Ipsy - January 2016 - Sneak Peeks

I know, I'm trying Ipsy again. I got an email saying if I signed up (or anyone for that matter) they would send me an EM mascara. Since I love mascara, and I love extra goodies, I signed up (again...) I hope I don't regret this. I'm kind of angry about the conversion rate though. I know it's not Ipsy's fault, but it sucks that what is supposed to be a $10 bag, turns into a $14.95 bag because of shipping. And that's not all... that's in US dollars. So not only do Canadians have to pay the shipping, we also have to pay the conversion rate. My bag came to something like $20 or $21 dollars. That's DOUBLE the price they advertise it for. So this bag better have some good value, or I better like it. I think Canadians should at least get an extra product or SOMETHING to make up for it. Anyway, rant over. I'm sure I will rant about it again when I post the review. Here are the sneak peeks for January 2016!
PS - I'm just throwing it out there... I need a new eyelash curler. Please make this happen! :)

The Bag - looks like it's this pattern. I have to say, I'm not a fan of it. I'd flat out say it's ugly but I know some people online really liked it. I know people have their own preferences. This will be probably be donated.

Sneak Peek #1
All eye shadows!

JCat Beauty - Blinkie Shimmer Eyeshadow
City Color Eyeshadow Trio - Eyeshadow Trio Falling In Leaves
Pixi by Petra - Mesmerizing Mineral Duo in Lavender Bloom
Hikari Cosmetics - Cream Metallic Pigment Shadow
Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow

I have eyeshadow coming out the wazoo, but you can always use more! Ha! I'm all about that Hikari shade. So Ipsy, if you're reading this... I need that one! I don't care if it's pressed, or a pigment. I just need it. Thanks! And if for some reason I can't have the Hikari, I will settle for the Pixi by Petra, or even the City Color Eyeshadow Trio, if it's those shades!

Edit: The Hikari shows this shadow looking bronze on their site. In Ipsy's post it kind of looks taupe. If it's bronze, I don't want it lol. 

Sneak Peek #2
Great assortment of products!

Jelly Pong Pong - Fairy Lashes Curl
Peek Beauty - Natural Stain Brow Powder
Trestique Mini Matte Lip Crayon
Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics -  Satin Lipstick in Vengeance
Crown Brush - Brow Duo Brush
Coastal Scents - Pearl Shadow Angle Large Brush (doesn't this look like ELF to you?!)
Skone Cosmetics - Smudger Brush
Beau Gachis Paris - Smudge Brush

Out of all of these, I think I would want to try the mascara the most (even though I feel I'd probably be let down) or that berry lipstick in the bottom left!

Sneak Peek #3

This one is pretty exciting... at least to me!

Salon Perfect - Perfect Brow Pomade
Ofra Cosmetics - Universal Eyebrow Pencil
Burts Bees - Cleansing Oil
Skyn Iceland - Travel Sized Glacial Cleansing Cloths
Hada Labo Tokyo - Express Renewal Eye Mask
Hey Honey - Open Your Eyes Eye Contour Lifting Fluid
Peek Beauty - Natural Stain Brow Powder (Also shown in SP2)
Tucker Ashley - Advanced Peptide Eye Complex
Pur~Lisse - Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum

For myself.. I'd love to try the cleansing oil, the cleansing cloths, or the eye mask. I don't really want eye cream because I have a couple already (and I forget to use them lol)

Sneak Peek #4

Another large assortment of products...

Hanalei - Sugar Lip Scrub
Promise Organic - Ultra Moisturizing Argan Creme Facial Lotion
Mitchell and Peach - English Leaf Body Cream
Klorane - Floral Water Makeup Remover with Soothing Cornflower
Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion
Lasting Smiles - Lip Balm in Peppermint Creme
VLuxe by iEnvy - VLuxe Eyelashes with Mini Lash Glue

I guess out of all of this I'd want the lip balm, or lip scrub. I have a Lush lip scrub that barely has a dent in it, so I feel I probably wouldn't use this immediately if I were to get one. I definitely DON'T want eyelashes, or any of the lotions.

Sneak Peek #5

Everyone will receive a Mr. Write (Now) by theBalm Cosmetics.
These are eyeliners and will come in either "Jack B. Bronze" which is a rich bronze, or "Scott B. Bordeaux" which is a deep purple.

I guess between the two the purple would make my green eyes stand out more, but I prefer black eyeliner the most. 

This is all that is up for now! As the sneak peeks come out, I will update this again!

ETA: Our early access is up, and I know what I'm getting in my bag. Am I excited about it? No.. not really. I'm going to hold off on posting it until all the spoilers have been released.

Another ETA: I've decided I'm not going to post my early access glam room, and leave the surprise for my glambag review!
