December 2013 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

After continually being disappointed with Birchbox, I cancelled and signed up for Ipsy. I am SUPER pleased with my very first Ipsy Glam Bag. 

Every month the Ipsy Glam Bag arrives in an Ipsy makeup bag - this is GREAT for me, as I tend to destroy makeup bags in record time. Now I'll  be able to swap them out as needed. I really liked the makeup bag this month - and it's lined in red, very pretty!

Value $27.00
Mirabella Eye Blender eye shadow brush (FULL SIZE!). WOW this brush is great. I've never bought a blender brush, the ones I have are from smaller travel size brush sets, it's nice to have a full sized blender now. The brush has a stainless steel handle and it's a great weight when in your hand. 

Value $2.98
Salon Perfect Perfectly Natural lashes #53 (FULL SIZE!). Salon Perfect brand is apparently exclusive to Wal-Mart. These lashes actually look really nice and I'm surprised that they are so inexpensive. 

Value $7.20 /  $3.99
Pop Beauty Bright Up Your Life eye shadow trio in "Smokin Hot" - This is the teaser version of the 10 pan Bright Up Your Life palette - but good news for me, these are the colors from the 10 pan palette that I liked the most! 

J Cat Beauty Big Lip Pencil in Red Rose (FULL SIZE!). It seems to be a cross between a lipstick and a lip liner. I don't wear lipstick, ever - and red is WAY out of my comfort zone (I wore red lipstick to my company's Gatsby themed Holiday party this year and felt totally out of place - and found it really difficult to keep it on all night). I have a friend who looks amazing in red lipstick, so I'll be gifting this to her. 

Value $16.00
Be a Bombshell the One Stick in Sunset (FULL SIZE!). So this, as the name suggests, is a 3-in-1 product (blush, shadow, lip). I would look like death warmed over with this color on my eyelids, but I'll definitely be tossing it in my purse to use when I need a little color on the go. 

Final verdict? Ipsy Glam Bag is a HUGE hit! I paid $10 for my Glam Bag and it had a total value of $57.17 (not counting the makeup bag, that I would easily have paid $5 for). My January bag can't get here soon enough.
