I’m a bit late reviewing my Ipsy Glam bag this month. The March cosmetic bag was my favourite so far – a super cute, original design by artist Klari Reis. The bag contained:
- NYX Love in Rio Eye Shadow Palette in “Segredos De Giselle”: $6.75 CAD
- bareMinerals Marvelous Moxy Lipstick in “Get Ready” (1.5g sample size): $23.00 CAD for full 3.4g size
- Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer (12ml sample size): $25.00 CAD for full size
- Chella Indigo Blue Eyeliner Pen: $26.90 CAD
Retail prices are in CAD and don’t include taxes or applicable shipping.
There were only four products in this month’s bag, which is slightly fewer than normal, but three of them were higher end brands that would be over $20 each to purchase on their own.
I love NYX eyeshadows, and I’m happy with the trio I received in “Segredos De Giselle” – a peachy pink, a beige, and a bronzey-brown, all shades that I would wear. The same with the bareMinerals lipstick shade; it’s a super wearable pinky-rose. The shade “Get Ready” seems to be exclusive to Ipsy, as it isn’t available on the Canadian Sephora site. I am also loving the Pixi primer, a water-based, fragrance-free primer that works well with my MUFE HD Invisible Cover Foundation.
I haven’t used the Chella Indigo Blue Eyeliner Pen yet, which is a water-resistant liquid liner. I’m not really a blue eyeliner person.
The total retail value of the March bag if I were to purchase these products (not including taxes or shipping, etc.) was: $81.65 CND.
The Chella website ships to Canada, but states “Canadian customers are responsible for all duties and GST”, and doesn’t say what shipping method they use. The Hudsons Bay Company logo is on their site under “About Us” so they may carry Chella products? For where to buy NYX, bareMinerals, and Pixi in Canada, checkout my Canadian Makeup Shopping Guide.
