December 2015 Ipsy Glam Bag

{Purchased by Me}{Referral Links}

Today I’m going to show you the December 2015 Ipsy Glam Bag. This month was particularly excellent!  If you want to sign up, use my referral link by clicking here. I got five items plus a super cool bonus item.


This month, I received Klorane eye makeup remover, Thank Me Later eyeshadow primer, Peter Samas Hand Cream, Tarte Finishing Powder, Pacifica Power of Love in Nudie Red.



The extra cool item this month is an eyeshadow palette from Michelle Phan’s company, em. There was a note included saying how I was one of the first people to sign up for Ipsy (I joined the second month they were in business) and they were giving this palette to their long-term subscribers. I don’t know where the cut-off was, but I’m so excited to try this!



Obviously I wanted to try out the em palette right away! Here’s a look I put together using the shadow palette and the Pacifica lipstick from this month’s Ipsy bag. I also used the Elizabeth Mott eye primer.


The shadows had a really nice color payoff. It’s definitely good quality. I also like the colors themselves. You  can do some pretty neutral looks with it or some lovely dark, smokey looks. I’m pleased to have this palette and I know I’ll be reaching for it a lot!


If you want monthly presents from your past self to your future self, Ipsy is a great option. I’m rarely disappointed and I’ve found some pretty great brands that I might not have tried otherwise. I always think it’s well worth the $10/month!
