Ipsy: Haute Holiday

This is a bit of a late post and sort of a repeat if you saw my post in December where I posted a quick picture of what came in December's Haute Holiday bag.

For the first time since I've been getting Ipsy (MyGlam) I went to the websites for the products that were put in this bag just to see what the bag is really worth. In this post and in posts in the future I will probably do the research, list the retail price and direct link the products to the pages where you can purchase or get more information about the items.

First up is NYX Loose Pearl Eye Shadow Pigment and Swatch

Color: Charcoal Pearl #05
Retails for $3.00

Second item I received is the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil
Color: Zero
Retails: $19.00

Third item I received was the Mai Couture Hightlighter Paper
Color: St Barts
Retails: $28.00

I also go the Mirabella Prime for Face & Eyes
Retails: $29.00

Next I got Be a Bombshell Lipgloss & Swatch
Color: Hot Mess
Retails: $14.00

And lastly, I was lucky to receive a sample of Urban Decays Naked Skin Beauty Balm
This was a sample size but the full size retails for $34.00
Out of all these items I have only used the Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm which I can I love, love, love!! It's so light-weight and does not have a perfume smell to it all, it actually has a slight mint smell to it which makes it refreshing. Once I'm done with this sample I will definitely buy the full size. 

I must say that for subscribing to Ipsy for only $10.00 a month and to have received about $93.00 worth of full size products is well worth it. Even though I may not use everything I love that I get introduced to products that I've never heard of or ones that I thought of buy but looked past it and products that I would have never thought to try but end up loving them. 


  1. i see these post n i miss my bag but then again i never ever used the items :( i would give them away in giveaways....

  2. I love the primer, no primer has ever controlled my oily face as much as this one and my pencil I haven't tried it but my has it and she loves it... I'm a little annoyed w the actual bags tho, they're getting smaller and not as cute lol


I love positive feedback, feel free to comment!
