Blogmas day 12! – December Ipsy Glam Bag

Hello beautiful people!
Last night Carmen and I drove around our neighbourhood and looked at all the Christmas lights against the snow, which is one of my all-time favourite things to do after we get our first big snow fall in Toronto. All the lights looked so beautiful and magical! If you’ve never done this, I would highly suggest giving it a shot because it will definitely put a smile on your face.

I also wanted to say a huge thank you to you guys because I reached 200 followers today! That is so incredible, thank you so so much, I love writing posts for you guys to read as well as reading your posts! You guys are the best!

Enough mush, yesterday I got my December Ipsy glam bag and I thought I’d give you guys some first impressions.

As always:
This morning I got more of the pearls but in black and a package of cute little nail stickers!


I actually got a brush in my glam bag this month which is awesome! It’s by Crown brushes and it’s their C476 crease/shadow brush. It’s double sided which is always nice and handy for traveling, but I would definitely not use the “crease” end for crease work as I just think it’s too small. I would use this more for taking shadow under the eye, or for highlighting in the tear duct area. The hairs feel really soft as well so I’m pumped to try this out.

I’ve heard great things about Nyx butter lip balms so I was happy to see one in this month’s glam bag, I got the shade red velvet which has a slight red tint to it. And really who doesn’t need a tinted lip balm? It adds a nice pop of colour while still hydrating your lips! Such a staple for the cold winter months.

I also got a Cailyn mineral eye shadow in the shade #5 orchid. It’s a really beautiful bronzy- champagne colour. I don’t love the foam applicator that comes with it, but the product itself seems really blendable and highly pigmented. I’m excited to give this a try on the eyes and see how long it lasts!

Next is the cool way boost repair hair serum which you use instead of conditioner in the shower. I’ve never been one for hair treatments but this one is paraben, sulfate, formaldehyde, and colour free, as well as cruelty free which really makes me want to use it. I’ll keep you guys posted on how I get on with this stuff!

last but not least was a little bonus in my glam bag this month, I’m not sure why they sent it, maybe a little Christmas gift but I’m so excited about!
Tarte lights, camera, lashes mascara is one that I’ve really wanted to try for a while! I used it this morning and I really like it! It separate’s my lashes well and adds the perfect amount of volume, we’ll see how well it wears.

Let me know if you guys have used any of these!

Today’s movie is going to be Christmas with the Cranks, I’ve never seen it so I’m looking forward to watching it!

I’m heading shopping with my friend Maddie this afternoon and then possibly to the Toronto Christmas Market with Carmen this evening.
What’re you guys getting up to tonight?
I hope you guys have a beautiful Friday!
Until tomorrow,
