Ipsy Bag for November is Glam It Up!

Ipsy Bag for November



Purchased by me


Ipsy has done it again! The Ipsy November’s bag is glamalicious and one of the best this year!  It’s chock full of makeup which I prefer over skincare. In case you didn’t know, Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription box for only $10/month. You get 4-5 full size beauty products each month. This month there were 6 products in my bag, I’m not sure if that is because Ipsy Glam Bag is celebrating their 1 year anniversary or if they included an extra for the holidays. Either way, I’m down with it. Ipsy now has a referral program and you can earn points to cash in for extra goodies. My referral link is here if you choose to use it. Shipping is always free, and I can honestly say this is the best value of all the subscription boxes I’ve tried. After a full year of getting Ipsy I have never been disappointed. Now let’s take a look at what’s in my fab November bag!

Ipsy bag for November

Ipsy Bag for November

Pixi Beauty Bronzer (full price $16) – I’m really loving this bronzer! Subtly Sunkissed is perfect for pale skinned girls like me. In fact, I had a heck of a time trying to photograph the swatch because it’s almost the exact shade of my skin. It has very subtle shimmer. This is one way I know Ipsy is paying attention to my profile because this is MY shade of bronzer! 25% off any purchase at pixibeauty.com with code BronzePixi

Ipsy Bag for November

em Michelle Phan Pillow Plush Cushiony Lip Balm in Strawberry (full size $15)- this is the first em product I’ve tried. The balm is smooth and non-sticky, the shade is a very sheer light red. However, I do not like pot glosses, especially one without an included brush. This is just okay for me. Ipsy discount: 30% any em product with code ipsy30.

Ipsy Bag for November

Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in hot damn (full size $14)– I received a Be a Bombshell blush in another Ipsy bag that I love–very pigmented and great quality. This crayon has a nice feel and doesn’t pull or tug. Hot damn is a bright orangy/red. Another plus for this pencil is that it is self-sharpening. The blush from this brand is awesome and with 40% you really should try it. Receive 40% off any purchase and a free Coco Delight Lip Gloss with code IPSY40.

Ipsy Bag for November

TRESemmé Tres Two Spray Hairspray (sample size $5?) – Purse hairsprays are so great to throw in your bag. With my fine hair, I need a hairspray touch-up often so I appreciate this.

Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil In Topaz (full size $14) – I thought Topaz was an amber color? Oh well, this metallic silver eyeliner will look great for the holidays. It’s very pigmented and creamy. Sorry for no pic, but there is a swatch pic below.

Nailtini Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer (full size $13) – this shimmering Champagne shade is stunning! It’s  a rose gold with tiny silver sparkle. I love golds on my tips, but it has to be a warm gold and this is it! Receive 50% off and a free eyeliner with a $25 purchase at tinibeauty.com

Left to Right: Pixi Subtly Sunkissed bronzer, Starlooks Topaz eyeliner, Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in hot damn and em Pillow Plush Cushiony Lip Balm in Strawberry.

Bottom Line:  My November Ipsy Bag has an astounding total value of $77 for only $10! The only product I probably won’t use is the em lip balm and that’s just because I don’t care for lip pots. I’m still glad I got to try something from the em brand. I know that Ipsy is paying attention to my profile, because the bronzer is a light shade, the gold nail polish is a warm shade as is the lip crayon. Bravo Ipsy!!

  1. I seriously love your bag more than mine and I didn’t even think that would be possible lol em cosmetics are addicting!

  2. So interesting to see what everybody got in their bag. I was thrilled to get 6 products too! My items were very similar to yours, except I got nude lipstick from e.m. (unfortunately not the right shade of nude for me but nice anyway) and I got baked red eye shadow from BH Cosmetics instead of the Tresemmme hairspray that I wouldn’t need. And added bonus, my ipsy bag arrived on time and didn’t get lost this month, yay!

  3. I wish they offered a cruelty free bag. I would totally sign up.

  4. Great bag you got this month!

    I got that same bronzer in my bag and I’m loving it too! Being so pale, I have never found a bronzer that suited me so well before.

  5. Ipsy has been a consistently fun package to receive every month. I loved this one. Great review!
