GLAM BAG - JANUARY 2013 - IPSY BEAUTY BAG

So, I am very excited to have received my January Glam Bag.  If you read my blog about December Glam Bag, you would know that this is a monthly beauty subscription. 

This subscription comes from Los Angeles and is hosted by Michelle Phan and many other beauty bloggers.  Every month you receive 4 to 5 beauty products in a newly designed cosmetic bag.

This month, we received some really nice products that are useful and great sizes!

Each month is themed...this month the theme was "A True Star Will Always Shine"

I believe that we are all stars in our own way...!  What is about YOU that makes you a Shining Star!

For me, I am artistic, good sense of humour and I think I'm pretty thoughtful of others!

GOODIES RECEIVED THIS MONTH:
London SoHo New York - Crease Brush
Josie Maran Argan Oil
Pacifica - Vegan, No Animal Testing, Paraban Free - Body Lotion in Tuscan Blood Orange (SUPER PRODUCT....LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!)
Sexy Hair Hairspray
Nailtini Nailpolish - Frappe (soft pink - beautful colour - tried it on my nails, and loved it, got LOTS of compliments!

Check out my Youtube video for my full REPORT on this month's bag! Enjoy!



 



IPSY GLAM BAG REVIEW - DECEMBER 2012

Ladies, I would like to share with you a Beauty Subscription that I have recently subscribed to. 

www.ipsy.com  

This is different from Glossybox, as all your products are delivered to you in a cosmetic bag, not a box.  The service is called "Glam Bag"....the fee is  $10US per month and they do ship to Canada.  Basically the total comes out to about $17 per month for this beauty subscription.

Ipsy is based out of California and it is hosted by several beauty bloggers....one being Ms. Michelle Phan (check her out on Youtube)...link below.

What you will receive is 4 to 5 mid to full size products delivered to you in a cute cosmetic bag.  Each month you will receive different products, as well as a differently designed cosmetic bag.

I started my subscription in December and just completed my Youtube video on my review of the products.  I show you what the contents of the December bag were.
Below you will find some photos, as well as a link to my video.  Check it out!

If you are thinking about subscribing to a beauty bag/box, I would recommend Ipsy.com......you won't be disappointed...


 This is me with all the products that I received in my Glam Bag!

GLOSSY BOX DECEMBER 2012

GLOSSYBOX is a monthly beauty box subscription.  This service is available worldwide and usually ships at the end of each month.  I received my December box on Monday, December 31, 2012.  The fee is $21 Canadian dollars per month.  You have the option of prepaying for 3, 6 and 1 year subscription.  I chose to go monthly, as you can cancel your subscription at anytime.  There are no obligations to keep going month to month.

Thus far, I have to say that I'm very impressed with the samples that I have received, as well as the service itself.  My December box was the second box that I received.

You can subscribe by going to www.glossybox.ca Have fun with it, and let me know how you like it, if you already subscribe to it.
