Ipsy November Glam Bag 2013

November’s Ipsy Glam Bag arrived recently, and I couldn’t wait to share with you what I received. This month’s bag was titled “Glam It Up” and I could definitely see me coming up with a glittery, lush look for New Years Eve and the holidays.  This November Ipsy was a generous selection of 5 full sized products and one ‘sample’ sized product (Pixi’s Bronzer which in my opinion could have passed for a full size too).  The bag was a really cute and fun gold snake skin with a hot pink zipper - not the best bag in terms of its quality, but the cute colors and wristlet feature make up for that.

Now, for a quick over look and first impression of the products - the Kiss lashes (#03) were a great set for a beginner lash girl like me.  The Kiss product included two sets of natural lashes, an applicator, and lash glue.  The Nailtini “Caviar Cocktail” polish is a metallic chrome grey that is suited perfectly for the fall months.  The Be A Bombshell cosmetics “Shameless” twist up lip crayon is a pink-ish berry shade with silver glitter - it swatches opaque in two coats, feels comfortable on the lips, and the shade is quite lovely and unique.

The Pixi Beauty Bronzer in “Subtly Suntouched” is a perfect matte bronzer with subtle golden shimmer - this bronzer will suit fair skin tones and will help warm up the complexion. The Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil in “Amethyst” might be my favorite product in Ipsy’s “Glam It Up Bag”.  The Starlooks pencil is very soft, pigmented, and the color is a gorgeous metallic silver purple.  Lastly, I also received the EM Cosmetics Waterliner in “Grey.” I wasn’t too happy with having another grey eyeliner included, but these two products turned out to be quite different.  The Em Waterliner gives off a darker, olive toned grey color and seems to be longer lasting due to a tougher, dry consistency.  I was glad I had the chance to try a full size EM Cosmetics product, but I can’t say it’s my favorite eyeliner formula.

Because of all the recent Ipsy variations, I’m curious what your thoughts are on these products and what you received in your own Ipsy November Glam Bag. Also, let me know in the comments if you have any recommendations on how to wear the grey eye liner pencils (since I now have two!).  If you would like to sign up for this subscription service ($10/month), visit Ipsy here (affiliate link).  I am loving the Ipsy’s subscription so far, and I really recommend it for its value and wide range of products (I even convinced my sister to try it!).

Stay Pretty, Mackenzie
