December Glam Bag


I finally received my December glam bag from Ipsy. I didn’t think it was ever going to get here. I know Ipsy says that the December bags can be a little late because of the holiday’s, but it was over a week late, so I was worried it wasn’t coming.

When I opened the bag after it arrived, I discovered that it was missing an item. This was the second time that happened since I first signed up over a year ago. I contacted them, and they are shipping me the missing item.

The bag:
I think this is one of the prettiest ipsy bags I’ve gotten so far. I absolutely love the metallic silver with the aqua blue mixed in. It’s gorgeous and perfect for Winter.

Purlisse Beauty: Sheet Masks
I love face masks, especially sheet masks, so I was thrilled to get these in my bag. It was my favorite item this month. I like how you always get two of them whenever you get sheet masks. I used one already before I took the picture, so that’s why only one of them is pictured. The one I used was ginger & green tea, and I really liked it. It was soothing on my face, and my face looked and felt refreshed afterwards. I look forward to trying the coconut & rice one as well.

Ofra Cosmetics: Liquid Lipstick (shade ipsy unzipped)
Ipsy is notorious for sending me darker lip colors and shades of red, so I didn’t think I would care much for this one. Surprisingly, I really loved it. I ended up wearing it to my family gathering on Christmas Eve (but sadly didn’t get a good picture). It didn’t apply as dark as I thought it would, it didn’t dry out my lips, and it actually looked good on me.

Pixi by Petra: Mineral Duo (Orchid Ornament)
I haven’t even opened this one yet, and I’m not sure if I will. I like all of the Pixi products I’ve tried so far, but these eyeshadow shades are just not for me. I also have quite a few palette’s with basically the exact shades in them, so it just feels a little generic.

Chella: Eyebrow Defining Gel
I rarely do my eyebrows, but when I do I like to use a tinted powder to fill them in with. I tried this, but it really did nothing for me. It’s just a clear gel, and I think it’s supposed to help brow powders stick better, but I’ve never had an issue with that.

Smashbox Cosmetics: Always On Gel Liner (shade Fishnet)
This is the item that was missing from my bag, so I haven’t gotten to try it yet. It’s yet another black eyeliner though, so I can’t say I’m too excited. I have so many of them now, thanks to Ipsy. I do like Smashbox though.

  1. Aww what a bummer that they missed an item and it was late…now you have to wait longer for the last product! I’m glad you liked the lipstick and sheet masks at least! 🙂

    1. It looks kind of red in the photo, but it’s more of a pinkish purple color. I’m really impressed with it because it doesn’t dry my lips out at all. I would definitely try more of their lip creams. I’ve also used one of their bronzer/highlighters (two in one) before and it was amazing.

      1. It looks really pretty! I’ve heard good things about the formula from pretty much all of their stuff! I want to try out their highlighters.

  2. It’s such a shame that you are missing an item, but it seems like you have received some quite good items in this box, especially the lipstick – it’s great when a product turns out to be better quality than we expect:)

  3. I’m glad you got your bag finally, even though you are missing one. Wow! That’s disappointing. I love sheet masks but you didn’t like the brow gel? I thought it was a good product. I like the Pixi eyeshadows. I didn’t get that. Instead, I got the DSL eyeshadow crayon which is good too. My December morpheme brushes just came yesterday. I thought I wasn’t going to get them either. Anyway, I hope you had a good Christmas.

  4. omg i was hoping to get the ofra lippie but i’m happy with the smashbox one as well 🙂 and that sucks that you waited so long and an item was missing, luckily, ipsy’s customer service is so good they’ll replace broken items or send you whatever they forgot to put in there 🙂

  5. That sucks that your bag was not only late, but missing an item! This was my first glam bag from them, and it was also almost a week late. I got a few of the same items you did (the face masks, which I really liked. The eye shadow, which I also liked, but I don’t have as many eye shadows as you lol. And the smashbox eye liner you didn’t get – I also liked it). Actually I think they did a good job for my first bag, but I’m sure after awhile if you get similar items all the time it can start to get redundant! I really did like the bag color
