November 2013 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

Obviously it’s not November but I thought I’d catch up on my Ipsy bag reviews! Enjoy 🙂

  1. Em Michelle Phan Lash Gallery Waterproof Mascara Full size, value: $16 – This was a full size mascara! It has a curved “fluffy” brush and I feel like it makes my lashes look thicker and I really like the formula of this mascara. I feel like it really darkened my lashes. That being said, I don’t think I would actively go out and buy this mascara, not worth the $16.
  2. BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Baked Eyeshadow Sample Sample size, approx. value: $3 – Now I thought this was really cool, my sample is in the colour Asteroid! This eyeshadow is actually a part of a whole galaxy themed palette which CRAZY affordable ($15 for the full palette) and the colours are to die for! This shadow is very pigmented and because there is a blend of colours you can create a different eye shadow look each time 🙂 Really loved this unique product and can’t wait to try out some of the other great things that BH has to offer!
  3. Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon – Full size, value: $14 – I got mine in the colour Hot Damn and it’s a really bright red with a bit of a hot pink undertone. I like the colour but the product itself is just OK. Don’t really think it’s worth the $14.
  4. Nailtini Nail Polish – Full size, value: $13 – Yet another full sized product in this month’s bag! I received this in the colour Caviar Cocktail.  I’ve never heard of this brand before but I really like the colour and it went on opaque. Really nice colour for the holiday season!
  5. Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil – Full size, value: $14 – I got this in the colour Amethyst and when I saw it online I was not excited for it, it just seemed like it would look tacky but when I received it in the mail and swatched it I was in love!!! It’s a beautiful metallic silver with flecks of teal. I put it on my waterline and inner corner of my eye and it really makes my eyes pop. I really recommend this product if you’re looking to make your eyes stand out and sparkle 🙂
  6. Pixi Bronzer – Deluxe sample size, value: 5.65  – The colour I received mine in the colour Subtly Suntouched and that is exactly what it makes your face look like! Great for someone with paler skin (like me!) Really gives a nice subtly bronzed glow. Definitely a good winter bronzer as it’s not too over bearing. I also found this was a good contour colour because it doesn’t have too much glitter or sheen to it.

Total value:  $65.65

What I paid: $15

The Ipsy bag for the month of November contained 4 full sized products that were all about $15 retail and I was quite pleased with all of the products. Such a great deal for only $10 for the whole bag!
