Ipsy December Bag 2016

Hello!

I wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year! I recently activated my Ipsy subscription again. Ipsy is a subscription service that sends you five deluxe or full sized beauty samples. It's $10 a month. You can sign up using my link here if you'd like.



MintPear Beauty Blending Sponge

This was not soft at all!  I ran it under water hoping it would soften up, but nope! It blended out my foundation okay, but I'd prefer the original beauty blender over this. It also had a strange chemical smell.


Benefit Cosmetics The Porefessional

This is a face primer I highly recommend! It helps erase the look of any pores I may have. It goes on silky and creates the perfect base for my foundation to glide over. This primer also helps my foundation or BB cream last longer.

Josie Maran Argan Enlightenment Illuminizer

You can wear this alone, or mix this into your favorite foundation/moisturizer. The pump dispensed a bit too much product for my liking. It doesn't feel thick on the skin. It looks like I have a natural glow from within. I do have oily skin, so this product did highlight that as the day wore on. I still enjoy this product though.

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Serum

This was a generous sample. It's supposed to smooth, brighten, and exfoliate the skin. It has 4% glycolic acid. My skin does look a tad brighter, but the serum has a strong citrus scent. It left my skin with a sticky feeling as well.

Ciate London Matte Liquid Velvet Lipstick

I honestly thought I was going to hate this shade on me, but I ended up loving it! The liquid lipstick was comfortable and long wearing. I needed just one swipe of this! I got precise application thanks to the lip applicator. It also dries quickly. I received this in the shade "Pin Up", which is a berry shade.

  1. That lipstick is a pretty shade! It's always a nice surprise when you think you won't like a shade but end up loving it lol! That highlight looks pretty! I've been curious about nip + fab products, but I wouldn't want my skin to be sticky after a serum!

    1. It always is a nice surprise. Yeah I haven't seen too many good reviews on their products. I was hoping I'd like the serum, but I can't stand my face being sticky either.

  2. The Josie Maran highlight looks amazing, such a gorgeous shade. Shame that it dispenses too much product as that's always such a waste. Happy New Year x

  4. You got a really good bag, Lupe! I traded almost all of my products but now that I see how pretty the swatch for Pin Up, I really regret trading it away. :-( I love Ciate liquid lipstick formula.

  5. I've used most of these products except the serum. For some reason I cannot use many of Benefit's products I have an allergic reaction, but I loved their mascara. This sounds like a pretty decent bag! Thanks for sharing. <3
