December 2016 Ipsy bag

This month’s Ipsy glam bag is one the best bags I’ve received all year. First, look at the bag.


Take it in. Hot pink…sigh. 1970s faux fur. This is to die for. This is a wristlet I’d wear to a party or a girl’s night out.


I love the card that came with the bag. It’s festive and fun. Ready to ring in the new year.sam_1729

This is the kind of bag I like. I can and will use all of these products. I’ve used the Ren face masks before and they’re amazing. I’ve been wanting to try the Tarte Maracuja Oil, but it’s pricey at $48 for a 1.7 oz bottle. I can’t wait to try it. I’ve heard nothing but positive things.

I have several of these Hikari liquid liners, and I keep thinking I’m going to use them more and I will. I’m just not as comfortable with the liquid as I am with a solid eyeliner. The Cake heavy hand cream is one of the best I’ve ever used. I must have a full-size tube, so I hunted it down online at Ulta, but they’re out of stock. Here’s the link if you want to get on the waitlist: Cake hand repair cream. The lotion has shea butter in it and it smells like vanilla icing.


You can’t tell, but this NYX eyeshadow is in the color jaded. It’s a nice deep green color with iridescence. This is one of my personal favorites for folks who have brown eyes like myself.

Stay Blessed,



I'm a Midwesterner who explores the world via the Internet, books, and movies. I share what I learn whether its beauty tips, health advice, recipes or literature. I'd call this blog a melting pot. I named it Barbie's Bookmarks because I love literature, and I love documenting things I find important in my life.. big and small. Thus, these are my life's bookmarks. I look forward to sharing them with you and learning about your bookmarks as well.
