I know we're in 2019 already, but my December Ipsy bag still needs love, attention, and affection.
This month's bag was extra special because everyone received six items instead of the usual five
(thank you Ipsy).
As per usual, let's talk about the bag design.
I'll be honest, at first I thought I would hate it, because i'm not a fan of tacky looking sequins.
You know what though?
It's actually not half bad.
We got party in the front,
and business in the back.
Now let's break down what's inside:
First up we got not one, but THREE K-beauty holiday sheet masks from The Creme Shop:
Oh Deer! Detoxifying Lemon Sheet Mask is made with lemon extract that rids your skin of toxins, removes blackheads, and calms inflammation.
Clarifying Peppermint Cocoa Sheet Mask helps control excess oil production and fights breakouts with peppermint oil.
Let It Glow (Snowman) Ultra-Moisturizing Jojoba Oil Sheet Mask hydrates, softens, and smooths.
I've tried this brand of masks before,
and they're not bad.
They're quite affordable,
and you can find them in places like
Marshall's or Tj Maxx if you're in the states.
(Retail price: $3/mask)
Next up we have this beautiful
35E tapered blending brush from F.A.R.A.H.
This was the freebie that all ipsters received this month, and a sista couldn't be happier.
More brushes in my collection means I have to wash my brushes less frequently lol.
(Retail price: $10)
Next up we have: more brushes!
If you've followed my Ipsy posts for a while, you've probably noticed that I get
a lot of brushes and sheet masks.
This is because I always rate them highly
and ask for more every time I review them
on my Ipsy profile.
I've gotten a bunch of Luxie brushes from Ipsy already, and I love them.
I like how small this 243 blending brush is because it gives me more control over smaller areas.
(Retail Price: $12)
Next up we have the
Glitter Flip liquid lipstick from Ciate London.
Upon first glance I thought, meh, I already have so many of these shades, but wait, there's more!
So at first it applies like a normal matte lip...

But then when you press your lips together, a bunch of sparkles start to appear transforming it into a glitter/metallic lip.
The more you keep pressing,
the more sparkly your lips get.
(Retail Price: $19 full size)
Next up we got a liquid highlighter
from Pacifica Beauty.
I personally prefer liquid highlighters over powder ones, so thank you Ipsy for that.
From the design of it,
I thought it was a lipgloss at first.
I'm not the biggest fan of
Pacifica Beauty in general because I find their products have a weird smell to them,
I am a sucker for everything holographic.
I received the shade "Unicorn", and it's a pretty reflective baby pink color.
(Retail price: $13 full size)
Lastly, I got this loose eyeshadow
from Steve Laurant.
I wanted to like it because the packaging is so pretty, I really did, but...
I just can't stand loose eyeshadows.
They're so messy that I never reach for them no matter how pretty they are.
(Retail Price: $18)
And that concludes what's in this month's bag.
Overall, I would rate the bag a 5/5 this month.
