Ipsy Bag: December

It's the end of my first year subscription to Ipsy (formerly MyGlam). It's been kinda interesting seeing this company's ups and hiccups through its first year. I've enjoyed the growing community, as well as the videos that show how to use each product. December's bag is themed Happy Haute Holidays, hearkened back to the last year's first bag, and had several repeating brands from bags past (3 brands in this bag were also in last December's bag). Each brand mentioned has a discount with it as well, should I desire to purchase more. Everything is full-sized this month. Here's what's in the bag:


  • Silver silk zip bag--A cute little makeup bag
  • NYX loose pearl shadow--This loose pigment is so gorgeous and wonderful for the holidays. My sister, my mom, and I wore it this past weekend at my sister's wedding. While pigments can be messy, they are a versatile product. I can wet the pigment for a more intense look (it's intense already), use as an eyeliner, and even turn it into a polish! NYX has been featured a couple of times on Ipsy, but that's fine with me, as I am a huge NYX fan.
  • Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner--This is my favorite Kohl eyeliner pencil, so I was thrilled to received this black liner. UD was in the first Ipsy bag. 
  • Mai Couture Highlight Paper--Another brand featured in the first bag. Last year, I received the blotting papers and a sample of the highlight paper. Simply wipe a sheet onto the areas you'd like highlighted. A great travel product.
  • Mirabella Primer--This brand was in September's bag. This primer has silicone, allowing shadow and foundation a smooth base, and the primer is thinner than Smashbox's. This is perfect for travel as well.
  • Be a Bombshell Lipgloss--A red lipgloss is a great alternative to red lipstick, which can be daunting and austere. The gloss is moisturizing and has decent staying power. This brand was featured in October's Ipsy bag.

  1. Wow, that is an awesome bag this month. I thought about signing up for my glam bag but I am not that into beauty subscriptions. You guessed it, I am all about the nail polish :). I am glad that you have enjoyed your bag.
