As always, my Ipsy Glam bag was amazing this month. I'm constantly impressed by the samples they give me for only $10 a month...they're almost never boring and they tend to include newer products I've been wanting to try which is just so great.
Bumble and Bumble Repair Blow Dry- This is a really new product that I've been wanting to try and I'm so glad I didn't buy it yet because now I can try it for free! It's supposed to be a serum-in-cream for dry and damaged hair that seals split ends...perfect for my hair type!
NYX Butter Lip Balm- I love NYX and this is a full-sized product which is great. This butter lip balm is so soft and gives a sheer wash of color that really pops. The shade they sent me, Parfait is a fuchsia with blue undertones an it's actually pretty pigmented yet it still allows my lips to show through a little bit so it's not an intimidating color. I'm in love with how easy it is to just swipe on and go!
Nourish Organic Eye Cream- This eye cream is perfect for my dry skin. It has no scent and contains avocado oil, argan oil and shea butter. I can't wait to use it tonight!
Cailyn Just Mineral Eye Polish- This is a full size product and it's a loose eyeshadow in the base with a sponge-tipped applicator in the handle. This shade, Orchid, is a beautiful shimmery pinky taupe that goes on smooth and pigmented.
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara- This is an old favorite of mine and I'm super happy to get a travel size! You can never have too many mascaras.
Here are swatches of the NYX Butter Lip Balm and Cailyn Just Mineral Eye Polish...I was really surprised at how much color is in this lip balm...I really want to try more shades now!

Overall, I'm super happy with this month's Glam Bag. There were two full sized products and it had a total value of $31.99 not including the eye cream because I don't know how much it costs yet (it's going to be released in January). I always feel like they send me products that are tailored to my skin type and makeup preferences. So many other subscription boxes have you take the quiz but then ignore your answers. I've never found that to be the case with Ipsy. If you're thinking about trying a beauty subscription, I highly recommend Ipsy!
