Not In Jersey: December Ipsy Glam Bag + Influenster December Ipsy Glam Bag + Influenster - Not In Jersey

December Ipsy Glam Bag + Influenster

Monday, December 26, 2016

It was just a few weeks ago that I reviewed my November Ipsy bag, but I have been behind on my reviews – I like to do them in the same month that I get them! So this month I’m reviewing glam bags twice. Oh well!

I have been getting the Ipsy Glam Bag for over 3 years now. I always look forward to see what arrives every month. This month’s theme was “carpe p.m.” Here is what I received:

I love the bag this month! It’s so fancy.

brush
Beau Gachis Concealer Brush – $16:
Whether your concealer of choice is liquid or cream, dabbing it on with this handcrafted brush makes for super smooth and seamless coverage.
28% off and free shipping over $25 with code beautifulipster28 until 1/31/17.
My thoughts: This is a soft brush and feels smooth on my face.

hair
Marc Anthony True Professional Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco Deep Hydrating Treatment – $2.99:
The winter dry-out wreaks havoc on our hair. Our favorite way to instantly condition and restore strands? This uber hydrating treatment.
My thoughts: This felt very nice when I put it in my hair and when I rinsed it out. I like this brand too.

oil
tarte cosmetics deluxe maracuja oil – $48 for 1.7 oz, I received .24 oz, a value of $6.78:
This multitasker left our skin quenched, nourished, and dewy—not shiny.
20% off with code IPSYDEC until 1/10/17.
My thoughts: Definitely felt nice and not greasy! I liked the smell and it made my skin feel smooth. It can also be used on hair and nails!

liner

Aurora Intensively Precise Eyeliner in Blackberry – $7.99:
Super-fine tip and a no-slip grip make it easy to draw a precise line exactly where we want it.
20% off with code IPSY20DEC until 1/31/17.
My thoughts: I love eyeliner pens! This went on really nicely and lasted. Although I like black, it might have been nice to receive the brown this time, because I don’t have any brown eyeliner pens!

mascara2
theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash Mascara – $18 for 8 ml, I received 2.5 ml, a value of $5.62:
One of the most bendy wands we’ve ever laid eyes on, it moves easily to hug each and every lash.
20% off with code IPSY20 until 12/31/16.
My thoughts: I guess I get mascara every month now! I used it and I liked the curve of the brush. I also love this brand in general from the other products I’ve tried from Ipsy!

hair2
Briogeo Curl Charisma Rice Amino + Quinoa Frizz Control Gel – $20 for 5.5 oz, I received .75 oz, a value of $2.73:
A scrunch of this is all you need for flawless—and by that we mean smooth and bouncy, never crunchy or sticky—curls.  
20% off with code IPSY20 until 1/31/17.
My thoughts: This was an extra for me that I got with my Ipsy points that were about to expire. It seems to work like other gels I have tried!

Once again, I pay $10 a month for these bags. The value received this month was approximately $42.11, which even with the extra product, was less than last month! However, I liked this month’s products more. My favorite was the eyeliner.

Speaking of eyeliner (and mascara), this month I also received a box from Influenster containing both eyeliner and mascara! The Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Vox Box contained Maybelline New York The Colossal Big Shot and Maybelline New York Master Precise Curvy Eyeliner. Both were lovely to use but I was especially happy with the wide eyeliner tip!
