can never get my shade right.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thank you! I'm a huge Pixi fan!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Only a matter of time before they start sending out mini black eyeliner pencils, perfume vials and crap again :( But if I cancel, they'll start sending out full-sized Chanel to everyone else. Murphy's Law LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I can't wait for the April bag - theBalm eyeshadows!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Touch wood! I hope the absence of black eyeliner pencils lasts FOREVER and ever, world without end, Amen.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love it too! It's my first from the brand, but it's fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  46. You took the words out of my mouth. NYX, elf, Maybelline, Revlon and so on are not brands I'd like to get in beauty boxes, where the point is to try NEW things. And they're overdoing it with NYX and Maybelline.
