Another month, another Ipsy bag. Okay, I know that’s not a thing at all, but just go with it. 2015 is coming to a close and I have no idea where this hell this year went, but I’m trying to cheer myself up with makeup. Alright, I do that in a lot of situations.
Anyway, before this turns into some weird Makeup Addicts Anonymous post, let’s get into why I’m really sitting here today. I received my Ipsy glam bag in the mail at last! Usually I get my Ipsy bag a week before now, but I think with all the holiday stuff going on everything has been slowed down a wee bit.
First off, the bag is very festive. It’s just a shiny red bag, but I actually dig it. I think red is such a classic shade, and the material is the kind that will make this bag toddler proof so I can put it in my purse.
So, what’s in my last Ipsy bag of 2015? Continue reading if you want to find out…
First off, if you’re unfamiliar with Ipsy, they’re a beauty subscription that arrives every month and costs $10. Typically, there’s a mixture of high end and indie brand makeup, some full sized and some deluxe sample sized. My biggest tip is to review your products every month. It does make a difference in your bags. I’ve been getting more high end samples the past few months, and I think it’s because I consistently review all products. I’ve personally been subscribed for a little over 2 years now.
Clark’s Botanicals deep moisture mask- This is a pretty decent sized sample for a mask. I know I have mentioned my skin type before, but my skin gets dryer than a snake’s in Winter. I can’t wait to try this mask out!
Peter Lama’s Hand Cream- Not gonna lie, Peter Lama sounds like a former celebrity name that I should be seeing in weird late night infomercials. This hand cream smells nice, but I already have so many hand creams to use up. However, I will probably end up using this one. Have you ever felt your hands in the winter after washing dishes for 30 mins straight? It’s awful, and I feel uncomfortable thinking about it.
Tarte Cosmetics Smooth Operator Powder- I was really happy to see this in my bag! I love Tarte cosmetics, but I don’t always have the money to splurge on their face products. I’ve been wanting to try this baking thing all the kids have been raving about, so I may get to try it now!
Pacifica Power of Love Natural Lipstick- This is a full sized product that everyone received this month, and I got the shade Nudie Red, which is a lovely brownish red color. I haven’t tried many natural lipsticks, but I love Pacifica! The packaging is really freakin’ cute too. I love the hearts all over the tube.
Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Primer- I have so many eye primers, but it is something I use everyday. I’ve never been disappointed with any Elizabeth Mott product I’ve received, so I will try this one out as well. Maybe this one can replace my Too Faced one once I use it up. The Too faced primer is raved about, but it dries my eyelids out terribly.
Colourpop Shadow in Stereo- I had some points to redeem, and was able to snag a Colourpop shadow before everyone else got one! I almost always miss out on cool rewards, so I was happy to get this one since I already love Colourpop so much. I also got a Luxie shadow single, but I put that in my z palette and forgot to include it in the photo. Whoops. Stereo is a really shimmery dark burgundy though, which is a shade I wear very often.
Well, that’s everything I got in my bag this month!

Wow this looks like the best bag and samples Ipsy has sent in awhile! You’ll have to let us know how you like the Tarte sample, cause I’m with you on the price!
I will probably post a review on it since it’s a high end sample! I’m really impressed with their samples lately! I wish Tarte things weren’t so pricey, because I’ve wanted to try one of their foundations forever now.
Honestly, I like their Amazonian Clay foundation but even the lightest shade is very yellow. You should definitely get a sample! The Ulta Demi-Matte foundation is quite similar though. They are both very thick, so I’d also suggest maybe trying that one out to see if you like the texture.
