Poor rhyming skills aside, the December 2015 bag was themed "With Love From Ipsy" - almost making you think the bag was free. The bag itself is red and vinyl. I like the shape, though not the uber-vinyl finish.

Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing PowderThe unexpected gem in this bag. As soon as I run out of this beautiful finishing loose powder, I will buy a full-sized jar. The texture reminds me of Johnson's Baby Powder, but without the "freshly changed baby at large" smell. Finely milled. Lovely for setting liquid foundation.
Aveeno Daily Moisturising LotionI love this all-over moisturiser and already have three full-sized bottles of this natural body lotion - Boots had them on 3-for-2. This mini size goes into my travel bag.
Marc Anthony Hydrating Coconut Oil Deep Conditioning TreatmentA post-shampoo deep conditioning mask containing coconut oil, shea butter and biotin, suitable for dry, damaged hair. There should be enough for one use on my long hair.
Pacifica Power of Love Natural Lipstick in Nudie RedThis was the product I wanted to love the most - a 100 per cent vegan, long-lasting lipstick. The shade is exactly MLBB and staying power is good. Sadly, it is dry and smells like Bobbi Brown Lip Colors do after a few weeks of purchase - waxy. Plus, it makes my currently-very-flaky lips (Thank you, tetracycline) look worse.
ModelCo Illusion Lip LinerThis was the meh product in this bag. The bright pink shade is definitely not "me". Goes into my giveaway bag.
VerdictNot my favourite bag of 2015, but definitely not the worst either. I love the Tarte powder and the Aveeno lotion, and the hair mask looks promising. I was disappointed by both lip products.
The January bag promises theBalm eyeliner pencils. I hope the bag does not contain any other pencil products - eye or lip. In fact, I would be delighted - though this is highly unlikely - if we had no more pencils at all in beauty subscriptions for the rest of 2016.
