December 2014 Ipsy Unboxing!

I noticed the brush is missing from my shot! oops! It was probably on the bottom of my bag. Sorry. But it is highlighted below 🙂

This month’s theme is Thinking of You. When I opened my envelope, it was all squished inside, and having seen a few openings, I am not the only one. The bag is, well, let’s just say that if I had a young daughter, I would give it to her to play with. There are other months where the bags are great and they are good quality, this is not one of those months. However, I do like the colour of it! I can see that it would be hard and awkward to get things inside, the bag is already creased. Meh.

Pixi by Petra Fairy Dust in Medium Nude Sheen

“Perfect to use dry for a sheer effect, or wet for intense colour. The illuminating powder pigments give concentrated glow & enhancing color instantly. The mica provides dense natural pigment and the pearl powder rejuvenates & brightens. “

I am not a big fan of Pixi products and when I opened this, I didn’t realize that the product was supposed to be dry. I thought it was a cream shadow and since there was no seal on it, that it had dried out. But no, its supposed to be dry and it is a glitter type thing to put on top of other colours. It has tons of fallout and the applicator is not practical. The packaging is cheap and it is just not my type of product.

tarte Light, Camera, Lashes Mascara

“Like a pushup bra for your lashes, tarte’s best-selling mascara lengthens, curls, volumizes and conditions to deliver a 330% increase in lash volume instantly. The high-performance formula is also infused with naturally-derived olive esters to help nourish and protect lashes.”

Haven’t tried this yet but I am SUPER excited for it. I love getting these in my Ipsy bags.

Coolway Boost Repair Treatment

“Boost Repair infuses moisture into your hair and locks it in with a unique blend of Silk Protein and Botanical extracts, providing silky-smooth, shiny, frizz-free hair that will hold for days. Clinically tested to reduce hair breakage by 75% and strengthen hair up to four times.”

I am not huge on hair products and I will just be passing this on. It does smells super good though 🙂

NYX Cosmetics Butter Lip Balm in Lady Fingers

“This Buttery Lip Balm is addictively soft and scrumptious and perfect for adding a subtle hint of color for a naturally flirtatious pout. Apply directly to bare lips or apply it over lip liner for more intense color.”

I am a fan of NYX and one of my favourite lip glosses of all time are the NYX Butter Lip Gloss. So I was SUPER happy to see this in my bag. I love lip balm and sometimes you just need a nice one with a tint in it. This one delivers. The tint is just enough, it feels great on the lips, it smells great. Love it. Winner!

Crown Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush

“This dual-ended brush offers the best of both worlds. The shadow brush is perfect for applying eye shadow or contouring the eye, while the crease brush is designed to be used dry for defining the eye, or wet for precision concealing.”

This brush is good. I have only tried it twice so hard to do a full review on it. However, I can say that the bristles are soft and don’t feel cheap. I like the dome side of the brush since I don’t have a brush of this type. I don’t typically like 2-sided brushes since they are a pain to store, but I was happy with this in my bag this month.

In all, I like 3 out of 5 of the items in my ipsy bag this month, so I consider that a win 🙂

Did you get any of these items? If so, what did you think about them?
