Ipsy Glam Bag - December 2016


What is Ipsy?: Ipsy is a monthly subscription that sends 4-5 beauty/makeup products plus a different makeup bag each month. They also have a referral program where you earn points. Be sure to use your points within a year of earning them, though, because they do expire. They have expanded the points program to give you additional points by sharing your bag and following their content creators on social media accounts!

How Much is Ipsy?: Ipsy is only $10 per month shipped to the United States or $10 plus shipping ($4.95) to Canada.

Bless whomever gave me a new hand cream in December. It was necessary and well-loved.
 

I really wanted to like this bag...until it came in. It feels like horse hair, not a fun bag to carry around with you. It was given away immediately.


Theme card.


Cake Beauty Heavy Hand Cream ($6.60) - Cake Beauty is one of my favorite lotion/cream brands. They are all solid products, they smell great, and they work. This one, in particular, is really good for your hands during the cold months because it's really thick and keeps your skin moisturized for a while.

POREfessional Primer ($4.13) - This is my primer. This one is the very one I use nearly every day just due to my pores on my cheeks being large enough for me to easily notice with most foundations. I find it works all day, holds my foundation to my face, and does work to fill in my pores some. It's not perfect but it does a good job.

'tini Beauty Eyetini (Firestarter) ($13.00) - I love 'tini Beauty products so I was thrilled to try this out. I didn't find that I really liked it as a cheek color but I do like it over a deeper lip shade to lighten it as well as add a bit of shimmer to a matte shade. I absolutely love it as a eye shadow shade, though, it's a great crease shade!


Royal & Langnickel (Angle Shader) ($2.86) - This brush is only available in a set so I linked to said set. It's not the best brush in the world, good for starters but not for someone that has a good collection of brushes already. I passed this along.

Tarte Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint (WCW) ($2.40) - Ohhh, I was so hoping to try a Tarteist Glossy before purchasing one. The formula is so good and I love this shade for a more bold lip. I really like the wear of this but would love to get it in a few more wearable shades for the future.


'tini Beauty, Tarte.


This bag was valued at $29.99, triple the cost. On top of that, I loved nearly every item in this bag and got a travel backup of one of my ride or die products, double win!

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