Yep, I’m totally behind with sharing my beauty subscription bags from last month. With everything going on around the holidays I decided to put the blog on the back burner for a bit.
But now we’re clear to start ramping it back up around here. And boy do i have a lot of new goodies to share with you all!
But first let’s take a quick peek at my December 2014 Ipsy bag. Not crazy about the plain black bag for the holiday month but I thought the pink Ipsy heart was a cute added touch.
You may notice that my bag included an extra item this month. That’s because I redeemed 500 of my review points for a free J Cat lip paint.
Here’s what came in December’s Ipsy:
Swissco Precision Beauty Eyelash Curler ($5) – Love the bright metallic purple color of this one! It has a nice size and shape to it and works well.
Beauty Without Cruelty Facial Cleanser ($2.23) – 100% vegan and paraben free. A soap free cleanser to remove dead skin cells, impurities and excess oil. Smells really nice and should work well with my Clarisonic.
NYX Butter Lip Balm in Marshmallow ($4) – I already own this (review & swatches here) so I didn’t want to open this one up. These are basically light lip balms with just a hint of color.
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara ($8.33) – I’m already a huge fan of this mascara. It gives both added volume and length to my lashes. Love it!
Pixi Fairy Dust in Brightening Bare ($10) – A very fine loose powder pigment in a light nude color with a satin finish. I already used this and it looks really nice on my eyelids for a quick and subtle bit of color.
Points Reward: J Cat Wonder Lip Paint in Mad Splatter ($4.99) – These are liquid lipsticks/stains in highly pigmented colors. I received Red Potion in my November bag and love it!
A small dot is enough to do your entire lips and once it wears off you’re still left with some stained color. Mad Splatter is a medium pink berry color with a very fine blue glittery reflex.
This was a really good month for me. I enjoy all of the products and am now able to share the NYX lip balm with someone who will enjoy it too! The retail value of my bag came to $29.56, not including the lip paint points reward.
