December Glam Bag Review



It's the last day of December...so I guess it's a good time to finally review December's bag, lol!

Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional Face Primer
This primer is nice...the bottle is super small but a little goes a long way. I do not use it on my entire face but more my T-zone area and the cheek area around my nose ( where my pores are larger ) The product smells great and really does smooth the appearance of larger pores. 

Tarte Cosmetics tartiest Glossy Lip Paint in WCW
I do not know how many times I have to mark "I do not like this product" on Ipsy to stop getting lip glosses/colors/scrubs/etc. I'm very fair skinned and I do not like lip color...hell, I rarely wear Chapstick! I ended up giving this lip color to my coworker Kyla. Looks great on her, but that doesn't help me none.

Cake Beauty Heavy Cream Intensive Hand Repair Balm
Another product I don't use often ( but probably should ) is hand cream. I wear gloves like it's my job...because it is. And because of THAT, my hands and cuticles get beat to hell. This hand cream literally smells like cake. Haha! To the point that one of my dogs got into this months Ipsy bag while we were away and dug their teeth straight into the thing. I use this product before bed sometimes. 

Aurora Intensively Precise Eyeliner in Cinnamon
I welcomed this eyeliner simply because it was a color OTHER than black. The fine-tip application is wonderful and it stays put. I still don't understand how girls can apply their eyeliner without pulling their eyelid taught, though. I watch these tutorials in awe.

OUAI Wave Spray
I still have yet to use this product, but an Instagram friend told me she loves it annnnnnd it smells really good. But since it's winter here in good ole PA, I tend to blowdry my hair instead of leaving it wet to airdry. I tend to NOT enjoy having a cold...

BONUS PRODUCT
m-61 PowerGlow Peel
I got these with my Ipsy Points. It came with 3 one-time-use wipes in the pack. Pretty much all you do is rub a sheet on your face for about a minute and then let it soak in. It felt wonderful but, of course, you can't do too much for your skin with only 3 applications. I do, however, have very sensitive skin and this product did not irritate it at all.

I have 3 more months of Ipsy bags and then it's time to decide if I want to renew for another year or not. If anyone has any other suggestions of monthly subscriptions that they enjoy, feel free to mention them in the comments. 

Happy New Year's Eve everyone, and be safe!
