Can I just say, GORGEOUS. THIS is a bag I would love to carry with me on a night out! Only, this time I kind of wished there was a wristlet portion to it! Nonetheless, I absolutely love love this bag. It has a red interior as well. My favourite combination of colours, black and red (yes, I am aware that black isn’t technically a colour!)!!

Thoughts for this month’s ipsy bag

This month, ipsy has outdone themselves! It was truly a spectacular Christmas gift! As we all know, I’m not a fan of sparkles, but I will make an exception for the Be a Bombshell: The One Stick in FlusteredThis item is truly multi-purpose! I love how you can use it as a blush and control the pinkness of it! Looks great on lips as well! Only downside is that it contains parabens. Instead of giving away the pop beauty: Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Trio in Naturally Bare, I think this time round I am going to try this one on! I generally steer clear of sparkly eye shadows, but these natural colours make me want to try them on at the very least! The NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in HERMES/LSS544 is a definitely love for this month’s ipsy bag! NYX has amazing prices for great quality lipstick. It applies so smoothly and creamy! I could probably use a different colour for my skin tone though! I have received once a gain, a nail polish sample! I’m beginning to think I can open my own nail salon at this rate! Joking! The NICKA K New York Nail Polish in Classic Taupe is a very down-to-earth kind of colour. It doesn’t stand out too much, perfect colour to match the winter weather! It glides on ever so smoothly! Only requires one coat as well! Fantastic product! Last, but not least, the MIRABEllA Eye Blender! This brush makes me feel like an artist! I love the weighted handle and the silver finish! The brush bristles are super soft and it definitely does what it was meant for! Blending! As you can see, I absolutely love this month’s ipsy bag! The brush itself was worth getting the ipsy bag! I’m trying to hide how happy I am with this month’s bag! =D

Thoughts for this month’s ipsy bag

I’m going to start off with how much I love the bag. It by far is the most normal looking bag I’ve received and I love it for this. I can use this bag to carry items without people staring at me! It’s nice and discreet when I pull it out! Secondly, I immediately tried the Cailyn tinted lip balm and I am in love. The colour is a little bright, but it’s definitely a quick save when you need to transition from a work day to a night event! Lines the lips beautifully! The nail polish is a bit dark for me, but I’m going to say it’ll be perfect for Halloween since it’s almost a deep burgandy-purple-ish colour! Mascara and Eyelines don’t really ever fail, but I have yet to try these so I can’t comment! And again, I’m not a fan of shiny stuff, so the NYX nutmeg eyeshadow doesn’t do it for me =( Hope you enjoyed this review! Until next month!
