Jersey Shore Spa Anti Aging Lip & Hand Polish
This polish couldn’t have come at a better time! My hands have been suffering from the harsh, cold, winter weather, and these product has done a wonderful job at revitalizing my sad skin. The brown sugar crystals gently exfoliate your skin, while coconut oil moisturizes and leaves your hands feeling super soft. Bonus – it’s all natural, so if you use it on your lips, too, it tastes great (you can see me giving it a try in my video below)!

Chella Lip Pencil in Passionate Pink
Chella: hello, beautiful! This soft, reddish-pink colour glides on smoothly and leaves your lips looking perfectly kissable. This product lasted far longer than your average moisturizing lip colour, and the colour is the perfect shade for a daytime look.

Naked Cosmetics Mica Pigment Powder in Sierra Nevada
This soft, pigmented powder is the perfect addition to finish off your eye shadow look. It can be used sparingly for just a hint of shimmer during the day, or amped-up for a glamourous evening look. I love adding it when I use my neutral brown and bronze shadows.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil
I was very weary of trying this product when I read the word ‘oil’ in the name. I hate (yes, I know that is a strong word) applying greasy or oily products to my face, so I applied this product with caution. But before I even had a chance to complain, it had completely absorbed into my skin, and my foundation glided on with ease. I am a newly converted believer in primer oils!

Luxie Flat Definer Brush
I am always thrilled to see a new makeup brush in my ipsy bag – a brush alone is usually worth the cost of the entire bag! This vegan, cruelty-free brush is super soft and is perfect for applying my gel eyeliner. And if you head over to their site and sign up for their email list, you will receive a coupon code for 20% your order. Score!

IPSY’S DECEMBER GLAM BAG

This month’s Glam Bag was all about love from the Ipsy team. Along with a cute thank you note, this red, quilted bag was filled with some fabulous goodies, and sealed with a kiss…zipper pull.

Jesse’s Girl Nail Polish in Pin-Up Girl
This is the second Jessie’s Girl product that I’ve received in my Ipsy bags (the last was an eye shadow primer that you can see here). I was a big fan of the primer, so I was excited to see their name on another on of my goodies. This is quickly becoming one of my favourite polishes – it’s super shiny, and this shade of pink will look good on anyone! I’ve had it on for about a week now, with very minimal chips (score!),

Pacifica Power Of Love Lipstick in Nudie Red
Not only does this lipstick slide over your lips like a dream, this little tube packs a powerful message. With the idea that lipstick can change the world, for every lipstick purchased, Pacifica will give one to a woman in need.

Peony Cosmetics Shadow Trio
I was hoping this month’s bag would yield something sparkly for the holidays, and this shadow trio definitely delivered! The bronze shade adds the perfect touch of glimmer, and the kaolin clay helps absorb excess oils, so your party look will last all night long…dancing and all.

Lather Honey Moisture Mask
Truth be told, I have yet to use this mask. After indulging in treats over the holidays, my skin has been breaking out. When that happens, I go for something with astringent properties. But I’m excited to have this mask in my arsenal for when the cold winter weather starts to dry out my skin. I’m sure it will work wonders! Have you tried this mask yet? Let me know if you liked it!

Klorane Floral Water Makeup Remover
I can always use more eye makeup remover – it’s one of the products I use in my daily cleansing routine, so I go through it very quickly. I swapped this product for my regular version, and was pleasantly surprised. It wasn’t greasy and it removed my mascara with ease. I’ll be using this one until it’s all gone!
