Ipsy November 2013

This month's theme is Glam It Up and the products come in a very festive gold pouch.

6 Products included:
Nailtini Nail Lacquer in Champagne
em Lash Gallery Dramatic Volume waterproof mascara in black
bh cosmetics Galaxy Chic Baked Eyeshadow in Sun
Pixi Beauty Bronzer in Subtly Suntouched
Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in Shameless
Starlooks Eyeliner pencil in Amethyst

As I was opening my Ipsy bag this month, I didn't think I would enjoy the bag as much. But as I open up the products and swatch them one by one, I get more excited as the product shades are right up my alley and I know I will use them.

Pixi bronzer is a very subtle soft brown with a hint of pink. I haven't tried any bronzer or blush from Pixi and I really like the shade. Very wearable and not orange. 

bh Cosmetic baked eyeshadow in Sun is a very pretty copper brownish tone shadow. 

be a Bombshell lip crayon in Shameless is a raspberry plum color. It is very smooth and quite moisturizing. I am loving lip crayon more and more these days and I don't have anything in this plum color family yet and it is the perfect fall color. Will have to test it out and see how long it last on my lips.

Quite happy to get the em cosmetic mascara. The wand is very similar to my favorite mascara, Maybelline falsies volume express waterproof. This one is also waterproof so I know I will use it. Very rare do I receive waterproof mascara in my beauty bags. Also heard a lot of good reviews about this new brand by Michelle Phan and they are not shipping to Canada yet so I am very excited to try out products from her line.

Last but not least is a nail lacquer by Nailtini. It is my third polish from my Ipsy bags. Do they hear that I love rose gold/champagne shades? I am so happy I receive this shade. 

Overall, very pleased with the products I receive in this bag. Only product that I may not use is the Starlooks eyeliner. But other than that, I know I will use every single product.

What did you receive in your November Ipsy bag?


  1. they must have heard you! the nail polish looks gorgeous. :)
    i like that this service has a theme going on each month!

    1. I see different nail polish this month from other bloggers and I'm so glad I got this shade. It is not exactly rose gold but has a more brownish tone to it which I still think it is very pretty.

  2. I was wondering about em cosmetics its great that you got to try it out and like it. I love that polish as well!

    1. The em cosmetics mascara is actually very good. I have very stubborn lashes and can only wear waterproof version to keep my curls in. This one holds up my curls and seems to stay on pretty long. Liking it a lot so far. I just wish em cosmetics will sort out its international shipping soon so we Canadians can try out the brand.

  3. Almost all items are the same for me, except for one, and then different colours on others. I posted mine yesterday too. I was really amazed by all the full size items this month and really happy with all of them.

    1. You got the GlamGlow mask. I have been wanting to try that so bad. Looking forward to see what you think about that.
