The One with the Ipsy January 2016 Glam Bag

I wasn’t that anxious to receive my Ipsy glam bag this month, simply because their products have been hit or miss with me so far. Their theme for January is “All Eyes on You” so after hearing that, I had a good feeling about the bag. Eye products are my favourite makeup items, for sure.

The bag is really cute and ties in perfectly with their theme. This is the first Ipsy bag that I can wholeheartedly say I am 100% happy with! I’m really pleased with everything that I got this month, as well as kind of shocked! A good shocked, though! 😉 Let’s dive in.

Hikari Cosmetics Cream Metallic Pigment Shadow

This is such a beautiful colour. It is called “mink.” I cannot wait to try this shadow! Because it is so glittery, I would say it’s most ideal for a night out so I can’t see myself wearing it overly much. It’s so pretty, though. I would describe it as a gold-y bronze maybe. I’m very happy with this, especially since I’m short on eye shadows!

Mitchell and Peach English Leaf Body Cream

The second I opened my bag, all I could smell was something heavenly, and it was this stuff right here. I’ve been getting a lot of creams in my subscriptions lately, but this one is so different from any of the others! I never knew an English leaf smelled so good. 😉 I like the consistency of the product, also. It contains Vitamin E, shea & cocoa butter, and organic English honey to nourish the skin!

Beau Gâchis Paris Smudge Brush

I keep seeing others receive makeup brushes in their bags, and since I’m short on brushes, I really wanted to get one. I’m happy to say I got this smudge brush. It will be perfect for blending the new Hikari eyeshadow I got!

pur-lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum

I’ve been wanting to try a pur-lisse product! This 4-in-1 serum hydrates, firms, brightens, and decreases puffiness. I’ve been looking for a good eye cream without much luck, so hopefully this one will do the trick. It is supposed to help with fine lines and wrinkles, and also work for dark circles. The scent is very light.

theBalm Cosmetics Mr. Write (Now) Eyeliner Pencil

Everyone received this product in their bag, in either a rich bronze or deep purple. I got the bronze liner! It’s always nice to get a full-sized product, also, to increase the value of the bag! I like this brand a lot, and while I’ve never tried a bronze liner before, I think I will like it. I can see it pairing up nicely with the Hikari eyeshadow!

So, there we have it. A 5-star Ipsy bag! This is the very first month where I was really happy with every single product. I’m content with getting 3 out of 5 products that I like, so I’m a little blown away! I’m not sure how February will top this bag, but I’m curious to find out. 😉
