Another month; another Ipsy glam bag! Knowing that I'll be getting at least one package a month makes me feel pretty damn cool. Nothing like snail mail to get a girl all excited, right? 

For those they may be like, "Hey Noelle! What's Ipsy?" Ipsy is a $10 a month subscription service  run by Michelle Phan (beauty vlogger extraordinaire) where you receive 3-5 deluxe mini or full sized beauty products to try out, all in a cute bag!

This month's theme is 19 Reasons 2014 Will Be Amazing. 19 reasons to make it an amazing new year, a million reasons to be a beautiful new you! Cute theme!

The Bag - Adorable, right? Too bad it stuck to high heaven. Like nasty, plastic chemicals or something. I've heard of people having this issue with past bags but thankfully it never happened to me. Until now. It's just a total unpleasant smell that almost cheapens the whole bag. I've had this baby airing out for a few days now and the smell has yet to go away. 

Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow in Penny
Penny is a gorgeous smooth copper with shimmer. They recommend that you can use the smooth shadow pencil as an eyeliner, in the waterline, to contour or to highlight. It's basically universal. The formula is buttery smooth and doesn't pull or tug. I'm really happy this was in the bag!

MicaBeauty Tinted Lip Balm in Natural
Natural is a rosy nude color. One swipe will give you a nice sheer tint but you can keep applying for a more opaque look. The scent is a little weird. It kind of smells like crayons. It goes away once it's on your lips though. Pretty moisturizing and hydrating.

Nourish Organic Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion
Oh my goodness. I think this might be my new favorite face lotion. It's so lightweight and soft and just - ugh, amazing. It contains Moroccan Argan Oil to hydrate and replenish, Rosewater to even out your skin tone and Shea Butter to keep your skin moisturized. Scent smells a little like oranges. I don't even know guys. I think my nose is super sensitive lately.

willa On The Go Lavender Face Wipes
Comes with ten wipes. These wipes are hypoallergenic and oil-free with Aloe and Green Tea. I really like these because they're gentle and get off most of the dirt and oils left over. I usually will use make-up remover and then come in with this after.

Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner
LOVE Healthy Sexy Hair products! I was nervous trying this because I rarely use leave-in conditioners because of my thin hair. This is really light-weight and didn't make my hair greasy. It left my hair smelling amazing (like paradise!) and soft.

Overall, this was great bag! A lot of new products that I don't think I would've known about if it wasn't for this bag. The bag itself reeked which was disappointing. My favorites were the Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner and the Nourish Organic Moisturizer.
