December 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

My current makeup subscription box is from Ipsy. I was a bit skeptical about a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box because I didn't want to end up with a bunch of products I couldn't use or didn't know how to use. Each month you get full size or deluxe-sized products in a cute makeup bag, and I was sold after checking out their previous bags. If you're not very adventurous with makeup like me, it's a great way to build your makeup collection on the cheap and expand your makeup expertise!

The December Ipsy Glam Bag theme was Carpe P.M. I thought the hot pink furry bag was super cute for the holidays. This was the first time I got a furry bag and I have to admit, I kinda dig it! I like that the December bag looks and feels like a wristlet with its extra long loop zipper pull. NOYCE!


In my bag:

Heavy cream hand balm by Cake Beauty 

REN skincare Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask
NYX eyeshadow in Jaded
Tarte Maracuja Oil
Hikari felt tip liner in Iris 

This was the second time I got a Cake beauty hand cream, and I am NOT complaining. My skin truly appreciates any and all moisture this time of year and honestly, you can never have too many hand creams (one for each purse..you know what I'm saying!?!) I rate the December Ipsy Glam Bag a well deserved 5/5! What a fantastic way to end the year.

I was excited about many things in this bag. I love that I got a felt tip liner in another colour other than black! YESSS! And of course I was so stoked to see the REN mask :) I'm truly a happy camper...thanks IPSY!!

More about the products inside:

Heavy cream hand balm by Cake Beauty- I really like the way Cake beauty products smell good enough to eat! UGH, guys you don't understand...this hand balm is da bomb (sorry, not sorry for being so cheesy!!) If you're looking for a serious dose of moisture without feeling greasy, I highly recommend that you check this out! 

REN skincare Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask- This mask felt so luxurious! I have been a huge fan of REN since discovering them earlier this year from one of my Ipsy bags. I love that this brand makes my skin feel super smooth and pampered. Stay tuned for a full review!!

NYX eyeshadow in Jaded- I'm not the biggest fan of green eyeshadows, but I can't deny how pigmented this shade is. I do like NYX products but I prefer gold or pink shades. 

Tarte Maracuja Oil- This is one of those things that I honestly don't know what everyone goes crazy for. I tried this oil before and it only led to the worse breakout since I was a teenager. I'm too scared to give it another go, and as much as I want to love this like lots of other people I know...I just can't handle the trauma of another breakout. To this day I don't know what it is about face oils, but my skin always seems to say "no thanks!!!"

Hikari felt tip liner in Iris- I really like this liner and let me tell you, the picture doesn't do it any justice. This is about as adventurous as I'll get with eyeliner so this is kind of a big deal for me. LOL!! This deep violet shade looked great on my skin and went on super smooth. Just one coat was all I needed to get a nice pop of colour that lasted all day. I'm so in love!!!



What did you get in your December Glam Bag? I'd love to hear from you!

My First Time using Melixir face oil

This year, my skin has been on its best behaviour. I'm not entirely sure if it's because I've been paying more attention to wha...
