December Glam Bag Review

 In the cold winter month of December I received my fun Glam Ipsy Bag I wait for every month. And it comes like clock work in the middle of the month. It’s awesome like a gift surprise package that comes in this hot pink shiny bag that’s addressed to Me?! This month I did get some great things that I tried them all and sharing my review here for all the beauty product lovers like me. In this December Glam Bag which was by the way so fab and reminded me of Disney’s Frozen. A light blue bag with shimmery silver glitter on top that was the perfect theme for the winter blues!

December Ipsy Glam Bag

The first product was a face cleanser by First Aid Beauty which was creamy and has a scent of a mild soap that is gentle to your skin. It’s great to use after a long day and helps completely remove your makeup and even clears out pores. After washing and drying my face it felt smooth and really refreshed. Not only that very young feeling to the touch, I’ll take that even if it’s for the night. I love that it’s perfect for sensitive skin types which I’m guilty of that.

Smashbox Cosmetics eyeliner in fishnet which was a black liner. Now the brand is a winner already but I had to try it out for myself and it goes on so smooth but also can be easily blended for a cat eye. Also it’s waterproof and can vouch for that one because I did wear it while it rained…still stayed on nice and pretty as I applied it. I usually get the skinny eyeliner but if you like the thicker eyeliner pencil then it’s just right!

The next product I pulled out of the bag was a brush from Luxie Beauty. Precision Shader Onyx Brush 239! I have tons of brushes from Ipsy and I don’t mind but I can admit I have not used about half of them. Honestly unless I use a brush for every makeup application and toss it, then I could go through every brush. But it is soft and has a pretty ombre coloring on bristles. Also the soft bristles are synthetic which means no furry friends were harmed during the process of making this fluffy new brush. Thumbs up for animal lovers!!!

Before-No Makeup

One of my favorite beauty products to get in my glam bag is the mascara. I have very short thin eyelashes that tend to fall out so much, so not fair!? But now days they have so many mascara’s that make your lashes look fuller and plumper. I got the Rodial Glamolash Mascara XXL in Black which is my top mascara in my makeup bag since I first used it. It give super volume with the bristles grabbing ever lash and lifting it up like a push up bra…no joke. I didn’t even have to apply much because it coats so well. That’s a big time saver in my life. I would highly recommend to buy this for fuller lashes and a great lift for the day and lasts all night. In the pics below you can see how it added length like extensions for the day. And I will say it comes off easily in shower.

Now I saved the best for last review here! Love trying new shades of lipsticks, glosses, and melted matte to match different shades of outfits. The name of this pretty dusty rose opaque matte lipstick is Too Faced Melted Matte in Queen B…the name says it all. Definitely caught my eye and when I tried it even fell more in love with it. Made with avocado oil, vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid spheres(bubbles that hold onto moisture), happy lips. It goes on smooth and is such a pretty shade of dusty rose which I don’t have yet so excited to add to my colors. It even makes your lips look fuller and plumper! I even did a snapchat pic because it matched the ears(LOL) Snapchat Queen!

October Ipsy Glam Bag Review

Some of the best brands here in this fun fall Ipsy glam it up bag! It Cosmetics & Tarte. Check out my review here and what I thought of all these beauty products this month!

 1. TONYMOLY Peach Hand Cream-Now I adore hand creams especially this time of year fall when it starts to get cooler and everything gets chapped and dry. So I think this was a score for this month of October and it’s small and pretty in pink to fit in your purse on the go!

2. Firma Beauty 201 Tall Blender Brush-I’m all go for brushes but goodness gracious can I get tired of getting a new brush every month in my Ipsy bag. Yes they all have different purposes and can be reused numerous times but i’m on overboard with the brushes already. I’ve used this one a few times and it’s soft and subtle on the skin for adding powder under the eyes or some eyeshadow on the lids and works great!

3. Tarte deluxe lights,camera,lashes 4-in-1 mascara-This is a good brand and pricey as well so I’ve never just gone to the store or online to purchase this brand because I wasn’t sure how good it was and didn’t wanna spend that much. I tried this fun cute sample size and it worked well as mascara can work. I like the bristles how soft and small they are so they glide the mascara on each and every lash.

4. Essence Cosmetics Satin Touch Blush in Satin Love-I did try this eyeshadow but wasn’t for me don’t like the color or how it doesn’t show up easily so to me not a great choice. Not sure if it’s the brand or just the shade of color choice but won’t be using this again. Not a fan of the brand as I try something and don’t like or love right away then goodbye! But good thing with Ipsy you can try a sample for $2 and either give it away to a friend who will like it or love it and then move on with other beauty products.

5. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder-Now this brand is my all time favorites since this past year. I have the amazing pressed powder foundation I love and use always(replaced my old sephora brand with IT). Also have variety of the mascaras and eyebrow filler pencil that works wonders! Now this powder is for hiding pores which mine are so small and unnoticeable that maybe my review isn’t that good but from my perspective it works but hard to tell with pores. It goes on so soft and has a light scent to it but once on it feels like silk on your skin, which was nice. But I probably won’t be really using this product again because I’m not in need of it. But for people that have noticeable pores it may be perfect because I adore this brand it’s worth every penny if you ask me!

What I like about Ipsy Glam Bags every month?!?

Love getting a fun hot pink package in the mail every mid month with new samples of famous expensive brands that I can test out and use but also do the trial run. If I like I can buy again and if not then I can say I tried it! It’s only $10 bucks a month and you can do reviews on the products to rack up points towards monthly products that are free to get once you have enough points.

What I don’t like about the Ipsy Glam Bags?!?

Every month you can change your answers to your beauty likes and preference but not always does it match to your exact likings, it’s kind of a hit or a miss! Every month since I signed up about a year ago I have gotten a brush small large medium, different colors and shapes but the funny thing is I have a million of them now and probably don’t use but 3 on a weekly basis. So kinda annoyed that things I don’t use much or only need a few of them in total for years, they keep sending me them and it’s a waste of space.
