The theme this month is “Celebration,” in reference to the holiday season and upcoming New Years Eve. This bag is a black, diamond patterned clutch containing a variety of fun products.
First up are the Andrea Strip Lashes, which are thick, luscious false eyelashes! These are definitely New Years Eve worthy, and would be a bit too much for a normal day. If they work well, i’ll post pictures after NYE!
One of these English Laundry Signature Fragrances unfortunately was broken or partially opened and spilled within my bag, but I’m not too heartbroken. I’m picky when it comes to perfume, and while these smell nice, they’re not my style.
I really like this J.Cat Beauty Big Lip Pencil as it’s not quite red or pink, but a more muted, peachy red and not like anything I have. Lip crayons must be the rage this year because I am all stocked up on them!
This POP Beauty Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Trio is definitely my speed in terms of colors.. I am the smokey eye queen! While I do own a LOT of eyeshadow and definitely don’t need anymore, I like the quality of Pop Beauty and will find a way to use or gift this.
My final item is the Be a Bombshell The One Stick in Girl Crush. This is a bit more pink and a little lighter than I would prefer, but it may work as a highlighter to contrast with my bronzer as I don’t think I’ll be using it as lipstick.
All in all, this was just an okay Ipsy Glambag. I thought we’d be getting a confetti popper (based on the spoilers) but we did not, and in general I didn’t want or need eyeshadow or perfume, so those were not my favorite.. however I will definitely use the J. Cat Lip Pencil and Andrea Lashes. I would love to see a variety of new and/or higher end products and brands, like Benefit, Buxom and BeDelectable, which were in past bags.
The only item I’m bummed I didn’t get is the NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick, just because I love them, and I originally was interested in the Demeter Snow Perfume Oil Roll On, until I heard that it was quite an unpleasant scent.
