Ipsy Glam Bag: November

November Glam Bag

November Glam Bag


It’s that Ipsy time of the month again. I’m on the fence on whether or not I’m happy with this month’s bag. On one hand, the bag itself is great and I’m not mad at any of the products but it seems like I’ve gotten a few of these things before. Let’s dive in, shall we?

Starlooks Gem Pencil in Topaz – In my 7 months with Ipsy, this has been my 3rd Starlooks Pencil. I mean, there are worse pencils, but there are certainly better. This one in Topaz is a SUPER glittery silver. In a lot of glitter eye pencils, the glitter gets clumpy and the pencil is hard to apply but this one applys pretty smooth. So that’s good, but I’m just not sure how often I’ll wear a super glittery pencil like this. It could be a fun accent on the bottom lash line or good as a super sparkly base for a Holiday look.

BH Cosmetics Baked Galaxy Chic Eyeshadow in Aphrodite – Again, this is the 2nd time I’ve gotten a BH shadow sample in my bag…but this one, I’m not complaining about. I’m a big fan of BH Cosmetics and had been eyeballing the Galaxy Chic Baked Shadow Palette for a while but I’m just not generally a fan of baked shadows. This one, is gorgeous. It’s a beautiful shimmery rusty color that is perfect for the season and the color payoff is fab. Ok BH, I’ll buy your palette!

Nailtini Nail Polish in Champagne – My second Nailtini polish in 7 months. (Are we seeing a pattern here?) The color is a beautiful rose gold. I’ll wear it and if the formula is like the last Nailtini polish I got, I’ll like it.

Pixi Beauty Bronzer in Subtly Suntouched – I have very fair skin, and this hardly shows up on ME so for them to call it a bronzer is a bit of a stretch. It has a nice satin finish, so I apply it heavily, could probably use it as a nice natural blush. If i just dust it all over my face, it could probably be good to just warm up my complexion. The moral of this is, it will work for me, because I’m so fair, but on people with darker skin tones, this will probably be a bust product.

Be A Bombshell Lip Crayon in Hot Damn – I love this. That’s it. I love the color, (a pretty pinky red). I love the formula. I love the name. I love the lip crayon form. Love and Win!

Em Cosmetics Lipstick in Don’t Tell Mom – Em is the new cosmetic line from Michelle Phan who is a popular YouTube Beauty Guru. I’ve heard mixed reviews of her line on the internets so I was happy to get something to try out for myself. The color I got is a BRIGHT hot pink and something that I have a lot of already in my collection. There is no lack of color payoff with this bad boy. You put it on your lips and BAM! It feels good on the lips and the wear is average but I’m not going: WOW! I’m going to go pay $16.50 for another one of these lipsticks. Yeah, a bit pricey. But in my $10 Ipsy bag, I’ll take it!

So overall, not a bad $10 investment for, if nothing else, a super cute bag and a LOVE lip crayon.

Ipsy Glam Bag: June

Hey everyone! We are back from our UK Vacay and back to the disgusting heat of Texas in the summer. We had an awesome time and I picked up quite a few beauty items on the trip that I’ll share with you guys in a future post. BUT FIRST! Waiting patiently in the mail when we returned was my Ipsy Glam Bag for June and it did not disappoint at all.

Ipsy Glam Bag: June

Ipsy Glam Bag: June


Here’s the breakdown:

Let’s first start with the bag itself. Animal print and neon? Duh! Super cute and it feels more durable than the bag last month. (Not that I’ve had a problem with the bag from last month, just an observation!).

1. J. Cat Eyelashes and Glue Style EL99. These look really nice for a super glam look. The are long and a little flared at the ends, which will be great for a cat eye look. The band doesn’t look bulky or thick so I have high hopes that they will go on nicely. They also say they are 100% human hair….which I can’t lie, kind of creeps me out…are all lashes human hair? I don’t know. Anyway, I’ll try to remember to do a post when I wear them…maybe that false eyelash post that I’ve been meaning to do forever!

2. J. Cat Sparkling Cream Palette in Volta. Another J. Cat product. I’ve never heard of the brand but I’m going to go check out the line for sure. I’m not sure what to think about this glitter palette. It says to use caution around the eye area and I can see why since the glitter comes out super chunky. I’ll stick to my eye-safe Eye Kandy glitters for eye looks. So I guess it’s supposed to be a body glitter product? I’m not quite sure what I’ll use it for but I’ll put it in my professional kit and see if I can come up with a use for it there.

3. Cailyn Line Fix Gel Eyeliner in Iron. I actually have heard super good things about the Cailyn liners and had wanted to purchase one myself. So thanks Ipsy! I got the color Iron which is a pretty gunmetal grey. This stuff lasts for sure. I swatched it on my hand and literally had to scrub to get it off! The only thing to take into consideration is that it dries super fast so you have to work quick. Other than that, I love it and will have to invest in some more colors for super long wear.

4. Starlooks Tickle Me Pink Lip Pencil. I have heard of the Starlooks brand and had been cruising their site not to long ago so I was happy to see something from the brand in my bag. Lip pencils are something that are seriously lacking in my collection. I don’t really wear them as often as I should and never find myself gravitating to them at the store. So many more exciting things than lip liner. Tickle Me Pink is a really pretty true pink color and the pencil glides on very smooth. Not much other to say than it’s a lip pencil, and I like it.

5. NYX Mosaic Powder in Dare. Loves me some NYX and I don’t have any of their blushes so holler again to Ipsy! The Mosaic Powder is a powder blush comprised of 5 colors that you swirl together. The color that Dare comes out being is quite lovely. Not sparkly or matte but a nice satin finish that turns out peachy pink. Savy Likes!

So again, my Ipsy experience is a win! I also got a bonus Bauble Bar Bracelet for having 2 people sign up for the service! Shout out to Monica and Kymberli!
