December 2015 Ipsy

This month’s Ipsy bag took FOREVER to get here!  I don’t think I’ve ever received it this late.  I was starting to worry something had gone wrong.

Thankfully, I went out to my mail box this morning and there was that beautiful pink mailer!  Better late than never right?

Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription that is $10.  It contains makeup, skin care, hair products and other beauty related items.  You take a beauty quiz first and they pick out 5 products for you each month.

The theme this month is:  “With Love From Ipsy.”

I love the little caricaturesof all the Ipsy stylists.  I think they nailed each girls personality and image exactly!

I think the bag is cute and festive…but it did remind me more of Valentines’ than Christmas…especially with the lip zipper (which is super cute!)



Lather Honey Moisture Mask Sample:  Full Size =$22


A super-hydrating mask to relieve stressed skin that has been over-exposed to environmental pollutants and nature’s harsh elements. Specially blended with propolis extract, natural honey, nourishing minerals and vitamins, this mask revitalizes the skin’s texture with deep-penetrating nutrients. Paraben-free.

  • Moisturizing
  • Nourishing
  • Soothing


As you guys know, I have to be really careful with skin care products due to my sensitive skin.  I’m thinking I may just pass this one on to a friend.

The interesting think about this face mask is that you don’t rinse it off.  You allow it to sink into your skin for 20 minutes and then rub any excess into your skin.  How cool is that?


 Skinn Cosmetics Sugar Lips Polish Scrub Sample:  Full Size=$20


This lip polish is made with real sugar and a special butter blend that will gently scrub and exfoliate flaky, chapped lips to reveal a sweet and smooth finish.

  • Made with sugar and butter
  • Gently exfoliates flaky and chapped lips


My lips have been unusually dry and flaky the past few months.  I love using scrubs that contain real sugar and are super gentle so I’m hoping this will be the same.

I’m loving the beautiful color too!

 I received this in their original flavor, but it is also available in strawberry daiquiri (YUM!)

Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer Sample:  Full Size=$20


This silky blend dries transparent and preps your lids for a smooth and even application. Your favorite eye shadows will intensely come to life. But most importantly, it protects your eye makeup all day.

  • Intensifies eye shadow
  • Crease-free
  • Lightweight


I’ve received some Elizabeth Mott products in the past through subscription services and I’ve loved every single thing I’ve ever tried.  She is the creator of one of my favorite eye brushes!

I can always use a good eye shadow primer so I’m hoping this will really fulfill all of its claims!


 Pacifica Power Of Love Natural Lipstick in “Tender Heart” Full Size! =$9.99


Amazingly creamy, highly-pigmented, and naturally moisturizing – this lipstick is packed with all the vitamins and antioxidants your lips crave. Made with coconut oil, shea butter, and vitamin E. 100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free.

  • Moisturizing and creamy
  • Highly pigmented color
  • Packed with vitamins and antioxidants


 Every subscriber received one of three shades this month.  I was kind of hoping for another shade, but I think all three were really beautiful and definitely wearable.

  Here’s the amazing thing about this line:

For every Power of Love Lipstick purchased, Pacifica will give one to a woman in need.  How cool is that?

 I’m thinking I need to purchase all the other shades just for this reason alone!

It is available in 5 shades and is exclusively available at Target.


 Formula X Nail Polish in “Revved Up” Sample:  Full Size=$10.50


Turn up the glam with this ravishing rose gold metallic. See the classic shade revolutionized by intense color and lasting shine with our No Compromise formula.

  • Intense color saturation
  • Brilliant shine
  • Three-free formula


This shade is stunning!

 I think it’s perfect for Christmas and New Years’!


Stand out products this month:

  • Pacifica Lipstick
  • Formula X Nail Polish

    1. It’s definitely one of my favorite bags I’ve received in awhile! I’ve been really loving the lip scrub and the primer. The nail polish was the perfect New Years color too!
