November Ipsy Glam Bag-Glam It Up

Monday, November 18, 2013

*Ipsy referral links are included

Bag comes in this bright pink packaging. 

Love these Ipsy bags! Such a great deal. For only $10 a month you get a beautiful makeup bag filled with goodies to try. The makeup bag that comes with the goodies can be reused for traveling or storing products in. This month's bag is shiny gold and can double as a wrislet. This month's theme is Glam it Up and this wristlet/makeup bag sure is glam.

Gold and Pink Makeupbag/Wrislet

This month's bag included products from Michelle Phan's new makeup line. I have been curious about her products because I have read and seen reviews where people either loved or hated her products. To be honest I have a feeling they included the products to get them out there, honestly, I wasn't interested in buying anything from her line after the reviews I seen and read.

Another thing I like about Ipsy is that there is a website for you to create an account, you can view your points, what is in your Glam room etc, and see tons of videos/tutorials.

I do not get paid for having an Ipsy link, but for every person who subscribes through my link I get points. 

On to the goodies! Swatches will be at the bottom. 

Pixi Beauty Bronzer Subtly Suntouched

I am not a fan of bronzers that are super dark or shimmery, this isn't either. When I saw Pixi, I was happy because I got a Pixi mascara in a previous Ipsy Glam bag and it has worked out great for me. That is all I have from Pixi, after this bronzer, I may consider the brand more often. 

Nailtini Lacquer in Champagne

I was pleased to see a nail polish in the bag, without trying it on it reminded me of Julie G's Liquid Metal and Essie's Penny Talk. This lacquer is less opaque, even after 3 coats. I don't have a swatch because I removed it the same day. It does make a small (thumb) appearance in my instagram account-picture of me holding my wonderful cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee. 

BE A BOMBSHELL in Hot Damn Lip Crayon

Some of you may know, I am scared of dark, bold, bright colors. So I don't usually buy them. I don't mind receiving them in my Ipsy bag if the rest of my items are great. This is the case with this bag, and I'll have this lip crayon if I ever decide to wear it and or use it as a light stain. 

TRESemme Extra Firm Control Hair Spray Travel Size

I don't love using hairspray, I only use it if I am styling my hair for an event, or have fly aways... Below is a picture I posted on my instagram, I did a messy pony with day old curls and used this spray a bit for the fly aways.

.em Michelle Phan Cosmetics Pillow Plush Cushiony Lip Balm in Strawberry

The lip balm... It is ok, I don't LOVE the smell, the color is fine, it is a sheer strawberry color. I have it on my desk and have been applying it every so often to test it out. 

Starlooks Gem Pencil in Topaz

This pencil looks like I may not get much use out of it, maybe for a unique holiday look... MAYBE. It is smooth and goes on thin, just not sure if I will use it much because of the color, it is also shimmery.

  1. I really am enjoying this months bag, so many great things!

    I also got the bronzer, but it's a bit too shimmery for my liking so I'm using it as a blush and it is working out fine.

    My EM product was a mascara, I'm really excited to try that and get a review up.

  2. I have to admit I wasn't too excited to try em. either. It's cool that I got it and I will try it, but I won't be rushing to the website to buy anything. I've heard too many mixed reviews to bother spending my money on it. I got the mascara and the lip balm (I get 2 bags). My lip balm is a pretty pink color and smells like bubblegum. I haven't really given it a try yet, but I think I'll keep in my purse just in case I need it.

    I got the bronzer too and probably won't use it. I'm the opposite of you. Pretty much every Pixi product I've tried I've hated and given away. They just don't work well for me.

    I agree about the Starlooks eyeliner. I think the only time it'll get used is for the Christmas, New Years Eve/Day, and Halloween. I definitely can't see myself incorporating it into everyday looks.

    Thanks for sharing your bag with us!

    Neya :)

  4. This ipsy has really great items in there! And I love your ponytail! XOXO, Sissi
