Ipsy Glam Bag December 2013

My very first Ipsy bag!

I recently joined the Ipsy monthly subscription bag. I have always worn makeup but I never really used much of it. I would love to have a bigger collection of products and I thought this would be a good way to do it! I decided against doing a video for this bag because I couldn’t help opening it up as soon as I got it and trying everything on! I actually wasn’t a HUGE fan of everything in the box but I did enjoy a few of the products and the bag itself, which you can see in the photo is really cute. I’m just going to list the products and tell you what I thought of each one.


1. Mirabella – Eye Blender Brush: “The Mirabella Eye Blender Brush fuses eyeshadow to create a naturally sculpted eye. Tapered domed shape provides flawless and easy application. Hand-sculpted brush is made with the finest quality materials and features exclusive brushed aluminum ferrule and handle.” -Ipsy I am very happy that I got this brush, I was in need of a blending brush, I’m still working on my brush collection! I have used it and it works well.

2. Be a Bombshell – The One Stick: “An all-in-one multiple stick with a smooth texture. Apply to eyelids, cheeks or lips for the perfect pop of color anywhere!” -Ipsy When I first saw this in the bag I was REALLY excited. I love the packaging, I love the name, and the color was really cute (I got “Girl Crush”). However I’m not really sure I’m a fan. I can see using this as a blush, it only takes a little. I tried using it on my lips and it just did not glide well and looked odd on me. So I wasn’t really so happy with it but I’m going to play around with it and see what I can do!

3. J.Cat Beauty – Big Lip Pencil: “The Big Lip Pencil is a hydrating and vibrant lipstick as well as a sculpting lip liner. It’s destined to be in your makeup collection!” -Ipsy I got the color “Red Rose” which is bold for me! I toned it down a little bit and wore it during the holidays. I’m pretty sure that is the only time of year I can get away with wearing it though!

4.POP Beauty – Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Trio: “This palette of hues adds definition & intensity to lids, creating a broad range of looks that complements all eye colours. From brightening bare to sultry smoke, these hues blend smoothly onto the lid, adding a veil of silky luster that will outlive the day or night!” -Ipsy I kind of wish that I had gotten the neutral browns instead because I already have smokey palettes like this one but I do like it and have used it. So far so good!


5.Jesse’s Girl – JulieG Holiday Frosted Gum Drops: “This holiday season, this sparkling purple textured treat will have visions of sugar plums dancing in your head – and on your nails!” -Ipsy I love this polish! I got the color: Sugar Plum Fairy. I only did one coat and the polish chipped after a day or so. I think if you used more coats it may last longer. You are advised to not use a base or top coat if you want that gum drop texture. I thought it was really cute and fun for the holiday season. I really wish it had been in an emerald green or dark red so that it was more festive for Christmas but it was still very cute.
