Klorane Floral Water Make-up Remover with Soothing Cornflower
Full Size Price: $23.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.53
This is a water based make-up remover that promotes the ability to also soothe the skin as it is used. I was a little apprehensive about this product as I don't tend to like liquid makeup removers but this product is quite impressive. I used a very small amount on a cotton pad and was able to easily remove all of my makeup in just a few wipes. The only thing I didn't care for, is that I felt that the formula did dry out my skin a bit. Since I already suffer from dry skin, I would prefer to not have a product that promotes that further. It didn't irritate my skin to any unreasonable degree but left a stiff feeling. Overall, I am very impressed with how well it works and if I could find it to be a bit more moisturizing then I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


Beau Gachis Paris Cosmetic Concealer Brush
Price: $16.00
Currently on sale for: $12.00
I am always looking for new brushes to try out so I was excited to see this in my bag this month. This is a concealer brush that works fairly well. I do not tend to use a brush when applying my concealer as I find my fingertips to be the best tool for that part of application. Overall, I did enjoy the brush as it is soft and does apply the concealer evenly. I don't see this brush shedding nor losing it's shape easily so it makes me interested in trying out more brushes from this company. This is the first full size product this month!


LATHER honey moisture mask with propolis extract
Full Size: $22.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.75
As a sufferer of dry skin, especially with the cold air moving in now. I was excited to try a product intended to provide a deep moisturizing mask that lasts through the night. The scent of this is quite strong and very sweet smelling. While it can be overwhelming during application, it does settle into a more lighter, yet still sweet smell. If you do not like honey/sweet smelling face products then this would not be for you. I found that the mask did a good job of keeping my face moisturized through the night, I tend to apply a moisturizer before bed and then in the day before I apply any foundation. With using this at night, my skin did not always need more moisturizer in the morning. My skin has been looking less dry in the mornings since using this product and it has not caused any irritation. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


Pacifica Power Of Love Natural Lipstick in Nudie Red
Price: $10.00
I am a lipstick junkie so I love getting any lip products in my monthly subscriptions. This lipstick is an all natural lip product that contains coconut oil, shea butter, and Vitamin E. I was very mixed about the color when I took my initial swatch. I thought it looked too mature for my taste but ended up liking it a lot more once applied on my lips. It is described as a nudie red which is a unique coloring in my opinion. I really liked the idea of mixing a more tone downed red color. It is highly pigmented but doesn't apply too easily, I found the formula to feel quite dry and it was a bit of a struggle to apply without causing a streaky look. Once on the lips, it still felt very drying which I was surprised by as it contains many moisturizing ingredients. Overall, I like the color but I am a bit disappointed by the formula. I would consider purchasing more shades as I am curious if my lipstick was more dry than it's supposed to be. This is also the second full size product this month!


Formula X The Colors in the shade Revved Up
Full Size Product: $10.50
Sample size value is approximately: $2.62
Along with being a lipstick junkie, I am also a nail polish junkie. I do not own any other polishes from this brand so I was excited to try out this polish. First of all, the color is extremely flattering and is perfect for the upcoming holidays and winter season. While it is a shimmer/glitter polish, it is still mature and not overly sparkly. The formula is quick to dry and applies opaque in just two coats. I have had some mild chipping issues with this polish but I use my hands a lot for cleaning and work around the home so I am not too surprised by that. Overall, I really enjoy the beautiful color and am impressed with the formula. I would consider purchasing more polishes from this brand.


My December Glam Bag is valued at $33.90.
I pay $10.00 a month, so I received an extra value of $23.90 this month.
Overall, I really enjoyed this month's products and found the overall sizes of the samples to be quite large. I also enjoyed that there were two full size products given. I was not a fan of the glam bag itself this month, it looks cheap and mine already has tears in the inside fabric. I am excited to see how the next year of Ipsy bags goes!
