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!
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
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.
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.
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!!
