December Ipsy

I was surprised to see my Ipsy bag in the mailbox Saturday. I got the shipping confirmation e-mail just Friday, so I really wasn't expecting it until the beginning of the week. This months theme was Celebrate... kind of an obvious choice for the month of December. I love this months bag; black, classy, I could use it as a small clutch for a holiday party if I wanted to. Way better than some of the funky bags I've gotten recently. 
Nicka K New York Nail Polish in Ripe Apple ($4.99)- I was so glad I got the red color, since the other option was taupe... not my style. I definitely need to apply this polish after Fynn goes to bed some night this week. It's a cheerful bright red. Perfect for this time of the year!

Demeter Snow roll on perfume oil ($10)-I really like this scent. Clean and fresh, and not at all overpowering. Drew liked it too when I had him smell it. I like the nice little roll on applicator too, makes it easy to use just a little. 

Be a Bombshell The One Stick in Girl Crush ($16)- This stick is pretty much an all-in-one color. It can be used on the eyelids, cheeks or lips to give them a pretty pink shimmer. I love the color I got, Girl Crush is just the right shade for me; a subtle and pretty pink.

Pop Beauty Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Trio ($7.20)- I have a lot of eye shadow, that I hardly ever use, so I wasn't all that excited to see this in my bag. That said, I do love the three shades I got, they are exactly the shades I do wear when I wear eye shadow. 

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in B52 ($4)- I have a LOT of dark lipsticks these days from various subscription boxes and sponsors, so I wasn't psyched to get more. I do like that this isn't a bright, bright red color, since I have a ton of that... I just don't know if I'll actually end up using this. That said, I love the texture of this lipstick. It's creamy and feels great on my lips, like a really nice lip balm. If it were a sheerer color, I would probably wear it every day. 

This months Ipsy bag was valued at $42.19 not including the bag. As always, worth way more than the 10 I pay each month (which include shipping and handling) which is why I love it.
