december-ipys-2017-snowglobe-review

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Ipsy “Unzipped” – $17USD I’ve received a blush and an eye shadow from Ofra in previous Ipsy bags and really liked them, so it’s not surprising that this *Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick was an instant lip lover. It has the most amazing formula – goes on super smooth, dries…

e.l.f.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil “Perversion” – $24CDN When Urban Decay named this pencil glide-on, they weren’t playing no games! This super-black eye pencil glides so easily along the lid that I made a huge mess with it in mere seconds. Definitely perfect for a sexy smoky eye, I recommend applying this liner before drinking an…
