Ipsy December Glam Bag

Hey All!!! Yes, it's that time of month again, the Ipsy December Glam Bag is here. It's been here for a week or two, but I was missing an item and wanted to wait to post till it came in.
With that said, let me tell you that Ipsy's customer service rocks!!! I messaged them on a Saturday afternoon, when my bag came in, and heard back from someone within a few hours saying that as soon as they can they will have it out in the mail. They did too!!! That Monday, I had gotten an email with a tracking code for the missing item.

This month's theme is Thinking of You. It card had a different saying on it, and I had got one that said "You are a: Talented Being" how fitting is that!! On the back it said "Our thoughts are filled with you this month. Thank you for 2014 filled with beauty, laughter and inspiration. You've given us so many reasons to smile, and we look forward to an awesome 2015. xoxo, Ipsy"

Inside my bag, I found Coolway Boost Repair Treatment, Crown Brush Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush, NYX Cosmetics Butter Lip Balm, Pixi by Petra Fairy Dust, and tarte deluxe lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara.

The Reviews

The Bag -
First, I must say, I really love the bag it came in. It's on the smaller side, but I Love It! Daughters are not getting their hands on this one, lol It's well made, very cute and silky feeling(well more like satin, ) Love it!!

Coolway Boost Repair Treatment -
I have tried this twice and did not like it. I made my hair feel dry and I had to follow with my own conditioner. I did follow the directions too. I don't know, if it's just my hair or what, but it did not work for me.

Crown Brush Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush -
Love this brush!! It's a very good quality. Perfect for blending and eyeshadows. One of my favorites in this bag.

NYX Cosmetics Butter Lip Balm -
This was my missing item. Love it and worth the wait. Keeps your lips super soft and hydrated plus it's tinted with just the right color. Love it!! I did give mine to my daughter, after trying to decide if the color(Lady Fingers - a mauve) they sent was ok for me, and it was not. Wish I had received the pure nude color, but oh well, It is a great lip balm.

Pixi by Petra Fairy Dust -
Love this glimmering dust. It looks so pretty and I love how it gave my eyes a shimmer and shine. Will be buying a full set of this. Just wonderful.

tarte deluxe lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara -
I have been dying to try this!! And I liked it a lot. The only thing I didn't like is when I got stuck in the rain and ended up looking like a raccoon. So I don't know if I would buy it on my own or not.

I am happy with this month's bag and it was well worth the $10, I paid for it. I will be adding more beauty subscriptions and other subscriptions soon.(and yes, I pay for them with my own money and they are not sent to me by the companies. All my reviews are my own opinions on the items, and I am not paid for reviewing them.)
