There Hi! Happy Saturday everyone! Hope you all are having a wonderful start of your Saturday. We started the day with ice and freezing rain. So, I thought I will take full advantage of the weather, sip on hot chocolate and write my review on the December Ipsy glam bag.
Description: The December Ipsy Glam bag came in a hot pink envelop. When you open the envelop you get this beautiful fuzzy makeup bag that doubles as a wristlet going-out clutch! Inside the wristlet, I got Nyx prasmatic eyeshadow in Fireball PS09, Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick in Pin Up, Jersey Shore Cosmetics Peppermint Moisture Rich Hydrating Balm, Tarte Maracuja Oil, and Hikari Liquid Eye Liner.
Nyx prasmatic eyeshadow in Fireball PS09: Give your eyes extra sparkle and dimension with a fully pigmented metallic texture with NYX Cosmetics Prismatic Eye Shadow. The ingredients include Magnesium Stearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Nylon-12, Octyldodecanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol. May Contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499), Carmine (CI 75470), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), and Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI 77510).
Verdict: This shadow is easy to blend, very pigmented and with primer it will last all day. The color in this shadow is amazing, and it is so easy to work with. This is a good collection. I went online to check for the price, and is available for $6 at Ulta. The fireball color is current sold out. However, for that price, it is a good shadow to have.
Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick in Pin Up: Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick combines highly-pigmented, gorgeous matte, long-wearing lip color with hyaluronic acid for its intense lip-conditioning benefits so that lips appear fuller, while feeling more supple and smooth. The creamy, non-drying lip formula is infused with Ciaté London’s proprietary blend of moisturizing Plush Pigment, and it features high-performance pigments that glide on to lips for bold color and extreme hold. The innovative precision tip effortlessly lines and fills in lips for perfect application. The lipstick is paraben, phthalates, and sulfates free.
Verdict: I love the color of the lip creme. It would look good on anyone. It goes on so smoothly and is really well-pigmented. This lipstick is long wearing, non drying and there is no fading in the inner lip area. I have another of this from the Ciate London Chloe Morello Beauty Haul Makeup Set. I am glad that now I have two of this beautiful love liquid lipstick and I will use it.You can get the lipstick for $19.
Jersey Shore Cosmetics Peppermint Moisture Rich Hydrating Balm: Sopranos, Cake Boss, table flipping Housewives… and all natural skincare. Who knew Jersey had so much to offer? New Jersey mom and beauty vet Jacquelyn Foster Quattro created Jersey Shore Cosmetics to offer safe, high-quality natural cosmetics and skincare. Her goal is to help her customers look good and make healthy choices. Champagne wishes and candy cane dreams. We’re toasting the holidays with the delish scent of peppermint and super soft pouts. Now all we need is the mistletoe. With ingredients like organic sunflower oil, organic beeswax, organic cocoa butter, organic coconut oil, organic peppermint eo, and vitamin e this is a good balm to have.
Verdict: I really like the feel of this lip balm and I love that it’s all natural and organic. Your lip stay smooth for 4 to 5 hours. eos is still my favorite but this is a good lip balm. I love the peppermint feeling. The peppermint was nice and mild, very smooth and hydrating. I am glad that Ipsy has introduced me to the Jersey shore hydrating balm. Get the balm for $10.
Tarte Maracuja Oil: This is a treatment oil that targets individual skin concerns and delivers balanced moisture for firmer, brighter, and smoother-looking skin. Rich in essential fatty acids known to recharge and replenish skin, Maracuja Oil works to rejuvenate and deliver an even-toned complexion while its infusion of vitamin C creates the appearance of brighter skin. This powerful elixir supports antiaging and provides instant hydration—quenching dry skin without leaving it feeling greasy or filmy. The oil is paraben, phthalates, and sulfates free.
Verdict: The oil soaks into your skin, it won’t leave your face oily. This oil is helping my skin. I use it after applying my toner, and serum but before using my moisturizer. Sometimes if I am feeling lazy and want to skip a step I just mix it in with my moisturizer and it still does an amazing job. I have tried it for the past few days and I am loving it. The sample size cost just $15.
Hikari Liquid Eye Liner: The final product that I have received in my December Ipsy Glam bag is Hikari Liquid Eye Liner in Iris. Named after the Japanese word for “light,” they bring us flashy colors and high-impact formulas to create any look we like. Whether we’re feeling a little bit boho or a lotta bit glam, there’s a makeup kit that has us covered. Everyday beauty and big nights out—Hikari is always here to help us shine. Why let gold and silver have all the fun? Up your holiday eye game with a bold sweep of this deep violet shade.
Verdict: The liner goes on smoothly. However, the shade really isn’t for me. If you like the purple shade then this eyeliner is absolutely for you. Get it for $15.
