December Ipsy Glam Bag Review - Doused in Pink - a fashion and lifestyle blog

December Ipsy Glam Bag Review



This month really flew by and I can't believe Christmas is over! I'm going to keep things short and sweet today and review my December Ipsy Glam Bag. If you aren't familiar with Ipsy, it's is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription where you get five full or deluxe size samples of a variety of products and a cute makeup bag all for $10! You never know what you’ll get and once again, I've hit the jackpot! Here's what I got in mine this month:


This month's glam bag came with a cute black bag with a pink heart charm on the zipper. 

Bumble and Bumble All Style Blow Dry 
I've always been a fan of Bumble and Bumble products and was excited to try this product. The first time I tried it, I used a small, dime sized amount in my hair, as recommended. It was a foggy, damp day and as you can see from the photos in my post here, my hair immediately frizzed up. The second time, I used more product and had better results. It gave my hair nice volume and was shiny and smooth all day. Bonus, it smells great too! 
Verdict: 

Nourish Organics Renewing Eye Cream
This lightweight, non-greasy eye cream is rich with argon and avocado oils. It absorbed quickly and kept the skin around my eyes hydrated all day.
Verdict: 

NYX Butter Lip Balm
I love NYX butter products and this lip balm did not disappoint. It glides on your lips, keeps them smooth and soft for hours, and smells fantastic. The Red Velvet color gave my lips the perfect hit of red color. 
Verdict: 

Tarte Lights Camera Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara
Another great mascara to try this month! This mascara gave me long, full lashes with one coat. It did not clump or flake and lasted all day with no smudging.
Verdict: 

Crown Brush Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush
So excited to finally get a brush! This soft, dual ended brush holds your eye shadows well and blends perfectly. 
Verdict: 

What did you get in your Ipsy Glam bag this month?

    Great review! I haven't tried all of my products yet since I've been sick, but love your review! I did try the lip balm and I'm trying to decide if its too 'Cherry Koolaid' red for me or not. I did try the Bumble & Bumble, but used a lot and over my normal styling products that I put on my wet hair and really liked the added benefit. I can't wait to try the eye cream, will probably try it at night. LOVE the mascara!

  16. Bumble & Bumble hair products used to be my go-to, but for some reason I fell out of love with them (probably the price!). I might need to revisit them because I remember having good luck with some of their volumizing stuff, and I need all the help I can get in that department. Great reviews as usual Jill!
