Unboxing, Ipsy Glam Bag December 2016

Happy Boxing Day to my fellow Canadians! I hope that you all had a fantastic holiday with your family and friends! What did you get?! What did you get?! I may do a separate post of items I received at Christmas, we will see…

Anyways, on to Ipsy!

Price: $10.00 USD (plus $4.95 shipping to Canada) Number of items: 5 (+ a cute bag).

Ipsy is a monthly subscription service that introduces customers to new hair and beauty products. This month’s theme is Carpe P.M., it centres around living in the moment. I like the red bag but not really into the fuzzy texture.ipsy_lbl_dec20161I received my bag in the middle of December but was super busy with the holiday season that I held on to putting up a post, I figured I might as well do this post now before I totally miss the month.

Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer

Full Size: $26.00 (10mL), Sample Size: $13.00 (5mL)

This instantly gives any lip shade a smooth matte finish. It got a lot of hype when it first came out but that has since died down. I’m intrigued to give it a try!


Royal & Langnickel MODA Angle Shader Brush

Full Size: $8.12, this is full size

I love using angled brushes in the crease and this one looks really nice. It’s made with vegan friendly synthetic fibres which are soft to the touch. I also like the barrel because it has a rubber grip texture that makes it easy to hold. I was checking out other brushes online and I’m really impressed with how cheap these brushes are, I have two of them so far far from Ipsy and I’m super impressed with them.


Symphony Beauty Snow Cream Moisturizer

Full Size: $19.99 (100mL), Sample Size: $2.71 (10mL)

This gel-like moisturizer has vitamin E to nourish and brighten the skin. I really like the texture of this because it’s really light and airy and melts right into the skin.


Hakari Liner in Iris

Full Size: $20.32, this is a full size item

This is a deep purple eyeliner which is pretty awesome because I’ve gotten tired of receiving black. This is will look really nice with a gold or brown lid colour for a little extra something. This has a stiff upper tip that doesn’t bend to create a precise lines.


NYX Professional Makeup Prismatic Shadow in Firebolt

Full Size: $7.99, this is a full size item

This is a pretty reddish-rose shade which looks to be pretty sparkly. I look forward to using this all over the lid.


My Thoughts

I do like the items received in this bag. They are really fun colours I can use to create pretty eye looks with. Total Value of the bag; $52.14.

What did you get in Ipsy this month?

Lots of Luv,

    • Ipsy is a great monthly bag and it’s very reasonably priced- even when I take into account the conversion to Canadian dollars and the shipping. It introduces you to new brands but also new products from brands you might already know. I always suggest to try a subscription for 3 months, if you like it then you can continue and if you don’t then just cancel 🙂
