The Once Over:: IPSY Glam Bag - December 2016

HI Friends. Thanks for coming back. 

A while back, I started following beauty blogs. My first one was Lex. I was drawn to her blog when I read an article she had written about rosacea that appeared on BuzzFeed. Based on my list of blogs that I like (off to the left there, check it out), you can tell it exploded from there. While viewing these blogs, I learned about beauty subscriptions. You can get these from so many different sources that I don't know how I didn't know about them before, duh. Knowing that I was going to be in Florida for 6 months, I decided to wait until coming here in November to start up one of them because of lot of the ones I was interested in were US based and offered free shipping within the US. You don't even want to know how long it took me to decide and how many websites I visited to look at reviews of the ones I was interested in. 
As you can probably tell by my title, I chose IPSY. Due to postal issues you don't want to hear about - arrrggghhhh - my first bag was the December one. 
My package arrived in this beautiful shiny fuchsia bag - ooohhh ahhhh. Of course I dove right in. Check out these pics and then of course I'll talk some more - aren't you luckayyy

As you can see, there's more than just 5 items (which I think is the norm). The makeup bag is this adorable fuzzy fuchsia (Did you know that's how you spell fuchsia? I didn't). I love it. 

Inside this scrumptious little cutie I found a Hikari Cosmetics full-size liquid eyeliner in "Iris" which in case anybody doesn't know is PURPLE. In case anyone reading this doesn't know, my favorite color is PURPLE! Moving on. There was a full-size eyeliner pencil by The Balm, Mr. Write (Now) in "Jac" which is a goldish brown that probably exactly matches my eyebrows. Can't wait to try it. And, finally, there was a cream eyeshadow by Starlooks in "IPSY Rose Gold", The Balm Mad Lash mascara in Black, MPrincess eyeshadow in "Melting Maple", and pūr-lisse Prevent Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer. 

There's more! Inside that shiny fuchsia packaging there was Teeez Cosmetics Eve's Ready to Wear full-size Lipstick in "Romantic Red", Privai Aqua Gel Masque, Tarte Maracuja Oil, and Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara in, you guessed it, black. 

I'm gonna cut you loose now so that you can get on with your day and more important things, although I can't imagine what would be more important than listening to me he he.

Let me know what you think of this post. Were the pics ok? How's my writing style so far? Were you impressed with the IPSY bag and it's contents. If you're planning on subscribing, why not use my link - I get some sorta points or somethin or other if you go through me. My IPSY Link
