December 2014 – Ipsy

This is my first post of 2015! It is crazy how time flies. I started this blog a year and a half ago. It started in one direction but has slowly moved in another direction. I hope to be able to spend some time figuring out a schedule of posts and add in some DIY and food posts like I used to post more of.

If any of you have suggestions about what you would like to see please let me know!

This month’s Ipsy theme was:

Nourish Organic Renewing Eye Cream – Full Size $15.00
I recently started using an eye cream which is only a sample size as well. I am excited to try this out after I run out of the other product!

Bumble and Bumble All-Style Blow Dry – Full Size $30.00
I would be more excited about this product if I actually blow dried my hair (I can’t even remember the last time I did). Bumble and Bumble is a nice brand though.

NYX Butter Lip Balm – $5.00
This is the third butter balm that I have by NYX. I have a love hate relationship with them. The first one I purchased almost a year ago showed every dry spot I had on my lips and wasn’t very moisturizing. The color application also went on very uneven. I got a second one that was a different shade (not so bold) and it was much better. This time I received the color Parfait which is a brighter pink. I apply a smoothing gloss and this on top and it seals in the moisture!

Pixi by Petra Fairy Dust – Full Size $10.00
At first I thought this was a highlighter. I did use this recently all over my lid (it was just a little too dark for that) but I actually like the stiffer sponge applicator. It helped glide the product on with no fall out.

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4 in 1 mascara – Full Size $20.00
This is probably what I was most excited about in this month’s bag. I posted in my Birchbox post that I have quite the stash of mascara to get through before I will be able to use this product. I have heard and read a lot of great reviews about it though!

What did you receive in your Ipsy bag?

    OOoooo! I’ve never used Bumble and Bumble either, but I’ve heard great things. The Paramore chick uses them, I was obsessed with her for a while 😉

    I’ll have to look into that because I blow dry the shit outta my hair ALL the time. Bout to choppity chop it this weekend though.

    Happy New Year girl!
