1. Big Sexy Hair 450* Blow Out Heat Defense Spray // 2. Cailyn Just Mineral Eye Polish in "Orchid" // 3. Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara // 4. NYX Butter Lip Balm in "Marshmallow" // 5. BWC Aromatherapy Facial CleanserThis is the last glam bag of 2014, and it was definitely the type of bag that had really great things, and a couple of unexpected goodies. The NYX butter lip balm would have really served me better in a more vibrant color, because I hate nudes, but it smells so good and is really nourishing, so it might get some good use. The mineral eye polish is the one thing I'm iffy about, but it's a nice color and it's supposedly really good ingredients, so again, it'll probably get some use. The facial cleanser smells delicious, and it's a cruelty-free product, which I like. I'm sure it cleans faces the way it's supposed to, but I don't know if it will replace Purity in my line-up. The heat defense spray is probably awesome, because BSH is a reputable brand, and even though I can never tell if heat spray is actually working because my hair is in awful shape to begin with, it doesn't hurt to use. And this one smells like absolute heaven.The winner of this bag though by far has to be the Tarte mascara. I had this in my hand at Sephora before the holidays, but decided to be good and not spend on myself. In the true fashion of a Christmas miracle, ipsy sent me some, and I could not be happier with it. It's seriously awesome, and it makes my lashes so long that my manicurist asked me if I got eyelash extensions. WIN. If ipsy did one thing right this year, it had to be that they sent over the most amazing mascaras in almost every other bag throughout the whole year. Keep 'em comin, ips!
