Ipsy December 2012(review+swatches)

 When I knew it was time for spoilers from Ipsy, I promised I wouldn't look and keep it a surprise...yeah right LOL! Of course I couldn't help myself and looked at all the spoilers, and I got so excited about what I was going to get from them. My bag, had no extras and I'm OK with that I guess, everything is just so amazing I'm not mad at all. <3

Lets check out my super cute products!

Be a Bombshell - Lip Gloss in Hot Mess: $14 Full size. Gorgeous lip gloss, I don't have any other red lip glosses, so I was excited. This is perfect for a cute pin up look and great for the holidays. I thought it would be too sheer, but it's easily buildable, it's sticky, but not the annoying kind of sticky(I don't know if you get what I mean). It has great staying power. Beware if the significant other kisses you, they might end up with a red pout too! I know my bf did, I literally LOL'd. Love this product and the bf loved it too, so I think I will get some use for sure!

Mai Couture - Highlighter Papier in St. Barts: $14 for 25 sheets, full size has 50 sheets and goes for $28. This product scared me a bit when I swatched it on my hand, it looked orange! I was afraid to put it on my face, but when I actually ended up wearing it, it worked great and I didn't look orange at all. I applied it to my cheek bones and my nose. It gave a gorgeous highlight and a shimmer to my face. I'd like this more, if instead of paper I'd just get the product in a powder form. I really like this, It's not my favorite thing ever, but I will definitely go through the 25 sheets in no time!

Mirabella - Prime For Face and Eyes: $29 Full size. I haven't tried out this product cuz I have lots of primers to go through. Do keep in mind however, this is a product with silicone, so some might not like it. I do love the fact that it's a full size tho!


NYX - Ultra Pearl Mania Loose Pearl Eye Shadow in Silver: $2.99 Full size . This is my first NYX loose eye shadow and I love it. You can either use it to add a little bit of glitter and glow to your eye shadow, or build it up and get a gorgeous silver color. I love this item, and OMG the amount of product in this tiny container. I depotted it and put it in an empty bareMinerals foundation container and I filled it up. I had so much left! I also grabbed another small container and filled that up too! On top of all that, I still have a bunch left in the container it came in(as you can see in the pictures below).

Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide on eye pencil in Zero: $6.33, comes in a set of 6 that goes for $38. I love love love this eyeliner. I already have the exact same one, same size and everything, I got it from a trade, but that doesn't mean I don't love it! This is definitely my go to black eyeliner and I've been wearing it almost daily now. I love that I don't end up with raccoon eyes at the end of the day and that it's really pigmented. I don't know if I will keep this one as a back up for the other one, or if I will just trade it. Either way, I love this product for sure!


 The swatches are in the same order the products are listed.

 I also made a look with the products I got from this bag. I'm wearing: MUF HD foundation and HD Powder, Tarte Emphaseyes in Shimmering Taupe, benefit R.S.V.P, Mally Volumizing Mascara, Be a Bombshell Lipgloss, Lorac Eyeshadow primer and liquid Eye liner, Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Zero and NYX Loose Powder in Silver.

No flash.
With flash.



Box Value and final thoughts: 


   The total value of this box is $66.32, that's amazing! I paid $10 and I'm getting like 6 times what I paid for, that's just great value if you ask me!
   I love the products I've tried so far, which is most of them, except for the primer.  I hope to love it too, but even if I don't I'm still really happy and satisfied with this box. I think if they wouldn't have sent a red lip gloss I wouldn't have tried it. I have a red lip stick, but I barely wear it, now that I know the bf likes it, I might wear it more often. It's hard to get used to, but I think I love the way it looks on me, with a discrete eye look and winged eye liner it's just gorgeous. I love the NYX pigment. It's really pigmented and not chalky at all, there's so much of it too. I think it will last me for like forever! I already knew I loved the liner and I already have it, but I'm still glad I got it. I'm glad the highlighting papiers don't look bad on me and I think that it will be the first thing that I will run out of. I don't think I will repurchase them, cuz they are a bit too pricey in my opinion. If I was getting the product as a powder for the same price I would probably buy it.

  I'm so glad I got this box this month and so happy I subscribed to Ipsy. I can't wait for what the next months will bring and I hope they keep it up likes this, cuz in my humble opinion they are doing an amazing job providing amazing products at an amazing value. I know right? Amahzing!(Love Happy Endings! <3) LOL. 

  I really recommend Ipsy if make up is what you are after and I hope you liked this review.
