Ipsy Review: December 2012

So I just realized that I should be getting a tracking number from Ipsy within a day or two, but that I never reviewed my December bag.  Sorry, folks.  The flu took precedent.  I'll keep this (relatively) brief.The Bag - It's smaller in height than other bags, but it's the first I've gotten that's wide.
