I created this nail look on Sunday night while watching Downton Abbey and was so impressed with myself I thought I would share it with you!

Don’t let the picture of Beatrix fool you. It looks like its a black polish with gold glitter, but it is a clear coat with black and gold glitter.  Actually after I started writing this post I thought of another glitter polish I have that is very similar and cheaper is Starrily in ‘Bzzz Bzzz” which retails for $12.00.  I received the small bottle which retails for $5.00 in my December 2013 Ipsy Bag.

All right first off I am impressed with the bag this month, that is two months in a row I love the bag.  This month is a very nice quality black bag,  very chic.

Ok first thing I see is an eye shadow trio from Pop Beauty in Naturally Bare.  Nice colors but I have a zillion similar colors so this may or may not be re-gifted for Christmas… Sorry this is not a great picture but I don’t want to open it if I’m going to give it away.

Next is a product from a newly discovered brand that I am really loving.  Its be a…bombshell and the product that I have received this month is The One Stick in ‘Sunset’.  The One Stick is an all in one cheek, eye, lip and shimmer in a gorgeous deep coral with gold shimmer flecks.

Next is a not so favorite product to receive; a nail polish…I get one every month and I already have a ton that I will never be able to use in this lifetime.  This one is from Starrily and is the color ‘Bzzz Bzzz’ and is a textured polish in combination of black and yellow glitters in what looks like a clear base.

And another lip pencil!   This is new brand to me J. Cat Beauty, The Big Lip Pencil in the shade Caramel Mocha.  I like lip pencils so I am excited to try this and see how it wears.

And lastly is a set of Ardell Lashes the 120 Demi, which I think I already have this pair…if not they are super similar.  Not quite what I was expecting to find in my Ipsy bag, I can get Ardell lashes at Walmart, so this product doesn’t excite me as much as some of the others.  Don’t get me wrong I will use them I just expect more high end/unique brands to be represented in my Ipsy bag monthly.
