I am not one to shy away from spoilers. I sometimes like knowing what is going to happen in the future of a TV show or movie, or occasionally books. There is one place I will not stand for spoilers: Ipsy. I love the surprise of "What's in the bag?" in my most dramatic Brad Pit impression. (Extra points if you catch the reference I'm trying to make there.) My sister and I have gotten into the habit of texting each other when we get the mail in, so we don't go instagraming pictures and spoiling the others fun. So, hopefully you have looked away by now, if you're bag has not yet come in.
em Cosmetics Lash Gallery
I'm fairly excited to try this, as em has obviously gotten a lot of online buzz. It is supposed to be dramatically volumizing, unfortunately I can tell as I am still working through a good deal of other mascaras.
Be a... Bombshell Cosmetics Lip Crayon in Shameless
This is a annoying product because it is a nice red with decent staying power and mineral oil. The color is a little bit like that unnatural pink that red lipsticks often stain your lips, so I do prefer this layer rather than alone. So far, it's nice but I don't think I'll be using this up anytime soon.
Nailtini Nail Lacquer in Champagne
This is the champion in the bag, I do believe I already did a posting about this a few weeks back. I wore this color for a few weeks in a row, so that will tell you how much I like it. The downside is that it smell very strongly, headache inducing strong, so paint with a fan on.
Pixi Beauty Bronzer in Subtly Suntouched
$18.00 with Kabuki
I have come to like this brand through my introduction of it via Ipsy. I haven't tried much, just a polish that I picked up after receiving a mascara in my Ipsy bag, but I was quite impressed with the quality and I am happy to see another product fall into my collection. This looks like a blush bronzer combo once applied. Definitely a good way to condense on the go.
Starlooks Gem Pencil in Amethyst
This is okay. It's the second liner pencil I've gotten from Starlooks in my Ipsy bag and, if this is their ambassador product, it's not doing much for my want to shell out cash on the brand. They're okay for liner, if you want something smudgy and smokey, but they wear off so easily, even with a primer underneath. As a shadow base, it fades, as I said, plus who has the time to fill in their eyelid with a slim pencil?
BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Backed Eyeshadow in Sun
$22.95 for full pallet.
This color looks very unappealing in the packaging, a bright orange-red, but after I swatches it I realized it's a lovely warm bronze. A well done surprise. I cant see myself needing the whole pallet, as some BH shadows have proven to be flops, but I think this shadow will be nice for simple days and the summer, though that seems ages away.
I really enjoyed this November bag. So now that it's almost December Ipsy time, what did you think of your products?
