ipsy November 2017 Glam Bag

Halloween came by and went as well as Thanksgiving. I’ve been quite busy the past few weeks that posting on here just hasn’t been on top of my list. But the holiday season is now here and the pile of things for me to review are stacking up. Since I got most of my Christmas shopping done already, I can focus on other stuff (like this blog) more. Here’s what I got in my ipsy November 2017 Glam Bag.

I’m not sure if I like or dislike the bag. What I know is it made me think of one of my closest friends immediately so I might just give this to her. First item that caught my eye is the Kensie Perfume. The size I got is the purse sprayer mini deluxe. Since I’m not a fan of trying new scents (most gives me a headache), I will be passing this on to another close friend of mine that simply lovvvves perfumes. Next item that caught my eye is the Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Bitten & Bronzed Matte Bronzer. The packaging is just so eye-catching, as what I have come to expected with anything Lisa Frank. Since I’m not adding more bronzers to what I already have for the moment, I will be passing this on as a stocking stuffer extra for one of my nieces. Then we have the em Infinite Lip Cloud. I liked their mascara a lot so I’m sure the quality of this product is pretty good. The shade I got this in is called Rose Nude. Next we have the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush. The shade I got this in is called Feisty. This is a nice shade but I’m not sure if I’m going to keep it or give it away. I do like their stuff a lot. Last up is Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara.

Overall, it’s okay but this is making me look forward to what December has to offer more. Since it’s for Christmas, I’m hoping it will have something that wows me. 🙂

ipsy November 2013 Glam Bag

Hey guys! It’s that time of the month again! I was going to blog about this maybe next week, but I got so excited about it that I just couldn’t wait. This is probably my favorite ipsy Glam Bag to date! I love the contents, I kept all but one item for my personal use, and I love the bag a lot. So, here’s my take on the ipsy November 2013 Glam Bag.

First off, I LOVE the bag! I can use it as a clutch and it’s perfect for this Holiday season! Next, I am keeping every single item but one for my personal use. That’s a first! I’ll be passing on the Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil. I have too many eye pencils from a handful of brands already that are not getting enough use (and love) from me. I can’t justify opening up this pretty, so I’ll add it to my next giveaway. The shade I got for that is Amethyst. I’m keeping the GLAMGLOW YOUTHMUD Tinglexfoliate Treatment cause I’ve never heard of it and I love trying new things like this especially from a new-to-me brand. The retail of this particular item is actually pretty crazy, so color me intrigued. I have a lot of bronzers already (hello Physicians Formula!) but I still couldn’t resist the Pixi Beauty Bronzer I got in Subtly Suntouched. Not bad, but I still prefer the cuter packaging and presentation of my favorite bronzer brand Physicians Formula. It does give me a light, subtle sunny glow. I’m familiar with Nailtini so I’m keeping this shade. It will make my total number of Nailtini lacquers 3 and it’s a good shade for this time of the year too with all the Holiday parties and such. I haven’t tried the em michelle phan mascara yet, but it’s on my list to do so. I have read several reviews about it and it’s pretty mixed, so I’ll reserve judgment until I try it. Last item in my glam bag is from another new-to-me brand called Be A Bombshell. It’s catchy and I like it! I was nervous that I wouldn’t like the lip crayon, but it is instant love! It goes on so smooth and creamy. Pigmentation is like from a lipstick or those pigmented lip balms that every brand is releasing now. The shade I got is Hot Damn and I think it would suit me better than the other shade they have that went to other people’s glam bags (purple one I think). It’s a great bag overall and I am ecstatic about it!

Overall, great bag! I love pretty much everything I got and I can’t wait to use the bag itself for some of the holiday events and parties I’ll be attending. I can’t wait for next month’s bag now!
