IPSY Glam Bag X Review Curated by Bailey Sarian

Updated on

IPSY is a household name when it comes to beauty subscription boxes. Their original subscription is the Glam Bag, which includes 5 deluxe sized beauty samples for you to discover some new favorite products. IPSY recently bought out the beauty subscription service, BoxyCharm, and now offers this monthly subscription of 5 full-size beauty products every month. They also have a skincare subscription called Refreshments.

But if you’re REALLY a beauty product guru, or just like discovering new amazing products, you’ll want to give the Glam Bag X subscription a try (recently renamed the “Icon Box”).

This is a quarterly subscription where you’ll receive 8 full-size beauty products that are curated by various celebrities and makeup gurus. This is a fun box to get, and you’re sure to discover some new favorites with this subscription. Let’s check it out!

IPSY’s February Glam Bag X was curated by none other than Bailey Sarian – the creator of Murder, Mystery and Makeup. My box was full of amazing beauty products, from makeup to hair products to skincare. I really loved most of the products that I received, one of my favorites being the Kiramoon Star Jelly Mask. I use this mask often, and would’ve never found it if it weren’t for this subscription. If you’re looking to try amazing new products and want to treat yourself, I highly recommend signing up for this quarter’s upgrade.

How Much Does It Cost?

This subscription is $58 per quarter. To sign up, you’ll first need to have a monthly glam bag or boxycharm subscription, and then you can upgrade to receive this quarterly curation.

If $58 seems steep to you, think about this… I received 8 full sized beauty products in my February Glam Bag X that retailed at a combined $295. I’d say that’s an incredible deal, and I’m here for it.

What We Like About Ipsy Glam Bag X

There’s so much to love about this quarterly subscription! The full sized products at a hugely discounted price, curated by well-known beauty gurus and celebrities who fill you in on their beauty secrets and favorite products to use. What’s not to like? Well, just one thing for us really…

What We Don’t Like About Ipsy Glam Bag X

The only thing I didn’t like about this quarterly subscription was getting stuck with a few full sized products that I didn’t really enjoy. I ended up just giving these away to my sister and friends for them to try, so it’s not a huge deal, but it would be nice to have more choice in what you receive.

Kiramoon – Star Jelly Mask

Kiramoon Star Jelly Mask

This mask is AMAZING! It’s an exfoliating mask that helps you buff away dead skin cells, improve texture and skin tone, and have beautiful radiant skin! I felt like it did exactly that for me. Application is super easy, they even include a brush! You just put it on, leave it for 20-30 minutes, then rinse away. Their packaging is super cute which gives it some brownie points in my opinion! So excited to add this one to my beauty arsenal, and so happy I have the full sized product so it will last me a while. This jelly mask retails for $45.

Voir – Perfecting Prism Color Protecting Pre-shampoo Treatment

Voir Perfecting Prism Color Protecting Pre shampoo Treatment

I’m huge about hair products, and honestly? This one didn’t blow me away. You’re supposed to put it in your hair before you wash it for extra color protection, but I didn’t notice anything different. I also didn’t like how my hair felt afterward. Not for me, but it may be someone else’s cup of tea. This product retails for $17.

Too Faced Cosmetics – Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

Too Faced Cosmetics Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

The regular version of this mascara had its moment a few years ago with everyone raving about it. I personally prefer waterproof mascara, so I was really excited to try this new one out! Honestly, I like other mascaras more, this isn’t one I reach for very often. But I’m glad I tried it and will definitely use it on occasion! Retail for this fan favorite mascara is $28.

Benefit Cosmetics – Brow Microfilling Pen

Benefit Cosmetics Brow Microfilling Pen

I LOVE Benefit Cosmetics brow products, so I was excited to see this one in my Glam Bag X. And I’ve got to say… I really like this eyebrow product! It has a triple prong tip to make realistic looking eyebrow hairs that’ll fill in sparse brows. I seriously reach for this all the time, and love that I have the full size product. This brow pen retails for $25.

Truly Beauty – Coco Rose Fudge Whipped Body Butter

Truly Beauty Coco Rose Fudge Whipped Body Butter

This body butter smells so good! Scented with Coconut, Rose and Shea Butter, this will leave your skin feeling hydrated and smelling amazing. It also has a collagen booster and algae extract which will give your skin the extra help it needs. A little goes a long way, this should last me a while. Retail for this jumbo tub is $35.

Laura Mercier – Translucent Loose Setting Powder

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

I have used this setting powder in the past, and it is the best. I was so excited to add it back to my makeup drawer! This will help you blur imperfections and set your makeup. It’s light and easy to use, and a great pick for this collection. Retail for this is $40.

Ettika – Neutral Hair Claw Set

Ettika Neutral Hair Claw Set

These hair claws are quality! I was honestly floored by the price, I usually don’t spend that much on clips, but they are worth it and will definitely last. They have been very well used since I’ve had them. And the neutral colors are perfect. LOVE! My sister and my mom really liked them too. These claw clips retail for $45.

Dr. Loretta – Tightening Eye Gel

Dr. Loretta Tightening Eye Gel

This eye gel will help you level up your skincare routine, and reverse signs of aging around your eyes. I really like using it, and feel like it does what it claims! This is an awesome product that Bailey Sarian included in her favorites lineup. Retail for this eye gel is $60.

Final Thoughts

The February Glam Bag X by Bailey Sarian killed it with some amazing products. I personally use most of the products I received, and getting this box was so fun and refreshing! I really liked the curation and the theme which goes right along with Bailey’s brand (Murder, Mystery and Makeup). It was super fun.

If you want a fun quarterly pick-me-up, or like trying new products out, I highly recommend signing up for a monthly IPSY membership, and upgrading every quarter to get this fun subscription!

Just remember, IPSY recently changed the name of this quarterly subscription to the “Icon Box.” May’s curation is sure to be a good one as it is curated by Anastasia Beverly HIlls, and the products look amazing! Be sure to sign up before quantities run out!
