IPSY Glam Bag X Bailey Sarian February 2023 Unboxing + All February Products!

Wednesday, February 22, 2023

I received a complimentary Glam Bag X from @IPSY. #GiftedbyIPSY All opinions are my own. This post may contain some affiliate links. 

Hey, y'all! I've got one more Ipsy for you this month: The IPSY Glam Bag X for February 2023! This quarter's GBX is curated by Bailey Sarian, the creator of Murder, Mystery, and Makeup (if you like True Crime stories and makeup, it's so entertaining!) I'll tell you a little about IPSY Glam Bag X, all of the products that could come in this season's GBX, plus what I got in mine. Let's get unbagging!

If you haven't heard of IPSY's Glam Bag X yet, it's a seasonal upgrade to your regular Glam Bag or Glam Bag PLUS, so it will replace your bag every three months. If it replaces your base Glam Bag, it's an extra $45 per season to upgrade. If it will replace your Glam Bag PLUS, it will cost an extra $30 to upgrade your bag for each seasonal shipment. If you're subscribed to both, it will replace your PLUS bag for that month.

GBX is curated by a different celebrity each season. Past curators have included Patrick Ta, Khloe Kardashian, Huda Kattan, Halsey, and Alicia Keys. This season's curator is Bailey Sarian!

The GBX contains 8 full-sized products (worth up to $350) specially curated by beauty’s biggest tastemakers and celebs, and you get to choose three from a personalized assortment, which includes exclusive product drops you won’t find anywhere else. 

You have to be a current IPSY member to upgrade. Just click on the X tab at the top to sign up for the upgrade. During each upgrade month, you’ll get to build your Glam Bag X starting on the 2nd at 9 a.m. ET until the 3rd at 6 p.m. ET.

I love that you can choose more of your items (3) than with other beauty box subscriptions (usually just 1, if at all) and the value is on the higher end of the spectrum, so it's a really good deal!

Check out all of my IPSY unbaggings so far here.

ALL February 2023 Products

I like to be able to share everything that could come in your box. Like most beauty boxes, you will complete quizzes and compile a profile for yourself when you join. That will determine the items that IPSY will choose for your bag and not all bags will look like mine. 

This is everything that could come in a Glam Bag X this month.

There are some amazing products in the lineup! Drunk Elephant, Fenty, KVD, Scott Barnes, Pat McGrath, Laura Mercier...there are so many great beauty and skincare brands!!!

IPSY Glam Bag X February 2023

As I mentioned before, this season's curator is Bailey Sarian. 

"You might know her as the innovative creator of Murder, Mystery, and Makeup, or you may recognize her unmatched makeup skills from your Instagram feed, but we’re excited to officially dub Bailey Sarian as our February Glam Bag X curator. “I am psyched for you to experience my Glam Bag X and kick-start your beauty evolution,” says Bailey. “Prepare to embrace your wild side with my GBX collab, where dramatic makeup and no-holds-barred glamour will give you a guaranteed glow-up.""

I've been watching her Murder, Mystery, & Makeup series for years and also enjoy her Dark History series. She's real, funny, and entertaining and her makeup skills are incredible. I am so psyched for her Glam Bag X collab!

"A hair detox masque rich in texture and ingredients that deep conditions and restores locks to achieve a flake-free scalp and touchably softer hair.
    -Soothes the scalp, reduces sebum and the appearance of flakes
    -Smooths and repairs dry ends
    -Complete detox therapy for hair and scalp
    -3-minute deep conditioning & purifying treatment
    -Rich sensorial cream texture"

I could use some moisturizing and scalp-soothing after the cold snaps we've had here. This hair mask smells lovely, too.

"This dual-action exfoliating mask features chemical and physical exfoliants. The eight-acid blend includes lactic, glycolic, salicylic, azelaic, mandelic, pyruvic, tartaric, and citric acids plus biodegradable plant beads to visibly polish away roughness and uneven texture revealing healthy-looking, glowing skin."

With dry skin that gets flakey, I always try to stay exfoliated. I love a physical + chemical exfoliator, so I'll be popping this in my shower to try it out.

"A first kiss of lychee, ruby grapefruit, and rose hit you at first blush. At its core, this scent’s smoky heart unfurls to become all leathery floral, crushed petals, suede wrapped in silk. Crushed florals will leave you crushing on this inimitable scent."

My packaging is slightly wonky but the scent inside is truly wonderful. I love a rose floral and this layered, warm rose scent is lovely. It starts with a fresh, bright floral that turns deep and cozy. 

"Laura Mercier introduces its #1 Setting Powder*, now in a luminous, light-creating finish for all skin tones: the Translucent Loose Setting Powder in Light Catcher. This super-finely milled powder sets makeup for 12 hours with a blend of skin tone contrasting and correcting pearls for an effortless, luminous finish. Unlike other luminous powders that emphasize imperfections, the weightless pearl blend becomes one with skin, blurring and smoothing the appearance of texture, pores, and fine lines. The most versatile of setting powders, Light Catcher can be dialed up or down for any end look using our Velour Puff, Powder Brush, and Angled Cheek Brush (sold separately). Whether used to set all over face, create dimension with light, or intensify luminosity the formula never creates texture, feels heavy, or looks cakey."

I'm so excited to try this one! Laura Mercier's original setting powder is my all-time favorite but lately, I've been favoring a more dewy finish. I've been trying out different methods to get my foundation set while not looking slick or like I fell face-first in highlighter.  This is supposed to set your makeup with a more natural skin-like finish so I'll be giving it a try asap!

"Perfect your skincare routine and get a beautifully clear, even complexion with this alcohol-free Floral Clarifying Toner. A botanical blend of potent plant extracts, it delivers some of nature’s best skin-purifying ingredients. Witch Hazel, known for its many medicinal qualities, is a natural astringent that tones and balances the skin to a healthy pH. Rich in tannins and antioxidants, it dissolves oil, dirt, and debris to deep-clean your pores. A quenching dose of soothing Aloe Vera Gel maintains healthy hydration, restores moisture and softens the skin. Nourishing Rose, Lavender, and Jasmine Flower Extract help you stay grease-free throughout the day unlocking your skin’s natural clarity and radiance. Loaded with anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties, this delicately scented bouquet helps calm, protect, and replenish."

This sounds like a great deep-cleansing and balancing toner. 

"ModCon melts on easily and feels like a second skin. Build this shimmer-free blush up without highlighting texture or getting streaky, tacky, or patchy. The innovative formula helps keep skin looking hydrated, bright, and smooth, and it’s infused with hoya lacunosa flower extract."

A shimmer-free blush! Yes! While shimmery blushes look good in the summer sun I prefer non-shimmery blush in the colder months; It just feels out of place to me. Luminary is a peachy-beige and will be perfect for a light flush of color.

"A nourishing, moisturizing, plant-based peptide and collagen cream that is an intense overnight treatment for fighting wrinkles, age spots, and depleted aging skin. This night cream features a synergistic blend of bioactive plant-based vitamin-enriched ingredients, including:
    - Violet Leaf and Sea Buckthorn Berry rich in vitamins A, C and E, antioxidants, and fatty acids that help restore skin's bounce, smooth, firm, and tone the complexion so it looks more even, youthful, and revitalized.
    - Vitamin E and a blend of over 10 different plant-based oils to deliver antioxidant, wrinkle-fighting benefits by targeting the breakdown of collagen and elastin.
    - Water-binding peptides combine with Hyaluronic Acid and several of the fastest-absorbing, non-greasy plant-based oils nourish, deeply hydrate and boost moisture retention.
    - Non-comedogenic Grapeseed Oil is reported to have a unique antioxidant that is 20x greater than Vitamin E and 50x greater than Vitamin C. "

I've tried the Grown Alchemist Day Cream and I liked it. Can't wait to start using this one at night.

8. PAT MCGRATH LABS Forbidden Love & LUST Lip Duo in Beautiful Stranger and Aphrodisiac ($29)

"MatteTrance Mini Lipstick in Beautiful Stranger (Coral Rose): This revolutionary powder-in-a-bullet smooth matte Lipstick layers lips with an intensely saturated, sublimely lightweight veil of color in a single swipe. The unique oil-infused powder formula creates a lush, soft-focus effect, helping to condition lips for a supple, comfortable feel with legendary wear. Its creamy-matte texture can be applied directly from the bullet for maximum seduction, pressed onto lips for an angelically blurred stain, or blended into cheeks for a sensual, siren-worthy glow.

LUST: Heart Gloss in Aphrodisiac (Mid-tone Peach): Inspire transcendent temptation with a 3D, stained-glass look. This exquisite oil-enriched formula blends a plush, balm-like texture with the hi-beam luster of a Gloss. The flexible, tapered applicator features a unique reservoir tip for precise, even application. Gloss drenches lips in light-yet-luxuriant emollience, providing incredible adherence without a trace of stickiness. The covet-worthy collection is available in a range of finishes, from tantalizingly transparent to smoldering saturation to intergalactic sparkle, and can be worn alone for sublime shimmer or over lipstick for a decadently glamorous gleam."

These colors are right up my alley and that mini matte lipstick color is just gorgeous. The set is very cute and I can't wait to start wearing them!

That was my February 2023  Ipsy Glam Bag X. I received so many must-try products and there are a few that I know are going to be new favorites. This is my first time getting a fragrance from Ipsy and I hope that means there are more to come. So happy with this GBX; It's time to PLAY!

My GBX was worth $378.50!!! You just can't beat it for the value.
