This month’s Ipsy Glam Bag theme was “Beauty Blast,” a “universe of brilliant beauties.” I have to say that even though the makeup bag might be a wee bit tacky, I am loving it anyway. I love the stars and galaxy stuff so I did a little dance as soon as I opened up my Ipsy package to see this bag 😀

The Ipsy “Glam Bag” makeup case for November

Every month Ipsy sends out a makeup bag to hold all of the monthly goodies, hence the “Glam Bag” name. I have been subscribed to Ipsy for a couple years now so my mini makeup bag collection just keeps growing, forcing me to give away many of the bags I receive because I really don’t need that many. I am definitely going to be keeping this month’s bag, though! It’s a great size for makeup brushes and other cosmetics and it fits in my purse perfectly, plus it has pretty shades of pink, purple and blue, so I know I will be getting a lot of use out of it.

ModelCo Highlighting Trio in “Champagne, Peach Bellini & Bronze”

ModelCo Highlighting Trio ($20; modelcocosmetics.com): A light-reflecting, cream-to-powder formula that glides on smoothly to “enrich the complexion.” This compact includes a luminizer to highlight cheekbones (“Champagne”), a satin-finish blush for cheeks (“Peach Bellini”) and a glowing bronzer to help contour and define (“Bronze”). I haven’t tried this out for real just yet but I tested it quickly and I found that it goes on very smoothly. I think I’m going to try it out later today!

SLMissGlam Boutique Blusher Brush

SLMissGlam Boutique Blusher Brush ($14.50; slmissglambeauty.com): A (very cute) pink, girly blush brush made with synthetic hairs for a “soft and luxurious” makeup application. This hand-crafted brush can be used for both blush and bronzer and it is cruelty-free. I haven’t tried this one out just yet and I really like the brushes I already have, but this one is pretty adorable so I will definitely be testing it sometime over the next few days.

Absolute New York Nano Liner

Absolute New York Nano Liner ($9.99; absolutenyproducts.com): An ultra-fine, felt-tip eyeliner that allows for “pin point precision.” This formula is water-resistant, fade-resistant and smudge-resistant, and it is paraben- and fragrance-free. I tried this out quickly the other night and I did notice that it was very easy to use; I’m going to test out the longevity of this liner later today.

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara ($20; smashbox.com): Smashbox’s latest mascara formula that combines both lengthening and volumizing in one tube. This clump-free, flake-free formula was found to create a whopping 104% increase in lash volume, which is pretty amazing. I, myself, already love this mascara and I’m really happy that I received another deluxe-sized sample. I feel like I haven’t bought a full-sized mascara in ages because I’m always getting wonderful samples (and even full-sized tubes) in subscription boxes, gift sets, etc. So no complaints over here about this addition to the November Ipsy Glam Bag!

Coolway Strong Hold Spray

Coolway Strong Hold Spray ($19.95; coolwayhair.com): An “innovative volumizing spray” that controls humidity and fights frizz. I wasn’t really too crazy about this product because it has a more “wet” consistency than the type of hair spray I use (which is a very, very light spray). I did find it funny, though, that so many Ipsters hated this product just because of the outdated ’80’s-like packaging. That’s a great market research experiment on beauty product packaging, actually. I bet 75% (or more) of the people who said they didn’t like this product didn’t even try it out because of the way it looks. Well, maybe that’s a little unfair, but I think it’s pretty interesting. I don’t like the packaging either, by the way. ^_~

 

Subscription Box Breakdown:

This was an okay month for Ipsy — I didn’t really LOVE any of the products, except for the Smashbox mascara, which I already own. It’s really my fault that I got a less-than-spectacular Glam Bag because I haven’t been keeping up with my product reviews on the Ipsy website — the more I review received products, the more my Glam Bags will be curated to my specific brand and product likes. I did love the galaxy-inspired makeup bag this month though, so it was all worth it 😀

Pricing & Availability:

Ipsy Glam Bag is a monthly beauty subscription service that costs $10 per month plus a small tax. To subscribe click here, or head over to ipsy.com for more information.
