Long time, no blog. I know, I totally suck at consistency these days. But I just started a new job in cosmetic sales at Macy's (totally awesome, btw!) and my husband just started a new job, and I've got like a million and a half things to do to get ready for Christmas. Oh, and I recently started assisting a friend in getting her web page up and running, and I'm blogging for her as well. This one's a foodie site, and I'm typing up recipes and such. We are looking for someone to do videos for her site, so if you or someone you know has a great foodie vlog, let me know and maybe we can work something out.
But moving on to today's post! I received my Glam Bag from Ipsy yesterday, and I immediately tried out the products and got pictures for you guys. This month's bag was absolutely gorgeous! Of all the ipsy bags I've received so far, this is by far the nicest looking. It's simple in design, just glossy back without any print, but it's textured. This is something that I could actually see myself carrying out as a clutch, not just a makeup bag. I received 5 items in this month's bag; Be a Bombshell The One Stick in Flustered, Pop Beauty Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Trio in Smokin Hot!, Andrea Strip Lashes #33, NYX Round Lipstick in Goddess, and Starrily Nail Polish in Bzzz Bzzz. I'm going to give a bit of a mini review for each product based on my usage yesterday, so it's not going to be very in depth.
If you haven't heard of the Glam Bag before, it's a $10 a month subscription bag with various full and sample sized cosmetics. Usually there are 5-6 items in your bag, and the bag itself is usually super cute. Totally worth $10 in my opinion. If you'd like to sign up, please do use my link as it will get me Ipsy points that I can use to get additional items in my bag. KalamityJane's Ipsy Referral Link

And of course, I had to try out all of my products to see how well they worked together, and I'm loving it. These all worked together very well to make a lovely look. So, here's a quick selfie with all products listed below!

I think that this month's products worked really well together to make a great look. Perfect for holiday parties with lots of shimmer and drama on the eyes while still staying very rosy/natural on the rest of the face. And then the bag to go with it is ultra fab. Great job, Ipsy! This month's bag is amazing!
I hope that everyone is getting to spend some wonderful time with friends and family for the holidays and not totally spazzing out over the stressers that come about this time of year. I definitely get a little crazy this time of year, so you might not see too much of me over here on the blog until after New Year's. So in case you don't hear more from me until later, I hope everyone has a happy holiday season! Til next time!
