In case you aren't aware, Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service available to U.S. and Canada. Each month you receive a bag with 4-5 deluxe samples/full size products for $10/$12 and free shipping.
There's typically a wait list, but I'm pretty sure if you sign up now, then go to Ipsy's facebook you can click a link and skip the wait list.

Let's see what's in my glam bag this month!

This month I received 5 products in my bag. When I first saw my glam room, I wasn't too excited, but now that I have the products, I'm pretty happy.

Let's go from left to right:

Cover FX Mattifying Primer with Anti Acne Treatment. This is a sample size of 0.5 fl oz. which is pretty good for a sample. The full size is 1 oz and retails for $38. I haven't tried this yet as I'm actually just going to keep it sealed and take it with me when I travel this summer. This sample is worth $19.

Elizabeth Mott Pop Goes the Shadow in Champagne. This is full size and retails for $12.99. At first I wasn't happy to see that I got this product and after first swatching it I was pretty disappointed. It's not very creamy and not very pigmented, but then I swiped it across the back of my hand and it occurred to me that this is the most perfect shade for a highlight. I'll have a swatch below.

Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm in Apple Pink This is also full size, comes with a lip brush and retails for $19. This is another product I wasn't very excited about. Looking at the jar, the color looked boring and I was just not all that happy. Then, I went ahead and swatched it and it's so much prettier than it looks in the jar. I love it.

Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide on Pencil in Black Velvet. This is a travel size pencil; the full size retails for $20, so this is probably worth around $10. It's smooth, creamy and doesn't budge when it's dry, just like all of the other UD Pencils. I'm a huge fan of Urban Decay eyeliners and this one is no different.

St. Tropez Gradual Tan for Face with Anti Aging. This tube contains 0.5 fl. oz., the full size contains 1.6 fl oz and retails for $35. I haven't used this as I'm already tan and I've heard extremely mixed reviews. Everyone either loves it or totally hates it. This sample is worth around $10.

So, here are the swatches! The eyeshadow is hard to see, it's under the lip balm swatch, but you should be able to see it better in the second swatch.

The total for this month's bag is around $71. Not bad for spending $10, huh?

Can't wait to see what we get in next month's bag!
