After seeing spoilers for December bag I was a bit worried. There were so many hair products send out this month and none of them were likely to work for my hair. However, I lucked out and didn’t get any of the dreaded hair stuff. Instead I got:
– Beauty Without Cruelty A.H.A 3% Facial Cleanser
– NYX Cosmetics Butter Lip Balm in Parfait
– Pixi by Petra Fairy Dust in Brightening Bare
– Swissco Eyelash Curler
– Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 mascara
I’m happy to get Tarte mascara. A lot of people find receiving black mascara in their subscription boxes boring, I find them useful. Especially when they are from a brand that I’m curious about. I’m happy about BWC cleanser as well, mostly because getting it saved me from useless (for me) hair stuff. Lash curler feels a bit cheap, but I’m looking forward to trying it out. I’ve been using my old Revlon curler as long as I can remember, it’s time for something new. Pixi shadow is a bit not as shimmery as I expected. Plus, it looks somewhat orange-y on me. I’ll play with it a bit more to see if I can make it work. NYX Lip Balm is my least favorite item this month, mostly because of the color. It will probably get used anyway – New York winters make using lip balms mandatory.
On a semi-related note, I’m kind of sad to see so little variation between the bags this month. This my be unpopular opinion, but I feel that having more variety is fun and allows to meet everyone’s needs and wants. Ipsy needs to be improving their match system, not reducing number of possible bag combinations. Bottom Line: A really good month. If we disregard the color of the lip balm, I probably got the best possible combination.
