Review: December Ipsy Glam Bag

NYC Extra Creamy Round Lipstick
The surprise of the bag, I actually really enjoyed this lipstick. The color was sheer, yet build-able and incredibly moisturizing. It didn't last incredibly long, but I personally don't mind reapplying lipstick throughout the day. I'm definitely considering adding a few more of these babies to my collection.

Be a Bombshell That One Stick
This just wasn't the right color for me. I like the concept of the product, but there's no way I'm putting that bright red anywhere near my cheeks when the blend-ability of this product isn't the best. Plus I don't see it being really easy to apply to my lips with it being a flat top, large blob of color.

POP Beauty Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Trio
This ended up being a pretty solid eye shadow trio. I found myself not using the middle shade all that much in the past month as it disappeared when placed on my lids. I wouldn't necessarily use this trio on its own, but could see myself borrowing a shade for a look here and there.

Nicka K New York Nail Color
The disappointment of the bag. The rose gold bottle and interesting dusty rose/brown color had me all sorts of intrigued and excited. Yet it was like as soon as the polish hit my nail it was already chipping. I'm not a fan of a polish I have to coddle with top coats and base coats and extra time drying, so this is definitely not a polish for me.

Mirabella Eye Blender Brush
Oh. my. goodness. This brush. Worth the price of the bag and so much more it's SO good!! I've ranted about it a few times before in videos and posts so I'll leave it at that. But damn.

What are your thoughts on the December Glam Bag?

  1. I own two those sticks and agree, they don't blend well at all. They are both super pigmented, but then you can't blend it! So annoying!

    1. I definitely like the concept, but it was just not good. Do you know of any other brands that do something like this?

  2. ooh thanks for sharing this!
