Info card. The theme is Guard the Magic and it was figured out from the spoiler last month, the theme references Rise of the Guardians. I still haven't seen it (not available anywhere around here on hard copy and I haven't made it to checking Netflix or Hulu), but let's see if I can figure it out! The lovely ladies at Notoriously Morbid also informed us that they are going to switch to using sifters, which absolutely thrills me. I love sifters and feel like they should always be used!

Macros.

People Believe in Me (Easter Bunny) - I love this grey/lilac base and that it has bits of shimmer throughout. The shade looks just like the lighter bits of the bunny in the movie. It's a lovely shade for a light sweep and the slight hint of purple makes it a great pop.

The Moon Told Me So (Jack Frost) - This jar did come noticeably less filled than the other jars. I'm not sure if there was a problem when filling, but it sucks a little. I'm hoping this is fixed when the sifters are used in the January bags.  The color is gorgeous, though, and reminds me of Jack Frost's sweater. It's a lovely navy with bits of shimmer that reflects a wonderful green shade!

Bandit King (Santa Claus) - This is a gorgeous bronze/copper shadow! I love how it reflects the shimmer that matches the base perfectly! I only learned this character from a post in the Notoriously Morbid group, so I haven't quite linked the shadow to the character (help?). It applied like a dream, smooth and almost no fallout!

Sleepy Sands (Sandman) - The perfect sandy gold with so much simmer, it's ridiculous! Definitely my favorite color of the month. This is definitely the color of the Sandman and the color of his sand in the movie! It applied perfectly, and looks wonderful alone.

Swatches.


Lipcraft in Wings Up (Tooth Fairy) - A gorgeous shimmering lip gloss. It's good for putting over another lip color if you want some added shimmer!


Spoiler, 'Students of Lawndale High, your attention, please.' I vaguely remembered this, and Googled to double check, but it's from Daria!

Overall, I liked this month's bag. Two of the eye shadows were perfect, and I'm hoping the product being low is fixed in January's bag! I definitely am happy about there being sifters starting next month, and I'm glad they decided to do such. Also mentioned was that the 2016 bags will start having more products introduced, so I'm excited to see what they come up with next year!

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
