Ipsy - November 2013

I'm so excited! I'm trying a new subscription which is Ipsy. I've literally been waiting months (maybe weeks) on the wait list and it's finally my turn. Yay!

Ipsy is all about being fabulous. It's a beauty subscription bag and it's only $10 a month, with free shipping (just like Birchbox) that comes in a different makeup bag each month! They also have a points reward system for doing reviews on your monthly products (10 points each). You can save up enough points to redeem them for monthly bonus items for your glam bag

As you can see, I received a lot of full size items this month, all with a value of over $70+. I think I'm in love! This month's theme is "Glam It Up". Also the makeup bag is sooooo cute!

Pixi Beauty Bronzer in summertime
Em Michelle Phan Pillow Cushiony Lip Balm in vanilla

I've honestly never tried bronzer before so this will definitely be new to me. It's shimmery and light. I have heard about the Pixi brand and this sample size is cool. However, I know that Michelle Phan is one of the few stylists behind Ipsy so it's really cool that she's letting her subscribers try her products...at FULL SIZE!

Nailtini Straight Up Color Nail Laquer in champagne
Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in hot damn

I love trying new nail polishes no matter the brand! I've never heard of Nailtini so this will be a new experience as is most of the items in this bag. The color is close to a nude sparkle in my eyes so it's great for this season and it's also full size so it'll last awhile. The lip crayon is also amazing and bright! I love the color because you can never go wrong with reds. It goes on pretty smooth and doesn't have a dry stain feeling. Did I mention that this is also FULL SIZE. Be a Bombshell can be my new favorite!

Cailyn Built in Sponge Tip Mineral Eye Shadow in champagne
Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil in amethyst 

I'm assuming that autumn's color is champagne which is really not a bad look. The Cailyn mineral eye shadow goes on like a smooth glitter dust but stays in place like a shadow. The color is really light but works well with my brown eyes. What I really adore is the Starlooks gem eye pencil in amethyst because I've never had a pencil in any other color besides black. I've never heard of these brands either so it was fun to try something new...in full size!

I definitely had fun this month going through all of the items. I will stay a glam bag subscriber with Ipsy because it was so worth the wait! Can't wait until next month. :)
