December 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

I have been an Ipsy subscriber for over an year. 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 2017 glam bag theme was snow globe and I was really feeling the Elsa vibe with the shimmery blue and silver bag design. I prefer the "plain" bags over the graphic ones so I was happy to have a nice holiday inspired bag :)

In my bag:
Smashbox Cosmetics Always On gel liner
MAC Extreme Dimension mascara 
First Aid Beauty face cleanser 
SLMISSGLAM highlight brush
Trèstique mini brow pencil

I was thrilled to get the First Aid Beauty cleanser because I've been loving the products I've tried from FAB for a looong time :) I rate the December Ipsy Glam Bag a 5/5 and I'm happy to end the year with an awesome bag of samples.

More about the products inside:

Smashbox Cosmetics Always On gel liner- I've been disappointed with many gel liners but I was pleased to see that the Smashbox liner held up to its claims. It's long lasting and waterproof so you don't have to worry about reapplying throughout the day. Yass!

MAC Extreme Dimension mascara- This sample was teeny tiny so I'll be saving this for my travel bag. I loved the way the wand made my lashes look fanned out but not clumpy. The formula was a bit too thick for my taste and smelled too much like paint. I can tolerate the smell for gorg lashes though ;)

First Aid Beauty face cleanser- One of my faves! I can't tell you enough how much I love First Aid Beauty and keep the face cleanser and moisturizer stocked for everyone in my home. It's gentle enough for the kids but gets deep down to where I really need it after a long day. 

SLMISSGLAM highlight brush- This brush is one of the prettiest brushes I ever got from Ipsy. It looked gorgeous on my vanity and c'mon...it's one of my fave colour combos! It's a synthetic brush that can be used for cream, liquid, or powder formulas. Perfect for anyone looking for an all-in-one brush! 

Trèstique mini brow pencil- I've been a Benefit Ka Brow snob since last year so I'm very picky with what I use on my brows. I must say, I didn't think I'd be impressed with a brow product like this since I find some pencils don't offer the lasting power as pomade-like brow products.  I'm thrilled that this mini brow pencil can actually fit in my travel bag and the angled tip is great! I can finally give Ka Brow a break (maybe!)

I was happy with the December glam bag and can't wait to see what 2018 has in store! Tell me...what was your fave subscription for 2017 and what are you hoping to try this year? I'd love to discover something new!
