IPSY DECEMBER 2018 GLAM BAG

DEC2018_0Final glam bag of 2018.

And we’re ending the year relatively strong!

DEC2018_1As is the case with my October bag, love the concept but not so much the execution. The bag feels flimsy and cheap; the spangle side almost rustles like paper.

At the same time, it’s cute and kitschy-glam. That festive gold makes sense to me. December should be festive.

Items I received:

Finding Ferdinand Blush in Skinny Dip – Lovely mute-pink blush. A bit chalky. It’s a shade lighter than what is shown in the product photos. Think more NARS Deep Throat than Orgasm. Like.

The Balm Cosmetics Nude Beach EyeShadow in Bootylicious – Raspberry brown, with hints of shimmer. I like The Balm shadows in general, so this was also a like.

Ciate London Glitter Flip Liquid Lip in Infamous – Not as glittery as the name makes it out to be. A reddish berry shade that dries down into a matte shimmer. Like.

F.A.R.A.H. Brushes Blending Brush 35E – This is such a beautiful blending brush. And fitting, with the gold theme of the bag. The bristles are soft and the handle doesn’t feel cheap. Love.

Coco & Eve Like a Virgin Coconut Hair Mask – Smells overwhelmingly like coconut. This may be a like or a dislike depending on how it works as a mask. Undecided.

Dr.Lipp Colour Tint in Sweet Potato – Love the idea and the name, but the product refused to leave the tube. Squeezing with both my hands made a bird’s nostril-sized amount squirt out, and even that was too tacky. Barely any color. Dislike.

DEC2018_2Six items in total. 5/6. This was a good bag.

I’m sad about the Dr.Lipp. Had such high hopes for the Sweet Potato. I hope I got a bad batch.

DEC2018_3Here’s a close-up of the brush. It’s gorgeous.

Come to think of it, I’ve never disliked a brush Ipsy sent me. I’ve failed with plenty of other products, but never a brush.
