All of my items were inside the silver bag!

Everything in my box!

Most of them also came in their own boxes, which include the ingredients list.

Everything in my December 2019 bag!

I received a card but unlike the past few cards, it doesn’t list the products I received.

Instead it had tips on how to add sparkle to a holiday hairdo.

They discussed some changes coming in the new year, but they didn’t mention when January sample choice will happen (it happened on December 19th).

Ipsy December 2019 Glam Bag The December bag is really cute, I love the shiny silver material!

The bag is about 8″ x 5″.

There is a green Ipsy zipper pull and the inside is lined with green nylon fabric.

NailMedic Nail Polish in Mauvy or Nice (Full size, $7.99 listed value) I can’t seem to find this shade available online but it seems like a color I might pick out when shopping for myself.

The polish is 10-free, meaning it doesn’t have 10 ingredients that are considered toxic, plus it is infused with biotin to help keep nails strong.

I think this pink berry shade is pretty and will work year round for me.

Juliette Has A Gun Not A Perfume ($10) I am no stranger to this perfume and was happy to see it in my bag because both of my daughters love it!

It has a single scent note – cetalox – which is a synthetic version of ambergris, aka whale vomit. To my nose it doesn’t smell like much but I catch the note in other perfumes and even in my laundry detergent, it just smells clean.

Thrive Causemetics Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara in Brynn ($8.84) I’ve heard so many good things about this mascara but for me it did what most mascaras do – made me look like I have lashes.

I didn’t really experience much thickening or lengthening effects but it didn’t clump or run so those are pluses.

Hey Honey Look Into My Eyes Retinol Eye Mask ($15.66) I like using eye creams and even if I don’t really see any improvement when using them, I like to think they are helping keep that area moist at the very least.

It is supposed to hydrate while brightening the under eye area. It feels creamy and even though it is supposed to work like a mask (you can later pat remaining product into skin) I find that my skin absorbs it immediately. It has coconut oil and propolis and hyaluronic acid (which is the next to last ingredient. The last one? Honey extract.). I wish it didn’t have added fragrance, I don’t need the area to smell lightly floral, but other than that I thought it worked well as an eye cream.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hr Blush in Kisses ($5.08) Members can now pick a product for their bag and I went with this vibrant blush.

It comes in a non-mirrored compact and you’ll need a compact blush brush to reach the product.

I couldn’t find this shade available for sale anywhere but there were several others to choose from on sites like Sephora. It appears to have some shimmer but it wasn’t really obvious when I applied it to my cheeks. A little goes a long way but I was able to blend it out a bit with powder.

It’s brighter than what I would normally wear but light pink doesn’t seem good for the season. I am pretty happy with this blush!

I was very pleased with my December Ipsy Glam Bag! I thought the products fit my profile well and I enjoyed using them all month. I received two makeup items, a nail product, a perfume, and a treatment product so I think that’s a good combo and kept things interesting. The value for my December bag was around $47.57, which is pretty good but keep in mind that your bag and products may be very different from mine since items sent are based on your beauty profile.
