December Ipsy Glam Bag – Snow Globe Reveal

Why I do ipsy.

So, I enjoy ipsy, a lot. I think it is so cool that there is a place out there that basically sends you a few little surprises once a month. I think it is healthy for us to pamper ourselves. Ipsy allows us to do so, without spending too much money. Who doesn’t love receiving a package in the mail for themselves? I know I sure do! Ipsy is something to look forward to each month. And the day you get your package is sort of magical. That’s why I do ipsy: as an expression of self-love and magic.

The Glam Bag – Snow Globe.

I gotta say, I love this month’s bag. I prefer silver to gold, and I super love the mint lining. It’s so pretty, and perfectly whimsical. It goes well with the vibe of this month. Also, it looks so pretty with my snowy nails! 😉

My thoughts…

So far, I have only tried out the Lisa Frank Eyeshadow. When I first opened my Glam Bag, I was thinking “OMG this is going to be a bright blue, or neon green!” I don’t like colors like that. I prefer more Earthy tones. But when I opened the box, it looked like this:

I was quite pleased with this color. I like tones like this because my eyes are green and colors like this make them pop more. I put it on, and really fell in love with how smooth is was. However, the color was still pretty bright. I ended up dimming it down, by putting another, darker, shadow on the outside corner of my lids, then I put a glitter shadow over both colors. The end product came out looking pretty good, but unfortunately, I don’t have a picture to show for it.

Otherwise, I am super excited to try the Cosmoholic Liquid Lipstick. There is a little mirror on the side of the tube, which is so cool. I hate trying to put on even lip balm without a mirror. And I love “coffee” tones, especially for my lips. Also, this lipstick smells really good. I so much prefer sweet-smelling lipsticks to chemical-smelling ones.

As far as the hair oil, mascara, and eyeliner go, I am okay with receiving them. I got a hair oil last month in my ipsy bag, so I don’t really need another one right now. However, I do like Ouai. I don’t usually wear straight up black eyeliner, so I am not sure how often I will use this one. But I really love Smashbox mascara, so I am hoping their eyeliner is good too. And for the M.A.C. mascara, again, I received a mascara last month, so I wasn’t hoping for another one. But hey, at least I am stocked up right? Plus, it will be fun to see which I end up liking more.

The point is, ipsy is fun. And I enjoy taking the pictures, and writing these posts. ♥

Reviews will most likely be posted shortly!
