December ipsy Glam Bag Reveal!

     First of all, I need to start off by saying how SUPER excited I am for Kenzie and Adam about their exciting news! I can't believe we are both pregnant. First marrying brothers and becoming sisters, and NOW becoming pregnant together, God has truly blessed us. We are so thankful! 
     Okay - so this is a first for me! This is my first ipsy glam bag and my first post about the products I received. For those of you who don't know, ipsy is a fun beauty bag that you sign up for. Each month, subscribers receive a beautiful Glam Bag with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Members can watch and play along with the stylists with the same products that they are using. All for only $10 a month. There are other similar programs, such as the popular birchbox. Although I have never tried birchbox, I have heard that ipsy is a bit better. So far, I am pretty pleased with it. You take a quick survey when you sign up to help match the products they send you with your likes and style. You can find out more information about ipsy HERE!
You'll know your package has arrived when you see this pretty pink package in your mailbox!
This is the cute glam back this month. I love that about this program, that the products you receive are in a fun little portable makeup bag, that you can reuse again and again!
 Here is what I received:
1. Be a Bombshell
An all-in-one multiple stick with a smooth texture. Apply to eyelids, cheeks or lips for the perfect pop of color anywhere! 
--I am excited to try this one out, I received the "sunset" color.
The Big Lip Pencil is a hydrating and vibrant lipstick as well as a sculpting lip liner. 
--I am not much of a lip pencil gal, but the color is pretty - I may try to mix it with a simple chap stick or clear gloss.
This palette of hues adds definition & intensity to lids, creating a broad range of looks that complements all eye colors.
--I was excited I received the "natural" shades, I tested them on my hand and they seem like pretty good quality.
 Features a combo of yellow and black glitters in a clear base.
--I might try this one out for Christmas! I am pretty sure I will use a base coat and this polish to coat on top.
Charming, Delicate & Elegant. Signature opens with quince, complimented by white chocolate and jasmine petals at the heart. 
--I wasn't a big fan of this scent, and the fact that it came with a men's sample was a bit odd. But I do like the idea of getting perfume samples!
