December Ipsy Glam Bag Review

December Ipsy Glam Bag- Mai Couture, NYX, Urban Decay, Mirabella, Be a Bombshell

This month I decided to start doing blog reviews for each bag/box I get each month to go along with the video that I post monthly on YouTube! So, let’s get started with Ipsy’s December bag. The bag itself was a slate gray with an Ipsy print liner on the inside, which was a cool touch! I think that added a lot of value to the bag compared to others. This bag came with 3 full sized products and 2 samples. Some Ipsy subscribers also received an Urban Decay Naked Beauty Balm sample that I’m super jealous of. Now, onto my reviews!

Be a Bombshell Hot Mess Lip Gloss– I didn’t use this product because I am not a huge lip gloss user and am so over receiving them in Ipsy’s bags! This was a bright red color.

Mirabella Eye and Face Primer– This primer is a clear silicone formula that can be used on face and eyes. I think it’s a decent primer for the face, but on my oily eyes it’s far too greasy and my eye makeup gets ridiculously creased. I’m not sure how it would work for those with dry eyelids, so keep me posted in the comments if you tried it!

NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Loose Pigment– I decided to toss this in my giveaway pile because I have a lot of eye shadows and this wasn’t a color I’d reach for frequently. NYX is a great brand, though!

Mai Couture Highlighter Papier– I like the idea of these a lot, and they’re a great size. The color is a medium toned highlighter, so on my light skin I can use it more as a blush. I would love it a lot more if it was a light champagne shade, because that’s what I like to highlight with! I do like this product, and I found that I can use the back side as an oil blotting paper, since that is how these are formulated. The only downside is that they leave a lot of excess product on my fingers so I have to wash my hands before moving on.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero– I love UD’s liners, and have had quite a few Zero’s pass through my hands and I loved it! It’s very black and stays on well. I haven’t been wearing much black liner lately, but if I do, I reach for this one frequently.

    I like this idea to post what you get in each box/bag. I'm not subscribed to any monthly boxes yet….so it'll be nice to be able to compare the different ones out there.

    I was hoping for a bit more… but then decided to unsubscribed after a year with them. I did get a lot of use with their summer bag, the one with hair products and philosophy moisturizer. :]

      Definitely! It's not for everyone. I like my little surprises monthly!
